    I can remember loads of times being very concerned about dogs I'd never met.

    Nellybellys, Bella when she thought she may have picked up poison :(

    Craven and Flint when they went missing :eek:

    Paddyjulies Mavis when she had pancreatitis!!

    newfiesmums Joshua when he struggled to walk and his final illness :cryin:

    And now it's

    Cleo38s Toby, Poor boy has been through so much :(

    Sometimes I think I'm too soft and shouldn't be here :eek:

    I also mourn their losses, I cried when Ted passed away

    I get very worried about the dogs on here and sometimes even the people

    You're not alone! I worry too.

    I think we hear/read and see so much of these dogs lives that it would be hard not to worry.
    I cried when Ted passed away too, we are so involved in the lives of dogs we have never met, I think its lovely that such a wide bunch of people come together in hard times, whatever they may be.

    I absolutely do - I worry about the dogs and their humans too. If a dog is poorly or human going through a tough time I genuinely mean it when I say I'll keep them in my thoughts; they are in them all day every day until they are no longer 'needed'.

    All the time :eek: & if I've got to know the PF member I worry about them too.

    I was so sad when Jonbda & MissShelley lost their beautiful Max 2 years ago, that's the one that stands out in my memory

    I do. I wish I had money for meds, ops, and even a holiday home in Brit, to offer to people in a mess. At this stage, it will need self contained wings,and a secure dog paddock and a huge cat enclosure, and... which is why I never had a CHANCE of wealth...

    Yes, I cried when Woody and Noushka's Indie died. I always worry when any of the dogs on here are ill.

    I also worry when members are ill. I cried when I heard Attack mode had died.

    Yes I often worry about the PF dogs. I always log on much more than normal incase of updates etc it is always good to hear of the recoveries and I shed a few tears if the news is bad.

    We wouldn't be here if we weren't people who cared. I think a lot about the people and their pets on here. When Woody and Xiva passed on I couldn't stop from crying, for the dogs, and for the people- to lose so suddenly, to be so happy one minute and then lose something so precious the next... crying again just thinking about it now :(

    I think there's a lot of love on this forum. A lot of support and empathy.

    I also worry about the other dogs on here, you get to know them from stories and experiences and I find it hard not to feel for them when there is cause for concern.

    I have cried many tears for dogs I only know through PF but by the same measure I have also laughed, smiled, Ooo'd and awww'd over them as well. PF is definitely a roller coaster of emotions and I love being a member :D

    I worry when I read things that the dog/owner are going through.
    I don't talk to anyone on a personal level really, but I still feel for them when they are going through hard times.

    I do worry about the dogs on here, must admit I cant remember all their names, but do feel for anyone who has a poorly dog or lost one:(

    I mostly think about Rona's Alfie, particularly because he is so much like my Ted in so many ways, in looks and his problems.

    I must say thankyou to you all that have mentioned Woody, what happened to him will never ever be far from my mind, I shed a tear for him each and every day:(
