Sad news 
6th-Jun-2010 02:50 am
My heart is heavy as I write this. Gremlin...died last night.

It was shortly after he was put into bed. We rushed him to the Veternary Hospital but there was no hope, there was no breathing or heart beat.

I'm in shock and can't sleep. It was so unexpected.

I look at his pictures and keep crying. Everywhere I turn, there is Gremlin stuff, even in the fridge. He was my beautiful baby and he brought great joy to our lives. He had a long and wonderful life (15 years) and I will miss him terribly. Nothing will be the same without him. I hope he's in a better place now.

Here are some pictures of him I wanted to share. I will post more as I go through his pictures.

I am so sorry. I know the pain and loss, and the huge hole left by a family member and friend like he was.

Thanks for the wishes. It does feel like a big hole and the house seems empty without him.

My deepest sympathies to you, Kalinda. Gremlin was such a fine little fellow, so full of personality. *hugs*

Thanks. He was wonderful dog.

I'm so sorry to hear such sad news. You must be terribly upset.

Oh, Kalinda, I am so sorry to hear about Gremlin--he was very precious. We are such Gremlin fans here. We'll pray for you and him. I'm sure he is happy and waiting for you. You were very lucky to have each other.

Kal, I don't know what to say, as I know nothing will help you get through these next hour and days.

Looking at those pictures will bring back memories ... as it does for all of us who have "met" him.

He didn't suffer - of which you can be so thankful - yes, he is with our Misty, Perry ... and my Jaykub. God loves his animals - they are loved eternally.

Remember the love, the fun ... and the naughtiness!

Remember him.

May he R.I.P.

Thanks for the encouragement. It's greatly appreciated.

Oh I am so sorry, Kal. I've been there before and know how hard it is (as you know one of my boys is not well at 14).

Be kind to yourself and talk about him lots. It will make you cry but it helps.

Thinking of you


6th-Jun-2010 04:42 pm (UTC)
I'll do that. Thanks. I really appreciate it. I hope your boy doesn't suffer much.
6th-Jun-2010 01:41 pm (UTC)
Oh! I grieve with you. He was a wonderful little fur person and I smiled every time you showed us a glimpse into his life with you. *hugs*
6th-Jun-2010 04:43 pm (UTC)
Thanks much. It is appreciated. He was a wonderful furry person.
6th-Jun-2010 02:27 pm (UTC)
I am so sorry to hear that. He was such a dear little dog.

It must have been such a shock to you too, him going so suddenly.

He had a long life and a peaceful ending.

"I grieve with thee"

awwww *HUGS*

from both Z and I and Mab. He will be missed. Oh *hugs* Poor darling. I know what it's like to lose a loved pet and friend.


If there's anything I can do to help let me know. :(

Thanks, Em, Z and Mab. It's much appreciated. I'm sure Gremlin will miss his fan club. I'll let you know, thanks for the offer.

I'm so very sorry,it is a shock when one of the familly, be they human or furry, dies so sudenly. It's no comfort now, but it will be in future, he died with out suffering a long drawn ilness at a good age for a little boy and if there is a heaven then dogs get a free pass for all the love they give during their lives.
6th-Jun-2010 04:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the support. That is comforting that he didn't have to suffer long.

*hugs* I'm so sorry. I know what it feels like to lose a pet after that many years, it's heartbreaking. You're i my thoughts today.

Thanks for the comfort. It's much appreciated.
7th-Jun-2010 10:10 pm (UTC) - Hope from kids who have near-death experiences
So very sorry. Stayed home from work in 1995 and cried in bed all day for a lost cat in 1995. Bird died, too. Know how it feels.

In books about near death experiences, kids who go through the tunnel to the light report that their dead pets, unlike dead relatives and friends, come into the tunnel to greet the children. I doubt if kids can pretend these reports.

I had a dream after my mother's bird died: I was beneath my balconey, and his cage was outside above me. The radio was playing - I don't play music - and some woman was singing: "Love came forever, love came forever, with you." Love came for ever for Gremlin with you, and for ever for you with Gremlin.

Hope this helps.

With sympathy,

I would like to believe that's true. Thanks for sharing. It does help.

don't be sad....gremlin is in doggie heaven, playing with other doggies like him....be happy that he has company up there and perhaps one day you will be there to see him again as well.

i must go. this is making me cry. maybe i should look at my private photo of bruce greenwood in starfleet uniform (you know from the 2009 movie star trek?)...now that handsome face makes me happy anytime. he also causes me to act silly and have goosebumps just looking at him...EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

and yes he is a canadian!!

Thanks. It's nice to think of it that way.
