I Miss Her


Recommended Posts

It has been 8 days since Ruby left us. I still look for her all day long, listen for her feet coming down the hall, and yesterday, while I was napping in another room, I swear I heard her rustling around. I just miss her.

We have a 18 month old Poodle mix who is sweet, and silly, but there was such a sense of calm seeing Ruby laying upside down on her bed.

I miss her

I get it. Even with Petunia here, I'm still looking for Rocket to come waltzing down the hallway with a big smile on his face. It gets better, but it takes a long time. Hang in there.

Of course you do :bighug

 

"You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp. --- Anne Lamott

time, it's all about time. all the statements above are so true. we still miss felix and so does his partner in crime jamie. i find that donating most of their belonging helps the healing process. our local pound was delighted to get felix's old coats and collars. i did the same with annie's goods. i've kept a couple of special things, just in case another dog of his statue comes into our life.

It will get better...

 

This is one of my favourite sayings...

We donated all of her things (except for a couple of special collars) to Project Pooch, which is a program ran by our local juvenile prison. They have an amazing program training dogs and then adopting them out. They were very thankful, and said that with the cut backs on taxes, they are afraid they will not get many donations.

 

Thank you all.. I know my post was silly, of course we all miss them when they are gone. The house just seems out of balance. We moved here 10 years ago, and we brought Ruby home the following Summer. She belonged here.
