    We have lost 3 bulldogs over the years. We really enjoy talking about all the funny things they did and how happy they were. Keep the happy memories going. They are super funny and entertaining dogs and the good memories can last forever.

    This, the hardest thing youíll ever do, shows just how much you loved Bulldozer, and how unselfish you are.
    The healing will come slowly, but it will come.
    RIP Bulldozer.

    HI Everyone, Thank You all for your kind words, and prayers for me and my Family and for Bulldozer. I know that you all feel the same love for your Bully Babies as I do, and know that you all understand what I am feeling. The bully breed is the cutest, most loyal, funniest, and fun, and the best cuddlers of any other breed. As much as today was the hardest and the most painful and heartbreaking thing I've ever had to do, I know it was Dozer's Time, and I couldn't let him suffer anymore. He's in a better place,and he's free of pain, but I miss him so much already. I said goodbye to my baby today, my pal, and my cuddle buddy, he passed very quickly, and the staff were very compassionate and cried with me. They let me spend time with him alone in a room, he was on a fluffy blanket, they put the IV in with some sleepy medicine, so he would relax and not be afraid. They let me stay with him where I could hold him, pet him, love on him, and let him know that I was there with him. He laid his Head on my arm, and I talked to him, and prayed for him. When I was ready, the Vet came in and gave him the medication in his IV line, and he was gone in a second, he passed right away, as he was so weak. Then they let me stay with him again for as long as I wanted. I wrapped him in the blanket, and just held his head. I can't believe he didn't come back home with me. I'm heartbroken, but I know it will get better with time.
    RIP my Buddy, fly high, and run free on the Bridge, you were the best buddy, and we will miss you very much, you definitely took a piece of my heart with you today, I hope you knew that I was there with you, I hope you heard me, and that you felt my love, and know how much I loved you. Bye my Sweet Dozer, Mommy loves you so Much.

    We we are having Dozer cremated, and will be getting his ashes back in a week to 10 days, they gave us a little vial of his fur, and they are going to take a paw print for us. Thanks again everyone for listening, and for your love and prayers.

    I’m in tears. This is so hard to read. Dozer is pain free now. Even though he’s gone, he’ll always be right by your side. Cherish the memories as you had 10 beautiful yrs with him. Stay strong Monica, Blossom needs you.

    @Vikinggirl Thanks for sharing and good to know Dozer and you were so well taken care of at the vet's. We all think of you and of your pups.

    My dear family,

    I see that you are crying, for it is my moment to leave. Don't cry, please. I want to explain some things to you.
    You're sad because I left, but I'm glad I met you.
    How many dogs like me die daily without meeting someone special like you?

    I know it saddens you my departure, but I had to go now.
    I want to ask you not to blame yourself for anything. I heard you sobbing that you should have done something else for me. Don't say that, you've done a lot for me! Without you I would have known nothing of the beauty I carry with me today.
    You must know that we animals live the present intensely and we are very wise: we enjoy every little thing every day, and forget the bad past quickly. Our lives begin when we know love, the same love you gave me, my angel without wings and two legs.

    Know that even if you find an animal that is seriously injured, and that you only have a little bit of time in this world, you provide a huge service by accompanying you in your final transition.

    None of us likes to be alone, except when we realize it's time to leave.

    Maybe for you it's not so important that one of you is next to us caressing us and holding our paw, helps us go in peace.
    No more crying, please. I'll be happy. I have in memory the name you gave me, the warmth of your house that in this time became mine. I take the sound of your voice talking to me, even though I don't always understand what you were saying to me.
    I carry in my heart every caress you gave me.

    Everything you did was very valuable to me and I thank you endlessly, I don't know how to tell you, because I don't speak your language, but surely in my eyes you could see my gratitude.

    I'm just gonna ask for two favors. Wash your face and start smiling.

    Remember how good we live together these moments, remember the antics I made to cheer you up.
    Relive like me all the good we share in this time.
    And do not say you will not adopt another animal, because you have suffered a lot from my departure. Without you I would not live the beauties I lived.

    Please don't do this! There are many like me waiting for someone like you.

    Give them what you gave me, please, they need it just like I needed you.

    Don't keep the love you have to give, for fear of suffering.
    Follow my advice, cherish the good you share with each of us, recognizing that you are an angel to us animals, and that without people like you our life would be harder than sometimes it is.
    Follow your noble task, now it's up to me to be your angel.
    I will accompany you in your path and help you help others like me.

    I will talk to other animals who are here with me, I will tell you everything you have done for me and I will point and say proudly: "that's my family".

    Tonight, when you look at the sky and see a blinking star I want you to know that it's me flashing an eye; warning you that I arrived well and telling you "thank you for the love you gave me".
    I say goodbye now not saying " goodbye ", but " see you later ".
    There is a special sky for people like you, the sky where we go and life reward us by making us meet there.
    I'll be waiting for you.

    Monica,

    Your post brought me to tears... I'm glad that you were able to spend time w/him. I know how hard this is, but you gave him a beautiful life... and that is all that any dog wants in this world to be loved & cared for. Many hugs and prayers to you
