I can't say what I feel. A story: after Mars was pronounced dead, a vet tech came up to him saying he wanted to pay his respects. I want to pay my respects and my love.

MJ, Mars filled a whole in your life for a short period of time, but remains in your heart.

Hang in there. I still have times where I am washed with grief and sorry over the loss of my dogs.

Words from the heart can sometimes be hard to write, but I hear you loud and clear. Mars was an amazing pup, a cherished friend and companion.

I know when I lost my Shoshi I so wanted to do a good tribute but I couldn't. In time I was able to add things and that helped. There is no rush, no deadline, take your time and write what you want when you want.

My heartfelt sympathies and deepest respect for Mars too. To repeat what someone at our vet told me, "his last breath on earth is his first breath in heaven." hugging

Sending a belated hug to you MJ, those months after loss are so hard. With indy, Max, and my Mom, it took 14 months each to turn the corner. Working on my dad's 14 months now I guess. As someone said to me, we are never the same, they change us forever, and I hope that you can sometimes feel Mars smiling with you nowadays.

Lisa-you are like some scented breeze lifting off the gloom. Unfortunately, I sometimes go back to terrible moments with Marzipan and they just don't dissipate.

I have not yet introduced shining little Nova-but she will come to the good people here.

With Mars-it's hard to let go.

MJ, we all know the pain. It's awful. Just this week I had another nightmare about Shoshi. Woke me from a dead sleep and upset me at times throughout the following days. Its so hard when we have that special. pup. I'm terrified of December. Two years ago in December I lost Shiloh. Last year December (and within two days of the month Shiloh passed) my Shoshi died. Now I'm looking at Eli and just praying for the best.

Mars was just that special dog that stays with us always. I'm so glad you have Nova now and are able to make wonderful memories again. I'm so looking forward to meeting her on the boards here, So whenever your ready to share, we will be here waiting. hugging

Ditto! But no rush, I'm sure you will introduce your new little girl, Nova, in due time. hug

I don't think we ever let go, we just someday learn to accept this is where we are. And we learn to accept little things here and there, at least speaking from my experience.

I'm very happy to hear about Nova wub

When Jazz came here, I thought of her as my therapy dog after losing Indy and Max. She really is a great joy.
