Well, shit!

I said somewhere recently (I think FB), that with my favourite cat gone and my favourite dog dead, I was a little anxious about what the third thing might be (you know, bad things come in threes). Well, Bentley died today. Heart failure.

  1. Well, hell, Peter. I’m sorry. Having lost two pets very close together myself, I know this hurts.

  2. You know all I am thinking and feeling for you during this awful, awful, awful time. I am so sorry. Even Riley seems shaken by this one. All best to you, Peter.

  3. I am so sorry, Peter. There are no words that will make it better so I shan’t try. My condolences.

  4. Oh… sweet Bentley… all those hours of friendship … love… whatever it is that exists between man and animal .. devotion. Those were gifts you gave each other. The kind that is unwrapped daily. Grieve my friend… for the quiet void he left. Awww… you gave that sweet old beagle a kingdom — and his life was wonderful there. Thank you Peter .. and for sharing it all with us, too.

  5. 🙁

    I’m so sorry! What an awful time you are having! All of your boys were such good cats & dogs and I know how much they will be missed! Poor Bentley must have been just heartbroken at the absence of his buddies! I have always so much enjoyed reading about your misadventures with each one of them! I know they are special! Each one of them had a good, happy, very blessed life, and everything you gave them and did for them they returned a hundredfold! ((hug))

  6. HUGS my friend, HUGS! I’m so sorry. Pamela always has the most wonderful words! She said what I feel but could never convey as eloquently!

  7. That doesn’t seem fair. That 3rd rule sucks.

    Well – at least Buddy and Bentley are hanging out together up on that big couch in the sky. And I am truly sorry for you – my heart hurts. We know that eventually we will lose our pets, but when the time comes, we aren’t ready.

  8. I am so sorry to hear this sad news. My heart goes out to you (hugs).
    I so loved all the stories and photos and when the pain eases you will have wonderful memories.

  9. Oh, no! I’ve been away for a while – my link to your blog didn’t work and… well. Nevermind that. I’m so sorry. I’m in for a shock when I read more to find out who the cat and other dog were. Sending you (incoherent) thoughts.

  10. Peter! I am stunned. I have no words. My most heartfelt condolences on your losses…I haven’t kept up with reading the blogs lately. I am so very sorry. Hugs to you, my friend. You gave them all such a wonderful life. I do hope that you’re doing ok with all of this. It is so very much to handle. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
