A Sad Sunday


Today couldn't have been any more sad. Riley, my dog, died this afternoon after getting hit by a car. He was exactly nine months today. For anyone who has pets out there, you know the bond and love there is for a pet. Actually, they become family; like kids.

Your pet becomes like a best friend... and it's hard when they're gone. My thoughts are with you.. :o(

I'm sorry for your loss. He looks like he was a good dog.

Damaris, so sorry to hear about your loss. My Collie got hit by a car when I was younger. I know how much it hurts to lose a pet like that.

Hi there, you have a really useful blog. Can you believe it? When blog surfing for detailed info on dog school training vista I ended up on your page. Obviously your site is not exactly what I was searching for, but your site caught my interest...now to move on and continue my search for dog school training vista. Thanks for the post.

Sorry about your dog. Sometimes bad things happen for no reason. I suggest you get a new friend and start the relationship going when you are ready.
Best.

Hello Damaris, sorry about Riley, just stay strong and remain focus on your goals. I miss you very much and congrats on grad school.

So sorry about your sweet baby. I'd be the same way if it were one of my kitties. I'll be thinking about you.

Damaris...

I am so sorry to hear about Riley...and I'm especially touched since he was a Westie. 9 months is long enough for you to have developed a very strong bond. My Westie, Mac, died in 2001 but was over 16 when he died. I still haven't been able to start over again -- but perhaps some day I will. I understand your loss, but I'll bet it's even worse since Riley didn't even get to live into full adulthood.

When you feel like it, perhaps you'll like to see Mac's website which has been left in place online. It helps keep him alive in my heart. You can find it at:

I hope your readers can help give you some comfort. I know how dreadful you must feel right now, and I'm so very sorry.

Hi Damaris,

I have been reading your blog for quite a while cause i really find your life exciting. (mine is kind of boring) but when i read about your doggie, as a dog lover and owner myself i felt like it was my duty to send you a message to let you know that i lost 2 dogs because of car accidents and i'm terrified to lose my little english cocker that way. My prayers are for you to recover asap and for your little baby to find the Rainbow Road (dog heaven) not so lonley without you.

We too out our 6 year old dachshund down for complications from licking lava rocks (Long Story),on June 20th 2005. So we definitely can relate to your pain. It does eventually get better, but mourn on your own time, not anyone elses. Wink wink!
