    Default Heartbroken

    Hi all,
    Haven't been on in quite some time as we have moved house and cannot get internet where we are, but I felt I had to get on and leave a tribute for our beautiful little girl Pipa who sadly passed away tragically yesterday.
    Pip came to us 11 years ago as a sickly little pup who wouldn't have made it if it wasn't for a wonderful vet. She has been a major part of our family for so long and we are all feeling the lose.
    Sadly it's my fault she passed away and I will never be able to forgive myself I really wish life had a rewind button.
    A life can disappear so suddenly. It would be greatly appreciated if everyone could read this poem and take a minute to remember our beautiful little girl and all pups that have passed away.

    The Best Dog of All

    Loving and loyal,
    A friend through and through,
    How in the world can I
    live life without you?

    I've known you since you
    Were just a scrappy little pup.
    Fighting to survive,
    And you never gave up.

    I watched you grow into a
    beautiful canine friend.
    Back in those days,
    I could not imagine this end.

    But now it is all over,
    And you're truly gone.
    Somehow I'll find a way
    To try to carry on.

    Perhaps one day I'll find
    A new puppy who,
    Will become my dear friend,
    But she'll never replace you.

    I'll keep your little photo
    hung up on my wall,
    And I'll always remember you
    As the very best dog of all.
    XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

    Very sorry for your loss dogmad, that was a truly beautiful poem and its obvious that Pipa had a fantastic life just by reading it. Remembering the good times when you and her were having fun is always a great reminder that Pipa was lucky to have you as her best mate!

    I am so sorry for your loss.......I hope the day will come where you can smile at her memory. i think some of us have that "if only moment" and where we wish we could rewind, I have one.....i am sorry this has happened to you. Sound like she was truly loved. There are so many dogs who are not, so she was lucky.

    RIP Pipa.........A little Angel for Rainbow Bridge

    I'm sorry to hear about Pipa.

    When I think about things like this - I remember how often I've been lucky that the worst has not happened to my dog when I've done something stupid (like leaving the front door open when I thought she was asleep). I learn to be more careful each time but I wonder how many chances will I get to stuff up.

    Sorry to hear about your loss, rember the good times and smile, I to suffered a loss and it was due to an if only moment. Our Tommy cat will be forever remembered by us. The loss of Tommy created a big hole in our lives, to which we looked to fill, hence along came Maxi in our lives, who makes our lives whole again. So now when we think of Tommy we smile in memory of his past antics.

    peace to you in your loss.

    re you stuffing up: there but for the grace of god go i. On so many occasions, mostly, we are lucky, but sometimes we are not. Dont focus on what you did wrong, focus on all that you did right!

    Thankyou all for the kind words. It's now day 2 since Pip took her final breath and it still hasn't really sunk in I'm still looking for her in the house and I even called out to her this morning when I realized she didn't go out with the other pups, even they seem depressed.
    Was wondering when you have a traumatic experience how do you over come it and get back to everyday life? At the moment I can't drive my car because I just start shaking as soon as I go near it, and everything makes me cry. I have lost many pets in my life, but never lost one so traumatically or at my own hands.

    Wish I could answer that question but can't. The loss of a pet before their time is always traumatic. To have it happen because we had a human moment and stuffed up stays a long time, I know because I've made that mistake too & remember it like it was yesterday.

    All I can say is nothing can be changed now, so go easy on yourself and know you are not the only one to stuff up big time. You're probably sitting there thinking constantly, if only I'd done this instead, or, done that, and you know what that's a perfectly normal reaction, but after a while you just have to forgive yourself. I doubt you shall ever make the same mistake again (whatever it was it doesn't matter you didn't mean to, this wasn't deliberate). We all iive and learn from our mistakes, even the really hurtful ones.
