  3. I'm sorry losing Mabel is so painful.

    I lost my 10yr old cockapoo to lymphoma a few yrs ago. She always needed a bit more attention than my other animals but was totally devoted to me. She was also the youngest and most energetic of the group.

    I was with her when she passed and it took awhile to recover from losing her. Occasionally, I would listen to "Into the West" by Annie Lennox.

    It's always hardest losing the ones that need us most.

    Take care.

  4. The house must feel very empty. Time is the only healer.

  5. Addendum, check the poster feature on the blog tomorrow John, a double feature just for you. I wanted to do something to cheer you up a bit.

  6. John, you were so kind when we lost Pip - don't forget Kipling - the last verse is particularly relevant. Thinking of you.x

  7. Someone sent me this poem when a beloved pet died and it helped.


    The Last Battle
    If it should be that I grow frail and weak
    And pain should keep me from my sleep,
    Then will you do what must be done,
    For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
    You will be sad I understand,
    But don't let grief then stay your hand,
    For on this day, more than the rest,
    Your love and friendship must stand the test.
    We have had so many happy years,
    You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
    When the time comes, please, let me go.
    Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
    Only, stay with me till the end
    And hold me firm and speak to me
    Until my eyes no longer see.
    I know in time you will agree
    It is a kindness you do to me.
    Although my tail its last has waved,
    From pain and suffering I have been saved.
    Don't grieve that it must be you
    Who has to decide this thing to do;
    We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
    Don't let your heart hold any tears.

  8. No words can ease your pain...So here is a soft shoulder to cry on, two arms to hold you and a hug from California to you.

  10. I wish I had one of those "beam me up Scotty" machines, I would beam myself to Trelawney, give you a big hug and cook you loads of comfort food xx

  11. "These wounds won't seem to heal
    This pain is just too real
    There's just too much that time cannot erase"

    the lyrics from this song struck me right down to my core John
    I feel your pain for all the deaths that have happened in your life
    as I feel the pain of Don dying...as if it happened yesterday, not 2 1/2 years ago

  12. You've experienced a lot of loss in a very short time--no wonder your heart feels so ragged.

    Time helps, as do purrs, licks, and wagging tails.
