Good morning beautiful humans, happy Wednesday! Thank you for spending part of your morning with me. Welcome to Life with Lane!
It has only been two days since my dog Dusty passed away and I am heartbroken. I long to just hold him one more time even if only for a few minutes. I imagine its going to take quite awhile to heal. I mean, he was my dog for 13 wonderful years.
Last night I slept with his little sweater on the pillow beside mine. When I woke up it was the first thing I saw and it made me smile. He was such a sweet dog and talking and writing about him helps the healing process. There are moments during the day and night when I cry. He made such an imprint on my heart.
I realized through my heartbreak and bouts of crying, I was not the only one affected. This isn’t all about me. There is someone else that is sadder than I am; my dog Onyx! Dusty’s true best friend of 13 years.
When I was at work or on vacation and I didn’t take the boys; Dusty and Onyx were still together. They were always by each other’s side. Now Onyx doesn’t have Dusty anymore. His heart is broken. His sidekick of 13 years is no longer there.
He looks at me with such sad eyes and I can feel his pain. I realized my heart is broken but my dog is sadder than I am. He was literally with Dusty every minute of every day for 13 years!
I’m not even sure how to help him through this other than spend more time with him and give him more attention. If anyone has any advice, please share it with me. I want to make sure I make him as comfortable as possible. I don’t want him to hurt more than he has to.
We both lost our best friend and it will take time to heal. Losing Dusty wasn’t just about me! Sometimes when we lose a loved one, we only focus on ourselves, and don’t realize we are not the only one that has been affected.
Thank you for reading my blog! They say all dogs go to Heaven, I pray that is true. Knowing Dusty is there and will be waiting for me makes me incredibly happy. I know he’ll be there smiling and running around waiting on me and my shoes to put his head on. Have a wonderful blessed day! Follow me on Instagram @lashaunlee36
