"Pepe" Caruana
March 15, 2001 - April 16, 2013

You came into our lives as a 10 week old bundle of white fur. It didn't take long for your Mom to come up with your name... that happened on the ride home. Mom said, "Boy he sure is a peppy little thing". And so you were named, before we even got you home.

What magnificent beauty and joy you brought to our family. You were our little tough guy! Not afraid to go after a Great Dane, if he was clumsy enough to walk on our lawn. To say that you were a perfect watchdog is an understatement. No one could get near our home without your radar going off, along with the Pepe bark alarm.

You loved sitting with your Daddy, no matter where he was in the house. At work in his home office, there is a little bed for you, where you spent days keeping Daddy company while he worked. You provided him the joy of relief from the monotony of the business day, simply by being there, and jumping up for attention if too much time went by without a good pat. After work - to the favorite spot.. the recliner in the living room where you curled up on Daddy's lap and watched TV.

Your Mommy knew how to make you look your prettiest. You were her baby, and you loved when she called you that. She would work her magic every month after you came back from the groomers. Her finishing touches made you absolutely beautiful. Mommy was always there for you when Daddy wasn't home, and sometimes you preferred her. Too much of Daddy can be a lot for anyone.

Your Sissy always had a magical relationship with you. You enjoyed making Daddy jealous by paying attention to Sissy. You loved it when she took you on long walks in the neighborhood. That was your very special time together, and you frequently asked her to take you.

You were the heart of our family. You always knew how to get us to do what you wanted. You trained US! You had little daily rituals, like when we would give you a dog biscuit (bone), you expected us to try and take it back from you. You wanted us to do this so you could growl at us, and then go hide it behind a pillow on the sofa. We never tired of playing this game with you.

Our lives have an empty space now. One that we can feel. We miss you welcoming us home. Even if we were just gone for a few minutes, you were so happy to see us, and we were just as excited to see you. We could not possibly have loved anything more than you.

Thank you for 12 years of your love and precious gifts. Our little guy! We will see you again.


Love Mommy, Daddy and Sissy.

Those wonderful Maltese! NEW
by: Anonymous

Sorry for your loss.
I have lost one little precious fellow at 11 years old to congestive heart failure and it was very sad. He was a loving and loyal companion.
Now I have a little girl Maltese who will be three years old in May, and she is a "character", but in a good way! They are just great little dogs, and bring lots of sunshine to our lives.

I want to thank everyone for their kind and sympathetic comments on this tribute. It is very clear that most Maltese owners feel the same way that we do. Your heartfelt comments mean a great deal to us. Thanks again.

So sorry for your loss
by: Roscoe & Lilly

Roscoe and Lilly are my two rescue Maltese. I know how much joy your Pepe had brought to you. The unconditional love our pets give us is unsurpassed by anything else on earth. Let your hearts heal, store your fond memories in the depth of your soul, and then, when you are ready, share your lives with another maltese. Perhaps you might give that love to one who for whatever reason needs to find a forever home.that love will be returned to you ten fold.

SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS
by: Patty

I know you're missing your little friend!! I have a Maltese, Sugar, almost 5. She's such a joy to me, as I live alone. She's great company to me. A Maltese has a personality not to be equaled by any other doggie breed--truly a joyous personality.
My thoughts are with you, during your time of loss!

My Punkie is a 9 year old beautiful Maltese baby. I love him with everything that's in me. He's the one person I can go to when a problem comes up and he completely understands. His "D.B." (Daddy Bob) is also someone he loves and someone that loves him back completely. I wouldn't want to imagine my life without him. He's my best "5 pound" friend. When I'm not feeling well, he stays with me all day, when I'm sad, he licks my face. He is just unconditional love every single day and I love him more than I could ever say! He's my 24/7 best friend!

Sorry for your precious lost
by: Carolyn

I am so sorry for your lost. Your tribute to "Pepe" brought tears to my eyes. She looked like my dog "Captain". He is 6 months old and is the apple of our eyes and heart...(my husband and I). Daddy, (my husband) is his favorite, although I know in my heart he adores me. I feed him, play with him and make sure his basic needs are taken care of...I would say much more than daddy. It's just that daddy gives him more pets and hugs and although I do pet him, I definitely discipline him more. My husband has been sick and was hospitalized for a while before we got Captain. It is amazing how much good Captain has been for his healing and has energized him more than I could imagine.
Your memories of your precious Pepe are something that no one can take from your family; make they comfort and make you smile for I am sure that is what "Pepe' would want. God Bless!

