Little Dog Lost...

Monday, April 5, 2010

It was a sad, sad weekend at Queenie’s castle. We suffered a heartbreaking loss in our family on Friday. Our beloved straw lab, Sandi, passed away Friday night. She was 16 and we knew that her days left with us weren’t going to be many, but this just came out of the blue and left us with a gaping hole in our hearts.

She came to us as a furry little stray puppy with no collar or tags. After posting flyers and running an ad in the paper with no response, we decided to keep her as our own. One of the best decisions we ever made. A better companion you will never find.

She was always there to greet us with a happy bark and a wag of the tail after a long day at work. She was also good for cleaning up your plate or she would just sit and look at you with those big eyes just waiting for you to drop a crumb or two for her.

Hub got home from work this morning and he called me as there was on one home to greet him when he came in the door. He has been struggling with this loss more than Little Man and I. He is an animal lover and was so attached to her. It’s going to take him a while to get past this.

Her dinner dish is still in the kitchen, her bed is still in our room and she will be forever in our hearts.

RIP Sandi… we miss you so very much!

I'm so sorry, Queenie. It's always so sad when a beloved family member passes, and our pets are very much our family. My heart breaks for you. 16 was a good long life but that doesn't make it any easier.

I know exactly how you feel. I was broken when my cat died after 14 years. I got her as a baby, she needs a baby bottle at that time.
big hugs to you and your family

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. It sounds like Sandi picked a good family to accompany her through life...I hope you find comfort in the memories of the good times you shared <3

Steph, I'm so sorry :( We lost our canine companion when I was a senior in high school; he lived with us for 12 years. I feel for you and your little man.

Hugs and love to you all.

Oh Steph! I am so sorry to hear this news. I completely understand, since Wednesday will be the one year anniversary of my losing Toby.

Maybe the two of them are playing together on the Rainbow Bridge now....

Love you!

Oh Queenie.
I'm sooo sorry. I know how bad it sucks to lose a pet. I'm totally tearing up here. it just SUCKS.

A whole lot of hugs from me to you.

The neat thing about animals is that they love unconditionally. I was so choked up reading this. She looked like such a cutie. I'm sending big hugs your way.

A big hug to you Steph. I have tears running down my face as I'm sitting here hugging my own senior citizen....who is purring and trying to nuzzle my face.
