Gizzy is gone!


It still feels unreal to me and the house is so empty (even with Weezie here) yet the silence seems so overwhelmingly loud, screaming at me - where is my boy?

The photo is of Gizzy sleeping his last night with me last night and he let me know in no uncertain terms that he was too tired to go on. I had the Vet check him over and he agreed as did a couple of my friends who helped me cope this morning. I know that I did the right thing and prolonging his life would have been cruel. This boy was a good dog and he deserved to leave with some dignity. He was very proud and wanted to be clean and handsome - even to the very end. Gizzy, you have left a hole in my heart the size of a crater and I will never ever forget my big little boy with the fly-away ears. Thank you for giving me such wonderful times and please, wait for me at the Rainbow Bridge! I love you and miss you so much!

Liebe Doris...
mir fehlen die Worte und mir ist jetzt etwas schwer um´s Herz...
Ich drücke Dich ganz feste...
Meine beiden Mädchen guckten mit mir gerade Bilder von Deinem Sonnenschein an...Lena versteht es nicht das Dein Junge über die Regenbogenbrücke gehen musste...
Ich schicke Dir viel Kraft von ganz weit weg...
wenn Du jemanden zum schreiben brauchst,dann melde Dich bei mir...
ich hoffe das wir hier trotzdem noch von Dir lesen werden...
♥-liche Grüße Heike

Ah, Liebe Doris.... you both were truly on my mind last night...and I said prayers that if Gizzy was ready to leave - he would let you know.....he did...and you, being the WONDERFUL MUM that you are, released him to Heaven...that was an unselfish, loving act.

Gizzy WILL be waiting to see you again... I believe this with all my heart. I know your heart is aching, yet numb from the shock.
I thank God that he brought Weezie into your life...

These next few weeks/months will be hard....but we ALL will help you get through them. I am glad you had friends with you this morning.

Gizzy WAS a special little guy....his face, his personality.... he was LOVE personified.....

I am sending you a BIG, BIG hug! I'm blowing a kiss up to Gizzy and sending one to little Weezie too.

Love, always,

♥ Robin ♥

Oh, nein, wie traurig. Ich weine mit dir. Aber du hast es richtig gemacht, auch wenn es hart ist. Alles andere wäre nur selbstsüchtig und das hat Gizzy nicht verdient. Ich wünsche dir alles Gute und ich hoffe, dass dir Weezie auch so ans Herz wächst. Herzliche Grüsse, colette

I am so sorry to hear about "little man". That's what I had named him to myself with reading all your blogs about life with him. I know he was suffering and it was a difficult decision to be made. I pray you will find comfort in all the wonderful memories you have as you face the days ahead.

Ginny said...

Oh Doris, I am so very, very sorry. My heartfelt condolences. I am glad that you have Weezie, but Gizzy was special, and had such a sweet and distinct personality. Your whole blog is a wonderful tribute to him!! We will ALL miss him!!!

Doris, es tut mir schrecklich leid, dass es mit Gizzy nun so schnell ging. Ich weiss wie traurig du im Augenblick bist, aber ich weiss auch, dass du die richtige Entscheidung getroffen hast. Gizzy hatte ein gutes Leben bei und mit dir und du hast immer das Beste fuer ihn getan.

Faith said...

Dear Doris,

I am so saddened by the loss of your precious boy. I will pray for you, and let little Wheezie comfort you now.

RIP Gizzy.
I am so sorry Doris...I know exactly how you feel and my heart breaks for you, my Sasha let me know that it was time and OK but it is still so so hard. I'm glad Weezie came along so you are not alone.
Hugs, Love Annette & Jindi

Deborah said...

I am truly sorry...I thought of you both throughout the day. I know how difficult this is for you. I went through this in Feb. my Dolce was hit by a car in our own driveway and the person just left him there. I put up a post about him because he honestly was my best friend. Our bond was so strong...I did the same as you...walking around the house mourning my boy.

I understand your pain. Gizzy was a sweet boy and I'm thankful to have known him through your blog.

1,001 Blessings...Deborah

Doris,
I am so so sorry that you have had to say good bye to your little man with the floppy ears. You are so right he will be missed by a lot of people, but mostly by you. I know it is hard to make the decision to help them along with grace.. but my friend you were right to ease his transition into the loving arms of our lord. I know he is jumping and playing like he did when he was young and healthy. The two of you were so lucky to have each other, a puppy could not have asked for a better momma... Doris you were a wonderful and loving friend to your little man GIZZY...
Rest in Peace Little Man~~~~
You will be missed!

Liebe Doris,

Schnell auf mein Laptop mal die Blogs reingechaut und da sah ich das es Gizzy schon nicht mehr gibt. Mit feuchte Augen sitze ich hier in Atlanta da ich deinen Schmerz so gut fühlen kann. Am 29.08.85 ist meine Mauzie eingeschlafen worden... Ja, ja es ist sehr schwer und die Leere (stimmt das Wort?) ist wirklich so laut im Anfang. Sei froh das die Weezie noch rechtzeitig zu dir gekommen ist, du brauchst sie jetzt sehr... Was sagt Weezie denn? Ahnt sie etwas?
Ganz lieber Gruss und viel Stärke!

Mariette

Debi said...

Doris...I am sharing your broken heart...and may this, in some small way, help you deal with his passing. Give your love of life to your little furry girl...keep your memories close at hand...and let those heal your heart. That little reascal will be waiting for you...

Marion said...

Liebe Doris,

ich drücke Dich ganz doll aus der Ferne und es tut mir so unendlich leid. Gott, mir fehlen wirklich die Worte und mir laufen einfach die Tränen...
Ich hoffe so sehr das Du jetzt irgendwie klar kommst, auch wenn nichts mehr so ist wie es einmal war.
Ich denke, Gizzy trifft jetzt alle seine Freunde wieder die er schon verloren hat (davon bin ich wirklich überzeugt, auch wenn es sich vielleicht komisch anhört)und ich bin ganz sicher, daß ihr beide euch eines Tages wiedersehen werdet.
Ganz viel Kraft wünsche ich Dir von Herzen und schicke Dir liebe Grüße aus der Ferne,

Marion

I feel very sorry... i too miss him.

gin said...

I am so sorry, Doris. My thoughts and prayers are with you. You let Gizzy be a part of all of our lives. We could visit him everyday and take the stroll out by the lake with him. I know you miss him greatly. All his friends will miss him dearly, too. Thank you for sharing his daily life with us.

Ann said...

Oh Doris I am so sorry. I know the pain you are feeling right now and my heart goes out to you. Sending big hugs and prayers to you.

sprinkles said...

I'm so sorry, Doris! I'm so, so sorry. I will light a candle for Gizzy.

Sometimes doing the right thing hurts so much.

Just know that I am here for you if you need anything.

Hi Doris,

So sorry for the late comment. The Piappies and I send you our condolences. Gizzy is a special friend especially for Piappies Mom because it somehow reminded her of Koko her childhood pup.

We say a special prayer for Gizzy that he continues to make you feel his love. You will always have a bright star that shines in the skies as Gizzy watches over you at the rainbow bridge. Run free Gizzy!

We're sending you our hugs, we are here for you, Doris.

Love,

I sit here with tears for you. We love our babies so much and miss them more so when they are gone. I've had to put down two since 2007and I've one more probably before the end of this year. I'm sorry for your pain and loss. I know how you feel.
