I think today was the worst day of my life. This morning I said goodbye to one of my best friends. 

My beautiful, sweet little Buffy passed away today.

I can't talk much about it because I am literally shattered and heartbroken. I will miss her so, so much and truly feel like a piece of me is missing. I loved that dog so much and I would've done anything for her. She was a part of me and we really did have a strong connection. Whilst I am glad she is no longer suffering, I know I will struggle daily without her. Leaving her for 6 weeks whilst we went away was incredibly painful for me and I felt such relief to come home and be with her. I feel that pain again though and know that this time, there will be no relief. She is gone. 

Buffy, know that I loved you incredibly and if there was anything I could've done, I would've. You were the best dog and I will always be grateful for the happiness you brought me. I love you so much Buff. 


  1. Oh, no! I'm so sorry to hear that! I know I'm a new reader, but I remember how awful it is to lose a pet, and my thoughts are with you!

  2. Oh, I'm SO SO sorry for you. I know nothing anyone can say can even come close to helping, but my heart is breaking for you. Just try to remember the good times and how lucky you were to have each other. Even though I'm not particularly religious, I liked this quote and think it applies to pups as well: 'Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other we still are...why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near just around the corner. All is well.' -- H.S. Holland (1918)

    Lots of love xx

  3. oh this is so so sad and so sorry for you! my doggies are my children so i can't even imagine. buffy was a lucky girl to have such a wonderful and loving mom!

  4. This made me cry. I'm so, so sorry for your loss :( xxxx

  5. That's so sad! I'm really sorry for your loss Jasmine!!

  6. :( I'm so sorry!
    I have a dog (and cat) I had to leave with my parents three years ago when we moved overseas and I miss them both so much. I live in fear that either of them will pass away in their care before we move home this year. My heart goes out to you!

  7. *giant hug* I'm sorry to read this. I know it's painful. I've been there a few times. When Husband and I lost our first-adopted, my sister sent me a note that said this:

    "I read a beautiful article recently. It was all about taking care of our pets in their senior years. We let pets into our lives knowing that we will, inevitably, have to experience their passing. Yet, we do it anyways because we realize and appreciate all of the good things they bring to us."

    Buffy brought a lot of good to your life. Like you said, she is no longer suffering. Instead, she's keeping a seat warm for you up in the sky. :)

  8. UGH. I can not even imagine. My babies are my life!! I am so sorry for your loss, sweety.

  9. Oh no what awfully sad news, it's heartbreaking losing a much loved pet :( Hope you're ok xx

  10. Sorry for your loss. I've said goodbye to a few furry loved ones in my's heartbreaking, each time. What helps a little is reading the Rainbow Bridge (just do a search for Rainbow Bridge, if you haven't heard of it).


Thank you for sharing your thoughts, I love reading them!
