I wish I had the words to comfort you. Reading about Duke's passing has me so very sad. Perhaps this poem will comfort you. When I lost my first dog this was passed on to me. And each beautiful dog that has touched my life I cry all over again for their losses.
Sad for your loss.

In my good death, I will find myself
waist deep in high summer grass...
The humming shock of golden life,
and I will hear them before I see them
and know right away
who is bounding across the field to meet me...
All my dogs will come then,
their wet noses bumping against my palms,
their hot, faithful tongues,
their eyes so young and shiny again...
The wiry scruff of their fur,
the unspeakeable softness of their bellies,
their velvet ears against my cheeks.
I will bend to them, my face covered with their kisses
my hands full of them...
In the grass, I will let them knock me down.

-Dalia Sheven

It still makes me cry. May your memories of Duke help you to know you will see him again. For I can not believe that anything so pure of love and joy can be truly gone forever.

I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give
unconditional love. For me they are the role model for
being alive.

You have to love a Boxer to know their human traits. I tell people all the that they are human but I know they don't get it. It's a dreadful loss and I have said more than once that it hurt me more than some of my actual human never goes away. Honestly, the only thing that gave my heart any relief was to bring home a new baby. Each time I lost one, I swore I was never getting another one. Within two months of each, we had a new wiggle butt! The house just isn't the same without them......

So sorry! We lost or English Bulldog 4 years ago her ashes sat on my buffet that whole time. We planted a tree and mixed her ashes in with some compost, it's called s spirit tree. So I still get to see her live on and grow. It has helped a lot. So take your time to grieve and maybe plant a tree when it is time! But don't be afraid to cry and soon you will start to remember the good times.
I still can't go into that room at the vets office. It does get easier, I promise!
The best things in life are unseen, that's why we close our eyes when we sleep, kiss and dream.
