Temporary Hiatus – My Loss

I don’t know when I’m going to be active again. Right now, I can’t really think about it and I may need it later to distract myself but at this moment I might not respond to comments over the next few days. I have posts ready for the rest of this week so thankfully I haven’t had to worry about that… But I lost my dog today.

I’m so thankful for the fact that I had the day off yesterday because of the holiday and I was able to spend the entire day with him. He wasn’t feeling well this weekend so I was just looking after him, petting him a lot and I put his bed next to mine before I went to bed. I kept petting him a little bit while I was laying there and he’d nuzzle my hand. Then I fell asleep and when I woke up in the morning he was gone.

And now I have to figure out what to do with his stuff… I can’t even think about it. I just thought he was going to get better. He was 18 but until now there was nothing wrong. The Vet even said that he was healthy and it wouldn’t be surprising if he lived to be 26.

Today I lost my best friend, Piper. He was just shy of celebrating his 18th birthday. He was the sweetest little guy that you could ever meet.


He loved being held like a baby and would show his devotion to you by lovingly shoving his nose into everything – never licking.


Sometimes he would run around outside, but only on three legs even though all four worked perfectly fine. He even hopped like a little grey bunny.


His favourite stuffed animals were little grey dogs just like himself and he couldn’t pass up a good meatball treat.


I don’t know what I’m going to do without him.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I, too, recently lost my dog and I know what you must be going through because he wasn’t just a dog, he was family. My thoughts are with you in this difficult time. May you remember all the good times you had together 💕

      Thank you, I’m so sorry to hear that you lost your dog as well. He was definitely family. It’s so strange to get up in the morning and not have to take him out or walk around and he’s not following me.. 💜

    I’m so so so so so sorry for your loss, Kyera. I know how much he meant to you, and he seems like the sweetest dog. Animals are part of the family, and you lost such an important family member. Take your time, heal, and know that we’re all here for you to support you. I’m so sorry.

      Thanks sweetie 💜 I just had to drive to the vet this morning to pick up his ashes, so that was tough. It’s all the little things. Coming home from work or waking up in the morning and realizing I don’t have to take him out. He was seriously the sweetest dog, everyone loved him.

        Oh gosh, yes, I can imagine. You don’t realize just how much things like change, but I’m so sorry. From the stories you told and the way you described him, he sounded like the perfect little doggie. Let me know if there’s anything you need. 😦
