my dog

my dog died today. my dog who was always the sidekick, never the main dog and never seemed to care. my dog who ate out of the catbox every. single. day. my dog who dug for chipmunks, always determined, yet never successful. my dog who loved sleeping under a Christmas tree so much, we started leaving our silver tree up year round for her. my dog that was so sheddy, that to vacuum the living room we had to empty the cannister. TWICE. my dog who was supposed to have an inner ear disorder, but really had tumors. my dog who would lay on anything you left on the floor; a towel, a sock, a plastic tablecloth:

Oh, I am so sorry for you; I truly am. I know what it's like to lose a beloved dog. They become such a huge part of the family. I am sad for you.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. You and your dog are in my thoughts.

Shelley said...

I'm so sorry for your loss. She was a beautiful girl and I know that your family is just heartsick right now. My thoughts are with you all.

Oh, HP, my heart hurts for you. Losing a pet is so hard. Our family has lost 3 in the past 4 years and we're still heartbroken over it. Sending you and Mr. P big hugs.

DAVs said...

Oh HP. I'm so so sorry. Just really sorry.

I am so so sorry to hear this. :( Pets are family and losing them is so painful. I am sending big hugs and warm thoughts your way.

Jane said...

I'm so so so sorry to hear this. My peace be with your dog now.

Astarte said...

Oh, I am *so* sorry.

I'll bet you anything he's in doggie heaven right now, chasing our Tyler and Cyrus around a field, digging for chipmunks and rolling in poop. I firmly believe that when we die, all our former pets are there waiting for us, because it wouldn't be heaven if my dogs aren't there, too.

My heart is breaking for you. 15 years is a good long life for a good dog, but not nearly long enough. Godspeed, Nala...

grace said...

I'm so sorry, Hotch. *hug* They really have no idea how loved they are, do they?

tara said...

My heart is completely and totally broken for you. I am so sorry.

Oh my gosh, I'm so sorry to hear that! It's so hard to lose a pet, especially so unexpectedly. :( But it sounds like she was really, truly loved, and I bet she knew that. Take care, Hotch.

I'm so, so sorry. I started tearing up when I read this--my kitties are almost 10 and I know how much pets are part of our lives and hearts. Take it easy, my thoughts are with you & your family.

Oh, HP! I'm very sorry. :(

Swistle said...

I am so sorry.

chezjulie said...

I'm so sorry. She sounds like she was a wonderful, sweet, and funny dog. I know you will miss her very much. It is one of the cruelties of life that our beloved friends can't be with us as long as we want them to.

Fatinah said...

oh, my word! I'm so very sorry!!

Linda said...

I, like the others, am so sorry for your loss! THe laying on ANYTHING you put on the floor made me grin. My dogs do that too! Hang in there, I know it's heart breaking.

SoMi's Nilsa said...

LiLu said...

Oh, I'm so sorry... I think we all know just how painful it is to lose a beloved family pet. I was 15 when my cat Jake was hit by a car, and I still remember it like it was yesterday- every second of it, and I still miss him.

Again, I am so, SO sorry, love. My heart goes out to you.
