How can 48 hours feel like years! Hearts Broken Wide Open (RIP Philly- November 1, 2017 6:10pm)

Post by Phillip The Great on Thu Nov 02 2017, 23:22

Our 9 year old staffordshire bull terrier Philly just moved onto greener pastures. Our hearts lost and we're having to relearn how to move through the day without our friend and old soul family member <3 Just sickening this whole experience and well we could use the support if anyone is up to chat about their beloved over time. <3

I'm so very sorry to read of your loss Amy, our fur friends invade our hearts and leave them broken when they move on. Philly is at rainbow bridge resting and awaiting the day you are all together again Sad

Thanks Liz....its a comfort knowing theres other SBT lovers out here that are aware of the bond with these special beings, he was truly regal as you say and had such a challenging first 4 years and yet a grand soul and pure love and light, a great reminder for us humans to stay humble no matter what life throws at us <3

Thanks Emma.....and yes its so surreal, every moment it seems I have a memory from our days....the house is empty yet we still talk to him so this is helpful. A very sad transition. No the less a very special gift to have had time with him. Love to Misty from us x

Many people don't understand how deeply we get involved in our pups' lives. It's the same as losing a family member & you need to grieve. Eventually you'll be able to look back with smiles instead of tears, but until then we're here to support you if you need it. We do understand. Love Struck

Welcome to the forum, by the way.
