View Full Version : Ruff is gone:(

With everything happening here lately. Just having a baby and all. I haven't really haven't had a chance to tell anyone about Ruff. I can't believe he is gone:( I keep thinking he will be in the yard barking at us when we come up in the drive way. And greet us when we come into the yard.

Sometime between Tuesday and Thursday evening about 2 weeks ago Ruff passed away. We knew that he was starting to slow down some. But we thought he was fine. At least that is what the vet said. We think he died of old age. We just took him in for a visit first of November, and all his test came back fine. I just don't understand. The vet said he was probably older then we thought.

Sorry I didn't tell anyone I just haven't really felt like talking about it.

Rest In Peace Ruffy we will miss you dearly:( :(

Oh Tina I am so sorry to hear of Ruff's passing.
I know how hard it is, and I don't blame you for not telling us sooner--you were having a baby!!!

RIP Ruff, and play hard at the Rainbow Bridge.

May he always be in your heart.

So sorry to hear this. It must be hard, I know. I get tears just thinking about losing Duke. I pray he dies at home instead of at the vet. That's one thing you can be thankful for. I'm sure you made him very happy.

So sorry to hear. It may not ease the pain now but try to take comfort knowing that he had a great life, he didn't suffer in the end, and now he is running and playing again. My thoughts are with you!

Oh Tina I'm sooo sorry to hear of Ruff's passing. I just know that he's up there at the RB watching over you and your family and he's saving a place for you when the time comes.:(

RIP Ruff. Please say hi to Toshie and Trixie. I just know that you are all friends by now.

I'm so sorry...

Rest well at the bridge Ruff!

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Losing a pet is never easy, our thoughts are with you.

Was Ruff being cared for by a relative or pet sitter? I noticed you said he passed away sometime between Tuesday and Thursday evening. I know you wish you could have been with him during his last days.

You'll see him again at the Rainbow Bridge.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. This really has been hard on my husband specially since he has known Ruff longer.

Yes, Ruff was being taken care of by some friends. They didn't tell us about Ruff until we came home Thursday. They said he was fine Tuesday. But they didn't say anything about Wednesday. They said they found him dead on Thursday morning. They said they feed the everyone Wednesday but I really don't know. They act like they don't know when he passed away. So that is why I have no idea. I don't think I'll be letting them take care of my animals anymore. I just don't think they done their job right.:(
