We Will Miss You Jesse

Nel's doggy passed
away today.
Jesse was the best
dog, and we
are very sad that
he left us.
Please say a few
words of encouragement
to Nel, as this is such
a hard time for
her and her husband,
We will miss you, Jesse.
  I love you.


Jan Tanis said... ♥ breaks for you. Jesse looks like a sweet dog. It's difficult saying goodbye to one of your furry kids...I know. In December I had to make the decision to put my 4 1/2 yr old Benny to sleep. He woke up one morning lame in one of his rear legs...and by night-time, he was having seizures and couldn't hear or so - suffering from acute neurological problems. At the time I knew it was the one and only thing I could still do for him. But, knowing that and dealing with the death of my beloved pet was something awful. I still miss him. I know you will miss Jesse too. It's so sad that they only live such short lives, compared to ours. I'll say a prayer for you that your heart will heal from this loss. Hugs, Jan

We love them so and when they leave to cross the Rainbow Bridge, our heart brakes. Oh well I know!
In thoughts and prayers with Nell and all of you!

ANNE said...

So so sorry. Jesse looks so very much like my Lucy who left me last year. The most difficult and heartbreaking part of pet ownership bar none.

This breaks my heart.....I didn't even know Jesse but he looked like a smart, loyal, wonderful dog. I've lost 2 animals in the last 3 yrs. and have another that was in the hospital for 3 days.....My heart goes out to you Nel. They are such a precious part of the family and I pray God comforts you and your family. Roxie

Your broken hearts are in my prayers. Losing a pet is so difficult. They make our life on earth so very special. Jesse was blessed to have been loved and cared for by you, Nel, and your amazing family.

May you find the comfort you need in your memories and photographs.

I framed a photograph of my husband's first Chocolate Lab, Shelby in a pretty white frame, when she passed. It's in the kitchen above the place where The Chocolate Gousse eats. I tell Gousse, (pronounced Goose)that Shelby is her guardian angel.
The photo also gives comfort to my Mr D.
Hugs and Hugs!

Oh- I am so sorry, Nell. It is so hard to lose a beloved pet. The only consolation is that they cross the rainbow bridge and are beyond al pain and aches and suffering. God bless you as you deal with a heart that I know is aching. xo Diana

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend. Losing a pet is one of the most difficult things to endure. Let the memories of happy days together, sustain you.

Awww Nel, i'm so sorry for you and all of the family during this terrible time. Our pets are family and losing one is always a heartbreak. Jesse looks like such a sweetie in those photos, and i'm sure that she was a wonderful dog who was given a wonderful life with all of you….
Take care,

Patricia said...

Dear Nel, so sorry to hear of Jesse's parting. Our pets become an integral part of our family and it is heartbreaking to say Goodbye. She looks like a beautiful dog, you will grieve and you will always remember her. Hugs to you

On a moment like this there are only words to comfort you.

pinks said...

Aw I am so sorry for this very sad news. Animals are just as much part of the family and its terrible. I know my dog is like a little brother to me. I'm so sorry for your loss. Big hugs :(

My dear friend,

it is with tears in my throat that are welling up to my eyes that I write this...when a dog has that look with the eyes so bright, looking up at his/her master, it just tears at my heart. They need us, they love us so....please give Nel my most sincere wishes for her to remember this sweet pet and rejoice for having her love. That is all we can do, is savor the memory that nothing can take away. Oh how glad I am that you came to visit me....let us celebrate what we have, for in the blink of a butterflie's eye, it is transformed. Though we can't see it, all that we love is still with us.

Hugs to you my dear friend. Anita

Dear Nel and Renecke,
I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Jesse. I know what a painful time it is for you having lost my Miss Beazy Lee nearly 2 years ago. Jesse will always be apart of your heart and cherished memories. I pray God gives you comfort in the days ahead.
My deepest condolences!!
With love, Celestina Marie

I am so sorry to read this...
I love animals and I can understand your pain... I know it's hard to do it right now and you need time to realise it, but it's really important to keep all the nice past memories... Everything that made you smile!
And I really believe that this is what Jesse wants, as well!
Rest in peace, sweet furry candy!

Oh dear, my love to Nel and hubby. I know how it feels to lose a doggy as I have lost a couple myself.But you know they know how much we loved them and always looked after them as if they were our very own children. That love was returned to us many times over, Jesse was a beautiful dog, love those colors. He has crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge and is at peace. Blessings, Lu

Tulla and Catie said...

Some years ago I also lost my beloved dog with only 2 years, far too short! I was very sad und missed it for a long time. So I know how Nel and her husband feel. Please forward them my greetings and hugs,

Teresa said...

Nel and Renecke,

This is one of the saddest and (also) happiest things of life. That we loved a being so much that it hurts when we have to bid farewell.

Dogs aren't really dogs but I guess - by this post - you already realized it. They're angels put on the path of people with kindred spirits and huge hearts. God will welcome him and find a home he can rule and mess up until you meet again.

Be Happy for him as he's seen already the Face of his Creator. That's how important they are - they get there sooner than us.

Hang in there,

(((HUGS)))) to you and sweet Nel...thank you dear friend for coming back to visit, and my heart truly is with you. Have a calming day. Anita

Barbara Bermond said...

Nice post,
Have a lovely week!

Kristie Franklin said...

Oh Sherri,

What a beautiful dog! This is heartbreaking! I've been through the passing of two dogs and there is really nothing you can say that will make the grieving any easier. When you have a pet in your life, they are as much your family as your children are. All I can tell Nel is that the sadness will pass over time. You never forget them, you just accept their passing as part of the circle of life.

I am so sorry for your loss Nel.

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Dear Sheri
My heart is saddened hearing the loss of this beautiful companion.
Our animals bring such joy into our lives... Give Nel and her husband a warm hug for me...

Thank you dear friend, for always taking time to visit.. I am so pleased you enjoyed the little chick.. The fairies in the background.. This is one of my acrylic paintings I had done a few years ago... I too, love fairies.

Alina said...

So sorry to hear this :0( Please try and hold on to the good memories. Time will help you feel better but in the meantime, here goes a BIG hug! XO

Susan said...

Dear Nel....I just read where your beloved doggie passed away and wanted to tell you how sorry I am.

Our fur babies truly take hold of part of our hearts. Our lives, once they come to us, will never be the same. And once they leave us, again, life will be changed forever.

May you have many special memories and photos to keep tucked in your heart until the day comes when you meet once again. Susan

Dearest Nel, I am so sorry for your loss. From my own personal experience, I know how difficult this goodbye can be. We've waved farewell to three of our own.
Focus on those beautiful memories, just look at those pretty eyes.
Peace to you, love.

OMG!! I used to have a dog that looked exactly like theirs!! Her name was Bonnie and she was the sweetest dog. I understand their sorrow.
