RIP Scorch
« on: October 02, 2017, 09:32:25 pm »
In light of the recent Las Vegas tragedy, it might seem self-indulgent to post the loss of a pet.  However, we had to send our male whippet, Scorch, across the rainbow bridge.  At the age of 13, his kidney disease collapsed into kidney failure, and the kindest thing to do was to set him free.

So he is now with his friends, Tammye, St. John, Gypsea and Teddy, who are showing him best locations for treats and sharing eternal sunshine to doze in.

Fare well, old friend.

 :'(  Jerusha, I am so sorry to hear of your Loss, I know Scorch and Teddy (I remember Teddy) and the other loves are together in the Eternal Sunshine. I am in hopes that they come across Angel to share in those Treats.
Here is a quote Desert Rose shared with me not so long ago. and I truly loved it.

“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enought, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.”

I'm sorry for your loss, Jerusha.  They just don't live long enough, do they?  :'(

I'm sorry to hear of this loss, Jerusha. Animals are parts of our family, and the pain of losing them is very real. Been there, had to do it, felt the pain and it hurts a lot. A human's last, most loving responsibility is to end the suffering of the animals we love when restored health is no longer possible.  You  have fulfilled that role for Scorch. I hope he's racing around being glad to be free of pain, again.

Hugs and sympathy. Losing pets is horrible, they give us so much.

And all the men and women merely players;

Sorry Jerusha.  When my Sophie died (and I had issues with the vet and family members over what happened) I felt so terrible. Every time I hear the Green Day song "Wake Me Up When September Ends" I think of my Sophie (she died in September the year the song came out)

Where rest, at length,
the lord and slave,
They'll wondering ask, how hands so vile,
Could conquer hearts so brave?"
