Oh, Bonnie, I am SO sorry! I know there's nothing I can say to make you feel better.
Oh Bonnie - I am so very sorry.
Dear Bonnie ~ I am SO sorry for your loss! We never really know how sick animals are sometimes. Sadly, dogs and cats get cancer more than we ever realized. Our son lost his beautiful German Shepherd a few years ago. There had been no signs of illness until the very day he became distressed and it turned out to be cancer.My heart goes out to you and your family.Hugs, Karen
I'm sorry to hear of your loss.
Oh, my heart breaks for you. He gave it the very best he had, and he was loved.
Bonnie, I am terribly sorry to hear that your Buddy had cancer and am keeping you and yours and Buddy in my thoughts. Sadly, pets such as dogs and cats get cancer too, more so than we had ever thought before! Our son lost his beautiful German Shepherd who was a "police officer" a few years ago.Take care!Hugs, Karen
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Buddy. I know what it is like and it never is easy. I have have made a mini scrapbook of our 3 kitties that we have lost and love to look back and remember their quilt habits and see their pictures. Take care.
If Buddy had been a quilter:he would have had all the stash he ever needed;his bobbin would never have run out midseam;his points would always have matched; andhis borders would always have hung straight...He was a lucky dog to be loved and cared for, and helped to cross over gently.Sympathies, Bonnie
I'm so sorry! RIP Buddy. :o(
I am so sorry to hear your news, I know what its like to loose a faithful framily pet. My thoughts are with you and your family.....
Bonnie, I'm really sorry about Buddy. Our pets are always like members of the family.
I'm sorry Bonnie. My daughter lost a dog to cancer too and it was very sad.
:( My heart is hurting for you! Very sorry for your loss!
oh man, it is so hard to say good bye. I'm so sorry. You and your family will be in my prayers. I hope you are able to be comforted and then the day will come that you can enjoy the good memories you have of this sweet, sweet dog.
i'm so very sorry. i lost my dog just a couple months ago so i sure can sympathize. cherish your memories!
Bonnie I'm so sorry to hear about Buddy.
Bonnie, So Sorry to hear about Buddy. Our 4-legged kids are special to us and we hurt when they hurt, but they can't tell us where it hurts!He'll be waiting for you across the Rainbow Bridge!http://www.rainbowsbridge.com/
I'm so very sorry for your loss, Bonnie. God be with you!
I know he had a good like with a Mommy like you... Hugs
no words...just *hugs*
I am so sorry to hear that. My thoughts are with you today!
So sorry to hear of your loss. Our furry friends are the best ones. They are always happy to see you.ttfn :) Yuki
So sorry Bonnie. I hope Buddy is already back to chasing and having fun in his next adventure.
Ohhh Bonnie, I'm so sorry. RIP Buddy.
Oh, so sorry...
So sorry for your loss, it's so hard to lose your dog.
I'm so sorry Bonnie. Dogs are furry family members, and it's heartbreaking to lose one. Big hugs.
Oh dear...that's tough. So sorry.
Im so sorry about Buddy. He was a lucky dog to have a good home and a family who loved him. Remember, like the movie says, "All dogs go to heaven."
So sorry to hear Bonnie-been there recently myself. At least Buddy is no longer suffering. Big hugs.
I am so sorry to hear about the cancer. I just lost a stray (that I kept for 1 1/2 years and fell in love with) to cancer March 23. Funny thing, I just cried about losing her last night. I didn't realize cancer was so prevalant in animals. I was torn between putting her down and letting her live it out. Such a hard decision either way. My prayers are with you as I know how hard it is. I also now buy my other cats blue buffalo as they donate to cancer cure for animals. There's nothing to say because over time there's still tears. The memories are really all we have about anything and those stay with us forever. So, focus on those fun times with your memories.
Oh Bonnie, I'm so sorry. We have a kitty battling cancer right now, too and will have to put her down soon...I hate to think of it! And this so soon after your grandfather. I'm sooo sorry. You're in my thoughts and prayers.
Dear Bonnie, So sorry to read about Buddy. You are in my prayers. There was an excellent article in Guideposts last month about pets going to heaven. Rest assured your Buddy is there!Hugs, Cathy
So sorry to hear about Buddy...I know how it hurts to lose a pet! We never forget them.
So sorry to hear of your loss recently of your grandfather and now your beloved friend Buddy. His tail is surely thumping harder now. Now that he is out of pain and chasing butterflies in beautiful fields. Take care.
Bonnie, I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. Dogs are such wonderful companions, and I can tell you love Buddy very much. He must have been an exceptional "family member."
Bonnie,I'm so sorry for your loss of Buddy. I prayed that God would heal him and guess he decided to heal him by taking him home. I will pray for your comfort.Love, Cheri
I'm so sorry for you, Bonnie.Here is a poem for you and I hope it help You a little bit in this sad timeWhen tomorrow stars without me,don't think we're far apart.Everytime you think on me,I'm right here - in your heardRun fast over the Rainbow- Bridge and tell Frida, Ecco and Brightlight I still miss them so muchHugGunda
Sorry for your loss, but happy for the wonderful memories that will fill your heart as you think of him.
