Wowzers thanks all of you, I posted this on my original thread but not sure how many saw it & I feel I need to make it known how wonderful you all are. Your support has really been the best boost anyone could receive, thank you all from the bottom of my heart ❤️
Hi all and thank you for all your heartwarming hugs,wishes and understanding. it really does help!! having people around who understand me and the pain im going through physically and mentally really does help x
i never expected his loss the affect me so badly, but it has. our 'charlie' was a great dog, he made our great little family complete. he made us laugh every day! he was always there to comfort you & greet you when you came home. he lived for his walks and his tail never stopped wagging until he returned home, ready for a drink, treat or dinner. i miss the routine as well as the company. I miss the silliness of him the noise and even the smells ( some weren't so pleasant). ive had to move the furniture so that there isnt a gaping hole where his bed should be...boy was that a real low - moving the bed out.
i recommend reaching out to you wonderful people when needed. im not one for sharing my feelings but it was so cathartic to put down a little of what i was feeling this morning. after reading just a few of the great supportive and sympathetic replies i was able to have a little weep and then sleep.
I also recommend making a memory box my son and i went through all our photos we had of charlie (my new profile picture is just one), ordered some and have made a box with toys, little memories and photos - your kindness will go in too.
im now going to take time out from the few stresses i have in life, something i should have done a week ago, but we live and learn.
thank you again for your continued (as I'm writing i can see more coming in) outpouring of love and kindness, this is truly a great community!
