I'm so sorry for your loss!

Yes I know that type of pain all to well. I've lost two dogs, the first completely unexpectedly, and the other from extreme old age. The first hurt the worse because it was way to sudden and completely unexpected, and I expect that's what you are going through now with the loss of Harley. Please know that it does get easier to bear, the pain eases, and you'll be able to focus on the good memories with a smile and laugh rather then tears. Give yourself as much time as you need to mourn his loss, and please know that we are here if you need a shoulder to cry on or to share memories.

Loss of a family member, pretty sure we've all been there. Sounds like your pup had a wonderful life, and you can rest easy that you kept him going to the end.

Sorry to hear. They say time heals all wounds, some dogs i've never gotten over.

I am so sorry you are hurting but can you at least be kind to yourself ?.... Knowing you gave him the best of the best in caring and loving him. Right now there is a big ugly hole in your heart, and you feel that nothing will heal it..........but your sweet Harley left that hole so he could leave room for the next guy, because he would like you to smile again..........someday.

Dogs In Heaven?
An old man and his dog were walking down this dirt road with fences on both sides, they came to a gate in the fence and looked in, it was nice grassy, woody areas, just what a 'huntin' dog and man would like, but, it had a sign saying 'no trespassing' so they walked on. They came to a beautiful gate with a person in white robes standing there. "Welcome to Heaven" he said. The old man was happy and started in with his dog following him. The gatekeeper stopped him. "Dogs aren't allowed, I'm sorry but he can't come with you."

"What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs? If he can't come in, then I will stay out with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life, I can't desert him now."

"Suit yourself, but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his area, he'll promise you anything, but the dog can't go there either. If you won't leave the dog, you'll spend Eternity on this road."

So the old man and dog went on. They came to a rundown fence with a gap in it, no gate, just a hole. Another old man was inside. "S'cuse me Sir, my dog and I are getting mighty tired, mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?"

"Of course, there's some cold water under that tree over there. Make yourselves comfortable"

"You're sure my dog can come in? The man down the road said dogs weren't allowed anywhere."

"Would you come in if you had to leave the dog?"

"No sir, that's why I didn't go to Heaven, he said the dog couldn't come in.
We'll be spending Eternity on this road, and a glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now. But, I won't come in if my buddy here can't come too, and that's final."

The man smiled a big smile and said "Welcome to Heaven."

"You mean this is Heaven? Dogs ARE allowed? How come that fellow down the road said they weren't?"

"That was the Devil and he gets all the people who are willing to give up a life long companion for a comfortable place to stay. They soon find out their mistake, but then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle people stay there. GOD wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, HE created them to be man's companions in life, why would he separate them in death?"
(Based on the "Twilight Zone" episode "The Hunt" written by Earl Hamner Jr.)

Sorry about your loss. Our dogs become apart of our family and when it's their time to go it's very hard to deal with. It's nice to know your dog was so loved. That dog must've been so happy to have you. Time will heal your wounds of this but we never forget our dogs. They bring so much joy to our lives.
