I am hanging in there and working things out one at a time. My biggest concern now is to find affordable housing and that will probably mean finding a home for Pyxle since there are almost no rentals that allow dogs. It is difficult to give up my other loving companion and I find myself looking for a miracle that will let her stay with me.

I miss Bob terribly, but am relieved that his passing was gentle and his wish to die at home with me was fulfilled. The Hospice folks were invaluable in making that happen. We could not have made it through the past two months without them.

Sharon, I know that you lost your husband and have gone on living. Your strength is an inspiration. Group hug

Nancy, I went back and reread that spotlight. I smiled as it reminded me of how Bob always encouraged me to do things and how proud he was of my every effort.

Zuzu, yes it was golden advice. He always put me first.

Sometimes, Zany, you have to reach pretty far down to find that strength, but surprisingly, there's usually enough to get you through the rough spots. You will find it when you need it, that's for sure.

Prayers most certainly that you will be able to find that affordable home and keep Pyxle with you.

It is so good to see you back online. I had a real flash back when you mentioned giving up your beloved companion dog at this time when you need a live, breathing thing at your side to share your thoughts with. When I was left alone with my son still home, who was a teen at the time, a dog and very little money, I made up my mind nothing was going to take either of them from me come hell or high water. That is when your strength really goes into high gear. Your determination and strength will take over and you will do what is best for you and your family. I found a place that took both kids and dogs and we all were able to move on to our new will find the way to do what you have to do. Just remember miracles do happen. Sometimes it just takes longer. We love you.

Gentle hugs for you, and of course lots of prayers. I believe there is a place that you will find for yourself and your furry friend. God knows about these things!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Sorry for your loss Zanymuse,
When I lost my husband 2 years ago, I emailed his obituary and photo to myself; I also created a memorial for him on 'Find A Grave'. I re-visit these as often as needed.

As for giving up your pet at a time like this, please don't make a hasty decision. Please, post notices wherever you can (church, rental agencies, local real estate people, FreeCycle, etc.) asking for an affordable rental which allows pets.

I prayed for someone to keep me company in my lonely days and a little brown dog jumped into my car. He's is a fat, stubborn opinionated dog, he hates to get up early and has bad breath at times - and yes, he even snores most nights...but it's a familiar noise.

We are all here for you. Stay strong.

Excellent advice, Greene, straight from the heart.
Your words are beautifully soothing, even for me.

greene, I appreciate the advice. I will definitely follow it and exhaust all possibilities before I give Pyxle up. She has been my comfort and listener this past week. I could not have gotten any sleep or peace of spirit without her Agape love surrounding me.

I am trying to walk a tight line between making hasty decisions and putting things off until the situation is critical.
