Heidi Louise is running and seeing with two good eyes at Rainbow Bridge with Grandma, Toby, Ivy, Oreo, Baby Freckles, Tuffy, Max, Petunia the goat, Gizzie the pig, your beloved horse, Fancy's Dancer, Tsultry Gaze, Sabrina, Patches, Lady and the Ferrets. I really really believe this and someday I will be with them all again and everything will be wonderful. Heidie had a long full life and felt no pain at the end. Her sickness was making her miserable,always thirsty and hungry, it was ruining her quality of life. We will always remember what a charachter she was, how she loved to dress up and was always the center of attention. I remember standing in front of a restaurant when I saw your car pull up and she had a fancy embroidered sweater on and a birthday hat because it was her birthday and you were picking up carry out. A lot of people went out and got daschunds after meeting Miss Weez, she was always so sassy and full of herself. You gave her a good life. My heart is breaking for Heidi but I can't stand what it must be doing to all of you. How wonderful when I logged on to see if you had said anything to see 35 responses from such good hearted people. It is really wonderful how you are all there for each other. Thank you everyone.

Marcelle said...

Donna nad I are in the same boat. Even though it was November when I lost the kitties, it still is hard and still hurts. I'm happy that I have the memory of them, but it isn't the same. Grieve anyway you have to or need to, because that's what's going to help you get through this right now.

I love you.

This breaks my heart. I am so so sorry. Please do not beat yourself up at what you did or didn't do in the moment of crisis. NO ONE knows what they will do under those circumstances and your panic was a natural response to seeing a beloved pet terribly injured. I am so sorry.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. Your courage, love, and devotion to your dog and one another is admirable. You all are wonderful people and she was lucky to have you in her life. She is in doggie heaven having the time of her life and you all will be together again one day. In the mean time, cherish your precious memories.

Melodie said...

I feel so sorry for you and your family, Ashley! It was Heidi's time to go, I'm sure, but to lose her in such an awful way makes it so much worse on you.
She's in doggie heaven now, and once your move through your grief, you can take comfort in that.

Thank you to your mom and to Mr.Ashley for coming here to comment. It's so hard when shit like this happens because we're so far away. We feel like we're close to you, yet we're so disconnected. It's when a horrible thing like this happens that we feel so separated and so useless. Your mom and Mr.Ashley coming here to say something to us (and you) helps us feel closer, too.
I'm just bawling here for you guys, Ashley. I seriously am.
You have incredible love and support around you and in each other. I'm so sorry.

Ms. Sensibleshoes said...

So sorry, it is not your fault.

Not at all.

Not one bit.

Freaking out is not wrong, it is instinct and a demonstration of how much you care for her. We all respond differently to crisis, no reaction is right or wrong.

Nothing I can say that hasn't already been said - my deepest condolences to your whole family (you, Mr. Ashley, Big Kid and E-Bull) as it was patently obvious Ms. Heidi Louise was and will always be a beloved family member. Know that those who do know you and those of us who only know you through the 'net are with you and your family and giving/sending you mountains of love. The words that everyone has expressed but the especially touching ones from Mr. Ashley and your Mom will bring you comfort.

Much love and comfort from me and mine to you and yours!

Ashley and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my best childhood dog last May and remember the pain you must be feeling. I saw this sign a few months ago: "Heaven is where you go to spend forever with all of the dogs that you have loved" ... and for the first time, his memory gave me hope instead of tears. I hope it does something for you as well.

Oh Ashley...I'm so sorry...It hurts SO SO bad, I know, it's going to keep hurting. She was your fist, just like Vinny was mine and remember how you were there for me when I lost him? There's nothing quite like the pain of losing a pet, I was told it's because they love you so purely and that's how you love them back. How lucky are we to have experienced their love? I'm here for you, hurting for you, I hope I can take some of that pain away because like Mom said, she's with everyone, who went before her, right now...they were there waiting for her and are comforting her now, and I hope that comforts you. God, I'm sorry...I love you. xoxo Catfish
