Not Sure What to Title This

I don’t know where to start or what to say. I hoped I wouldn’t be writing a post such as this for a very long time.

My heart is broken.
I can’t stop crying.
My eyes are puffy and red and my head feels like it’s in some type of medieval crushing vice.

Last night we had to put Parker (our dog) to sleep.

I hope it gets easer but now all I can think about is the loss.

The loss of my best friend
The loss of my shadow
The loss of my furry co-worker 
The loss of my court jester
The loss of my constant companion
The loss of my teddy bear

Parker was more than a dog to us. He was a part of our lives for 10 years. He was part of our family and loved by all who knew him.

I know the pain will lighten and I will soon be able to remember all the enduring qualities Parker had with joy but for now I’m ridden with sorrow and devastated over the loss.

  7. So sorry about you loss. We have a Pomeranian named Chloe and she is 13. She is a part of our family and I am not looking forward to the day when she is gone. Your little Parker was a lucky little dog to be able to live out his life with two people that treated him so well. My thoughts and prayer are with you.

  8. Kendra, so sorry for your loss! I had to have my cat that I've had since '95 put to sleep a lil over a week ago. When I pass by "her" room I still look for her lying on her fluffy bed. I haven't had the strength to remove her stuff yet. My only savior has been my other furrball...Chuey (pom/14yrs). Once he's gone TX may have a massive flood from all the tears. Hang in there!

    Big Hugs sent your way!

  9. I'm so sorry :(. My dog (& bff) passed away four years ago... I had her from the ages of 10 to 24. It was heartbreaking and I didn't get out of bed for 2 days. I hope that your pain eases soon.

  16. Oh my gosh! I was so afraid when I saw this post in my reader that this is what it would be about. I teared up reading it. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your sweetheart. It is beyond hard to lose a pet, especially one that is just as much human as it is dog. Praying for you! Much love and support sent your way. Hugs!

  23. Oh girl, I'm so, so sorry! We had to put my Daisy Mae down about a month ago. It's heartbreaking and I'm so sorry you have to go through this. They become so much more than a pet, and it makes it so unbearably hard when we lose them. Thinking of you!
