Sadness Continued

It's fairly unbelievable. I'm losing my dog. Now, I'm letting go of the man who has been in my life for a long time. It's far too personal to speak of here. Suffice it to say that he was his own undoing. I will be all right. I know I will.

Aww I wish I could hug you both. I know what it is like to lose your best friend. Please know you both are in my prayers.

WW, I'm catching up and have just read this post and the previous one. I am so very sorry to hear about your dog. I would be devastated and often think that I should go ahead and get a puppy in anticipation of the day that my wonderful old blind dog is gone from me. I can't imagine being completely dogless. Here's hoping that your companion exceeds the vet's expectations.

As for the man, I'm sorry for that too, and for the pain it causes you. It's funny that you mention that it's too personal to talk about here. Doesn't that suck? I came to the Internet, the blogsphere, so that I could talk about the things that were just too hard to talk about in real life, and, once here, realized that, even cloaked in anonymity, I couldn't really do it here either. *sigh* You seem wise and trusting of your own judgement, so I have to believe this is the right step. Kudos for taking it.

I've always said, when it rains, it pours.
Hang in there lady.

I read your previous post about your dog, and now this. That is so sad. It's like a day in your life is ending, and the darkenss is falling. But, I'm looking forward to your next sunrise, because I know it will come.

I'm awfully sorry to hear about your dog. We lost our cat a couple of months ago & I'm surprised how sad it still makes me feel. Good luck.

That "anonymous" was me. I guess I pressed the wrong button. Sorry again about the news...

WW, What don't kill ya can only make ya stronger. That is easy for me to say since I'm not walkin in yer shoes. It's always hard to lose those things that are close to your heart. Remeber my darlin' that after ya grieve ever how long it will be, there will come a day when ya can hold yer head up high and know you are just woman enough to survive in this life. May you find peace in the midst of your storm. Sorry to hear life has you down right now. Wish I could comfort ya and let ya know that it will be alright some how. Here's a big ol cornbread hug.***** Right now it's the best I can do......

Hi all of you! You brought tears to my eyes - but at least not sadness - with your words of support. I will be okay. There are worse things than this I'm sure. Isn't the saying, "It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all." Hugs to all of you....Thank you.

Awww, that is so sad, both the dog and the relationship, though if it was his own undoing, then he had control over whether it was going to happen. My heart aches for you though. Hugs, love and prayers.

I'm so sorry, both about your dog and the man. Ending a relationship is always a sad thing, and a personal one so it's understandable that you don't feel like sharing.
We'll keep you in our thoughts.

I'm so sorry. I know that Internet support is great, but I hope you have a real life support system to help you through also. Too much at once - so unfair.

When it rains it pours and then the sun does shine, until that time we are here to offer you love and support. If there is anything I can do please just reach out. This will pass and a much stronger person you will be in many ways....emotionally, spiritually, and you will also grow in other relationships that you never thought. It is during this time that changes begin to occur that will mold you into a new person one you will be proud of.

SO sorry to hear about both your dog and your man. You seem to have a good attitude, though. This too, shall pass.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Dear WW,
I am just catching up on blog friends' new posts and my heart goes out to you. I, too, have been surrounded by dark clouds recently and it's a fine line between 'sinking' and 'staying afloat'.

Pets have a wondrous way of leaving their imprints on our hearts forever. My dog, Liza, passed away early this year and what I wanted to avoid most (since I could not avoid the inevitable) was for her not to suffer as well.

Be strong my friend.

I wish I could wave a magic wand and make all the hurt go away. We had to put down 2 beloved cats last year within 6 months of each other and it nearly wrecked me completely. I feel your pain and truly wish I could put my arms around you and hug you. Just know that I am sending you bright white light from the coast of NC straight to your heart.

We lost a beloved cat to heart disease a few years ago. His sister lived to be almost 20, but no matter how old they live to, it's still sad when they get so critically ill.

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a chicken wings recipe site/blog. It pretty much covers recipe related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)

WW, I have no words to say. Men can be replaced...but a dog that has loved you and slept in your bed every night for years...

Well, it breaks my heart to think of it. I send warm wishes and positive thoughts your way.

I daresay in time you will probably miss your dog more than the S.O.
Good luck and chin up.
