Thank you
by: Bette Huntemann

I would like to thank the other people who have posted thier feelings on my diary. It has made me believe that I'm not crazy and other people love their dogs as much as they do. My husband was so impressed that so many other people care and this site has made me deal with losing her just a little bit easier.

Thank you again so much for posting.


I saw your rainbow
by: Mike (Ellie's Dad)

The day that we had to let you go Ellie was a very hard day for me. When I got up to get ready for work something inside of me told me that when I left you and said goodbye that that would be the last time I would see you. The was clear and sunny without a cloud in the sky. But, suddenly I saw cloud in the sky that was rainbow colored, something that I had never seen before.

When I got to work and my phone rang I knew that there was something wrong. As I spoke with mommy she told me that you were crying and in pain and that you would not walk or go outside to play. I told her to take you to the vet and to call me.

When mommy called me the second time I knew that the news wouldn't be good. As I spoke with Dr. Moran she explained to me the problems with your liver, spleen and that there was blockage in your intestines. It was breaking my heart that I couldn't be with you. Mommy and I made the decision that it was time to let you go. I'm so sorry I wasn't able to be with you but, I want you to know that you were and still are a wonderfull pet and you brought me many memories.

I guess that rainbow cloud was doggy heaven calling for you. Run free Ell, I miss you and love you so very much.


So sorry for your loss
by: Pam

I read with tears in my eyes, you heart ache for losing your beautiful dog.
I felt your pain when I read about you holding her toy.
It is so sad when we lose our furry friends, our hearts break, and there is nothing we can do to stop that unbelievable pain, and the emptyness of it all.
My little friend of 13 years went to the Bridge on the 21st December 2010, and I am still feeling empty.
Dogs are the best animals, but unfortunately do not live long enough.
I hope this poem helps.


They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true
I never wanted memories,
...I only wanted you.

A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

My heart goes out to you
by: Brenda

I am so sorry for your loss. I just had to put my baby girl Tiny down today for very similar reasons. I know how heart-wrenching it is and I hope that your fond memories of Ellie will eventually bring you smiles. At least now our babies are happy and healthy again, eating all sorts of good food and playing with their toys!
God Bless Ellie, you, your family and my Tiny.
