He certainly sounded like a special little guy and you must be heartbroken he's gone so quickly. I think our first reaction when we lose a beloved pet for a better word, I mean they are so much more; friend, companion, shoulder to cry on, sounding board, family and so much more. We get so used to them being there we forget their lives are so much shorter than ours. Makes me think of the film The Green Mile where Paul Edgecomb the tom hanks character looks back and says that it's hard knowing that you will have to say goodbye to everyone you love as they will all go before you and that's his curse...love that film by the way. Anyway what I'm trying to say in a bit of a long winded way is we all will probably have to say goodbye to pets we adore and even though we know it will happen it's always far too soon. That's why now I take loads of photos and videos of my boys and they will always be there when I want to spend time with them. After my little dog who I had for 17 years I said never again and here I am with my three boys. We never know when another furry bundle is going to make us change our mind, only you can decide that. I hope you feel that some day you will see another little bun who will steal your heart.
That is very true and I tried to pretend that Ollie was different & he'd live forever. I think I subconsciously knew this could happen though because I always tried to take as many videos and pictures as I could to try and capture every aspect of him and his cuteness. (Kind of like what you do w/ your little guys!) I love that movie too and that is such a wonderful quote. I just need to realize death is a part of life and one of the aspects of life we have no control over. It just hurts me that I wasn't there for his final moment and that he thought I just gave him away when I reality I was coming back for him and had been looking forward to it from the moment we separated :,( I hope I do get nother bun someday! But it will be hard because NOTHING (not even another person) could compare to my bond/love w/ Ollie. I am trying to stay positive though and I really appreciate your reply!
