heartbroken

i dont know why they call it heartbroken when i feel as the whole of me is also broken :(

My beloved hamster of a year and few months had passed away yesterday, he was very much loved. When my sister broke the news to me my sister i told her no it was impossible, i kissed him goodbye before i went to work. But it was inevitable, since hamsters has 2-3 years life span. i always get scared when they pass that one year mark. i can notice they get tired easily, their furs getting longer. but despite it all i still love them. All pet owners surely will agree on me on this but when you lose a pet it feels as though a part of you get broken as well.

I cant help but admit there are time as a pet owner, i do have my closest-pet, that bond that you cannot describe with your pet. I had that bond again with Ishin ( my recently deceased hamster). I had a major operation last March and Ishin, all though small, helped eased my pain.

I know he is now in hamster heaven. He will be missed.
