Dear Frisbee

by Mienli
(Sydney)

Frisbee was born 17 March 1997 and we had to make the difficult decision of putting her to sleep yesterday, 7 January 2011. We had her for almost 14 years. At the last days she was diagnosed with lymphoma and she also had arthritis. Slowly she had lost feeling in the lower half of her body. We watched her deteriorate but thought she would snap out of it and be healthy again...

Just wanted to say how much we love her. She was the first that greeted me in the morning and the last to say goodnight. Always happy and joyful and loved her walks. She loved visits from grandpa every Monday evening and loved when the lawn mower would start. She loved tennis balls and basketballs and ripping her soft toys to shreds. She was super intelligent and very cheeky!

She loved being involved in everything and also loved us. She always protected us and never failed to make us laugh. I remember when we used to play hide and seek, she would always win!

We have been shedding tears and haven't stopped thinking about you. We know you are in a better place but we can't help but see that you are missing in every aspect of our lives. Our routines are now harder as you are not there...

We keep trying to think positive that she is in a better place. This is more pain than bearable, I've never been so sad before and cried so many tears. Guess we will say goodbye for now.

Dear Frisbee, we love you and miss you so much already, we will see you in Heaven. xoxo

Frisbee

Mienli, I am so sorry for your loss. I understand the pain you are going through. We lost our companion Sam on 12/26/10. You are so right that our routines are much different without them. I'm trusting that Frisbee and Sam are in a better place and waiting for us to join them later.

To little Max the pug
by: Teresa

Your poem about your Max was so fitting.

It is short and to the point on how much grief we go through when we have to say goodbye.

I truly believe that Max, Frisbee and Bodie are with God, romping and playing together until that wonderful day when we can all be together once again.

Words could never describe the pain and grief we experience when we have to make that awful decision even though we know it's the right thing to do. I've read that it's the ultimate show of love when we do make that decision, but it doesn't make it any easier.

To Max, Frisbee, and all the doggy Moms and Dads, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I knew it would be the saddest day of my life, but I still couldn't have known just how hard it would be.

Again, I'm so sorry and so grateful to everyone who contributes to these pages. It truly does help so much when we share our grief.

Sorry. I Feel Your Pain

I feel your pain. We put down our 14 year old Lab today. The hardest thing I've done for a long time. They are truly part of the family. He was the best dog I've ever had. I miss him terribly. Hang in there.

Beautiful Frisbee

I read your wonderful tribute to Frisbee, and what an amazing friend to you and your family! I am going through the same feelings with my Lucky. I can relate to what you said about the last at night and first in the morning! That was true for me, too. Lots of love, Carla

I share your sorrow

I am so sorry for you. I too had to make that decision for my little pug Max, November 16, 2010.
I'm 67 years old and haven't stopped crying yet.
I am quite confident that Frisbee and Max are romping and playing together somewhere wonderful.
Martin Luther said "Be comforted, little dog, thou too in the resurrection shall have a tail of gold." The void that our "fur babies" leave is so hard to bear. I'll share a poem that I know you will understand.

A heart of gold stopped beating
Two shining eyes at rest
God broke my heart to prove
He only takes the best.
God knows you had to leave me
But you did not go alone
For part of me went with you
The day he took you home.

Peace and Blessings be with you.
