Rosa,

I am deeply sorry for your loss.

I would be dishonest to omit that I do love to read these tributes to our departed dogs. The range of personalities and behaviors and charm-the uncounted gifts the dogs offer every day-it all comes through in a farewell like Rosa to Eli.

Thank you for letting us see a bit of your big baby boy.

MJ

Thank you so much my friend. I'm so thankful to have this place and the people here. I've shared so much of his life and its been a pleasure always. Maybe his post will find some hope. DM is cruel what it does to the body but sometimes you just get lucky and are able to fight the good fight longer than anyone could imagine. Hopefully his thread will help others someday,

Rosa I am so sorry to hear this. Reading your past posts, I knew this was coming soon. It seems there is never enough time. I know you will miss him terribly.
I red your lovely tributes and stories of him, what a wonderful dog to have had in your life and heart.

Many hugs.

I'm so very sorry to hear this sad news, Rosa. Eli was such a sweet, lovable handsome dog and he was so lucky to have you as his mom. He had the best life that any dog could ever have and he loved his life, and you. Take care of yourself and know that a lot of people are thinking of you and sending loving, healing thoughts your way.

Rest in peace, Eli. angel

Thank you all so much. I so miss my boy. teary He was everything that was good in this world. I don't think I will ever have a better friend. I just loved to snuggle cuddle with him. He was so big and there was just so much to cuddle with. I so miss that look he'd give me when he just went poop. Funny how he'd smell it first and give me that look, so I'd know before the smell hit me. As if it were our little secret, I'd whisper "did you go poo poo? (short pause) Ok, Mommy got it" and I'd quickly get the stuff to clean it up. It was never a big deal and I am now so very thankful of that. It might sound strange to some people but I know the folks here will understand. I always felt it was an honor to be able to do this for him. That somehow by doing this it would help to pay back for all his years of dedication.

I really loved the way he loved his food. He never missed a meal and was always thrilled with whatever he found in his bowl.

And despite all his physical issues and pain, he always greeted me at the door. I think if he had to move a mountain to get to the door, he would have.

He spent most of his waking hours watching me. At the time I thought it was him that needed that assurance that I was there. Now I realize I benefited just as much from that connection as he did.

I so miss my boy. I know he is in Heaven and I am so thankful that G-d trusted me enough to raise that pup for Him.

It's been an honor for me to have each dog. Each dog has left a legacy for the next that comes. So, yes, I get it.

I was in the store today looking at the toys, I saw a light blue Kuala bear that Quinnie would have loved. I got all teary. I have to go and buy dog food. Because I still have dogs. But she loved her toys. And I would buy the ones with the sweetest faces for her. So, yeah, I still break down. I have a picture of her and Babsy on my desktop that I see every day when I log in. And their eyes stare at me. Losing dogs is so damn hard. It is worth it, having them. But, I dunno.