Beli's Lymphoma

Beli after 8th chemo
Beli and Grant

My son Ryan and I picked Beli out on Valentine's Day 2005 when he was 3 weeks old. When he was 6 weeks old we went to visit him and take pictures of him. I was able to finally bring him home on March 16th, I chose the name Beli because in the baby book I was looking in it said it was Welch and meant "white" and being as he was a Maltese and white. We all fell madly in love with Beli!!! He was the smartest dog I ever met. He understood almost every word we said. He anticipated our next moves and was my precious baby boy!!! He was so funny too. He would see another dog do something and notice they got attention for it then he would start doing it. Last Sept. 29th we got a new dog a 3 year old rescue Maltese girl named Molly. Beli and Molly loved each other very much. They would run and play and watch out for each other.

On June 10th of this year I noticed a knot on his neck, but I was on my way out the door to go to work so I didn't think to much about it. The next day I had scheduled him and our other Maltese Molly an appointment at the groomer. Beli had real long hair and being as we live in Florida I had decided to cut both of their hair short for the summer. When I went to pick them up after 6pm that night the groomer told me he had swollen lymph nodes all over his body. I felt them and decided I would take him to the vet the next morning. That next morning the vet told me she thought it might be lymphoma. I went for a second opinion on Saturday and the next vet suspected the same thing, so he sent me to a vet oncologist. I called the oncologist office first thing Monday morning and they had me bring him right in. They tested him and confirmed my worst nightmare that my baby had lymphoma.

Beli had his first chemo treatment that day June 17th. He had chemo scheduled every Monday for the next 7 weeks after that first treatment. On July 1st Beli was in remission and we were thrilled!!! He had his 8th chemo treatment August 5th. We were told to come back in 2 weeks. We took him back on August 19th and were told he was no longer in remission. My heart sank, but the oncologist seemed optimistic that he could reach remission again and she changed his chemo and he started going back weekly. When we went back on August 26th she told us she thought maybe he was still in remission and he didn't have chemo that day he was given an antibiotic and we were told to come back on Sept. 2nd. She decided he was not in remission and she started him on a new chemo. His next appt. was Sept. 9th and she gave him a stronger chemo treatment.

On Wednesday night Beli started throwing up and I called the oncologist the next morning and she said bring him in. I did and he was put on an IV and he started feeling much better. That evening he started having diarrhea I stayed up most of the night with him and took him to the oncologist first thing the next morning September 13th. They put him on an IV again and gave him plasma. He was up walking around and felt so much better. I stayed there all day and at 3 pm she told me she would be keeping him overnight and for me to go get our other dog and bring her there that she thought it would do him good to see her. I left to go home and as I got home the oncologist called to tell me Beli had taken a turn for the worse and his kidney's were shutting down.

I called a neighbor and she drove me back to the office as I held my baby and she gave him the shot for him to pass on and be out of the pain he was in. My baby boy crossed over the Rainbow Bridge around 5 pm that day.

My life has changed so much in the last nine months. I lost my 27 year old human son Grant on 12/7/12 and now my precious furbaby Beli on 9/13/13. Beli was like a son to me in every way. I am beyond devastated to lose him. He was what got me through losing Grant. His unconditional love was so great!!! He was a Mama's Boy!!!!

Tribute to Maltese - Shannon

by Darlene Barefoot
(Windber,Pa.)


This is a tribute to my Maltese Shannon. Shannon was more than just a dog, she was a very special member of the family. Over the 15 years, not long enough, we were lucky enough to have her Shannon formed a special bond with every one in our home.Just her presence in the house made life a little easier to handle. The void she left can never be filled. Not a day goes by that I don't think of her. I'm thankful that when it was her time to leave us God let go quietly and in no pain. I told I loved her very much and one day I know I will see her again.

Maltese Memorial - Rocky

by Lori
(NJ)


I had the greatest Maltese Rocky who was 7 years old. He shared a wonderful life with his 5 year old sister Adrian and his people family. I had gone out to dinner and left the two of them in their crate- When we returned, Rocky was unable to use his hind legs and was panting like crazy. I rushed him to the nearest and best hospital in the state and informed me that he was paralyzed with no feeling in his hind legs and no sensation of pain. I was hysterical and completely lost it. The dr. did not give him any good chances of living a normal life or even surviving surgery. We had to put him to sleep. I was inconsolable for days and continue to cry daily. My whole family is devastated. The worst part is my surviving Maltese is looking everywhere for her best friend- it kills me to see her sniffing all over the house. I loved Rocky with all my heart. He was my first dog ever.

