In early 2000, when Rickie was 22 months old, my parents were killed in a car crash and Rickie came to live with me. I had two old dogs at the time, and lost both of them that year as well. Rickie was my light.

 

And so this afternoon, at 15 1/2, Rickie left my arms to fly back into the waiting arms of my dad. The joy of that reunion is the glue holding my heart together.

 

Forever,

 

Rickiesmom

My eyes are filled with tears for your losses, both past and present. :cry1:weep

I am very sorry for the loss of your special boy. He sounds like a perfect pup to me as they will make you smile even when they are getting into trouble. You gave him a great life and you were both lucky to have each other. I know the pain of his passing and hope in time you will smile when you think of your special boy.

 

Run free Rickie, run free sweetie...:gh_run

Rickie sounds like just the best bud all around. And when life thru him lemons, he made lemonade.

His story brings tears -- as you said, though, he is once again whole & having a wonderful reunion. You couldn't have done anymore for me. He was fortunate to have you, and it sounds like you him. :grouphug

I'm so sorry you lost the dear companion that you had such a wonderful, complex history with. Rickie's absence will leave a huge empty space, but I'm glad you are able to smile through tears when thinking of his reunion with your Dad.

This just breaks my heart Mary. Little Rickie was a huge character in a small package and had definite ideas of who was the most special pup in the house! I am so glad I had the pleasure of spending some time with you, Rickie, Jaynie & Jeff this summer. I'm keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. {{{{{{hugs}}}}}}

Mary, I'm so so sorry. I can't begin to imagine how painful this is for you. How lucky he was to end up with you because no one could have loved him or cared for him like you. :grouphug

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.
