what a good boy

goodbye my sweet, wonderful Chopin, i'm so sorry i couldn't be there with you in the end. you were such a good boy. i will always remember the day i brought you home as one of the happiest days of my life.


you brought joy and laughter to all our lives. you lived well and were well loved. you ruled the house and everyone in it. you fought hard to live and went through more surgeries and procedures than anyone should have to live through, but in the end it was all just too much for your poor little body to bear and you could fight no more.




i know now that you are in a wonderful place where there is no pain, no ache, no sickness, no endless rounds of medication or i.v.s or feeding tubes. a place where your liver won't fail and the vet won't cry because there's nothing else she can do for you...you are in a place now where you can run and play like we did when you were a puppy and go for endless walks with dad and mom and Rumpy and you can bark all day long at whoever you want and no one will ever tell you to be quiet.


i know for you there is no more suffering, for us though, the heartache is just beginning. we will miss hearing your barks, getting your kisses and giving you tummy rubs, and just having you there like the faithful companion you were.

goodbye, beloved puppy.

Kay, I am so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful boy Chopin was. We lost our sweet shepherd/Akita mix, Emily, last year. Letting them go is one of the hardest things to do. I'm thinking about you.

Thank you all for your kind words, they mean a lot to me. It's never easy to let our pets go, they leave such lasting pawprints in our hearts.

Kay I am so sorry you lost Chopin, he was a pretty boy. Its only been about 2 months since I lost my beloved Griffin, and I'm sure they are both romping at the bridge together. Chopin will be missed, but he is at peace now with no suffering. Hugs go out to you.

Kay, my heart goes out to you at the loss of your pretty boy Chopin. I lost my beloved Griffin 2 months ago and it is hard. I'm sure they are both in a better place now, romping at the bridge together. Hugs to you all.

I grieve with you on your loss. I am still crying. Our pets have always been 'family', and did not know they were not people! Always loved, spoiled, amd lived long lives. My baby now is 3, and he is a sweetie. I swore never again when we lost our last little guy, but weakened when I heard this one was on his way to pound! God Bless you.

Hi Kiki, this is so sad that I couldn´t comment before... I know exactly how it feels. I´m so sorry, my friend. I believe there´s a Heaven for them too.
