The Light Has Gone Out Of My Life


Eko, my light, died this weekend. The emergency vet did not know what caused my perfectly healthy pup to suddenly collapse. But he is gone and I am shattered. I’ll be back here at some point because there’s so much I need to say and do to honor him, but for right now I just need to hurt.

  1. “I am so sorry for your loss” just doesn’t seem like enough to say about Eko’s death. I found your blog the week you started on your incredible journey with that extraordinary soul. I was so excited to see what you two would do next. I have followed as you grew up together, got married, moved, and adopted Penny. I grieve with you and all of your followers. From my pack to yours, we are sorry for your loss.

  2. Wow! I was just reading your ‘why do you get out of bed?’ blog post and my mind went numb… Confused? What am I reading? Eko? Gone? I am SO sorry for your unexpected loss. I know you only from this, your blog yet am a kindered spirit in DOG. I feel compelled to send my sincerest condolences to you… I give my beloved mexi-mutt an extra hug & light a candle in Eko’s honour. So sorry fellow dog lover… So sorry… Be well.

  3. I am sorry. I cannot stop crying. I hope that in time you feel a little bit healed. Eko was an absolute gem, one of a kind and a beautiful soul. Every day through your writing I loved him more and more. We never will understand why these things happen. We can only hope that our children lived a happy, full life. And yours did. You gave him love, happiness and a good good life.
