July 17th 2009 will be a day I will always remember. It was my daughters 26th birthday. We had a great celebration planned. Family,friends and great food were the order of the evening. It was our 1st party out by the recently built pool. A perfect evening.
Hardy had just turned 1. He was 5 lbs but like most Yorkies he did not know that. He and his "cousin" Oliver were playing in the backyard. The 6 of us were watching them very closely, or so we thought. In just a matter of seconds the old hound next door had grabbed Hardy and dragged him literally under the fence. We heard his screams. My son-in-law jumped the brick fence and got him from the other dog.
We rushed to the emergency clinic but Hardy died in my arms. He was literally crushed. I could feel his stomach and chest fillling with blood on the way to the clinic.
I had him cremated. I now have an ornate little box with his remains in it,along with a lock of his hair. When its my turn to go, that box is going with me.
We planted a small Maple tree in his honor in the back yard. Call it the Hardy Tree.
Not a day goes by that I dont miss him. Not a day goes by I dont relive that horrible evening.
We now have Isabella & Masten. Wonderful Yorkies but there will always be a hole in my heart left by Hardy.

My heart broke reading about your precious little boy. I understand why there is a hole in your heart, but there will also be that soft spot filled with infinite, everlasting love for Hardy. Please stay on Yorkie Talk. It is such a wonderful community with members who understand how much you love your little angel. There are so many people who really care. I'm so sorry about Hardy. I hope the memories of moments you shared with Hardy eventually ease the pain you are feeling and that Isabella and Masten bring you much joy.

I'm so sorry for your loss. As time moves on it definitely gets easier to deal with the pain of it. I lost my first Yorkie just over 5 years ago. I still think of him. he was only 5 months old and somehow someway ate rat poison. I only had him 2 months and took him everywhere with me. He was only 3lbs. My little Stuart. I came home one day to find him covered in his own urine, feces and saliva. I rushed him in to the vet but it was too late. He died 20 mins later. I was devastated. I went to every person's house I knew and asked them about rat poison, but never confirmed where he could have eaten it. I only can guess that my neighbor was using it around his garden which was up against the chain link fence that ran b/t our yards and Stuart may have gotten it from our own yard through no fault of our own.
I have Dexter and Fletcher now and I adore everything about them... I love them to pieces and they are my babies. I STILL think about and miss my baby Stuart. I wish I he had a longer life with me.
My heart and prayers go out to you. I know how painful it is. (((HUGS)))

I am so sorry for your loss. I too first came to this YT site when I lost my Harley Joe. I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me to have the love and prayers from so many understanding people come your way. I still return to my old post of the loss when I miss my baby. I know learn so much from this site and hopefully it will help me be a better mommy - certainly more informed - to my newest baby and keep him happy and healthy. Sometimes just hearing others' experiences has given me so much more understanding. My prayers are with you and your family.
