I am so very sorry for your loss and the pain that I know you are experiencing right now. I wish that there were words of wisdom that I could say that would help ease you pain, but I know that there are none.
Just know this - you are not not, and never will be alone. Those who leave before us are always with us, they live in our hearts and in our memories, so they are never really gone. We just can no longer see them... You and yours will be in my heart, and in my prayers.

Thank you

I think as I just mentioned to someone who was kind enough to ask...I am totally in the "denial" phase right now ..the tears have faded and I just keep expecting her to come around the corner and cuddle with me ...

too much sadness I am on total overload and trying to embrace this denial as long as it will last actually

it may not be the healthiest way to live ..but is just easier right now to pretend nothing is wrong I think :(

I have to go to work and care for people

I just wanted to share the picture I took the last few hours of JuJu's life ..I thought this would make me feel sad ..but honestly I think it is just beautiful ...the grief is real ..and I will always miss her ..she was part of us! a huge part...and I feel beyond lucky to have had this dog grace our lives ...

this picture is sweet and beautiful to me ..we were not too sure about the puppies coming to us while she was sick ..but it gave her life and joy and took the edge off the pain of loosing her...

..honestly she had a great life ..right up to the end she was cuddled loved and well cared for ...with so many sad stories about dogs in the world ..I know we gave her a wonderful life and she in return did the same for us!

thanks to you all for the sincere support you sent me ..and all with out even knowing who I was..what a wonderful place to share JuJu's last bit of life

You are all amazing and have shown me so much ..I am so glad I found this board ..

thank you very very much it means the world to me that people who have never met me could be so kind and caring ...

I have to say one thing ..I am so glad Phoebe and Lister had time with JuJu ..she taught them the ropes...and it was amazing I had not wanted to get another dog until she passed away ...but then I had a panic ...with all of our loss this past year ..my husband works from home alone ...he was so close to JuJu she was his constant companion while I was at work....what would he do?? I was terrified that he would get depressed ...loosing Ian was horrific (our son) like a giant meteor hit our world ...JuJu absorbed our grief ...what would he do when she died?

JuJube was the first dog in our lives that was an "only" we always for some reason had at least 3 dogs when my kids were growing up ...we also took in kids and some of them came with dogs ...for the years we had JuJu it was after everyone had grown and left and she was our only one ...she was also not well behaved in public ..not aggressive but she would sob spit cry wail and blow coat over the stupidest stuff! at the vet it mortified us to have this dog over our laps just sobbing ...(do you know what I mean anyone else have a bully that does this?) she would blow her coat all over us ...God forbid you have to leave her to run in the post office or something she would push her face on the window look like a tortured beast and just cry hysterically...
just could never take her anywhere ..but we have a huge yard and she lived in a paradise we also took her for rides as long as we did not have to leave her she was ok ...she was kind of like a "special" child in that we kind of had to arrange our lives around her!
she was never ever aggressive just a very anxiety ridden dog...

anyway I took a chance ..we have always worked with the rescue groups here and one of my favorites worked with us ..we adopted Phoebe ...then they sent me an email asking if we knew people "just like you guys who would be able to foster this little guy" it was Lister picture included...(I actually had two groups turn me away because I had an older female who was ill did not even meet us just said "NO") ..

I told them I wanted him and no I would not foster he woulb be ours forever and "DO NOT SEND ME ANYMORE EMAILS!!!" they actually had him neutered and brought him over...

JuJube even in her sickened state took these puppies on ..she became the mama and as I said she showed them the ropes ...guided and loved them ...even kissing them good by when she died ...

I feel so happy we made a choice that did not go with the "norm" in life ..the puppies sparked her ..gave her new purpose ..and I believe gave her a few extra weeks happiness...

so many people have such stong opinions about what works and does not work in the dog (and people) world ..but I am a firm believer that each situation is its own!

my husband and I are able to get through our grief with moments of joy ..we still have fuzzy beasts to cry into when we need to ...and we are busy!

(this is a litany I am sorry I broke a finger last night and it hurt so much I took drugs this morning so pardon my ramble I do have a point)

2 beautiful dogs found forever homes because this group looked beyond their own set ideals ..and saw what we had to offer....knew we would be great not only for these dogs but as human beings one to another they were more than happy to help us not suffer as badly during such a horrific time ...while two other rescue groups did not even come to meet us or evaluate our situation ..just shut us down ...and lost out on badly needed adoptions because they had it set in their mind that you could not make this work ....

ok the point

everyone has a story in life ....and with dog adoptions ..it is so important to really look beyond the first email!!!

thanks always good to post on drugs you know :P