Sharing The Pain NEW
by: Jackie

I lost my almost 4 year old Maltese to the same thing. Angel was happy and running swimming in her pool and on July 24 2013 that night she was acting strange she could not walk or move it came on as fast as that. She was totally paralyzed I took her to our Vet she was very concerned she took an xray and told us Angels back had separated in three places. We were told she had intervertebral disk disease. Angel went through very intense VIM treatments and Lazar Treatments thousands of dollars of treatment to help her and keep her alive. After a week she was still suffering so badly I would lay with her on the floor she would cry in agony one night I layed next to her she was crying and I was crying she started licking the tears of my face she some how told me to end her pain and let her go. I took her the next day and had my little girl put to sleep one of the hardest things I had to do and I know I could never do again.I love and miss her so much and know exactly how you feel..I am sorry for your loss.My husband did buy me a new puppy a week after Angel passed and it has helped with the heaing process her name is Bella and she is beautiful and a handful.God must have known because Bella is Angel all over again same personality and everything

So sorry NEW

SO very sorry for your loss. I lost my wonderful boy, Pepe (Peppy) when he was 12 years old - just this past April. I still think of him every single day. The pain is still there, but not as deep as it was in the beginning. It was the hardest thing my wife and I had ever gone thru in our 40 years of marriage. Please take some joy in knowing how much Rocky loved you, and how much you loved him. These are our little angels on earth, and we will see them again.

broken heart made whole NEW
by: Anonymous

I know your pain all too well....I have had dogs all of my life and at 60, have lost many. It is heartwrenching.But none of my losses were like the one last year, when I lost my Cocker Morgan. I was devastated and went into a serious depression. I had said I would never get another dog, I just couldn't. But at my husbands insistance, I started looking at puppies. I started looking at another Cocker, but just couldn't go there. So I started looking at the Maltese and ended up falling in love with a Morkie. I had two other older dogs at home, and especially the Sheltie, had gone into a depression when the Cocker left us. When this little Morkie joined our family our lives changed. The Sheltie came alive again and found his new best friend. The two are inseperable. I found happiness again after feeling like I could never love another dog.....now I cannot imagine life without him, a feeling I thought I would never have again. So there is light at the end of the tunnel, and I recommend you take that leap of faith, and for your sake, and your other dogs sake....let another dog into your life and heart. You won't regret it.

RIP Rocky! NEW
by: Josie Rodis-Katzman

I am so very sorry for your loss of Rocky!! It is such a horrible thing to have your dog paralyzed.

We had our rottweiler Nicky and he ran up some stairs and later was unable to move his hind legs.(rotties are prone to hip dysplasia). We brought him to the vet and also went to see a specialist, he said that Nick had a 5% chance to make it through the surgery and even then he would not be able to walk. We also decided to let him go to the rainbow bridge, it was the hardest decision but was the best. I know your pain and also know that it will ease with time but will never be forgotten.

Please accept my prayers,and good thoughts!

Sincerely,

Josie

Finding Comfort - Giving Comfort NEW
by: Anonymous

I am so sorry for your loss! It is such a sad time for you and your furry friend. May you both find peace and comfort holding on to each other.
-------------------------------------------
Before humans die, they write their last Will & Testament, give their home & all they have, to those they leave behind. If, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I'd ask...

To a poor and lonely dog I'd give:

- My happy home.
- My bowl & cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys.
- The lap, which I loved so much.
- The hand that stroked my fur & the sweet voice which spoke my name.

I'd Will to a sad, scared lonely dog,the place I had in my human's loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

So, when I die, please do not say, "I will never have a pet again, for the loss and pain is more than I can stand."

Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has held no joy or hope and give MY place to HIM or HER.

This is the only thing I can give... The love I left behind.

Maltese NEW
by: Pammela

I had the same thing happen to my big Dane mix. It just happened and I was told it was a Cartiligious embolism. (I'm sure I just butchered the spelling of that.)I had to put him down at 3 years old. I was devastated. I then lost my beloved 13 year Maltese on Christmas Eve a few years later and was so distraught . I know the pain of losing dogs. It does get better but you still have the memories that make your heart flutter and brings a tear to your eye on occasion.
Maybe your beloved will meet mine at The Rainbow Bridge and they'll be able to play. I know they will be waiting for us when we cross over. May you find strength at this very sad time. Bless you.

