My Sweet Boy

Reggie was my shadow and never let me out of his sight. I miss him desperately…

Candles left in memory of Reggie

  1. Mom says:

    It’s a little over 9 months since we lost you, and I still miss you desperately. I keep trying to fill the hole in my heart with memories of you, but the pain is still there. Love you so very much… ? ? ?

    • Donna says:

      Hello Susie! I’m Donna, “mom” of the other Reggie here at Sheltie Angels. Sending you many hugs. <3 It really is so hard. He's such a handsome boy. Try to remember all the joy he brought you and all the other humans! Thank him for living so long, for being so cute, for all the fun things you did together. You'll find, in time, gratitude may overcome grief. And when your heart is ready you'll do it all over again with a new pup. You'll see.

      • Susie says:

        Hi Donna,
        Thank you for your kind, comforting words. I’m sure a time will come when we’ll be ready to welcome a new pup into our homes. But, for now, it’s too soon. We do have wonderful memories and cherish them.

        • Donna says:

          I hear you there Susie! It’s over a year and a half for me and I think I’m finally ready for a new pup. I don’t understand people who immediately rush out and get a new dog within weeks, sometimes just days after their beloved old one dies . . . but some do! It’s a way of avoiding the pain, maybe. I’m glad we have this forum to comfort each other! No “rebound pups” for us. Hugs xoxox

          • Susie says:

            Yes, I agree, Donna. I have never understood those able to “replace” their beloved dog with a new one so quickly. If/when we are ready; we will be looking for a rescue Sheltie. We are senior citizens and don’t quite have the energy for a pup again. So, we’ll try to find a senior Sheltie rescue to welcome into our hearts.

  2. Paige Thomas says:

    What a precious face . . . my heart goes out to you. There is definitely a big hole nothing else can fill. We lost our Buddy last week, and his brother is lonely without him, as are we. Trying hard to cherish his life and memories. Blessings and prayers for you as well!

    • SJ says:

      I am so sorry for your loss of Buddy. I can only imagine how lonely you and his brother are without his love and companionship. Thoughts and prayers to you…

  3. Sandy Bosnakis says:

    So very sorry for you loss!

  4. SJ says:

    It was a month yesterday since you left us – still miss you every minute of every day…

  5. Mom says:

    I miss you every day, Reggie. You left a big hole in my heart…
