Healing after losing your dog

I still can't believe this month it will be 6 years since my best friend, my most loyal companion, my handsome furry baby left this world. The day my dog, DJ, crossed the rainbow bridge my friend Alison encouraged me to write down my emotions each day as I struggled to figure out how to live my life without my best furry friend. So, every day for a month, I wrote him a letter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


I came across those letters this week and as I was reading them, one part in particular grabbed me. I wanted to share this in hopes it can bring some peace to others. I find it helpful on days I miss DJ so much to look at one’s existence in a different light after they are gone ...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


“Why you? Why now? Why couldn’t we have more time? Just one more minute, hour, day to hug you, to take you to the courtyard so you can lay in the grass and bask in the sunshine. I still don’t know how to do this life without you here, but I keep telling myself we just have to do it differently now.
