So sorry to hear your news but we have been away for many weeks. There is not much to say that will ease your pain. I lost 2 dogs in the last 2 years, one to Cancer and one, an adopted rescue dog @18yrs old. It took over a year but last Xmas I asked (pleaded) with santa and a small shitzu arrived. The only dog we have ever paid for.
Just give yourselves some time. Maybe, in your travels, you may come across a little lost soul who needs some love, warmth and kindness. I have a feeling you will....... xx
Fat dog is now known as "Dog in a box", she went with us to the Lincoln Show and then on to Tattershall Lakes, she doesn't need much looking after now and fits nicely in the basket on the front of the Hymer.. She will be going with us when we go away for the winter as well.
Feel for you Ray, said never again last time then daughter and son conspired with their mum to get a collie, she lived with us till daughter moved into house with her boyfriend, not a problem I was at work and coped easily then they came back and lived with us while sorting out a house, as I was semi retired I took her out most of the time when they moved out again I lasted a whole month,
Gotta get through the pain of losing a member of the family before the memories dominate.
Just read your post, were without Internet whilst away recently. Sorry to hear your sad news, gut wrenching. May your memories only be happy ones.
If only I had a pound for every time I said never again Ray
But there's always a hound somewhere who needs their life starting again and prepared to kick start yours
We lasted a month last time
I guess, a good life was had.
And fond memories.
Hi Ray, so sorry to read about Evie, she looked a belter.
Like yourselves, we said we would have no more Dogs after my best pal Barney the Shih Tzu died nearly 6 years back. But after a couple of weeks of crying ourselves to sleep (and even giving myself conjunctivitis in the process). We had to give in, that the only way over it was to get Daisy the Labradoodle. She will be 6 years old in Nov, and we all loves her to bits. But I do know that feeling of not wanting another, I'm sure we will be saying it ourselves the next time it happens.
Love the plan to take Evie travelling with you again.
No more dogs for us of any breed, in fact we are having no more pets.
We have had a Golden Labrador, three Alsatians, A Golden Cocker Spaniel and finally Evie. since we have been married.
We said no more when we had our Buttons the Spaniel put down on Christmas day, but Evie who was my son and daughter in laws dog, and when they divorced she had her tied up to the drainpipe all day and made Evie sleep in the outside garage on an old sofa. All her ribs were sticking out, so we took the dog off her..
And that's when her life started again when she was loved and looked after by us.
She will always be with you
But if you need to carry her with you
Then it's time to find a living dog who really needs you
Looked today on Dalmatian rescue
There's one there who really needs you and Sandra
Evie knows, they pass from our lives, leave their mark and enable us to go on to the next stage
And remain with us to strengthen us through
