My little bear

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.

My little bear

Post by Dinkum »

This was probably one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. I had to put my little bear, Rupert, to sleep last week Friday.

My little bear has given me so much love, joy and companionship over the years, I could not watch him suffer and had to return the love, in the only way I knew how. I had to say goodbye and release him from his pain.

My little bear has left such a huge pawprint on my heart. I will love him forever and will miss him for the rest of my days. I'm eternally grateful for our time together.

Sleep well, my little bear. Go find your friends and I'll keep you in my heart.

I offer my advice freely, but I am not an expert, breeder, groomer or behaviourist. It is simply my experience of raising pups in a way that seems to make sense.

So sad to read this Dean and hope that the wonderful memories of Rupert’s happy life with you and the family will help ease some of the pain in time. However long the time we share with our dogs it never seems enough, I know.

RIP Rupert 🌈🐾🐾❤️

Really sorry to hear about the sad passing of your little bear 'Rupert' to Rainbow Bridge. It is always hard to do such a thing, it hurts ad it is sad too but we do out of love and because we care too, because they are part of the inner family. Pease console yourself that you have many happy memories of him, especially the joy you gave each other. No one can ever take that away. Take care please.

I am so so sorry to come on today & read that your lovely boy Rupert has gone over to Rainbow Bridge. It is devastating when they leave us as I know how I felt when I lost my Suzi in 2017 it still hurts, I'm hoping that Rupert will be playing with her. They are super dogs & give us so much pleasure, so it really hurts when they leave us. Dean I see that you have Watson, make the most of every day with him, I now have Gino who I swear knows just how much I needed him when he came to me. Thinking of you at this sad time as its heartbreaking. Take care
