Man I'm really sorry to hear that. I know from reading here, how much you loved her. God bless both you and her.

I know this must be a difficult time for you Don. When you're ready to jump back online, I think that many of your friends would like to send a few dollars to help show our appreciation. Its just our way of offering thanks and remembrance to your fallen pal that we've all become so used to seeing in your comments, YouTube's and reviews. Perhaps you could buy a nice bouquet of flowers for Fizz or put the funds towards a future pal. That will be for you to decide and we expect nothing. Many of us know how it is to lose a pet and Fizz will be missed by many.

Since you’ve posted your PayPal address online before, I've taken the liberty of reposting it for the benefit of others (hope you don’t mind)

Most Sincerely,

Your Friends


BLF members, its time for us to again rally our support (we are all great at doing this). It doesn’t have to be a large contribution and any amount will show you care.

Please send donation via PayPal payment to paypal@dulridge.co.uk

Payment Message: “Fizz Fund"

I'm very sorry to hear she's passed away Don. The death of anyones pet always reminds me of pets I've lost, so I had a bit of a cry...I'm a big soft git really.

Thanks folks. It did help that so many people loved a hound they'd never met and realised how much she meant to me.

Nothing could ever replace Fizz but you guys helped.

I cannot ever say how much this means to me.

But thanks folks! You helped when nobody else could have,

 

Here's a poem from Kathy Galloway which says it all.

 

There is nothing to compare with the pain of death.

You were here, and now you are not.

That’s all.

 

I search for you in old photographs, letters,

Things that you touched,

Things that remind me of you,

But they cannot fill the space you occupied.

 

The space is in me too,

Bleeding round the edges where you were torn away.

 

In the night, strange shapes haunt the space….

Regret, fear, fury,

All the things we might have done.

All the shattered dreams.

 

How can I go on with this hole inside me?

Partial person!

Don’t let me fill the space with the wrong things.

Don’t let me cover it up,

To eat me from within.

 

Give me courage to bear my emptiness,

To hold it gently

Till the edges stop bleeding;

Till the darkness becomes friendly;

Till I see the star at its heart;

Till it becomes a fertile space,

Growing new life within it.

If I had not loved, I would not have wept.

This love you have given me;

This love I have carried;

This love has carried me.

 

And I know that though I cannot see you, touch you,

The love does not go away.

Carried by this love,

We are not divided.

And there will be no more weeping.

So sorry, Don.  Take heart that at least she went gently, after a long life of loving and being loved.

I hope we're all that fortunate when the time comes.

I haven't been on this forum for long, but I've definitely become attached to Don's "assistant". Her affectionate character could be felt through the many posts here. She will definitely be missed by many of us here.

Truly sorry for your loss Don.  It is amazing how deep a part of the family a dog becomes. 

We got our dog a few years before we had kids.  We call them all sisters with the dog being the eldest.  Dog sleeps right between the wife and I.  Wife takes half the bed and the dog takes most of the other half.

Thanks folks for all your kindness.

I'm told she will be appearing in a music video later on tonight (Around 9pm UTC). This was shot about three weeks ago.

http://www.youtube.com/user/TheLoreleiTV

 

There should be a new version of Song For The Boy going up tonight. And the final edit of Love is Blind. Which may just include Fizz.

 

Here's a delightful picture from the lovely Dr. Dobb (The viola player in the videos).

Don, my sincere condolences.  Our animal friends touch us in so many ways.

Also look forward to seeing the new video.  They do look like a really fun band.

I'm sorry for your loss Don.  Our furry little canine friends are such wonderful creatures.  

 Its a really difficult thing when a family member passes on.

Our 19 yr old, 7lb terrier mix Bruno passed last Sept.

I still think about him all the time.

Honor her by never forgetting all that she did for you through the years.

Rest in peace...
