Comment: Read your book and it really hit home. I highly recommend it to others who are having a hard time. The grief over the loss of a pet can equal or even exceed that of a person.

Comment: In the spirit of your book, let me share a message with you that I received after putting my 14 year old Lab down: "I don't know how you feel about the standard judeo-christian hierarchy with God on top, the faceless entity sitting on his throne all aglow passing judgement on the mite-size mortals on the floor in front of him, down past the various cherubim all the way down to the dark one whom the snake-handlers refer to as Beelzebub, Lord of the Flies. How you relate to all that is a matter of personal preference and not the subject of polite conservation. My feeling on this particular subject extends outward to the belief in angels. I know angels exist because I have seen them, heard them, and sometimes frolicked with them. I have seen angels walk through our lives with hearts swollen with love on a straight path of righteousness that no human, no matter how divine, can hope to imitate. I have heard the sound of this journey: the click click clicking of four sets of toenails on the floor whenever you refresh a dogs' food or water dish. That is the sound of heaven on earth. We share your grief over the fall of another angel"

Comment: Here's a letter I got from a couple of friends of mine that had to put down an elderly dog companion. I think you can feel the emotion and separation in this letter... It was really rough last night, letting her go. Everything went smoothly, our vet came to the house and it was all over in about 15 minutes. He took her out in a blanket to be cremated and ashes buried. She was a little anxious when we held her on the blanket but we rubbed her and talked to her until she went out. It was quick and painless and now she's free of the pain in her hips and legs. No more seizures, no more accidents, and no more struggling with her environment with no sound and little sight. We know we did the right thing for her, but today we're really missing her. Everywhere we go in the house, we see her spots for lying and watching us go about our routines. She always only wanted to be with us and with the people we shared our life with. Cooking dinner tonight without her under my feet, hoping for handouts, was sad. We're processing our grief well, talking out any moments that come up. We know eventually the pain will subside and only the happy, funny thoughts will remain. That's the way it is for April, our previous companion, now when we think of her. But for the next while, we feel her loss. She was a great companion and member of our family. It's like losing a child, I guess, especially when we've chosen to remain childless. Our cat is a little disoriented now. She hates any kind of change and this is a major one. She is hanging out closer than normal today. She's become quite the lap cat and affectionate kitty in her old age. She seems healthy and ready to go on for quite a while longer. But eventually we'll have to open our hearts again and find a puppy who needs our love and devotion. Not for a while though. The timing will have to be right. Anyway, we know you understand and care. Thanks for being there.

Comment: Had to get our dog Wolfgang euthanized today about an hour ago. He was 14 years old and had trouble with his legs. Today he couldn't get up and it was pitiful to see him struggle to try to. My wife and I knew that this day would come so we were somewhat prepared. At least we thought we were. It was so hard to see him go because he was such a big part of our lives. We will miss him terribly. Thank you for developing this website because it has answered alot of questions that we had and it has helped us cope with our loss. God Bless to both of you. Looking forward to reading the book soon.

Comment: Thank you for a beautiful book. We lost our cocker spaniel, Munchkin, on December 21st. Your book has helped us work through our grief. I know Munchkin's spirit is with us and we will meet again some day. We are working through our grief and know that in time the memories will bring smiles instead of tears.

Comment: We will be "putting down" our 9 year od engligh bulldog "Bulls-eye" on Tuesday. Our 10 year old daughter (Marina) was the one brave enough to discuss such an option. For Miss Bulls-eye suffers from cronic hip problems and has been in a great deal of pain and loosing all dignity. Loving Marina witnessed her(Miss Bulls-eye) falling as she tried to step into the back yard to go to the bathroom. We have done the meds, we have done it all, and now we must be as brave as Marina and say goodbye. Marina is greiving and her heart is heavy, so is mine. May Miss Bulls-eye be at peace come Tuesday...Oh how we will miss her

Comment: i just finished reading your book & i cried all the way thru it.my story is similar to yours. @ first i wanted no parts of my baby bo-bo (a dalmatian), but after just a couple weeks, he had won me over. i will never forget the eight years we spent together. my taking care of him thru all of his illnesses, his taking care of me thru everything, sleeping together @ nite. i loved this dog as if he was my child. he suffered from epilepsy & a thryroid problem, but you couldnt tell him that. thats why, after he bit both my father & me and the vet told us that the epilepsy was probably catching up to him and that it would only get worse, i had to make the hardest decision of my life, to have him put to sleep. i had to wait 10 days after he bit me, the longest 10 days of my life. i felt like he was on death row. but i knew what had to be done. so the following saturday, i took him to church to be blessed & then we were on our last ride together. i stayed with him thru the procedure and i am glad that i did. not a day goes by that i dont think of him or miss him, but i know that he is no longer suffering now and free to run when and where he wants to. so thank you for sharing your story, it has helped me to realize that there are others out there who have experienced the same loss & that its ok to have these feelings for a pet.

Comment: We had to put our beautiful chow, Chyna-Lyn to sleep back on September 22nd. After two weeks of trying to diagnose Chyna's problem, after an ultrasound, they finally told us they were sure that Chyna had stomach cancer with no chance of recovery. I have no children and Chyna was the first animal I had. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever know how much love she would bring me or how much I would love her. Life seems like it is never going to be the same. I never thought I could do it but when the time came to bring her to the vet, I sat with her and told her how much I loved her and how sorry I was that I couldn't help her as the life just went right out of her. I feel like my heart is truly broken and will never mend. I have not read your book as yet but I plan to. Many people have told me that dogs do not have souls, but I need to believe that my beautiful Chyna is waiting at the Rainbow bridge for me to come. Every day when I think it is a good day, I find myself just stopping to think about her and I just cry. I try to shower all of my love on our other chow who I love just as much, but I look at her and know that she too is growing old. I don't know what I will do when God takes her from me. We had Chyna-Lyn for eight incredible years, but not nearly long enough. Thank you so much for this site. I truly need to re-enforce my belief that my beautiful Chyna is in a better place, free from pain. Thank you again for your site. I still need to talk of her and I think people around me are tired of hearing it. Chyna's Mom.

