If you can find out what she gives her dog, please let me know.

Brett, one of the girls I work with is married to a vet & her daughter is a vet.  She was telling me her daughter had to give her dog something to calm her down, that it was natural & really helped.  I know how you feel about your dog.  I love the weekends with my little dog.  I felt so lucky when I got her.  She is my treasure.  I wish things were different with my brother, but wishing will sure not change anything.

We're on the same train, Sue.

How true.  My dog was a rescue & I have had her for nine wonderful years.  She was at least one to two years old when I got her.  I am thankful for each day I have her, but I have to work.  I hate leaving her, but I don't have a choice.  I know the loss of my Mom & then being left is stressful for her.  My Mom loved her so much & they were so close.  She was wonderful for my Mom.  Life is not easy & I feel for what you are going through.  I have one sibling, a brother, but he doesn't understand.  Thanks for listening to me.  I appreciate that.

Yeah, that's the hard part. Not long ago my little dog had her sister and my mom. She was never alone. Now, there is just too much waiting in her life. Waiting for her human to wake up, and waiting for her human to come home. It's a shame. She's 13 years old I wish that I could just baby her every day for the rest of her life. Life just won't allow for that. It's a hard reality of life. You can't hide from it. Unless you are rich, you can't just stay at home. Life will come for you, regardless of what you want.

I know how you feel.  When I leave for work my dog looks so sad.  My Mom was always with her.  She grieves over my Mom & then I have to leave her to work.  I felt guilty over leaving my Mom & now I feel guilty over my dog.  I take her everywhere with me when I am not working.  She is small & really good in the car or anywhere.  My brother said she thinks she is a baby.  She is my baby & means the world to me.  I really can feel for you & Theresa.  They are family & she is my family.

That's it exactly, Sue. I work a lot. She knows when I am getting ready to leave, and when I put her in her crate, she has the most defeated look on her face. It's kills me. There is no way that she can understand. I don't think I can have another dog after I lose this one. It's too much.

Sometimes, when I come home at night, she will not hear me coming through the door. I will see her, head thrown back, baying like a coyote. I will joke with her, "Was it really that bad?" It's not a funny joke though. It's all just very sad. Way too much guilt.

Comment by Sue Toler on August 29, 2019 at 1:35pm

Brett, I have thought about you & Theresa.  I know how you both feel about your dogs.  I feel the same way about mine.  I felt guilty when I went to work & had to leave my Mom.  Now I feel so guilty leaving my dog.  I really hope things are better for both of you.  I love the weekends with my dog, but the anxiety & guilt come first thing Monday morning & having to leave her.  Keeping you & Theresa in my thoughts.  Take care,

Hi Danny. 
Surviving is art which we all need to practice. Today I met a friend whose father is witnessing the similar illness as my mother i.e. late stage cancer. He is also going through the same emotional turmoil as I went in 2018. After this discussion I remembered all the moments during my mother's treatment and whole day I was not feeling well. I need to survive and have learnt to live with this guilt. 

Comment by Theresa on August 17, 2019 at 7:00am

Danny. I hear you.  December will be 4 years
