Good Bye 2012

Good bye 2012.  You were a a rough year for us and we're glad to see you go.
In 2012 we had to say goodbye to some of our family.
In march Jake left  us. We hadn't known him very long and he was probably sick from the start, but it was sad to lose him.
In April big Tsar lost his battle with a brain tumor. He was so special and we miss him terribly.
In June Holly left us. She had never recovered from losing her friend Cloud a few months earlier.
Then in November the unthinkable happened. We had been fighting the infection for months, but finally Samba couldn't fight any longer.
Five days later her son Sky died of the same infection.
I still can't believe my pups are gone. I don't have the words to tell how much I miss them.

2012 is almost over and I say good riddance. It was an awful year for us and we won't miss it.

Oh Sue. It can only get better, right?

I think of you often and wonder how you are doing and how the boys are. I can't believe how much I miss Lucy so I can only imagine the loss you feel with Samba gone.

Fingers, toes, and paws crossed that 2013 is much, much kinder to you. g

May they all be playing together over the Rainbow Bridge... which I know is not what any of us want, after all we wants our babies here with us.... but I hope that they are together is somewhat comforting to you. Big hugs always....... and as I said the other day, 2012 can suck it!

We know how much you miss your lost animals, because we miss them too. Your stories about them, who does what and when, were always just a joy to read and will continue to be so, but sadly without Tsar, Samba and Sky. Tsar was always my most special favorite of your pack. I love to think of him singing!

Wishing you a wonderful, healthy (people &canine) 2013!

Jo, Stella and Zkhat

Yes, that was not a good year for your Family, but all those guys are waiting for their pals at the bridge and having fun with no pain. Hope this makes you smile, at least the 12/21/2012 prediction didn't happen.

What very rough, unfair year 2012 has been for you. I do keep forgetting to tell you that that mean dog on our road hasn't left its yard - when we do see/hear it - since I began adding Samba to the list of relatives and pets watching over us whom I ask for special attention as we pass. I hope you don't mind...

I think we're ready to say good riddance to 2012 too. I hope 2013 treats your family a lot better than 2012 did.

2012 has been a challenge for you and your pack. We look forward to 2013 being a much better year for all of us.

Your furry loved ones are definitely watching over you at the rainbow bridge. Thank you for sharing them with all of us.

I understand you loss and hope that 2013 will be a better year for all as 2012 as far as I am concerned from my family should never have started. All the best to you and yours Sue x

Sue, I hope with all my heart that your 2013 will be filled with peace, joy, and happiness, and that everyone will be healthy! You've had so many heart-wrenching losses and made such heroic efforts to prevent them. It's time for good times to prevail! Best wishes for a Happy New Year!
