I have two pet dogs and today my beloved one Regina(German shepherd) passed away
due to a cardiac arrest and she was 12 years old.

Unfortunately,the day also happens to be the birthday of my younger pet Phoebe
(Pomeranian).



I need some moral support and some prayers for her to rest in peace.

Thank you.

Being a long time pet owner of many i feel what you feel. My deepest sympathy to you. Loosing a friend hurts but the memories will never fade.

Here my friend, a poem written by me several months ago, I hope it helps in easing such an aching heart.


A subject we all know too dear,
Future pain we must all feel.
Sorrow and fear oh so near,
Death by-god has come here.

We lay a flower on the grave,
Watching whilst it too is taken away.
Gentle breeze washing through,
Joy and sunshine so-far removed.

For the brightest light appears dim,
Death we know has already been.
Taken away a body of love,
Nothing remains to hug.

Bringing the strongest man to his knees,
Beginning and pleading to let him leave.
Alone in his silence,
Broken and peeved.

Death cometh as it will,
Behind is left a path of hell.
For no cry, plead, desire, or prayer,
Can bring your loved one back from there.


You, your pet, and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May the glorious Lord Jesus Christ bestow upon you the strength to walk through this cloud of darkness and into the light anew.

12 is great life for a German Shepherd. You must be a good owner. I know it's hard. Don't let it get you down too much. Most Shepherds live to only be 8 or so. You gave 2 dogs a good life, 1 passed on, so it's time to rescue another. You'll feel better soon.

Explantion: You have them from me.


Personal Disclosure: My deepest condolences.
May she rest in peace.

P.S. I don't need to explain and nor should you... that pets ARE FAMILY! And the loss of any loved one is greatly felt regardless of species involved!
I am no peta freak ... but I deeply care about my pets and I'm glad you do too.

The infinite has written its name on the heavens in shinning stars, and on the earth in tender flowers.

May each star and flower blossem remind you that the bond between your loving companion and you is eternal.

With deepest simpathy for your lost.

My german shephard died the same way 4 years ago, it was one of the worst days of my life, but i will never forget what joy he brought into our lives and made us feel safe at some very difficult times, you will get through this and be proud that you had that being in your life.

Time doesnt heal all wounds, but dulls the edges ever so slightly.


all the very best.

So sorry to hear of your loss,
Our dog died 7 months ago from cancer he was 10yrs.
I was actually petrified of dogs although I liked them, at 45 I woke up one morning and decided I wanted a dog, went out & came home with a 17 week old Samoyed, my husband nearly colapsed with shock! saying "Do you know how big hes going to get". It was the begining of a wonderful friendship, he never had an agressive bone in his body, he was the most stuborn animal on the planet, he ate all my food spaggetti bolognes being his fav, we knew our place, he was our boss! we would throw his ball he would get it the first time, then next time he would just look at it & bark until we went and did the fetching..lol. when we took him for a walk people would scatter when they saw him coming, he was my teacher & my friend, & part of our family. I don't think we choose our pets they choose us, I am smiling right now as I think of him. You will too.

I'm sorry my friend... some may say just a dog... I say if you feel it... the pets can be your family... Your dog may be gone in physical form... but always alive in your heart and memories...

A toast to friends and family that have completed their cycle of life!

May your hollow void of sadness slowly be filled with joyous thoughts of the lifetime of memories you had together. Whether you are someone who tends to be more spiritual than religious or even lacking in faith I hope you can find some comfort and solace knowing in the perfect concept of heaven or life beyond you will be reunited with Regina someday. All dogs go to heaven. I can't imagine there is utopia without them.

I am sorry for your loss. Sincerely...kk

Sorry to hear of your loss and your Pom's loss. As doggy family members grieve too. I am sure she had a wonderful life. Rainbow bridge will watch over her now. *insert the hugs emote*

Do animals grieve?



We all know of animals who have stopped eating, playing, or interacting when another pet in the household has died. They are experiencing a loss of their own, plus they often sense the owner's sorrow as well. After a pet dies, we can help the other pets in the household by keeping their routines as unchanged as possible. Increasing their activity through going for walks or playing with toys may be helpful. This will not only benefit your pet, but help you too.

If they are acting depressed or are not eating, be careful not to reinforce or reward their behavior. Giving them extra attention or different food when they behave this way may actually cause them to start using those behaviors as ways to obtain more attention or get special treats. .

I too have lost a pet, and I can tell you, the good memories will soon take over the grief and things will become easier. There will come a time when you will be able to talk about your beloved friend and not choke up. It is just as painful to lose one of your pets as it is a child, I believe. For they are your children and best friends for the short time they are with you. I know mine are, and I grieve and mourn with you.

I am a pet owner of a cat I rescued from a shelter 15 months ago.....He had been abandoned....in the middle of December 2009. He was 9 years old at the time I adopted him. His name is Tristen, in celtic it means (the nosey one).lol....He is loving and very sweet; such a wonderful companion......my soul and spirit reaches out to yours and feels the pain of your loss....I know you are thankful for the time you were allowed to spend with that wonderful creature!....bless you....and if you feel so inclined...adopt another dog from a shelter.....
