Well my friends , itís with a very heavy and broken heart to report that Miss Ali Went to the bridge this morning .
I will post up a tribute to her when I can seee the keyboard without a flood of tears
I will try and do this one quick story , as we finished filling her grave , the hoe and been gone maybe 3 minutes , i was moving dirt around to make it perfect , then , out of nowhere , it started to lightly rain , I sat in my chair I had taken out there and just looked up at the sky , it was tears from heaven . I said well girl , that did not take long to get there and enjoy running in the grass playing ball again , pain free , love you and we will see you again one of these days :crying::crying::crying::crying::crying:
I'm so sorry, Ken. We knew it was coming, but that sure doesn't make it any easier.
They are NEVER with us long enough.
Hey Ken... My thoughts, condolences and prayers are directed your way.
I will wait to read your tribute to sweet Ali to comment further.
I'm sorry this is so hard on you but she was your girl to the end.
Go Ali--go where the good dogs go to run free, be well and happy--you'll find several of my boys there and you can boss them around all you like.
Mel already said it--we never have them long enough...but they live on in memory.
With many hugs for you and for Mr. B who'll be wondering where his partner has gone--many pets. And for us all many memories of Ali...
ABTLH--I hate it when these dogs (and cats too) leave us--they leave such holes in our lives.
God please bless our Ali ...
And to Ali ..please pass the word to all of our other rainbow friends how much we miss them........now you take care girl and know that we all love you so much.
Do not worry.... we will all work to keep Mr. Business in line just like you did girl. Love you so much girl. :crying:
I am very sorry Doc - I know your heart aches. The loss of a loved one is very hard. :crying::crying:
Hugs all around for you and the family.
I liked the story of Ali running and playing ball - thank you.
I am sorry for your loss of your sweet girl Ali. RIP Ali and run forever free
Ali, those you touched during your long life will cherish you in their hearts forever,
Your Doberman mission has been fulfilled- good girl!
May you Rest In Peace, Ali. You served your family well...
Condolences to you and your family, Ken, on this dreaded and sad day. :|
Oh Ken, my heart is breaking for you. Please know you are in my thoughts.
I'm so sorry for your loss, Ken. R.I.P., Ali.
I have always liked the idea that kindred spirits seek each other out across time because it explains why sometimes you feel a sense of immediate recognition and/or bonding with some people and animals. It's a reacquaintance rather than a first meeting. Peter S. Beagle has a wonderful story about best friends and pets called A Dance for Emilia. And nobody bonds like a doberman. So I'm pretty sure you'll meet up again somewhere down the road.
Sad that your time is up with your girl. Hopefully she will come to you another day.
My sympathy for your families broken hearts.
I'm so sorry. Knowing it's coming doesn't make it any easier.
Oh Ken, I had such strong vibes about you and Ali this morning I was going to email you. I am in tears thinking of the gap she is leaving in your house and lives.
I know a piece of your heart was buried with her and I am grieving with you both.
O'h good-brother KEN, so very sorry Miss Ali time had come...she lived to an extra long age.
- the good ones, hang on as long as possible, because the mom & dad are almost to good to them, and they know it
- the seniors are hard to loose, when we raise and care with much Love
When I lost old Amy (7 years ago), it was the most I ever cried in my Life...hard to cope and took much time to heal.
- expect Mr. Business to step up into her shoes...and needs his mom and dad, even more / they grieve to
- so very sad, this day had come
Oh Doc I'm so sorry. My heart is broken for you. I've been so busy the last few days but I just said to myself I've got to get on the forum to see about any updates regarding Miss Ali. I think Coco nudged me here because the old gals are having a great time together.
Like Rose said knowing what is coming definitely doesn't make it any easier at all. I know that one well.
Ditto what everyone else has said.
Take comfort in knowing that she had the best forever family. Go ahead and grieve. It's going to take a minute to get over the shock of her not being there.
I am so sad for you.
I've got plenty of animals that crossed the bridge that are happy to meet her!
Condolences to your family.
