    My Tasha is gone

    Can't type. Can't see to type. But once upon a time many loved her here. She's gone, as of an hour or so ago. I'll never be the same.

    I am so sorry to hear about your Tasha. I remember her. We lost our Ginger and Dan was particularly distraught. We know how you feel and are feeling for you. No... it never really ever is the same, but we go on. She will always be in your heart.

    Oh, K9soul. My heart just dropped right to the floor when I saw this. I am so, so sorry. Many ((((HUGS)))). I'm sure Phred and Tommy were right there to greet her. You have taken such amazing care of Tasha. I am so very sorry.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!

    Just wanted to add this. I made a couple days ago, when I knew I was going to have to say goodbye.



    Thank you...

    My heart dropped when I saw the title of this thread. Now I just finished watching your lovely tribute vid, and I am in tears.

    Sure, I do remember you and your Tasha. I am so very sorry for your loss. She was special, and lives on, in your memories, in your heart.

    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Awww, rest in peace, pretty girl! You were well-loved by many, but most especially your mom. Play hard at the Rainbow Bridge, and go see my Dad, I am sure he still has some cookies in his "magic pocket," just ask all the neighborhood dogs.

    Oh I am so sorry to hear about Tasha. I was in tears just reading your first post. I can't watch the video right now, but I will make sure to have tissue ready.

    RIP sweet Tasha

    I don't know how to get through this. She's not here today. The first morning in 15+ years, she's not here to wake up to, to feed, to love on.

    I don't know how to get through it. I just want her back.

    I paid extra for a mobile vet to come and give her peace at home. I set up the old bed I got for her and Tommy years ago, all washed up. And her favorite snuggle blanket and old snuggle pillow (retired from my bed a few months ago).



    They gave her a sedative first, to relax her. She was a little nervous about strange people in our home carrying bags.

    Then she and I laid on her bed together. I held her and petted her. Just held her and talked to her for a long time. I told her she wouldn't have the pain of winter arthritis again. That she wouldn't be falling down anymore. That she wouldn't get panicky when I had to leave her for awhile. She wouldn't have to have her flare of fall allergies and go get a shot. She wouldn't have to worry about her urinary and sometimes fecal incontinence anymore. She would be at peace and pain-free and be the dog she was 99% of her life. I've never had a bond like I did with my girl. I feel like the grief will last forever.

    k9soul, I know you are hurting and feeling so bad. I've just read all the comments here and watched the Loving Tribute you did for Tasha. I am crying because I can see how much you loved your Tasha. Maybe if you can keep reminding yourself that she will not be in any more pain or discomfort, just maybe that will help you get through this terrible time. I know that's what I do when I have to let a furbaby go. It was so loving of you to have a vet come to the house, and for you to hold her so she wouldn't be afraid--such a loving thing to do for her; you loved her enough to let her go. I am so sorry for your loss. ((Hugs))... Kay

    Jess, I'm so very sorry for your loss of Tasha, she was a beautiful and sweet girl. It's so hard to say goodbye, but the right thing to do... under the circumstances. She is free of pain and you will have the memories of your time together. I hope it will be a comfort to you that she had a good long and happy life.

    Rest in peace, dear Tasha - you will never be forgotten.


    ((((hugs))))

    I appreciated your loving tribute. If others click on K9soul recent started threads, you'll find an almost five minute loving video. Thank you.
