Good nite Holly, our beautiful giant

Saying goodbye to our Schnauzers is the hardest part. Share your memories here as we bid farewell to our beloved friends. They've crossed the bridge and returned to the meadow in full health and free of injuries. Running free. We won't forget.

Good nite Holly, our beautiful giant

Post by JoBrunt11 » 23 May 2017, 07:51

Yesterday we made the very difficult decision to say goodbye to our beautiful giant schnauzer, Holly. She had made it to the great age of 17 years & 5 months. She was our life & myself & husband are heartbroken. The house is so empty without her, it's awful. She gave us so many years of love & we will never forget her. Good nite my sweet gentle giant. RIP Holly xx

Hello Jo

I have tears in my eyes writing this but just wanted to let you know that I care.

I hope one day you will be able to look back on your life with Holly and smile.

Take care
Gill

Jo

What a wonderful age Holly reached. I know too well how you feel having lost my beautiful boy on 1st May. My thoughts are with you and although it may feel a long way off, one day you will be able to smile at the wonderful times you had together.

we also need a schnauzer.

Hi Jo

Gosh that was a good age for Holly to reach she would certainly have given you so much over 17yrs+ plenty wonderful memories there to look back on in time.

I know exactly how you are feeling having lost my precious girl Suzi on the 13th April just 4 wks short of her 13th birthday !

The house is so empty without them they certainly leave a huge gap in our life . It's still very raw for us too as only 6wks ago which has dragged by for us.

No matter what we all say to each other on this wonderful forum it doesn't ease the pain but it lets us all know that we are here for each other with support when we lose our wonderful schnauzers.

Thinking about you at this very sad time X sending hugs
Christine & Gino (Siglette Shadow (born 9/5/17 -

Suzi (15/5/04---13/4/17) (Sugarbabe) RIP loved you to the moon & back, miss you so so much precious girl

Many thanks for all your kind messages. It is a comfort to hear from like minded people who have been through the same thing. As they say time is a great healer. Here's a couple of pics of Holly..
