Pierre's passing

My 15 year-old Bichon Frise passed away yesterday. I miss my Pierre, sob! This morning I unconsciously went through the motions of getting up early to feed him, and then I realized that he is gone. He seemed to brighten the room whenever he entered. Even when he was sick, he seemed to make the person entering the room brighten up. Thought I might share.

I'm very sorry for your loss & the grief you're feeling :(
I know it's hard ... they become such an integral part of your life, don't they?
Pierre lived a very long, & I'm sure very happy life, so you can feel good about giving him that :)
I'm sorry. They're such a part of the family and it leaves such a hole when they're gone.
I'm so sorry for your lose of Pierre.


The dogs who've shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits still make us think
we hear a barking at the door.
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
And, sometime, coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them...
and always will.

I am sorry about Pierre. He sounds like a great dog. I would go to the pet memorial section on this forum, others post about their losses there too, it would be fun to share storries, pictures and other things about your dog with others who have the same experiance.

Rest in Peace Pierre.
Oh, I'm so very sorry about your sweet little Pierre. Its just awful to lose a pet as they really do add such good cheer to our lives. I have a miniature donkey named Pierre, by the way, so I just love that name. Again, my sympathies on the loss of a beloved dog.
Rest in Peace Pierre. Play at the Rainbow Bridge.
Thanks for all the warm comments. I realize now that this was not the correct forum to post my message, so I forwarded my message to the pet memorial forum. Agiliitycolliemom thanks for the poem.

Belinda_Ga and all others who are just wondering:

My dad was the one who named him Pierre because he was a dog with some French lineage. Other stories I will forward to the pet memorial forum. Though thanks for all the warm comments, it makes me realize that I am not alone. Pierre I will miss you dearly :) Please play at the rainbow bridge.


Just thought I would share:

I had Pierre since he was a puppy. My dad named him because he possessed some French lineage. He was actually the shyest one in the litter. He was the dog in the corner. All of his cousins were super hyper and my sister wanted one of them. However, it was my mom that told her to pick Pierre. Pierre's sister was a digger.

I am still amazed that Pierre can take down a trash can that is twice as big as him. We came home one day to find that Pierre had eaten and left a trail of white chocolate kisses and left the almonds. A couple days before he passed, I put him up in my room and when I came back to check on him, he had scooted himself up to the tv and was watching my brother play videogames on the tv. I should have taken a picture, it was hilarious!!!

We think it was Pierre that had locked my grandpa out of the house one day. On one of the sliding doors in adjacent to the kitchen is a sliding lock that locks the sliding door. My dog does not like men; particularly those he does not know. So my family thought that Pierre pushed the lock down with his nose, because my grandpa within a few moments was locked out out of the house.

That's very funny about Pierre locking your grandpa out :D Hope you're grandpa wasn't too upset!
Thanks for sharing a bit about Pierre with us. It's so nice that you're able to look back on the good memories, even if they maybe weren't especially good at the time, & smile about them now.
Reading some of your special memories of him has me smiling!
