My beautiful Angel :(


Recommended Posts

    July 7th my beautiful girl Angel died extremely suddenly, she was 8 years old, healthy, happy and in great shape.

    I am told she had a stroke, it was so sudden, we had just started our walk she played with the neighbors dog for a minute, then a few steps later she started walking funny, I immediately went back to the house, I could tell something wasn't right so we headed for the emergency vet (7pm or so) but she wasn't breathing by the time we got there. The vet said they could not resuscitate her, and like that over the course of 15-20mins she was gone. 

   I'm having a harder time with it today than yesterday, I guess it's setting in that she's really gone. We had such a strong bond, she was my best friend and she meant the world to me. The house just feels so lifeless and quiet. I can't help thinking there was more I could have done to save her. I have horrible thoughts like maybe the vet didn't try hard enough or at all to resuscitate her, maybe if my regular vet were open they would've been able to, and the chain of events just keeps running through my head. I miss her every moment of the day, from when I wake up, when she'd come to my bedside, yawn stretch give me a kiss and ask to go out, to the time I go to bed when she'd try to lay on me cause she could never be close enough. Our weekend hikes, our daily walks, or just sitting outside watching for squirrels. I miss her so much, I thought we had at least 5-8 more years together.

  People just keep saying well at least she went quick and didn't suffer, and that may be true, but she was just too young and healthy. She had a lot more life to live, and I could tell she was fighting for it in her last moments. I just can't believe she's gone.

Dear Members,

We are excited to mention that we are moving to a more new and improved message boards on MONDAY MORNING AUGUST 9th! The boards will be done for a few hours while we are making the conversation. Remember we posted information about this move a month ago. For some of you this might seem a bit sudden,  but when we were reviewing the site we determined the current message board you are using is out of date and the company that designed it is no longer in existence. The good news is this new message board will have new features that have been requested in the past like more fields we can add to your profiles and a chat room up to 20 people at one time. If we find the chat room is bursting at the seams we will add additional room for extra people. All your old posts, private messages and such will be migrated to the new message board. You might have to put up your profile picture again but not sure. The new company will be doing the migration for us. Here is a short list of some of the new features on the board:

- Custom Profile Fields- Users can customize their profile pages by selecting a background color or background image, with tiling options.- Facebook and Twitter Integration- users can respond to multiple posts at once with "mini-quote"- Pinned discussion threads - like welcome to our board etc.- Announcements made across some boards or the entire message board- Search: Users can easily find all content generated by a particular member, by clicking the 'Find Content' button that appears on the main profile page, or in the Mini Profile Popup which can be accessed throughout the board. The results page allows content to be filtered by application, as well whether the member created it or merely participated in it. - Privacy: allows users to sign in anonymously, hiding them from the online users list. Users also have the option to disable personal conversations and user-to-user emails, as well as ignore other users if necessary.

The next exciting piece of news about the new message board is it will have a new domain name of www.grieving.com for search engine optimization purposes. It will still be apart of Beyond Indigo and can be found through www.beyondindigo.com. We will be redirecting your current URL's to this new domain name but we might miss a few. If that is the case simply go back to www.grieving.com or www.beyondindigo.com to find your message board thread. We will try to make the transition as seamless as possible. 

The bottom line is the new board will give us room to grow our community and more options to interact better with each other. 

If you have any questions please direct them to feedback@beyondindigo.com.
