I've been on this board since April and I've seen a lot of people lose their babies. We just moved in June and I had been looking all over for the poem I wrote for my little Daisy. I had it framed with her collar. I just found it and wanted to share it with all of you.
My little princess loves to play, my little princess looks my way, with big brown eyes and a happy face, she wags her tail all over the place.
The most beautiful coat you ever did see, black and white, and as tiny as can be.
She is independent and set in her ways, for some time, I thought it was a phase. She does not listen..that is for sure, that is one thing I love about her.
Always happy to see me, as I am her, she acts like a kitten, yet does not purr.
When she is sleepy and all tuckered out, I know where to find her without a doubt. Under the blankets on top of my bead, with her legs curled and tucked to her head.
She wakes and I wonder why she begins to yelp, than I laugh, she can't get off the bed...help!
She makes me laugh and she thinks she's so tough, she can take out the boys when they play to rough.
I will love her forever and I miss her like crazy, I will never forget my little..... Daisy.
Sorry it's so long. I don't normally like to talk about her and I have not mentioned her, it's still hard. Please everyone who has lost a friend, post something about them.
That peom was super sweet! My family and I lost Sam 2 Christmas's ago. We got Sam when I was 6 years old. He lived until I was 24. He was more of a brother to me sometimes then a dog. He was a Mutt and absolutely beautiful until the day he left. He had long hair much like a Collie. And the smarts to go with it. As kids my sister and I would play hide and seek with him ( he would always find us) Funniest memory. We were camping one summer and Sam was sitting by the fire. He heard a rustle in the bush behind us. On instinct he dove into it to protect us, But he met up with a skunk and yep got it all over!! Needless to say we had to give him the Tomato juice bath routine!! Him and my father covered in tomato juice was quit the scene!
I am thinking of him a lot lately cause I am looking to get a dog for my son, so he can experience the joy I did growing up. I would love to find a Sam again... but I am pretty sure he was one of a kind.
I've already talked about Doodles on some other posts, so I talk about Sandy, my grandmas dog.
My grandma got Sandy, a cockapoo when she was just a pup. I was about four at the time and was always at Nannys house. I carried this poor dog everywhere with me, fed her cheese, and slept with her when I was over. Sandy lived to be 15 years old. I was the only grandchild (out of 15) that Sandy liked. If I sat on the couch, she was with me and when my Nanny stopped letting her on the bed (she had bladder problems being so old), I would sneak her in my room. She was always giving kisses. I groomed her whenever I was over and loved her as if she was my own. She was a very special dog to everyone, and my Nanny still has a tough time talking about her. Sandy had to be pts because of kidney problems and she was suffering in her old age. She didn't die alone tho, her best friend Jasper (a pom) was pts with her (kids threw a brick over the fence and hit him, he then started to have seizures. Well they are waiting at the rainbow bridge, playing together.
two years ago i lost my jack russle ... on th 24/5/04 she was playing in our back yard with our bodercollie he loved her so much and like normal dogs they dug a hole and got out in a matter of mins she was gone ...hit by a car ... we had a funerall 4 her ....so sad :(
T.J. Border collie mix. Smart, patient and gentle, we couldn't have had a better dog for the kids. He lived for 17 years.
Fred Cocker Spaniel. This was my youngest sons best buddy from age three. He was with us for 14 years.
Amy Very small mix breed. She was my pocket baby, I loved her to pieces. She was with us for 9 years, we didn't know how old she was because she was a stray.
Tootsie Miniature Schnauzer. A very spoiled rotten little girl. She was very smart and very sneeky. She didn't like kids at all and anyone under 3 feet tall was in danger. We were just glad she was small. She lived to be 15 grouchy years old!
I loved each one and all have a place in my heart, I think of them often and still miss them.

I would like to remeber a special puppy that had to be put down shortly after birth due to Spina Bifida(sp?) She was from one of my american eskimo litters and is so far the only puppy i have ever lost.
She was number 4 in a litter of 5. She came out very lively but very skinny. When i took her from her mother to be dried and stimulated i realized she had a large open wound on her lower back. I had never heard of the condition before so i was dumstruct. I did my best to clean the wound and then i gave her back to her mother for nurishment. She had a terrible suckling reflex though and no matter how hard i tried to help her she could not manage to get on a nipple. After all the pups were delivered we went to the vet and the condition was explained to me. From what i recall her spin was not fully formed and was as i said before completely exposed right around her hips. Her spin did not connect to her hips so she could not move her back legs. They remained somewhat folded "indian style" underneath her body. Her bad suckling reflex was also due to the condition. She never even had a chance!
We brought her home and burried her. I hope in doggie heaven she can run fast like eskies love to do. Her mother has many many more years on earth but i hope someday they will meet again so that the pup will get the love her mother gives to her puppies soooo well!
Growing up I had a black toy poodle named Poochie. He was like my little brother, he was only 5 when a man that was working on our house, doing some remodeling accidentaly let him out. He ran up to the road and got hit by a car. I was totally devastated. I have never been that close to a dog until Max, we have that same special bond that me and Pooch had.