Comment: I am going to order the book . My dog Bosco (nicknamed Bubby) is my best friend. I am 33 and have many dogs in my life and loved them all. Bosco is somehow different. From the day I brought him home as a pup two years ago he has had a special place in my heart. Not even past lovers have ever had such a place. He is my boy. I am Catholic and do not belive in reincarnation, but I sometimes think he is a boy trapped in a dogs body. I can not and do not want to imagine the day I will loose him. It bothers me deeply to even think about it. Although that day is most likly very far off. I am trying to deal with the fact he is not going to be with me forever. I would give up any amount of time in eternity so that I could spend whatever time I was granted with Bosco at my side. I would give anything the Lord ask to have him in Heaven with me.

Comment: My argument would be that in order to contain the soul within the body (brain actually), the three major mammalian biochemical cycles (glycolysis,Krebs,electron transport chain) are all required because for the soul to remain fuctionally within the body is an endothermic process. Do you agree? How do you give a substantial well-detailed, well thought out, epistemologically sound argument defending the proposition that dogs have souls? I like to believe this too but justifying the belief has nothing to do with what you like to believe. Thank You

Comment: Mr. Mosman, or should I call you doctor? It appears that you must have an awful lot of expertise when discussing souls of any living being. It appears to me that you question whether a living being can have a soul and then, as if it is a scientific fact, you pontificate your hypothesis of what constitutes having a soul! The soul is contained in the brain and three major mammalian biochemical cycles are required. AND, you want justification of why one would believe in souls. Get REAL!

Comment: I lost my beautiful Samoyoid Nic over a year ago and not a day goes by that I don't miss him terribly. I have set up a memorial to him with pictures, cards, sayings, etc. I have his picture in a golden heart that I wear around my neck close to my heart. This past December my fifty-three year old cousin died of cancer. The last time we spoke, she addressed me, even though there were others in the room, and she asked me why all the animals were lining up with their owners. I gasped and could not answer her. I felt so relieved that it was really true. I am in awe of animals and find them to be beings we should aspire to be as wonderful as. I look forward to reading your book. I enjoyed your wonderful website.

Comment: We have to put our beloved CHANDA to sleep tomorror. Dear Lord I wish it we me instead of her. I have cried so much my throat hurts, my chest aches and I can't come to grips with the whys? The only reason it has reached this point is at 13 she can not longer get up due to bad hips and when we do get her up she can no longer walk. She messes all over herself and it takes me for-ever to clean up the messes. She weighs about 110 pounds and we can no longer carry her in and out. She is just to heavy for my 57 year old husband. I know we have done all we can, but the decision is still terrible. Please keep us in your prayers. Dee

Comment: in reading this book, it brought back so many memories of all our pets who have since left us. Even now, tears come as I think about each one of them. I can't ever imagine my life without one of God's special creatures who give so much love and loyalty.

Comment: We lost our Bloodhound Murphy last night, he was with us from the age of 5 weeks and would have been 12 years next Jan. 21. He was loved more then any dog could be loved. We did all we could for him and he passed to the bridge last night. It is going to be hard not having him here with us. I hope he is at peace at the Bridge with Moses, Moxie and Tide who was not a Bloodhound at put up with a lot. God Bless them all. Mom and Dad Bullwinkle, KiKi and MoJo the Furkids

I told my grandson that she is in heaven playing with our cats Milkdud, Biff and Baby. I do pray that there is a place in heaven where I can be with them again.

Comment: I have the most wonderful dog laying at my feet slowly dying of old age. I dont know how I can bring her to the vet to euthanize her. But I HAVE to be there for her. I havent even made the appointment yet its hard cuz her appetite is so good, but her body frail. I'd appreciate it if I could get some prayers for her to pass in her sleep... her name is Bearbeaux. A few prayers for her Mom to handle this wouldnt be so bad either. Guess with all the things going on in the world I shouldnt be so sad. But with all the things going on in the world its been nice having her around. I will never forget you Bearbeaux!!

Comment: On Sept 29. my eleven mouth tabby cat chased aother cat across the busy street and was hit by a car, I ran to pick him up and he died in my arms. While I was holding him I noticed my little nine years old crocker/cross was at me feet. When I bent down towards him he went back on the street too and was hit by another car. I lost two of my babies in less than five minutes. I miss them both so much and feel that Buddy (my dog) was my fault because I never closed the gate behind me. I'm going to look for you book and prey that I can fine answer such as "their alright and Buddy forgives me..."

He was my little man who slept by my head every night and batted paper balls for fun everyday.I will forever miss my little buddy and we still have two 14 year old girls Brianna and Ashley and will miss them when there time comes.

Comment: Somebody ran over Miss Kitty earlier today. She was a housecat, and I feel stupid admitting, but also my best friend. I tried to keep her in the house, but she would streak out everytime she heard the key in the lock. I feel so bad, because I'd put her in a room by herself today so that I could go out the door without worrying about her jumping out. We have horrible neighbors who throw rocks at my German Shepherd. Anyway, when I let her out of the room she still managed to escape when my husband opened the door. What's so horrible is that someone actually went off the road to hit her. It breaks my heart that some people are so cruel. I have been grieving for her all day. I don't have anybody to stare at me while I sleep, and I no longer have her to stick her paws out from underneath the chairs or tablecloths. I'd even gotten her a little stocking for Christmas. To be honest, I loved Kitty more than most of the people I'd met. I wish the man in the blue truck knew just how much hurt he'd caused a family...

Comment: My cat died today at the age of 16. His name was Rocky. I loved him dearly. He's been there for me when my life was rough. I already miss him terribly. The Bible passages on this page do give me comfort. ANd being Catholic, I hope the Patron Saint of Animals (St. Martin of Porres) will keep Rocky safe until I will be with him in heaven. I love you Rocky. I love you very very much, and I will never forget you.

