There will be no love without hurt.

Today at 3:00pm we put Timber down. I don't have a lot to say other than my heart is broken and I know it will get better with each day. But for today, pray that the pain goes away soon.

When my husband and I got home we raised a glass of wine to her. Even with the hurt today, her being with us was well worth the pain today.

Thanks for being my friends.


  1. I am so, so sorry. I still cry when I think of my dog Buddy. You're in my prayers.

  2. Oh, I am soooo sorry. I know how awful it is.
    When our dear Irish Setter got sick, we had to put her down too. She was 14 and grew up with our babies, protecting them, patient with them, loving them. I bawled at the Vet's office and all the way home. And again when I had to tell the kids and my hubby. The house seemed so dreadfully still and empty without her. To this day, we still cannot bring ourselves to get another dog. It was like losing one of the family.
    My heart and thoughts are truly with you.

  3. Oh Carol .. I'm so sorry ! I have tears in my eyes .. Timber will always be around you, watching over you and make you smile just by thinking of her.

    I lost my two dogs - Silky & Tiger; a few years ago; I wasn't in the country .. but Silky came in my dream that day and we played like she was a puppy ... when I called out to her to come back with me, she kept walking away .. I woke up to the sound of the phone, and it was my uncle calling to tell me she had just passed.

    Dogs are the most loyal friends one can have .. Timber was a loved pup in your home & in your hearts .. She'll always watch over you from Doggy Heaven.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. Each pet has it's own little personality and charactor that is unique from all others. I hope that you will be comforted by your loved ones and that time will heal the sorrow. May God Bless you and your family in this difficult time, Sincerely, Susan
