R.I.P. "" Wee Sammie"" 27.03.09
Hi all....We had to say Goodbye to our wee little man 2 weeks ago now. He was nearly 15 years old..and had been very poorly since last year..We could not see him suffer any longer..it was just too painful to watch him..
It is the 4th time now we have had to face this awful decision. I cried buckets in the Vets...Sounds awful doesn't it..but I could hardly bear to let him go....What a world it is when our best pals just have to be parted from us.
The house is real empty now...as I have always had a yorkie about the place.
This may sound awful..but I am already thinking about having another pup.
Some of you may find this awful and too soon..but for me its the only way I'll cope...And I'll never forget him...He was 3lb in weight and my arm candy.
What more can I say.
Goodnight my "Wee Sammie" up there in Caravanning Heaven with his pals..xx

I'm so sorry for your loss. We recently said goodbye to our third, and as you know too well, it doesn't get any easier. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I do not think it is wrong to be thinking about another puppy so soon. The house does feel incredibly empty after the loss of a pet. What makes it so bearable for us is our other three furkids.
Whatever you decide, rest in the knowledge that your Wee Sammie is running free and playing without pain. You're a good doggie parent.

I'm sorry. We lost our Newman one year ago this past August. He was 10 yrs. old and we had to put him down after losing a battle to cancer. Like you I cried buckets of tears. My husband a big NYC police officer and our two sons were there and we all cried. Then this past August we had to say good bye to our 17 month old Yorkie to a brain abnormalty. We said no more but God had a different plan and this past September brought us our Beans. My thoughts are with you and you're not a terrible person for wanting another so soon. Everyone copes differently and I personally feel that adding a new does help to heal you. I know Beans really helped us all.

I am so sorry for your loss! RIP Little One!!
A new puppy never replaces our lost babies, but they do replace the hole in our hearts!

I'm so sorry to hear about your baby! I know exactly what you're going through. My hubs though we should wait 4-6 months before getting a new puppy when we lost our Niko, but the house was just too empty, there was no one on my knee, in my bed, following me from room to room or waiting by the front door when I came home. I just couldn't stand it!
Our new puppies (I got two boys) didn't replace Niko, but they definitely brightened up our house again. I think it's never too early to welcome a baby to love!

So sorry about Wee Sammie. I really know how you feel. I lost a little girl recently. I got another girl very quickly and I was worried people would judge. Everyone was very supportive. I think it is a great idea. It won't replace Sammie, but it may help ease your pain.

You should never feel bad about wanting to share you love with another puppy or animal. I think that it is one of the worst things to go thru, saying goodbye to a pet. I cried my eyes out when we lost our 2 cats a year apart of each other. My husband told me that my 2nd cat stayed to make sure that we had another special baby in our lives to watch over before she said goodbye. I wish you all the best in finding that new bundle of joy. Hugs to you. RIP Wee Sammie.

I'm so sorry about your Sammy!!!
But I firmly believe that a new baby will help to ease the pain of your loss!!! My daughter lost her Lily to a tragic accident...and grieved so hard...that we ended up purchasing another baby for her a week afterwards....although the new baby does NOT replace her Lily....she says it was the best thing for her grieving...Giving love to another furbaby has helped with her pain!!! You should definately get another baby ...as soon as you can!!!! It will not erase your pain..but it will certainly help you!!!
Again...I'm sorry for your loss!!! You're in my thoughts!

I am so very sorry for your loss.
I too lost my little Kayla last July. She was 3 months short of 14. I also cried my eyes out and miss her terribly. Whose to say, this length or that length of time is right to wait.
We do all handle the loss of our furbabies differently. For me each time I lost one, I had to wait months before I entertained the idea of getting another. That's just me. I knew that I would get another, it just takes me a while to get to that point. There is nothing wrong with wanting another baby as you do. Bless you for wanting to give another baby a loving home.
I will keep you in my prayers and ask God to comfort you in your time of sorrow.
