    "My Timmee just left and he met Barkley at the gate and introduced him to his new friends."

    Bark will outswim all the pooches at the gate to grab the floaty  in heaven.  He always did swim harder and faster to get the floating toy.

    Damnit, damnit, dammit. Can I say that?  I want Barkley back!

    First time I have cried so hard.  It feels like such a safe place.  

    Thank you again.

      scream it in capital letters if you want

      feel whatever you feel

      crying can be a good release, so cry as you need to, especially now while your grief is so new

      Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.
      Drop by The Grieving Room on Monday nights to talk about grief.

      I just spent 3 hours on the phone with a dear friend that I met when I worked at a prison in Texas. She has lost her "ole girl" and I've lost Timmee. We talked and talked and cried and cried.

      It may not feel like it now but each tear cleanses out a little bit of hurt. We have so much grief when we lose someone we love and holding it inside is harmful. You will come to a day when you only tear up. I'm not quite there yet. I lost Tim on February 14 and I'm just not to the 'calm' part yet.

      Barkley is watching over you and his spirit guards yours. He understands that you are lonely and so very sad. You will be visited by Barkley when you least expect it. You may hear his toenails clicking, feel his breath on your arm, smell a fart, hear him sigh...or he may come in a dream. But he will visit because he still loves you as much as he did before he got his wings.

      I have certain stars in the sky that belongs to each pet I've lost in the last 15 years. I name them and when everything crashes down, I got outside and talk to the star that I'm missing right then. It helps, it really does.
