It's been a week since I've lost my precious little Pucky. Pucky was such a tender soul. He was mommy's constant companion. Like I said before, I knew the end was coming, as he was 19 years old, but I just was so unprepared when everything happened so darned fast. It was like he was fine one day, and dead the next. I still have no real answers as to why he died, what caused it. I can only surmise he had either a seizure while we were all at work, or a stroke.
I wish we could have had one more summer to spend together. Just one more!!!! Oh how he loved to go out back with mommy and sniff, and bark, and sniff, and bark some more. He had just the huskiest sounding bark!!! I burried his broken down earthly body outside my bathroom window. Him and I spent lots of time together in the bathroom. The very minute I would go in there, to do whatever, he was barreling the door down. So it was only fitting I burried him outside the bathroom window, right tight up to the house. I burried him in his little blue bed, with his special dog treats that I gave him every night when we went to bed. I saved a small piece of his golden fur, which I stroke often for comfort. It is the only "earthly" form of Pucky I have left. But, what I have in my heart from Pucky is enourmous. He left me with a legacy of love and a lifetime of happy memories. I thank him from the bottom of my heart for our wonderful friendship. Until we meet again my special puckineese, I LOVE YOU!!! xoxoxoxo ~~ Mommy ~~~ xoxoxoxo

I feel you pain you have from losing your little Pucky. You and Pucky were very lucky to have shared your love for 19 years. Pucky will always be in your heart. I know Pucky is in Heaven with my little sweetheart Meister. He was 17 and no matter how much I tried to prepare myself for losing him the pain was more than I ever could imagine. It is very very hard not having them with us. I also saved a piece of his fur to hold.
I will be thinking of you and Pucky and remember you in my prayers. I hope in time the pain will ease by remembering all the great time you had. You will be together in happiness one day. Many hugs, Mary Meisters Mom

I loved your post about your precious Pucky, and I identified with it because my cat Cheeseburger loved to hang out in the bathroom too! I am very sorry for the loss of your Pucky.
Sometimes I would find him sitting in the bath tub watching the water drip, and when he was little he used to sleep in the bathroom sink. Cheeseburger hated closed doors, and when I took a shower I always left the door cracked open for him. He would jump up on the toilet seat or on the counter and just chill. He was fascinated by water. Our angels definitely leave their paw prints upon our hearts. They are pure unconditional love and even though they are no longer here physically, their spirit and love remains in our hearts forever. I am hoping Cheese and Pucky find one another and are maybe are laying by a beautiful stream watching the water together. Dee Cheeseburger's Mom email@example.com Dee + Cheeseburger = LOVE

Hi, I too saved a bit of Ruperts fur and it still smells like him. I am going to buy a gold heart that opens and in it I will put some fur and his photo and hang it round my neck. He will be close to my heart for ever. Thinking of you Ruperts Mum

I do not think that there is any way we can prepare for their loss. They are such a huge part of our lives that when they leave they take our lives with them. They were the Joy in our lives and now the Joy is gone Forever. I am so sorry for all your pain and if there was something I could say that would help I would say it; unfortunately I have found nothing that helps in the 15 months I have been looking. They were our babies and now they are gone and they are never coming back. That statement speaks for itself. I just wanted you to know that I am here if you need anything and I am Praying for you and your babies. Big Hugs Georgeann and Christopher Forever

Dear MrsBillsNPuckys' mum,
Like you, I was unprepared for my baby's loss. It's only been a few days and I'm still in shock, denial and grief, as I'm sure you are too. I am sorry for your pain and your loss. My heart bleeds for my own. I don't think that there is anything that anyone can say the make you feel any better, the only thing that would make me feel better is to have my baby back with me. Like you say..just one more summer would have been wonderful. I also took a lock of my baby, Jackson's, hair for safekeeping and I have his ashes in a special box with a plaque and his beautiful photo. It is small comfort, but it brings a little peace knowing that I still have something of his with me. I pray for our babies that they find peace and we will see them again one day. Shiannon

I'm sorry for your loss of Pucky. I don't think we can ever prepare for their passing no matter how long. My how you sound like me. I just wished for one more summer. But my Nina passed in November. She was handicapped, used a wheelchair and when the first cold weather hit, I knew in my heart the winter was going to be very bad. Perhaps she knew that, who knows. I can tell there was great love between you two. I think under the bathroom window is the fitting place. I'm glad you are able to think of the legacy of love and lifetime of happy memories, this will help you through your pain.
Thoughts and prayers, Nina Maria's Mom

OUR TOMORROW If tomorrow never comes then we had yesterday. If we never have one more moment we have our memories. If time stands still and there are no more words to say. You will hear me calling you in the softness of the breeze. Listen to your heart and you will feel me there. Deep within your soul i will stay with you. Thoughts of me will keep you warm I will be everywhere. No matter where you go my love will always be true. If tomorrow never comes then i will wait for you my friend. Just beyond the rainbow where there is not a care. Of one thing you can be sure there will never be an end. One day you will come and find me waiting there. So look beyond the rainbow and hear me softly say. There is no need for all those tears my love. We shall be together forever and one day. Until then i shall watch you from above. I will hold you in my heart and never let you go. I will guide your every footstep along life's way. Then one day i will run to your waiting arms and you will know. This is our time and you may come and stay. © Kathy Hayes aka AurichWolf 2007

You have my deepest sympathy. I am so sorry to read of your loss.
How wonderful that your Pucky is right outside the bathroom window where you two loved to be together. Pucky will always be there with you now. I will pray for you and your dear Pucky. Steffi Dakotah's Mom
