That was a beautiful tribute Joyce.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Suzanne. :(

RIP Sophie...

I'm okay. I've been staying at my parents for the past few nights. Every time I go to my own home I just feel like bawling. When my cat passed away last year I bawled my eyes out at home, but back then I lived in my own apartment. Now I live with two people and its hard to show that kind of emotion around them and have to be around them.

Sofie came home today, and her urn arrived. I cried when getting the ashes but when I got home tonight felt quite a bit better and felt alright putting them in the urn. I feel better that she is back home. I may try to stay at my own house tomorrow... it just sucks because she's not there and it doesn't feel complete.

Here is a picture of the urn my dad & I got, sorry the picture is out of focus, I took it with my phone:

I thought so too :heartbeat:

The original plan was to put it out on the deck or out in my mom's flower garden somewhere, Sofie loved to bask in the sun. It's a very well made stone, it weighs about 18lbs, it was made to be outside. However... right now I think I'll bring her home with me. I know it's just her body, I know it's just ashes... but I don't want to throw her out in the cold right now - I'm just not ready. :|

Sophie's urn is beautiful!

I understand about not wanting to put her ashes in the cold right now. That is because you are still grieving and the reality is too difficult to wrap your logical brain around.

I buried my cat, Candy, in my backyard, and years later, I often still get a quick thought of "I hope she isn't cold out there tonight."

Very beautiful, Suzanne. Hope your days are starting to be a bit less painful. I'm sure it will take a long while for 'normal' to return.

Definitely. I talked to my mom about it and she said maybe we could put her out in the Spring when the weather is nicer.

Thanks, I'm doing a lot better. Trying to remember the good times and all of the memories we had together. :hug3:

I just wanted to share what Joyce sent me. Just when I thought the tears were done flowing, I came home to a package:

This was so entirely thoughtful and absolutely perfect. It totally made my day.

:hug3: I just loved that photo of the two of you. It also made me realize I don't have many of me with my dogs. I need to start adding them to my collection of photos.
