Very sad but staying strong

Hi all. It's been ages since I was last on here. I have now not had a ciggy for 18months. At the end of September I went on a two week narrow boat holiday with my partner, beautiful dog and friends, one of which had just had his last chemo session. It all started so well but on the third day out beautiful Barney got sick and we rushed him to the vets. Sadly we ended up coming home alone. Heartbroken. He is my picture on here.

  • Hey BunnySue xx

    Sorry to hear about your poor Barney dog, I remember you talking about him a while ago :-(

    You've managed to stay strong through a very trying time, losing a pet means losing a member of your family. As JillyGirl says, remember the good times that you spent together - I bet you have some crackin' memories both happy and scatty - I mean who wouldn't after being owned by a springer!

    Although for a very sad reason, it is still lovely to hear from you :-)

  • I'm so very sorry to hear your sad news about Barney, to lose a pet is heartbreaking.

    We love them so much and I know how difficult it is, so my thoughts are with you, take care x

  • So very sorry about Barney,I know how hard it is.My love and thoughts are with you.He looks like he was an amazing pet,I guess as Jilly and EmJay have said the best way is just to remember the good times you shared and to try and be happy that you were chosen to share them with him. Hugs H x

  • Aww, so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved pooch :( :(

    As all pet owners know our pets are a big part of the family and we hurt whenever they hurt.

    Like others have said, think of the good times :) :)

    What helped me when i lost a very much loved poodle was to make a scrapbook with all the photos that i took of Monty and ones he just appeared in :) :) i still have the scrapbook and he has been gone for about 15 years :) :) Now have two dogs 11 and 9 and not looking forward to going through it again.

  • So sorry about Barney. I hope that the good memories help you. He was a lucky boy to be so loved xx
