Dobie Wendel, Oct. 2005 - Jan. 2014 R.I.P. little buddy, you were the best, the smartest little dog I ever saw in my life.

You made me happy when I was sad, you kept me busy when I was bored. You were my best friend in life. Now that you are in heaven waiting for me, I will be with you soon.

I'm sorry, buddy, that I wasn't there for you when you needed me. You passed away so fast today. I was coming to get you.

I miss you and love you. This is so hard for me. What am I gonna do without you? You will never be forgotten. You are like a son to me. I can't stop crying. I feel it's my fault.

Dobie, I will always love you, little buddy. You are the world to me.

Rest in Peace

Your Daddy,
Timothy

I'm so sorry for your loss. You did all you could, and your baby knows it. I don't think he would want you to blame yourself.

May God walk with you.

So Sorry for Your Loss
by: Tim Vinge

We lost our bichon frise almost two years ago. Her name was Ruffles and she left us when she was 19 years old.

We loved her so much, and the loss was unbearable, but we made it through. We also have another little dog, a Shih Tzu named Sophie. She, like us, missed Ruffles when she left us.

My wife said that there would never be another Ruffles and we would not get another dog. Then one day I took her to a dog shelter and there was a small male Lhasa Apso hiding in the corner of the cage. My wife picked him up and he cuddled into her. My wife cried at that point and now we have another dog. His name is chip. We will never have another Ruffles but now we have a Chip.

I am sure Ruffles would approve. We have re-socialized Chip and he loves his new family very much. Dogs have a special sense between them. I am sure that Ruffles talks to Chip every day even though she is in a different place.

If you can see your way through at some point, go to a dog shelter and in honor of Dobie help another poor lost soul. You will not regret this.

All dogs are connected with us in a very special way. Look to re-establish this special connection or love by helping another dog.
