So sorry for your loss it is hard to lose a pet our Bridget was very special to us and we miss her everyday.
Bridget Girl and Charley wrestling. It started when Charley tackled her for the first time she was so little then about six months old and she loved it she went back after him. Then it was Bridget who would start the match, she would sit next to him while he was doing something and start poking him with her nose, if he didn’t respond she would push his arm up and slide her head under it until he reacted, which usually was right after her head was under his arm. She was so smart and funny. We loved her so much she knew how to brighten a dark day. We miss her and think about her often.
Here be my take:
I'm so sorry about Finn
We don't have any pets (had goldfish and bunnies a few years back), so I went with chimpanzees for my layout
I'm so sorry to hear about your pup! <3 I know our fur babies are part of the family.
I am so sorry about your sweet puppy! We lost our Golden Retriever Canaan (he was almost 14) last May, and it was pretty hard. We do have another 4 year old Golden Retriever- Toby, and my middle kiddo got a kitten in November. I made this page with a photo of our silly kitty Stormy- she is a mess!
We don't have any pets, but whenever I go out during the spring and summer I always look to see if there are any butterflies.
Here's my page, about the day we adopted our dog Piffles.
I'm so sorry about your loss of Finn. He was a beautiful dog and my heart goes out to you and your family. Here's my layout and I used pictures of our dog, Daisy and our granddog, Lila. They're together a lot and are BFF's.
I am so sorry. I know the pain of losing a beloved pet. They truly are part of the family.
