My Mickey passed away too on Nov. 28, 2007. It's still painful. *HUG*
They will be missed but never forgotten. I leave you with a quote and a poem that I found.

"Ask of the beasts and they will teach you the beauty of this earth."
-St. Francis of Assisi

This poem was written for a little dog named Bean and his Mom wanted to share it with us all. Thank you.

Bean by Christina Rae Almeida

I said “good bye, I love you”,
When I saw that look in your eyes
It was the type of look you give someone
When you know these are your last goodbyes.

You were just a dog some might say
But I know they’re all wrong
You were more than a dog
You were my best friend, and
Now dear friend it is going to be long,
Before I can hold you in my arms once again.

It is hard to put in words how you made me feel
But when I heard your foot steps charging to me,
There is nothing in the world that could’ve made me more happy

You were so small, yet
You had more energy than any dog I had ever met
You were so strong.. and Ill never forget,
All the fun times we shared together

You were with me for so short of a time
But you taught me so much
I never knew I could love anyone the way I loved you
All I had to do was touch
Your soft fur and I knew everything would be ok

I don’t know what I will do without you
I feel like there’s a huge hole in me
Once so filled with joy and glee
Now so empty and cold,
I'm sure your spirit is still with me and I hope you know
I will have and better dog and
Their will always be a place in my heart for you..

Wherever you are, I hope you are happy
And have a nice fuzzy bed to sleep in
You can be free now.. no more play pin
Wait for me bean.. Barbra Jean..
I will see you again..
When my time comes I will look forward to seeing you
And we can be together once more
I will never forget you..
You are forever a part of me
As I am a part of you
Don’t worry though.. I’m not going to be blue
All I’ll have to do is whisper your name to myself
And look for ward to the day.. when I will once again get to hold you

Wow, my dog Mickey, a pomeranian passed away the same day, Nov. 28th. I did celebrate his 13th birthday in July. A voice inside of me kept saying you better do this now or you'll never get that chance. So glad I listened to that voice. I almost canceled too cuz I was planning on a big party, but last minute I just decided to purchase the cake. With the help of Dogster's newsletter, I bought the cake from KoolDogsKafe.com.

It's still painful. I know. 8 cherished memorable years.

Mickey died on the same day. It's still painful. Why can't they live as long as we do? Then when we go, they will go at the same time? I had to explain death to my cousin's kids. They are still young. Maybe they can watch Lion King again or maybe that other movie Dogs go to Heaven? I don't think they understood it when they were toddlers. They are now 6 and 7 years of age and asking lots of questions. How do you explain "why is Mickey in doggie heaven?"

Saying Goodbye: Memorials & Support > Missing my lil\' Mickey

Mickey passed away 11-28-2007 around 10:10am. He had a swollen heart with respiratory problems. I had him checked out before going to Boston for Thanksgiving as he was showing signs of loss appetite, unable to lie down or sleep. Soon after the vet appointment he was fine. That was Nov. 17th. I guess I got him another week and a half and luckily in Boston where I got to make final arrangements for him. So glad the MSPCA, Angell Memorial and Angel View Pet Cemetery had private cremation services available. I would not hear of cremating him with other dogs and paying a huge amount for it. He's only 5lbs and when last weighed he dropped to 4.6lbs. (A friend had his rottie cremated with other dogs for $500! but that's in NY - how absurd!) We wish that we could have done more: get him to the hospital sooner, get him his new medication administered sooner. His last moments with me were pain staking...he was unable to breath all night and he would not lie down. He was on my bed trying to keep himself sitting up as his front paws kept sliding forward. My mom even tried to put the comforter in front of him to keep him from sliding. When I was ready to take him to the ER, I last checked on him but he was lying down. I thought he died then, but I checked on him and his rib cage was moving and I had to put my ear to his body to hear his faint heart beat. Why didn't I know that was his last breath? If I had known, I would not have taken so long in the bathroom. I was only gone for like 10 min and then my mom was shouting "I think Mickey's dead!" and I ran out pushing her aside screaming "NO HE'S NOT! I just checked on him!" There was no movement. I tell ya, I lost it.

It hasn't been easy for me, especially when I'm ready to turn in for bed. I feel there's a void there. I got use to bringing him up to bed with me to calm his coughing and wheezing. Now there's emptiness. I can still smell his scent on his toy which I sniff before crying myself to sleep.

Coming back to NY I see his belongings and it makes it more difficult.

Mickey was definitely a gift from God. He was one of my prayers answered. I asked God for him when I was a child. For Thanksgiving, I said thanks for "blessings in disguise". We meet people for a reason as they are blessings in disguise. If I never met my bf then, I would never have gotten my lil'Mickey. He was rescued as he was turning 5 and so I've had him for 8 years. Those were the best 8 years I'll always cherish. He was always loving and though he would be upset if mommy was to give him his medicine hidden in a special treat, he would soon forget it and be happy, obedient and loyal. He truely was my best friend. A friend who knows only to love back. His last kiss to me has been embedded in my memory. I only wish I didn't have to wash my face. That last kiss was a soft and gentle kiss telling me that he will always love me. I guess when I accidentally picked him up, I brought him way up close to my face and he surprised me quickly with a kiss on my cheek. I will never forget that moment.cloud 9

We will always miss you Mickey. My late sister Karen is taking care of you now in heaven. RIP.cry
