Default Its been over a year and I am still sad...

I still miss Kat on a near daily basis.

We finally got her ashes home. I knew I couldn't drive after I picked them up so needed someone else to grab them, or someone else to drive me. My vets have said she could 'stay' as long as I needed.

The other day Arson needed to go for a vet visit (nothing big just a check) and so we brought her home. I cried. I opened the package and not only were her ashes returned in a very tasteful box but there was a soft bag with a clay imprint of her foot. I bawled. I showed Maf and she cried too.

Its been over a year and I am still devestated. She was such an amazingly awesome little dog. I have lost pets before but none that have effected me like this.

It makes me fear how I will cope when Dekka's time comes..

I'm so sorry.

I have lost many good, good dogs over the years. But I know when Mia goes, it will not be comparable. I will be a mess. Kat always reminded me so much of Mia. I wish there was something I could say to ease up that hurt just a little.

I can't believe it's been a year already -- seems like just yesterday I saw your thread and my heart fell.

I'm glad she lives on in your daily memories, but hope the grief eases with time.

I'm so sorry. I just don't know what else to say. Losing Sheena threw me for a serious loop and I'm still dealing with it over a year later.

It might be corny, but this is how I look at it--Yes, losing her was incredibly painful. But how incredibly lucky was I to have had my life touched by a creature so amazing and special that her passing left such a hole inside me? There are many people that don't get that gift, but I did. And you did to with Kat....

Thanks everyone. Sharing the loss on chaz back then was very thereputic and I appreciate all of you now and then.

Renee, I am not really in a position to keep a puppy from this litter. Though of course if Kat, or another like her was in the litter it would be difficult not to keep her.

Its not corny. That is also very much how I feel. As much as it hurts I am so glad I did get to have her. To me she was the epitome of what a JRT should be. Brazen, brave, outgoing to the extreme, friendly, and the most prey driven dog I have ever met without losing her brain around prey. Or not losing it too much.

Kat's been on my mind so much lately.

Maybe she's on her way back . . .

I'm sorry

It hurts so much sometimes.
I still can't look at pictures, can't even think about my Holly, the beautiful Afghan girl I lost several years ago. Her clay paw print is still tucked away in a velvet bag. I have never once been able to look at it.

Loving them can be so very painful at times. But of course they are so very worth it.

I lost my JRT (Tika) about 4 years ago, my absolute heart dog. I still think about her
I definitely feel your pain...