Comment: On December 21, I losted a family member. Ebon'e was like a daughter to me and my husband. Although we are lefted to grieve along with her mate Bear, I feel so lonely. I miss her so much. She died after child birth. We are lefted with 12 puppies to try to save and raise.I'm angry although it was not the puppies fault,I just want my baby back. I miss her and my heart feels so heavy.Being the best mom I can be to her children is helping me and my husband.I understand that in time our heart will heal,but that time seems so far away.

Comment: As a child, my family welcomed an unwanted "runt" into our home. She was a beautiful brown tabby, and we named her Krummel, which means crumb in English, because she was so tiny. I fell in love with her, and she was my best friend for many years. I lost my beloved cat 8 years ago, and I am still heart broken when I think of the loss. I missed her terribly when I went away to university (she stayed at home with my parents). I came home for the Christmas holidays that final year, and was shocked at how old and frail she was. My mother had warned me that she was getting old and ill, but I was not prepared to see her like that. She could hardly groom herself anymore, and I grappled with the idea of euthanasia. Thinking I was helping her, I gave her a bath -something she hated!-, and she died later on, in the middle of the night. I woke up the next morning, and my first thought was: I hope she hasn't passed away... I was devastated to find that is exactly what had happened. I felt so guilty! It was really difficult to get over her death, and I pray about her a lot. I know with certainty, however, that she waited until I came home to die. There is no other explanation for her hanging on like that. Someone once said that I could not understand their grief concerning the loss of a family member, and when I suggested that I could, since I had lost my cat, they were highly insulted. The funny thing is, I still feel justified in my statement. I know animals are not humans, but our emotional and spiritual bonds with them are equally as deep and meaningful. God bless you Krummel, and thank you for being a part of my life.

Comment: I lost my cat,Sam to a neighbor's dog Wednesday evening. Sam was a stray that we took in two years ago and he immediately became a part of our family. Everyone who met him adored him. His personality was truly unique. I had many cats in my lifetime but none with a personality like his. Today is Friday and I still cannot stop crying. My heart feels broken. I pray to God that I will be reunited with Sam when I die. I am having him cremated to have his remains close to me until then. Thank you for this site where I can honestly express my feelings. Some people just don't understand the pain you feel when you lose a pet.

I bought your book from Amazon believing it to be a TRUE story about a real dog, Miss Sarah and you folks, the Watsons. Then I see the disclaimer that this is a work of FICTION and a product of the writers' imagination?? What is the truth? It would seem with all the wonderfully real stories out there ( i have many), it would not be necessary to make up a story. So, is (was) there a Miss Sarah? What about the cats?...photos?...George & Emily?... Or have the names been changed as indicated?? pls advise....I hope the story & facts are true. I just lost my beloved Chow (nearly age 15) just before Christmas...Pls advise.. many thanks... Very respctfully.....

Comment: Dear Robert, We are sorry you were unable to Email us and we have no idea what the problem was. Our Email address is still sarah@dogshavesouls.com. Yes, Miss Sarah's story is true and Morgan the cat was real. When we wrote Miss Sarah's story, we were advised to put the work of fiction disclaimer in the book even though the story in and of its self is accurate. Thank you for contacting us and for placing your comment in our questbook. Sincerely, George & Emily Watson

Comment: 1/13/02. I just put my dog down. I have never done this before and felt so very guilty. When I cried I was asking my pet to forgive me. Your book helped immensely in knowing that my pet forgives me and is now in a place where she can play everyday instead of pacing in circles, sleeping all day, having seizures and not enjoying life. I know she is in paradise and is waiting for me to join her when it is my turn.

Comment: We lost our beloved dog Bailey yesterday morning. She died from renal failure at 6 years old, and we are overwhelmed with grief. We have no children, she was our girl. A devoted, loving companion, she loved everyone and everyone loved her. I want to believe she is in the safekeeping of our own departed loved ones until we are reunited, but I wish I could have proof.

(He was twelve and one- half years old and he had heart problems.) But I can't quite deal with the thought that I "snuffed out" the life of that dear sweet little guy.

He had been abandoned by the road with his brother and both we're in pretty bad health. I nursed them back to health. But Bill had an eye that didn't heal completely. But he was beautiful, black shiny fur and had a full of life personality. He was little. I called him Little Bill. I miss him so.

Comment: My story is a bit different. I witnessed the death of my Sheltie by our Golden Retriever. I am still in a state of shock. Thank you having this site about dogs having a soul. the sad part added to this is that we won't be keeping the Golden Retriever. So this is a double loss. I had my Sheltie from the time he was 3 months old. I have never had a pet for their whole life. He was 14 1/2 years old. He just got over being gravely ill with pancreatitis and a bleeding ulcer. He was such a good friend. We went through a lot together. We moved from Pennsylvania, to Florida and then to Colorado. His Name was Brandy. he was tri colored - sable, white and black. His loyalty was incredible. I will miss him more than words can say. Thank you for your site and the encouraging bible verses. Donna

Comment: I have often stated that if my animals aren't going to heaven, I'm not either! And the argument has come up a lot on whether or not they have souls. So I am so glad to see the scriptures stating that indeed, they do. I guess what seemed obvious to me, isn't to some others. But all you really have to do is look into their eyes. Thank you for confirming this!

Comment: On Tuesday, May 14, 2002 at 7:15 pm, we lost our beloved Mouton. After 13 years of companionship, the loss is beyond words and our hearts hold fast to the memories of our baby. For all those grieving the lost of their dear pet, dearly hold on to the gift of love that was given to you and cherish the beautiful memories that will always be a fond reminder of what "unconditional" truly means. Without the lessons we learn, or should learn, from our pets our world would be a much sadder place to live in. In special memory of Birdie's Magic Mouton - he brought magic into all the lives he touched with his unique joy and companionship. His spirit will live forever simply because he brought so much to our family and dear friends.

