Broken hearted...

Today we had to say good-bye to our sweet doggie Makela. She was 14 years old and seriously the best dog in the world. I spent the majority of the day hugging sobbing children and trying to comfort them in their loss. Never easy to say good-bye....

We love you Makela- thanks for being the best doggie ever.

We know exactly how you are feelings. We have had to say goodbye to two of our golden retrievers over the last couple of years.

So sorry for your loss.

Oh, sad...you were telling me about what a great dog she has been for your family. She filled a huge role in your family for sure!

Amy, I am so sorry that you and your family had to say goodbye to Makela. I know how difficult it is to say goodbye to our loving animals. I've had to do it too many times. It can literally tear your heart into. My heart goes out to you all. She looks so sweet. My two year old is looking at her picture wanting to hold her. He knows a sweetie when he sees one. Sending hugs & love to your family from ours.

Oh I'm so very sorry. We've lost a pet of 15 years recently too. Sooooo painful. :( I happen to think that if lions and lambs are in heaven then there's no reason to believe cats and dogs won't be. We plan to see our pets again someday. :) (((((hug)))))

I saw the picture of your sweet pup on another blog's link and came here. I am so sorry for your loss. Your Makela looks exactly like my Dually. We lost him 1.5 years ago after 13 years, and I understand your sadness. Praying the Lord brings comfort to you and your family.

It's been 2 years since we said goodbye to our Sydney and we still miss her and cry for her. She was such an important part of our lives. You'll never forget Makela, how she walked, ran, walked in circles before she layed down, cuddled, etc. Cherish every memory you have. Gather pictures of her and take them with to Guatemala. So sorry for your loss. Dogs are so precious and such a blessing.

Doggies are family members too and their roles in our lives are huge. So sorry for your family's loss. But there'll be a reunion one day and Makela will wag her tail and lick your faces in Heaven. She's with a few of my besties right now who are waiting for our family too. Hugs and Prayers.
