Saddest goodbye...

 
This past week we had to say a
final goodnight
to our beautiful, bold and so so loved
friend....
Bo.
 
 
You were our sweetest hello
and our saddest goodbye.





 
sleep well our gentle knight.

How lucky we were
to know
and love you.

Love your words, Linda and know your pain. For us who love a dog, it just goes by too fast. My favorite words from Edna St. Vincent Millay -
Parrots, redwoods and tortoises
Live a longer life than man does.
Man, a longer life than dogs do.
Dogs, a longer life than love does.

So sad, Linda. I know how much you loved that dog!!!

They bring so much comfort and joy into our lives while they are here and such an emptiness and sorrow when they have to leave us. I am sorry for your loss.

Bo was a loving member of the family.

Oh Linda, I'm so sorry to hear this sad news...I will always remember him sitting so regally on your orange sofa.
May he rest in peace.

Dogs..... As long a life as Love does... And perhaps more. Thank you Donna <3

He was so happy to sit with us. He humbly shared all of our couches ...it was our pleasure. Thank you...thank you.

Nicki said...

This is so sad :( I will miss seeing Bo photobomb (or star in, rather) your pictures. He seemed like the greatest companion!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

So loved that it hurts right now... Tincture of time will dull the edges. Thank you...

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

The best... The best. Thank you, Nicki.

I am sorry for your loss. Our animals are such a big part of our lives, and I can tell Bo was a big part of yours. Take care.

i loved you from the moment i saw you on the big orange sofa.
and in the christmas santa hat... and so many other pictures. never enough of you!

i am late here linda. i don't even know if you'll see this note now.
but tears are shining... writing through them.

losing a heartbeat like bo ... well.
i know the pain.
and even time sometimes takes too long to lessen its hole.
keep the memories close. that's what we do. xo♥

So sorry for your loss Linda:(. I have enjoyed your photos of Bo over the years. He always reminded me of my daughters dog - well loved and fond of taking over the entire sofa:)
All the best,
Ry

for the love of a house said...

Linda, and family.... this post absolutely breaks my heart. I am so very sorry for this loss. He was such a joy and a love and I know his presence in your house is palatable. We will miss him with you and I will miss his precious photos on the blog and IG. Sending you love and puppy prayers my friend. So sad... xxojoan

Ivy Lane said...

Sooo sorry..... :(

Shar said...

Wow, so very sorry. I know all too well how that hurts. So glad you shared photos of your "other child" with us. Prayers...

Life's a Beach! said...

So sorry for your loss! They're our kids. We lost the lovely Saby two years ago and I still think of her everyday. Hugs.

Cindy Hattersley said...

Oh my this tugged at my heartstrings. As you know I have a Beau as well. I cannot imagine life without him. My thoughts are with you. When we put our Bridger down after 14 years we didn't get another dog for two years. I don't know why we waited. The puppy stage is the pits but I would do it again...
