10/21/21 - It's almost 4:00 in the morning and I can't sleep. I reached down and you weren't there. I walked from room to room, looking for you. I didn't see you. You'd think I'd be used to it by now. After all, it's been 5 weeks. I miss you so much Baby Dog!!! Did I do enough? Say enough? There are so many things I still wanted to say, still wanted to do. Did you know you ARE loved? Do you still hate me? You haven't sent me any signs...|
10/14/21 - 4 wks ago, you left my side. I miss you more today than yesterday. You were my rock! I pray you and Poop are up there playing like you used to. I love you baby dog!!!
10/07/21 - 3 weeks, Baby Dog! How is this possible? Sometimes it seems like 3 years. My heart is so wrecked. Just when I think I can't cry anymore, the river just flows and flows. I'm at the point now where I'm asking myself what else could I have done? When I brought you home 16 and 1/2 years ago, I never even gave "that" day a second thought. I just knew that you were going to live forever. I miss everything about you. You are my baby, you used to lay on my lap. I could go on and on and on. The good memories are here I just can't focus on them yet. Thank you so much for being my baby for so long, always being loyal, always just being there for me. I will never be able to repay you. Love you, miss you, my little Stagey Pagey!
09/30/21 - 2 weeks, Baby Dog!!!
09/23/21 - It's only been 1 week today since you left my side, sweet baby dog. It seems like an eternity! I still can't believe you're gone! I love you and miss you more than words can say. The only thing that comforts me is knowing that you're no longer suffering. God made the decision that I could not. I will never get over you - 16 and 1/2 years of pure love was not enough!!! Rest easy my beautiful Stage...
09/16/21 - We knew this day was coming, you and I. I just wasn't expecting it to be all so sudden and so final so quickly. I just need you to know, baby dog, that I loved you from the moment I laid eyes on you. From 7 weeks to 16 years 7 months, you were my boy. You never really got over the death of your buddy, Poopie Puppy. Your health declined rapidly over the last few months. I hope you and Poopie Puppy are up in Heaven, with restored health and vitality, going for those walks that you both so deeply loved. I will once pick up dog beds and dog bowls and wash fold and put away the pads that you will no longer be using. It will be excruciating but I all I can think of is, that you are finally out of pain and no longer in the hell that you were living in. I know that you were holding on just for me because we were both still grieving. You did it as long as you could, baby dog. I thank you for that. I called the vet on Monday to make your arrangements but your body had other plans. Although I'm not happy with the way things went down, at least you were in my arms when you went to Heaven. I held you, rocked you and stroked your beautiful fur for 3 hours before they came to get you. Although you were not the talker like Poopie was, your presence is still going to leave a void in my life. Always my submissive, tolerant boy. Until we meet again, sweet boy, I love you and I miss you more than you will ever know...
