S: Sadly, Chuckles passed away this morning at 9.25am. He had collapsed and the vets could not revive him. Even as the cancer was untreatable, I wish that I could has time to really say goodbye.

It was all too sudden. I feel very empty now without him. I wish that I could have been with him during his last hour so that he wouldn't have felt so alone. I hope he didn't think that we abandoned him.

I wish that there was more I could do to save him. He was my very best friend. I could talk to him and I loved going for long walks with him and we would sit down and look at the sky. I miss the tapping of his feet whenever he walks around. I miss him jumping up, wagging his tail and whinning whenever I return home. I miss him barking at strangers who walk past. I miss him nudging me for attention. I miss him coming in between me and the cats whenever I pat them.

I've had him for 8years and now I don't know what to do without him. The first thing I do whenever I come home was to pat Chuckles and sit beside him. Now, what do I do? Whenever I'm stressed out with school or upset, he used to be my comfort. I really have no idea how to live without him. I miss him so much and I wish that he didn't have to go so fast...

I am so sorry to hear your news.

No matter how they pass, it is always too soon and there is never enough time to say goodbye.


"There is one best place to bury a dog.
"If you bury him in this spot, he will
come to you when you call - come to you
over the grim, dim frontier of death,
and down the well-remembered path,
and to your side again.

"And though you call a dozen living
dogs to heel, they shall not growl at
him, nor resent his coming,
for he belongs there.

"People may scoff at you, who see
no lightest blade of grass bent by his
footfall, who hear no whimper, people
who may never really have had a dog.
Smile at them, for you shall know
something that is hidden from them,
and which is well worth the knowing.

"The one best place to bury a good
dog is in the heart of his master."

--- Ben Hur Lampman ---
from the Portland Oregonian Sept. 11, 1925

Farewell Chuckles, be at peace.

We are so sorry about Chuckles. Our Mom lost a good friend named Ringo right before we came to be with her. He was a boxer and was very dear to her and she says she still thinks of him. It is hard to believe now, but she said to tell you time has a way of healing...just know that Chuckles is in a good place and he won't have to hurt anymore...

I'm so sorry to hear about your sweet boy Chuckles. I've heard that losing a dear pet can be harder than losing a human family member...and I believe it from experience. You'll definitely find support from this group since we all face the same loss of our little ones. Eventually your hurt will heal and you'll be able to open your heart to another dog again. I've been through it, and bringing another needy animal into your life can be incredibly healing, but it has to be the right time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

Dear S,

I heard about the sad news. I haven't got to know Chuckles but I'm touched by your post.

We offer condolences to your loss.

I'm sure Chuckles will be better over the rainbow bridge.. it's very hard to lose a beloved furry friend..

I'm sure Chuckles understand and he'll visit you through your dreams which he would let you know he'll be happy and will be watching over you.

Take time to heal.. it's never easy to lose someone you love..

Toffee and mom and dad.

Stanley said...

So sorry to hear about Chuckles. I too lost my Airegirl, Rosie, back in February. I was bereft, and the house was way too quiet. It was not in the plans to get another pup so soon, but can't imagine life without Stanley now.

Love and prayers for you and the cats.

Run like the wind, Chuckles!! My Rosie will definitely be wanting to meet you at the Bridge.
