I am so behind on my blog reading and am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved baby. I know how very heartbreaking it is to lose them. I just lost my sweet beloved Niles at 9 yrs 6mos. They leave us too soon. But I still keep him in my heart as I am sure you all do too with your baby. Please know you are in our thoughts; Merrie and the jingle bullies; Murphy,Zoey and Sydney.

Tina, so sorry to hear about Tulley. What a cutie. We just had a scare with our dog Theo. They really are a member of the family.
Just wanted to let you know that I am the Megan who bought the peace ring and necklace and love them both. I just started blogging so I hope you can visit me.
Take care, my thoughts are with you!

Dear Tina and Family,
You are in my thoughts and prayers for the loss of your precious Tulley.
December 12, 2009 at 08:26 AM
So, So, Sorry to hear about sweet Tulley. I'm so thankful to know and hope you do, that we will have our pets when we join them in heaven. We have a tradition in our family, when we lose a pet, we immediately all sit down and write in a pet journal, all of the cute, sweet, funny, loving things that they did. Then we include a bit of fur, a photo, even cut a muddy paw prints from a towel and added it. Memories fade, but this helps us remember the little things about our "loved one".

I am so sorry for your loss. We lost our boxer on December 23rd last year 2008. Joxer was his name. We hung his collar and tags on the tree as a memorial to him.These little beings give such unconditional love.
You were blessed to have a little angel here on earth. Thoughts and prayers go out
to you and your family.

Oh Tina Dear, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your precious Tulley. She was truely a sweetheart and I know made your days sweeter having her by your side. Our pets become a part of us and our family. I know she will be missed. We still miss our little Mandy, (same breed as Tulley) who passed at 15 years also, 2 years ago. They touch our hearts forever, don't they!
Thinking of you and yours Tina!

Dear Tina and Family,
I was so sad to hear about the loss of your sweet little doxie, Tulley. We were also blessed with a daschund for several years. We grieved when our Katie died, too. I pray that many sweet memories of Tulley will warm your hearts in the coming days.

Dearest Tina and Family- Very sorry to here about your dear Tulley!I'm very sure Tulley is looking down upon you knowing that someday you will all be together again in a much better and happier place.We just lost our 13 year old sneakers it devastated me and our family. Loosing a pet of that age is like loosing an old and dear friend!God bless dear Tina.
December 09, 2009 at 05:20 PM
Awe, so sorry for your loss. I've lost two precious pets in the past few years and it is so heartbreaking. :-(
December 09, 2009 at 12:47 PM
Losing a dog is like losing someone in the family. I knew what you feel because I also lost my dog last November 28, 2009. It is really hard to accept that they are gone because somehow, they were part of our happy memories. All we can do now is to thank the God Almighty for He gave them to us.
December 08, 2009 at 11:42 PM
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. We've been there and it is such a difficult thing to go through. My thoughts are with your family.
December 08, 2009 at 09:07 PM
Awww... I know you guys are mourning so! I love my fur babies and sometimes get teary eyed just thinking about them being away from me. Bless you!
December 08, 2009 at 06:32 PM
I can't imagine how you are feeling. I am so sorry....
December 08, 2009 at 06:15 PM
I'm sorry. *big hugs*
December 08, 2009 at 04:57 PM
My heart goes out to you. I know what you are going through as we lost our little dachshund, Annie, on December 5, seven years ago. Our hearts just nearly broke. We now have two more doxies, litter sisters, Dottie and Millie. They are so much a part of our family.
Please know you are in my thoughts.

Oh, Tina, I am so sorry to hear that you lost your sweet Tulley. I am sitting here reading blogs with my dear little Mini Doxie puppy nestled snugly in my arms. He hasn't been with us a really long time but I wonder what life would be without him! My thoughts and prayers are with you - it's so hard to lose a dearly loved pet. With hugs, ~Adrienne~
December 08, 2009 at 09:00 AM
Oh Tina, I am so very sorry! My heart grieves with you. Our babies just never live long enough no matter what. Tulley was well loved and got to live in heaven before she went to heaven.

Tina, I'm so sorry to hear about "Tulley". I know what animals mean to our lives. They bring such a special joy. I know I would be lost with out my Pebbles. I have had her for 13 years. I had a long haired chihuahua for 16 years. I have no kids so they are like my kids.
Many blessings to you and Milton.

I am so very sorry to hear your sad news. Our dogs give us constant and unconditional love, and the loss of that love will be forever missed. May sweet, loving Tully rest in peace.
We lost both our geriatric dogs within a span of 5 months, and honestly...thought my heart would never recover. We plodded forward, with the help of 2 adorable, loving young terriers (Jake and Rusty)that we adopted from an animal shelter.
We send our deepest condolences.

Ohh Dearest Tina & Family,
I am so very sorry. My heart breaks for you. We lost our precious sugarbear, Max, two years ago this December. I still miss him so. We gave our hearts to another little one, but Max will always have his special place, just as your precious Tulley will always have that place in your heart. May God heal your sad heart as sweet Tulley journeys on to the rainbow bridge.
Hugs and sweet blessings,
December 07, 2009 at 01:54 PM
Tina - so, so sorry for your loss. We let one of our kitties go to the big litter box in the sky just a week ago. Very hard thing to get over, so stay strong.

So sorry for your loss. Pets are so special and such an important part of our lives. I know she will be deeply missed. I feel the need to go hug my Yorkie now. He is seven years old and just spoiled rotten.
December 07, 2009 at 12:20 PM
We lost our Bernese Mountain Dog Moose last spring. Over the weekend, while unpacking the Christmas ornaments and such, we ran across 'his' ornaments. We both had tears. Moose was only 6 and we still miss him so....they do become a part of our families...
Thank you for sharing and I'm so sorry for your loss of Tully...
December 07, 2009 at 11:27 AM
Tina - so, so, so very sorry. I never understood the love of a pet until jus' a few years ago - so now I completely understand the loss of one. I'll be thinking of you - love, Cathy

I am sorry for the loss of your beloved pet. I have had pets that were special. Losing them is so very hard. I now have 2 dogs in my life who are old and are facing some medical problems. I hope the writer of 'Rainbow bridge' is right. It will really be heaven to me if my Mouse, Mutt, Beulah, and Dixie are there.

December 07, 2009 at 07:30 AM
Bless your heart.... many many thoughts are with you and I know prayers are being said for you in your sadness. It is a fact of life that we all like to forget about, push aside, and ignore when these furbabies are with us. It is not a happy reality. Our beloved pets will leave us before our time is finished here. DON'T LIKE THAT!! They do add so much to our days. It's priceless. I am so sorry aboaut Tulley. I'm thankful for the pics and memories I have of the pets that have left our family already. :-) Always special in our hearts, never forgotten. Thank you for sharing this very hard day with us. We all feel the ache in your heart. Blessings....
December 07, 2009 at 07:26 AM
Oh my Tina, I am so sorry. Fifteen years is a long time. We had our beloved Bailey for fifteen and a half. We lost her last year. I agree with Claudia. Somewhere Tulley is romping and playing...maybe with my Bailey.
Hugs to you and your family.
December 07, 2009 at 07:17 AM
I'm feeling your pain and loss. We, too, lost our beloved dog Maxie just six months ago. She was 15 also and had been in our lives since she was a mere 7 weeks old. She watching over you and waiting for you at the rainbow bridge. Prayers to you.

Oh Tina, I am so sorry to hear about your
precious Tulley. I thought something was
wrong since you hadn't written in several
days. I'm glad you posted that adorable

of her eating the Doritos. What a cutie
sweetie pie!! Take care and remember a

You will be in my prayers,
