TBD on Ning

My best friend.....The one thing in my life that puts a smile on my face every day is gone now. He was fine when I left for Ca. to visit and when I returned he only made it one more day. I wasn't told until I got off the plane, ready to come home to his ecstatic happiness at the door when he hears my voice calling to him..Hobo...Where's my boy....?.When I saw him he could barely move or wag his tail.....I truly don't know if I will ever be the same.

We buried Hobo in my back yard....a choice a person is allowed to make when a dog dies at the vets office, or you can have a company do the burial or cremation, and service. Since my dog was not a big people person, we decided to do the burial ourselves and will shop for many pretty flowers to plant on top of his spot, which used to be my vegetable garden...Now it will become a flower garden just for him, but I will have to wait till after the frost to plant......For now he has a potted plant and I really don't think I will ever get over this.....

Thanks again everyone...I am still careful when I walk out the door, Hobo doesn't try to follow. Not having him around is going to take some real getting used to....Thanks again for your nice comments....K

The loss of your dog is such a sad thing. His tail wagging, his funny little smile(they do seem to, don't they?), the way he would jump around until you paid special attention to him, all of these things and many more will be missed. My heart goes out to you. Time, give it time.

Just read about your loss, caseyjo. I'm sorry to hear about Hobo; I've lost a dog before and feel a lot of empathy. Peace to you in the memories of your beloved little guy.

Thank-you all so very much for your support for my feelings. I have been doing a lot of thinking about my dog and maybe this sounds funny, but I think my dog just wants me to be happy no matter what happens in this world, and I think he wants me to be a little kinder to others....not give up my spunk mind you, but just be a little bit more understanding, and not quite so judgmental....

I have never known such a unconditional love in my life like the love of my furry friend and I feel his love is blowing somewhere in the wind....maybe reaching out for me or anyone out there feeling sad or lonely...So when you least expect it and you feel a unexpected whip of warm breeze pass, well maybe it is Hobo's tail wagging......Love you all.....K

Caseyjo, I am very sorry for your loss. I travel around in an RV with my dog Happy. I would be verry verry sad if I lost him.

I am so very sorry for your heart and for the loss to it. May the joy that Hobo brought to you in this life continue into the next.
