      Rough day

      I wasn’t sure which forum to post to. Kimber may not physically be with us, but y’all know she’s still with me emotionally. With the move and new job, I’ve kept myself sufficiently occupied that I’ve been sad and cried plenty, but for the most part have been functional.

      But today we went back to our old house to get ready for its sale- back to our Kimber house. And I felt her presence so strongly, I immediately started sobbing. I cried while packing, sobbed while throwing things out, cried more every time I passed a Kimber spot. I cry and cry and I miss her so much.

      She was such a huge part of your life. Its so hard we get I feel your grief. I hope tomorrow is better. Its compacted I am sure because you are leaving the home you spent precious time with Kimber. She will be with you and soon I hope memories will bring you comfort. Sending you a virtual hug.

      My heart dog, Dudley, died on my birthday in 1993. We placed his ashes beneath a freshly planted tree. My parents haven’t lived in that house for over 10 years but last summer I drove by and saw a giant pine tree growing in the backyard. All of those memories came back and I found myself bawling about a dog I lost over 25 years ago. They are never gone. But then i started remembering all the fun and goofy moments - like remembering how he used to steal apples from the apple tree next to his pine tree - and ended up driving on with a smile on my face thanks to those memories. I know it’s hard, but I hope you can focus on all of the positive memories!

      Boy, do I understand. The new job, the new house, maybe they are the distractions that help you go through each day but the pain is still fresh and it's understandable that your trip to the old house was like a trip back in time to happy days with Kimber. She'll always be in your heart, waiting to star in the funny and happier memories for you, too. Hugs to you.

      All of us who have lost someone we loved understand. The hardest part of it is the unpredictability. I broke down in the grocery store once, the face on the dog biscuit package looked so much like Jet. Cry for Kimber. She will send you good memories too, to help you.

      When Cookie got hit by a car, I didn't cry until I got home the next day and saw his toys scattered on the floor.

      Gentle hugs to you.

      I think it makes sense to be hit with intense grief when going back to "her" home. I found grief came and went and would randomly hit hard. sometimes out of no where.

      This is probably the best place to be to find folks who commiserate. Hugs to you as you remember sweet Kimber.

      I can relate. I still miss my Sprocket terribly. She passed on Jan 31.
