This is my favourite picture of Dram, my dog who passed away last night. I feel as though I have a gaping hole inside of me right now, but looking at this picture helps me remember just what a wonderful, loving dog he was. The picture was taken just after I'd loaded film into the camera, I hadn't adjusted the light settings, I had no flash loaded, but Dram was so keen to see what I was doing that I started snapping away.

I miss him.

Thank you all for your lovely comments, I will answer each and every one of them, right now it hurts too much, but I love you all.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know I've said it before, but... Take your time, sweetheart. No need to answer anyone right away.

Dram was such a special soul.

You are very welcome, sweetheart. Are you okay? Well, are you as okay as you can be at a time like this?

I'm getting there. Coming home to an empty house tonight was tougher than I thought it would be - but at the same time I was expecting it to be tough. I still find myself looking around expecting to see him stretched out in front of the door like a furry draught excluder. I imagine it'll be a long time before I stop expecting to see him around.

The hardest thing yesterday was actually emptying his water and food bowls. It took me four attempts to actually lift them at all.

I will be fine, I know I will be, and I know it's normal to hurt this much right now - but it doesn't stop the pain.

I understand. My J.R. used to shed like crazy and just seeng his hair on things after he was gone would make me burst into tears. I'm sure there's J.R. fur in some of the boxes we haven't unpacked from California and I know I'll cry when I see it.

Dram has always sounded so wonderful...the stories you've told make me feel like I've actually known him...I wish I had.

Yes it's normal to hurt. But no, you're right, knowing that doesn't make it hurt any less, nor will it. Dram was (is) family. You love him. You miss him.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It feels like losing a close relative of yours. I've been there a few times. *hugs you*

Thank you. You're right, he was more family to me than some of my blood relatives are. I miss him more than I can really say, but he had a good life and I was with him when he died.

Dram was an adorable doggy. It sucks that he's gone, but it's good that your life was blessed with him, no matter how short of a time it was.

He was an absolute sweetheart who always seemed to know how to comfort me and make me smile.

That's a gorgeous pic, I'm so sorry to hear about Dram, I know how much he meant to you.

Did you get my text? I'm here if you need to talk, or just get horribly drunk........

Hey Mara! I'm so sorry to here about your dog Dram. ): (Hugs) I lost my dog Ratti last year at this time. And Dram looked so very much like her. My husband and I got her from the dogpound and we had her until she died last year at the age of thirteen. It kind of felt for both of us like we lost a family member. So I just wanted to say that I'm really sorry for your loss.

Thank you. Drammy was 12 this year and I've had him since he was eight weeks old. He's been so much a part of my life for so long now that it feels like a part of me is missing without him here.

What a gorgous picture. His personality just shines from the photo. I'm smiling just looking at him.

He was such a sweetheart. He always knew when I was down and would always make me smile.
