Toto, My Dear Schnauzer (Feb 2001-30 Oct 2011)

I miss so much of you Toto.

My only regret is not bringing you back from the vet hospital. You struggled to follow, but you were unwell. I didn't wish to leave you there, but I didn't expect you to die after I left.

I knew you wanted to go home and now you are home, but only your ashes.

Thank you, Paul.

My dear schnauzer Toto's ashes are placed at my home. Occasionally, I will stroke the urn and talk to him. He always has a place, and lives forever in my heart.

So Sorry
by: Paul Masters

I feel your pain. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss.

I lost my little girl Mia a few months ago and still grieve for her. She was a mini Schnauzer 8 year old with liver disease.

It does get easier, but I don't think it will ever go away, and I don't think I want it to. Every time I see or hear of a Schnauzer, it chokes me up with memories of my little baby.

We love these little beasts so much that when they pass, they tear our hearts out.
My thoughts are with you.

Thank you, Sharon. I am trying very hard to come to terms without Toto around. I still call his name during the morning and evening feed to the other 2 mongrels. I will be collecting his ashes, probably this Fri or Sat. He has a place at home, and forever in my heart.

I am so sorry for your loss. This is the first time since I have come on the site that I have seen another Schnauzer. I lost my Carley (schnauzer) back in May. It was so sad.

I know what you are going through. They are such a sweet breed. I have had four of them and they all have been different personality wise. She was the first girl I had and I loved all of them, but she was very special to me. I am getting a puppy in the spring and somehow I know she would approve.

Don't let anyone tell you not to be sad. Toto is a member of your family. Grieve for as long as you need.

Someday, we will look back and remember all the silly things they did to make us laugh and all the unconditional love they gave us. Also, we know in our hearts that they will be waiting for us at Heaven's Gate!

Take care.
