My Sweet Girl Zoe

by Essy W.
(Lynnwood, WA)

You left us on April 24, 2015. You were already having a hard time with accidents around the house and on your bed, I know you felt bad about doing that, I felt worse not knowing how to help you.... then you developed diabetes.... and starting to lose weight, rapidly.

When I took you to the doctor on your final day, believe me, it was the hardest thing I ever had to do. I am sorry! I still wonder if I gave up on you too soon, and it kills me not having you around... you were there for me through so many bad times, and many good times, I hope I gave you all the respect, love and attention you deserved, you were such a timid, shy little girl and everyone that got the pleasure to meet you, loved you...

On your last day on this earth, it rained as we were taking you on your last walk, then we got to see two rainbows, it felt as a way of God telling us it will be okay, and you were going to be taken care of, until we meet again.

Zoe, I will always miss you and will never forget you. Thank you for teaching me to be more accepting of things, to live in the moment and to forgive.

Thank you T
by: Essy

Hi T,

You are so sweet, thank you for your words.

I guess I am doing okay, I feel pretty numb must of the time, I can't believe it has been over a month and I still expect her to greet me when I close the gate, she was so excited to see me... I really miss her happy face, her little tail moving all over and her craziness, it was a five minute show :) I sometimes take a few minutes sitting on the bench outside, no real hurry to walk-in, I know the house is empty and the silence she left behind is greater than I can explain.

Life goes on, but we carry an emptiness in our heart.

Thank you and have a blessed weekend.

I'be been thinking of you and hope you're doing ok. Know how hard it is as the days go on. I have had some better days and some not. Know it will take time. Just wanted you to know that I was thinking of you and remembering Zoe as well. Take care.

Thank You Judy!
by: Essy

I want you to know how great it was to read your message....

Yesterday was Zoe's birthday, it also marked three weeks since she left us, it was a very emotional day. Nothing can make the pain go away or bring her back, but your kind words helped, without knowing how broken I was feeling and needy of comfort.

Thank you Judy, from the bottom of my heart.

My Heart Breaks For You and Zoe
by: Judy

I'm sitting here right now typing this and wiping away tears flowing down my cheeks.

I also am sure that you did everything you could possibly do for Zoe and only you knew if it was the right time to let her go. Please don't blame yourself for this. Unfortunately, we can't have our furry friends with us forever, but sure do wish we could. What a better world they make for us every day.

My heart still hurts for you because I can't even imagine what you went through. It's a thought I can't even go to, as I have a sweet little mini Schnauzer named Rex. He is absolutely the love of my life! God bless you and hope you are well.

Hi T
by: Essy

Thank you. I do believe all of us really understand what losing a loving pet feels like, and it sucks!

I saw your posting for Joey, what a beautiful face! :) and I am sure he had a wonderful life with you.

May you also find the strength to overcome your pain.

Best wishes,

your sweet girl

I am so sorry for the loss of Zoe. It is sugh a difficult decision. Lost my boy Joey in March to cancer. Struggle daily in grief. Zoe knows she was loved. You made the most loving choice for her and I believe she knew that. It does help to know that there are others that understand completely what we are going through. I will think of you and wish to you healing and peace in the coming days.

Thank you Jackie

I really appreciate your comment, I am doing ok and with time I will do better. Hard to believe a little creature can mean so much in someone's life. She was a very special girl. Thank you.

So sorry for your loss
by: Jackie

It's the hardest thing in the world to do to choose the afterlife for our beautiful dogs. I'm sure that Zoe is somewhere wonderful now and that she's waiting for you. I'm so sorry for your loss. Words escape me. Your post made me cry. I hope you're okay.
