Loss

August 3, 2011

I'm at a loss for words. We had to say goodbye to our sweet Pancake on Thursday.

I took him to the vet because I knew something was wrong. 
He cried in the car, but purred when I held him at the office. My sweet boy.
Never did I imagine that I would be coming home without him. We were not prepared for this. He was only four years old.

The day he died I woke up with him next to me. I will never forget that.

Pancake, you are missed beyond words.

Give your pets an extra squeeze for me tonight.

  6. Oh goodness Julie I am so so sorry for your loss. I know how pets become a member of your family and it's hard when they leave us. Try to remember all the love you gave him and how great of a life he did have with you that he couldn't have had with anyone else.

  8. Oh, I am so sorry! It is so hard losing someone you love. We had to put two of our pets down last year, so I know exactly what you're going through, but only four years old- that's so sad! Poor baby Pancake, you will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
