In loving memory of Cosmo and Belle……

My sweet furbabies….in happier, healthier times.
Belle-1 Cosmo-1

Cosmo and Belle left this world on June 14, 2016

They passed peacefully, together, and in their home with us by their sides.

They will forever be in my heart

It was the most difficult decision I’ve have ever had to make

Both Cosmo and Belle had reached that point in life where living was so very difficult

Our home is painfully quiet

but I know that someday, we will be together again

“There is a cycle of love and death that shapes the lives of those who choose to travel in the company of animals. It is a cycle unlike any other. To those who have never lived through its turnings or walked its rocky path, our willingness to give our hearts with full knowledge that they will be broken seems incomprehensible. Only we know how small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given.”

    Oh! So true. Almost each and every day I think of mine and how they loved me and I them. I know it’s hard to believe but someday you will only think of the good times not the bad.

      Thank you Terrie…..grief is such a process, but the good is starting to outweigh the bad.

    I was so sorry to hear about Belle and Cosmo. It is so hard to lose our beloved pets. Last April when we lost Fred to cancer of the jaw I felt like a piece of me died with him. Still miss him so much. He loved fulltiming and meeting our friends so much. He loved to people watch. Our house is also too quiet. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May the precious memories you have of Belle and Cosmo bring you comfort.

      Thank you Bridget….it is hard to lose them. Fred was such a character….I loved seeing that doggie face come across my Facebook feed. I know he and Cosmo and Bell have become the best of friends….playing and telling stories of us at the Rainbow bridge.

    The hardest part of having a pet is having to say goodbye. They were beautiful dogs. Over the years I had many dogs and would not trade the fun and love each of them brought to my life. I hope the immense sadness and emptiness you are feeling now in time will be replaced with great memories of Belle and Cosmo.

    Hugs to you Debbie! Oh I know all too well how hard it is–trying to wrap my mind around yet another loss myself. You are brave and compassionate and your babies were so very lucky to have you as their person. Thinking of you with heartfelt sympathy!
