Thank you all 106 of you !!!

Hi Friends in Blogville, Today's post is all about you!! You my friends!!
When I lost Bambi 3 weeks ago tomorrow you were all there for me. Saying the words that I needed to hear. You were so sympathetic and kind with those Oh so important words. You all have helped me more than I can express. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH.
I miss her and I talk to her all day long!!! She will always live in my heart forever.
I received 106 comments from you who came to visit and tell me how sorry you were that she had died. It was such a shock to me b/c she had not been sick until she was so sick so fast. It was all over in 2 days!! She died with her head in my lap, me sitting on the floor with her talking to her with my hand on her chest feeling her heart!!! I felt it stop, it just stopped!!! I was in shock!!!!
Anyway people and dogs and cats thank you so much!!!
I don't know what I would do without you all!!!
I would be a very lonely old woman with out you guys!!! Thank you!!!

Love coming you way, Fern


  1. Hi Fern, my dad says that's pretty much what happened with his other kids. The end came fast and unexpectedly for at least one of my uncles. I never met them but we have photos of them and I think that sometimes, I can still feel how happy they were in this house.

  2. You are in my thoughts every day - hope your happy memories are bringing you comfort :o)

  3. I think I mentioned that I still talk to my boy-dogs every single day too, and we talk to the fur-girls as though they knew both boys, when Sissy only knew Mugsy and Gretchen knew neither!

    I'm sure Bambi isn't too far away and is holding you near...


  4. Hi first time here...i saw you on Kim's sidebar on Golden Pines...please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your precious dog....i understand completely...when i lost my Buddy 15 months ago...i wondered if i could ever go on...but the kindness and support from my blog friends got me through...some of them have turned into daily email friends...friends who i wouldn't know what to do without them in my animal loving friends....

    I have Teddy now and i LOVE him DEARLY !!!!!! He is my whole life and brings much happiness and joy to us.......but I miss my Buddy every day...i always will..i have learned to live with that, i guess...Buddy will ALWAYS be in my heart ( now i am crying )...but i so understand and send my support and love.....

    Bambi is in your heart....and will be FOREVER !!!!!!

  6. What a sweet post, Fern. I know what it's like to feel the life drift away as you hold your pet in your arms... when it happened to my girl Scooter years ago, I would dream about her almost every night. It was such an emotional time for me... I never thought it would be so hard!! That was before blogger though, so I didn't have all this support.. I hope and pray you are doing better with each day... I love coming here and seeing Bambi in her favorite chair!!

  7. Hi dear friend, What a wonderful world of blogging isn't it. I know how hard it is when you lose a beloved pet quickly-as I've said we never knew our Sadie was really sick until the end. You were blessed to have her go while in your lap. We will all be here as you continue on dear one.
    Hugs, Noreen

  8. Hi Miss Fern. You sure don't have to thank us cuz that's what furends do for other furends. I think that's one of the Most Wonderfulest things about BlogVille - that everybuddy comes together when one of our residents is hurting. We're sorry you've been hurting but I hope you can tell how very much you are luved!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  9. I'm pretty sure dog bloggers are the best people around! We know how important that support from others is when you face a loss or a trial. We're glad to hear that things are getting better in your little corner of the world!


  10. Not a day goes by that we don't think about you, Fern!

    We love you!

  11. Hi Fern. We have thinking of you lots. We are glad that support from your blogger friends has brought you some comfort. Bambi will be always in your heart forever. Hope you're doing better. We have found you a very special friend.

  12. Dear blogger buddy. That's the best thing about cyberspace, isn't it? Concerned people who help share in our happiness and give us some comfort in our despair.

  13. Oh Miss Fern. We've all been there. It was reading people's posts to Maxmom in South Africa and Digy's dad in France, and the kindness and support offered that brought me to Blogville. Thank YOU for coming to visit us!

    -Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

  14. Sorry. We really should proofread before posting -- we meant Digby.

  15. Dear Fern, One thing I know is you will be glad you cradled her in your arms and offered comfort as she died. I was there for both my parents when they took their last breath. Hard as it was for me, it was also a blessing to have held their hands and send them off to God. You are still in my prayers for peace.


  16. The kindness of others is what keeps us going at times like this....
    You and Bambi were indeed best friends and I know you are lost without her...remember, you have so many friends who care!
    Sending lots of hugs to you,

  17. Awww, I think you are so nice, Fern. Thanks for being my friend. Sending you lotsa woofs & hugs!
