Goodbye, faithful friend

We are sad tonight.
Our 13 year old pup, Duke, passed away.
We had a good life with him and he with us. It's so hard to say goodbye-even to pets.
We will miss you,
faithful friend.

Holly -- I'm sorry. Losing a pet is like losing a family member. So sad. I've been there too.

Oh no! I feel so badly. I'm so sorry. Duke is the only dog I ever "put on a cake". I'm sure Hope is so sad.

Well Rhonda-strangely enough (or not) it doesn't seem to bother her much. What have I done wrong??? Her lack of emotion at times is quite scary. I know she has a heart in there somewhere!

PS-that was an awesome cake!

Thanks for your well wishes everybody. It is so very strange not having him here. Hubby will be looking for that perfect pup soon I'm sure! (The perfect pup being a full blooded German rottie.)

I bought a sign after my beloved Piper dog died that said, "Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog." Ain't that the truth. We will miss Dukey!!!

Thanks, Dawnie. He loved you-you always brought him those chicken treats!
