Hagan 12/28/10 - 12/21-19

Our sweet boy, Hagan, would have been 9 today. He left us a week ago, on the winter solstice - it wasn’t the shortest day of the year for us, but the longest and the saddest. My heart is broken in a million pieces, I can't stop crying, I miss him so much.

So sorry for the loss of your friend. They do own our hearts and when they leave our heart goes with them.

I'm so sorry to hear this. It's so tough when they leave us and we never stop missing them, but one day we wake up and can smile with our memories. Until then though....sending my thoughts and prayers your way.

Run free, Hagan.

Zen, I was so sorry to read this. I do know the pain you feel. We still feel the loss of Duggan 7 months later and had a good cry remembering him from last Christmas and just missing his presence this Christmas. I have come to the realization that we can't have the joy and love of owning one of these dogs without also feeling the horrible grief of losing them. Kind thought sent your way.

So sorry Zen--this winter has been a bad one for our Dobes. I lost my friends old bitch Jersey who I was tending while he was traveling for work--even though we knew she might go anytime is was a shock to find her, in my kitchen, passed away and then just days later my very old Toad who had just had his 14th birthday took a big turn for the worse and we went to the clinic and I came home alone.

We never, ever have them long enough.

Be free and well Hagan--Jersey and Toad will both be pleased to run with you.

I'm very sorry for your loss.



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader.
She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Hugs to you and your family. I know your pain well especially since Coco left last year on the winter solstice. I was crying this year too.

Hagan would have lots of DT friends to greet him. It makes me smile through my pain to think of all of our loveys running and playing together in good health.

I am truly sorry for your loss.

Hagan

No words ever seem to be able to touch the inconsolable pain we feel when one of our beloved dogs leave us here for better things. That being said, I have felt comfort LATER, knowing that there are folks just like me, waiting in the wings, lifting me up when I couldn't bear to breathe. We are always here... now, when you may not be able to feel it and later, when you see that little glimmer of light in the fog. And that's what life is all about, helping others when they feel they can not help themselves. Love and hugs to you from all of us.

I really have no idea why I did this one day - Maybe feeling down - really down , So I pulled up the rainbow tread on here and read and read - along with crying and more crying - The I came up on a tread about Dobegal losing Roxy - As I read I came up on a post , started by Dobegal - Why do we do this ? With a reply post from SeiYa : How true these words Spoken - So I thought I would do a repost of the SeiYa reply , Hope this is OK .

During my grief I posted a thread “Why do we do it”. I was asking why we continue to bring Dobermans in our lives when we know they are not healthy. SeiYa posted a reply that I have kept and wish to share as I think it speaks to all us.
“We do it because these dogs awaken something that was dormant inside us. While we physically have them in our lives they make us laugh, they bring us to tears, and they teach us something about life. Part of me thinks they never truly leave us. They're too stubborn and too protective. They fill our hearts with such joy, they insinuate themselves so deeply into our hearts and minds. This is why we love them, we love them so deeply and with such feeling that we cannot fathom saying goodbye. Yet we love them enough to say goodbye with dignity and grace. Is it truly goodbye? I'd like to think not. While we collect memories, and we can savor them when the pain of losing them dulls. It is never enough, they leave us empty and wanting to fill the void created by their absence. Everything about a Doberman draws you in. The vibrant color and their expressive eyes. But what holds you is their capacity to love. This, this is what keeps us coming back even though we die a small death each time we have to say goodbye.”

I too, am very sorry for your loss. I am crying just reading this and all the posts and ever since my sweet Squirrel was diagnosed with DCM/CHF this past July, I cry quite often, knowing what is to come. She just turned 7 years old end of Oct.
I agree with so many of the replies...as to why we put ourselves thru this with this breed. And I agree with that older post about how these pups do something to us, to our souls that I never expected to happen to me.
I had one dog growing up...an Irish Setter named "Penny" that we got when I was 3 and she died while jogging with me my senior yr in high school (1988). It was so heartbreaking that my parents still have yet to replace her.
I however, chose at age 42 to get a precious Dobie as my first dog as an adult. It is just she and I, so as you can imagine, she is everything to me...my life revolves around her.
I feel all the pain from these posts and know that I am not alone in how I feel now and how I will feel later.

As others have said as well, you are not alone. And I know I will also lean on this forum for the support and love needed to overcome the sadness.

I pray for you and all the others to have comfort from our Lord who made these special creatures so we can look back with joy on all the memories we have and to look forward to more in the future...when the time is right.

God bless you and Hagan and all the others. They will always be in our hearts.
