Merlin – IOTW Report


Roger is in pain today.

His buddy Merlin is not doing so well.

“It is a bad day for me. Merlin is being put down today. I am glad I have had the time I have with him. I know he will be in a better place.” -Roger

Thanks for letting me paint you, old boy. It was an honor.

  1. The more I associate with humans, the more I appreciate our animal friends.

    A loss that exceeds most others.

    Keep saying no more and then there’s still too many to be rescued.

  2. My condolances Roger. I recently went through the same with my Daisy.

    It’s always difficult losing a family member (all my cats were and are family). I wish you well.

  3. Very sorry to hear about Merlin, Roger. From experience, I know the pain and know eventually eases. But that doesn’t help much at the moment. You’ll be in Dixie’s, Killer’s, and my own thoughts today.

  4. Two things. Thank you all for your well wishes. Yes, it is a bad time, but we will get through it
    2 – I do not give a rats about OJ. Different thread and totally unrelated. I do not want to be evil or disparage anyone, but I am somewhat offended that you would hijack this discussion with that immoral piece of s***

  5. So sorry for your loss. I know the pain of coming home with just a collar after needing to put down a beloved pet that was poisoned by a neighbor.

    I found my Ninja Kitty mauled to death in my front yard last Saturday morning.

    I will say a prayer for your comfort and peace.

    I don’t wish either way to lose a pet on anyone.

    Not an idiot here.
    Just posting a recent announcement. Since I don’t play your game with signing in with fake name, I just add to existing post. I don’t think I can start new thread without a sign in, that’s my only option. Someone in your privileged sign in crowd usually starts a new thread and takes credit.

    There is a link at the top of the page labeled: CONTACT. BFH and my emails are listed if you want to send us a tip. – Claudia

  7. Roger, sorry to hear about your precious Merlin. He was beautiful. Our pet family members keep us sane in an insane world.
    Be comforted and at peace knowing he was loved and you’ve done the best for him.

  8. I feel for you Roger. It is an emotionally painful thing to go through.

    Having a pet (or two or three) is a wonderful experience in life, especially when your pet looks at you with total love in its eyes.

  9. I’m glad you made this post. My 16 year old white fluffy dog is going through the end of his life. It’s a mess for me but he still has some life left in him. I just don’t know when if ever its the right time to put him down. Any comments would be appreciated

  10. You know the day will come and you expect you’ll be strong for your animal partner, but it doesn’t make it any easier when you do what you have to do.

    Sorry for your lose Rodger, glad your time together was precious.

  12. I’m sorry Roger. I’ve had to say goodbye to a couple of my best furry buddies the past few years and it was hard. For what’s it’s worth their memory still brings me smiles and thankful they shared their time with me. I’m fortunate as are you.

  13. Remember Me

    “Remember me always, but do not grieve for me too long. I have tried always to comfort you in times of sorrow, and have made every effort to add joy to your life. I never wanted to cause you pain.

    Peace for me is certain now, and I suspect I will have eternal sleep in the earth I have loved so well. Please, after your period of grieving for me, make room in your heart for another. You are the kind of human being that should always have a friend like me to love. Your kind and gentle heart should not be wasted on my memory for too long. Give your love to another. I know your new friend will never take my place, because we had something very special. It may not be quite the same, but a new devoted and loving companion will in time, become special in their own way.

    You loved me very much and I loved you. My spirit will always be with you, and no matter how deep my sleep, my grateful heart will always remember you.”

  14. Graceia, Different Tim, and Bman – thank you.

    For everyone, yes, I am getting s***-faced tonight. I will be getting one or two cats after my trips, so look for pic or paintings after the vacations
