For the Love of a dog

Jess 12/26/99-03/06/13
 

 
"If you have a dog, you will most likely outlive it, to get a dog is to open yourself to profound joy, and prospectively, to equally profound sadness" -- M Garber
 
My sadness runs deep, I will miss this wonderfully loyal dog. She was everything a family dog should be and more.  Goodbye my sweet girl.

As someone who had the pleasure of meeting Jesse, I know she will be missed. She was a sweet dog.

So sorry to hear of Jess's passing. Thank God for your wonderful memories, though I know you're hurting. That vulnerability we open up to does allow more love but also more intense grief, as your opening quote says. Hope you can feel the love and hugs we're sending your way.

So sorry for your loss Nataly! We have lost three of our babies in the past 3 years, so I can empathize with you. She looks like she was a lovely and sweet girl.

Oh Nataly, I know this deep sadness you are feeling today. We lost our Haley several years ago and I still think of her often. When we lost her I found this site http://www.petloss.com/rainbowbridge.htm it brought me comfort. I hope it will for you as well. Take time to grieve and remember all those times she made you smile. {{hugs}}

Some animals, like some men, leave a trail of glory behind them. They give their spirit to the place where they have lived, and remain forever a part of the rocks and streams and the wind and sky. ~ Marguerite Henry

So sorry for your loss.

So very sorry for your loss. They all take a little piece of us with them when they leave don't they? We have lost 3 of our wonderful companions in the last 7 years. Courtney (13 yrs old), Holiday (17 yrs. old) and 7 months ago Lady Mae (14 yrs. old) I miss them all every day although we now have Bailey (will be 4 in May), Jack (his brother will be 4 in May) and Max (9 months). I would not trade a day with any of them. I will be praying for you and your family as you work through this heartbreaking time.
Hugs
