  • Hello Cookie, I joined the group yesterday and seeing your post made me so sad to read as I have a little Westie by the name of Poppie, your picture of her could very well by my Poppie asleep. I am so sorry for your loss, I really am. My last doggie died suddenly 9 years ago but each time I think of it, tears come. I know all the animals are safe in the meadow at Rainbow Bridge and hopefully we will be reunited with them all one day. Go with your grief and remember you have a ton of support here. Once again I am so sorry.

  • Morning Beth, welcome to a wonderful site, look forward to reading your posts, ...thank you for you post, I lost Sophie my other Westie last September then 6week down the line Ben the boxer died now Lucy, ..Lucy was the eldest she was 13 Sophie was12and Ben was 11' , I guess this is what happens when they are so close in age, she died in her favourite place , on the settee, we adopted a six month old puppy from Battersea two weeks ago, as we thought Lucy was pining for Sophie and Ben, I'm just hoping tht Dexter doesn't start pining for Lucy .....once again welcome to our fibro club, you couldn't have picked a better site, look forward to talking to you again...gentle hugs...Dee x

  • hello Dee so sorry to hear your sad news .how horrible to have to cope with losing all three of your companions .losing my Max was bad Buster pined for him for about two months least they will be happy playing together at The Rainbow Bridge and you wilal meet again one day.

  • I was contemplating getting another dog for Poppie and me. Just thinking of the pain when they leave you, would it make it more bearable as you still have something to care for. Its that dependency on us that I missed when my Jack died. Took me a while before I considered another dog. I am sure Dexter will bring you some comfort during this time. Its nice to meet you too. I think I am going to be on this forum all day every day there is so much to read, love it though.

  • Dee, I am so sorry to hear your sad news. Sending you gentle hugs. Xxx

  • Sorry to hear your sad news take good care

  • Hi Dee so sorry to read your news, its devastating to lose not one but all three, my thoughts are with you. Trish

  • Oh Dee I am so sorry for your loss. I lost three of my friends last year and I know how heartbreaking it can be. !

    Try and have a happy day with all you memories Take care xxx

  • Hi Cookie, so very sorry for your loss; and losing all three is such a short space of time. Our beloved friends always leave a gap, as they are so very close to us in all ways. I lost my cavalier 3 years ago due to heart problems and going blind in one eye, it was pitiful to see her in this state along with cancer at the end. They had to let me out the back of the surgery, because I could not keep it together, after I held her to the end. I want to replace my friend, but have not been able to as yet. My heart goes out to you and I sincerely hope that you get through this day and know that your little darling is in a better place. Sending gent ((hugs))

  • So sorry to hear your loss, I don't have a dog although I love them, I have always had cats and I remember the pain of losing each and everyone of them. But in time you will remember all the beautiful memories. Be strong your lovely friend is in a much more beautiful place now. Love and best wishes x

  • Hello dee. I'm so sorry for your loss. We get so attacked to our pets it's awful when it happens. I have a jack Russell and also a ground squirrel and we lost the squirrel in November and have a great hole left. Hugs. Lesley x

  • Morning, so sorry to hear your news, losing a dog is heartbreaking. Xxxx

  • Oh {{{{{DEE}}}}} I am so so sorry, this must be almost more than is possible to bear. Yet again I have to admire you, being there with her at the very end, it is indeed devastating. As many here have said, I'm sure dear Sophie and Ben will have been waiting at the rainbow Bridge to meet dear Lucy . She is free from pain now running with them, hold that thought and know that all your fibro friends here are sending you lots and lots of hugs and love to try and ease (if only the tiniest bit) your pain and loss.

    I'm sure you will make a real fuss of Dexter and I just hope so so much he doesn't pine too much ! I hope that the lovely dog you so kindly rescued will bring you some sort of solace together with the guidance that Dexter will give her.

    I am sending so many positive healing vibes to you and the doglets wish they could come and lick away your tears {{{{Dee}}}}

  • Oh! So sorry to hear about your loss. Our doggies really are a comfort to us. Poor you loosing them all so quickly. I lost my adorable Labrador 2 1/2 years ago, I miss her terribly, even though I have a new cockerpoo, there is still that sadness for my old doggie. Hopefully in time you will remember all the love and company they gave you, without the pain in your heart. Gentle, comforting hugs to you cookie/Dee x

  • My thoughts are with you at this sad time. Our pets give us such unconditional love and are a big part of our lives.x

  • Oh Dee I am so sorry that you have lost yet another of your beloved friends, and yes it is it is what happens when so close in age. Over the course of 3yrs we lost 2dogs and 3 cats you just don`t have time to recover before losing another. I am sure that having Dexter will give you comfort and help you through, as having Megan helped me The new pet can never replace the lost one, but helps to fill the hole left in you heart. hugs Sue xxxxx

  • Hi Dee. So sorry to hear of your loss, it's just hearth breaking when they go, I lost my lizard in November she had brain damage and was 3 years old, I miss her so much. I have also lost cats and dogs over the years but I believe one day we will be together again.

    It's always heartbreaking when they go and I really feel for you.

    We have had a dog for the past thirty years. We are now on our third, Libby, a rescue Labrador, but we never forget Honey and Jazzy.
