Its been a year and I still hurt. Please someone give me words of wisdom.
Naiya was my angel my everything she passed at such a young age, I miss her so. i will post a pic of her as well.

four years of puppy paws moved outside today.
Inside my heart is breaking,
the Light of my Life - Naiya, has gone away.

I held her head, kissed her blurry eyes, and said "I Love You, Girl"
With gentle hands and heavy heart, I released her soul to God,
crying for her spirit to be free.
Never dreamed it would hurt so much,
Guess I wasn't thinking much of Me.

But she must be missing something,
she left her paws upon my heart.
Kind reminders of the time we had together,
I never wanted her to be the first to part.

They tug as fiercely as the shoestrings she once played with;
the tug of wars together, the one's I let her win.
The "tennies", the toys, all the things she loved speak about her passing
and I fall apart again.

Those little puppy "grunts" and kisses seem so far away.
I cry: "What was I thinking?
I said it'd be OK."

I said; "I'll be alright without you, If you really have to go.
No need for you to fret or worry,
we had our chance to love each other so."

Our final road together remains yet to be seen.
Puppy paws can be so gentle,
the pain they leave in passing, so mean.

"I'll hold them safely in my heart", I tell Her;
"but I'll let them run at will.
When we cross the Bridge together,
I know they will be still."

This poem helped me a little but nothing takes the sting away from here not being here. I hope this poem helps someone.

I sit and try to write the words, I want your heart to hear.
Hoping to find some comfort, in the fact that your not here.
I look out into the open field, that you once occupied,
Knowing now that field is empty, because my love, you've died.
I do believe with all my heart, that your soul has gone to be,
With all the other angel dogs, that you were meant to see.
We will have to stay behind, until God calls us too,
So do not be afraid, that he's only called for you.
The water is still, in the pond that you played,
And your bed is so empty, where your pretty head laid.
Our bed is to empty, where you once laid between,
the two people who LOVED you and now only dream,
That one day our eyes will shut one last time,
and you will come greet us, angel of mine.
Until then, I'll keep trying to see through my tears,
with memories you left us, to reflect through the years.
We'll never forget one minute we spent,
of loving and laughing, of places we went.
And I dread the day that your scent disappears,
for it's "proof" to me, Naiya, that you were just here!
But one day will come, when we'll start to see through,
the pain of the moment, and remember just "you".
Now you go and play, and look down when you can,
remembering we love you, and this isn't the end.

You're giving me a special gift,
So sorrowfully endowed,
And through these last few cherished days,
Your courage makes me proud.

But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
Will only be in vain.

So looking deep into your eyes,
Beyond, into your soul,
I see in you the magic, that will
Once more make me whole.

The strength that you possess,
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done,
For it's the only way.

That strength is why I've followed you,
And chose you as my friend,
And why I've loved you all these years...
My partner 'til the end.

Please, understand just what this gift,
You're giving, means to me,
It gives me back the strength I've lost,
And all my dignity.

You take a stand on my behalf,
For that is what friends do.
And know that what you do is right,
For I believe it too.

So one last time, I breathe your scent,
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that's within you,
To now grant me this appeal.

Cut the leash that holds me here,
Dear friend, and let me run,
Once more a strong and steady dog,
My pain and struggle done.

And don't despair my passing,
For I won't be far away,
Forever here, within your heart,
And memory I'll stay.

I'll be there watching over you,
Your ever faithful friend,
And in your memories I'll run,
...a young dog once again.

It's been 5 years since my baby girl Cleo went to the bridge and it does get easier but I often get these tinges of pain missing her so much. Since then we lost her fur sister and for some reason I feel so at peace with her passing. I just knew it was her time. I miss her terribly but the pain is not so fierce. I think when we lose them unexpectedly or traumatically it just pains us so much more. The shock never quite wears off.

No words of wisdom, I lost my Petey 6 months ago, he was 4 years and 9 months old. When they leave us at a young age, it's harder because we will always think about them wondering what life would be like if they were still with us. I expect that for me I will feel like this until what would have been the natural length of life for my boy, I would have been so happy to have him live to be 9. One thing that has helped me tremendously is having my boy Monty. Petey raised him until he was 17 months old. I pour all my free time into him. He has helped heal my heart.

I am so sorry. I also have lost my heart dog on Dec 16 2011.
I have heard it will not be easier but, just to remember after almost 11 years she is in a better place. As well as we gave them the best life possible while they were in our homes. We were blessed with there presence and they will never be forgotten. My girl would not want to see me crying, I know this because evertime during those years I did, she would look at me with those big brown eyes and just start licking away :]

It is very hard but, from everyones support and kind words i know she is waiting for me and she will till i get there.
