Good-Bye Mate

Goodbye Truman, we will miss you so very much.


  1. Such a sad news....I'm so sorry for you...

  2. Oh what a beautiful dog......I am so very sorry Simone :( xo

  3. OMG I'm so sorry for your dog, what a cute he was.

  4. Truman looks completely adorable but from your sad words I can only assume he has passed away. I'm so sorry. Take care x

  5. Hugs to you. I know it is very hard to lose a friend and family member. There is no love like a dogs. My old boy is very old now. I'm sure Truman had a very happy life and was well-loved. He looks like a lovely kind dog. xx

  6. I'm so sorry you've lost your Truman - I'm thinking of you. Lee at Glimpse of Style posted this lovely poem on her blog when she lost her Bilko a few months ago.

    We have a secret, you and I
    that no-one else shall know,
    for who but I can see you lie
    each night in fire glow?

    And who but I can reach my hand
    before we go to bed
    and feel the living warmth of you
    and touch your silken head?

    And only I walk woodland paths
    and see ahead of me,
    your small form racing with the wind
    so young again, and free.

    And only I can see you swim
    In every brook I pass
    and when I call, no-one but I
    can see the bending grass.


  7. Oh Simone... how you'll miss that dear, precious, face. What a gorgeous boy Truman was. His spirit is surely beautiful too & will walk beside you always & forever.

  8. Oh no! You have my deepest sympathies, I know that beloved pets really are part of the family. X

  9. Oh... that is too sad. I'm sure he'll be missed. Julie

  10. aww what a cutie. Its always sad to say goodbye but memories will last forever

  11. oooh Simone, I am so sorry for your loss Trueman looks such a gorgeous doggy, my Bellatrix is crossed with a spaniel. My heart goes out to you, they are so part of the family, I hope your pain will be filled with all the love & happy memories Truman gave you. Elaine :) x

  12. Oh, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I'm sure he's brought you lots of joy, and in the not so distant future, memories of him will also be a joy. I know emotions must be raw now, but soon thinking of him will bring you comfort.

  13. Simone, I am somewhat new to your page... Is Truman ill? If so, I am so very sorry... I've had to deal w/this issue as well...

  14. Aw, it's so hard to say good bye! God bless you. ♥

  15. Oh no!!! So sad!!! It´s always so horrible to loose an animal - a few years ago I´ve lost 2 dogs and 1 cat in 2 years...that was such a gruel time...I totaly feel with you! Send you a big hug! Geisslein

  16. Sorry for your loss. It must be very hard. I have lost my dear Sheeba 5 years ago and couldnt have the courage to adopt another one since then..

  17. Such a beautiful dog. I hope he is up in doggie heaven chewing on a good bone.

  18. Oh, I am so sorry to read this! From another "dog lover" my thoughts are with you all! Take care, Caroline

  19. sorry! what a sweet looking dog.

  20. Oh, Simone. Sending you good thoughts. Lisa.

  21. Oh no. I'm so sorry Simone. You must be heart broken. My sincerest and deepest apologies. Dogs have a way of finding their way in to our hearts where they set up camp. Before we know it- we love them more than we ever meant to. *hugs*

    Hi! I just discovered you site and must
    comment about your Truman. I take it that
    your beloved Truman must have passed away.
    I have had and loved many pets and know
    what you must be going through. I hope
    all the wonderful memories you have of
    Truman will comfort you.

  23. What a handsome dog! I'm so sorry he's gone.

  24. Oh dear! Poor pup! Hope you guys are okay, tis so hard when they go....

  25. so sweet...pets are such a blessing & a vital part of family life. ((hugs))

  26. Oh, what happened to Truman? It's so heart wrenching to lose a pet. I'm so sorry.


  27. OOH, I am so, so sorry! My heart breaks for you! I'm dreading the day when we loose ours.

  28. I'm so sorry for your loss. It's like losing a best friend. They provide us with so many wonderful memories. **HUGS**

  29. Oh Simone,

    Makes me so sad! Sorry you lost your pal, I know the pain of losing a belvoed pet. My heart goes out to you.


  30. Wow, thanks so much everyone for your kind words. A big thanks to Leigh for sharing that poem. It really made us feel better. Truman had to be put to sleep yesterday here at our home. He had been sick for some time. He died in his favourite armchair. Thanks again so much. Simone xxx

  31. My thoughts are with you. It is so hard to lose a sweet, beloved pet. I too have lost the little love of my life, Scooter.

  32. Oh darling Truman. You were so so loved by your owners and that makes all the difference. RIP little mate. A-M xx

  33. Ohh my sorry for your loss.
    You and your family are in my thoughts.
    Take Care xOxO, Nerina :)

  34. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Truman looks like he was a great dog.

  35. Oh, I'm so sorry. My prayers are with you.

  36. So sorry to hear about Truman - my thoughts are with you guys. xxx

  37. I lost my beautiful Ginger in May so know the depth of your loss. My thought and prayers go out to you. Such a sad time but such a great life dear Truman lived.

  38. My heart goes out to you...we lost our Golden some 5 years ago and the pain is still there, it just lessens a bit with time...God bless!~Lara

  39. If it be I grow frail and weak,
    And pain should wake me from my sleep
    Then you must do what must be done
    for this battle must be won.

    You will be sad, I understand
    Don't let your grief then stay your hand
    For this day, more than all the rest
    Your love and friendship, stand the test.

    We've had so many happy years
    What is to come will hold no fears,
    You'd not want me to suffer so,
    When the time come, please let me go.

    I know in time you too will see
    It is a kindness you do to me,
    Although my tail, it's last has waved,
    From pain and suffered, I've been saved.

    Do not grieve that it should be you,
    Who has to decide this thing to do,
    We've been so close, we too, these years,
    Don't let your heart hold any tears.
    Hope you feel a little brighter soon Simone.

  40. A very beautiful tribute to a very handsome dog indeed. All the poems made me teary..its such a sad time..warm wishes ...J
