Loss

My dog Rudy lost his battle with cancer and congestive heart failure today. It's a great loss, and the house is rather empty without him. He was a wonderful boy even in the midst of all his treatments, medications, pokings, and proddings. My wife and I will sorely miss our beautiful boy.

The above picture was taken by my wife. Rudy was known for jumping up in his favorite tree trying to get closer to the squirrels and birds who seemed to tease him so much, and Joanne was able to capture one of those moments.

My heart goes out to you and your wife. It is like losing a family member.

I came here via Pin Tangle, how very sad to find this on my first visit to your blog. Dogs become so much part of one's life and family, their loss is enormous, and I'm sorry for you.

I'm so sorry for your loss... I lost my cat of 16+ years this week also, and he was such a good boy through a year of kidney disease and pokings and proddings too, and I miss him so much.

My heart is breaking for you....I lost my Bird-man about a year ago after 12 years. It leaves a hole in the family.

I've not made it past the first post (I came via Pin Tangle too).
