My Little Boy

(Sterling Heights MI USA)

A sweet loving boy. I will always keep you in my heart. You meant the world to me. Words can not express the love I have for you. I loved you for 15 years, and now I don't know how to live without you.

When you left you took a chunk of my heart with you. Our home is an empty house.

I will always love you my baby <3

R.I.P Lucky Balou 12/18/1995 03/24/2011 You will be missed every day of my life, my sweet boy :( Mommy loves you boy!

To Janine, Lucky's Mom
by: Karen, Owner of Tiger

Janine, Be grateful and thankful for having Lucky for 15 whole years. He was really LUCKY and YOU TOO .... My Tiger had just turned 9 and I felt cheated when he died until I read of pet owners on this website whose pet doggies passed away far too early.

Honey, yes grieve, it's okay to do that for as long as ever but if you get another little honey bunny, you'll be distracted from your sorrow and your heart will heal a whole lot faster ..... hey! doesn't mean that you will forget Lucky. No way .... you will still cherish what you had with Lucky, but for your sake and for the sake of your heart and health too, you should consider moving on, even though you will initially find it hard.

And, when that new honey bunny comes, you are going to give so much love and care and attention that he/she will enjoy. You've got lots of love to give. Give it to a new pet. Peace and Love.....

To Lucky's Mom

Your Lucky was a beautiful little dog with the "kootish" looking face ever. I am deeply sorry to read of his passing. I can tell that you are aching tremendously for your sweetheart. Here is a prayer that someone sent to my box upon reading of my German Shepherd Tiger's passing. It sure helped to comfort me:

"We are grateful to You, Oh God, for creating all these beautiful and most loving and faithful pets that have shared so many years with us, for entrusting them to our care and for sustaining them in our love for a measure of time.

"We understand (but most of us don't) - that all lives must die. We all knew that this day would come but pushed the thought aside and yet, Oh God, we would have wanted one more day of love and play, one more evening of watching them gulp down their doggie dinner and one more night of loud burps, belly-tickles, stretches and cuddling."

Be grateful for the times you and Lucky shared. No one can ever take that away from you. Let his memory live on in your heart. I do hope that soon you will welcome into your home another sweetheart that needs lots of love and attention.

Some little sweetheart out there is craving what you have to give. And when you do get him, you know what? .... tell him all about the love that you and Lucky shared.

Two months today :'( 05/24/2011
by: Janine

I miss my boy Lucky. I miss my dear and faithful friend. We traveled through the years together, he and I, each watching the other grow older. He was the keeper of my heart - aware of my ups and downs, responsive to my needs, affectionate and true.

My life is different now without him. It's strange to come home and not hear his familiar bark, or see that tail wagging furiously back and forth - so happy just to see me. I sit, expecting him to run over and nudge me, or put his head on my lap, but, he doesn't come. He is not there. This place is not the same without him.

Still, I know that I was lucky to have him for so long. I keep telling myself that. But, whenever I feel like it, I'm going to have myself a good cry, and I won't be shamed by my tears. It's the least I can do to mourn such a loyal and devoted friend. <3 <3

I miss you more than ever my love :(

Love, Mommy

Sweet Little Angel

He was a lovely dog. What a lucky little guy to have a Mamma like you!

I understand
by: Anonymous

You'll never forget, and the memories you have will last your lifetime. Life continues no matter how sad you are. There's nothing you can do to bring back your friend. But, there are other buddies out there who need you just as much as you need them. Go get 'em.

You were such a handsome boy. I know that you loved your mama. Sleep with the angels, little one, and you will be reunited with your family one day.

1 month and 1 week :(
by: Janine

I didn't know that morning
What pain the day would bring,
When your little heart stopped beating
And I couldn't do a thing,
I'd tried so hard
But all in vain,
To try to make
You well again,
It broke my heart in two
When I saw you slip away,
You didn't want to go
You tried so hard to stay,
I saw that you were tired
And a cure was not to be,
So I held you in my arms
And cried "Lucky,
Please forgive me."
After 15 years
The time had come to part,
It eased your pain
But broke my heart,
If I could have one wish
A wish that would come true,
The only thing I'd wish for
Are my yesterdays with you,
I'll think about you everyday
Of that there is no doubt,
You were wonderful to live with
But so hard to live without.
I miss you so much!! :'(

Love Mommy

We love and miss him

He was blessed and fortunate to have a wonderful mommy.

3 Weeks today :'(
by: Janine

They come into our lives for such a short time-a time we wouldn't trade not even for a dime.

Then before you know it the years have flown beyond, then all of a sudden we're saying good-bye.

It wasn't that long ago we said our good-byes. We held on to you tight as you closed your eyes.

Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove into God's loving arms; in heaven above.

Over the days we've shed many tears but the memories we have will live on for years.

We feel your presence and we know that you are near. You're keeping us safe and calming our fears.

We think about memories from years past when you were young and strong and ran so fast.

We remember all the great times that we all had. How you always made us happy, never made us mad.

They were the best and happiest years we had. We'll always look back on them and never be sad.

We look forward to the time we'll be together again and we thank the Lord for such a great friend.

Now you run and play up in Heaven above cradled in God's arms covered with his love.

Playing by the Bridge, waiting for the day we come down through the meadow to the Bridge to stay.

The love that you showed us we'll never forget because to us you're one very special pet.

You're like a star in the dark of night always watching over us with the Lord's light.

So now we take time to remember our best friend who will always be with us, even to the end.

We'll always remember you the way you were-one little lovable, huggable pile of fur.


2 Weeks Today :(
by: Janine

I miss you so much Lucky. Mommy is so lost and confused, I don't know what to do. Every day I talk to you but there is no answer. I just need to know if you're happy up there. I wish I could see you again, my little boy. :( My heart breaks every day when I look at your spot and you're not there.
Love, Mommy <3

I'm so sorry for your loss :(
by: Janine

I'm so sorry you lost your little boy. I know what it's like. I still search the net on how to grieve :( I'm still lost without my little boy here with me. Having him for 15 years was best of my life. I still don't know how to live without him. I talk to him every day. I look at his pictures. I have his ashes with me :(

Stay strong. I'll keep you and your little boy in my prayers. God bless you!

I miss you so much! :(
by: Janine

I thought of you today. God it's so hard without you here. Mommy misses you so much. My little boy, sitting on my bed where you used to sleep next to Mommy. Looking at your spot and crying cause your not here with Mommy :( I love you so much my little boy. I will never forget you. You left your paw prints on my heart :'(

Love Mommy. <3

I miss my boy
by: Anonymous

I lost my boy on February 18th and it's taken me two months to search the net for how to grieve a pet. I had Ronin for ten years and in my house he was known as Little Boy. I miss Little Boy dearly and looking at your Little Boy instantly brought tears to my eyes. They are such sweet souls that with one small greeting can take the burden of life away.

Wanda, I'm so sorry for your loss :(
by: Janine

God, I thought this day would not come, but it did. I have never cried in my life like this. I know what you're going through :( It hurts so much, the pain is so unbearable :(

Stay strong, sweetie, I'll keep you in my prayers, and your little boy :(

Sorry for your loss of your little boy
by: Wanda

I know what you're going through. I just lost my little boy on Monday, March 28th, 2011. I haven't cried this much in a long time. But he's in a better place with lots of dog friends, food, water, sunshine, and pain-free.

Sorry for your loss
by: Anonymous

I'm really sorry for your loss. I know what it is like to lose a companion of so many years. Even though my doggy died almost 2 years ago, I still miss her extremely.

Stay strong and God bless!
