Thoughts...

I guess this will be the last time I use this name to log in and post here. Gone will be the cynical wise old man who has the audacity to make snide remarks about his human.

Herbie was rejecting food the last 2 days, and I was planning to bring him to the vet this morning. Unfortunately, he left in the middle of the night. My husband said that Herbie was already gone when he went to the kitchen at about 1:30am, and he struggled with the decision whether to wake me up to tell me. In the end he decided against it, because it's the middle of the night, we might not get any pet cremation services and I'll be crying the whole night instead.

Because of the plan to visit the vet, we took him home from Scuba's place last night. I had to carry him down the stairs because he was too weak to walk much. G had suggested that we take him to the vet last night, but as it was already 9pm, I thought I could wait til morning.

I guess Herbie wanted to pass on in his own house. That's why he left a few hours after he reached home. He didn't sleep in our room, because of the aircon. When I left him last night, he was in our study room. But he came to our door and lied down and left. I guess that's the closest he could get to us. I'm sorry that I wasn't with him in his last hours. He was lying on his side, and it almost seemed that he's just sleeping, but without the noisy breathing.

Herbie is the best dog that one can have. He's patient, virtually without temper, quiet and non-imposing. He's also the easiest to feed, when he was healthy. I will miss his ultimate begging look. He's the only dog I personally know who will plonk his head on your lap to beg.



I will miss him sleeping in his favourite spot in the room. I will miss him trying to squeeze his way in while begging. I'll miss giving him his butt rubs and scratching his itchy spot. I'll miss dragging him out to sea. I'll miss bullying him and putting things on his head. I will miss him lying in his roast pig position. I will miss him running into the kitchen once he hears food. I'll miss how he likes to plonk himself down in the middle of the room or passageway, blocking everyone else. I'll miss how he tries to go table by table begging at restaurents or gatherings.

Helios seems totally oblivious to what's going on. Guess he's still young.

I'm sorta holding on well, sometimes I feel that I'm ok, then some things will trigger the memories and I'll start crying. I've been crying so much that I'm getting a headache.

Of course I console myself that at least he died at home. At least he only suffered the last 2 days. Previous weeks he was still able to eat a little. At least I don't have to make the difficult decision whether to put him to sleep if he's suffering. At least he's got a few good years with me.

There are things which I have not done. I bought a new collar with his name sewn on it, but never got around to letting him wear it, because I've always thought there'll be a 'next time'. He didn't even get to wear that collar once.

It seems so cold when the pet cremation people came and slip him into a black bag and tied it up. It seems undignified to be carried away in a black bag, but I guess for dogs here there's not much of a choice. He'll be cremated within 24 hours, and we'll be collecting his ashes. I'll place it in a corner near the dining table. I guess there's the place he likes to hang out the most.

Life has to go on, I still have Helios to take care of. I guess it helps where there's another dog and you have routines to follow.

Thanks for friends who came to visit, and to see him for the last time. And my mum who came down and said prayers for him.

Bye Herbie. Be a good boy. I love you.

julee said...

I'm so sorry about Herbie, but I'm glad he's not suffering anymore. Kind of reminded me of the time I lost Grover on Christmas eve of 2005. It's always difficult to lose a beloved pet which is so much a part of the family. I cried for a few days and it was painful to look at his usual resting place and not see him there anymore. It's alright to grieve, it just takes time. I've not kept another dog since, but it's good that Helios is with you.

Do take care.

Bye Herbie... we will miss you and you will always be on our minds.

condolences to you

M. said...

farewell Herbie, I've never met you but enjoyed reading all about you and your days with your M and Helios. I miss you a lot, and am glad you're peacefully at the rainbow bridge, looking down at your humans.

Herbie's M: many hugs and condolences your way. Crying is good, so cry away for a while. Herbie was lucky to have you, and you, him.

Amber-Mae said...

Oh no...Herbie, I thought you were getting better altho you were getting thinner. I never thought you will leave your family & us all so soon. You're were only 7, I still think that you're young. We will always miss you & I agree with GG, you are the nicest dog I've ever met. This is one sad day...RIP handsome boy.

Sending lots of hugs & licks to M, MM & Helios.

