Our friend Paula has lost a Dear companion today.

Day-dreamingPaula lost Miss Trixie today.

Trixie en repose

  • We are sorry Paula.

  • Oh, Miss Trixie! Isn’t she sweet.

    • Yes she is.

    • Miss Trixie

      Honey, you don’t know the half of it! She had SUCH a fearsome yorkie personality! Nothing (well maybe except fireworks) frightened her stout little heart and at 5lbs, she really was a force to be reckoned with.
      There will never be another like her and I’m so grateful she was a big part of my life.

        You’ll meet her at the Rainbow Bridge.

        • Miss Trixie

          Thank you, dear lady, and it will be joyful! 🙂

  • Miss Trixie

    My little love was diagnosed with kidney disease last April at the age of 15 and I expected her to pass quickly. At least that’s what the vet said.
    She hadn’t eaten nor drank for three days and just wanted to snooze in her little bed and after the prognosis that Saturday morning, I was putting off the inevitable by going grocery shopping. Heart-heavy and tears blurring my vision, I trod the steps to the landing fully intending to scoop her up and take her to the vet for the last time.
    And there she was, my little monster, weak as a kitten and yelling at me from behind the baby gate how hungry she was. She stuffed her fuzzy face on a Cesar filet mignon dinner, had a great big fart, then a tinkle and promptly settled down for another long snooze in her bed.
    Thank you Lord, for giving me a little more time with my best girl. I’m going to miss her with all my heart. Amen.

    Thank you good folks, for your kinds words. I’m a wreck.

    • Take care Miss Trixie, I am glad you had those extra moments her.

    • Frau Katze

      My condolences. It’s always hard to lose a beloved friend.

      We are so sad for you and know what it is like to foresee it. Our lovely maltipom Jane, is blind and deaf at 15 and we treasure every day, but know we cannot turn back the clock. Miss Trixie told you when her quality of life was just not there. As long as Jane is climbing the steps, relishing the fresh air, walks and food and her other furry companions, all is OK, but every day we ask ourselves, how much more time do we have with our beloved? It is heartbreaking to lose such a faithful companion, our hearts are with you.

    I am an old guy, and I miss many dogs, they were all special in their own way.
    I was a better person for having shared the road, the meals and the quiet good times, with snuggles
    All dogs go to heaven, they love unconditionally, live in the moment and unashamedly tounge bathe themselves in public.
    I should be so lucky

  • Maggat

    Yes, they are just animals, but it sure is tough when they go.

  • I am so very sorry, Paula. No longer by your side but forever in your heart.


  • Brett_McS

    It is easy to see what a great companion she has been. Sorry for your loss.

  • Clink9

    Sorry you’ve lost your little friend. They are beautiful creatures.

  • I love that picture of her basking in the warm sunlight.

  • bob e

    sorry for your loss

  • AlanUK

    Love, mourn, (and when you are ready) move on.
    Hope you find another companion. It won’t replace your loss but it will add something new and lovely to your life.

    • Petrilla

      I grew up by a dreaded highway in Quebec beside the Laurentians and our family lost cats and dogs there. My Dad, in his wisdom, would always say: There now, it is a tragedy, but this poor little tike needs a home and some food and some love. But if you don’t want to keep it, it’s OK, we’ll find it another home. How long do you think it lasted before a new kitten or puppy or stray found itself a loving home with us? Hours, probably, for how could we look into the eyes of a helpless creature who needed us? I don’t believe you can ever replace a beloved one, but there is always one waiting for the love you can give. And in time, they become beloved too.

    A few years ago I lost Tux unexpectedly during a routine operation at the vet; the grief was nearly unbearable for a while, and I know what you’re going through. Please accept my sympathy and I hope you’ll tell us more about Miss Trixie – she sounds like a wonderful dog.

    A couple years after losing Tux, while checking raccoon traps one spring morning, something said “meow” and a starved white stray jumped into my arms when I opened the box. I don’t understand how fate knew we needed each other, but here we are.

    Paula, I hope that happens to you when the time is right.
    Best wishes.