I needed to know that he was with God but I had so many conflicting messages. Yours tells it all. It is truly written. You can't even imagine how many Preachers and Pastors have no idea about this topic! God bless you, from the bottom of our families hearts THANK YOU!

Comment: We put Dijan asleep yesterday. We were there with her. She suddenly stopped eating and lost weight. We had blood test run and it was probably leakemia. She got very sick very fast. We probably should have done it sooner but you conveniently find ways to ignore the signals that your dog is getting old and getting sick. Its just now that I realize how very different she became from the dog she once was. Even Murphy is taking this very hard. He also stopped eating and had taken to sleeping in her bed. The vet says this does happen and to give him a few days. I've always thought of him as the "younger dog" since he's probably 5 years younger than Dijan. But now I'm noticing that he's getting old too. I guess I'm taking this so hard because I've taken them for granted. I thought Dijan would become far more old and crotchity than she did. The house is just so quiet now. No one barks when someone comes to the door or at the squirrels outside in the morning. I don't have to make sure EVERY tissue is thrown away or make sure there isn't food left unattended on the dining room table. Funny how "just a dog" can have such an impact on the way you live everyday. Even the absense of poop needing to be picked up in the back yard is disturbing to me right now. Anyway, Murphy started eating again. I'm glad this website exists. I have lots of friends who totally do understand but I was surprised at how hard this has affected me.

Comment: I just came across your site tonight as I sit hear weeping. I had to put my dog to sleep today and I can't stop crying. No one would go with me, my husband left the room before the injection. As I watched her drift off to sleep and slowing die I wondered if I was doing the right thing. She has been suffering with a tumor that they could not remove for some time now and it was getting ready to burst, so I didn't want her to suffer. I miss her so much. I have another dog at home that is missing her too and we seem to be the only ones. As she left me I wondered if I would ever see her again. Like you I can't beleive that God put these beautiful creatures on earth only for us never to ever see them again. Thanks for listening.

Our 7 year old dog Pookee Joy has renal failure and it is very hard thinking of how long he will be with us ( we are doing saline drips ) and it is so hard to think of putting him down. I don't want him to suffer but life will be very lonely without him. Thank you for giving us hope and making us smile. There is a reason for everything. God Bless You.

Comment: I had to put my beautiful cocker spaniel down last week. He was with me for 10 years, he was my best friend and companion. He had an enlarged heart and could no longer breathe freely or eat. It was a hard decision, but I know he is in heaven and I will see him again someday. I will miss him under my feet when I am cooking, he was always there, not necessarily looking for handouts, but he was just hanging out with me. I miss him terribly.

Comment: There is nothing worse than the loss of someone we love and in your case, Holly! We are sorry for your loss. Talk to friends who are sensitive towards animals and that will help a lot. When we lose our four legged friends, it hurts so much that we sometimes want to blame others for not showing the concern we want. In your case, your vet. BUT, we believe he did what his heart told him he needed to do and though we may not always agree with the Dr. he probably saw something that led him to do what he felt had to be done. Do not feel animosity towards him for his decision. May you find peace in knowing that Holly is now in God's hands. God Bless, George & Emily

Comment: I am unbelieveable heartbroken at the fact that my family and I will have to put our first family dog to sleep tomorrow at 12 noon. Rok, who is an eleven year old rottweiler and black lab mix, has been in my family since he was 8 weeks old. He has been a terrific dog. He would listen so well that we did not need to chain him up EVER. He would not leave our yard nor would he bother anyone that would walk by. At first our neighbors were a little concerned that he was not on a chain, but soon they all loved him and felt comforable enough to allow their children to come to our house to see "the Big Dog". Rok was always 110+ pounds. Unfortunately, for the last year he has been consistently loosing weight and now he is 80lbs. It makes me sick to my stomach knowing that after tomorrow he will no longer be around. I can't stop crying, because I will miss him so much. My sympathy goes to anyone who has lost their dear dog. I never realize why people got so upset when their loving pet had to go...I know too well now. I am sick to my stomach!

Comment: Hello Denise, when we were ready to let our dog "Sarah" go, we spent what little time we had with her taking pictures and just letting her know we were with her and loved her. Yes, it hurt! And, it is never easy when we lose our four legged friends who have been so much a part of our life's. Speak to your friends, who also love their pets, and exchange stories of your pets. It's good therapy and hopefully, it will make your loss a little easier. Our prayers are with you and Rok. George & Emily

My husband and I were with him here at home and he died as I cradled his head in my arms. We have three other "children" and an outdoor cat whom we also love dearly; hopefully we can find some comfort through them although each is unique and one can never replace the loss of another.

Comment: Our beloved dog "Hussy Puppy deceased Friday May 9, 2003. 15 years ago God answered our prayers when we found out that we could not have children our next door neighbor gave us their puppy. We named her Hussy Puppy. She brought us so much joy and Love. Hussy was an mutt she was an smooth foxtere with some beagle in her. She was an God sent Guardian Angel to us and an faithful companion. About 5 years ago she was dianoised with Cushings Diease, the vet said she would not last for couple years. With God's grace she made the move from Charlotte, Nc to North Myrtle beach, SC, her health did start to decline, but i am thankful that she was able to go take long walks on the beach and chase seagulls. Hussy Puppy started going deaf and started to go blind some, but she could still have the sense of smell. She died this past Friday may 9,2003 of having more severe strokes so God called her home and now she has no more sufferings, she has an New Heavenly Body...She will truly be missed...We Loved her so much...faith, Hope, Love....ken and lisa kesler May 13,2003

My dad and Ruff were best buds (used to watch him when we were out of town) and my dad passed 11/2001 and we know where Ruffy is now :)

She has a hard time standing or sitting, her eating has deteriorated to almost nothing, and she has little bladder control. Yet she still has the strength to greet me with a swift wagging of her tail and tilt of her head. I know it's time but I am finding the the task almost unbearable.

