Lenny: Chance has been your best buddy through all of this stroke recovery stuff. My heart breaks for you and your family. He will be sorely missed. Take your time to grieve, heal. And yes, please do post as time goes on as to your feelings. If it helps, we are here for you, just as you have been for all of us. Big hug and please know I will be thinking of you. Debbie

Dear Lenny:

I am so happy to see you have blogged. This is the best thing to do... like you have stated it is very healing and gives you peace.You are very loved and cared about here and there are quite a few of us who have lost a beloved fur baby. I can relate with you as I had gotten my precious Harley Boy when I got home from my long Hospital and Rehab stay. He became my therapy dog and when he passed away it was terrible. BUT, there came another blessing for me... when the timing was right, BEAU came into our lives. He is working out great and the love he gives to me is unconditional. He is doing really well and it has been a year of learning one another ... but there is JOY again in our lives. In time, God will place just the right four legged one in yours as well. I love your Blogs so I hope you will update and let us know how you are doing. Please know you are not going through this by yourself. You have so many who truly care about you. Please let your family know I am keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. Just take things a day at a time.

I have great comfort in knowing Chance crossed over that Rainbow Bridge and Harley met him and they have been running around all day. Both of them whole and perfect.

Lenny, I was just reading your post through tears. I know how you feel as I have lost pets also. Chance was lucky to have you for his friend as well. I don't have a dog but my cats were of great comfort to me when Larry first had his stroke. I could go home and cuddle with them while Larry was still in recovery at the hospital. I hope you find another pet to be your friend. I also want to thank you for being so supportive on the StrokeNet forum. It means a lot to all of us. :You-Rock:

I am so sorry to hear about Chance. I know what it is like to lose your buddy. As you may remember I lost Brown Sugar (my buddy) in March of last year. I still miss him a great deal but it's not quite so bad now as it was in March of last year. I now have Fudge(my new buddy) and having her helps lessen the pain of losing Brown sugar. When you're ready find new buddy there are plenty in the shelters and rescue groups that would love to be your new buddy. My heart goes out to you hang in there it will get better.
