A Sad Day


master brummie

Hard to bear Eric. We have had to overcome this many times over the years, most recently just over a year ago. Our sincere thoughts are with you.

eric,only ones who have gone through such grief knows what your going through, we had to put to sleep our daschund Fritz to sleep last august and it was a terrible day, he was put out of his pain and that did help a little,just remember all the good times you had with Sam memories are a healer god bless...Brenda

master brummie
Thank you all for sympathetic messages. It was only 16 months yesterday that I also lost my other dog AnnaMy dogs Sam and Anna.JPGEric

Eric, I am so sorry you have had to say goodbye to your lovely dog Sam. I find it heartbreaking to lose pets so I understand how upset you must be. 15 is a good age for a dog - it shows what a happy life Sam had with you.
If I remember right Sam was in one of your paintings - it was one of my favourites - walking along a path in woods I think.
Thinking of you at this sad time x


master brummie
That's the one Eric. I think it's lovely - the colours, the reflections in the puddles, the sun coming through the trees and of course Sam enjoying a walk. A lovely painting and happy memories for you Eric x


master brummie
Eric, it is so sad to hear this, and there is little another person can do to help. That being said...the picture says it all. The walks...what's not to like for a dog. You gave him a great life. Take care.
