A very sad thing happened

It was just last month, I saw a bloggie friend's sad post about her dog. She is a super vibrant and gorgeous girl, and I was so sad to read her dog had recently passed away.

And now, I'm writing to let you know that my Doggie Darling has gone too.

My heart is very heavy, and I know a lot of you guys loved seeing her gorgeous big smile when she appeared in my photos. Staffie Dogs always have fun, that's for sure.

Doggie Darling (we think) had a very quick moving brain lesion, or tumour, and lived only 2 and a half years with us, but made Husbie and I so happy and we loved her so much. We'll continue loving her, even though she's gone.

With much sadness,
xoxo

  1. Oh, I am so, so sorry to hear your terrible news. She was a beautiful creature. I swear in some ways it's worse than losing humans. I'm going to go give my staffie dog a big hug now.

  7. Animals leave a huge empty space in our lives when they die... Our little cat was hit by a car 2 years ago and we still think of him every day. But it gets easier as time passes, the happy and beautiful moments remain.

  8. Im so very sorry for your loss. I think it's harder losing your dog than people sometimes. Staffy's are the best dogs! Just know you gave Doggie Darling the best life ever, and spoilt it more than anyone else could've.

  11. Veronica, I am so sorry to hear about Doggie Darling. She always brightened up your photos so much - she had so much love for you! That is sad news. My thoughts are with you.

  12. Oh Veronica, what devastating news. I am so very, very sorry. Staffies are the greatest dogs ever and you had one of the very best. I'm so glad that she was chosen by you to become a part of your family - you gave her the biggest, brightest, happiest most loved life a dog could have. Her photos and your stories always brightened my day, making me smile and laugh on days I'd rather cry. I feel a bit silly having a little cry over a dog I never met but I know how special dogs are and how they touch our lives. She was and will always be a very special, very loved and very good dog. I wish I was close enough to give you a hug but send all my love instead xx

  19. Oh I so very sad for you and your husband right now, losing a dog is losing a big part of your family. I found that coming home to a quiet house instead of the excited thumping a tail was the worst part for many months. Take care xx

  27. Oh, Veronica! This is such terribly sad news. :( I so enjoyed seeing Doggie Darling here. One of the most adorable and smiley dogs ever!

    Although she was only with you a short time, she couldn't have had better parents than you and Husbie. You certainly gave her a full and loving life.

  28. I read your blog, but I don't think I've ever commented. I'm mostly a lurker. But, I'm so sorry for your loss :( As an animal lover, I cannot imagine how you must feel.

  29. oh no, i am so very sad for you. i don't really comment much on your blog but i follow you and loved seeing pictures of your Doggie Darling. she was a gorgeous gorgeous girl. like you say, staffies are so much fun and have such wonderful characters. my hubbie and i lost our girl, Mimi, less than a year ago, and the grief was immense for both of us. it is still hard and my heart aches whenever i see a pic of her, but with time the pain does slowly lessen. how sad she only lived 2 1/2 years.. not fair :( big hugs to you both x

  30. I am so sorry for your loss. Dogs can be such a wonderful part of our lives and yet they do leave such big holes in our hearts when they leave us. Doggie Darling was a lucky dog to have had a wonderful home with you and your husband.

  31. I'm so sorry about it :( I have to confess one of the things that made me add your blog to my Google reader was her. I loved to see her in the pictures.

  32. Oh my god I am so so sorry! Staffy's are the best dogs in the whole wide world. Our first was put down due to cancer when I was in year 10 and it was the worst day of my life. We were lucky enough to have 13 years with her. I can't even imagine what it feels like to lose your companion after only 2.5 years. She was a gorgeous dog and brought a smile to my face every time she appeared on your blog. My heart goes out to you and your husband!

  34. Aaah crudo news, I really feel for you guys. My kitty died when he was only a few years old and even thought it was 6 or so years ago it still makes me a bit sad to think about. But sometimes he comes back in dreams which is nice!

  39. Sitting here in tears over the loss of a dog I'd never met. Please know that seeing Doggie Darling's lovely smiley face often made a crappy day far brighter. Thank you for sharing Doggie Darling with us, my thoughts are with you and your Husbie. Lots of cyber hugs and love.

  41. Just catching up on my RSS feeds and read your very sad news. Strange timing, because a close friend of mine just recently lost her doggie friend too, unexpectedly. These events break my heart, as a pet and animal lover, knowing it is so special to be able to form a close friendship with another species.

    My friend (and her husband) took time out to re-assess and think about what really makes her happy in life. They have made some changes based on this, including moving house, to a place where they have more friends within walking distance. Now is a good time to think about happiness and the people who will help you find it again.

    And... not now, but in a little while, when the depth of grieving is over, see the film Red Dog. It's a beautiful Aussie film about a how a dog changes a whole town. It will make you laugh AND cry, but you will love it, I'm sure ; )

  42. I'm so sorry for you both. I've been reading your blog for the last few months and your pooch's happy grin always made me smile. I have a staffie too and I know how much love they give you and I can't imagine how happy she was to both have you as her Mum and Dad xxx

  45. i'm just catching up and i'm so sad to hear about doggie darling. her happiness jumped out through the screen whenever she graced your blog.

    the same thing happened to us with our little layla cat, something a vet sees once in a career, so my heart goes out doubly to you.