Oh no! I'm so sorry. My condolences to you and your family. :(
I am so so sorry, my heart is broken for you. You gave her a wonderful life and she is now pain free and running with all the other dobies lost over the years [emoji3590]

I have no words, and they wouldn't help anyway, but you know I'm feeling your pain.
Big hugs to you and Mr. B.
Thanks for all the kind words and prayers for us and our Ali girl
Rosemary nailed it , we all know that , that day will come , yet when the vet hands you a death sentence, it goes off the scale . This was the first time for us dealing with cancer in one of our dogs , itís terrible to go threw and watch it affect our , your , pride and joy . I keep asking why Ali ? She didnít deserve this , then I think about all the others , kids , people , brothers and sisters , why ? How could this happen ?
I feel so worthless , you all know that Doberman look , the one that they depend on us to protect them look , when itís storming they donít feel good , they look to us for that security , and I could not produce this time . Yes , I know dang good and well that we did everything humanly possible to help her , it donít help any , for me anyway . I was talking to Doc yesterday when he got here and we were talking about Ali , he said Ken , you have done everything you can , but as I said , not even your best effects are just not enough sometimes .
Ali was in the house with the wife when Doc got here , it was time for me , I walked in and the Mrs gave her one last kiss and rub , I said Ali , itís pretty out , letís go outside and I picked her up and carried her out and laid her on here favorite rugs , she knew doc ! He lended down and kissed her head and very gently rubbed her head , Ali raised her head and tried to give him a kiss :crying: she had her head laying across my lap , as always , as I rubbed her head and said Im so sorry girl , we canít make you well , but doc is going to take that damn pain away , In a second , I felt her relax and watched her close her eyes for the last time , my girl was now pain free again .
Poor Mr. Business , he was a trouper , everyday , he would try and motivate her to get up , to eat and to be there for his best friend , he knew something was terribly wrong with her. As I carried Ali out to her resting place , she urinated as I carried her , all over my leg and left a trial out . After the services was over , I let him out , he picked up on the urine and followed it to her gave and there it stopped . He looked at me and then just laid down for a second looking at her grave , then got up and walked and walked around it . I took him out last night and said letís play some ball , he ran out and got his ball and then came back and sit next to me , ball was no fun with out Big Sissy . He has laid around all morning , he is heart broken . He knows she is gone :crying:
It is so quite here ! No Dobers chasing each other threw the house , no me , saying Ali or Kadin quit that , or come here and letís play ball in the house , which we could only do when Mrs Doc was not around , lol
Well my friends , I canít thank you all enough for all the support you have gave our family , so what is next ? I donít know , but I have found when one takes part of your heart with them , the best thing to try , try ! And make it whole again is a new little puppy , not a replacement for a dog that is gone , but to start a new chapter in our book .
Love you all
Sobbing.....Iím so sorry [emoji24]
Just saw this on a Facebook group.....Ali would say this to you....
Thank you for taking my pain away,
I know it was a hard decision to make,
Just between me and you,
My body had taken all it could take,
I really hated having to leave you,
My favorite place ever, is by your side,
But as much as I tried to cover it up,
The pain I was in, I couldn't hide,
I know the decision you made was difficult,
But your choice was the right one that day,
It had gotten to where my life wasn't fun,
I didnt want to eat or play,
You gave everything you had for me,
To make my life an amazing place,
The memories I have will be eternal,
Even time could never erase!
I know you struggled with that choice,
It was really the right thing to do,
Please remember I am never far away,
Because my spirit lives inside of you,
If I could leave you with one thought forever,
These words will always ring true,
I promise to live in your heart for eternity,
And I will always love you![emoji173]

Oh, Ken. I'm so very sorry for your loss. The gift we give to them is so very devastating to us. We take on the burden of pain and loss to spare them suffering. It's so incredibly obvious the depth of love that you and your wife have for Ali, and that she was a cherished member of your family.
I believe deep in my soul that our animal companions have a place beside us in the world to come. Until that time, may your memories bring you comfort in this time of grief and loss. We're all here for you.
I am so very sorry. I hoped you and your wife would have more time with Ali. As others have said, they are never with us long enough. Ali is at peace and time will help ease your pain.
Thinking of you today.....:crying:
