    Tracey I think of Winston and you and your family everyday wondering why it happened. There's no sense to it at all. He was such a beautiful bully and we all mourn with you.

    It is important, Tracey. These are wonderful pictures, love the ones where
    he's lying alongside his mother, Bella. It comforts me they are all together
    & watching over all of you. It hurts so badly they were each way too young
    to go to Heaven. There certainly aren't any good answers only acceptance
    of a very tough thing and letting it go...that is a complicated process and takes
    time. We are here for you and for your family, always.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Well it's a good thing you guys don't see me at home in private… the breakdown's in the shower, or when I find a special toy. I guess the worst was when my grandson kept asking for his "Winsy". I don't know how you explain to a 2 year old about death I bought him a stuffed bulldog and explained to him that Winsy was in heaven. I'm trying really hard NOT to be angry, because it would be so easy to fill that sorrow w/it and it would just eat at me. I haven't called the surgeon back, she left me her personal cell number right after it happened… I'm not ready for that yet. I wanted to put closure on here since I just honored his mom w/her birthday that just passed, but closure in my heart?!! That may take months or years...

    I cannot even imagine I think in your situation many would feel anger, I know I would.. I do It's heartbreaking to hear about your grandson, that must be so hard for you both. Kids deal with things greatly though, they many times see things more simple and clear. And I still think you're amazing you're here supporting others, giving great advice and loving comments I don't think anyone can ever be ready to make a call like that but I hope if you do it will make you feel better. I don't know how grief works but they say it gets easier...

    I am angry… but I know that NO matter how angry I get it doesn't change the fact that he's gone. I have 3 kids watching my reactions to this, and trying to deal w/their own grief… I don't want them to be afraid of death or loss, and I don't want them to never LOVE a pet again because sometimes they leave. I have been very fortunate in my life to have amazing role models, my great-grandmother buried her baby brother, child, husband and of course both parents. She would grieve deeply, but she also continued on… she enjoyed every day of her life. I was there holding my dad's hand when he passed, and from that day on I've never been afraid of death… he was at peace, and I know that my babies are at peace as well. Sometimes you have to pay attention to the lessons that you learn along your journey, they are preparing you for what is to come...

    I think you are just such an amazing woman. You are right about paying attention to the journey and sometimes that is easier said than done, but you have actually done it. You are such a center of strength. Your family is looking to you for direction and you are shining through with the example you are setting for them. Your faith, family and of course your friends here at EBN will get you through this. I continue to think of you and pray for your family every day.
    My smooshy face boy!
