:(We lost our beautiful golden, Buddy on Nov. 26, 2011. It's been a very hard Christmas season to go through for our family. He was 12-1/2 years old, and had a good life; but I'm having such a hard time with my grief. I know time will heal, and reading all the poems and connecting with others that have gone through this helps.

I am so, so sorry for your loss. He sure was a handsome boy with a very loving face. I lost my Buddy on October 30, so I understand your pain. This is a very good place to connect with. You are in my thoughts and prayers, and Buddy will always be with you.

Buddy

I am so very, very, sorry to hear about your Buddy.
I know how it hurts.

We lost our 11.5 year old Female, Golden Retriever, Smooch, Dec. 7, 2010, to hemangiosarcoma or lymphoma. It leaves such a hole.
The only thing that has saved my Hubby and I was adopting another Golden Retriever. Please hang around us and talk about it.

I am very sorry about your loss of Buddy. He certainly was a handsome boy. The holidays certainly make us feel that loss even more. I am glad you found us here. I know it is hard but the pain will ease and you will be able to remember him more through smiles than tears.

Dogs give us humans so much. My Hubby and I can't live without a dog.
Your Buddy was so beautiful and I love that name!

What a handsome boy. I'm so sorry for your loss. So many of us have walked this path of grief. You'll find much support here and many ears to listen and shoulder to lean or cry on. When you feel able, we'd love to hear some stories about this sweet guy. Hugs.

Sorry for your loss, been there twice. First girl passed at approximately 10yrs (rescue b-date unknown) and my boy at 13yrs3months. It is not easy I know. Hope you welcome a new friend into your life soon to honor him.

Buddy was gorgeous!
I am a sucker for those lovely sugar faces.

I am so very sorry it was time for him to go. It takes a long time for the grief to ease, but it really will get softer with time.

Thank you. I'm hoping this gets easier too. We loved our Buddy so much, the pain is still so intense. Browsing around on this site breaks my heart for all the people that are hurting like we are. But thankful we had the love and companionship of these wonderful dogs! Hope we all find peace in 2012!

Buddy was a beautiful, beautiful boy. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Our first golden 'self-rescue' was named Buddy. So is the lab mix we just adopted to a family in Ontario, Canada.

Very sorry for your lost over the holidays. It's just not easy to say goodbye for now. I lost 2 of my goldens this past year. There are wonderful people on this forum who have helped me during some dark hours. I hope you stay and help mend.
