    I could not even imagine how you are feeling about Lola. I too have an English Bulldog with severe epilepsy. Vegas was only a baby when he was diagnosed at 10 months old. I thought he was going to die before his first birthday. 8 years later... he is still with us. I don't know how or why... but I feel I'm a very lucky mom to still have this boy in my life. Epilepsy is a dangerous and very serious disease for a bulldog. Vegas has a grand mal seizure every 3 weeks or so. Recently he had 3 in one morning and I couldn't do anything about it because I wasn't even home. I have a camera on him during the day and the movement of the seizure sent a notification to my phone. Watching him suffer while I was so far away is torture no one will ever understand.

    I not only love my bulldog.... I'm in love with him too. Everything I do in a single day revolves around him, concerns him or I'm thinking about him. I have thousands and thousands of photos of him and I take more every day. I have a greeting card line that features him and his sister. I have a youtube channel with hundreds of videos of him and his little sister. He's appeared on the news and even on AFV. In fact, there is a facebook compilation of bulldogs that has gone viral with him in it. People have shared and reshared his video and I often find it on animal FB pages... with millions of views. He is my life, my first bulldog and I will never be able to recover when he passes.
    At least that is how I feel now.
    But I know in time the pain will lessen. The hurt will heal. The tears will stop. But the memories never will.

    I send my deepest condolences for your sweet Lola.

    And dang nabbit @Petra! You had me sobbing with that sweet Last Will and Testament.

    Aww as sad as it is, I love it. It reminds me that grief is for the living and that anyone who's passed has complete peace. I struggled reading your post through the tears in my eyes, Vegas is one lucky little boy having your love
    You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.

    You are very wise and your words are very true. It's trying to believe that those words are true that have those left behind struggling.

    Shannon, I honestly believe Lola has met her! She is probably helping Juno help you through this. You're going to think I'm nuts, I'm sure, but I felt that my beloved Trixie brought Mabel to us because she knew how devastated we were by her death. I still feel my big beautiful girl with me. Lola will always be with you, watching over and loving you. And she's going to be there to greet you at the bridge someday where you will have a joyous reunion!

    My heart is so heavy. It's sometimes hard to breathe. I wish I could sleep the pain away. I really, really miss her. I cannot express enough how much my heart aches for her.

    Thank you for giving a loving, forever home to a bulldog needing one.
    Because you're human and grieving hard, it may take a 'lil longer to
    bond with Juno. Not to worry, it will happen...one day, you'll realize, it
    has happened, just like that!

    Grieving is a sacred act of deepest love that we do to honor our beloved.
    Do not fear it, Honey but embrace it, it is a journey that is unavoidable.
    You will not lose yourself nor be destroyed by it. Lola rests in peace and
    is completely restored in God's Heaven. I believe we reunite with our loved
    ones.

    Be kind, gentle & understanding of yourself as you would any loved one
    going thru a difficult time. Your heart is wounded and losing your beloved
    Lola IS unbearable, it physically hurts! Longing for her presence rips that
    wound open anew, it feels as if it will never end. There will come a time, the
    pain eases, we adapt...never forgetting or loving less, just continue living as
    we are designed to do so.

    Welcome to EBN, we know how terrible is your loss of Lola, how strange it all
    is right now, nothing normal or good enough and you can't imagine feeling
    better but you will and we will help you thru these awful days & nights. So will
    Juno...NO...she's not Lola and in time, you'll love her for herself and enjoy what
    she brings into your life. May God bring comfort, strength & peace into your heart
    and soon, enjoying life and open fully your heart to Juno. I lift you in prayer to
    Jesus, the Man of Sorrows, who lived & felt it all, as we do in our mortality & flesh.
    Please, cry out to Him, rest in His Love of you, let Him bind your wounds then lay
    them at His feet. Jesus captures every tear, they are sacred to Him...you are His
    Beloved, Shannon and Lola awaits you, running in perfect contentment by His side
    as she does so. Walk your journey, find your laughter & joy again (it will come) and
    let your heart heal...love is never lost only added to...be well again soon, Shannon.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.
