I've made it through another day. I didn't cry as much today, but I still hurt...a lot. I'm trying to spend more time remembering the fun things we did and the funny things Stinky Wink did. I'm still gathering his pictures. I have filled one album already. I didn't know I had so many pictures, but I'm delighted that I do. I wish so much I could pet him and scratch behind his silky ears. There hasn't been any hair to sweep up. I saw my neighbor out back this afternoon and she said, "My God, your yard seems empty." My wife said she thought she heard a bark when she was showering this morning, and I could swear I heard a squeak toy this afternoon...wishful thinking on both our parts. I took a lot of his grooming items, food, insulin (which I used once) and syringes to Homeward Bound shelter. I'm not ready to give up the other things.

I'm so sorry for your loss.  Healing takes time and our pets are just as much a part of our families as the humans are.  It will take time, but eventually the ache will start to dull and it will be easier to remember the good times without feeling so sad.

So sorry for your loss.

I think all of us can relate in one way or another to what you are feeling.  When I lost my Dillon almost 5 years ago, a big part of me died along with him.  It took me weeks to be functional again.  I still think of him and cry almost every day.  But I've found happiness in my new pets, and can smile when I think of the funny things Dilly used to do.  I know I will see him again, and I still feel his presence around me in my darkest days.  Time will ease your pain....hang in there.  *hug*

I'm so sorry for your loss. My husband and I lost our Noli about 2 years ago and it was the most difficult thing we ever had to endure. Although we have 2 new Corgi's that we love dearly, we both still cry when we think or talk about her, but also smile and laugh when we think about the love she brought to our lives and the silly cute things that she did. Although we could never replace Noli, it helped to bring home another dog. One dog was our original intention, but we ended up bringing home 2 sisters. It added joy going to see the puppies every week at the breeders for weeks before they were old enough to bring home. We drove for hours out to Diana Nett's to see the precious pups and although it didn't make us forget (which we will never forget), it did add some joy back in our lives.

We are so sorry for your loss. I lost my beloved Tasha 3 yrs ago and I still cry some days when I think of her. It did help to bring another dog home to love. Of course it won't replace Stinky Wink but we have lots of room in our hearts for love <3 I waited a year to get a new pup, but I wish I hadn't waited so long :) Saying prayers for you guys... and I firmly believe that God has a special place in heaven for our fur friends <3

It is the simple everyday things you miss the most. They help us see what is important. Corgi hugs!

So sorry :-( Do you know the rainbow bridge story ?

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. 

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. 
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. 
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. 

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. 
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. 

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. 

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. 

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Amazing how one little dog can so get a hold of a person's heart and also fill up a whole house.  Corgis are special and non-Corgi owners will never ever understand.  It sounds silly but I'm a better person for having owned (and owning) Corgis.  My guess is that you are too, Randy.  Hang in there.
