The grieving process...

I know that most people think that a creature so small cant feel emotions and surely doesnt have a soul,  i just dont think this way.  My Baby, a min pin, who passed away yesterday, was only 5 years and in good health, she would do things to make me laugh, before i knew i was in a depressed mode, she would do what i call the 'doink doink' and run in the back yard like a bambi and then grab a mouth full of freshly mowed lawn and pull it out just to hear my hub bitch! It would bring tears of laughter to my eyes!  She would scare my other dog, when he jumped out of the bath tub, literally lie in waiting to scare him, and you could actually see the laughter on her face of a job well done, craziest thing ...i walked in to my bedroom and hubs and Baby were on the ground crouching, and he says to me "shhh' they were scarying 'Puck' our other dog. i never thought this was possible?  I think that animals have souls, and i can only hope that they were out of souls and needed a really precious one, as she was only with us for a short time, but it was a dang happy time.  A sweet soul!!!!!!! I will celebrate the happiness she brought into our lives!!!!!!!!!!!!
 We made her a tomb stone. She was a huge part of our lives, as she had the heart of a lion!!!  I LOVE you Babe, go forward and be Big!

Thank You so very much Helen, I never though this sweet puppy would leave me, ever! They become such a huge part of our lives, she was so sweet, i just know if i had been inside the house she'd be ok, i am beating myself up about it, its a process, i am sure, that i will be going through, and it hard to accept!!!!!!!! Thank You Helen for being here with me!

Aw. You are doing a good job remembering her and grieving. I would never have understood this before we got our dog, who does many things similar to Babe. Big hugs!

Animals do have souls Jackie and have a greater purpose in being a part of this world than we can understand. Little Baby is still watching over you an your family and she will be there to greet you when you go home!

Oh, I'm so sorry, Jackie. That's very sad news. I've always lived with dogs. I know that they have souls. Right now, your pup is rolling in something really stinky up in heaven, so that she'll be in fine form to greet you when you are reunited with her. She was a beautiful little doggie.

LOL, yes she loved old rotten worms left over from rainy days, she'd roll and roll in them, YUCKO!!!!!

Hi Jackie,

I tried to post the other day, but my computer failed. I'm sooo sorry for your loss. I believe our pets are like our guardian angels. Precious, sweet and innocent. They keep us in touch with what's really important. God Bless you!

My heart goes out to you in the loss of this so important member of your
family - and our animal 'children' are that. And yes, they do have souls.

A big hug to you my friend.

So very sorry Jackie. Animals do have souls and are part of our lives. I so dread the day when I will have to say goodbye to our dog because I remember how hard it was when I lost my cat.