I'm so sorry Bonnie. It is the hardest thing to have to put down a pet. Buddy is now at the Rainbow Bridge waiting for you.
Buddy will always live in a special corner of your heart, Bonnie. Just whistle and he'll hear you...
Oh Bonnie, I'm very sad for you and your loss. A little too much loss going on right now. Sending a warm hug and prayers.
Oh Bonnie, my heart breaks for you. We just lost our little Birdo in March. No words, just thoughts for you and your family.
I'm sooo sorry Bonnie! The loss of a pet is so sad.
I'm so sorry for you. Dogs are wonderful friends who are always there to love you unconditionally. The memories will be with you foreverHugsChris x
Words can not express my sorrow. Our pets are our best friends and companions and we get to enjoy their love for such a short time.God Bless You.
Our 4 legged kids leave big paw prints on our hearts when they pass. Know that he was loved and cared for, my heart is aching for you, big hugs from the west coast.
I am very sorry, Bonnie!! There are no good words at times like these!!!
take comfort in knowing that Buddy's pawprints will be forever on your heart...
Hugs Bonnie.... I'm sure is chasing a squirrel in heaven :o)
so sorry, thinking of you
Bonnie, my deepest sympathies on your recent losses. I was out of town a couple of days and couldn't believe how much has gone on in your life. Sending hugs and prayers to you and your familyPeggy
I am sorry.....you did the best for Buddy.
I, too, am so sorry for your loss. We lost our little Jessica last month: a void that can never be completely filled.
This is so sad, Bonnie. I am terribly sorry about Buddy.
very sad. Sorry
Hugs...the loss of a beloved pet is such a hard thing to digest, especially on top of the loss of your grandfather. Perhaps they are together sending you love as you go through the grieving process......
Bonnie, I'm deeply sorry for Buddy's loss. It is not easy to say good-bye to a loved one, even when we know it's the right thing to do. I'm keeping you and your family in my heart right now.
Sending hugs, Bonnie. It's never easy to say good-bye to our pets. They become members of our family and will always remain in our hearts and minds.
Oh I am so sorry to hear that!!
Bonnie, I am so very sorry for your loss, I know how your heart is hurting. Our pets are just such a part of our lives, and when they hurt we hurt. Having just lost our 19 yr. old cat last week, it is still so fresh in my mind and my heart. Only time can ease the emptiness, and then it flashes back when we least expect it! Buddy is not hurting anymore, he is healed and playing with my pet in a better place. ((HUGS)) coming your way!
It still miss my little Penny who has been gone these two years. I sure hope there are dogs in heaven.
Ohhh Bonnie, I'm so sorry for your loss. Take heart knowing that Buddy had a wonderful life with you, and he's not suffering any longer. We love our pets so, and it's so hard when they're gone.You're in my thoughts hon.*hugs*Tazzie
So sorry to hear about Buddy. Losing a pet is losing a friend and a part of the family.Ruth
So sorry. We never have them long enough.
So sorry - my thoughts are with you and your family.
We never have them long enough, do we? But that is the price we pay for their great companionship. Having just recently lost both our dogs, I can only say "I feel for you". Time will enable you to eventually talk about Buddy with a smile (and maybe a little tear). Glad to hear that you did the right thing by him.
So sorry Bonnie, may you have many wonderful memories of his life.
Bonnie, I am so sorry for you and your family! We lost two cats to cancer. Both were part of our family for sixteen years. It's so hard to let them go. May Buddy be always in your heart.
I am so sorry, Bonnie. I have not experienced the loss of a pet, but have seen many others go through this. It's not easy, but I'm glad you have 10 years of memories of Buddy. firstname.lastname@example.org
I too am so very sorry to hear about Buddy.Keep all the good memories in your heart.hugsChristine
Hi Bonnie,I am so sorry for the loss of your Buddy. At the very least you now know why he wasn't bouncing back after that bite. Sniff...Vicky F
Oh Bonnie - so sorry to hear about Buddy - sending cyber hugs to you. Take care. Jane x
Bonnie, in 2002 we lost a beloved dog to spleen cancer and had to make this difficult decision. I know how hard this must be, and I am so sorry you have lost your darling Buddy. So sorry.........
oh, Bonnie.... I am SO sorry for the loss of your dear friend Buddy....There are no words to make you feel better, but know that you were both lucky to have each other in your lives.Hugs and prayersSheilaC
Oh Bonnie, I am so sorry to read of Buddy's passing. My heart aches for you. Dogs are such good friends, excellent listeners and constant companions. They love us unconditionally. The only fault dogs and cats have is that they don't live long enough. RIP Buddy! ;-(
Oh Bonnie, you know there is a special heaven for dogs who have been such good and loyal friends to their people on earth. Our little Black Lab, Lucy died this weekend at age 15; she had been struggling with various "old dog" issues and finally,just walked herself down to the tree line at the edge of the soybean field; she laid down in the nice tall cool grass, and gently went to eternal sleep. When we found her, we thought for a moment she actually was just sleeping. Since she chose that spot, that is where we buried her. Yes, like you, we are sad but we also remember what a delightful dog she was and what a joy it was to have her in our family for all these years. Wishing you comfort and peace in your sorrow for Buddy.---
I'll be praying for you and your family. I've had to do the same before.
