We got to pick up our dog's ashes today :(...

I have this lovely container, a certificate & a sad poem from the pet cremation place. Having all that & knowing we still have to bury her, just feels like it did last week the day she had to be put to sleep. Plus I've had to watch my other dog look at me with such sad eyes & look for her missing friend. It's just pitiful. (she's still eating, so that's a plus)

I know overcoming a loss takes time, but I just wish I could fast-forward this part. Sorry to be a bummer- with it being Sat. & all. Guess I need a cyber hug- b/c if I ask hubby for a real one, I'm liable to cry in front of my dau & her cousin who's spending the nite. Can't have that.

  • OMG I had my DH pick up our dogs ashes because I couldn't bear to do it!
    I buried Kita right outside our back patio and put a solar light there, so she'd never be in the dark, lol
    That was over 7 years ago and I STILL miss him!

    I'm sorry!!!!!!!!!!! HUGS!!!

  • I had to put down my first guide dog, a golden retriever named Tova, several years ago. I didn't save her ashes, but I kept her collar and never used it for another dog. I went out and got very drunk that night, it hurt so much to lose her. I didn't have a little one at the time to keep me on the traight and narrow. Now Ballad is failing in her health, and the thought of losing her is unbearable.

  • Hugs. I'm so sorry. I'm getting choked up thinking about the furry family members I've lost and what you're going through right now.
