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....

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...
I'm sorry. You are not a mommy because you own a dog

I have no words of wisdom--only wishes that your pain will ease, and that Kat will some how make her way back to you.

I am so sorry I feel so blessed and lucky to have met Kat. She was a wonderful dog. I'm not sure if the hurt ever goes away but I do hope that it becomes easier for you and that you're able to find comfort in Dekka and Seren.