Comment: Let me start by saying I've always wondered if my pets would go to heaven. The only definate answer I've gotten has been a "no" but somehow I felt in my heart it wasn't true. I lost my friend, Oliver (a long-haired orange tabby) last May and I'm still grieving over him. Oliver was hit by a car on the day of graduation and it nearly killed me. Now, normally I like to stay the "brave" one and not let my feelings show, but when Oliver died, I cried more than I ever have before. Oliver was extremely special to me. I believe God sent him to me during my introverted childhood to give me hope. Oliver was the dearest pet I have ever had. Unfortunately, I just can't let myself get that attached again. Your website has been a great help. So much so that I put a link to it from Oliver's memorial site (if you don't mind) Thanks.

I'm waiting for a sign from her to let me know she is ok, I on the other hand, am not!

I am not afraid to die, for I know you will be waiting there for me, if you can ever forgive me. You were giving me kisses in the car not having a clue where you were going or what was about to happen. Please forgive me, momma loved you dearly. The house is so quiet and lonely without you. Please anyone reading this that still has their little creature around, give it a big hug and kiss and tell it you love them dearly. My tears will not stop flowing, and I wonder if they ever will. It is not so much that I miss you, as much as it is will you ever forgive me? not that I don't miss you. Your presence is not in the house anymore but in my heart. Please forgive me, for I feel I will never ever be able to forgive myself. RIP and may God hold you until I am able to be with you. Your momma

Comment: http://www.petloss.com/frames/fbrdglst.htm - This website will help also. I myself will be lighting three candles at 10p.m. EST. one will be for my pet, the next for other people grieving and sick pets, and the third will be for the animals that are being abused and neglected. I really urge you to visit the Rainbow Bridge. For now I know that is where my Lobo is playing until the day I come to visit him. This really is an inspirational web site also.

Comment: I was just 16 months ago when I found this great website and here I am, back again. I couldn't stand the empty house without Dijan so I finally found another angel. She was an older rescue who loved me dearly. She followed me through the house, her nose in the back of my knees, she kissed my face, over and over, and she jumped in the car at every opportunity. Not even a full year later she became very ill, she was suffering. It was a different cancer than what affected Dijan but there were similarities in their effect. I was so lucky to have this very special dog, for the short time we shared together. We really bonded. We really needed each other, and I was there for her until the very end. Please send a prayer for my Indy.

Comment: having lost a wee Jack Russell just before christmas it has been hard to live with the terrible quietness that we experience when we enter our home. He was a wilful and demanding little dog but what a character!...it is people who are genuine dog lovers that appreciate just how painfull losing a dog can be! We have had a couple of spooky incidents that have made us feel that Max may still be around...I'd like to think so...in the meantime I do my best to support animal causes and tell other people the real joy a dog can bring to your life! I am not yet ready to get another dog!...too raw!...too soon!

Comment: Thanks for your site.It really helped. Reading the stories helps, especially the scripture page. My husband and I just had our 15 year old pit bull Caesar put down yesterday after he was not able to walk anymore.The look on his face told us to do something.We know we did everything we could for weeks before. He started refusing affection and food,which I learned was a sign he wanted to go.The pain is unbelievable though! He was a constant companion, and best friend,going to work in the truck to the office,every day and staying in his bed watching us there each day and knowing when it was time to go home at the end of the day.The emptiness is killing us.He was my little guy....a human in a dog suit.I misss him so much.

Comment: I am an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church, and I do believe animals have souls. I also know from past experience that losing a beloved animal companion is every bit as painful as losing a human family member. I have experience with insensitive "Christians" who do not understand that level of emotional pain. I have never been asked to officiate a funeral yet, either for a human or an animal companion, but I will do so for either if requested. Thank you so much for the bible quotes, I will underline them in my bible.

Comment: A friend told me about your website when she learned that I was doing a children's sermon on animal loss. I enjoyed the site, especially the scriptures and personal stories. AS a mother and teacher I have often been asked to pray for sick or dying animals by children. I have also been asked about what happens to animals when they die. I have compiled my thoughts on the subject into poems, personal and true stories, and children's sermons. I have found scriptures to share with kids and adults. I am glad to know that your site is available. Our latest loss was Cooper, our daughter and son-in-law's dog. He died on Christmas Day of 2003. It affected us all greatly and resulted in much crying and sadness. We miss him very much but have a lovely picture of him that my brother gave to us and our daughter and son-in-law to remember him by. I am thankful that you care and can help and comfort others who have losses.

Comment: I can't imagine that animals wouldn't be in heaven, or obviously it wouldn't be 'heaven'. I am still working on the exact theology of it, but if God cares so much for the birds that they never worry about being provided for as it says in the bible, why would he ever leave them out of heaven? I don't think angels have souls either, but they are in heaven too...

Comment: My Good, Good Dog Rocky's life slipped away from my arms at around 5PM on Tuesday, July 27th, 2004. He was a dear companion and truly my best friend. He was a vizsla and was 12 & 1/2 years old. Still I wish that he could have lived till 20; even then it probably would have been harder to loose him. It's a terrible reality that God's good creatures die before us; that our sins make them suffer as well. I hope and pray to God to take care of him that his spirit is happy. I hope that when I die, I will be with him again.

