How to say Thankyou

Where and how do we begin to say thank you to everyone for your lovely messages and kind words of support on the loss of our precious girl Dorcus. So simply from the bottom of our hearts ..thank you.

There is no way we can express the pain we are feeling right now. We miss her so dreadfully and the question we keep asking is " why, why, why"? Dorcus was too young, it should not have been her time to leave us. We loved her more than we can say.

We wanted to share some of our favourite precious Dorcus moments
Her first bath in the kitchen sink aged 12 weeks
Her first snow 29.12.06
Her first walk with Ellie in the snow Dec 2006

Growing up. Aged 10 months

Think we'll have to leave it here for now...........

Thank you so much everyone for caring and being there for us.

We know that Dorcus is running happily in the rainbow bridge and maybe she has already met our Laura and Hana :)
Those were some beautiful memories. Keep them close to you.

This is one time you will all be so happy that your Mom likes to take lots of photos - so many memories of the good times with Dorcus. We understand how hard it is, we still grieve for our Dakota, but Inky and Molly are right, she is there with you in spirit and will always be in your hearts.

How wonderful to see little miss Dorcus in all her glory. What a pretty gal. Sending lots of hugs and smoochies.

We do share your pain. Hard as it always to lose a friend, it seems particularly so when the friend is young and should still have many years of life ahead. In the last two years, we lost one "chan" at 18 months and another at 15 months, and we miss both boys so much.

The photos of Dorcus are just lovely.

Woofs, Purrs and Hugs,

HoundDogMom said...

She was a beautiful girl and we see she was a queen. And they always wonder why we have the camera out taking pictures of them. We have to have our memories to help us get through these hard times. We can relate as we still feel the pain from having our Tabby cross to the Bridge this year as well. {{HUGS}}. Drools, The HoundDogs

Thank you for opening your heart and letting us in to put our paws around you as your heart is hurting.
Thank you for taking the time to share all the photos with us.
All of Dorcus,,, every moment, every photo, every memory- we will help you cherish.

Neeko said...

Neeko's Mom here!

Again, so very sorry on the loss of your sweet precious Dorcus.
We do not understand why God does things the way He does sometimes.

Our precious Neeko came to us after loosing our dear Yorkie, Sparky to cancer. The pain of loosing our Angel is still so heavy that I cannot talk about it... We lost Sparky in March of this year and adopted Neeko in April.
Indeed their precious lives are so very short and we do everything in our powers to show them how much they are loved.

Before adopting Neeko, I had no idea about this wonderful world of blogville where wonderful parents care so much about each other especially in times like this.

So please know, that we have you in our thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time,

Amalia :-(

How Sam Sees It said...

I'm just catching upon my blogs, I"m sorry to hear about your loss.


Sherry said...

Thank you for posting the individual photos. Dorcas had an unusual sweetness in her face--for an Airedale .

Someone else's loss brings back all our own griefs and we feel such empathy because we know what you are going through.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I will sit her,,while your heart heals. You will not even know I am here,, but I will be close in case you need an extra wag of a tail.

Sunshade said...

I am so sorry about Dorcus, she was a GORGEOUS, well loved girl. Yes 5 years is not enough, it is not fair, but she had the bestest family in the world with the bestest Aire-sibilings. I don't think the fun and games stopped for a moment in the 5 years she's been part of the Thuglets.

Your post hit a little close to home.... we are very sad for your loss.. please take care..


Elaine, Sunshade & Jaffa
