I have only wonderful memories



He sits and begs; he gives a paw
He is, as you can see,
the finest dog you ever saw
and he belonged to me.


I'll talk to you in the comments. :)

Katherine said...

I don't want to hear past tense!! Please tell me Huck is okay. The thought makes my heart break. I'm praying for all of you!! Talk to me....

Kathy said...

Yes, I have a hard time even writing it. 11.5 wonderful years of our lives with the sweetest dog ever. Unconfirmed but from symptoms a brain tumor. His jaws locked up again. THe neurologist said a brain tumor or a Neuropathy. I cannot wait to get his ashes tomorrow. I miss him , we are all as you can imagine sad. There are waves of peacefulness however. Im still pretending he's here when I just have to.

I emailed you----sending you hugs through cyberspace

I am all alone in my house, missing my dog. We put her down on Saturday. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

We put her in the back yard, where she can see the back door.

Oh my, this is hard. I recognize we have done the right thing, but it doesn't make us any less lonely. It freaks me out that no one's stretched out on the couch, that there's only floor tile where the bowls used to be, and it pisses me off that I still have dog hair to vacuum up but I have no dog to make it ok.

I'll be your dog-grief buddy.

Oh no, Kathy!!!! I'm crying as I type this. I'm so so so sorry. I wish I could be with you to give you a hug in person. I know Huck is in a better place and feeling fabulous - except his is sad that he isn't "with" you any more. He is still with you though, just in a different way.

Love and hugs from all of us!

Kathryn said...

So painful to read, but what a great dog Huck was! Love you, Bouf

Oh Kathy. My heart aches right now. We were just talking about Huck at lunch. Jessie-girl is in her room now crying and thinking of you all. Continuing to lift your family in prayer.

Marguerite said...

Sympathy. It's heartbreaking to lose a much loved furbaby. I'm so sorry.

Patt said...

I am so very sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our prayers. They are such wonderful creatures that God created. I always pray, Dear Lord, Please let me be the person my dog thinks I am.

Elaine said...

Kathy, like all your other pretend friends, I am very sorry to hear the news. I remember the photo shortly after I 'met" you of Huck looking through your sock blockers.

We are all thinking of you.

Pat K said...

Such a good, good dog. Many condolences to you. I will miss seeing him grace the pages of your blog.

Alyssa said...

Your loss is so heartbreaking. There is no magic easy way to lose a pet, but I'm sure you can take comfort in the knowledge that Huck loved you and you gave him an awesome life.

When I lost my dear cat Kilby a friend wrote to me the following quote,“I have this feeling there’s one more star up in the sky tonight. And even though it’s far away, its brightness and warmth still reach us here to make the night a little less dark”

Emily said...

I am so sad for your loss. Much love from your pretend friend.

Lupie said...

I am so sorry. My heart feels your pain and my eyes fill with tears for you.

Donna Boucher said...

Such a good boy.

I am sorry to hear your sad news.

Ling said...

DrChopSuey said...

Oh no, I'm so sorry hun. Big hugs for you!

Debra in NC said...

Oh, I am so very sorry over the loss of your dear beautiful Huck! Losing a furry family member is never easy, and even though we sometimes have to make that final decision for them, it's one truely made from our hearts.

Please, during this time of grieving, please remember to take care of yourself. Take time to feel whatever it is that you are feeling, in that moment.

((((((((((Hugs))))))))))

I am so sorry. I totally understand what you're feeling. My poor boy bloated on Wednesay - but I got him to the vet on time. g

Lynne said...

Kathy B, somehow, I missed that Huck is gone. I am so sorry that you lost such a good friend. When Maggie died a few years ago, I told the vet that I always wished that I could be the kind of person my dog thought I was. I know that you know what I mean....Huck had the best life even on your bad days. So sorry.
