Hard to say goodbye


Retired Oregon HOC
Our 17yr old doxie, Ziggy, went to the Rainbow Bridge today. Life won't be the same without her. :(:(:(



Sorry to hear about your fur friend. We also lost our Cowboy in November last year. It is very hard to loose them. They become a big part of our family..

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. We went through that twice in the past 8 months with our 7 year old lab, and our 16 year old cat. It is never easy. :-(

We got a puppy a month after we lost our dog. In no way does that replace the one we lost, but it's sure nice to have some fur around again.

So sorry for your loss of Ziggy.

Our Ruby (6 year old Yorkie) just had surgery #3. This time her bladder was full of stones. She gets her stitches out today.

Like our two girls - Ruby and Emme (Emerald), I am sure Ziggy lived a charmed life.

We share your pain and grief at the loss of your furry friend. It is never easy and one never forgets them. It has been 2 years since we lost our beloved Muffin and have not been able to bring ourselves to get another cat. So we just love on other peoples cats and dogs and one day we will have another.

The fur kids ask so little and give so much; unconditional love is special, we're sorry for your loss. My guess is Ziggy's memories will bring smiles with the tears. No need to say goodbye; just see you later.

Thanks everyone for you kind thoughts and words. I intend to continue to use the name Ziggy as my username in her honor. We lost our oldest doxie (PJ short for Puddle Jumper) in December and losing another one so soon is hard. We knew it was coming and I started to prepare for it by getting a doxie puppy named Cassie to keep me company. Ziggy got a few weeks to start training Cassie to be a true weiner. Those who have had doxies will understand what that means. lol

Cassie has already attended her first rally and is learning to adjust to being around people and other dogs. But, there will never be another Ziggy... or PJ.

Kristy,,, SOOO sorry to hear about Ziggy. There are (no doubt) many furkids of ours that were there to great her at the Rainbow bridge. Gone from your sight, but never from your heart. You're both in our prayers.

Sorry for your loss too. We lost our Nitro a few years back after 15 wonderful years and he's also at Rainbow Bridge. It's tough losing a best friend.

Kristy, so sorry to hear about Ziggy. At least she got one good last trip in with you guys and a little time to train that little black and tan devil :) I'm sure she told Cassie just how to be a weiner.


Retired Oregon HOC
That little black devil has done a little backsliding in the house training department since the loss of her "sister". They may have been closer than we thought. Lucy definately knows Ziggy is missing from the house but is adjusting.

We are adjusting too, but its going to take awhile.

Thanks everyone.