Comment: I got home late on Sunday morning and as usual Dulu Boy our 16 year old poi dog greeted me and I let him out to use the bathroom. He's been going out late in recent times (I'm thinking because of his age)this is about 1:35 AM. I set my alarm for 4:40AM in order to wake up early enough to go to Sunday mass. Anyway when I woke up and went into the room to wake up my dad (he's deaf, the dog sleeps in his room) we discovered that Dulu Boy had made a mess and apparently when he tried standing he hurt himself and couldn't get up.We have cement tiled floors and Dulu's left leg was already giving him some problems, so I'm thinking he slipped and hurt himself bad. I took him outside to wash him and left him outside for a little while and he was having such a hard time, he couldn't stand, was breathing really weird and looked to be in pain. I watched as he struggled to drag himself back in the house. He was fighting so hard. It killed me to see him like that, but I am so proud that he tried.He was whimpering and crying. I made a little bed for him in my room and I brought him in and as soon as I laid him down he was at peace and just rested quietly and kept still. He just wanted to be with us in the house and not be left outside. It was so touching to me.I became upset because I didn't know what to do. As he rested I came to my senses somewhat and began to thank GOD for the sixteen years that we had with him and came to the conclusion to put him down.I missed mass by the way, to take care of him and at about 7:30 we prepared to take him to the Humane Society in the family van. Once there we did the necessary paperwork and what not and the worker came out with the cart and I put him in it.He lifted his head up and had this look like what's going on as he kind of looked around as we said our goodbyes.They refused to let us be with him when they gave him the shot, which kind of sucks if you ask me.Anyway it hit me hard later back at home and I've been weeping bitterly since, here and there, just brief moments of intense grief mixed with joyful laughter and smiles. As i reflected on that mornings events different thoughts came and went, Did I act in haste? I wonder if I did the right thing or not? Maybe I should've took him to the vet, but my financial situation prevented that. Or what really happened? That is the difficult part, not knowing what really happened. He still lived a happy life, his appetite was good, he played and still showed interest.But his leg was in poor shape and after seeing him in what probably was excruciating pain I went with my first instinct. It comes down to this. You just got to have faith in GOD and trust in him. He made all creatures. He gave us 16 wonderful years with Dulu Boy and I am thankful. This just happened yesterday so the pain is still fresh. I could have stayed home and go the depressed route and do nothing, but that's not what GOD nor Dulu would want me to do. It's uncanny. I have this picture holder by my desk at work that for a long time had a picture of me and a friend of mine in it. On Friday afternoon before going home I cahnged the picture and put one of Dulu in it holding his favorite toy in his mouth. It made me cry when I got into the office this morning. I will nver forget him and all the joy he brought to me and my family. He always made a dark day bright. I'm glad I visited this site.To Dulu Boy I know you went home to Jesus yesterday and we will meet again one day.We all love you! Brothers forever.Your Big Bubba.

Comment: I lost the love of my life in May of this year. Miss Sally had lived her entire life of 15 years, as my best friend. She suffered with some type of spinal problem, they weren't sure if it was spinal disease or cancer. They didn't give me any hope that she would get better. She had no quality of life anymore, even though I did what I could to make it easier for her. She struggled to stand up, she would lose her balance and just fall down, she couldn't eat or drink from her bowls without making a mess, she was losing contol of her functions. Losing all the dignity she prided herself on. I made that difficult desision and called the vet to make an appointment. I fixed her a big bowl of ice cream. Then we had cookies. Things she loved. I gave her brushing and told her she was so pretty. When we got to the vet, I was able to stay with her, and I felt that was my obligation. I kept my hands on her, talked to her and we looked at each other until she closed her eyes. At that time, guilt overwhelmed me. Who was I to make that decision? At the same time, she looked more peaceful than she had in a long time and I felt that she deserved that peace. I have struggled with those feelings, even though I know she is running and jumping and barking again, like she did when she was young. No one will ever convince me that a creature that has so much character has no soul. Thank you for letting me tell our story and Sally, I miss you.

Comment: I am so glad I found your site. It has provided great comfort and insight for me. Two weeks ago, we put our wonderful, golden retriever Sam to sleep. I stayed with him talking to him about all the happiness he brought to me over the 8 1/2 years I was blessed with him in my life. My husband, whom I married after getting Sam was there by Sam's side that morning we let him go reassuring him he loved him and would miss him too. Sam was a great little man for us. We gave him our time,our energy and our love. But, he gave us much more.He taught us patience,unconditional love, and just enjoying the simple everyday things God gives us in our lives. He was always happpy in spite of his arthritis and thyroid problems. How could my sweet little buddy not have a soul! He is playing with my Mom right now in heaven while he looks over his shoulder waiting for our arrival.

Comment: I was searching for reassurance that dogs have a spirit which lives on, and thanks to your site, I have found it! We have a 14 year old black Lab, Bruno who has very bad arthritis for which he has pills, though he still walks a little and is always happy to greet us. He has been a most wonderful pet to our family over the years, and my heart is breaking because we have been told by our vet that we will need to "put him to sleep" before Christmas. I have never felt so terrible and sad about anything - I can't stop crying even now. My husband wants to keep him as long as possible and has bought enough pills to last another month, even though they cost us hundreds of dollars. Every time I look at our poor dear Bruno I feel so guilty that we are planning his end, and I can't bear it. We are going away for three weeks at Christmas (can't take him with us)and don't want to leave him with anyone as they would not care for him as we do. So the timeframe is getting shorter. I do not want to wait until he can no longer get up or he loses his dignity, but as he is so very bright and alert still (the vet is amazed) but it is his arthritis and also huge lumps all over him. His hind quarters are very lame and he needs help to get up even a small step. I just hope and pray he will forgive us when the time comes. The vet says he will let us know what that time comes, but what is worrying me is that he may not be ready to go before Christmas and I feel very guilty that we may do it too soon, even though he is having difficulty walking much, and standing. Anyway, thanks very much for your site, and for listening. Margaret. Bruno we love you very very much.

