I know what you mean. I hope fostering helps you; I'm sure it will help the dogs.
I did receive the e-mail about Zoom, but I am not interested in participating. If you are, I hope you find it to be good/helpful.

Hi Bluebird, 

Losing Babie J broke the other half of my heart. I know I can never replace her just like Julian but in her honor I will be a foster mom. BTW, did you get an email from Diana at this site with an invitation to join their Zoom meetings?. It should be interesting.

I want to be clear, I am not suggesting another dog as a replacement, just saying that maybe having another furry little one to love might help. Entirely up to you, and there's no right or wrong choice, just the choice that's best for you.

Linda,
I'm sorry about Babie J. Our cat Benny died a few years ago, and it was bad both because I love him and because he was a link to my husband. So I do understand how hard that is. As for me, I'm the same as always. Sad, angry, wishing I had died with my husband. This will never change, for me. I hope you are able to get back to some peace, though. Have you thought about adopting another dog? For some people that helps, for others it's too painful.

Hello Joe & Bluebird,

Happy New Year.  I haven't been on the site since September. My Sweet Babie J was declining with dementia and she needed all my attention. She passed away 5/20/20. After 8 years since Julian died, this past year got a little easier, Losing My Sweet Babie J was a big blow. She saved me after he died and now I have lost her. I know I am not alone in thanks to The Rainbow Bridge website. It is a place I can go to for support because my family & friends just a Dog to them. She was my heart dog and no other will ever replaced her. How have you two being doing??

I'm still here Linda. Have trouble with some sites but it's in the settings on my end. I had to turn off a privacy setting to get here which I never had to do before. A wee or two ago, I posted on losing someone to cancer with no problem. Now I have to fiddle with settings just to get to this site, and fiddle more to sign in. Has to do with HTTP vs. HTTPS. In the past it just gave a warning but now won't even connect to the site unless I allow tracking.

Nothings changed with me except worse. Joe

Hello,

Is there anyone around from our old group, Morgan, Joe, Trinia and others. 

Comment by Jan Leslie Abrohms on August 25, 2020 at 5:01am

Oh Joseph, I am so sorry!  It’s been less than three months for me, and I still find it hard to accept. Be good to yourself!

Comment by Linda Engberg on August 24, 2020 at 8:14am

Some quotes

Today is the first day of the rest of your life - UnknownThis was something my mom used to have hanging in our living room, and since Jeremy passed away, it's something that is very close to my heart. Why? I'm still trying to sort through my heart and soul for the answer. There are so many quotes I never paid attention to when I still had my husband and our life together. However, since the day he died, a lot of those quotes have made their way into the essence of my being. Here are a few of…See More

Jeremy's accident

I've decided that I'm going to write my blog/journal entry in my Google Drive app, and then post it here because quite frankly, there's nothing like being in the middle of a sentence, deep in thought, and having your phone lose your spot because your hand caused the phone screen to rotate accidentally. Today is gonna be another one full of tears. I'm going to take a guess here, and say, "It's probably going to be a natural thing for me to start crying (off and on) around Thanksgiving and not…See More

Complicated

I am struggling with my grief and I really feel like I don't have anyone to talk to or anyone who can understand what I am feeling.  My relationship was an extremely complicated one in which I am married and he was not.  However, as our relationship was beginning he got a young girl pregnant and she lived with him.  He was committed to making sure his child was well cared for and that included taking care of the mother of his child.  He became such an important part of my life and the crazy…See More
