I know this is the Crossfit board but I thought I would share.
Today I lost my best friend Tazzy. I can't explain how much it hurts. She was my side kick for 8 years. Taz was sweet and gentle, a people dog not a dogs dog. I will miss her laying in the yard while I do my CF workouts. She would watch me like a hawk and then drift off to sleep.
I'm just glad I was with her at her last moment.
She was the best dog in the world.

Jennifer,

I am sorry for your loss. It is alway painful to lose a dear friend. I lost Trixie my best friend about three weeks ago and I still hear her scampering around the house.

Please accept my condolences as well. There is no friend like a dog. My family has been through that loss, too. Even after four years, we still miss our first dog.

Jennifer,

My sincerest condolences. There's no way to adequately prepare for the loss of a friend that loves you so completely. I'm glad you decided to post. If you're not surrounded by dog lovers, it can be hard to express your pain without getting blank stares in return.

For various reasons I waited 13 years after my last dog died to get a new one. That was silly. Not to hit you too soon, but you obviously have a lot of love to give and there are so many dogs that need a home. If I had to do it over, I would have gotten a new dog as soon as the sharpest of the pains was over. FWIW, we rescued a 4 month old pit last August. She could easily vie for the title of "biggest lover ever". She'll lay on the couch with my girlfriend pretty much as long as there's someone to lay with. There are a ton of great pits (and really dogs of all breeds) out there that don't have homes www.pbrc.net

God Bless.

Thank you all for your kind words. I feel lost right now. I can't even move. In time I'm sure this will pass.
As for breeds I do like Pit's but I'm more of a Boxer person and I always get my pets from rescues. We still have one boxer. Tazzy was the light of my life.

Jenifer,
My situation and my sentiments are almost identical to John's. I would just like to add that Tazzy had beautifull eyes. I really like her picture.
Sincerely

Jennifer,
My sincere condolences on your loss. 4-legged family members are in some ways harder to lose than 2-legged ones. They love us unconditionally; they are "ours," and there's usually no baggage or complication. Just love. I lost my best friend cat of 14 years one year ago this month, and I can tell you that it doesn't hurt as sharply now, but just as deep. I can also tell you that in time the happy memories will ease the grief, but not soon enough. Keep your chin up.