Missing George

by Margaret
(San Diego, CA)

My best friend "George" was a bundle of pure joy. He meant the world to me. He carried me through the toughest time in my life and I couldn't have made it without him. He taught me that the whole world was a potential friend. He always had me laughing and entertained any one who gave him a chance. We went everywhere together, and he would have crowds around him in stores as he would pretend he was dying just to get attention gagging and choking like the end was near. He would have 20 woman surrounding him and one would walk by and not notice and he would reach out and touch her to come and see his show. He was the most beautiful dog I have ever seen and he knew it. He even knew what I was dreaming. One night I dreamed that my arm was bleeding and he came over and licked the very spot. The most wonderful companion anyone could ever ask for.

I lost him 10 years ago. Amazingly enough I saw him materialize in my living room just a few months ago, there he was all fluffy and adorable looking at me just like the old days. Then he went grainy and was gone. I share this to all who suffer the loss of their pet. This tells me they are there waiting for us on the other side. They are still with us and we will be together again.

Maltese Passed Away - Pebbles

by Judy Gilbert
(North Babylon, NY)

Pebbles Gilbert

Pebbles Gilbert

Our sweet Pebbles passed away suddenly on Sunday April 14, 2013 she had no symptoms of anything, she was in heat and she was tired a lot, the vet told me that was normal when she was in heat, other than that she was always a normal, healthy, energetic little puppy. Her passing has left us confused, angry, devastated.

She was the life of our house, so full of life. We only had her for 6 yrs and I feel cheated that she was taken away from me so soon. We have her little mate Bambam he is the quiet one, I'm so afraid now that something will happen to him, it hurt soooo much not having her home playing, been the princess that she was. The pain is so immense. My husband and I miss our baby so much.

Susie passed April 2012
by: Lisa B

My sweet Susie was only 4 1/2 years old when she left me. My heart was broken, and I still cry when I think or talk about her. She had been my little white shadow through a divorce, and could feel my sorrow. We shared many walks in the park, and everyone knew her by name. She met no strangers. I took Susie to the vet 3 times in 10 days with siezure type symptoms. He put her on 2 meds, but they only got worse. She died in my arms on a Sunday night, and I can honestly say, "I am a better person for the love of this sweet Maltese who was with me all the time." I have just now gotten to the point that I want another pet. I have another Maltese that will be ready to leave the "mom" in a few weeks. I look forward to having another "baby girl" in my life. She will be named Lucy. Susie never heard anything but "baby talk" from me.....and Lucy will too. The Maltese breed is the best ever!!!

Hugs and Prayers
by: Anonymous

My heart aches for you, your family, and Bambam. I know your pain from experience, although my losses were not Maltese dogs. I do now have a three year old Maltese (my first) named Holly. I've had her since she was three months old, and she is my baby girl. I adore her. Just from having her and learning how amazing Malteses are, I'm certain I'll always have a Maltese in my life.

You might want to keep an eye on Bambam. He will grieve for a long time, too. When our elderly dog Max (a mixed breed) died two years ago, Holly grieved deeply. I found a rescue Yorkie on Petfinder.com about a month later, and she has become Holly's constant companion. Each has been so good for the other. I love my little girls so much!

As horrible as it is to lose them in any manner, when it happens quickly, it can be kind of a blessing to both them and you, to be honest. I believe that we will be with our beloved pets again when we leave this life and move on to Heaven. Until then, the love and memories will sustain you, and eventually you'll smile again. This separation from her is not permanent. Hold on to that. It helps. I'll remember you and your loved ones, including Bambam, in my prayers.

sorry for your loss

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. My maltese, Mimzy, was the light of our lives for two years (we rescued her shortly before her 1st birthday). She, too, was playful and affectionate, and loved to dress up. She passed suddenly, too, with no explanation. It will be two years ago this month and it still hurts. I sympathize with you and know how hard this is to go through.

Losing a friend is always difficult, but when is so young it makes it worse. I had my Maltese Prince for 16 years, he was everything to me. It has been 7 years already and still hurts like yesterday. But keeps me going the great memories we shared, I still feel him near me. I know that one day we will together again for ever.

Again sorry for your loss.

So sorry
by: Gunners Mom forever

I am so sorry you lost your little one. We lost our Maltese/Bichon, Gunner, last December in a similar way. He was 7 and passed in the night after what appeared to be a heart attack. We took him to an all night Vet and they did a sonogram and found a mass on his adrenal gland. They believe a rush of adrenilan would have caused a heart attack. They said it is not anything that can be detected so just love and cherish every day with your little guy.
We have adopted another Bichon+ and he is helping to fill the empty spot but he is not Gunner.

