Atticus, I am so sorry about your dog. I lost a dog I had for over 16 yrs in 2015 and I am still not over it. I got another one, but it isn't the same. Our pets are also our family.

I know this birthday is not a happy one and I am so sorry.
Hope the size of a mustard seed can produce Faith that can move mountains.

Oh Atticus, that sucks - I am so sorry. My dog, Juliet, is literally my lifeline. I'd be lost without her. I love dogs and help with rescues. I'm also a dog sitter and walker. I hope you heal quickly, my friend. JM is right - they stay in our hearts forever and we never get "completely" over it.  :Main17:
I survived the 80's, drug rehab, twins, and divorce. None of those things were as stressful as the disability process.

Thank you Tracey. My dog Lulu was an ex "bait" dog. It took many months of patience, love and caring to bring her out of her shell due to the traumas she suffered. But eventually, she came out of her shell, and she turned in to a normal dog that loved sleeping in our bed, and playing with her toys. She actually lived a long life, because she was already four or five when we adopted her, and we had her for almost 11 years! She was an American bulldog (different than an American Pit Bull Terrier). Unfortunately, the house seems really quite, and I can't seem to sleep with out her. Basically, she was like my therapy dog.

My remaining dog is old and full of grey hair now. He seems to be unsettled, and looks around for Lulu. I kind of suspect he figured out that she is not coming back. I do feel good because she passed away very peacefully. The doc gave her a sedative to relax her, then very slowly gave her the lethal injection. They allowed me in the room so i could be there with Lulu and gently stroke her fur so she wouldn't be scared. Right before she passed, she reached up and licked my nose! I guess she was feeling pretty good! :smile"

So sorry.  I know how it is with the older dog since I have one with health problems now.  In fact he can't make it up the stairs so I sleep down on the couch otherwise he starts pacing without me.   You have to think of all the love and joy we got from them for many years.  I would not trade that time in for anything.  They become so much of our lives.  Happy Birthday anyway!

I lost my Little Miss Mollie in 2015 on Good Friday.  I had her since she was 4 months. She was fine one day she stoped eating.  Then we got her to eat baby food.  She was so pitaful then she stated making theses terrible noises.  It turned out she had kidney failure. I didn't want to put her to sleep and it was the hardest thing I ever had to do.  It was a really hard time because I was waiting to her back on my recon and my marriage was falling apart. It was so lonely, but my parents adopted a shelter dog who had been abused and we bond and we have been great therapy for each other.
No matter what happens in life try to smile and beleive every thing will be ok!!!  Then smile vs cry!!!!   😅😅😅😅😂

Thanks for the comments everyone, I appreciate it. I still haven't been able to sleep or relax since my dog passed away. I just lay there, and no matter how hard i try, i cannot relax! Damn! My remaining dog Ace is very unsettled, and keeps looking around for his companion. He can't seem to sit still either.

Well, I guess eventually, i should be able to sleep from exhaustion I guess. I did go out for my belated birthday today with my family, so at least i got my mind off of it for a while.
