My sweet Truffles passed away...

I haven't posted much recently as Truffles my beloved 17 year old Coton de Tulear had been quite sick. He finally had to be put down which was the hardest decision I've ever made, but he was in pain and we couldn't help him anymore. Cocotini has been looking for him everywhere and even got up in the middle of the night a couple of times looking for him. She finally seems to have given up. Although he lived a long life-it just doesn't get any easier to see them go....

Jocelyn, Mindy, Cocotini, and Candy


Truffles (1992-2009) We miss you!!

oh, I'm so sorry. I know, it's the hardest decision in the world and I wish we didn't have to make it. And when they are with you that long, it leaves such a void. 17 is a good long life, and I'm sure he was very lucky to have you caring for him, which hopefully is some comfort to you. Hardest thing about getting a pet - knowing you'll probably outlive it. Yet we do it time and again because the rewards are so worth the hardest part.

Oh (((((((((((Jocelyn))))))))))) ! I'm so sorry to hear this. I know how much Truffles was an important part of your life. Wow, 17 years. He lived a long life and I'm sure he was very loved and happy with you. No, I suppose it still isn't easy, even when you know it had to be.

If you feel like it, maybe you can share a picture or two of sweet Truffles with us.

Take care, hon.

Jocelyn, I've been thinking of you and your precious Truffles these past few weeks but was too chicken to pm you. I have no comforting words that could make this any easier. I'm sorry.

Remember the stories. That always helps me. My Shelby died last year at 17 1/2 years old. She made us laugh so much and she still does.
Take care,
Karen

Jocelyn , don't worry ,he will be waiting for you at The Rainbow Bridge. You must have loved him a lot , for him to have lived that long.
