So sorry for your loss. What a great joy he has been since he came to you & Shanoa. I enjoyed all the stories and pics you have shared and will miss viewing them. RIP Simon.


What would I do without them?

Nicole -

I haven't been on here recently and was wondering how Simon was doing. So sad to hear this but glad he did not suffer long. He was so lucky to find you and your family for his final years. Run free Simon!

Oh Nicole, I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Somehow I missed this post, and I'm so sorry I didn't offer my condolences while we were corresponding earlier in the week. You must of thought me terribly insensitive. Please forgive me.

I hope Simon is resting peacefully and you're in my thoughts.

Not at all. I appreciate your kind words, as well as everyone else's. It means a lot to me to know how loved he was, even by people that never met him.

Nicole, my heart bleeds for you. I just came in here to check and see how Simon was doing. I am so sorry for our loss. I am in tears, because my own pain is still there. I hope Shanoa and you are coping with Simon being gone. My younger doberman is still lonely (mid sept she lost her sis to OS). I see her loneliness in her eyes, and it hurts me.

Big hugs for you and Shanoa!

RIP Simon.

I am so sorry for your loss! I was on here one day and thought I left a message to you but I don't see it. The pics you have of him are beautiful. There isn't anything I can add, everyone has said it all and I do hope every word has helped you. I read all the posts and now in tears for you. I am just so sorry but at least take comfort knowing he is running free and in no pain, one day waiting for you. RIP Simon

Oh Nicole.... I am just seeing this. There's not much to say other than I'm sending hugs your way, as well as my deepest sympathies. You know how I feel about you and Simon - you were meant for him, and he was meant for you (and Shanoa.) He truly won the dog lottery when you took him home. It was evident in all of the photos of him that he was really happy with you, and it was also evident how sweet he was.

My heart goes out to you and your husband. xoxoxo

Just discovered you lost your boy. I am so sorry you and your family lost Simon. He couldn't have had a better home in which to spend his life. Thank you for taking such great care of him.

Godspeed, Simon.

I'm glad Simon is back home with you. It certainly opens up the wound a bit, but I remember feeling relieved when my girl's ashes came back home. I hope it will bring you some comfort in time too.

It's been a month. Finally managed to put his ashes in the urn yesterday. I still look for him all the time and miss him terribly. Some pictures make me smile, others make me cry. I can't watch any videos yet.
