5 Months W/o Alan

Sometimes it seems like yesterday and other times it seems like a long time since I hugged and kissed my boy. It's getting cooler now and I remember how very much Alan liked this time of year, second best because I think Spring was his favorite. I feel his presence so much more the past two weeks - it's a very strong feeling, like he is here, as if I can go and touch him. I don't know why, but that's how it is now. He was one of the best things that ever happened to me and he was such a good, well-behaved boy. I miss him more than words can say. :brokenheart

I can certainly relate to your feelings. Darius also loved this time of year and those fawn boys look especially beautiful in Autumn :) I still do love my boy with all my heart. We are very much alike with these feelings. I adopted Nova who has Darius' heritage, although she will not take his place she helped me through it and also the passing of my beautiful Asia. I have not adopted another boy and may not for awhile. I urge you will adopt another soon and enjoy the love another greyhound will give to you :)

You feel him because he is with you still-and always will be. “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.”-Helen Keller :beatheart

Thankfully we don't have to understand everything. The heart truly does undrstand what the mind is not capable of.

“For love is as strong as death….

Many waters cannot quench love,

Nor can the floods drown it.”

Song of Solomon 8:6-7

This has just been my experience based on what my soumate Slim taught me after he crossed over. Hope it helps. :grouphug

Susan, I know how you feel sweetie. I still miss my girl so very much, but the joy of watching these two new boyz discover everything really brings a smile to my face.No one will ever replace our heart dogs but the new ones are sure a soothing balm for a broken one. :kiss2

I'm sorry. I know just how you feel. :(

 

I climb into bed at night, close my eyes and try to remember...and some things seem to be fuzzier, no matter how hard I try. Well, of course, except for the pain. That doesn't seem to have grown fuzzier at all.

 

It sucks.

I know how you feel, too! I have been reflecting on Treat a lot lately, too. Maybe it's a sign he's sending you of things to come or that he's thinking of you, too. :)

Susan, I know exactly how you feel. With both Dewey and Loca's first bridge birthday coming up, we can't help but to think about how much we loved these very special hounds. I miss Alan, also.

:f_red Thinking of you here Susan.

 

I have Alan's picture above my computer next to Misty, and I can just feel that they are together and will always be our guides.

Just like many others, I know the pain and grief you are feeling. When Crooke died, my heart was broken in two. Having Elphie come along just a few short weeks later really helped me to heal. Now I don't know what I'd do without her.

My bridge kids: Crooke & Mouse (always in my heart), Flake, Buzz, Snake, Prince (GSD), Justin & Gentry (Siamese), Belle (Aussie/Dalmatian mix), Rupert (amstaff) and Fred, Sirius, Severus, Albus, George, Hagrid, Hermione, Minerva, Marilyn, Wren, Molly, Luna, Tonks, Fleur, Ginny, Neville, Bill, Percy, Rose & Charlie (rats)

Saying how you could almost feel him reminded me of what happened to me 4 months after I lost Topaz. (she was my first loss and was only 5 yrs old)

 

I called an Animal Communicator. (still not 100% convinced they talk with animals). But I was worried about Onyx, the new dog because she seems so distant, I wanted to see how Brindle was getting along with Onyx and if she missed Topaz. And I wanted to know if Topaz was coming back.

 

Anita (communicator) told me that Topaz was with me in the room with the trophy. I looked around. I have a tiny house. There's no fireplace, no mantle, no trophy on a shelf. Nothing. Not even remotely close. She said it was similar to a dog show trophy.

 

Still nothing.

 

After I hung up with her, it hit me.

 

Three days earlier I had gone down into my basement to get something out of the dog pile for Onyx when I came across Topaz's little straw hat that I had bought at her last Dewey. I BAWLED BUCKETS. I hadn't cried that hard before or since. (not even when my youngest brother died)

 

Sitting not a foot away from that pile was a box of HORSE SHOW ribbons, and right on top, as if it were in a spotlight was a horse show trophy.

 

That was almost 10 yrs ago now and I still get goosebumps.

Ultimately, though very slowly, the sting and pain of the tragedy of their passing is replaced by the realization that their story is one of triumph and success. Alan was loved and cared for his whole life right to the end. That is the end-goal for me in adopting this precious breed: To fill their lives with contentment and joy, and you did that. In the end, Alan's story was a happy one. :f_white
