Dear Velma, I'm presuming that this sad good-bye might mean you have had to make the hardest decision any loving dog owner has to. I've watched for the last few months as your girl struggled, and improved, and struggled again. I'm sad for you if this is the case, her leaving will mean a huge gap in your life. Kind regards Sue

She was a grand pup who gave her all as they always do. Sending healing prayers to you and deepest sympathy.

They come and go like little novas in our lives leaving us forever better. tears, yes. Smiles, always.

Fiona Dempster said...

V - thinking of you tonight, she leaves you a bit bereft, yet fortunate to have know her. Sadness, tears and gentle smiles as you remember. Go well...

Barry said...

V- such sadness to see such a friend go. May her passing be gentle; and may the memories that stay with you be those of faithfulness, love and joy. Thinking of you and sending love. B

Alice said...

So very sorry for you.

Susan said...

So sorry, Velma. I always enjoyed hearing what she was up to - a sweet sweet girl.

This is such a hard time. Examining each day, each hour ... is this the time?

Making the shift from doing everything we can to keep them going to knowing the best we can do for them is help them ... stop.

My heart is with you.

Gardener in the Distance said...

Oh Velma, I'm starting to cry. Losing your dog is one of the worst things. I'm sure she couldn't have had a better life though.

Suzanna said...

I've loved getting to know Wendy through your blog and send you love and prayers...it is so hard to say farewell to such a good friend...

Joanna said...

No words. I'll hold thee in the Light, where Wendy has most surely gone.

Ms. said...

Tears. I will miss her. My heart to your heart today Velma.

doloresdew said...

I've only known you and Wendy through your posts - you caught my eye with a photo of Lake Flower - I will also miss Wendy.

henrietta (aka ani aka zani) said...

they say that when our friends (the four legged ones) pass they go across a rainbow bridge and await our arrival...this is something they tell children but I for one believe that all my friends (the four legged ones) are waiting for me so i could rejoice and play with them again. i think she's chatting with was and they are spinning tales/tails about two very special ladies...dear velma...dear wendy.

when our dear pets leave us, it is always difficult to come home to an empty house without that love and adoration reflected in their tender eyes. I will miss those photos of your walks with sweet Wendy.

Sleep tight Wendy...Just go on up to Snoopy and introduce yourself and give her a nibble on the ear for me.

bryan, big grin

ronnie said...

today is the anniversary of my darling grandfather's death - 17 years it's been....seems like only a few months ago... and my dear-heart dog sashie left this world 12 years ago this week.... I still miss them both keenly... I can feel the wendy shaped hole from over this side of the pond - I send you big cyber hugs xxxxxxx

Velma Bolyard said...

ronnie, i don't think i ever loved a dog like this, never lived with one for so long, never been loved so well.

jordiw said...

I'm sitting here in tears over a dog I never even met, but I know the love they give and the bond they make, and the hearts they break when they leave. I know as time passes she will make you smile again, even though the present is hard. Thinking of you, Jordi ... and Sienna and Tinta

Velma Bolyard said...

jordie, it's getting better as i get used to it

Carol said...

Velma, I'm sorry I've just come to this sad news today but I send my love and sympathy. Dear Wendy, so hard to let go but now she is sleeping peacefully. I can see how much support you have received from your online friends which is lovely. All my best wishes to you as you move into spring, the time of rebirth and sunshine. Carol

Velma Bolyard said...

thanks, carol, i'm doing well.
