Our Hearts are Broken

My little family suffered a tremendous loss on Tuesday evening.
Our little Hunny went to her reward after a very quick decline.

Sweet Hunny
1995-2009

She had not been feeling well on Sunday and was very quiet on Monday and by the time we got home Tuesday afternoon she had been sinking all day and we rushed her to the Vets. After some tests we got the news that she was a mighty sick little dog and had to let Hunny go. Even Pete and The Peach are both wandering around looking for her. We are both emotional wrecks and I'm a sloppy mess just writing this.

That's about all I can do today -

Take care,
edgar

So sorry for your loss. We had to put down our cat of 15 years (we got him about a month after we got married) and it was so hard to do. My heart goes out to you and Rico.

Edgar...I am so sorry that you had to put your dog to sleep. I went through that with my Chewy last March and it was very difficult thing to do. I still cry every time I think about her. I really miss her really bad. I know what you are going through and it is not easy at all. I had Chewy cremated so I still got her per say only in Ashes though.

I know you and Rico will miss her a great deal.

Take care

Glenna said...

I'm so sorry--it's so hard to lose a precious pet; it's so painful because they ARE your family. Condolences to all of you. Little Hunny was a lucky dog though--she had such a wonderful home.

Kathy said...

Oh, Edgar, I am so, so sorry to hear this. :( It is so terribly hard and hurts so much to do the right thing. It has been a little over a year since I had to do the same thing for my little girl. So I understand. You and Rico are in my thoughts and prayers. And Hunny is in excellent company waiting for you all at the Rainbow Bridge.

Laura said...

I'm so sorry to hear about your Hunny. I lost my 16-year old cat to cancer very quickly and it was devastating. You are in my thoughts.

karen said...

I am so sorry for your loss of Hunny. They are just like kids to all of us and very very hard to lose. Our Pepper is probably already showing her the ropes though. (((((hugs)))))

Kristen said...

Oh Edgar, I am so sorry for your loss! I've lost several pets myself and it is so awful. No one but an animal companion loves so unconditionally. Take comfort in the fact that you gave Hunny a great life.

AA thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

So very saddened to hear the news of little Hunny. I know how difficult this time is as I've experienced it many times over with my beloved dogs and cats...just a few months past I lost my rag doll kitty, Spysa, she was 14 years old.

I'm sorry to hear about Hunny. 14 years in people time is a lot of years in a dog's lifetime. I'm glad you both have Pete and Peach to dote upon.

Tessa said...

Run Free Dear Hunny
Our precious babies are so special to us and leave such a void in our lives. I do know, having lost our dear Scooter a couple of years ago, that as time passes, you will be able to speak about Hunny with a smile instead of tears and the memories you have of her will remain with you forever.
Thinking of you and Rico and sending huge hugs...

DonnaTN said...

It is heart breaking to make that decison to let one of your babies go and the feelings of loss are tremendous. I will keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh Edgar and Rico - what a terrible loss for your family. Pets do become a part of our family. I have a 14 yr old pomeranian, Lucy, who had a rough go this week and I know how tramatic it is. I am just so sorry to hear of Hunny's passing. We'll be remembering your family!

Edgar, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your little Hunny. I've been reading your blog for months now and haven't posted. I'm sorry my first post is on such a sad occasion. My sympathies...

Srinity said...

Edgar and Rico, I'm so sorry for your loss.
Here is a poet by an unknown author, I hope it gives you comfort:

I’m Still Here

Friend, please don't mourn for me,
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day,
And within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near,
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart,
As long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight.
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach.
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around,
And the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond,
The clear cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring,
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
You can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep,
And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, friend, I'm everyplace!

Berit said...

What a sweetheart!! You can tell just by seeing the picture! Such a charmer! :)

I must say I am glad that you have other dear pets to stay by your side at this sad time. Not to mention, so many people who care about you!

Maren said...

I am so very sorry about Hunny. It really is amazing how thoroughly these little guys can invade our homes and our hearts, becoming family in every sense of the word. My thoughts and prayers go with you and Rico. I know how hard it must have been to let her go. Please take care.

Marie-P said...

Edgar and Rico...my heart hurts for both of you. May you find peace in knowing that Hunny is surrounded by (and playing with) so many sweet and loving pets that have gone before her.
