    It is my first day back to work today, and this place reminds me of Thursday when I received the unexpected phone call from the vet. I have been feeling like throwing up all day, but reading these posts has made me feel SO much better. Thank you all so much for your support, prayers and words! Someday I will post a picture of my Lola Bean. Right now it is too painful and I had to remove all of her belongings and pictures from my house, work and even cell phone. I hope someday I can look at them again and smile.

    There's a memorial forum here on EBN where members post the most beautiful tributes to their lost bulldogs, I hope someday you'll feel strong enough to post there about Lola so we can all get to know her a little

    Hugs to you and Juno, take one day at a time
    You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.

    Lola is watching from above and saying "don't cry Mama,You gave me the best life I could have,and I have no pain, and no more seizures-I am free and I miss you,but I am happy, and want that for you"

    I had a German Shepherd,who had very bad seizures.She too passed away,on the same night my husband did. He was the one who picked her out of the litter.I felt like she wanted to go with her Daddy,but it was a very difficult time. I am still here,but my heart has many scars,from many losses.
    It will take time for you,and don't let anyway scoff at your grieving and sadness-many people just don't "get it". WE ALL do! Talk to us when you need to.

    “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"

    I am so sorry for your loss. It is heartbreaking enough to lose them but when they go suddenly and too soon, it is even more devastating. I felt the same after we lost our pug, Rex, unexpectedly at the age of 2. He was so perfect and so amazing, I was so depressed and couldn't look at any of his pictures. Over time, it became a bit more bearable to look at his pictures and smile at the memories but it took a long grieving period. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time and I hope that Juno can help with your healing and give you comfort.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    Thank you all so much. I made it through the work day and your kind words helped more than you know! When I got home, there was Juno, happy and loving. She made me so happy. I think I will be okay and she will be a perfect fit for our home. I only wish Lola was able to meet her.

    Shannon I am so very sorry for your loss, it is a very tough time to get through after I lost my pugs i said I will never have another to go through the grief again but after seven years we got FTSE best thing we ever did but I dread the day that we no longer have him as it seems our bullies don't seem to have a long life and as we love and treat them like our kids it the same as losing a child and others that don't feel this way don't understand.

    Sending to you and Juno.

    RIP sweet Lola
    Two little having fun together

    I love this text and it's what you've done for Juno in Lola's honor<3

    A Dog's Last Will and Testament


    Before humans die, they write their last Will & Testament, and give their home and all they have to those they leave behind. If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I'd ask....
    To a poor and lonely stray I'd give my happy home, my bowl, cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys. The lap which I loved so much, the hand that stroked my fur and the sweet voice which spoke my name.

    I'd will to the sad scared shelter dog the place I had in my human's heart, of which there seemed no bounds.


    So when I die please do not say, "I will never have a dog again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand." Instead go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope and give MY place to her.


    This is the only thing I can give...the love I left behind.
    You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.