Comment: Dear Margaret, I visited this site today, Rainbow Bridge I mean, as I am grieving the loss of a dear friend. I happened on this link and read your notes. I want to share with you my story and let you know that you are not alone and that I share your pain. We have some neighbors, who have had two dogs about 11 years of age that they have had since puppyhood. About two years ago, because of new carpeting, they had to become outdoor dogs. One of the two had a terrible fear of thunder and storms and would jump the fence when left outside. They had a huge outdoor kennel in addition to the fenced yard and a shed that the dogs could go into from the kennel. This did not help "Max," as he was so afraid. He would get out and I would take him home. He was in the pound a couple of times also, because of running away. About 4 and 1/2 months ago, I asked the kids where my favorite dog "Max" was, because I hadn't seen him for a while. The kids stated that "Max" had jumped the fence again and that they were not going to try to find him. It broke my heart to hear that and after a week, I called the city in an attempt to track down "Max." I found him on a Friday and he wanted to come home with me of course, cause pounds aren't the greatest places. I remember him howling when I had to leave him, but I had to arrange the fee payment through the city office on Monday. (Couldn't take care of it at the pound as it was a pound for several cities) Monday I called and for some reason the city guy wanted to call the owners to give them a chance to retrieve Max. They got mad at me, said they would pay the $200 fine and pick him up and have him put down, because he was such an old and "Psycotic" dog. Told the city Max had accidents all the time and had a poor quality of life and that I was just going to make him suffer. Well they never did reclaim him. I paid the fine and picked up Max on June 8, 2004 and brought him home. One of my dogs hated him and the other quickly bonded with "Max." I renamed him "Maxie-Doodle," cause he was just so funny and such a lover. He just seemed like a "Maxie-Doodle" to me. He never had an accident and was the best, best boy. I told people that I wished my two dogs were 1/10 as good as "Maxie" was. He was so healthy when I took him in for a check-up, that my vet said he would probably live another 5 or 6 years. He had worms which let my vet know that he hadn't had regular vet care, as she said heartworm preventative would of prevented hookworms. We had all the shots and "Maxie" came home for a longer life with me, I thought. About October 3rd or 4th Max started to vomit and had the "runs" and had a decreased appitite for about a week before that. After 24 hrs of vomiting about 4 times, I took him in to see the vet. They hospitalized Max overnight for dehydration and his blood tests weren't quite right. That was Monday October 4th and I brought him home Tuesday the 5th, with him being better according to the vet. He started vomiting that night again and Wednesday, bleeding from his bottom. I took him back in Wednesday night for an ultra-sound to see if he had something serious and they found nothing, so I took him back home. The bleeding became intense and I called my vet Thursday to consult. The vet who had seen him up to then was a different one, as mine was not available. I had to run some errands that day at noon, so my vet wanted me to bring "Maxie" in so she could observe him and then I was to meet with her at 5:30 p.m. to discuss her thoughts. Within the next hour, Max began to bleed so bad that I called to say that I was bringing him in to have him put to sleep. My gut had told me all along that something was terribly wrong and I decided not to put him through any more. My vet agreed, which was a Godsend to me. The only thing that bothered me about the other vet that started the case, was that he threw out so many options and then said, "I can't tell you what to do." My vet, who I had been seeing for years, would tell me what to do. At that point, Max was loosing so much blood, that we had to stop and do the right thing. I don't know if you have ever gone through that final chapter of loving your pet, but it can be beautiful. My vet had a uthanasia room, separate entrance and "Maxie-Doodle," she and I were on a soft bed on the floor. She really surprised me, when she began to cry. We talked and she shared that "Maxie" had such a special story and that he was such a special dog. She was so sorry that we did not have more time together. Today is Saturday and i'm still crying, but I thought of this site and listened to the music and then read your story. What I decided was that the purpose of "Maxie-Doodle" coming to me is this and I believe it with all my heart. I believe that God knew that "Maxie's" days were drawing to an end, so he sent him to me. Thank God that his owners abandoned him, so he could be cared for properly at the end. I know he wouldn't of gotten that from them. "Maxie" was with me long enough to show me all his funny sides, his playfulness, his unconditional love and most of all, that he was nothing like his previous owners told the city. For some reason I began taking many pictures of "Maxie," before he got sick with a new camera I was obsessed to buy. I have a wonderful picture collection of him, for the short time I had him. One day short of four months. I best close Margaret, but please know that my thoughts are with you and if there is anything I can do or say please e-mail me. I don't know where you are, but i'm in Brooklyn Center, MN Please take care and I will pray for your beloved dog and your family. Sharon

Comment: Animals do not have souls. Sorry but just because you are grieving, having other people say what you want to hear doesn't make it true. This is just the bargaining stage of berevement. Having a soul means you have a choice to love god and follow his plan or not, consequently ending up in either heaven or hell. Again I'm sorry, I know you're just trying to get through hard times but you can't look in a fish bowl and honestly tell me you know which goldfish have accepted God in their hearts and which have damned their eternal souls to the devil. And yes I have owned many pets. Cows and pigs are more intelligent than dogs and cats so the next time you eat a sandwich remember than by believing animals have souls you have willingly been a party to the murder of a living, breathing, God-fearing soul. Unless every single one of you is a vegetarian who would never buy a leather chair, fur coat or a down pillow. Just because you love them doesn't mean they fully understand it, much the same relationship we have with God.

Comment: On November 24, 2004 my Staffordshire Pitbull Terrier, 13 yrs old, died of cancer. He was diagnosed about six months ago. I had to have him euthanaized and it was very hard. I have been crying off and on all day since this afternoon because of the things he did for me. I am a divorced mother,living only with my dog in our home. I have epilepsy and BamBam would always know when I was about to have a seizure and when I did have one he would lick my face until I came around. He also would not let me cry when I felt a littte lonely, he would begin to wipe the tears from my eyes. BamBam was a very special companion, he provided me with the love that no man could provide except for Jesus Christ. I could have him sitting next to me and be talking to him and sometimes I think he really understood what I was saying. A companion like this is very rare to find. At this point, I doubt that I will ever find such a rare loving companion as he is. People were always asking me what kind of dog was he because he was very much the "kings" dog. He was tall and stood with such grace that he demanded your respect. He was not vicious. I did not train him like that; only for my own protection. Today I have lost my very best friend, my love and my keeper of the castle. I know that God has a special place just for him because he was just like an angel who watched over me. He was rarely without me, or I without Him. I was always in a hurry to get home to him if I were on vacation to retrieve him to go home. He was just as glad to see me. We were and still are inseparable. He is my heart. I commit his body back to the Lord, put his heart will always remain with me. I thank God for years that we have been together and for such a special companion to his mistress. Loving you always, Your Mother. (See you in Heaven Bambam)

She loved to cuddle with me and I miss her greatly. It was so hard to let her go. I see her all around the house and still watch not to trip on her. It has left a big void in my life. Miss Puffin will live on in the great Memories she has left behind. But the void will remain. She gave the best Puffin kisses......right to the end! God Bless her always.

