Clifford

Clifford
May 2, 1994-July 19, 2009


We had to say goodbye tonight to Clifford. He took a turn for the worse this evening and he was suffering. The whole family was there to see him to the end, except for Brian who stayed home with Maddie. He was 15 and taught us a lot about love. The second picture of him always looked to me like he was smiling. I would like to believe he is in dog heaven and joyfully at peace. We will miss him very much........

I am so sorry! How awful to say good bye for ever to a pet. I always cried when one of our pets died. They are the best friends we have. They give unconditional love. We buried the cats in our garden, but the dog was too big.

Oh Brenda,
I'm so sorry for the loss of your furry friend/companion. Hopefully all the great memories you have of the last fifteen years will help you and your family through this.

Brenda, I am also sorry to hear about Clifford. Our little furry friends become part of our families and they are sadly missed when they leave us. But the fun memories of them remain with us always.

I feel and know your pain right now... 15 years is a long life for our K-9 furry friends. Sorry to hear your Clifford is gone from your life, in body now. Hold on tight to all of your wonderful memories of that special little friend...
God bless Brenda...

Thank You everyone for your kind comments. I didn't know it was going to be this hard to let him go.

I'm just catching up with blogging and I'm so sad to see your news about Clifford. It must have been heartbreaking for you. His pictures are lovely. He has given you lots of love and happiness for 15 years and you have done the same for him.

He'll always be with you, just out of sight and waiting to meet up again one day.
