How We’re Doing

We are doing OK. Me and June Buggie have called a truce.


Bubba is getting used to not having his friend around.


Jen says it feels weird not having to dole out medicines twice a day and to not have that sweet face watching her. She didn’t realize it would be so hard to let her go.

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  2. Fortune smiled on DeDe the day Jen found her and brought her home. She had a wonderful family and a wonderful well-loved life. Now she and Sage are running together in a sunlit meadow at the Bridge and whenever you look up at the night sky, they’ll be two of the brightest stars twinkling at you. Gentle hugs from me and soft purring from RainbowCatsx8+2

  5. We’ve been thinking about you and how strange it must be to not have her there…..I like to think of her running through meadows and chasing cats and squirrels and being happy and healthy…..But I bet she misses you as much as you miss her……….

    Hugs, Pam and Sam

  11. Thinking of you! We know how hard it is to say goodbye to a beloved pet. DeDe will be running and playing Over Rainbow Bridge now, knowing you did the hardest and most kindest thing you could do. Sending love and hugs to you, Rumpy and June Buggie

  25. Nuzzles and purrs. Time will heal, and the depth of loss is only measured by the depth of your love.

  26. Sometimes shocking how we survive the very most difficult, but loving, acts of kindness…

  27. I know we all truly appreciate the update on how your all doing. I can say I have never lost a pet to the rainbow bridge so I cant say i understand. But I do know what its like to lose a family member though, so as i said my thoughts and prayers are with you all. And I know you will get through this slowly but surely

  29. Oh Jen and the rest of the crew, I’m so sorry, I wish there was something I could say or do to help, instead I’ll just keep you in my thoughts.

  30. Such a big hole in your lives. Hugs to you guys!

  31. Sincere condolences. It is terribly hard to have the big hole in your life.

  32. I’m not going to like this post because it is hard letting go, especially when it’s someone you fought with to get better and things just didn’t work out. I had that initial guilt with our cat Miss Bitty, she was on meds twice a day for a while and then down to once a day. Please know that I am here if you need to talk, need an e-hug *hugs* or just want to yell at someone for how unfair the world is. Please know that you and the family are in my thoughts. Sending love & purrs. ~Chris

  34. It is so hard to lose a beloved friend. Someday you will only smile when you think of DeDe. “Don’t cry because it’s over – smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss (((hugs)))

  35. I have posted this a couple times on my blog, and they are words that I live by… Grief is the price we pay for love.

    It doesn’t make it easier though.

  41. I can’t stop crying every time I think of DeDe, but it’s not about me! She was the dearest, sweetest dog and you gave her the best life ever, Jen! I’m thinking of you, Rumpy and your gorgeous cats every day and wish I could do more to help you through. xoxoxoxoxoxox

  44. HOw are you able to call a truce so easily? Cats and I are not friends!

    Posted by Ruckus the Eskie | January 23, 2014, 12:39 PM
  45. Losing any family member is hard, but especially losing one who has given you unlimited and unmitigated love. Just know that that love doesn’t stop just because the physical body is no longer there.

    *hugs from Sandra, Oreo, Ling Ling & Tilly Tot*
