My Dear Carmen

I decided to bring my precious dog home and bury him here. When I was at the cemetery, I just had a gut feeling that wasn't good. I didn't know what it was until yesterday when I realized my baby should be buried at home where he lived and where he passed away. I will also like the fact that I can go right outside to visit his spot rather than driving through traffic 40 minutes away and who knows how often that will get to happen. I feel much better about this. We will be bringing him home tomorrow. We have a few things to put inside his casket and we bought a fake rock that has a cute saying on it to put there. I will also plant flowers and it will be special.

This pain on the other hand is so hard. I feel so sick and sad. I miss every little and big thing about him and everything reminds me of him, everything. I know I will always miss him but wonder how long this aching will go on.

i think it's a good decision to bury your baby at home. your heart will always ache for him. after two years i still get teary eyed thinking about our little peanut that was killed by a coyote. it is truly amazing how much we can love our four legged friends and how much they love us in return.

I am so sorry to hear about your baby's passing. That must be so difficult to go through- I am glad you decided to keep him close to your home. You can feel like he is always with you..

I had to tell you...I had a dream last night about me trying to save a dog. I can't remember what the circumstances were (I think it may have been a rescue from the pound), but the dog's name? Carmen or Carmine. I can't remember which. But how interesting! And the dog in my dream ended up doing really well.

How are you?

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. We lost our dog this summer and it was really hard. Hope you feel better soon!

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog! I think you made a good decision to bury him at home. My childhood dog died while we were in the process of moving, so my bff's parents let my dad bury her at their house.
