" Thank you my darling Nia ...you rest in peace now "
..
Earlier this week, Nia had left us to go to her doggy heaven.
For the past 12 years, she had brought so much love & joy into my life.
I'm deeply saddened and going to miss everything about her...especially
the distinctive scratching noise she made on her favorite pillow.
Allow me to take some time off to mourn the loss.
Thank you for your kind understanding everyone...

~XOXO*

Wow! Just yesterday i was telling another blog friend that i don't know what i would do without my dog, Ginger. I am REALLY SORRY for your loss. As someone who is madly in love with mine, i can only imagine your grief. Lots of hugs to you. xx

Bob said...

Losing pets is just so devastating because their love is simple and unconditional.
So, so sorry for your loss.

Style Porn said...

The best thing about dogs is that they don't fear mortality. Nia was probably enjoying the moment up until the very end. It doesn't make it any easier to say goodbye, but at least it eases the heart to think that here was a creature who knew no emotional pain, anxiety, or sadness. She lived like we should all be lucky enough to live--completely in the moment.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh Lenore, I'm so sorry. Look at her cute puggy face. I dread the day when our cats leave us. Big hug!!

Lenore ~

I'll never understand why our favorite little 'loves' have to live such short lives...one of life's unfair realities.

You know how much I adore pugs and consider mine as family (or rather, my firstborn!). So sad for you and the saying good-bye to your Nia...

Thinking of you,
Melissa

Hi! I'm your newest follower. I'm so sorry about your doggie. People who don't own pets just can't understand the love we have for our furbabies.

Coté Provence said...

I am so sorry for your loss. I can completely relate to you right now. I lost my beloved dog, Coco, few years ago. I was in a lot of pain. But time, somehow has a way of healing. He is always in my heart. We have now Max to share our joy with. He is adorable and We adore him. But Coco will always be my little baby and has a special place in my heart.

Juanita said...

My empathies and commiseration to you - I understand your sadness and loss having lost our little Schatzi in May. The sense of grief is souless and unbearable, and I'm sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts.

jdavissquared said...

I'm so sorry, dear. :(

Anthony said...

I'm very sorry for your loss, Lenore. We lost our puppy of 12 years last February, and we still miss him. The pain eventually subsides, but the love and sweet memories live on forever...

I believe that Nia knew how much she was loved, and that, because the feeling was surely mutual, she wouldn't want to see you suffering. So, whenever possible, just give a little smile or a laugh in her honor.

Peace & love,
Anthony

I bet you gave her a wonderful life, one she won't forget. Remember good thoughts...

Terribly sad when a pet you have had for so long dies! What wonderful memories you must have! Have a great weekend!

nora said...

Oh god.. I'm so sorry dear Lenore... I guess there is no way of making you feel better about this but as another person who lost her companion long before, I can say that you must be proud of yourself for giving such a joyful and happy life to this special creature of yours... I'm sure she was loved a lot and taken good care of.

Hope you'll feel better in the shortest time,

Love,

Nora

Hi sweetheart,
I know what Nia means to you although I did not have the chance to meet her. I remembered the passing of another, pudpud and the how hard it was to let him go at that time. How he waited for you to tell him its ok.
My thoughts are with you, Nia and Pudpud.
God blessed the faithfully departed.

Mo Pie, Please said...

I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how hard it is to lose such a sweet and loving family member. Most of my pets growing up didn't last long before they ran away or had to go so I've never personally dealt with this kind of a loss yet. But I fear it. Hang in there!

Joyce said...

My heart goes out to you on the passing of Nia. It is hard to lose our pets. She was a good pal to you and will be watching over now.

I still miss our Kelly and she has been gone since January. xo
