2 Years Ago Today, RIP

Two years ago today, February 19th, 2016 I had to have Sully, my dog put down. 😦

Pets give us so much, they transcend just being an ‘animal‘ and become something far more. They are a friend, they are family, they are there for both the good times and the bad, they don’t leave us and they don’t judge us for our failings or when we fall.


Gone but not forgotten, your memory lives on, inked in remembrance, thank you for being there when no-one else was, thank you for being the anchor that brought me back from the edge and thank you for the time we spent together.

  1. Thinking of you today. Dogs are amazing and often don’t get the credit they deserve. “We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment.”-George Eliot

  2. It is so hard to lose a pet. They’re family. It’s wonderful that you have such loving memories of him. He looked like he was a fun-loving, adorable dog!

  3. RIP Sully🌹

    This goes to show how she’s still with you. When they go, they take up a piece of our hearts and reside there. We never stop loving them, they will always be in our hearts.

    I had a Sully too. Except my Sully was male and he was the best dog ever! I love my dog that I have now. But it’s just that, Sully was there for me at a time in my life where I don’t think I would have made it through without him. So, I guess there must be something pretty special about the name Sully. 💙

      1. Then she was very special to you! And I think some dogs are more in tune to us than others, but I am a dog lover and a great believer that they are wonderful companions to those who are physically and mentally sick. But I used to do Dog training and I always thought there were some dogs that were extra special at this. Obviously your Sully was very special at helping you during your dark times. I’m SO glad she was. And it’s almost like she left her mark in the world. It sounds like you had a beautiful relationship. Maybe someday you can right a book about Sully. Even if you never show it to anyone. It would be therapeutic to you, and a special remembrance of Sully. I’ve already been moved by your story, and I don’t even know the whole story. Something to think about.

  4. Two years – that time has certainly flown by. This post makes me happy and sad – and a little scared looking at my own pooch asleep next to me who is now almost 13 years old and becoming a bit more grumpy and frail (much like me – especially with the grumpyness!). I’m going to be a wreck if anything ever happens to him (I’m hoping for somebody to discover the equivalent of the dog’s holy grail – you never know).
    In the meantime, she was a lovely dog who played a huge role in your life and you now have all your wonderful memories – and hopefully time has made those less painful.
    Hugs

  6. Dogs are so incredible. I’m so sorry. This was a sweet post for Sully. I worry about this a lot. Two of my dogs are 13, so I know there won’t be too much time left. My youngest will be 6 this year and he’s a larger dog. I can’t even think about it.
