Oh I'm so sorry. Its so hard to lose a member of the family xx

Aww Vonnie, I'm really sorry to hear this, it's the second sad post I've seen in less than a day. It's such an awful feeling when they go isn't it, it leaves an empty lost feeling in your life and you feel like you'll never get over it - I've been through it five times now and it really hurts. As you say Vonnie, they are family and not just pets and that's so very true and yes, they are probably now running together pain free - gone but never forgotten. Thinking of you. xx

Oh Yvonne, I’m so sorry. They give us such joy & leave such a hole when they go. I'm sure Leah is running zoomies with her Maggie now, pain free. They never really leave us, but they do take with them a part of our heart.

Very sad. It's hard losing a pet. Take care x

I am truly so sorry to hear this sad news and send you my heartfelt wishes to you. Yours is the 2nd piece of sad news I have had today as my friend lost her much loved cat yesterday. So there really are lots of bright stars twinkling in the sky from much loved members of our four legged family and friends. Bless you xx

Aww I am so sad for you, dear Vonnie. 💗I know what a dear friend she was to you and your hubby. 😢 Such a sweet lil pug. Both gorgeous. Sending you lots of gentle hugs and love. 💗xxx

Sad news but hopefully you can realise that you gave her a happy life in return for the joy she bought into yours.

It's so hard isn't it, i'm so sorry x

You will always have happy memories of her .

That’s so sad but she is pain free now and you will always treasure your memories of her. X

I’m genuinely so sorry to hear about your little dog and hope that your memories and photos will help to ease the pain . I’ve lost a few doggies in my time and understand some of the pain your going through.

🤗Really sorry to hear your sad news. Sending you Big hugs😘

So sorry, but at least she has no more pain. Take care.

So sorry for your loss it's so hard loosing a much loved pet, have you read the lovely poem The Rainbow Bridge it's given me some comfort at those sad times.

Tears and sadness for you loss Vonnie; prayers love hope an strength sent xx

So sorry for your loss Vonnie, a true friend in your heart forever. 💔

So sad to hear of your loss. It's never easy to let a beloved member of the family go. She'll always have a place in your heart

So sad for you. I last one of my dogs last year and am now really anxious about losing my remaining one. She is eleven and a half with a number of health issues. Has been on steroids for 10 of her years. That loss is so deep. Am thinking of you. Just remember that your baby is out of pain. xxx

I didn't expect a reply so thank you for that. The loss is so deep and you never really get over it, you just learn to accommodate the loss and to remember the major part of that dog's life which gave you so much pleasure. The fun you had together and their quirky little ways as well as how they knew your ways so well and you fitted together seamlessly. xx

I’m still. Waking up and thinking she is here don’t be anxious she or he will be fine my Leah was so old and tired. I will be getting one later down the line just concentrating on doing the house up that’s keeping me busy new kardean floor new sofas and so on. Keeps my mind busy . X

My heart goes out to you Vonnie. Losing a big part of your family is so hard. I have recently lost my retired guide dog and I am still crying tears for her. One of my friends sent me this lovely poem this week and hope you don’t mind me sharing it with you. It made me cry but also gave me a little peace too. Always missed and never forgotten our precious four legged friends.

Hi Mom,

Now that I’ve been across The Rainbow Bridge for a couple weeks, they said I should write a letter home.

Sorry, Mom but I’m so busy ‘across the bridge’ that I haven’t thought of home much. They said it’s okay and that you would understand. I hope you do. (I think you will.)

Remember that night when I wasn’t feeling very well and we were all crying?

I don’t remember much, but I do remember seeing and hearing all of you and feeling your touches and hugs…I remember hearing “we love you” and that one last command of “Go through”.

I didn’t know what you meant, so I turned around and walked through the fog that was in front of me.

I saw the biggest bridge I’ve ever seen! And so many friends on the other side of it!

They were all playing with toys and balls!

You were right to tell me to go there!

My feet kept moving forward, but my heart kept pulling me back.

Your touches became lighter and lighter and I wanted to come back and nudge your hands for more love, but I was overcome by this feeling of curiosity for the happy place over the bridge!

My feet started moving on their own, like a gentle breeze was moving them forward for me!

I can’t explain it, but I had no doubt that it was the right thing to do!

So, I walked across that big, huge bridge by myself!

I looked for you, because you’re always by my side, walking with me, but this was different.

I didn’t have a collar around my neck or a leash connecting me to you ~ I was ‘free’!

Even though you weren’t there with me, I never felt alone!

I actually felt like I had a huge cape of love wrapped around my body and the more I walked, the easier it was to breathe!

So, I kept walking!

And I would feel more warmth in the big hug, so I kept on walking!

I eventually made it over the big bridge – I did it by myself, mom. When I got here, all of my new friends greeted me and helped me walk off the bridge ~ it was so cool!

They gave me a pair of wings and said that I was now a Guardian Angel!

What I’ve learned over these past few weeks has been amazing and nothing like I’ve seen before!

We’re all the same up here ~ we all have wings and we all have Forever People to watch over ~ that’s YOU, mom !

You’re my Forever Person and I’m your Forever Dog!

We had such a great life together and I do miss you a LOT, but please know that I am so happy in my new home across The Bridge!

I’ll send you another Earth Angel so you won’t be alone.

Give them your whole heart, like you gave it to me.

I’ll check in every so often to make sure they treasure your love ~ I always did!

When you miss me, think of a rainbow and know I’m on the other side of it, waiting to walk with you again.

I’ll always be in your heart.

I love you, mom!

Time for me to go play.”

Summer I’m in bits reading this how lovely I think I’m ok then I’m in bits again thankyou for that lovely message ..

X

So sorry, sending hugs to you 🙏
