Can't Make It Better

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Today was the first time I took my dogs to be groomed since my Billy died. It was and is really hard. I knew the others were more anxious than usual and when the groomer saw me I cried. I came home and watered the flowers particularly those around Billy's grave. I spoke to him but frankly it didn't help. Some things can't be made better.

This is clear the Shelters Weekend. As hard as the loss is at least I know that Billy was happy with me and I loved him dearly. So many wonderful dogs and cats die in shelters waiting for a person who never comes. Do yourself a favor and adopt a pet who will enhance your life.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Sheila,

On occasion, Ron and I still talk about the creatures we had in our lives.  They are part of the mosaic of our memories.  You walked your talk in adopting Billy!  A

Sheila I ran into a lady with a little shitsu just like the little guy we had for 18 years.  Of course that brought up lots of good memories and stories that evening. Hard to lose little fur babies....but glad we can give them a good home too. He was a rescue as well and such a cutie. His name was Wookie.

Sheila Anderson - You can't ignore the fact that you loved your little Billy or deny that his unconditional love was something you needed. You were meant to be together and he was as happy being a part of your life as you were his. Let's hope the shelters will be cleared out by people who love them as much as you loved Billy.

Hi Sheila- we don't forget our loved ones overnight, do we?  In time you will still have wonderful memories of Billy with hopefully less heartache.

Time is the only element I know of that seems to make grief better.  Give it time!

Hi Sheila,
I was just talking to my Max this morning.  I do that often.  For me, it is easier because, as you said:
"I know that Billy (Max) was happy with me and I loved him dearly."

That ache in your heart means you had a tremendous love.  I'm sure you'll have another Anderson pup to share it with when you get some distance from the loss.  You are too kind hearted to not give another dog a home in the future.
