This makes me sad, my heart goes out to you,
Sad story , sorry for your loss
Our Daisy left us almost 2 years ago , miss the girl
So sorry for your loss. I feel your pain. We lost Maggie Mae 1 year and 1/2 ago due to a burst gall bladder. She was 12 1/2 which is getting up there for a Chesapeake Bay Retriever.
I still think about her every day. We had her from a 8 wk old puppy until she passed.
I always think of the song Nature Boy at times like this, especially the line:
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return"
Bless you for being Daisy's friend and caretaker. She had a good life because of you.
Bless Daisy’s heart, Boris. Bless yours, too, for giving her a great home for a long ime.
WOW Boris, I am so sorry for your family ( Daisy included ) but it was obviously some thing she had to do , Know she loves you unconditionally and would not want anyone else to be her best friend!
I thank each and every one of you, for your thoughtful replies.
And I apologize for some of the curt posts I've made here in the last fortnight, on other threads. I've been, I guess you could say, distracted by my own sense of loss.
I hope so. For so many years, I had unconditional acceptance from her. I wondered over the last few months, if she was having second thoughts about having been captured from the wild by us at age nine weeks - like, she wishes it had been an 11 year old boy instead. I'm encouraged by the posts here, affirming what I think happened which was, parts of her brain were telling her it was her duty to make a clean break of it - so we might never see her any further removed from the majestic creature she had been for so many years. Most of you guys know what I mean: A pet doesn't get an opportunity to leave only that most favorable impression sometimes. They go weak and trembling to the vet and our experience of holding them while the doctor administers the powerful substance is one of the most lasting recollections that the survivors end up with.
Lucky are the animals that have one last feisty, remarkable day (like my ferret, little Bubba had when he played so hard, jumping at and grabbing at the hand broom, and he barked for the first and last time) and end up gone before the end of the following day. But I get confused. I see all these pictures we took when Daisy was young and I begin to imagine a young dog having escaped. But what really happened was, I think, was a dog, once young and agile, went off into the woods in search of the animal it had once been, to be reborn again as a resilient young pup; ready to learn and experience all the best things that dogs like to do.
its hard not to personify , but they know what its all about, and if she had any regrets she would have disappeared sooner , No , Boris she was talking to you right to the night , just remember the love in her eyes when she saw you and how her tail wagged when you played or were together , and she loved every moment, for sure!
RIP Daisy... she out playing now with all the other good dogs who have crossed the rainbow bridge...
That’s quite the way for a dog to depart. Maybe it’s better than holding them while the vet does her business, but I don’t know. It’s always tough to lose a pet. They’re truly our best friends in many ways. I’m sorry Boris.
Sorry for the loss of Daisy. I've always enjoyed the stories here where you mentioned her. Lucky you and Lucky Daisy to have such a wonderful home.
That’s heart-breaking B.
Her exit is about as poetic as it gets due to her arrival though !
Peace to you and yours and I hope Daisy went easy under a tree.
It never gets any easier, does it? You’d think by now we’d be used to outliving our dogs.
It does sound like she had a circular path. That’s a consolation. Back to the woods...
Do yourself a favor and go see The Art of Racing In the Rain. I don’t see you as much of a “let’s go to the movies” person, and I’m not either; but make an exception for this one. Or read the book.
sorry to read your news
Daisy's departure will make home feel empty for a while.
I make up for the absence of furbabies @ our place by visiting w/ the dogs that are parked outside our neighborhood coffee shops.
Peace - Deeve
RIP Daisy Girl!!
I’m very sad to hear of your loss.
I’m glad you had each other.

I had to edit that one, and apologies for my spell correct on that one!!!
so sorry for your loss boris.it's never easy.
Sorry for your loss.
I'm so sorry.
