How do you say goodbye?

Well, I guess I do not say goodbye, for me it will always be when we meet again. We had to put our Moose dog to sleep today and I just have no words. He came through a rescue I worked with years back-as a 4 week old, very grumpy puppy (and who wouldn't be after being taken from mom that young??) who decided I was his the first time he set eyes on me. From that day forward, Moose has been my shadow, dedicated to being at my side no matter where I was. He didn't like many other people and had an attitude but he loved me. Best. I don't know how I will go on with out him, but I will because I have to believe he is in heaven now, no more pain and making sure everyone up there behaves-just as HE thinks they should. Sleep well my shadow and know that I loved you back, just as much.

I'm SO SO sorry, Sandy. It's always so hard and there's really little comforting to say. You were lucky to have him that long. XOXO

oh Sandy, I'm so very sorry for your loss! I know you must have dearly loved your Moose, and what a great life he had thanks to you. He's at the rainbow bridge now, w/ no aches or pains!

I'm going to be needing more wool soon for my doll making and will be purchasing for you, b/c you are so kind to the animals and your wool is great, and so affordable!

Thank you ALL so much for your comforting words for me and my Moose dog. You are all so good for my soul! I miss him SO much but I know he is free of his pain- and probably kicking some major *** in heaven! snicker!
