I have gotten used to not seeing him at the top of the stairs. When I'm feeding Billie, I always turn on the light in the room where Jack ate. Can't stand to not see him but the dark is worse. I am missing him today. I'm glad he's not struggling anymore, but damn, do I ever miss him.

When they leave, they take a big chunk of our hearts along, but that's just the way it is, it seems...I can't imagine a life w/o dogs, and so there is just no way around it.

Sending a great big hug, least.

My head knows the facts, but my heart misses him and the soft feel of his fur. Yes, he took a huge piece of my heart with him. We truly were soulmates.

I'm already depressed and it hurts to know he's gone from this life.

Well, I found him when he was lost and he went on to live another two glorious years.

I think it's something in the air, or the phase of the moon, least. I found myself really missing my Neddy these past few days, too.

(((Least)))) ((((Honeypig))) Such a bad feeling, knowing they are gone. Just try to remind yourself, at those moments, of how loved and happy they were on this earth, because of you.

That is one thing in which I take great joy. Just knowing I gave him such a good life and that he wanted for nothing. He always knew love, nothing but love.

Hugs to both of you, least. It's going to be a gray rainy day here, and as I light candles around the house to lift my spirits, I'll make sure to dedicate one of them to you and your boy.

He is a sturdy and handsome man, least, no wonder you miss this fine fellow! Sending hugs to you. I hope he and Ned have met Out Yonder and even as we speak are reclining on a grassy bank while the sunshine warms their fur...

The thought of Jack and Ned lying in the grass warms my heart. When I get there, I'll have a whole menagerie waiting for me.

HP, your post was beautiful.

I could picture Ned and Jack on that grassy bank. Brought a heartwarming smile to my face.
