morrmar I know there is nothing I or anyone else can say to make your pain go away or make it easier to bear but I hope you find comfort, as I have, in the knowledge that one day you and your wonderful dog will be together again.

Until then, stay strong for him and live your life to the fullest, knowing that he will be waiting for you.

Gracie's_Mom I am so sorry! I was right there along with Lexus, saying no, no, no, no, no. Even as I was reading I kept saying no. I was really rooting for him. I might not have posted much but I read all the updates and posts. I am so very sorry for you loss and your family's loss.

DaKari I am also very sorry CoalsMom, I know you and your family will miss him terribly. I think we have all lost pets here and can relate in some way but I believe it will be much harder when I lose my Dobes, they are such loyal and loving companions. They make our lives so full, how can it not be empty when they leave us.

VegasDobe Oh no! Im so very sorry to hear of your loss. I know you loved him dearly. And also that he loved his family dearly. I will keep yall in my thoughts.
Bless you all,

LapDog I thought the same thing when I saw a new post in rainbow bridge. I agree doberkim there are some wonderful dobes that will be there for us. I can't imagine how much you miss him and will always miss him, but things will get better. we are all here for you and I am also glad you got to be with him when it was his time....perhaps he woke up and made it through surgery just to see you again and be able to go like he did.

Okie-dobie So sorry for your loss take comfort that he went peacefully in your home with you close to him.

Luv_my_Bruno Oh I am so sorry. I'm glad he was at least able to be with you and in his home. Please know we are all here any time if you need someone to talk too.

I honestly am lost for words. I couldn't imagine, again I'm sorry for your loss.

07-08-2006 07:24 AM

TracyJo I am so sorry for your loss. Like Chaz said, we were all pulling for Cole. My heart goes out to you today. You will remain in our prayers....

Chaz I'm so sorry.

We were all pulling for Cole.

I know exactly how you feel, but I don't know what to say.

At least he was home where he felt loved.

Sleep softly my sweet boy

Cole had his surgery yesterday as some of you already know. This morning he got up and went outside. He seemed to be doing pretty good considering. He got up to follow me around work several times. Then this afternoon he started to go downhill. He was whining alot despite pain meds. My boss thought it could just be frustration and confusion and so I just laid on the floor with him and comforted him.

I brought him home with me tonight and he finally took a nap and seemed to be sleeping pretty good. He just whines softly a few times. 40 minutes into his nap I looked over at him as I did several times and he was gone.

I can't believe he is gone and I don't know what I will do without him. He adored me and I adored him. He was so trustworthy with my kids. I felt safe letting my kids play in the back yard by themselves with Cole there.
I felt safe in my home with Cole here.

I will miss his kisses that he gave so freely and the way he always had to lay on my lap and take up 3/4 of my bed.

Thank you Cole for being such a good boy and so devoted to me.

RIP my sweet boy, mommy loves you and will never forget you.
