Tonight is a tough one! Don’t feel like drinking, just FEEL! Our Louie-road dog, EVERYTHING FUR KID, has lost his battle with Congenital Heart Failure. Last night he was coughing uncontrollably, and couldn’t catch his breath. We decided he was suffering and asked God to help us take him…although he needed assistance from the DR, he is in no more pain. Love to you all, and that’s all I got!! DO NOT DRINK NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!!!!!! AND..if you are accused of it… oh well…what do you expect. It was your past behavior!! HUGS AND LOVE TO ALL!!!
Rest in Peace Sweet Louie!!

  1. Ah! Such as pall has come over me. 😦

    I heard the other day that all little doggies go to heaven. 🙂
    I can’t believe how this this has changed my feeling and attitude towards the one I love, my Daisy Mae.

    Thinking thoughts of comfort for you SMB.
    Had a good step study mtg last evening. STEP 11, I was reminded about the self inventory of looking at each day, where was I selfish, angry fearful, disturbed and etc. As I get older, w bifocals and etc, I have more impatient days than I wish. So it was a good meeting. Grateful for aa.

  3. Here’s a fond salute to Louie and his two legged friends to whom he means so much; may the treasure of days passed with him linger and the love between all continue to warm.
    I feel your loss and wish you lightness.
    Grateful for the Gift

  4. Dear Bonnie

    I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers. I don’t know what I would do if I loss my Luger. I pray that I wont take a drink. I have not been writing but I have been reading everyone’s shares and it helps me so much every day. I also started a new meeting about a month ago that I have been attending six days a week. It is at 5:30 so I go right after work. No excuses for being too tired, etc. I feel I can finally share without being judged. I thank G*d and you all for another day sober.


  5. Bonnie,
    Just remember that Louie will always be in your heart. Think of all the happiness, joy and warmth he brought into your life. I believe he even helped you stay sober! Dogs give love and also like to receive love. Thanks for sending your thoughts at a difficult time. You were able to communicate your feelings without taking a drink. Louie is very proud of you!

  6. Prayers out to you Sister, family, and your other fur babies,
    The loss of a pet can bring more pain than a loved one. This rang true and loud from the untimely death of my best and only friend Treffer’s when I retired from the Army. It led me to revisit the loss of my battle buddies that I didn’t grieve for in the Army. It was explained to me that God knows each of us and the best way(s) to approach us to teach us His message. This is how my Creator got my attention. This is how I came to begin a relationship with Him.

    Stay close and warm with Him
    Stay the path, no matter what!!!!!!!!

    Let nothing disturb you,
    Let nothing frighten you,
    All things are passing away:
    God never changes.
    Patience obtains all things
    Whoever has God lacks nothing;
    God alone suffices.

    — St. Teresa of Avila

    • How did you know Clay? I was born on the feast of St Teresa! She’s my girl!! Hugs to you and thank you always for your comforting words! And to all of you at This24…
      I am blessed because of you!!

  7. Sorry for your loss. One loss reminds me of others and makes life especially sad. People will accuse us of drinking during bad times. I remind myself that it is more about them and their fears than it is about my current behavior.
