Mildred and I

Mildred and I

I am writing this post to you all today to share how wonderful and blessed I have been for the last nine years with my little westie Mildred who sadly passed away yesterday.......she was really quite an amazing little dog, she would sit with me all day when I had bad days, she knew when I was unable to take her out and loved a ride in the car, she came every where with us, she was patient, calm and loving.

It is now as I sit here that I realise how therapeutic she was in my life with the ongoing struggles with fibromyalgia and other associated conditions that impact me each day.

Wishing you all much comfort and love x

  • Shazzad,

    I am so sorry for your loss. You must remember all the good times you shared together it will help.

    My mum lost her dog just before Christmas, she got another dog in only a few weeks because she said the house was just too quiet without one.

    I have still never had another dog and Sparkle died 14 years ago.

    I am rambling now sorry.

    You are in my prayers today, I am sending gentle hugs. Xx

  • Thank u so much for your kind supportive comments, very much appreciated xxx

  • I am so sorry. Run free sweetheart over the rainbow bridge. With the wind in your face and the Sun on your back.

  • Thank you.....much appreciated xxx

  • Morning shazzad

    So sorry to hear your sad news. But so glad for you that you got to share her life with her which clearly gave you both so much pleasure and happiness.

    Try to remember the good times. We never forget them but hopefully the pain will get easier in time.

    Gentle healing hugs,

  • Thank you for your kind words of support, much appreciated xxx

  • I have wondered at times why we do this! We bring these beautiful animals into our lives knowing one day our hearts will break....then we do it all over again!! Those years together are so special and we remember each one and their own particular personality. They give us so much in love and loyalty.....My thoughts and prayers are with you.....

  • So sorry to hear this - Time does heal but unfortunately not very quickly. I still miss my beautiful white cat and it is over four years now. Sending you a big hug X

  • So sorry about little Mildred but at least you got to spend all those years with her.

    It's still such an awful wrench when they leave us and really pulls on the heart strings.

    They certainly have a sense when they know what your going thru- almost human.

    I lost my two cats a few years ago and never replaced them as I felt they were irreplaceable.Sometimes I regret not doing so but other times I Felt I made the right decision.

    You do what is right for you.

    Really feel for you Shazzad.

    Take care.

I hope you're able to take comfort from knowing that Mildred will have known how much you loved her and that she had a happy life with you. She was a lucky little dog to be so loved. These little ones leave their pawprints on our hearts forever, they never really leave us.
