    Today I had to say goodbye to my dog, Sadie. She has been a great camping and hiking partner for 16 years. She watched over our campsites and notified if anyone or thing crossed the campsite boundary. She love the strolls through the campground and the run through the fields. Last month she came with me on one last farewell camping trip which was actually really hard for her, but to see the smile on her face also made it so right. Till we meet again across rainbow bridge

    My condolences on the loss of your buddy. Losing a faithful companion really hurts. I hope she is chasing rabbits up in doggy heaven, waiting for you.

    Sorry to see that you will miss your companion.
    Always unpleasant when you have to say goodbye. I am sure she had a remarkable life as you are talking about her here.
    Hope you can see yourself to a new friend in the future to take the edge of the hurt, and remind yourself of the good times.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. You had a lot of good years, but that just makes the absence all the harder.

    Oh, no! I'm so sorry. My animals are my life, and it's always devastating when I have to say goodbye to them. What gets me through it is remembering, usually through tears and laughter, their funny little faces and all the wonderful moments we had together.

    I know you're holding your other puppy close for comfort.

    Sorry for your loss it is hard when you loose a furry family member. I often wonder when that special one comes along did we pick them or did they pick us?

    Sorry for your loss. Our pets are our children and make some of the best camping buddies around. They will be missed when the time comes but will always be there with us when camping.
