Just a Dog…………

January 7, 2009

I can’t even tell you how helpful your words of comfort have been.  It is so wonderful that there are so many people who understand the love and loss of a dog.  The comments on the blog, the emails and phone calls were so heartfelt and helpful.  Thank you.  So many of the comments were from people I don’t know personally and I appreciated the fact that so many people all over the world understood the hurt and that it is more than “it’s just a dog”.

I know I did the right thing by my Woo.  There are still tears.

    Jinnie, the tag line on my email under Graycie’s name is “To the world, you might be just a dog. But to me, you meant the world.” Arrooos for Windy… sniff sniff

    I haven’t stopped thinking about you and Woo since I read your entry for that day. As I write this I have tears in my eyes.
    I refuse to see the movie “Marley and Me”. As much as I wanted to see it when I first saw it advertised, I knew that if Marley were to die at the end of the movie, I’d be in tears. My daughter went to see it and came home and told me “Mom, it’s a good thing you didn’t go see that movie”. If you’ve seen it, you know why. If you haven’t seen it, Jinnie, don’t. I won’t elaborate anymore than that, just trying to keep you from more pain.
    Still thinking of you and poor Woo.

      Thanks so much, it seems very different around the house without her.

      It is funny that we went to the movies on Sunday night and I just couldn’t go see Marley and Me.

    So sorry to hear about this–dogs are our best friends, our companions, our lives. May
    your heart heal soon.

    Dear Jinnie:

    I was just surfing through to look at the pups and saw this about your girl Woo. Peace to you spirit, for she surely has found hers.

    Good thoughts coming your way

    Wish I could just pop by and give you a big hug! When my beloved dog Aslan died in June, I felt raw for a very long time, but nothing else could have been possible. I loved him too much, he was my baby, he did everything for me. I still miss him, but today, the pain has given way to all the treasured memories that we created together. You will always love Woo and you will always have that special place for her in your heart, which nothing else can, or should, replace. Thinking of you,