My regards

I feel so badly for you. My Lucy, a 7 year old Maltese, passed away last month. The vet told me she had a collapsed trachea and she was being treated for that. However, her death was so sudden, I believe she also had undiagnosed heart problems. They are a wonderful, loving breed of dog. My daughter gave me a wind chime to remind me of Lucy. My thoughts are with you.

Feel your pain
by: Anonymous

Sorry for the loss of your baby girl! We had male Maltese, Duffy, who was 17 years old when he passed. We just could not sleep at night without him in bed with us. We started searching for another Maltese. We found a baby girl & named her Trixie. She will be 9 in Sept. We got another baby girl, Lacey almost 3 years ago & she is a Maltipoo.

In Jan. of this year we took Trixie in for an ear infection. After the vet examined her he found mammary gland tumors. Thank God they were not cancer. They did have to be removed...when he removed them he found she had Pyometra. It was like she was in heat again. He spayed her while she was under for the tumors. The pyometra would have killed her had the uterus burst. I will never again have a female dog thinking I will breed her and not get her spayed when she is young like we did with Lacey.

I know your dog cannot be replaced.

It was 2 weeks after Duffy's death, which was from liver problems, that we found our Trixie.

So sorry for your loss. I know the pain you live with, as I had 2 Maltese of my own that I have lost and miss tremendously. Falcon and Lacey were just 9 years old when I lost them. Just know Pebbles is in Heaven waiting for you. I know she has found lots of doggies to play with, so don't worry about her. Even though she was only with you a short time, she gave you love that you needed. Spoil your other Maltese rotten cause they need that. God Bless you!

Missing My Maltese Mix Twinkle

by Jackie Bolden
(North Carolina )

Twinkle was brought home when she was just 6 weeks old. I loved her from day one. She was a gorgeous Maltese and Pekingese mix. She was pure white and had a liter of puppies with a male dog of the same breed. They were so adorable! She was a good mom aswell. She would follow me around my house and it didn't bother me one bit. She loved to cuddle and was a lap dog. Even though she was older she still loved to play. when I lost her she was five years old. She ran away from home which she had before but had always made it back home and this time she didn't. I miss my baby :(

Memories of My Maltese Dog Brutus
April 19, 2000 - December 01, 2012

Brutus was the greatest little Maltese dog in the world to me, it's like his personality was made for me. Brutus bit everyone who entered my home he never wanted anyone near me. He was spoiled rotten and he knew it. Brutus was kind enough to let me live in my home, it was his castle not mine and that was okay.

Brutus was one of a kind, Discipline wasn't his thing. My Maltese did what he wanted to do, whenever he wanted to. I use to love to call him and he would look at me, look away and look at me again as if to say I heard you but Ill come when I'm ready :)

When we would go for a walk I always laughed when all these other dogs would get all excited and want Brutus's attention but he would just ignore them as if they didn't exist, when walking with Brutus he always acted as if only him and I existed in this world and no one else.

Brutus would always snuggle next to me never leaving my side. I can take Brutus anywhere with me and he would just sit in my lap and observe his surroundings. People would always comment how disciplined he was and I use to reply if only you knew lol. I love him and miss him so much. He was my confidant, companion and best friend! My heart is broken :*(

I miss you so much, my four-legged friend
I ask myself each day, if the pain will ever end
Your loss is so hard, for one person to bear
Because we were a team, an inseparable pair

You were by my side, when I got up each day
You were there each night, when I got home
Waiting so patiently, for hugs and play

You always knew, if I was having a bad day
So you'd snuggle up close, and try to get me to play. If that didn't work, you'd put your head in my lap. Then make yourself comfortable, and take a nap

One way or another, you would brighten my day
Like only you could, you had a special way
You gave me a lifetime, of memories to hold
Through all the years ahead, till I am gray and old.

I promise I'll see you, again one day
When we'll be together again, to go run and play
Your loss is a cross, I will just have to bear
Because you and I know, we were an inseparable pair.

