Saturday night we said good-bye to our sweet boy Rocket.  He was a good friend and a loyal companion, a special fellow, charming everyone who crossed his path. We were lucky to have him.

We are especially sad, as this loss falls on the heels of losing Binnie, our little rabbit, the week before.  We're a sad bunch around here right now. 
Thanks for all your kind thoughts and emails since I wrote about Rocket's illness last week.   I appreciate your kindnesses so much. xo

Hi Pam - From my own personal experience I know that there is precious little that anyone can say to ease the sadness. But try to just think about the happiness that you brought to their lives. Because of you they knew kindness,love and safety. So many pass thru this world and never know what it is to be loved. Because of you they were blessed and because of them you were blessed and you will always have that. Hugs, XX00

You know I'm a crier. I'm so sorry about Rocket and Binney. You know he is heaven chasing my Camille and Samantha. Or is Samantha chasing Rocket? She was Siamese and that's how she rolled.

I'm so sorry! I'm really feeling for you right now - as we have gone through many a loss of a pet over the years and never gets easier. Each and every one is precious.

Aww. I'm so sorry. Sending you a virtual hug. Years ago we had two Siberian Huskies -- Kody and Bandit. They were litter mates. We lost bandit to a tumor and then Kody's health immediately deteriorated and we lost her to a kidney ailment about a month or two later. Losing a precious animal companion is tough in the first place but even harder when it happens one after the other.
