This is so sad! I am sorry for your loss. I don’t know how my Aunt’s chihuahua is holding up for 17+ years and still going strong.

Oh no way :( I’m so sorry, Amanda. Darcy was amazing xxx

I’m so sorry for your loss, we lost our puppy a few months ago so the memories and pain are still fresh for me. Darcy looks adorable and like a very happy dog.

Oh, the little dear. I’m sorry to hear about Darcy. I know what you are going through, Amanda. I believe that she will always be around you. You will feel her presence, and you will smile. This poem has always brought me comfort, maybe it will do the same for you? Rainbow Bridge…
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

Thank you so much everyone.
It’s been a tough week and I’ve been pretty devastated over losing him. It hurts more when you are away and can’t say goodbye.
Thank you for your kindness.

I’m so sorry….thoughts are with you.

I’m so sorry to hear about your dear friend Darcy. I’m a huge dog lover myself and know how difficult it is when they leave for their next adventure. My boys Biggie and Tucker are looking after him in doggie heaven. xox Megan
