goodbye old mate


I commented on someones blog the other night
about how my dog had been run over by our ute .
I was a bit flippant as I never expected it
to be serious as anyone can tell you
cattle dogs are tough !
Our poor old dog died this morning and
we are all shattered .
We have a habit here of getting dogs
that no one else wants and we have always
been so lucky to have these dogs as
part of our family .
This dog was named Blox as he was x blue
cattle dog and foxie and he was a great little dog .

Our other dog is now pining and is confused .


Dear old Blox , I hope there are cats bums galore
in heaven for you to sniff all day .
Love you mate xxxx

Big hugs to you and your family, We lost a very old cat earlier this year and I'm sure sometimes I still 'feel' Bindi watching me when I'm doing things around the house!

Oh, I'm so sorry for your loss. We have a cattle dog too (a red one), and they just have so much personality, it really is like losing a member of the family. Big hugs to you and your other pup.

Oh Clare. I am saddened to hear about Blox. Such a huge gap left in your family.

Sorry to hear about Blox. Our dogs certainly become part of the family don't they. I must admit I had a little chuckle with the 'cats bums' comment. Going by the top photo, it looks like something Blox liked doing!

Animals though they are just small creatures leave really big holes when they pass away.

Allie said...

I am so, so sorry Clare - this is always so hard.

mandapanda said...

Oh darling Clare, I am so sorry. I know how hard it is to lose a furry family member, and my heart goes out to you! Big Hugs!!!

Mom2three said...

I'm so sorry you lost Blox. It's hard losing such a dear friend. We lost our Golden two years ago and our German Shepard went into instant mourning and depression. We thought we were going to loose her as well. Needless to say we ended up bringing her inside to be with us, and she's not lived outside since then.

The Rusty Teapot said...

We also have dogs, we love each and everyone of them too. I feel for you & your family because i know the pain of losing one. I lost my fav little boy years ago now and i still get teary over him. He was bitten by a snake or spider in the back yard. xXx Sending you many hugs xXx

Danielle said...

Its so sad to know about this incident. Might be this was the fate of the dog. I know you can never erase this incident from your mind.

Stitchbird said...

It is never easy when you lose a pet, especially if it is an accident. Best wishes to you and your family and I am sure there are plenty of cats' bums in pet heaven. I know of at least one.
