I miss my Teddy Bear

August 31st, my beloved dog, Teddy passed away due to complications of diabetes. He went blind and was in a lot of pain towards the end.  Logically I know I did the right thing, but I am taking it very hard that I had to let him go. My heart is breaking. 
Teddy was the best dog a person could want. 
 He was a gentle dog.  He was a happy dog.  He was perfect.
Teddy is/was my baby.  He was devoted to me and loved me unconditionally.  I miss the way he followed me around the house, I miss the way he would sing to me when I would come home, I miss him sleeping on our bed and the way he laid at my feet.  I miss HIM!  I want Teddy to come home, I want to hold him again, I want to tell him how much I love him.  I want HIM back!
Ellie Mae missed Teddy too.  For the first week he was gone she wasn't herself. 
Slowly she started to be her spunky self again.  
Now Ellie is the one who follows me around the house and has to be in the same room as me. 
My husband wants me to get another puppy.  He doesn't like to see me so sad and thinks a puppy will help me heal.  I can't do it. I am not ready to open my heart up. Not yet.
I love you Teddy!

  1. ((HUGS)) Of course your not ready. It took me at least 8 months before I started to feel ready. You will know......

  2. It's so hard losing a pet. Been there and I understand your pain.

  3. Awwww, I'm so sorry Tami. Those are beautiful pictures. It is definitely hard to open up to another friend when you are still grieving and that's okay. I know how that feels.

  4. It was a terrible day when we lost our big yellow Lab, Sam. I said I would never do that again......but soon after got two toy poodles who have captured our hearts (even though they can be very bad boys!). Glad you have Ellie Mae to help.

  5. We lost our Buffy, our yellow Lab on 9/6 - so I hurt & ache with you... its a horrible feeling. Our other dogs still act like something is wrong. So hard for everyone. We're looking for another one already... having 3 in the house instead of 4 just feels WRONG to me... it hurts, but I know my heart needs more dogs to be rescued & loved on... I know that will come for you too. HUGS!

  6. I'm sorry to hear about Buffy. At one time we had three dogs. The house does seem empty with just one. Ellie is a lot calmer and has to be next to me. When Teddy was here, she was very independent.

  7. I'm glad Ellie is here too. =)

  8. Thank you Traci. Kind words help with the healing process.

  9. Sometimes the grief consumes me. I know it will lessen in time, but it doesn't make it any easier.

  10. It changes everyone's routines... that's for sure :(

  11. Thanks Debbie. I'm sure the day will come too.

  12. Teddy was the best dog a person could want.

    He was a gentle dog. He was a happy dog. He was perfect.

    I love these lines. If I would make a few changes it would say: Gigi was the best dog a person could want. She was a gentle dog. She was a happy dog. She was perfect.

    It has been many years since my Gigi is no longer with us but I still remember the way she would cuddle up against me when I was sad (she just knew) and how she would get all excited when I came home and how she followed me around and had to sleep in bedroom at night to keep an eye on me.

    you'll never stop loving or missing Teddy but the sadness will fade into fond memories.

    Sending you a hug.

  13. Tammy, I am so sorry for your loss. Our Parker has been gone 14 months. Finally I can look at pictures without falling apart. He was our second dog, we haven't been able to adopt #3 yet. Not sure if that day will come. I wish you peace and comfort in knowing that Teddy misses you too. Hugs
