My thoughts are with you Jasem. I know how hard it is to lose dear friends. Take any time you need to recover from this sad event.

Yesterday, I was devastated to the loss of my two dogs. We've been together for years and I love them immensely. Unfortunately, they were lost yesterday due to heat stroke because of high humidity along with playing & exercise which turned out to be a deadly combination. Guilt overcame me and my heart was torn to see Juli & Tommy depart this world right in front of my eyes. I felt so helpless. There are no words to describe my attachment to them. A candle in my life is forever dark now.



I need time to grieve and recover so I am taking sometime off. Hopefully not too long. I appreciate your understanding of this matter. I hope no one goes through this pain. Rest in Peace my angels.


Dear Jasem,

For whatever it is worth, I know exactly how you are feeling.

The worst thing I had to do was having to take my dog to the vet to put her to sleep. She had terminal kidney failure and I had dragged out the inevitable until it became unbearable to see her suffer any more. I felt like a murderer for days afterwards and the pain is coming back now that I am writing this.



Like your dogs, she liked to play and was unstoppable even in the deep of summer. She was close to a fatal heat stroke more than once, because she did not want to give up chasing balls or frisbees. On more than one occasion she collapsed and I had to douse her with water in an emergency situation. The lack of sweat glands clearly puts dogs at an evolutionary disadvantage in hot climates like ours.

You will never forget your companions, but take comfort now in the fact that the pain will subside with time.

Best wishes,

Jo
