So Many Furriends…

Is it just me? Or has Blogville and its followers lost an awful lot of furriends lately?

Seems like every day I learn of another dear one who’s crossed the Bridge.

And it makes me so very sad.

My heart goes out to each and every one of you. To suffer such a loss is traumatic. And I feel your pain.

Not having my boy beside my office chair every day is like a bad dream. A nightmare from which I never wake up.

To those of you who’ve lost a loving furriend, my thoughts are with you.

Just as I know your thoughts are with me and the Dad Peep.

 

About The Scottie Chronicles

The Scottie Chronicles began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. He passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty canine cancer that took him far too early. He would have been 10 years old in March 2016. The Scottie Chronicles is dedicated to Stuart and the joy he shared with everyone who met him or saw him from afar. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    Your heartfelt message today is much appreciated. We often don’t know when our furriends time it will be to cross The Bridge. Sometimes we do. That is why we should make every single day they are with us count.

    Yes…part of ones heart is torn away when a fur baby has to leave. It hurts. And so much in our daily lives is impacted by the loss. Is the love we shared worth the heartbreak? Yes, I suppose it is. In this lifetime I have been blessed with 6 wonderful Scotties. Before them, as a teen I had a special poodle gal that went everywhere with me. Yes, on dates even. Then came the Scotts. I have 2 of the 6 now. They are ‘seniors’. And every day I tell them how much I love them and thank them for sharing their ‘earth’ time with me. I dread the time when they will have to leave us. sigh.
    Your Stuart has brought so much joy and even laughter to so many because you were kind enough to share your precious scotty. Thank you mom peep. We have shed tears along with and for you. In Stuarts short life he was ‘loved’ by many. That’s a lot to say for a little 22 pounds of scotty boy!

  3. It’s sad, not just Blogville but with so many bloggers…………(I follow over 200 blogs)……it’s every where 😦 DakotasDen

    It just reminds me how much we have to make the most of every day… Stuart was a special pal to all of us; we’ve all shed tears! His spirit is still with you, and he waits for your reunion one day. Meanwhile none of us can live saying oh no, any day now. We have to live and love and laugh each day with the doggo we still have, or with the memories of those who passed.
    Arroooo peeptress and dad.

    Mom here. I am afraid I will become completely overwhelmed by all the sadness. I have to keep some perspective by knowing all our furriends were here for a purpose. We served them a good life and they gave us joy and a reason to live sometimes. My sweet Elsa’s 9th birthday was yesterday. Even though she wasn’t here physically, her spirit stays on. I rejoice in her spirit and know she taught me a few things as I her. Soon we will welcome another bundle into our house. The circle of life goes on…….Stuart, Kyla, Elsa, and all the others are watching over us and we will honor them daily in our thoughts, never to be forgotten, and always loved.

  6. I completely agree. It’s like a black cloud has just covered Blogville…

  7. Fozziemum says:

    I so agree..seems one after the other is looking down somewhere around the world at an empty spot..a place that cannot be filled again..we know they are with us in spirit but that touch..smell and sound has left our senses..and we do go on with life because that is what we do..but when that moment hits…it’s like a suckerpunch and you are winded..love hugs and tears for all left behind …Love Bev xxx

  8. It really does suck. It’s been 2 weeks today since we lost Whitley. 😦

    Yes, Dear Stu’s Mum, too many fur babies leave, and we wish that they could live as long as we do! Oh, God, if only they could! It is a terrible, LOST feeling, and seeing them where they used to hang out makes our hearts skip a beat. For a fleeting moment in time, the sweet memory etched in our mind takes over, and the sudden adrenaline at the vision of our baby being there makes us wild with JOY! Alas, cruel reality quickly sets in, and we are back to the gnawing pain of yearning for our beloved companion. So we throw ourselves back into our work hoping to quell the miserable emptiness!!
    It is a horrible experience!
    We pray your burden of this great loss is lightened.
    Love,
    Riley-Puppy’s and Tessie-Girl’s Mum

  10. I think of wee Stu a lot. I saw a dog seat bucket a few days a go and I immediately thought of Stu.
    Blogville is great for information sharing like the thunder shirt. I had some renovations done and Jack wore his shirt when I had to leave him (and the other critters) for a few hours, the builders said he was much happier with it on. I miss hearing of Forrest too and I can’t believe I won’t be seeing him again. ❤ ❤ ❤

    And now we have to worry about Lexi the Schnauzer who started chemo today for melanoma.

    WE HAVE A SECRET, YOU AND I THAT NO ONE ELSE SHALL KNOW, FOR WHO BUT I CAN SEE YOU LIE EACH NIGHT IN FIRE GLOW? AND WHO BUT I CAN REACH MY HAND BEFORE WE GO TO BED AND FEEL THE LIVING WARMTH OF YOU AND TOUCH YOUR SILKEN HEAD?
    AND ONLY I WALK WOODLAND PATHS AND SEE AHEAD OF ME YOUR SMALL FORM RACING WITH THE WIND SO YOUNG AGAIN AND FREE. AND ONLY I CAN SEE YOU SWIM IN EVERY BROOK I PASS AND WHEN I CALL, NO ONE BUT ME CAN SEE THE BENDING GRASS.

  13. There has been a lot of loss in our lovely blog world and with each one, I feel the wind at my back pushing me towards my own grappling with loss when Sam goes. He’s 16-1/2 and while many cats live much longer, I see the aging and changes and it’s just a reminder of what’s to come. I treasure every moment, every second with him now and the memories are permanently etched on the pages of my minds’ “Diary” of my life with Sammy. I feel so bad for everyone who has gone through this and I know that when the day comes that I am experiencing it, all of you will be there for me too………..which is a comfort but doesn’t give me my ginger boy back by my side. We miss them ALL though – every one.

    Love, Pam (and Sammy)

  14. I agree with you… I always see the empty houses in my imagination and I feel with all who have to go through this bitter time….

  15. We are losing too many of our precious furkids. It takes the heart a long time to heal♥

    Sweet hogs and snout kisses my dear friend. It has been a trying time all over blogville lately. Mouse Girl passed away so unexpectedly that it’s still unbelievable to us. XOXO – Bacon

    All of the Facebook Scottie sites are full of Rainbow Bridges. It is getting very discouraging to look at them each day.

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
