Pearly died here at the house this past Friday morning just after 8.00.

There are no words to express how sad we are.

    John, I am so sorry for your loss, but I am so glad you gave Pearl a wonderful live, filled with love and joy. Even in the pictures above you can see how happy she is. I know you will miss her terribly. I remember you talking about her bringing her bowl over when she felt hungry in the middle of the day. That touched me and I thought it was so adorable. Stay strong in the knowledge that you gave her a good life.

    My heart goes out to you and your family. She looks like such a wonderful life companion.

    Painful. Although Lily is still with us, telltale issues are present and we’re waiting. As a fellow lab owner, it’s like losing your third leg. Thinking of you!

    Hi Jon, my two Cats and I send our thoughts to you and your family.

    I’ve been following your blog for a long time without saying a word, but I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. I think in some ways losing a fur-friend is worse than losing a family member. The love of an animal is so unconditional and leaves such a void.

    It is so hard to lose a member of the family, especially the one who is always happy to see you and go on an adventure. So, so sorry you’ve lost Pearl.

    I’m so sorry. When I lose a furry child, I always ask my mother to greet them on the other side and take care of them until I get there. I have sent her many animals! It makes me feel better hoping they are being looked after by someone I know.

    So sorry about your loss of Pearl. She looks like she was a wonderful friend. It is so quiet when they are gone. I’ll be thinking of you and your family.

    I am so very sorry, and I know how bad this hurts.
    We just lost our third dog in less than a year, just under a month ago now.
    There were all very old, and had wonderful lives, but oh, how I miss them.

    May your memories bring you comfort.

    I rely on my pooch for so many things (love, companionship, entertainment and personal training amongst them) and truly understand how the death of a much loved friend such as Pearl will affect you all. My condolences to you and your family.

    I share your sadness–having lost three of my own…my condolences.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. There aren’t words that will make you feel better so I won’t offer any but I will light a candle for your family.

    We’re just devastated for you. Truly. What wonderful photos of the Pearl–her sweet spirit shines through the miles and medium. Please take care.

    I am so sorry whether it is your fur family or your BFF it is never easy. My thought and prayers are with you

    I’m so sorry, Jon! We put our little kitty of 21 years down in June. I never want to go through that again. My thoughts and prayers are with you. -Lin

    I am so sorry to hear about your beautiful Pearl. I have been off of internet for a little while and just checked my e-mail and saw your “Thank You” notice. I know you must be at a loss of trying to come to grips with the passing of this special friend and family member. I lost my little Roxie in Nov of 2008 and the other day I was going through some boxes and found her lead and collar. It brought back the sadness, but also the joy of having such a wonderful friend who loved unconditionally and was loved deeply by our family. Take care and cling to the memories.
