    A week a go today we lost our family dog a 12 year old Border Collie. Lost him last friday night. He had fit (1st one he has ever had in his life) & didnt recover so had to be put to sleep. Was such a shock with how he went :( Miss my baby sooooo much. I have cried everyday since he went :'( :'( Cant get over him going & it is still raw & hurts like mad. We are having his ashes when he is ready so we can bring him home again. Wish i could go to rainbow bridge to see him to give him a big hug & kiss & to make sure he is alright & not in pain anymore & then come back again :( Never thought it would hurt like this when he had to go :( He was the best dog ever, really couldnt ask for a better dog. Run free my baby boy untill we meet again. Love you loads Owen & i will never forget you.

    Thats him in my avatar pic :) I will also post some more of him.

    What a handsome boy :)

    Although it is heartbreaking and you obviously miss him - try and remembe rthe good times you had - he wouldn't want you to be miserable - he will think he made you unhappy :(

    You were lucky to have had a good life together - he knows he was loved and though not with you in body - he will always be watching over you.

    (((hugs)))

    hi there. so sorry 2 hear of ur sad loss. i lost my 11yr old rough collie dog Hollie 4 weeks ago 2 cancer. she had been sick alot b4 the vet operated on her and found a massive tumour under her ribs. she died in my arms later that day at 3.30pm. it was the worst experience i ever had 2 go thru. it was my 1st time i had 2 do it and it will b the last as i wont b getting another dog as no dog will ever replace our wee angel. i had her from she was 6weeks old. she was my baby and my angel and also the best dog ever. every1 loved her and they've been telling me they r missing her like crazy. its still hard 4 me as she was also my best friend. R.I.P Hollie and Owen xxxx

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss - we have all been through it at some time or another and know exactly how you feel.

    As time goes on the pain won't go but you will remember all the happy, happy times you had with him. He will still be in your heart forever.

    Take each day as it comes - and remember we are all here for you. :smile:

    Sorry to hear about Hollie - I know that probably doesn't mean anything to you at the moment but I would just like to say that although you can never replace your lovely Hollie you have a lot of love to give and maybe one day you will be able to open your heart to another little angel that needs you. Please keep that thought. :smile:

    it was the hardest goodbye i ever had 2 do when our hollie died. it will get easier in time. tho not straight away. its been 4weeks since she died and i wish she was still here. all my neighbours and friends tell me they're missing her like crazy. they always would c her lying out the front enjoying the weather. she was a well loved dog. i still have the sign on our gate that says 'Watch out Rough Collie about' and a cartoon pic of a rough collie. every1 loves it and tells me i should keep it there xxxx

    I am so sorry for your loss.
    It is truely painful when they leave us.
    The tears will soon stop and soon the happy memories of him will replace those tears.
    When you get him back although it still hurts, he will be back with you.
    I have ours back with us and I do find it a comfort that they are there with us.

    I hope you will feel better soon.
    It is a miserable time loosing a pet but it's part of having pets and how ever sad it is. I would never be without them.

    Thanks again everyone. He is now back home :( in a lovely box with his name on, on the fireplace half. It seems final now & real that he's gone & that we wont ever see him again. I know i wasnt going to see him again when he had to go but having him hear in a box seems sooo final, like its the end! :( None of that prob done make any sense but i know what i mean! The other family dog that we have Kenny (Owen's best friend) was just staring at the box with Owen's ashes in like he knows he's in there :( very freaky!!

    Kenny may well know that Owen is back. Years ago I had mom & daughter cats -when mom was pts, she was buried in the back garden while daughter cat was in the house - daughter didn't see where we had buried her mom - but for weeks later she went and lay on the exact spot that we had buried her mom. It was sad but touching at the same time. It wasnt a case that it was newly dug ground because a lot of the garden was newly dug ready for vegetables.

    Yes it is final - but at least you have him back with you now and can talk to him and 'feel' his spirit.

    RIP Owen and (((hugs))) to you x

    Thanks again everyone. Its still really hard without him :( :( Miss him soooo much! Was sat with him earlier on but its not the same as when he was hear. Want/need a big hug off him! I used to say to him 'Do you want a love?' & he would jump up & sit on my knee & give me the best hug ever!!

    Yes Sweep he was a lovely dog - the best!
