Putting simming in perspective

Recommended Posts

I've seen the posts and memorials, and feel I've actually lost friends here that I've met through simming. This morning we lost our pet of 11 years. Shug was a good dog and I miss her.Remember guys, that this hobby is great, you meet great people and I enjoy everything about it. But, it's just a hobby, and even though some may say she was just a dog, she was my wife and I's child. For me, I offer heartfelt condolences to all who suffer loss. I feel small and petty typing this, but I needed to say something.Thank you,Lobaeux

Lobaeux,I too know how you feel, you just get used to it with time. In sepetember I had to put my dog, golden retriever, to sleep. I had her also 11 years. You are not small and petty, loosing a long time friend hurts like hell. On the bright side I will be getting a new one this spring :)Matt

LobaeuxA lot of folks don't understand how important and how much a part of a family a pet can be. Anyone who's spent much time with animals know that they have as much capacity (if not more in some cases) to love and show affection as our human brethren. Our pets are the true embodiment of unconditional love. My condolences on behalf of your "AWVA family".Mike C.KPHX

Losing a pet is the same as losing a member of your family. Having lost two in the last year I offer our sorrow too. My wife did a webpage in tribute to one of our pugs we lost a year ago-it has been visited quite a bit and helped her with her grief. You may wish to do so or put a memorial on one of the websites out there-a fitting tribute to an important member of your family.http://members.telocity.com/~geof43/Geofdog2.jpg

Thank you all for your kind words, it was a hard day of consoling the family. I guess you just never know how much pets mean to you until they are gone.Lobaeux

My sincerest condolences. I know exactly the pain you are feeling. Having had a great day with our dogs today (one of them had his 8th birthday) I know how much a part of the family they become. My wife and I lost one of our dogs only four days after our wedding this past year, and it took a lot for us to pull it together and continue with our lives. However, our other dog was so morose without his companion that we eventually found another youngster to join the family. Now she's the light of his life, and has really brought a lot of joy into our family after only a few months. Take heart... the pain doesn't go away but it subsides, to be replaced with all the great memories. Cherish all the people and animals you are fortunate enough to know in this life. They're all worth it.
