Gratitude

Thank you all for the kind emails and comments about Biscotti. I was surprised by how comforting it was to me that so many of you were thinking of us and sending us prayers. Surprised because I thought nothing could make me feel better.

I'd like to post some things about Biscotti- some of my favorite stories and photographs of her- but it's just too raw and close to the surface right now. She was a fine dog. And I am grateful that she didn't suffer for even a moment.

Always know that we are here for you! Looking forward to future posts about Biscotti when the time is right for you. Very grateful too that she never suffered. I have 2 black labs and can't imagine the loss you are feeling right now. Many hugs to you.

Always remember you gave her a good life and you let her do the work she was born and bred to do and she absolutely loved it. Many blessings.

omg I am devastated for you. We have four dogs, and I try not to imagine life without them. I am so so terribly sorry. Biscotti was a beautiful animal, and lived a wonderful life.
Sending you lots of hugs and love from the desert...

We are all here for you. Know that time does heal some. We lost our beloved Gwynneth 6 years ago this past July 3rd. She had a genetic blood disorder(secondary thrombocytopenia). She was only 14 months old. The pain does lessen with time I promise. We were quite literally lost for a while. Time helps you regain the balance that is lost at the moment. Biscotti's love and the blessing of having her in your life will always be with you!

I still remember exactly how it felt to watch Katy get hit by that car, and she was gone even before I reached her. About the only thing that really helped me feel better? Every night, I just sat in front of my computer and wrote down EVERYTHING I could think of that made her special and unique. The kinds of memories you don't think will fade, but that do. I figured that, if I wasn't going to be able to think of anything but her, anyway, I might as well at least channel it in a more positive direction and think about all the good, cute, funny, loving things, rather than the awful fact that she was no longer HERE. It actually helped AND left me with a really nice (if bittersweet) record of how loved she was.

Love is a Powerful thing...
Prayers, Love, Community...feeling and knowing that warmth, as a warm sweater made with love...

very powerful indeed.

I am so happy to hear that the love and words (even though few can really comfort) acknowledging the loss of your dear Biscotti DID help and cuddle your pain.

...and though the transition will be hard...Biscotti is still with you, just in a different way now.

Love Never Dies.

Sadness morphs to sweetness as the time you shared is precious.

With much Love,
Always Beaming,

Rona
