So...  
...Mark & I have been spending the weekend doing things outside the house. The house seems sort of empty without Sydney - since we brought her home as a puppy about 2 1/2 months after we purchased our home. There was hardly ever any time over the last 10 years where we were home, but she wasn't.

I won't lie, the last few days haven't been easy for us, but it has gotten easier. Yesterday I pulled out Sydney's puppy album and we sat around a bit after breakfast talking about all the funny Sydney memories we had. And I think now we can both look at her photos and not feel completely sad when we see them.

As I've said earlier in my previous post, we were completely overwhelmed this week by the support and love that we received from all of you. I've tried to thank everyone individually, but we really wanted you all to know how much your kind words meant to us this past week. HUGS to you all!!

(((((more hugs))))) In my experience, there will be moments where it feels devastating all over again, but they'll grow fewer and farther between. I still get a bit sad everytime I go to visit my parents and Sadie-dog isn't there to greet me, but it's not such a sharp hurt as it was the first few times we visited after she died. :(

I know that at the moment the days are not easy for you. So I'm glad to hear that you could talk about the wonderful Sydney memories.

And yes, I made the same experience like kyliebeth. During the first time after Lauser died it was difficult to go for walks with Susi (my friend had asked if I still wanted to do it but I did not like that Susi had to wait in the car and so I did it) or to see some other dogs who had been his friends. Right now it's this way that I still feel sad sometimes and I don't know if this kind of sadness ever will go but for the most part thinking back of Lauser and my time with him gives me good feelings and a smile; I'm thankful for the time we could spent together and the wonderful memories.

I love you, Sheri. Please take care of yourself and thanks for staying around here.

Hugs to you and Mark

It does get easier in time. Trust me. It does.
