    Leanne, I am so sorry for your loss. I know how difficult it is to lose a furry 4 legged family member. Consider yourself hugged. :friends:

    That’s very hard.

    Our pets become so intertwined in our family lives that it’s like losing a part of our life when they die, isn’t it.

    It was a good run ol\’ girl. 13 years of love and loyalty. You were are protector, our friend, and the first member of the family we have today.
    To let go hurts, but to know that you are going strong today, the pain of the loss will lessen but the love never will.
    Rest well buddy.

    Oh No, I’m sorry Leanne. I am sooo sorry. I know this is a hard time for you right now. She must have known how much she was loved by you and your family all these years–dogs just know these things.
    Many hugs :(

    Shelli told me about your loss. I’m so sorry. I know just how you feel; we lost two dogs in the last six months, the last just a week ago. She’ll always be in your heart. And she’ll be waiting to see you again. Big hugs to you. xo

    So sorry about Chloe. She was a sweetheart. It is so hard to let go of a cherished family pet when the time comes. Big hugs to all of you!

    […] I haven’t been doing the regular memes since I gave up hosting Monday Memories because I was taking a little break from all of that, but my friend, Leanne, who is the creator of Thursday Thirteen, likes it when I participate. I am doing this for her today because her dear dog, Chloe, died yesterday and I want to do whatever I can to make her smile. So, smile, Leanne. I love you. […]

    So sorry to hear about your loss.

    Little Chloe seemed adorable, and I’m sure you shared lots of happy times. Still, it’s never easy when it’s time to say goodbye. Keep well.

    I know how hard that can be. I have lost a few pets. I hope the memory of the good times help to pull your through. It is always hard to say goodbye, but I always believe I will see my pets again.

    Leanne, I am so sorry you lost your Chloe. I have many animals and I know how hard it is when they have to leave us. They give us so much, so at least we have good memories of how wonderful they were to have for such a short while. Hope you are okay, hugs to you.

    Leanne, we are sending our hugs to you and Mark today. I know how you loved Chloe and so did she and I know she loved you in return. You were blessed to have her in your life as was she to have you in hers. That’s what makes it so hard when you lose a friend, but she is better now, able to run and play again and for that we must be grateful. Love, clara :hug:

    It is so sad to lose a pet you’ve loved and had for so long. We lost a family pet after 12 years, when my kids were teenagers. She was a mid-sized chihuahua and she was like our baby. Never had another dog that I’ve felt that way about.

    So sorry for your loss :(
    I am dreading the day my cat leaves us…I have had her since I was 7 years old (now i am 26) – she still lives with my parents as we thought it was unfair to move her when I moved out (plus we live in a flat.) I just know I am going to be heartbroken.

    take care
