Gah I have started to write this so many times and could never finish, I think I will this time though.

Cricket was about 20 years old in human years and grew with me from day one
She passed on when I was about 15, of old age I suspect. She was my poppies dog and took great enjoyment in having free roam of the back yard. One day Cricket managed to get through the gate and found herself a one night stand. Some time down the road she gave birth to the dog that grew with me until just last week. Spanky was my poppies pride and joy and gave him big kisses and cuddles as he endured the ravaging of lung cancer. (im gonna cry I can feel it :( ) My poppy has been gone almost three years now and I guess spanky at the age of 13 decided that she needed to prepare herself for the trip to the bridge. She got sick and couldnt hardly move and was losing weight very quickly, my aunt decided that it was time to let spanky go and had her humanely put to sleep so she didnt have to suffer anymore. They all will be missed very much.

Rest in peace :cry:

that's so's always hard to say goodbye to a friend that's been with you for so long...she is with your uncle (?) now...where she belongs
Poppy = grandpa... sorry lol I just assume everybody knows what it means... I have said it for so long around family and friends that I dont even think to tell people who it is...
Aww sorry to hear about ur loss.
My deepest sympathy for your loss and can only tell you that in time the pain will ease and you will be able to remember all the good times together with a smile in your heart.
Thank you all for your kind words. Its hard letting go to something that you got used to always being there
So sorry for your losses. I read somewhere that when someone we love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. It sounds like you have many wonderful memories of them all to treasure forever. Sending hugs to you and your family.
I recently lost my mom to lung cancer after a 2 year battle, mom was and will always be my best friend. I was having a very difficult time dealing with her death, I don't think I will ever be the same. I have a 5 year old boxer Ekim, who has been such a comfort to me during this trying time. I decided a few months ago to get a boxer puppy, hence Delila,14 weeks. My family tells me that it is the first time they have seen me smile and laugh in months. I look forward to every morning now that I have Delila, something new with her every day. I recently found this site and now it gives me something else to look forward to, new friends. I don't know your situation, but I can tell you from my experience a new puppy has helped me tremendously, maybe a puppy can help you to. Welcome to the forum and I will keep you in my prayers as any loss is tramatic.

Ekim, 5 & Delila, 14 weeks.

DonnersMom, that is a wonderful way to think about memories.
It is never easy to write things liek that but you did it and Spany, cricket and us all appreciate you sharing a memory of your loves lost. I am sorry for what you had to go through but smile and remeber them, it is what they would want.
