Don't know if I will ever get over her.

This is just heartbreaking to read, Ianv. I am so sorry for your loss.
The photo you shared of Marley shows the quality life she/he had. Hang on to those memories, as tight as you can, and know that Marley misses you too.

~peace to your heart


I miss Zara Rose just about every day, esp when I look into big brown eyes of other pups. She was a doggie I knew and cared for for nearly 15 years. Though Lizzie and Jack are wonderful new friends, they aren't Zara Rose... she was my buddy and quite special.

^^^ Zara had most likely just farted. She had farting "issues".

I miss her farts. :)

Thanks for the kind thoughts and words from everyone. I always avoided reading this post to stop my mind from wandering to the fact that one day, she would be gone. It is really nice to see how many people here love and take good care of their dogs. Too bad that isn't necessarily the case everywhere.

After all of the health problems he endured (and continues to battle) in 2012 I really didn't think he'd live to see 2013, yet there he is snoozing by my feet as I type this. I don't let a day go by without making sure he's aware of how much he's loved.

hey there say, nilepoc... my patty ann marie is part whippet, and part shar-pei (loose wrinkle skin, black tongue/mouth and all) and part lab, it is thought, as well--that showed more, when she was younger...

she has filled out, since we have not had our usual walks at this new house... she is fast, and looks so crazy fun, she does her 'whippet run'...

edit:
ianv, and all:
oh my, very sorry as to the loss of your dear dogs that have
passed on over, :(

patty ann marie isa wonderful fun dog, but she is not that
'sleep with loving' and snuggle up type dog...
for those that have those kind of dogs, you miss them
twice as much, being that you can ALMOST still FEEL them
near you... :( along with the sad memories of all the
fun: which my patty ann marie, DOES give...


hugs to you all, during these sad doggie moments..

10 years ago today, I (we) had to put down one of the kindest animals I've ever had, Bamboozle, due to Lupus. Certainly one of the toughest days of my life.

I foster for Golden Gate Lab Rescue and Buddy is my newest foster. He was a stray in Bakersfield but had been chipped and neutered. When owners were tracked down they didn't want him back and gave no backstory. It breaks m heart when I pick up these Labs that are so skinny and have asked for so little and give so much.

He's a joy and will probably be adopted within the week after I get a chance to assess him. So far he is just wonderful...but we haven't done the "cat" test yet. My first plan is to beef him up!

Loki wishes to know more about this (ahem!) "cat" test. Heh heh.

Does my cat disappear and become stealth like around my home or do they have a face off and tolerate each other. They used to have a "crash test dummy" cat at the vet, that was sorta liked a potted plant, partially blind, gimpy and could give a sheeet. They used to walk the incoming dogs by it to see their reaction. But he died of old age. So now we have to use our own cats as THE TEST. That way we can tell if they can go to a home with cats, or NO WAY.

Now ya know....no cats were injured in the making of this movie....but some have been royally pissed off.

As someone who live close to and works in Bako, I can attest to the often low-life nature of its inhabitants. There are soooo many unattended dogs in Kern County. Drives me crazy. Bunch o' creeptards down here, I'm sorry to say. Of course, some great folks, too, but it seems we have more than our share of the losers.
