What is with this year???? My two other dogs, my kitty and now my best buddy!! All in the last four months--I am scared to go home sometimes, I have two more older cats....

Yosemite was my buddy, my hound dog. He could make me laugh with just a look from his sad, droopy eyes and a step on the old ear!! I think he walked on his ear to make me laugh, it was the only time I ever saw him do that. And I watched him for hours walk and play in his kennel.

One year for Thanksgiving I made too many rolls, we would never eat them all--so I gave some to my pup. I watched him from inside the house, he would grab one and go bury it, get another one..and so on. My husband was standing by me and we were laughing wondering if he would remember where he put them all. He spotted us watching!! Went back, dug up every roll and placed them in his house, giving us dirty looks the whole time..

I'm going to miss my comedian!!!

Oh no. That's really one of the hardest things in the world.

He sounds like a loveable goofball for sure. 17 is incredible, though...so while it hurts and you'll miss him, at least you have a long times' worth of memories...

Sorry to hear about that, I have one that will soon be gone to. It is very hard for sure, just remember the good times you had with him and don't dwell on the bad.

I am sorry for you loss! My little weenie dog lived a long dog life too, he was 16. Basset hounds are so cute with those long ears and short little legs! It's hard losing a pet, I still miss my baby even after 2 years. They really make a mark in your life and they all have their own personalities. It is sad when they go but it's good to know that they got to have a great life living with us . I just only wish they could live as long as humans do. I have a stuffed weenie dog that I keep on my bed that has Bo's collar on it .

I also have a cat that is older, she is 17. I don't want to think about going through another pet loss. When my dog died I prayed that Patches would hold on longer for me because two in the same year, I'd be a wreck. They are my kids!

So sorry for your loss!

I just loss my protector, comedian and sweetheart a few months back... I can still cry when I think about him.

A few tears are natural, and are a testament to the love they give us. I'll be thinking of you and your family in the days to come.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. Losing a beloved pet is never easy. Here's a poem that often helps to comfort those that have experienced pet loss:

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
