I don't get here as much as I used to but I wanted to share with those of you not on Facebook.

On March 29th I lost my mom at the age of 91. It was not a surprise, her health was failing rapidly the last month or two but it's still incredibly difficult to lose your last living parent.


Today I sent Dante to the Bridge after 12 years and 11 months with me and at the age of 13+ years.

My heart is pretty broken at this point, Kaos will help with this wub

To lose so much so fast must be shattering. Your mother's distinguished age and also Dante's are facts, but I doubt that they lessen the pain.

Please accept my sincere condolences.

Ah Barb, what a rough time. Your Mom and Dante were both fortunate to have you in their long lives. I'm glad you have Kaos. I, too, am glad you posted although the news is tough.

I lost my mom and then Kaiser a year apart. Even though we know it's coming we are never prepared - and the loss of a parent and of a beloved dog are both a hurt like no other. My thoughts and prayers go out to you hugging

I'm so sorry, Barb. This is a really tough thing to go through, but I'm so glad that you have Kaos there to give kisses and provide comfort to you. That is such a sweet picture of your mom and Dante. They look so happy. Take care and know that we are all thinking of you during this sad time.

Barb, I am so sorry. It's so incredibly difficult to lose your mom and Dante almost at the same time. I lost my mom two years ago and it still hurts, I miss her every day... Hugs.