Comment: One day in the spring of 1993 I came home from college to find a surprise, there was a new puppy my parents brought home. You were a puppy named Toby, a baby Yorkie! We quickly became friends and over the years had lots of fun. You used to try and catch animals on the television screen.. lions, tigers, and bears... oh my! Those little feet tried to pick them off the the screen as fast as they could. You used to try and catch the light beam from a flash light. You would run upstairs at night push your Mommy's and Daddy's bedroom door open and lay in your little bed, right next to your mommy. You would jump up on your mommy's lap as she sat on the recliner, then you would ask her to put up the foot rest so you could lay on it. Sometimes your little feet would stick down thru the spaces and I would play a game with you. I would tickle your little toes and you would look down to see who was doing that. When you ate you sometimes played a funny game with your food dish, pushing it left and right while growing at it between each little bite. A few years later as you turned five we noticed you started drinking to much and wanted to go outside too often. We noticed one of your little eyes looked funny. We then found out the bad news from the vet .. you .. you, poor little Toby had diabetes! Your mommy and Daddy thought that maybe you should go to be with Jesus, that losing your eyesight would be too much for you and they did not want you to suffer. I, your brother talked them out of it and told them to give the vet a chance. Well, you needed two shots a day but you never seemed to mind. You were a little soldier doggy who adapted to your loss and found his way around the house anyways. You were always happy dispite your loss of sight. I could never fool that nose, you always knew when your brother was making something yummy that silver box that beeped when the yummy was ready. You would bark and bark, that ment "I want some of that too"! We never stopped playing tug of war together, even years after you went blind we still played that. Oh, that's right.. you had a doggy brother named Eric. You and Eric loved car rides. You provided Eric company well into his later years of life, till one day in the spring of 2002 Eric found a new home with Jesus. You were alone now as far as having no doggy playmates. But you still had us! I moved away before that in the fall of 2000, I wonder if you and Eric missed me. Did you wonder where I went? I would come home now and then to be greeted by you, your little tail moving as fast as it could. I had another doggy named Rusty where I lived, and in the fall of 2002 I moved back home full of sadness as I no longer lived with a lady and her little boy who both I loved so much. You kept trying to chear me up! :-) Well, I never saw my other doggy much after that and don't know where he is anymore. :-( But I still had my Yorkie brother! TOBY BABY!! Around Christmas of 2004 we noticed someone started to have problems finding his way around the house. :-( I knew my days with my brother were drawing to a close. On Sunday morning ( 1-23-05 ) you started to bark in pain and you would not eat or drink, what? My baby brother did not want yummies? You could no longer go potty. You shook and barked in pain! I could not bear to see my Toby suffer! On monday came the dreaded day that you would leave your beloved home for one final car ride to the vet. I tried to hold back the tears as your mommy held you wrapped up in a blanket. As you layed on your mommy's lap in the car you grew quiet. You started your journey to the rainbow bridge, as the vet looked you over she said you were out of it. She still found a heartbeat but you had fluid in your lungs and your temperature was low. She asked your mommy and I if we wanted her to try and treat you. She said you still might not live. Your mother and I looked at each other with sadness and decided it was time to let you go and say the long goodbye. As your little body layed on that table I said "I love you Toby" as I pressed my head against you and sobbed, the vet said with sadness "I'm sorry". I kissed your little head one last time and rubbed you as I said my last goodbye. I turned around and walked out of that room with tears all over my face. That was one of the hardest goodbyes in my life. I could not hold back the tears as we drove home without you! We returned home to a house that seemed empty. My baby brother was gone! He went to the rainbow bridge and Jesus watches over him for us. Toby, I prayed for you and asked God to take care of you till one day when I leave this earth I will find my baby brother Toby with all of the other animal friends of my life waiting to greet me home too! Now as I sit in front of this computer two days after you went to your eternal home this house is not the same. No doggy laying next to me as I type this, and no baby Toby asking for a treat. For the first time in decades this house has no doggy living in it. It might have another in the future but I can not share my love with no other doggy yet. This was your home, and it will always be your home in spirt. No matter what I do in life you will always be in my heart, my little hero Toby. The little dog who went on living in happyness dispite what he had against him. I LOVE YOU TOBY! Your mommy, daddy and I miss you!! RIP Toby Betz Spring 1993 - January 24, 2005( 1-26-05 )

Comment: I received a note from the Companion Animal Memorial Fund today and it was the most touching thing to know that my vet cared enough to send money in by wonderful pet's, Ebony name. I went to there website on grief management and that is how I found my way to your site. It is very uplifting to know that there is so many people that feel the same way I do about there pets and yes I totally agree that all pets have spirits and souls. Thank you for a very wonderful website.

Comment: I came across your link and wanted to make sure you are not the only one that believes animals have souls. Throughout my studies of animals, spirituality, the word soul means breath so anything that breathes has a soul as far as I am concerned. I am a practicing hands on energy healer/provider and interfaith minister and I assure you that animals have souls. I am also being trained as a animal communicator and even though they look upon death as not really a death, they are truly somewhere in their own little heaven. There is an old Jewish saying that when we die, we will be judged by our animals and how we treated them on earth. I hope this helps.
