My soulmate, my life.

From puppy to old man, I loved him more than anything or anyone in the world. I would have died or killed for him, that is how much he meant to me.

At 12.5 years, I took him for his rabies shot. It supposedly wasn't the cause of him to collapse and flat line 2 minutes later. They said they did what they could but he was dead. I was alone. I was able to kiss his beautiful face one last time.

I had him cremated so I knew it was him. He is in my room with many pictures and trinkets. One month ago was the WORST day of my life and I cry for him all the time. Being an atheist, I don't believe in the spirit world. However, energy lives on and I see it in his dog friends. I expect him to be in my bed every morning; though he is not and never will be again.

Coping with this fact is the hardest. I can't see a magical "Dog Heaven" where he is playing with family dogs past. I miss him and can't control it! No support system. I dream of him often and have all happy memories. One day his box will be placed in my coffin. We will be together...always.

Tooo sad!
by: AnonymousMark

My heart goes out to you I too have just lost my little girl on July 28 2014. The worst day of my life and it was my birthday! But my baby had to go she couldn't fight the Cancer anymore, she was so strong but she is so missed, I feel as though a piece of me has gone. I am so lucky to have had her for 17 years.

Thinking of you.

What a kind, loving and wonderful person you are. I just wish all the mini schnauzers could have a mom like you. You have so much LOVE in your heart. Bless you for all that you did for your baby

They say that when an animal dies it is because there is another one that needs you more . I lost my mini Lizzy when she was almost 12 years. She was the love of my life and it tore me apart. Nothing will ever take her place but I don't think it's suppose to. I believe that we are on this earth to take care of others so I went out and got another Schnauzer and started working to help other animals. I miss Lizzy every day
So I do my best to honor her by reaching out to all the little Mini's that need help.

Your beautiful soulmate
by: Jackie

I know how hard it is to lose one of these amazing animals. I lost my beautiful Banjo four months ago. I have a 5 month old puppy, Cookie, who has helped get me through the pain. I still think about Banjo everyday and he'll never be replaced but Cookie has made me smile and remember what it is that I love so much about this beautiful breed of dog. My thoughts are with you. He was/is beautiful. They're way too good a dog to ever have to die. I'd take a bullet for my babies too and, yes, I would kill for them.

We still call Fritz Rocky now and then. Rocky was 14 when he left us. Also a diabetic with other issues. we also miss him terribly . Fritz is helping with the hurt. Keeps us busy . Best to you .
