Since we lost Buster last year, he was our couch potato dog.
He had a ramp that he used & would sit in the same spot.
He could see outside from that spot. We recently got new sofas
& MIL got us a beagle pillow to put where his spot would have been.
It's perfect.

these animals into our lives for a short moment of time. they often mean the world to us but to them we are their entire world for thier short lives. perhaps they mean so much to us because of their short brief lives with us.

I lost my little buddy Zola a few weeks ago. I haven't really told anyone because the first 'friend' I told responded with, "What's the big deal, it's just a lizard."
I've had him since I started high school. He was hatched some time in early 2000 and he was with me for 13 of his 15 years so it was incredibly hard to see him go. My boyfriend and I were both a blubbering mess.

that's the cruelest thing someone can say to someone who just lost a pet. Even if you believe that you don't tell your friend what's the big deal is just a .........

I agree David . I still have my very first ball python . I've had him almost 17 years . I would be crushed if something was to happen to him . I think I wouldn't have that friend any more . Because everyone who truly knows me knows my love for my reptiles .

I still have no words to tell how close we were. Since he's gone I am at a loss as to what to do. So I do nothing. I still cannot talk about him without tears, and just walking past a dandelion will bring the tears. I'm not sure I have ever loved an animal the way I did Bob. He was the best companion ever and I miss him every second of every day. King Robert III 1998-2015
I just didn't expect an animal who should have lived 150 yrs or more to die at 17????
We all know the pain of losing a special pet. Sometimes it makes me not want to have any more animals.

Many people don't understand anything nor have feelings for animals. I'm sorry for your loss. Such great pics!

I thought it was horrible how young you lost your Bob. I figured my Scarlett would've been equivalent to being a person in her thirties. And I thought that was bad. Your Bob was so young. To say it was tragic is still not enough.

In response to all of your kind responses, I will say that person wasn't part of my inner circle and has cemented themselves far outside of where they were before. Even my avid hunter redneck friends can be compassionate. Even my ex and parents were upset about Zola's passing. He really was more than a lizard.
We put an offer on a house before he passed and we've been waiting for word, since we are in a rental right now we aren't going to bury him here so he's patiently awaiting a proper burial in our garage freezer.

Tonight I lost my best pal cheddar.

He will forever be in my heart and words can't describe how much he will be missed along with all the other past pets.
He is now reunited with his brother cheese.

I will never forget any of my past pets :( <3
