Rough morning-


I had to say goodbye to my dog, Pokey, this morning. I got her for my 14th birthday, and she went with me as I left the nest. We had 13 years together... 13 years. She gave me so much happiness, and I hope I gave some back to her. God... I miss her so much already.

I'm so sorry....It's so painful. But great that you got to experience such love. Hugs. He probably stuck around long enough to make sure your nombie arrived safely...

So sorry honey!! It is so hard! We lost our pup (14 years old) three years ago and were only able to convince ourselves get a new pup 10 months ago. It really is loosing a piece of your family.

Oh my dear, I'm so sorry :( This brought tears to my eyes.

I just know you were an excellent mommy to Pokey, and that you brought her tons of happiness.

Sorry for the loss of your fur baby.

I'm sorry to hear about Pokey. She looks exactly like my Snickerz (who I've had for a long time, too). 13 years is a wonderfully full life for a Lab, which is what she looks to be. I'm sure her life was wonderful, and very fulfilled.
Bye, Pokey. Thanks for sticking with your momma until your brother showed up.

I'm so sorry hon. My sweet girl is about 12 1/2 (we think) and I can tell she's slowed down some. I can imagine how much you miss Pokey right now.

I am so, so sorry about Pokey. It is so hard to say goodbye to a loved family member. She was a lucky dog to have a wonderful life with you and was obviously very loved...
