My head looked like a brillo pad
DH gave me roses ... just because :)
Someone please take pity on me, and send me a small piece of pecan pie

Oh, I'm so sorry... it must be terrible to lose 2 so close together. My dogs are about a year apart in age and I realize I'll lose them probabaly around the same time. Makes me cry just thinking about it.

I can't find the hug simley anymore..

Three weeks ago, we had to put our beloved canine friend of almost 15 years to sleep because of her fast declining health. She was survived by our Dachshund who is 10 and our American Eskimo who is 14. In the last 2 weeks, our Eskie, named Igloo, became a different animal. She had had an appetite though not the same as before our oldest dog died and in the last week, just stopped eating. I tried coaxing her by boiling chicken and rice and she loved that. However not long after eating she threw it up.

We thought the first time was maybe because she had not eaten for a while and the amount that she ate maybe upset her stomach. After the second time, DH decided a trip to the vet was in order. We took her in yesterday and they wanted to keep her overnight to run tests and do an ultrasound. Sadly this morning we received the news that Igloo had cancer of the kidneys and a blockage in her colon. The vet said we could prolong the inevitable, but once again we had to make the difficult decision to let her go.

I'm sure Phoebe was there this morning to greet her long time friend at the Rainbow Bridge. Our dachshund is very lonely as he has lost his 2 life long friends.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Was she a Yorkie? She has the look of a cut down Yorkshire Terrier.

I know how hard it is to loose a pet. I once lost five in a six month period. My daughter had to call me while I was at WDW and tell me that I had lost one of my 16 year old champions. It was not totally unexpected, but still was very hard. Most of my remaining dogs are old as well so I am sure that we will have to face some tough losses in the days ahead.

I'm so sorry. Igloo is a beautiful pup, and look at that smile. I know she will be missed by her family.

Oh, sweet little Iggy! I remember the day she came home. I came home from school to this cute little dog, just sitting on the back of the couch. I couldn't imagine how anyone could give her up, she was shy, but very sweet. My cat Heathen was not not too thrilled with her, just as she wasn't with Phoebe, but in time, they all learned to get along and become one big happy family. It's hard to believe Heathen is the only one left! I'm going to miss that little white furball so much, but I take great comfort in knowing she's back with her "sister".

Love you and miss you Iggy!

I am so sorry. We also recently lost a beloved dog to cancer -- and he was only 3! It is so sad. Wishing you peace, and peace to your dachshund, too. (Our other dog has become "velcro dog" since our first one passed.)