RIP herbie, i am very very shocked and distraught by this piece of news but i hope you're in a safe place now without suffering and with all the bones and toys in the world.

although i've never met you before in real life, i know we'll meet finally at the rainbow bridge someday.

p.s. my human always thought she knew you and took care of you (at Mt Pleasant), before you were adopted by your current humans, so this is very very very saddening for her. we both hope your humans and Helios stay strong and take good care of yourselves.

I am so sorry to read that you lost Herbie. Please take comfort in the fact that he is no longer suffering and you were wonderful, compassionate pet parents. When you opened your heart to Herbie, that act built a relationship that will transcend his loss. Having loved and lost my own Golden girl I want to assure you that your grief and tears will eventually be overshadowed by the happy memories of Herbie. Our pets are in our life for way too short of a time, but the impact of their presence lasts our lifetime. I know that Herbie was special, as having him in your life opened your heart to add Helios to your family. I feel you are a true Golden lover.

Your blog helped me at a time when I needed information. I found reading about Herbie’s adventures connected my heart to a virtual Golden. My husband and I are passionate about the Golden breed and want to honour Herbie by making a donation in his memory to Ontario Veterinary College, University of Guelph - Ontario, Canada. The University of Guelph's Pet Trust, is a fund devoted to providing financial assistance for the advancement of health, health care, and quality of life for pets.

Thank you for sharing Herbie with a virtual community.

My deepest condolences to you and your family.

We are so saddened to hear this news today. We've been thinking about Herbie a lot since he got sick and were hoping he would be able to pull out of it.

My heart aches for you all and I wish there were some magic words to say but I know there isn't. Just know that you have many, many friends here that care and loved Herbie as we would our own.

I take comfort knowing that Herbie is happy and healthy at the Bridge with many of the dogs that have been loved in all of our lives.

Sending love,

Hey M, I’m so sorry to hear about Herbie. I've recently also lost my pet dog, chuckles (I’m his other owner). I know the pain and the grief you must be feeling and I felt the same way too...even now when I think of him I have tears in my eyes. I miss him and all his little quirks. But just hang in there; things get better after a while. And both Herbie and chuckles are running free at the rainbow bridge happy and not in pain. My deepest deepest condolences to you and your family.

i went through the same situation earlier this year.we found out a week before she died.3days later we had to put her to sleep because she couldn't take it anymore.we knew that she was holding on because of us.the 1st day is always the worst.i cried like crazy too,and my head ached like hell.It's not easy to let go.it really isn't.i didn't want to,cause i was afraid that i would lose her memory.7 mths on.i still miss her,and the odd tear falls.but slowly the painful memories will become more pleasent.

please take care.you're not alone.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've been thinking of and praying for Herbie's recovery since he fell ill.

Don't blame yourself or think of the if-onlys....I've been reading this blog for the past year or so and from what i read, it's obvious that Herbie was loved and that you always gave him what you thought was best. That is what matters and I'm sure Herbie knows that his family thought the world of him.

Rest in peace, Herbie.

Dearest Herbie,

I hope you have met up with Oscar, Fufu, Daisie and many who went over the rainbow bridge before you. I know you all will take care of each other and share bloggie stories with each other up there.

You were always so patient, so gentle, so forgiving, and so LOVING. You proved your never ending unconditional love to your mom for the last time when you decided to cross the bridge peacefully on your own. You loved her so much so she didn't have to make the difficult position. That was the kind of dog you were. That was why we all LOVED you (and still do). And that is why this is so hard for us even tho I know we will all be together again.

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Isis said...

hi... i found out about herbie through girl girl...

I just wanted to say i'm so sorry about herbie. But i think it is nice that he got to be with you in your home in the end.

I'm sure if he was suffering- he would have let you know.

my sister works at a vet clinic, and she has to go through this almost every day, and she has to be there when they put the animals to sleep.

She says theres something about when that last breath of air slips from the body that she finds it so hard not to just start crying with the owners, especially if she knows the dog/cat.

No other dog will ever be herbie, but... you wouldnt want another one just like him.

We are all praying for you, and sending our love.


-love, isis & sister.

To Herbie's folks...we have never been to your blog, but we came after hearing the news on Lacylulu's blog...Mumsie has so many tears in her eyes, that we're typing it for her, though she wanted to convey her condolences herself. There is no pain like losing a pet...it's a special bittersweet sadness that only time seems to embrace.
