Sobee Doo

Last week I said good bye to my awesome dog, Sobee. His cancer came back suddenly and all we could do was keep him as comfortable and happy as possible until the end. He has been my best friend, a cherished family member, a protective and gentle presence and the most wonderful partner in crime I could have ever imagined. I miss my guy so much, but I know he'll always be with me.

I am sobbing over here. My heart HURTS so badly for you. I am sending you tons of virtual hugs in your time of mourning and almost wish we didn't love our fur babies so much, or at least they were allowed to live as long as us. I wish I could find the right words of comfort...know that I am here if you need anything.

OHHH, Michaele..my heart is so heavy right now. To lose such a dear love as your partner in crime is so difficult. I know he's with you now, too. Cancer. Why is there such a thing? I am hopeful he was in no pain and passed effortlessly..I know you took great care to see to that. Big hugs to you my friend!!

Oh man, I am so bummed out. This is terrible and I think many of us here know your pain. But you're right, the memories will be with you forever so he's never really gone. My sincerest condolences.

OOh Sweetheart,
Michaele I know how you feel. They are our children in so many ways and our hearts just break when things like this happen. My cat Judah died from cancer as well. It's took the breathe out of me. He was the sweetest cat. Everyone loved him and loved everyone. I pray that your heart will be comforted at this very difficult time.
Sending you the biggest hug right now,
Shalom,
V

Hey, stranger! Awwwwwwwww...this picture still makes me so sad! :( I hope ya'll had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thanks for the comment on my sketches. Is it bad to admit I am in love with my lion too? Can't wait to give him a little color. I have a whole host of ideas for him. Be well my friend.

Sandra Evertson said...

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss.
A few years ago my beloved kitty companion of 17 years passed away from cancer as well. I think of her everyday, just be assured they are always, forever with us, they know that we love them still.

@Sandra-I'm so sorry to hear about your kitty as well. Having a beloved pet for 17 years--all the things she experienced with you during that time--it's so sad but such a gift too. Thanks for the sweet words!
