I Miss My Dog

I miss my dog.  He was found in a trash can when he was only a few months old and was so grateful that he was rescued.  He was with me for 10 years.  He lost his life to cancer on 3/8/09.  He died on my living room floor.  I can't stop crying for him.  How do you get over the pain of a lost friend?  He was always happy.  Even though he suffered from addison's disease, diabetes, pancreatitis and then painful cancer.  He smiled and wagged his tail up the the last beat of his heart.  No other dog can replace him.  I know that he is in a less painful place, but my heart is broken.  I cry every night and morning.  I miss hearing him run through the house.

Take your time to feel sad, it is natural, let time heal you

How do you get over the loss of a friend? <br />
It takes a LOT of time... a whoooole lot of time. He was with you for a while decade--that's a big chunk of time! <br />
...The way I see it, the only way to get over losing someone is to just look at the good times, and forget the death, don't let their 'death' be the ending. Because it's not.<br />
<br />
I once heard, that if you remember someone and keep them in your heart then they're never farther away than the beating of that heart. <br />

I lost my lovely dog recently too, so I know it's difficult.. I'm having trouble as well (shown by my too-long story about her!) so I wish you good luck!
