Carly's Story

May 15

Hello. Well, today is a very hard day for my family…it’s Carly’s 8th birthday. We are still struggling at home, because she is literally everywhere. Still expect her to come hopping up to meet me when I get home. Still not used to holding a food bowl twice a day, I actually had the chair removed from the kitchen where I used to sit and hold her bowl for her. I didn’t want to look at it. Going to bed is so hard as well…she always slept right beside me, and I would hold her and rub her belly. Every time I stopped, she would move her leg as to say “keep going mom!” I haven’t been able to look up at the hill where she used to sit, and my husband has such a hard time mowing up there. I know it’s an adjustment, it’s life changing.  We still struggle every day, tears still fall every day. Our other dog seems to be slowly adjusting, although we can tell she is missing her too. I just wish that we could have had more time. Life is not fair. To give that horrible disease to an innocent animal who did nothing wrong but love us unconditionally and bring joy to us every day! I will never understand….

    I usually do not leave a great deal of remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up here First Birthday at the Rainbow Bridge : Carly's
    Story. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind.
    Could it be simply me or does it seem like some of these
    remarks come across like they are left by brain dead individuals?
    😛 And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything
    fresh you have to post. Could you list of all of your shared pages like your
    linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    The grieving process is a ruff one during that first year, and nobody can blame you for feeling the way that you do. Don’t worry about following any timeline or thinking you “should” feel differently right now. Follow your heart and in time, Carly will make sure that the smiles happen before the heartache.

    {{{hugs}}} and hoppy birthday in heaven to your sweet girl.

    What a beautiful tribute and an honest reflection on just how very hard this journey is. I love that you said ” To give that horrible disease to an innocent animal who did nothing wrong…” I’ve often said to my various vets, “…but ( CharlieBear/EmmaRose) has/have done everything right…” Which is what makes all of this so very difficult and for which there is no answer. The fact that Carley is everywhere shows how present she is and how very much she loves you still. Peace and blessings during this difficult time.

    Happy Birthday sweet Carly – it is obvious how much you love and miss her. What a beautiful girl! I hope that your fond memories will soon eclipse the painful ones. I’m so truly sorry for your loss and wish healing for your hearts. You will never forget her but hopefully the pain will ease. With much love- Amy & Rusty

    I know how hard these “firsts” are. That void they leave us with is indeed hard to navigate. Sending you hugs and healing peace. Carley will remembered here always. And you’re right we will never understand why………cancer is ugly and I truly hate it!
