For all of us who consider our pets as members of our family and who have lost a dear one we can certainly understand the sadness you are feeling today (and for the days to come). Everytime we have to say goodbye to one of our babies we swear we will never get another one because it hurts too much to lose them. But we eventually miss the companionship and love and fall all over again for a sweet face or a lick on the hand and know it's time again to put our hearts back on the line. You always want to be as good of a person as your pet thinks you are. During this time of your sorrow take pleasure in remembering that Cookie probably thought you were pretty special too.

Terry and Marie, words are empty and tears come to my eyes. I'm so very very sorry to hear about Cookie. Who knew she would leave this earth so soon. No mater when our pets leave us, it's always too soon. I'm glad I had an opportunity to meet Cookie. She was precious and such a good little dog. My Mom fell in love with her too. Our most sincere sympathy, and a prayer that your empty heartache will ease quickly.

New star in the sky tonight

There will be a new star in the Heavens tonight, named Cookie. She will always be watching over you, guiding your path as you travel. Every time you look to the sky and see a shooting star, you will see Cookie chasing a ball across the Milkey Way.

She was such a loved and cherished friend. I am sad for your loss.

How very sad to lose your little buddy. It always leaves a hole in our hearts when one of our little furballs goes ahead. Cookie had a life full of love, attention, and all the toys a very good puppy deserves.

You are in our thoughts and prayers today.

photos from happier times

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and kind words. Cookie was born at 5:30am Christmas day, 1998. She was 8 year, 11 months, 20 days, and 15 minutes old.
Since we are fulltiming, we really have no back yard for her to be in, she will be interred at an undisclosed location near our trailer. And since she was a Christmas dog, we will keep Poinsettas on her gravesite as long as we are in the area. As for photos, my computer, where they were stored, suffered a catastrophic failure earlier this summer, and most of them were lost. We have them on discs, somewhere, but I of course can't find them. We have pictures of her as a puppy and young dog, and as soon as I can find someone to scan them into digital format, I will put them here.
For now, we just have a few pictures of her over the last few years, which I will include here. Some pictures of her also include Baby, our Siamese cat, that also passed away in the summer 0f 2006.

I'm crying with you.

Many of us have followed your story since the reckless driver smashed you up, but this last thing just has me totally in tears.

It's hard to lose that unconditional love and loyalty your girl gave you. I'm so sorry. At least she didn't suffer - sounds trite - but I hope you can take some comfort in knowing that she didn't linger with a painful disease or suffer for a long time, but just went to sleep right where she wanted to be, guarding to the two of you.

I think everyone who has come to know you is sitting quietly holding hands with you across the miles, and holding you two in their hearts tonight. We are here. Lean on us and we'll all get through this together.

Paula

She died on the floor directly between our beds. I don't think I could tell with a tape measure whose bed she was closest to. We're still castigating ourselves with the "if onlys". If only she had gotten sick during the day, if only I had slept less soundly that night, if only...
Everything is for a reason, I just wish I knew what this one was...

Terry,
Having regained my composure, I wanted to chime in as`another who knows and shares the loss of a beloved "pack mate". We lost our boy Jacques earlier this year. If you are like me, you also feel some anger which you have are not sure where to direct. In my case it was toward my self and the vet.

Rudyard Kipling wrote:

"The price of a good dog is a broken heart at the end."

He was right. But 'this too shall pass'.

For us, recovery was started when we were joined by a new "pack mate":

A Present from "Miss Kitty"

My business partner and I are both cat people, and we had Miss Kitty for 10 years. She wandered into our office on my birthday - a half-grown, half-starved tuxedo kitten.

She plopped down and smiled... I swear she smiled... and just became a part of our office. We appointed her as Stress Management Counselor. Within a week she had won over every employee, even our receptionist who had disliked cats her whole life. Miss Kitty gracefully welcomed every employee, every applicant and every visitor to our office. Many of us were favored by being escorted in from the parking lot personally. She wasn't a lap cat, but loved to sit on a desk or chair and have her fur combed. The children at the neighboring music store also got warm personal greetings from her as they came and went from their lessons.

We noticed that she was becoming a bit of an old lady around her ninth birthday. Her jumps got a little less athletic and a little less freqent but the vet said she was still in robust health. One day near her tenth anniversary she went out and never came back. We searched for her for weeks but there was never any sign.

We briefly tried to adopt a calico kitten, but she wasn't comfortable in a big office, so she was placed with a nice senior citizen who wouldn't overstress her with too much stimuli.

We decided to just wait a while. Then I went on a trip during the week of my partner Bob's birthday... and a half-grown, half-starved tuxedo cat wandered into the office and plopped herself down in the lobby... She looked up and smiled... and her copper eyes said "Miss Kitty sent me".

We are both convinced that K.C. (kitty clone) was sent to us by Miss Kitty; who knew how to pick the perfect cat for us better than we did. We'll never forget Miss Kitty, but K.C. has endeared herself to us and we are so glad she wants to stay indoors all of the time. Thank you for your last gift.

Paula

This is a photo of where we have placed Cookie. We'll get a memory stone for her when finances allow.
It's too quiet around here...
