Tina

Tina July 24th 2004 - August 3rd 2016

My sunshine doesn’t come from the skies,
It comes from the love of my dog’s eyes.
(Unknown)

Today I am sad to tell you that my day is dark and there is no sun, as my dear friend Tina is gone. We took our final trip last Wednesday. I am heartbroken at the moment, she was my faithful companion for 12 years, I could not ask for more. She was tired and ready to go and I am grateful for the years. She was special in many ways.

I will be back in a few days, until then, be well,
Wool with you,
Lene

  2. Oh Iam so sorry. If you've never owned a dog you cannot imagine how hard this is.

  5. So sorry to hear this. My dog died at the end of June, so I understand how bereft you feel. She looks like she was wonderful in every way.

    God bless all of you. Everyone at our house (furry and otherwise) will say a special prayer for you and for Tina. Take care.

    She was named Tina, and
    Lene always greeted her with warm smiles, sweet words, and gentle hugs.
    Lene took Tina on many long and lovely walks because she knew how good they were for Tina.
    Lene made sure Tina never went hungry, and had soft warm places to sleep.
    Lene loved Tina beyond measure.

    In return,
    Tina always greeted Lene with warm and shining eyes, a doggy smile, and a wagging tale.
    Tina encouraged Lene to take long and lovely walks because she knew how good they were for Lene.
    Tina kept Lene company during the long winter nights, and thought her knitting was pretty amazing.
    Tina loved Lene beyond measure.
    And together,
    they loved each other beyond time,
    for love has no end.



    Dear Lene,
    It is so hard saying goodbye to their sweet faces, isn't it? Thankfully, time lessens the pain, leaving us with cherished memories. If it helps, know that no dog could have had a better life, or been loved more than your Tina.
    Hugs, Carolyn

  19. Thank you for sharing your Tina with us. Over the years I have enjoyed the stories of her you have shared with us. I am sorry she is gone. I try not to think about how short our dogs lives are. My little terrier is 13. I try not to dwell on her age and how little time she may have left with us. I try to just enjoy the time we have. Through your blog I know you treasured your time with Tina

  20. Always so hard to say goodbye to a companion who has enriched ones life, but thankful that there were 12 years of life together to be all the better for that togetherness. We had 18 years with a very special cat who came to us in Ireland and made the journey back to the US four years later. She will live in our memories and stories we tell as a family. How lucky we were that she was a part of so many good times.

  42. So, so sorry. We lost our Molly on the last day of 2015. We'd had her for 13 years, so the house has felt empty since then. Last week we adopted Sage, a six-month-old rescue. She's settling in. I love how active a dog keeps me!

      My sincere condolences on the loss of your beloved Tina. We also lost our dog this year and it still brings tears. Looking into a dog's eyes is looking into her/his soul, and I can see Tina's intelligence in her photo. What a lovely quote.
