Welcome to general discussion!

Did your Britt make you laugh today? Did he do something so smart, you are blown away? Those puppy teeth causing you to tear up, and you need an outlet? Or do you want to post a picture of his or her latest point? This is the place for it!

One of those weeks

Post by Cindy »

I don't know how the rest of you are feeling, but this has to be one of the WORST weeks on this board. Between Dave and Nitro and now Leena, I just want to shut my computer down for a while and go away. So much sadness and no way to make anyone feel better or change the outcome. I'm really glad we're headed to Hatteras on Thursday for an entire week of swimming and fishing and just hanging out with the dogs.

I agree...it HAS been a rough week. But I hope all this sadness helps make everyone realize how short and precious life can be. I know I've been giving my girls extra hugs all week. Let's hope this is the end of the bad luck and things start looking up.

Totally agreed.

Since Dave passed, I don't think I've opened up this board without crying. First a few days of tears for Dave, then Nitro, and now Leena.

It definitely has been a tough, tough week. :cry: Right now I keep praying that bad things truly do come in 3's.. that we are at the bottom of the valley, and about to start up the hill, into the nice, warm sun.

Sometimes we have to sit with our pain and work through our grief. This is one of those times. We have suffered the loss of a dear friend in Dave and the precious pooches, Nitro and Leena.

I enjoy the friendship that is shared with all of you who love Brittanys as I do. The joy that Dave brought, that Nitro brought, that Leena brought, is not diminished because they are not here with us now. Yet the sorrow is sitting with me now as I grieve their losses . I would like to say there will be no more pain tomorrow or the next day but there will be. But there will be joy too if we can just see through our tears and reach out to it. And so for me, I will continue to risk my heart for friends – human and furry - that may not be here tomorrow.

I will be lighting three candles tonight to remember and honor Dave, Nitro and Leena.

Thanks Auntiemom. I, too, will light three candles tonight. One for Dave, one for Nitro and one for Leena. I've cried more this week than I have in a long time. I've also hugged my family a lot....humanoid and furry. To the families of the three, my heart really goes out to you.

Ditto for lighting 3 candles.

What a great idea.

Little candles burning everywhere for those we have lost.

Wow, I hope Elizabeth is as comforted as I am by your words and actions. Today was a good day for this -I got a little clay footprint of Nitro's from the vet this afternoon. At least I was able to give Nitro a little extra loving as he left, how difficult not to get to say goodbye, Leena left to quickly. I don't know if Diane has been able to read this board yet, but I know she will find comfort here as well. You are terrific people I am honored to be associated with.
