Those who've met Roy and myself at either Emily or the '06 PEI meets will know that our dog Molly was pretty much attached to the hip of one or the other of us at all times. If you met us, you met Molly. And she loved camping and all of you very much.
This is just a quick note to let you all know that Molly passed on just before Christmas so you won't be able to be sure it's us in the next campsite by identifying her wagging tail.
Suffice to say, we are devastated.

I wish to offer up my condolences for your loss. Having experienced similar loss in the past, I understand how difficult it is for you now. Peace be with you.

I am so sorry for you. It's tough to lose family. Especially at this time of year.Our Holly says you can give her a hug if you're near our trailer, she has plenty of love to go around.

I am terribly sorry for your loss. I hope that your grieving will be swift and tolerable, so that you may someday find a new friend to share the obvious love that you have to give. (No animal is ever attached at the hip unless it knows it is loved.)

All of us animal lovers that have had to say goodby to a furry friend because of sickness can feel your pain. It is so hard! The tears will come as you think of Molly and she is not there to greet you, etc. Just know that you helped ease unbearable pain of cancer in her body.
I too put down an 11 yr old dog just a week before Christmas. The pain you feel is fresh in my mind as well.
One can not imagine the pain of loosing a close doggie companion unless they have one themselves and have been through it.
Not much one can say except so sorry for your loss, but that doesn't even begin to help ease the pain for you.
I hope you have a good year ahead and when ready for a new furry friend, know that Molly would want you to have another buddy to share life with. She would not want you to be lonely.
Thanks for sharing your sadness with us. We care!

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

We are so sorry for your loss - It's so very hard to lose a pet. They are real family members.

We had to put our 14 year old cat "Toni" down in 2002, just shortly after we purchased our Casita.. She went on three trips with us and she was so much fun to have with us. Our daughter kept wanting us to get another kitten but we were sure that wasn't going to happen soon. We felt so bad when we lost Toni.

Last year Cori surprised us with an 8 week old kitten "Jerry" for our birthdays. He is the love of our life now and we always thank Cori for our fantastic gift.

We never met Molly, but your post tells how much you really loved and miss her. Maybe someday we will meet and your heart will again be filled with love for another pet that needs a warm, loving home.

Furkids bring joy to our lives without needing a college education!

My condolences.

thats right four legged kids dont make us pay college tuition. Yeah we spoil ours as much as we can, so we dont have any regrets when they pass. I'm sure everyone else does too.

Dear Carol Ann & Roy - we add our heartfelt condolences to those already posted, and we, too, pray Molly will send you another furkid to love when you are ready. When we had to say goodbye to Dave's beloved 14-yr old Pit Bull (I know, but THIS gentleman was a poster boy for all that is GOOD in the breed) Dave said 'no more dogs - it's too hard." We had already lost my last Rottweilers and I never thought about life without a canine companion. The healing took a long time, but was ended when "Niner" sent "Ms. Minnie" the Daschuahua to us. She must be what happens when one washes a Pit Bull in hot water ... the result is 15 lbs. of adorable attitude! Minnie & Mr. D are 'joined at the hip' too, and we are enjoying every minute of sharing life with this little busy-body. May you take joy from all the memories. Wishing you good things in the New Year. L 'n D

p.s. Gina - reading "The Rainbow Bridge" nearly does me in every time.

As it does me. I truely beleive when I shuffle of this mortal coil, I will be bowled over by a herd of phenomenal degree.

Bayng Beagles, an aussie keeping everyone in line, a Springer pointing, cats trying to trip me.. I remember ALL of them.

I have a different memento that I purchase after each ones passing, something that "They" speak to me and say "That is me, Mommy".

On one side of my house are all their tags and licenses, like a giant memorial. These tags will be moved into the Burro if/when I finally make the leap to full timing.

Thanks everyone for your kind words. Just when we thought we were getting through the intense stage of mourning, the New Year's holiday seems to have brought it all back with a vengeance.
The Rainbow Bridge -- it's the sentence "His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers" that gets me every time. Always has.
We're going to have to have another, it's the only way to shift the focus.

I add my condolences too.

It's hard to lose a pet especially one that is so bonded to you. I was surprised when I lost little Mitzi 3 years ago that it was only a few weeks later when Lily can into my life. Quite a shock to go from an 18 1l2 year old couch potato to a 8 week old puppy bouncing off the walls. Lily was definitely a God's Sent.

We'll think the best thoughts for you while you get through this difficult time.

Lily adds her condolences too.
