On our way to the last 5K we would ever run together.  Colt was as responsible for getting me running as anyone.  Once we started to run together, he kept me going.  He loved it so much.  He could hear my watch beep anywhere in the house…that meant we were going running.  It took me over 3 months to run “our” route again after we lost him, and I cried when I did.

  1. Oh dear, I know exactly how you are feeling. Just last week our dear Springer Maggie died in our arms. Today I walked into the bedroom where she spent all her time near the end and I said her name out loud. Her bud Austin immediately started looking for her. I have tears and though there are no words to ease your pain, simply know that I fully understand that bond and the grief when they are no longer with us.

    • Diane, thank you for your comforting words. I am so sorry about your loss of your beloved Maggie. You are right, there are no words, but it really helps when others understand. I fully understand your grief too. With great joy comes great sorrow. I am so thankful for the joy Colt brought me.

  2. I’m so sorry for the loss of your faithful, furry companion. They love us unconditionally, and they leave such a big hole in our hearts when they go. We’re just lucky for the time we get to share with them.
    Peace to you.
