February Mourning

"Each time a loved one dies a part of us goes with them up to Heaven." ~Mama Hen
Early this morning our sweet dog Pudding went to Heaven. I got Pudding when he was a puppy in the summer of 1998. It was the same summer after my Dad had passed and he was an angel. Last year at the same time we lost my first dog of fourteen years, Cuddles. I am not sure why, but February seems to be the time for mourning and loss. It is the month of celebrating love and having lost my Dad, Cuddles and Pudding in the time of love seems right. Little Chick is devastated but feels comfort in knowing that Pudding is with my Dad and Cuddles up in Heaven. She likes to talk about her Papi being up in the sky wearing his angel wings. We will miss him very much!


We love and miss you Cuddles and Pudding.

  14. Oh, I am so, so sorry. I know this pain all too well. I lost my young dachshund, Dexter, in Sept of 2004 due to an autoimmune disorder and lost my dachshund, Dixie, of 14 years in Sept of 2009 to congestive heart failure.

    ((Hugs)) to you and Little Chick. It does help to think of them in heaven with others we/they loved. Said a prayer for you.

  19. Oh I'm so sorry for your loss! Pets are such a part of the family...I had a dog for seventeen years, and there are still some days that I look out into our backyard and remember our fun times playing together. (It's hard to believe that she's been gone for over ten years now.) I'm sending a big virtual hug your way. Little Chick's maturity always amazes me...she's so right to picture Papi with Cuddles and Pudding in heaven with their angel wings...I believe they are there watching and protecting you both!

  22. I am truly sorry to read about your painful loss. I still miss my family pet dog of 12 years. Although it has been 5 years since he went to heaven, it feels like it was only yesterday.

    RIP Pudding and Cuddles. May God's love & comfort be with you, your family and little chick *Hugs*

  27. So sorry. It is really hard to lose our pets. Having lost 3 kitties in the last 18 months I feel your losses!

  28. Awww...sorry for your loss. I totally can relate because I had my old man, Kurt, stolen in February two years ago. He was the most adorable daschund and I haven't had another dog since. However, the hubby has announced that it is time for me to move on and get back into being a dog owner. So, I'm looking forward to getting lovely little yorkie when we move this summer.

    Hope that in time you all will be able to add another little furry addition to your family again.

  29. Dear Mama Hen - the following is from Denise who could not post to your site - she asked me to forward this to you:

    May the love you exude on this page sweep you up, keep you strong, hold you and protect you during these difficult and sad days. Very sorry for your loss, Mama Chick. Baby Chick is blessed to have you explain this to her. As you hold her, feel your Dad's wings around the both of you.
    Love, Denise

    Many, many people are praying for you. Bianca

  31. I am so sorry to read about Pudding. We love these creatures that God has blessed us with! It is so hard to see them go, for they become a huge part of our lives. I am thinking of you and Little Chick. I know you are a good mama and comforter to her. I think you are right about February. Three of my blog friends have lost pets in the last week. I hope you can have a good weekend.

  34. I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is very hard on a family . I know for me it was very hard to tell my daughter when our dog died, and when I did we had a good cry and lots of hugs. Little chick is lucky to have a mom like you.

  35. Mama Hen, I am so sorry for your loss! Our pets become family and it is so hard to see them move on. Poor Little Chick must be so devastated... loss is hard for us adults to understand so I'm sure it's not easy for her. I love how you have kept your dad's spirit alive and how she can use that as comfort! Hugs and prayers to both of you!
