    This is a very good idea, just keep something especial and the rest donate, I think it may help you to know that her things are helping other dogs.

    We live in an ageist society where everything is based on youth, but I hated being 18. I don't like teenagers any more now than I did then. I'm 49 now and there is no way that I'd go back to my teens and 20s - even if I knew what I know now, I don't want to go through all that again. I found it a very difficult time. - Buzz Osborne of the Melvins

    I'm terribly sorry about you dog, Cupid. It sounds like she meant a lot to you, and I'm sure you gave her a great life.

    She was the best dog. I got so many compliments on her from strangers. She never barked, never went potty in the house, never destroyed anything, just the perfect dog.

    We went through so much together this summer. We had to move from a house she grew up in, with a huge yard with a wooded area where she spent most of her days exploring and running, to a small, cramped apartment where she had to be on a leash outside at all times. She began to like walking through new neighborhoods after a while. At first, she seemed frantically looking for her old house, pulling me on the leash from house to house that looked like hers, it broke my heart. We lived there for 3 months as I continued to search for a suitable house for us. It was just her and me at that point.

    Well, I found the house but it had a small, fenced-in yard. She liked the freedom of the yard, but seemed disappointed with the fence. I remember her running up to it and looking back at me as if to say, "what is this?" I said, "it's the best I could do!".

    So here we were in our new home with a yard for 6 weeks, and now she's gone. Never thought this would happen.

    Thanks for all your condolences and kind words. They are so appreciated. (sorry for the rambling)

    ((((((Cupid)))))) It really does sound like she was your best bud.

    I've had to say goodbye to too many beloved pets, including one who was my very best pal ever. I still have the sweater that I wore the day I had to put him down because I'm sure there at least one of his hairs on it. I haven't worn it since but I can't get rid of it either.

    I will tell you, though, that as devastated as you feel right now, with some time your heart will heal and instead of the pain that you now feel when you think of your dog you'll instead feel the same warmth and love that you felt when she was with you. I hope you get to that place quickly.

    {{{hugs}}} we lost our dog Chelsea last August, also after moving to a new house , also very suddenly while undergoing a dental cleaning at the vet. It hurt so much, I know how you feel. Time heals, you will start laughing at the funny things your dog did, you will talk about her with a smile.

    Hug your pet for me today. Don't take them for granted. Mine went so fast.

    I'm so sorry, Cupid. It may sound kind of morbid, but I think about my dog dying sometimes, play it out in my mind. I think I do it to help prepare me for when she actually does die. Even though I've had many pets and I've survived all their deaths, my current baby is so special to me that I don't know what I'm going to do when she dies.

    Shortly after my cat died, I found a claw that he had shed in the carpet. I saved it in my dresser for a few years.

    I've had a dog die overnight unexpectedly right after turning 11, and I've had a dog miraculously make it to 15 after being in poor health for years until it was just all too much and she had to be put down. Both ways are horribly painful and I've never totally gotten over any of them. I'm so sorry for your loss, and I know that nothing but time is going to help. Now I gotta go cuddle my furbabies.

    ((((Cupid)))) I'm so sorry. I've had a wonderful dog die suddenly and unexpectedly, and it was devastating. It's so strange (and sad, of course) to not have your sweet pup there. Agree with the others that she was lucky to have such a great human!! Best to you.

    Cupid, I am so sorry that you lost your precious dog. I hope in time, your pain will be replaced with smiles, when you recall all the happy memories you shared with your dog.

    This just about tore me up. I started crying reading this....I still find Bandit's hair on clothing or things from last winter I haven't used. It's like parts of him are still here with me. I didn't know anyone else felt like this.

    We lost our dog unexpectedly three years ago. I still cry when we get her Christmas stocking out. But I can't throw it away.

    Cupid, remember the good times and the times your friend was a stinker. You had a lot of years together, so there are lots of memories. I think I was crying daily for about a month, and then it slowly got less and less. There's nothing like crying while laughing about something she did......One time Layla was laying on the floor, farted and took off. It was like she knew it was gonna be a bad one.

    (((Cupid))) I'm so sorry. I lost one of my furry babies in July, and it still hurts. Cry it out, save what you need to save or donate it--whatever brings you comfort. Do what you need to do to feel better and remember how much your baby loved you.
