Beautiful Doggie

My beloved dog of almost 11 years passed away last night.  It was the right decision to put him out of his pain but it was possibly the hardest thing I’ve ever done and I miss him so much.

    I am so truly sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine how hard that was for you. People don’t realise that the loss of a pet is like the loosing a close family member. And what a beautiful dog he was!. My family had a dog for 16 years and loosing her was devastating. We still miss her today.

    Take this time to grieve the loss of your beloved doggie, hold onto the good memories and know that you have been loved unconditionally.

  4. My heart is breaking for you!! 😦 I know you must be hurting so bad… like you said though – he is no longer in pain – but still – I’m so sorry…

    Have you ever heard of the poem the “Rainbow Bridge”? I hope this comforts you somewhat…

    Rainbow Bridge

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
    There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
    There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.

    Condolences on the loss of your beloved dog. It is so very hard to part from them, but I do believe they’ll be waiting for us somewhere, someday.
    On November 4th, I had to put my cat to sleep. She was 15. Through the worst of my depression, that’s the only thing that kept me going; my cats needed me, and I had to get out of bed.
    I have just discovered your blog; you remind me of myself 10 years ago. I look forward to reading more.

    Take care,
