More thanks  
Just more thanks for all the condolences, they really mean a lot since I'm alone here today and all I've been doing is checking for more messages from you guys. I think the nicest thing that people have said that's helped the most is that Beasties is with all the other angel bostys from this community, I like thinking of it that way, that we're all one big family and we all have children waiting for us. Beasties was friends with all of your kids and I'm glad she's not alone like I am. I think a lot of Lulu-Belle at this time and I look at Clementine and how hog and all them have moved forward and I know one day there will be another girl boston in my house to carry on what Beasties started in my heart. For now, all I can do is grieve that the house is so quiet without the snoring and the ticking feet following me everwhere. No face bashes the bathroom door when I shut it and the bathtub has little Beasties footprints in it from a muddy day that I can't bring myself to wash off now. 13 years, that's over half my life. I didn't take care of her, she took care of me.

Losing a pet is so hard, because they *are* our babies. I hope that you are feeling better soon.

I'm so sorry to hear about Beasties. The first Boston in my life, Petunia, belonged to my mom, and she died an untimely death in 2005. It really was like losing a family member. My mom was utterly heartbroken. But in time her heart healed and she made room in it for two new Bostons, and they're the light of her life.

The awful thing about grieving is that you can't avoid it or rush through it, but the good thing is that you will eventually feel better. One day you'll be able to give all that love to a new Boston, and Beasties will be happy to see that someone else is getting a turn with you.

13 years is definitely a lifetime of sorts; all those wonderful memories of her that are so painful now will be comforting in the future. I still miss our Boston Patsy that we put to sleep almost 20 years ago; she was such a smart cookie and had habits I know you can't teach pups. "Patsy, go in your box!" we'd say when it was bedtime and she would obediently go open the bathroom door with her paws and lay down in her bed. Still makes me smile to think of how she would race from one end of our property to the other -- I'd walk her to one end, tell her to stay, and like the good girl she was, she'd stay while I walked to the other end. And she waited til I would holler "PATSY!!! C'MERE GIRL!!!" and like a bat out of hell she'd run like the wind.

Can you take a photo of the muddy pawprints in the tub just so you have them? I know exactly what you mean about wanting to leave them there.

*hugs* to you and hope you're able to smile through your tears... she's not in pain anymore and she's running alongside Lulu and others that we've lost to that great dog park in the sky.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my Boston Tyler to congestive heart failure two years ago on July 3rd. It is such a terrible disease and so hard for our babies to fight. Your Beastie was a beautiful girl. I know she is playing with all the other Bostons at the Bridge now. I hope you find comfort in knowing how many of us share your pain. Big hugs to you.

Losing my Bubby was the hardest thing I ever went through... but knowing that he is up there with so many of our Buddies keeps me going. I'm sure him and Lulu and Lunchbox and Cornie and Pugsley and Grimmy and Petunia and Patsy and Tyler ALL our babies up there are having a great time in Heaven. :)

it will get better I promise..it takes quite a while though
Just remember that Beasties is just fine now...she would want you to be happy and when you are ready a new puppy will be wonderful
