We think of him everyday and will always miss him, he'll forever be in our hearts and we know he's always with us.



I don't think you should feel quilty, you can't replace one dog with another. Each dog is so very special and unique in their own ways. You may see some similarities in another dog that will make you think of Liam.

Within a few weeks of losing my boy, I adopted a young golden male from my County Humane Society. We weren't ready for this boy and I did feel quilty even going to look at him, but I have a Golden girl that is a former puppy mill momma that will always need to be with another dog. She was grieving and started to withdraw and regress. I knew for her sake I had to find another dog ASAP, but it also had to be one that was very gentle and well socialized. This boy was a perfect fit, he needed a home and we needed him. Bringing him into our lives helped me heal and he also helped my girl. He brought so much joy back into our lives.

I've had dogs all my life, as a child growing up and into my adult years. I've had at least two at a time, sometimes even 4. When we lost our bridge boy, our home seemed so out of balance.

When you are ready, I hope you will open your heart and home to another Golden.
I'm not really feeling guilty really it just seems weird. We are actually looking at a puppy Sunday that was born 12/12/12 and there were 12 puppies. Seems like kind of a omen to me.
Thank you for the kind words and wisdom Carolina mom

Liam my Buddy

I'm so sorry for your loss of your buddy Liam.
When we lost Lucy last May she was almost nine. We got Vinnie just one week later. We could not take the emptiness and the void of not having a dog to love and be loved by. Your loved one will never be replaced but your new love will take its own place in your heart.

Oh, my ... Liam was a BEAUTIFUL boy. I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my 12-year-old baby boy just this past Monday, so I know what you're feeling. Rest in the comfort of knowing that he KNEW how much you loved him -- and cherish the memories. They will be forever in your heart.
