  1. I am very grateful I came across your stories of Niko. We recently had to put our lab Kendzie to sleep, slightly 3 weeks ago. I knew I would miss her, but didn’t anticipate this adjustment stage. Im due any day with my second child and not having her by me during my last month of pregnancy has been a heartache. She was diagnosed with Diabetes, but towards the end it was suspected to be Cusings. It all happened so fast. I have been going through so many of the things you talked about in your blog. It has helped me understand this is something I shouldn’t feel ashamed of because Im not being strong. My life has changed, from waking up in the morning to her wagging tail to not kissing her each night. My other dog as well has been a basket case. Thank you for sharing your stories as well as the helpful websites. Take care.

    • Heather – Thank you for the kind words. I am so sorry you have lost your Kendzie. Three weeks is not much time, and I imagine you still feel very raw. I’m glad Niko’s site has helped you some. I think it’s important to know you are not alone in grief, and you should not expect yourself to ‘get over it’ in any short amount of time. I still cry for my boy three years later, and I’m sure I always will. However, with time, it does get easier to put one foot in front of the other. Wishing you peace and comfort during your difficult time. – Bettina

  2. Hi Bettina
    I a m happy we have access to such helpful content. We just recently had to say good by to our beloved dog Sunny. I felt free to use one of your poems published on your great website which exactly describes our feelings we have right now for the loss of our 14 year old friend and family member. Thank you for your excellent work and thoughts. Here is the video we created in memory for Sunny.

    I also made link to your website. Maybe we can help some people in their difficult time.
    Globally yours
    Helmut & Monica Ortner
