My baby doggie passed away today.

  1. I'm just so sad, we got home from house hunting last night and my boy ( German Shep. " Hooch") sat with me all night while I was here talking to you guys. Then about 0330hrs he got up, gave me a kiss goodnight and walked out the door. When we got up this morning we found him streached out under the mangoe tree, gone.
    He was the best dog, when the boys were little he would sit under their windows, waiting for them to get up, or make a sound then come over to let me know they were up. They dressed him in all sorts of weird things, played oh so gently with them. Could hear hubbys car and give me a five minute warning! He was just so cool. He always stood between me and any-one who came to the front door. We got him when the eldest was born, ten years ago, all feet and no co-ordination! LOL!! Grew up into the best friend the boys ever had.
    He's still sleeping under the mangoe tree, " Tread softly for here lies our beloved pet"

    I'm so sorry for your loss. He was truly one of the family (our cats think they are human, sounds like he did too). What a lot of joy pets bring to us, and it's so sad to lose one. Again, my condolences. -- D

    I only wish I could hug you in person for I understand your pain. On Nov. 9th it will be one year since I lost my gramma doggie, she was 16 and the joy of my heart. I shed tears with you, pershaps our little ones will meet across the rainbow bridge.

    ((((( Aussie ))))) I am so sorry,,, I know what you are going through and it is as if you lost a family member,,, I had to have my baby 'girl' put to sleep two years ago in May,,,, I still miss her so bad,,,, she was 8,,, having kidney failure,,,,,

    We have two new daughters now,,,,, they are great ,,,, I love them,,, but still have this huge hole in my heart where "nikki" was,,,,

    My 'girls' now,,, I love them for the dogs / personalities they are,,, but so can't replace the first ,,,,,,

    Thoughts are with you ~kitamoon
