I've Been Meaning to Tell You...

October 6th, 2009 at 11:10 pm

I've been meaning to tell you guys that the main reason I was absent here most of July was that my little black doxie died that month. I miss her still. She was the one who had broken her back and she had healed up pretty good and was getting around actually fairly well with a noticeable wobble. She was a pound dog and she was pretty old (estimated between 9-13) when we got her to begin with. She had about four or five good years with us.

Last month when Mom's three little doxie's came to visit was bittersweet, but gave our other pupster some friends to play with for that week. We had a whole 'herd'.

All the pet talk here just kept bringing up the thought that I hadn't told ya'll about her passing, and, well, I just needed to let you guys know that. You all were so supportive when she got hurt.

She was a sweet loving little lap dog, and I miss her. That's her in the top picture.

We are not planning to get any more dogs for a good long while. The other dog here actually belongs to CashHappySon and if he ever goes to live in a house will likely mean he'll want to claim her. I'm not willing for him to take her to live in an apartment and be cooped up. She loves to run!

Right now she's happily licking my sugar-free Jello cup!

    I'm so sorry about your dog. Actually, we lost our dog a week ago as well. We got a new puppy right away because other dog was not doing well, seemed to be depressed because he lost his buddy. Dogs sure are a part of family.

    Ohhh, so sorry about your dog as well! They sure do worm their way into our hearts, don't they?

    Our other dog did a lot of sighing and sleeping at first, but seems to be doing better now.

    I am so sorry. I swore after Nina's passing no dogs too. I lasted 4 months and have had my sweet little Landon now for 4 years. He is sitting by me now.

    Maismom, I am sorry for your loss too if you see this.

    My condolences to you. Its great that she had that good 4-5 years with you - our love, affection and care time is really the only great gift we give our pets and somehow that has to be enough.

    I'm sorry to hear about your doxy... she was a lucky dog to have landed in your home and had 4-5 wonderful years. I wish there were more people like you in the world.

    I am so sorry too. Our dogs mean so much to us.
