Goodbye, Purdy.

Goodbye, Purdy.
Sadly Purdy (Belle of Betley) died on Thursday. I was with her when she was born and there when she died. She was the most beautiful, loving, sweet-natured dog, loved by everyone who knew her. She has been my precious companion and "shadow" for just over 12 years and I am heartbroken. Our home and everyday life seems empty without her.

Oh Ann..... I am so sorry & very sad for you..... I went through the same thing a few months ago & was & still heartbroken !!!...... For you >>>>

Each life is a blessing that doesn't last long,
And ends all too suddenly it all seems so wrong,
Yet hope keeps me going through all of my pain,
That one day I can be with you once again,
And I know that a new star in heaven does shine,
Yet I wish you were with me and you were still mine,
But sadly I know that it can never be,
Yet your spirit remains here forever with me.

My heart lies so broken no future have I,
I'm lost in a void as I gaze to the sky,
I'll never forget you as long as I live,
So much to offer so little to give,
And I know that a new star in heaven burns bright,
Amidst all the darkness a beautiful sight,
Yet I long to hold you and never let go,
If my dream will come true it shall always be so.

My tears go on falling such hurt I now feel,
My soul has been wounded and never will heal,
The blossoms of love that we shared blown away,
I live with the cold of the winter each day,
And I know that a new star in heaven does gleam,
So graceful above in the highest esteem,
Your memory lives on and it shall never fade,
For a promise of love unto you I have made.

Thank you so much. I have cried so much reading what you have written. I know that with time it will get better. I also know that I was really blessed to have shared the last twelve years with such a special dog.

I understand everything what you are going through, & I have shed a tear for you.
It is so hard & I still have that empty void, but it has got a tiny bit better, for me.
Sorry to upset you more. xx

Such a gentle face.
I can imagine how it is to have lost such a friend. We to have had dogs (for 25 years) and had to separate from them.

My heart goes out to you.

My beloved Lucas passed in July.

Grieve as you must but remember to celebrate the life too.

There are many hands and paws to lift her up.. and many hands and paws to take her and show her how to fly.

MarJ, don't worry, you have not upset me more! It's good to shed a few...a lot...of tears, it helps to release emotions and work through what you are feeling. Purdy deserved the tears. I'd be a hard person to just carry on regardless. With time I know it will be easier

Such a gorgeous looking girl. It's heartbreaking to lose a beloved companion. With you beside her tho', she died knowing how much she was loved, and I'm sure the feeling was mutual. With best wishes, Maggie

Purdy has replied to Don Barrett (aka DBs…
She was very special. I think she saw me as her mother, although she spent most of her life with her real mother, Holly! I really miss her.

I've had two calico cats, both female, that developed/have such attachments to me that I feel quite guilty leaving them with friends so that I can travel...
22 months ago.
Purdy has replied to Don Barrett (aka DBs…
I can understand the guilt! However, your cats are in good hands when looked after by a neighbour. Holly and Purdy used to be looked after by a neighbour and they were happy as they had each other. It became more difficult when Holly died because Purdy became more and more reliant on my company. She was only really happy if she stayed with my mother as they loved each other very much. Once Purdy became ill with dementia we could not leave her at all. Now we have the freedom to travel but it feels strange not to be responsible for her well-being. No doubt it will become easier in time.

Thank you so much for your consoling comments about Purdy. All that you say is so true. I cannot imagine having another dog at the moment. Purdy was such a special dog and I am not ready to contemplate having another. I am still grieving her death.
