Dita our rescue dog of just over three yrs died yesterday in the garden peacefully on the grass in the sun. (this was a shock but I am happy it was this way, just old age I guess) She was a fantastic dog/companion we took her all over with us. This is her on her first day at her new home and away from what ever traumas she had previously suffered and below are her retirement years I don't want to spoil yr day. I couldn't talk about it, I am just too upset. I just had to share this with you I hope you don't mind. Love Dawn xx

You will be missed  DITA ?-15/06/10

Oh dear Dawn, tears in my eyes already, I am such a softie with animals as I know you are.

How sad for you and such a shock, but as you say the kindest way for Dita. At least you know she had peace and love in her last years with you.

No more words really, just lots of love and hugs coming your way.

Linda Ledbetter said...

Honey, I'm so sorry. There are few things in the world harder to bear than the loss of a family member, human or four-legged.

What a lucky dog to have been given such a happy life with people who loved her so much.

You're in my heart. ♥

Oh Dawn I'm so sorry to hear about your lost. I have tears in my eyes as I type as I can understand how it feels to lose such an important member of the family - we lost our two cats within 9wks of each other earlier this year and even though they were both a good age (Jessica was 19 and Charlie 15) it still hurts. Jessica was helped along, and Charlie just gave up without her.
It looks like Dita had a very happy life with you, regardless of whatever happened in her past. It should probably be a comfort that she died peacefully and not through illness, but to be honest, I'm not sure that it makes it any more bearable.

I hope you are bearing up as a family, and if you ever need an ear (or rather eye) to unload upon, my inbox is always open. I've made a few very good friends on here who have helped me through my sadnesses when I can't talk for the tears, and family/friends don't quite understand the helpless feeling.

Big hugs

What a blessed dog she has been to be rescued by such a fabulous and loving family - I do believe God knew what He was doing when He made animals for our pleasure and they do bring such pleasure!! God bless you and comfort you Dawn!! BIG {{{HUGS}}} my friend!

So sorry to hear about Dita's passing. You made her retirement years a heaven after what she had been through previously and gave her the best years she could possibly have.