Bonnie..It took me quite awhile to feel normal after I lost my dog Domino. It hurt more than I thought it would. Take the time to grieve, both your grandfather and your Buddy. (I ended up fostering 6 puppies as therapy.... not necessarily something I would recommend though!)Barbara PCentreville, Va
I'm so sorry, Bonnie. Hugs.
Oh, Bonnie,I'm so sorry. I went through that kind of loss with my dear Spot in January and I know a bit of how you must feel. Know that lots of us are grieving for and with you.
So very sorry for your losses. Please take care of yourself.Best Wishes.Cindy B.
I'm so sorry. I know how you must feel. My beloved golden retriever Gunny passed away 2 weeks ago and I am so very sad. He gave my husband and me great joy. I know the Lord will rejoin us with our loving pets someday. Such love can never die.
Bonnie you have had 2 to many furbaby losses...my heart goes out to you...your memories will be forever...hugs
You've had a sad few weeks - make sure you take some time to let the sadness pass through. Best wishes.
I'm so sorry about your loss, so much this month, But as you say They love good lives. A big hug.Maria
Thinking of you! You did the very best thing for Buddy, took away his pain.
Oh Bonnie...I'm so sorry to read your news. Buddy has obviously left big footprints on your heart. (((hugs)))
Oh Bonnie, I am so sorry! Our pets do become a member of our family, my heart goes out to you.
We are never loved more unconditionally, more freely and with less judgment than by a loyal pet. You and Buddy were lucky to have each other and you will always have him in your heart.
Oh Bonnie I am so sorry for your loss my thoughts are with you. I am an avid follower and have made many of your quilts, I have never written to you but I feel today is the day I need to tell you how sorry I am for you at your loss. My heart goes out to you.
So sorry to hear about Buddy. I know that losing a pet is like losing a good friend. But it's easier to deal with it, when you know he has lived a good life.Take care,Laila
oh Bonnie. I am soo so very sorry. my heart is with you. hugs from here.
Poor guy. It sounds like you made the right decision although it is never easy.Love ya Bons!
I'm so sorry, Bonnie. It's hard to give up our furry friends even though we know it's for the best. Hugs to you:)Vicki
I'm so sorry for your loss; I hope he's running joyfully in Heaven with my Quincy who we lost in October--the sweetest dog I ever knew.
Bonnie, I'm so sorry to hear about Buddy. Our pets are part of our family, and it's difficult when they leave us.
I am so sorry to read about your loss. Our dogs give us so much unconditional love. We had to put our golden/collie down over twenty years ago and I still miss her. My sympathy to you
so sorry Bonnie. Sending hugs.
I'm so sorry, Bonnie. :(
Bonnie - I am so sorry about Buddy. I just had to put my cat Tula to sleep two weeks for severe renal failure and I just know that both our furkids are waiting for us at The Rainbow Bridge. Take care of yourself...
Bonnie, I am very sorry that Buddy is gone. I hope you will adjust to this eventually, but it is hard on our hearts when our lovely pets pass on. Liz
So very sorry to hear about Buddy.
I am so sorry about Buddy. I know what a terrible loss this is for you. I will keep you and Buddy in my thoughts. Just remember he's gone to the Rainbow Bridge and again is whole, young and without pain.
Sorry for your loss of dear Buddy. It's always tough to lose our fur babies. Hugs & good thoughts to you.
Any dog born on Valentine's Day was bound to be a sweetheart. So sorry to hear about Buddy.Thinking of you, Susan (UK).
Oh I'm so sorry to hear this... We really do love our pets, don't we ? They are family and it's hard to see them suffer or die. We've lost our rabbit this year too, and I was heartbroken. Now time has got to do its thing.Lots of hugs.
Dear Bonnie,I'm so sorry to hear about your dog Buddy. It's so hard to lose our furry friends. I know you will miss him so much. Please take care and know that he had a good life and you did all you could for him at the end.
Bonnie,Buddie is with my sweet cat,Tiny. She loved dogs and will give him lots of love.
Just more than the fella could handle. Hugs, Bonnie.
It is SOO HARD TO LOSE A PET, especially one that has been in your lives for any amount of time. ((((HUGS AND PRAYERS))) Coming your way.
Bonnie, I am so very sorry. Both for your grandfather and for your dear friend Buddy. Thank you for sharing Buddy with us all, we all grieve with your loss. Take time to grieve it is important.
No...... I love seeing Buddy every time I go to your web page. He reminds me of our Zep, who often hears "Hey Buddy" instead of his own name. Your memories will help you mend, but he will never be forgotten.
I'm so very sorry. : (
