View Full Version : Webster our fur kid passed today

March 24th, 2014, 07:42 PM
I held him as he passed. It was not an easy thing. I may never stop crying.

So in memoriam:

Webster Oliver White

He was an adorable fur kid and loved by all who met him. He was always there for me and his favorite (his Poopah). He was in charge of our 3 other fur kids. He had a stern look because heavy is the mantle of rule. But truth...he was the kindest, friendliest soul. He fought a hard fight but could not stay. Goodbye my love. I will miss you terribly. We will miss you and love you and because we are fragile mortal beings we hope to be with you again someday.

Sorry to hear this Sandy. I too have a 15 year old dog and wonder how many more years we will have with her.

I am so sorry for your loss

It is never easy but at least he is no more in pain

So very sorry to hear. A loss of a best friend who loves unconditionally is heart wrenching

I am sending hugs your way

Sandy... I am so sorry about your loss.... I've been there, so I know how heart breaking it is to part with a beloved pet.... They go over the Rainbow Bridge, and we are devastated..... It's amazing how close you can get to your fur babies.... They are often our little soul mate.

Cry all you wasn't to.... Don't allow anyone to tell you Webster (love his name) was "only " a dog..... He was way more than that... He was your baby....

March 24th, 2014, 07:53 PM
My heart hurts for you; we lost our 7 year old Boston Terrier last December (liver failure) and the tears still flow when I think of her. At least now, we can also remember her antics and laugh. Wish you were close enough to give a hug!

March 24th, 2014, 07:56 PM
Oh Sandy, I am so sorry. I know how hard it is to lose a pet but he will live forever in your heart ((((HUGS)))))

March 24th, 2014, 07:57 PM
So sad... there are no more loyal and loving "friends" in this world... we still tear up thinking about our pets that have passed. We were with them as well when they passed... thanks for sharing and reminding us of their value and trusting us with your heart.. GB

Sandy, big hugs to you, it is so hard to lose a furry family member.

March 24th, 2014, 07:59 PM
Many, many hugs to you.

So sorry for your loss. He looks like a real cutie.

I'm so terribly sorry to hear about Webster. We lost our sweet Molly April 4, 2013, almost a year now. I still miss her and even though we love Dot & Olive, no other dog will every take Miss Molly's place in our hearts.

This poem helped me and I hope it will bless and comfort you: https://rainbowsbridge.com/poem.htm. Hugs & More Hugs to you, Sandy.

I am SO sorry! I lost my dog in November of 2013 after 11 years. He was the BEST dog I have ever known. I am very, very sorry for your loss!

March 24th, 2014, 08:48 PM
Such a hard part of life to go through. (((hugs)))

March 24th, 2014, 08:50 PM
:( so sorry - such a cute fur kid :)

March 24th, 2014, 08:57 PM
Sandy, I am truly sorry for your loss. I know how heartbreaking it can be. I know and understand that knowing others have suffered it too doesn't lessen your pain, but I had to have my beloved 13˝ year old German Shepherd, Bailey put to sleep in November and there's not a day goes by that I don't miss him. I don't know whether Webster died of old age or if you had to help him along, but I hope this poem may give you some comfort. I'm sure he loved you as much as you loved him.


if it should be that I grow weak,
and pain should keep me from my sleep
then you must do what must be done,
for this last battle cannot be won.

you will be sad , i understand;
don't let your grief then stay your hand,
for this day more than all the rest
your love for me must stand the test.

we've had so many happy years
what is to come can hold no fears,
you'd not want me to suffer so,
the time has come please let me go.

take me where my need they'll tend
and please stay with me until the end,
hold me firm and speak to me
until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time that you will see,
the kindness that you did for me
although my tail its last has waved,
from pain and suffering i've been saved.

please do not grieve, it must be you,
who has this painful thing to do,
we've been so close, we two, these years,
don't let your heart hold back its tears.

Hugs to you Sandy...

I'm with you in my heart. I lost me precious Shugg last summer. She was 9 years old. I could tell you time will heal your heart, I can tell you I understand, I can tell you it will get better. All of these things are true; and none will help now. Our fur babies are as deeply ingrained in our hearts as our children are. I still cry for Shugg on occasion, but in time you will smile, even laugh thinking of some antedote about Webster. Grief is a strange process, and different for all. Allow yourself to grieve. Grieve with your DH. And hug your remaining fur babies a little longer, a little tighter......for Webster, he will know. Hugs to you both. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Sandy, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one. Our furry family teaches us the meaning of unconditional love and loyalty. I wish there was something I could say that would make it easier, but realize time will help.

March 24th, 2014, 10:17 PM

Tearing up over your loss. Brings back memories of all the pets I've had and for all the times I've had to say goodbye.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your furbaby. It's tough letting go and having that spot in your heart hurt so. I hope you find comfort knowing you loved him as no one else could and your eventual reunion at the Rainbow Bridge.

An adorable doggie. So sorry for you. May those great memories you had with him give you comfort.

So sorry Sandy.....I have a 15 yr old cat, ( Buffy) and I dread the day he passes....he is my "Fur Kid"....and so awesome.....He likes to be kissed on the top of his head....3 times and when he gets the 3rd kiss he will just go lay down. He is such a wonderful cat, I can't imagine life without him....
Again, Sorry for your loss of your beloved Webster.
