We had to say goodbye to our sweet buddy today

Verdell the dog was the greatest friend ever. My wife and I are devastated but we knew it was coming. Ugh, the price our hearts pay for caring about our little ones. True story, I went home everyday for lunch to let Verdell out and everyday I would tell him exactly what time I would get home. If I was late he would bark at me and ignore me for an hour. Goodnight sweet prince until we meet again.

15. FYI: The URL in the post I am replying to DOESN'T work with copy-paste, but

the URL in the OP does. Don't know why.

17. The OP post has a number sign (#) before the "1" at the end. That's probably why:

I hope you will soon be able to remember Verdell without tears...

6. ...

Grieve not,
nor speak of me with tears,
but laugh and talk of me
as if I were beside you -

I loved you so -
'twas Heaven here with you

~Isla Paschal Richardson

I am in mourning too.....my beloved 14 year old cat went missing a couple of weeks ago; I was able to confirm yesterday he was killed by a coyote. I am so heart-broken, I cannot believe he is gone.

8. The link doesn't work, but if you copy paste it into the toolbar, then it does.

Your little guy was very cute. I am sorry for your loss. Two of my four cats are 14 now, so I dread the short lived of our friends. Mine normally reach 18-20, but that seems awfully close to me.

11. We lost our last dog in 2004

All the small white dogs I've met since then smile at me and immediately act as if they know me. The first few years after she left us, I honestly felt her leap on our bed and lay down. My husband thought I was crazy, but one day, he felt her too. She doesn't come as often, but she let me know she was out there. I like to think the small white dogs I meet are channeling her lovely spirit. You'll meet your beloved Verdell again someday, but I doubt he will leave your side. Or your heart. Blessings

13. Verdell inspired you to care for another beside yourself and you gave him a great life.

You'll soon be able to be grateful for the time you had together and the loss won't hurt so bad. They really become part of our existence, don't they? Verdell was a very good boy!

18. I am in tears you, your wife and

myself (my baby is 16 and it won't be long when I will be in the same boat). Every night I tell her I love her and if we had eternity together it would be enough time, any less is not bearable. I am sooooooo sad for you since I have 100% empathy.

22. Sweet little baby

So sorry for your loss.

Had to take one of my boys in yesterday for a big abscess on his neck. Doc drained it and all but today he's just laying around with this big old hole in him. I'm sure he'll be fine, but....
