How very sad for you folks today. The hurt runs deep. Our little Cricket passed last October after 21 years (cats do live a bit longer sometimes) and I still look for her when I come in the house. She's got a big spot in our hearts as Penny has in yours, and with that memory they continue to live. Wounds heal, but fortunately the memories remain for as long as we wish to keep them. This past 12 months seems to have been a hard one on a lot of our forums community's pets.

We have a photo wall in our house and all our pets have a frame of their own with pictures of them in it. Some just have a couple pictures, some, like Alki, have a bunch. There are pictures of our human family up there as well, some of which are no longer with us. It's a comfort to walk through the hall and glance at the pictures of our loved ones who have been gone a while and for a second remember the great times we had together. But the pictures are right there with the ones who are still with us, so it's not all sad. That's my remembrance area.

My condolences to you and yours. Penny is now free of pain and I like to think that she is waiting for your re-union at the bridge.

Again, I'm so sorry for your loss.

We're saddened to hear of your loss. Penny was undoubtably a great travel and home companion for many years. A little part of you will never again be whole, but you are richer for having shared your life with her.
Rest well, Penny

I met Penny at Moraine View in 2005. In her absence, this year Eric told the tail of her state of health -- I know she meant a lot to you 'Twink. Sorry to hear this. We'll keep an eye out for doggie-shaped clouds in our travels and shout out a 'hi' from you when we see her.

So sorry to hear of your loss. We had a bad year last year, losing our beloved ol' cat, who had been with us 15 years, and our wonderful German Sheperd, Bella, who was almost ten. But wouldn't you know it, before too long I was in the backyard and heard a faint "mew" in a nearby bush. Much to my surprise, there was a cute little kitten who is now part of our family. Then about a month ago, our friend who works at the local shelter called and said there was a dog there she wanted us to see. The dog had been left by a family who moved away and couldn't take the dog. "Sadie", a beautiful, sweet, one-year-old German Sheperd is also now part of the family. We still miss our departed animals, but the hurt is replaced by love for and from the new ones.
Grieve for a while, then rescue some sweet soul from the local shelter. You will be so glad you did.
God Bless,

It's with saddness I read about Penny. Hopefully she went peacefully, and that you both were with her to the end.

As someone who puts a greater value on animal life than human, Pam and our four kats, Hoover, Jiffy, Ella, and Oscar feel your pain.

best to you both.

Sometimes I wish I were living in the stone age. Then I would know I'm the smartest person in the world.

A good friend is hard to forget.

Your loss just brought back memories of all the dogs I have had and lost.
I have owned dogs all of my life; ever since I was born.
I miss them all greatly.
Here's to Penny. I know she is in Doggy Heaven playing and romping with all those other dearly missed friends.

Oh this makes me cry. It is so hard to lose these dear, dear friends. Reading about one who has died just brings back the memories of my own beloved pets that gave me such happiness. Somewhere there is a really lost puppy looking for you. I know Penny will lead you to him.
