RIP Dear Friend

Yesterday, I lost one of my best friends, Parker.   We tried everything, but he was 16, which is 91 in dog years for a big dog.  He was an amazing dog and I will miss him dearly. 
RIP sweet Parker Poodles - I will always love you.


  1. Heather, I'm so sorry. I was really hoping he'd pull through after your last post...

    Big hugs


  2. I'm so sorry, Heather. It is so hard to lose a pet, esp. one who was a companion for so long. Let yourself grieve, for regardless of him being a dog, you've lost a best friend.
    How is the other dog doing? Did he/she get to say goodbye?

  3. I have two other dogs and I took them both with us to the vet and they stayed in the room with us as he was put to sleep. When I took him in two weeks ago, the doctor suggested that we try steroids and another round of laser therapy. This worked wonders for the first week, but the second week was horrible. I'm sure that he was ready, but I certainly was not.

    Nicki, thank you for the advice about spending time with him. Before I took him in the first time, I thought about what you said and took some time off of work to spend with him. That really made a big difference. Thank you!

  4. So sorry for your loss - he looks like he had a big heart! Thanks for all your visits over at mine, apologies I've not come over to say hi sooner. Caireen x
