It is at times like these when I think of the ending of Mr. Michael Joseph's book, "Charles -- The Story of a Friendship"

I shall walk in the sun alone
Whose golden light you loved:
I shall sleep alone
And, stirring, touch an empty place:
I shall write uninterrupted
(Would that your gentle paw
Could stay my moving pen just once again!)

I shall see beauty
But none to match your living grace:
I shall hear music
But not so sweet as the droning song
With which you loved me.

I shall fill my days
But I shall not, cannot forget;
Sleep soft, dear friend,
For while I live you shall not die.

My deepest sympathies to you and your family on the passing of your beloved companion, Pooky. May peace find your heart again soon.

Oh Pawz, I am so very, very sorry to hear this! My thoughts are with you. Pooky will be waiting for you over the bridge, and you will see her again someday.

I know your heart must ache. You have had Pooky in your family for a long time. You will never forget her, so part of her will always be with you. I wish our pets could live as long as we do, but that is not the plan. You must have had a great relationship with her. You will grieve now, but the pain will lessen, and those happy memories will be there until you see her again. God bless.

Pawz - my heart is going out to you on your loss of little Pooky. She knew that her time was here and I am thankful that her death was peaceful and her choice. I am thinking of you and hope that you are dealing Ok with this.
I am truly sorry for you and you family.

A couple of years ago I also lost my 18 year old cat to renal failure. I know how much it hurts to loose a loved companion. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Feel good that she allowed you 18 years of her life and that she is waiting for you to meet up with her again. My prayers to you.

I am teribly sorry to hear of the loss of Pooky. It is so sad when you lose an animal. In some ways it is harder losing an animal than it is a human. I remember one horrible wet and woolly night, there was a knock at the door with an older man standing on my porch saying he had hit a cat crossing the road and wondered who it belong to, my heart just sank, I just knew it was my beautiful Delilah. There she was laying on the footpath in the cold rain dead. I have never felt so sick to the stomach since. I really feel for you.

You'll have great fun with that pup, Pawz! I'm glad you were able to get a pet.
