Elvis Is Gone



Elvis, Protecter of The Homestead.

4/2/99 – 2/3/07

Elvis was killed this afternoon. I cannot rehash the awful details of his death.

Hubby and I are shellshocked, he keeps saying, “I cant believe hes gone.”

The boys do not know yet. They’ll be asking for him soon, it is almost bedtime.

 Things just havent been all that great and now it gets even worse.

  1. Oh wow, it’s been just a little over a year ago this happened to me. I am still not over it. I’ll never get over the guilt. I have another dog, and I love her. But she isn’t Mandy. I am SO sorry.

  2. I am SO sorry to hear this. I loved the little guy and I only knew him by pictures and your words about his feisty and lovable character.

    I hope you find the right words, the most comforting words for your children. I only wished I had them for you, but I know how hard it is to lose a family member that animals are…

    I read your blog almost daily and I just adore the pictures you post here. I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your dog. I hope you and your family find comfort in each other in this difficult time. Pets like Elvis force their way into our hearts and never leave.

  5. HUGS to you and your family. I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I think all of us felt a connection with him and I cannot imagine just how wonderful he was in person. My love goes out to you all.

  6. I hope he didn’t suffer.
    I’m sorry you all will suffer.
    Please accept my sympathy.

  7. Aniin BG,

    OMG. I’m in shock. I am so, so sorry. ((((hugs)))

    Please, if you need to talk, please reach out.

    I love you.

  8. Oh so sorry to hear that.

  9. OH NO. I am so sorry. I don’t know what to say, there’s not anything I can say to make things better. I’m thinking of you and your family and I am here if you need someone to talk to. I mean it.
    I’m so sorry. Unless a person loves a pet they have no clue how it feels to lose one, they’re our family too.

  10. Oh, god, I’m so sorry. 😦 *hugs*

  11. I am so sorry honey. I’ll send prayers your way.

  16. Ph, my friend! How awful! I hope you are all able to remember little Elvis with fondness and laughs. I can’t fathom him not being at the Reservation.

    Came over from our dear friends Brian and Diane… I am so sorry. There are no words to adequately express my sympathy; I know it is like losing a much loved member of the family, but from experience I know he’ll never be forgotten.
