My Danny Boy

This is one of those posts that you don't really know if you're going to publish or not as you write it.  Normally, I don't blab a lot about home stuff, but I felt like it would be a mistake not to share.

Do you remember my beautiful tote model and photography guinea pig, Danny?


Well, Danny died yesterday.  And I'm a bit of a wreck about it, but I just couldn't imagine not acknowledging my boy and what a big part of my life he was and how much I'm going to miss him.


I'm going to put his picture up on my sidebar to keep me company for a little while where he can be young again and free from all of the nastiness of aging.  Thanks for understanding and letting me have this indulgence post to honour such a sweet soul.

Oh Terry, I just came down to use the condo's computer here in Florida and saw this post. I am so, so sorry. Those beautiful puppies of ours make their way into our hearts and lives and it's so hard to let them go. I know what you are going through and so sorry you have to go through it. You never, ever forget, but it does get easier each day. Please know I'm thinking of you and sending love and hugs.

Oh nooooooo! Terry, I'm so sorry!! Big hugs to you, I wish there was more I could say or do. :( :(

So so sorry...I just lost my Rachel Manatee a few weeks ago, she had been with us for 11 years, so I understand. Such a sweet dog your Danny was...

Oh Terry, I'm so sorry. I'm heartbroken for you. Sending you positive thoughts~

I'm so sorry you lost your boy! You did the right thing by sharing your loss with us. I didn't write about losing my best cat friend in Nov. and it has never felt right that I didn't open up about what I was feeling. Hugs! ~ Maureen

Oh no!!!!! I hate this post. Right when I saw his picture I knew it was going to be something awful. I know what losing a pet feels like and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Ugh, what an awful thing to have to go through. I'm virtually sending you a bottle of wine, a block of cheese and a slab of bread. Ya know, 'cause I'm void of emotion and can only give sympathy through food.
I'm so sorry. I'll be thinking of you and Danny.

Terry, I am so, so sorry that you have lost Danny. I know how much you loved him. I read a poem somewhere on the internet about how when a dog dies he crosses over the rainbow bridge, is young and healthy again- it'll make you cry.

Even though blogging has fallen by the wayside for me, I still check yours, and I have often wondered these last few months how your boys have been.

Take care,

Yvonne

You and I only just met a few days ago but I feel your loss just the same. Danny looks like he was smart and affectionate, and a most precious friend. I'm very sorry. Here's a Big Big hug from me. (((((())))))

Oh sweet Terry, I am so very sorry!! I know how much you love him. I know it has been hard to watch him get older and now to go though this. My heart is totally breaking for you. I wish I lived closer! Sending hugs and prayers your way my dear!:)

Liz said...

Sorry about your loss. I know how you feel, it's devastating. I lost my beloved cat three months ago and could still cry as I think about him. Hugs, Liz

Rosemary@villabarnes said...

Terry, I'm so sorry for your loss. Of course you needed to share. We'll miss him too. What an adorable model. I wish I could give you a big hug my friend. Sending prayers your way.

Oh I'm so sorry!! :(
Losing a beloved pet is horrible.

Kei said...

Aw Terry, I'm so sorry! It really sucks to lose a beloved pet, I can easily imagine how you must be feeling. He looks like such a lovely boy. Sending you lots of hugs and positive thoughts.

So sorry for your loss - he looks like he was sweet..

Amy said...

Someone told me that we don't own our dogs but that they own us. I truly believe this. Mine own every bit of me. Heart and soul, my side of the bed. I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Danny. Sending big hugs across the shield. Just know that we are thinking of you guys.

Evelyn said...

I am so very sorry to hear this. My heart goes out to you and your family. All my hugs.

Annie said...

So sorry to hear your loss. I know words cannot comfort you when you lose a family member, but we are all here for you! One of our cats just became an angel last week too. This is not the first time we have lost a beloved member of our family, but each one hurts us deeply, and I am kind of wreck too. Time should help yours and our pains...

Tina Bradley said...

So very sorry to hear about Danny, Terry. We lost our dear kitty, Salem, almost three years ago. Sending healing thoughts to you and your family. I know this is a difficult time. T.

I'm so sorry to hear about your sweet dog. I do believe that he will come to you in the future in some other form, whether that be as another dog or a protective force. BN animal's soul that is loved by a person stays near that person...that I truly believe.
