♥Farewell Mr Darcy - you were loved, you gave love, you will be missed♥



How long is long enough? How short is too short? Our world has lost a gentle soul in a giant body, Mr Darcy. This young dog - after a valiant battle with wobbler's syndrome - left us to run free in heaven. Please let Mr Darcy's family know that even though he was here for such a short time, his life had great value.

Our presence here on earth is measured in time but our impact here on earth is measured in the heart. Mr Darcy, you touched many hearts. Your impact was immense.

We cried and cried watching Mr. Darcy's movie, but it was time for him to cross over the bridge. Us big guys are so sensitive that we don't last very long and Master says that after I cross over the bridge he will never get another giant doggie because it is just too painful to have them for a short time. Well, we'll see about that.

Slobbers,

when we clicked your comments button it opened some strange pop ups... we hate how these animals go through such horrible diseases and pain. We hate it. It makes mom real mad and sad.

Mimi - what a beautiful tribute you made to Mr. Darcy. Through leaky eyes, I'm stunned to see such a large life he lived in such a short time. What a wonderful family he had too. Thank you for creating such a beautiful post.

I felt so bad when I went over to Mr. Darcy's blog to find he had passed. Such a beautiful, gentle, and sweet soul. So unfair that he was taken so young from his loving family.

We're going over now to leave our condolences..

Deborah said...

Hi again, I left you an answer on my blog, but incase you don't see, I totally understand your concerns, I didn't want to take the kitten back, but I had no choice, the vet appointment is Saturday for the shots and the Vet asked me not to keep the kitten in my house with all my pets without any shots and making sure he is healthy. Also, this kitten is not my Mother's, it is the person who lives on the farm, my Mother has asked her several times to get her fixed, and just this week, my Mother said she would do it, with the neighbors permission. This is not fair to the mother cat or the kittens, so I do agree with you.
Thank you for your concerns.
