Sherlock Died

My Sherlock - This was Sherlock earlier this year sitting by my mom. I'll miss him.

My parents came over a little while ago. I had a migraine, so my dad told me to leave the dog at their house for the night. A couple hours later my parents show up at my door. My dad comes in with tears in his eyes. Sherlock got hit by a car. Sherlock's dead. Some of you may know me well enough to know he was my baby, my joy in life. I guess the best way to describe how I handled it was that I wept. I just feel horrible for my dad too. He loved that dog. With my mom's dementia, he seemed to take a lot of comfort from Sherlock's visits. But now Sherlock is gone. Please keep us in your prayers. And for those who don't understand how much pets can mean to a person, please don't leave any disparing remarks. I've included a photo of my little Sherlock.

There are a lot of us who realize what you are going through. I have been there several times and am truly sorry for your loss. People who do not have 4 legged kids do not understand. Your photo of Sherlock is really cute. It will take some time for you to mourn and I know you have the support of your dad. God bless.

AmbiePam, I am so sorry for your loss. And I feel awful for your Dad, too. I don't know what else to say that will make you feel better. I know when I lose one of my babies, I'm lost for weeks. My best wishes to you and your family...

Poor Sherlock. I'll pray for him. I've lost a loved one before so I know how it feels like even if it's a dog.

Oh my poor Amber, I am so terribly sorry about Sherlock. I do know how much you loved him. I know what it means to lose a "baby", as I know Sherlock was your very special baby. I hurt for you so much. He is on "Rainbow Bridge" with all the other "babies" that us mylotters have lost. If you don't know about "Rainbow Bridge" when you feel better read about it. If there is anything I can do, please let me know-if you want to talk, anything. My heart breaks for you, hon. I love you...And Sherlock loves you too.

I am SO sorry to hear about poor Sherlock. He looked like a dear little fellow and losing them like that is so devastating! I know there is no comfort in losing a friend like that. I am at a loss for words.

Oh AmbiePam I'm in shock to hear this and so sorry for the loss of your baby. You know me well enough that I know all too well how our pets mean to us--It's 10 months since my Pyewacket passed on and I'm still not over it. My prayers go to you during this time. (((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))

Oh I'm so sorry! That is horrible! I have a dog that I absolutely love and I don't know what we would do if anything ever happened to her! I am so sorry for your loss. I also feel your pain with those migraines. Good luck with that as well!

I am so sorry your little Sherlock is gone. Will say a prayer for you, your dad and Sherlock. It's just so difficult to lose a good pet. Sherlock left knowing he was loved. Am sure your dad is struggling as well. I am a pet lover so I can really feel your pain. Take care, carolbee

Honey, I really know how you must be feeling. I lost my cat this past October and it was very sad. Well, I'm sure your dog had a wonderful life since he probably enjoyed all of you very much specially you. Accidents happen ,and this is very common when it comes to dogs ,and it happens so fast that is very hard for anyone to prevent this. May the Lord be with you at this difficult time.

Amber, sorry if you receive this twice. It doesn't seem to have printed the first time. I am very sorry about the loss of your dog. I can see that he is a very special one. It is very shocking to me because I was expecting you to say your migraine went away and that all was well. I said a prayer for you and your family. If you need me, you have my e-mail address.

This is terrible news! I imagine how much you all must suffer. When they live they take a piece of our hearts with them. Too sad he must leave so soon. I won't tell you the sorrow will pass, you know better that Sherlock will have a special place in your heart and every memory of him will still hurt for years. I'll keep you in your prayers.

Hiya Pam, I was just looking at the lovely Photo of Sherlock. It has moved me very much reading this. I am so sorry for you and your Dad too and your Mom. I have lost Dogs too and they were like People to me so I can say I know how it feels. Again I donĀ“t really know what to say except I feel for your loss.
