Once again my life is sad
as another of my pets has left
to join with Richie up in the sky
where all dogs go when they die
this time Pete my fat little friend
succumbed to heartworm of years gone by
and even though he had the best care
his poor little heart just could not fly
I buried him beside the pond
next to Richie his bestest friend
and the two in life with such a strong bond
live in Doggie Heaven where joy never ends.
People who don’t have pets can’t understand what a space it leaves in your heart when they’re suddenly gone. Petey had a very happy 18 months with you and the other doggies.
Thanks. Mikey is helping a lot…
Dad, really really sorry to hear about Pete, the two of them are going to have so much fun again and I’m sure going to get up to plenty of mischief as well.
Thinking of you
Thanks for the sympathies. He was a sweet little guy.
I know how it feels when you lose a pet.I lost mine 2years ago.The thought yet devastates me.
The best cure that I have found over the many years of having dogs and outliving them all, is to get another dog. Not to replace but to fill the void left by the one that you have just lost
You have my deepest sympathies. Like a lifeboat in time, may he rest gently in your heart and your memories.
Very nicely put and Thank You
Gosh, this is so very sad. It sounds like Pete was a great dog.
He was a funny little fellow and is sorely missed.
Thank you for your kind words. He really was.
I am so very sorry for your loss Francis. You have amazing memories left from your precious friend Pete. He was such a handsome little dog 🙂
On the long road that makes up our lives, all we have are memories.
It is hard to click the ‘Like’ button for such sorrowful news.
Yes, that’s a very good point but it does show support in difficult times.
Yes, you have mine.
My thanks to you and others that have empathy for those that lose the ones they love including their pets.
You have our heartfelt sympathy, Francis. We realize, all too well, what it is like.
From Walt Whitman:
“To die is different from what anyone supposed, and luckier.”
Whitman said it right. Life can be very cruel.
That is not, i don’t feel, what he meant. Whitman, though he suffered a great deal, was madly in love with life. He is merely saying that death is not what anyone has conceived it to be.
I have no conception of death. Do you? The how’s and when’s of when we die are physical. Is there a spiritual side?
I think i realize what happens. However, it is for each individual to discover… and not be told. I feel that the sacred exists, but waiting for death to discover it is not going to bear fruit.
Condolences on your loss.
Thank you. Very much appreciated.
I had so many dogs who died everytime I come home for a holiday from living overseas. It seems they are waiting for me before they sign off. Sad indeed and it pinch my heart everytime I remember each of them who waited patiently for me. I can understand your sadness.
The dogs in our lives are so important just as much to us as we are to them. Thanks for commenting
It is hard indeed to lose a pet who loved you much. My condolences. May his soul seek new avenues after rest.
He is with his Buddy Richie in Doggy Heaven. He could not be in a better place.
I’m sorry for your loss.
