Saying good-bye to my beautiful girl Mercedez



 Rest in Peace my Friend
Mercedes Benz Carroll
1|28|99 - 1|5|2013

The day I have dreaded for sometime has finally come.  Today we laid to rest our faithful companion of nearly 14 years.  She was a best friend to each and everyone of us in the Carroll household.  We have been blessed to have had her in our lives. She has touched hearts of many with her beautiful face, kind soul and playful demeanor. Our hearts are broken.

Good night my sweet Cede, I will see you in my dreams.

I know just how you feel. We put our 19 year old kitty, Lucy to sleep on Dec. 14th. She feel asleep peacefully in my arms. Only an animal lover knows how much a pet is really family. Take care.

Shari...I am a follower of your blog, although you don't know me. My heart is breaking for you as I read such a beautiful tribute to your lovely Mercedes. It is so hard to let go of our furry family members. I had to let go of my sweet little White West Highland Terrier on the 27th of January last year. My heart still misses her companionship and her sweet little presence. My sincerest sympathies for you and your family. <3 Candy

Dear Shari- My heart breaks for you and your family. Since 1992, when I concluded chemo for my first bout with breast cancer, my husband and I have had the honor and privilege of sharing our home and lives with 4 amazing Boxers and 1 silly, but sweet Sharpei/Keyshound mix -- each one beautiful and loving. We've lost all but Miya, our beautiful female Boxer (also a cancer survivor), who will turn 10 years old in just 6 days. Miya joins Rob and me in sending our heartfelt condolences to you and the entire Carroll family on the loss of your beloved Mercedes, and hope that your many wonderful memories will give you comfort and make your hearts smile during this otherwise sad time.

So sorry for your loss...I too had to say farewell (in October) to my beloved dog Elly (named after the Mustang Eleanor in "Gone in 60 Seconnds); so they both share something in common in their CAR names. They are in a better place now and we will meet them again on the Rainbow Bridge...heartfelt sympathy to you and your family.

Morag said...

So sorry to read of your loss... below is a little poem I wrote for a friend whose love-pup had passed. I thought you might like it...

Oh I will miss the body wag, head butt and persistent paw,
Those liquid eyes that see the world, yet find its centre here.
And though our hearts are heavy now and tears do freely fall.
We celebrate the joy that IS because you loved us all!

Dotty Jo said...

That's such sad news Shari, I'm thinking of you and your family, Jo x

Barb said...

I was so sad to here about your loss. A dog brings so much love to a family and anyone who has had a loving pet empathizes with you and our family. Rest assured that you and your family provided a comfortable, loving home for her.

This is my first time here at your blog, after finding your You Tube channel today. I just finished watching a video about your craft space, which had a sneak appearance of your Mercedez....so I was shocked and sad to read this post! :'( We have a 10 year old Corgi, and know it will be so hard to say goodbye one day. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
