Here is my Panzer boy.  He would have loved to be friends with your Bailey Boo.  Since he was a shelter pup he wants to be friends with alllll dogs, whether they like it or not πŸ˜‰  Don’t know what I’d do without him, so I feel your loss of Bailey.  What a beautiful pup.  She was lucky to have a wonderful owner that loved her so as so many animals are not so lucky.


“The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make
a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you,
but he will make a fool of himself too.”

I didn’t have a puppy, but a bunny. He died a few years ago. He was the best. He liked to follow me around and if I stood still, he’d hop around me in circles. πŸ™‚ That’s him eating snacks. LOL I know it’s not the same, but I know how it is to lose a pet. I’m so sorry.

I’m so sorry about your baby. You have to remember that you gave her the best life possible– she loved you just as much as you loved her and the kindest thing and the responsible thing to do as a pet owner is be able to make a kind choice for htem when they are sick and hurting. Its such a hard choice, but sometimes it’s necessary.

I had to put my sweet persian kitty to sleep 2 years ago and I still miss him. I cried for days– felt like I had lost a family member. This poem, called The Rainbow Bridge, was on a card that my vet sent me a few days later. It brought me a lot of comfort– and still makes me tear up today! I hope you find comfort in this time–


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….

Hugs to you and I’m so sorry for the loss of Bailey Boo.  What a precious furbaby.

I know that when I lose my eldest dog, I will honor him by going to adopt a rescue.  I have a full blooded rescue dog (my wacky Wyatt) who is a havanese and a cutie pie.  He’s full of well…life!  And always fun.

Giving to a furry friend who needs you more than you need them is a blessing.  Or maybe if your heart isn’t ready to adopt there is some way of donating to a rescue society in Haiti for pets?  i have heard of bestfriends.org giving aid to them.

I’m so sorry!! This post and all the fantastic responses totally made me tear up. We had to put down my first dog almost a year ago, and it was just awful. She was not feeling well at all though so we know it was for the best.. and for the last 2 months she was eating steak and chicken and “real people” food (wouldn’t eat anything else), so she was pretty happy πŸ™‚ 

Us having fun πŸ™‚

One of her favorite pastimes was asking to go out, walking around for 4 minutes, then coming back and asking to come in.. only to pretend like she hadn’t done so and ignoring us.

Aww… i am so sorry. I love your story of her jumping on you when you would come home Smile she sounds like she was the most loved dog!!

In honor of Bailey Boo I have pictures of my Coco. A funny story: The first night i had her she cried in her little bed so i put her in bed between me and my husband  and in the middle of the night i woke up and couldnt find her so i looked and looked and she was inbetween our two pillows and the only thing i could see was her little white tail sticking out. i left her there and ever since then she has been fine sleeping in her own bed.

Oh my goodness, I’m getting upset for you just reading your post. I’m so sorry. I’m lucky enough that I’ve never had to deal with a pet’s death (well, other than goldfish, and I actually was pretty depressed about even that) and I know I’ll be an absolute wreck.

Here are our babies.
