View Full Version : Merry born June 25 2004, passed away Sept 24 2010

1st October 2010, 02:09 AM
Last Friday was a shocking night. Merry took ill and within 45 minutes she passed away. We believe it was a heart attack. You think you'll have so much time with your loved one and then you have to learn to live without her. She was a very sweet lovable dog. She had a quirky personality and an independent streak. I miss her very much.

I am so sorry thinking of you and your family at this sad time

As I look up to the skies above,
The stars stretch endlessly--
But somehow all those rays of light
Seem dimmer now to me.
As I watch the morning sun appear,
The shadows still don't fadeó
As if the brightest light of all
Was somehow swept away.

Though I see the branches swaying,
And watch their dancing leaves--
The echoes carried on the wind
Don't sound the same to me.
As I listen to the morning birds
Sing softly from afar--
It seems to be a mournful tune
That echoes in my heart.

Another day has come again,
As time moves surely on--
But nothing now seems quite the same,
To know that she is gone.
The days and weeks and months ahead
Will never be the same--
Because a treasure beyond words
Can never be replaced.

The loss cannot be measured now,
The void cannot be filled--
And though someday the grief may fade,
Her mark will live on still.
For even with my heavy heart,
I know that I've been blessed
To have been one who's life she touched
With warmth so infinite

I'm so sorry Charleen :(:(

Thank you for posting the photos of your beautiful girl - and for your PM.

This is such a tragedy - it's so hard to lose a young dog, you feel cheated. Cuddle your boys close and know that Merry had a wonderful life with you and was very much loved.

Take care

When I lost my darling Mindy - my friend and trainer sent me this quote and I found it comforting.

...."It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are."---

So sorry to hear about Merry, Charleen :( My thoughts are with you.

Thank you so much for your comforting words. I am looking at the clock and in another 60 minutes it will be exactly a week ago that Merry passed away. I cherish the time I had with her. She was an special dog. I have had dogs all my life and she has touched me like no other dog has.

Here is one of my favorite pictures of Merry after grazing in the lawn. That is one leaf of a clover on her chin.

Here is a picture of what she thinks of the Elizabethan Collar she had to wear after a tumor was removed from her eyelid.

November 2007 while visiting Cavalier friends in New Jersey.

She was a beautful pup. Prayers are still sent your way every time I see your name. It is so good you have great photos to comfort you.
