Everyone here understands exactly how you feel.
Your boy waited for his mommy so he could say goodbye, he wanted you to know that he loved you and to make sure he got that one last kiss in before he had to leave.
I understand how much you love him, and just how lonley it can be even surrounded by everyone else that you love... because that one incredible soul is the one that you don;t have physically beside you.
Your boy is with you now though, wrapped up and placed in the most secure and safe place a boy could be - and that is in your heart. You can hold him there with you all the days of your life!
And a strange as it may sound, he is also atthe bridge, a place where he is renewed, young, healthy, happy. No pain, no cold or hunger will ever be known, only play and happiness. There is no knowledge of the passing of time and no confusion to cloud his mind. You Woody Pie, the yellow lab, is patiently waiting for his momma, he is in no hurry and his love will remain constant and burning bright.
Take care and know that we are thinking of and praying for you, your family and your Woody Pie.
