Default Well done, faithful friends. . .

My first dog, Carlos lived to 19 years, and Poco lived to nearly 14.

Poco passed a year ago last November. Losing him hurts as much today as it
did a year and a half ago. Not a day goes by I don't think of him.
Somedays I still think I see him laying on his favorite pillow.

Carlos passed just this Feb.
How do you wake up every day for 19 years to a dog, and then wake up
to a world that he doesn't exist in ? It's been brutal.

I guess I'm as proud that he had such a long, happy life as am I sad
that he's gone.

I feel proud to have shared my life with both of them.
I told them that every day they walked the earth.
They were perfect souls, and my best friends.

Well done, faithful friends....well done.

Poco

Carlos

It is hard and I'm not sure if the longer we have them the harder it is.

I only had my little Chi Honey for 7 years (she died at 9 from heart problems) and It hurt and still does as much as when I lost my beloved little terrier at 17 plus.

Like you, I am thankful that I had so long with my lil terrier girl. I'm of course thankful for the years with Honey...though I still sometimes feel "cheated" that she only lived to be 9....but that's the way it is. I wouldn't have missed a moment of that time

Poco and Carlos were (and are) beautiful and obviously much loved little lads

Take care,
Barbara x

I'm sure losing a dog after 7 months, 7 years, or 70 years is equally hard.
I felt cheated when Poco passed, but after he passed, I looked at pictures of him near the end and was shocked at how he'd aged, and how his suffering took a toll on him.When he was alive I only saw ' my baby'.

I'm not exactly surrounded by dog people in the real world.
The comments made after they passed made me stop talking about it
to anyone. "Wow he was old - now you can get a new one"

I wanted to use this opporutunity to say good bye to boys,
and honor them one last time.

I would not trade a moment of it all, either.

I'm so sorry for your loss. You said it so well about Carlos and Paco being your faithful friends. They were much loved family members.

I can empathize with you. My first chi was 18 years old and my second chi was 15 years old when they passed away. They were my faithful dog-ters (daughters) and friends. It still hurts and I miss them very much. My babies live forever in my heart.

Bella, Lina, and I send hugs to you.

Lina's photos remind me so much of Poco.
Most of my photos of Poco aren't digital. Someday
I'll get them transfered.

Thanks for all the sweet thoughts to everyone.
