It’s time……

Yes, we’ve been quiet this weekend.

We’re saying our good-byes to DeDe.


It’s time, and we’re not handling it well.

Thank you for understanding. We’ll be back when we’re able.

  8. So very, very sorry for your loss. Nobody knows what you’re going through better than I. I’ve said this to you before, but it’s something I heard once, and it’s helped me through this.

    When a dog dies, she gets to spend all her days romping and playing with her long lost siblings, and each night she makes the journey back, to lie at the feet of her Human. There are many dogs lying at my feet.

    P.S. Thank you so much for the Follow.

  16. It’s akin to losing a child. I hate having to make that decision but you have to step outside yourself and be the protector and ask what DeDe would want. You’re in my thoughts. I’ll alert our babies who have already crossed to be ready to greet their new friend.

  17. You have a lot of friends out here who understand what you are going through, including us. Take the time you need and know that you are doing right by Dede.

    Hugs and Woos – Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning, and Mom

  19. Prayers and hugs sent your way and remember that all of our loved ones who have passed on are there to take care of them now. The memories will always be there with you

  20. Our hearts are breaking for you. Our prayers are with all of you, we know what you’re going through. We will be here for you whenever you’re strong enough to return. Godspeed to you all.

  21. DeDe. Such a beautiful lady. I am so so sorry, my heart goes out to you and the pretty lady. I can really imagine how you must feel. I have a pack of 5, 2 of them are 13. One, Argus, has bad arthritis, the other, Sasha, has been fighting bone cancer since 03/2012 – and we have been through hell and back for this girl. What I would not do to have her healed. Her time gets closer and closer, and I am getting afraid of not knowing when it might be time.

    I will be thinking of you and your girl.

  22. My heart goes out to you. I am in a similar position at the moment but have not come to making the final decision; it is so hard. However think of the the good times and remember the love that only a dog can give, Chris.

  23. That decision and that goodbye, is the trueness of unconditional love. The boys and I will take pause today, and hold you and DeDe close to our hearts.

  24. I’m not going to handle this well, either. DeDe – such a gentle soul. I’m glad she had you and Rumpy there. Peace and warmth. (Rumpy, RC extends a warm soft cheek pat in sympathy of losing such a friend. She understands the sadness and wishes to do what she can to comfort)

  25. I’m so sorry. It’s so hard losing a treasured member of your family. Sending much love your way xxx

  26. Oh Rumpydog and gang I’m so sorry daddy pepper and Rafie have their paws crossed and saying a pray for you and Jen all of us send you hugs

  27. I am so sorry DeDe’s time has come…please accept our love & prayers for a gentle transition & may your memories be a comfort to you thru this difficlt time & always.
    Sincerely, Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue xo

  28. Our Mocha is getting very old and hasn’t been feeling well lately. Today we learned she has fluid behind her heart which has caused her recent lethargy. She’s on a diuretic which should help. It’s been suggested that we have a cardiologist check out her heart murmur. The specialist can help determine what exactly is wrong and prescribe the right medication. So I guess we’ve bought Mocha some time. But I know what you must be feeling. hugs…

  29. I am so sorry. I, too, recently had to say goodbye to my dog. I had him almost 19 years and it seems so very strange without him. My thoughts are with you.

  30. I have only just caught up here. I was searching for news of De-De and have now read this. I am so very very sorry, De-De was a beautiful little soul, I have no other words, my heart aches for you….sending you all love and hugs from here in Wales. Always Ceri xxx

  31. Rumpy Dog, So sorry for your loss. With time I hope it will get a little easier and the pain will become a little lighter.
    My very best to you in your time of pain.

  32. This is a very delayed reply to this, my dear Jen but I just read it…
    I know how hard it is to say goodbye to a friend, but I know she is happy now and free as she was so loved.
    Sending you my thoughts and may she always be in a warm place in your hearts.
