I am sorry I have not been around this last week but my little Po was put to sleep last Thursday.
We had been together for over 17 years, my heart is in pieces at the moment
I lost my Broadband connection the day Po left me, today Po came home, his ashes are in a beautiful wooden casket, my new router was delivered so I could get back on line to let you know.
The picture below is one of the last ones that I took of Polo
Polo Mr Handsome
I don't know how I am manage to write this as I am in tears, as I have been for the last week,  I just want to be with my Po.  
RIP my little darling I will love you for eternity.
10-06-1995 - 25-10-2012
Thank you all for your comments on my posts, once I feel a little better I will be visiting you all.

Lorraine, I'm weeping with you after reading your post. I know how you feel as I felt like you 5 years ago now. Try and think of the beautiful memories left to you by Po. Nothing can take them away. Please take care of yourself too, as grief can be so bad. All my Love Rita xxx

Oh Lorraine I am so sorry to hear this :-( Polo has been part of your family for the last 17 years so understandably it is going to take you some time to get used to him not being there.

Sending you love & hugs

Hi Lorraine
OMG What a tragedy! I can imagine how you feel and writing this post to share with us was a nightmare! Your darling little Po is always going to be in your heart and never going to leave that place no matter what! Time is in most cases a great healer but it can never replace what we lost. I hope your lovely memories of your sweetheart will get you through the worst days and knowing he is in a good place keeping an eye on you will comfort you a bit. Sending you my deepest sympathy and hugs.

brenda said...

Oh Lorraine, I am so, so sorry.

It's only a month since I lost my Buffy so I know totally how you feel, they leave a huge empty void. I too have her little box of ashes, sadly too many similar little boxes.

As I write the tears are straming, there are few words I can say other than sending you big hugs and love.

The hurt does ease with time and you must try and focus on the good times you had for seventeen wonderful years.

dottielottie said...

Hi Lorraine,I popped onto your blog from the Bearly Mine Challenge blog to see if you posted what you used for the snowflake on your lovely card.Of course I saw your most recent post about losing your dear little dog Po, and I just wanted to say how sorry I am that you are feeling so bereft at losing your little companion, he looks a sweet little chap. I do know how you are feeling and that nothing can ease how much you are hurting just now.
Sometimes it just helps to know people care.

Julie said...

Lorraine: I am so sorry to hear of your loss. A pet is part of the family, and losing a family member is unimaginable pain. I pray that the pain will subside and you will be left with precious memories of your time together.

Oh! Lorraine, I am so sorry, it is so hard to loose one of our fur babies, they become part of our family, and I sympathise greatly...
Take care...


Linda said...

Oh I am sending you a big hug! I know how you feel. I lost Max last Spring as you know. Po was so lucky to have had you as a Mum and I am sure he is happy and running around like a puppy again. Take your time and feel your sadness but Po wouldn't want you to be sad for long.

Linnie said...

Lorraine i am so sorry....i do know the grief you are feeling as i have lost my doggie family after 16 years together.....try and be strong and you will feel better with time...you are in my thoughts

Laine Kammeraad said...

Oh Lorraine - I am so incredibly sorry to hear of your loss of your precious Polo. Our furry companions sure do dig their way deep into our hearts don't they? I know there aren't any words that will help mend your broken heart. I pray you will find some comfort in your memories of him as your healing process begins. He will always be in your heart and I wish there was more I could say to help ease your pain. My little furry Hercules is almost 13 years and his health declines more each day. I know I will be lost without him one day too and I just cry when I think about it. Take care of you Lorraine - and please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. With hugs, Laine

Marjorie said...

Oh dear Lorraine~~My heartfelt sympathies!! It is terrible when we lose a loved family member like Polo. About a year ago we put our 16 yr old dog to sleep and had him cremated and gave him a lovely home under the pine tree in the backyard and I do think of him daily when I look out my living room window :) Sending biggg hugz
