thank you sweetheart. it’s definitely hard to get thru, each day gets better but when you have a “moment”, those moments hit hard. ruben was definitely family. i planned just about everything around him. he had a special place in my heart that nobody else could ever fill, and like you, i have a family/man/etc. but our pets?? irreplaceable!
i had Ruben cremated, and I kept his ashes in a doggy urn. they also gave me a clipping of his fur and a mold of his footprint. i spread some of his ashes at my parents house because they loved him just as much as i did, and he spent a great deal of time pissing in their yard. i flew the remains back home with me in Atlanta. some may think that was hella drastic, but i dont really give a fuck. that was my baby and you do things like that for your babies. he’ll always be with me. thru memories, pictures, videos and more. very special pup <3
