    Last week, our Meow Meow passed. We picked up her ashes Friday and brought her home.

    It's been much MUCH harder than DH and I ever thought it could be.

    Aw Katie - I am so sorry for your loss.
    It is terribly hard to say goodbye to a pet that has been loved and a part of your lives for years. Don't let anyone rush you through or try to minimize your grief.

    Meow Meow will be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge.
    Huge hugs grouphug.gif

    Katie I'm so sorry for the loss of Meow Meow. It is terribly hard to lose a beloved furbaby. We thought about that long and hard when we adopted a ten year old , but the joy we receive in the time we have them far outweighs the sorrow we feel when they go. I hope soon when you think of Meow Meow, it will be with happy memories and not sadness. Most of us here know what you are going through right now and feel your pain. Hugs - Connie

    Oh Katie.... grouphug.gif She was such a beautiful girl. It's always so hard to lose our furbabies, but she will always be in your heart and she will be waiting for you at the Bridge. May you be comforted by your happy memories of her. grouphug.gif

    Hi everyone, I haven't been around very much except in Word Games but I have missed you folks.

    A few weeks ago we had to put down our wonderful dog, Noxxy. The arithritis in her hips got so bad that she could barely walk and was losing control of her body functions. icon_cry.gif

    That is our cat, Tut, who adored Noxxy and he is still grieving too (Noxxy was his dog as far as he was concerned!).

    My husband says he never wants another dog because it is getting too hard when they pass on. I understand his position but do not necessarily agree as when I retire I would love to have another dog (but preferably one a bit smaller). Any advice on helping my hubby heal so that another dog can be in our future?

    I'm so sorry for the loss of your Noxxy. Losing a furbaby is so terribly hard. I'm sure your cat is missing Noxxy too. I hope your husband will relent and let you get another dog. You could tell him you are saving the life of a shelter dog if you adopt. I know it hurts when you lose a furbaby, but the pleasure they bring to you is so worth it. Not to mention the pleasure they get from their family. Hugs.

    Kat's Mom, I'm so sorry for your loss. icon_sad.gif

    It's so hard to lose our pets - our companions - isn't it? I've often heard people express the same thoughts about not wanting another dog because it's too hard to lose them - what I've seen, though, is that, after a period of time without, they realize how much they miss having a dog around.

    My grandparents, for instance, decided after they lost their dachshund Heidi that they weren't going to get another because they were afraid they'd outlive it, but, after so many years of having a dog in the house (my entire life) (I'm pretty sure there was more than one "Heidi"), they missed her so much they adopted an older retired breeding dog.

    We have a neighbor, too, who had had to put down his old lab - and he said the same thing - he wasn't going to go through that again. Yet, in time, he missed having the dog around and brought home a puppy.

    I think maybe, like any loss, maybe your husband might need more time to grieve?

    Oh KM... I'm SO sorry to hear this! It IS so difficult to deal with and at the time, you feel as though you never want to deal with the same situation again. I agree with the others who say to give your hubby some more time to grieve and then maybe you could show him pics of some dogs who are in need of rescue or go to a may be easier for him eventually to agree to save a life than say he's wanting another pet. As for your beautiful kitty, she will grieve too, I've seen it in dogs and cats before. Maybe convincing him to save a life and make kitty happy again with company would help too. But give him a little more time, everyone grieves in their own time. grouphug.gif

    I am so sorry for your loss Kat's. It hurts like nothing else imo.
    Sending huge hugs. grouphug.gif

    We have been through this twice in the past couple of years and DH was doing the talk about no more dogs. Six months later we got Dawson. icon_smile.gif
