Brickette:  I am so sorry for your loss. It is obvious how much you cared for Clyde. It is easy to tell from the photos that he was a happy guy and had a peaceful, wonderful life. I am sure he knew how much he was loved.

I am so sorry, I want to reach through the computer and give you a hug. I’m so familiar with the pain of losing a pet, it is the hardest thing I have yet to experience. I’m so sorry you didn’t get to say goodbye, but your boy knew that you loved him! Take comfort in the great years you had together. 

Take a few days to grieve. Cry, laugh, eat a tub of ice cream. Sending positive thoughts your way <3

Brickette:  I am so sorry for your loss. My heart broke reading your story. My dog is my baby too so I can’t imagine what you are going through. Know that even if your last words to him weren’t what you would have ideally wanted, what he knew was the unconditional love from you and your SO. Lots of hugs.

Oh I am so so so sorry for your loss- Clyde was such a cutie, and it looks like he definitely knew how much you loved him! Grab some wine, chocolate, and ice cream and take some time to grieve. Big hugs.

My heart broke reading your story, and then when I saw it was a pittie I really started to cry.  They’re amazing dogs (I have my Cashmere, a pit/boxer mix).  Trust me when I say they’re incredibly intelligent, and he felt your love his whole life.  For bully breeds who are so often misunderstood and mistreated, it’s heartwarming to see how much you loved and cared for your pup.


Please give yourself time to grieve and cry.  <3

I lost my cat almost 2 months ago. It still hurts so much to think about. It doesn’t get easier, and nothing anyone can say will truly be of comfort, but you know in your heart you gave him a great life.

I’m so sorry for your loss.

I am truly so sorry and sad for both of you.  I have tears rolling down my cheek.  Four legged children are loved just the same as two logged children.  I’m glad you have his ashes.  In time you will find comfort knowing you still have him with you.   I hope you find peace and comfort in your hearts and forgive yourself as well.

Poor doggy, I’m so sorry for your loss.

Try to gain comfort from the knowledge that he had a wonderful, happy life with you and at least he went quickly. I’ve seen a lot of animals really suffer as their body gets old and starts to break down and aside from some recent arthritis he never had to go through that. I know somewhere he is looking down on you with love.

I totally empathize. I’m sorry you lost your pet, especially in a tragic way and while you were gone. He looks like he lived to a ripe age, happy and shown the love every dog deserves. Take the time to remember him, grieve and heal. He will always be a part of you. *hugs*

I’m so sorry for your loss. My 12 year old toy poodle Jane was put to sleep recently from complications from an enlarged heart. Though she lived to almost 13 years, I still feel like she had so much life left in her. 

We have a new puppy now, as of last Sunday, but I will always miss Jane. I feel that her presence is still here, and weirdly enough, our puppy Francesca seems to notice (stop and stare at nothing and then back up slowly as if she’s afraid) and bark at nothing. I’ve heard dogs can detect spirits, but I never believed until I saw that. 

Again, I’m so sorry for your loss and I wish all the best to you and your family.
