Oh Mike

I am so very sorry to hear this - we all hope for miracles at times like this and at some point all on this forum have had to say goodbye to their loved ones...it is never easy and never anything to take lightly -

Thinking of you and sending big hugs

Jemma and Max

I came to see how things were going first thing this morning. I'm praying for you to keep strong and try to go forward without to much sadness. I'm sure its very hard I too am sad over what you have to do. I'm just positive that the rainbow bridge is a great place for such a loving sweet Havanese. Please stay with the forum so we can help you threw your pain.

Hi Mike,

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I just wanted to share four beautiful poems that I used for my Laika's memorial. You might not want to read them this second, but they brought me some comfort.

"A Special Place"- (J. Cooper 1994)
You have a special place Dear Lord that I know you'll always keep;
A special place reserved for dogs when they quietly fall asleep.
With large and airy kennels and a yard for hiding bones,
With maybe a little babbling creek that chatters over stones.
With wide green fields and flowers for those who never knew about running freely under Your sky of perfect blue.
Lord,I know You keep this Special Place
And so to you I Pray,
For one Special Borzoi
Who quietly died today.
She was full of strength & love and so very, very wise.
The puppy look she once had
Had long since left her eyes.
She is dearly missed my Lord
She went to join her ancestors
To Your land that is Devine
So, speak to Laika softly please
And give her a warm hello.
She's a Special gift to you Dear Lord
From Mimi, who loved her so.

My Forever Pet
There's something missing in my home,
I feel it day and night,
I know it will take time and strength,
Before things feel quite right.

But just for now, I need to mourn,
My heart -- it still needs to mend.
Though some may say it's "just a pet,"
I know I've lost a friend.

You've brought such laughter to my home,
And richness to my days…
A constant friend through joy or loss,
With gentle loving ways.

Companion, pal, and confidante,
A friend I won't forget,
You'll live for always in my heart,
My sweet, forever pet…
Written by -- Susanne Taylor

"An Inseparable Pair"
I miss you so much, my four-legged friend
I ask myself each day, if the pain will ever end
Your loss is so hard, for one person to bear
Because we were a team, an inseparable pair

You were by my side, when I got up each day
Waiting so patiently, to go out to play
You were there each night, when I got home
Waiting to go to the park, where you could roam

You always knew, if I was having a bad day
So you'd snuggle up close, and try to get me to play
If that didn't work, you'd put your head in my lap
Then make yourself comfortable, and take a nap

One way or another, you would brighten my day
Like only you could, you had a special way
You gave me a lifetime, of memories to hold
Through all the years ahead, till I am gray and old

I promise I'll see you, again one day
When we'll be together again, to go run and play
Your loss is a cross, I will just have to bear
Because you and I know, we were an inseparable pair"

I Loved you Best
So this is where we part, My Friend,
And you'll run on, around the bend.
Gone from sight, but not from mind,
new pleasures there you'll surely find.

I will go on; I'll find the strength,
Life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
Share one last look, before I grieve.

There are others, that much is true,
But they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
Will remember well all you've taught.

Your place I'll hold, you will be missed,
The fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
Take with you this...I loved you best.

Hi everyone my first post here

Oh, Mike, I have tears in my eyes and am so sorry. This makes me so very sad for both you and Tucker. Thank God you will have the chance to be with him and hold him close when it's time to say goodbye. It's going to be one of the hardest things you will ever have to do, but you will go on. It takes a long time to get over something like this, but most of us have been through it before and time does heal. You will never forget him and just know that you gave him a great life and all your love. My prayers are with you as you embark on this sad journey. Please stay in touch with us as I think it will help you. Glad you reached out to us in your time of need.

Mary (miss you, Bailey-1996-2011 and Tyler-1997-2015)

I'm sure Tucker will be comforted to know you are doing everything you can to make him comfortable. He'd do the same for you. I'm sorry to hear.
