Carolyn: We wish that we could hold them and pet them forever. We wish we could tell them how much they mean to us, and that we'll always remember them...but they already know. I'm so, so sorry for you.

Thanks, Scott. I knew this was coming--he had cancer--but it's still hard.

I'm so sorry to read about this!! I know how much you love your animals. That is just plain hard to lose dog that way too.

I am so sorry to learn of your loss. We who have loved our pets do understand how sad you must be.

Carolyn, dear friend—I'm so very sorry for your loss, for your pain and sadness, for the emptiness you're now feeling in your life and heart. I wish I could say something to make things better, to ease the ache. But words are inadequate against grief so raw and real. Time will help. In the end, we have to accept that love and caring open us, make us vulnerable, while enriching our lives, allowing us to feel and experience. We can't have things just one way: to know joy, we must risk facing sorrow.

I often think dogs are not only one of God's greatest blessings, but a special companion sent expressly to teach us valuable lessons we're way too prone to forget without a daily reminder. For example, dogs teach us how to practice unconditional love—they love us for who we are, no matter our mood, regardless of our looks or age or social status; they show us how to live in the moment, to find happiness and have fun as best you can, whenever you can; they delight in companionship, especially friends and family, making allowances wherever needed; and they reiterate to us that time is fleeting, tomorrow always closer than we think.

To be owned by a dog is an honor. I know you gave your dog the best life he could have for as long as you both could manage. And I know it was too short. But I know, absolutely, that your dog loved you back.

I'm very sorry to read of your lost. I've heard you speak so fondly of Dog since our days in CAIV. I wish you and Baby Dog well.