Thank you everyone NEW
by: Stephanie

Wow thank you everyone for your kind words, condolences and prayers. Brutus was my everything, my baby! I am still having a hard time going through my life without him, for such a little dog he had such a big presence. I especially miss the everyday little things about him.
Its funny, when I use to take him to the groomers and come home to an empty house I use to think God it sucks here without him its so quiet, and now its a permanent quiet that I hate, Oh how I wish he was still here with me. My life is so lonely without him. My heart breaks everyday. If I do get another dog in time it will definitely be a Maltese but it will NOT be a male. For there is only one male Maltese in my life and that is MY BRUTUS! No other can compare to or even come close to my Brutus. He was truly one a kind to me and he was all mine! My Sweet Baby Boy Brutus I loved him so much and I miss him everyday of my life :*(

Someday I will be joining you in sorrow. NEW
by: BlinkyWilson

I love a Maltie named Daye Tripper. He is eight yrs old and has been deemed a "Felony Biter" by my Criminal Justice friends as he bites everyone who comes near me too. He is spoiled and is my shadow. I thought rescuing a bonded pair of gurlz would help, but nope he only is more protective. I look at him and can not imagine drawing a breath without him in my life. My heart goes out to you and the many memories of Brutus. If you do not know, I would like to tell you about a Catholic Saint Named St. Roch. He is the Patron Saint of Dogs and his intercession has helped me on many occasions that I thought Tripper may have been taken away from me for biting and once when he was ill. St. Roch please speed Brutus' voyage across the Bridge and look over his human Mommy so she will return to the way she was when Brutus was curled up in her lap. Brutus would not want her so sad and maybe some day she will be ready to adopt a Brutus Jr. Best wishes, My Dear my prayers go out for you both

Maltese Memorial - Harley

by Susie
(Ft.Laud.,Fl)

I got my her Sweet Harley Girl Maltese puppy when she was 14 week old in Dec. 1998 and she has been by my side ever since. She crossed the rainbow bridge Dec. 30 2012.

She was the sweetest, smartest and cutest baby girl. I taught her to roll over and shake hands at 10 years old to prove to my husband you can teach old dogs new tricks. We traveled at least 2 times a year together she loved to fly as long as mommy was close by. Came to work with me for over 10 years the official greeter.

She out lasted 2 husbands and never left my side. When I was diagnosed with stage 3b cancer she became my emotional support and nurse. Traveling with me to MDAnderson for tests and treatment.
How lucky I was to know such unconditional love. I miss her every minute of evry day. The hole in my heart is as big as she was. I know the only way to fill it is with some more Maltese puppy love. No dog can ever take her place but I am capable of experiencing a new kind of love. I know with the sweet nature of a Maltese and humor that comes with it I will mend in time. She would want me to get another puppy and if I can rescue even better. Contact me if you can help fill this void in my heart. Namaste`,

My heart Goes out to you you... NEW
by: Shelley Horsley

I can't begin to express my deepest and most heartfelt sympathy for your loss. You lost a family member who was your loving little companion. I know that there is nothing that anyone can say or do to ease the ache in your heart but please try and remember that dogs don't know how long their their life will be. They live for each and every minute. You gave your sweet little Harley an unconditional love that was enthusiastically returned! You played with her, gave her fresh water and healthy food. She had a Mommy who let her know she had a family who loved her enough to stop whatever she was doing to play with her. You told her you loved her every single day and gave her the warmth and security of a home and family.
In return, she loved you back! She was always more than happy to listen intently if you had a bad day. If you left home for an hour, she was insane with excitement at the site of you! Harley also knew that you were doing the most loving and caring thing you could ever do for her in the end. You loved her so much that you allowed her to cross the Rainbow bridge.
I truly know in my heart that God who knows the number of feathers on each and every bird has a special place for our most loving and faithful companions. I too had to make that heartbreaking decision for my sweet little Maltese "Cee Cee".
She had stopped eating in the end. She had cancer and had become very confused. She had no longer recognized me in over 3 months. As I was saying my goodbyes, Cee Cee looked at me, wagged her tail and licked my face! I knew for crtain that she was in Gods hands. I promise you, your little Harley is happy and is waiting to be reunited with you someday.
Godbless you and your family. You will someday laugh and smile when you think of your sweet little girl. In the meantime you are in my prayers.
Hugs and love to you and your family,
Shelley

Lost Maltese Dog - Angel

by Jackie Britton
(Indiana)

My Angel

My Angel

My Angel


I lost my Maltese Shihtzu mix a month ago to Intervertebral Disc Disease she would have been 4 years old on July 23 2013. Her name is Angel and everyday is hard we miss her so much. Angel was my best friend. She was pure white looked like a full blooded Maltese except for her spotted pot belly. She was so smart loved everyone especially the grandkids.

Angel was jumping around playing like she always had and she just stopped and looked at me like mommy help me... all of a sudden she could not move she was paralyzed from the head down. It broke my heart I took her to our vet and after a week in the hospital going there every couple of hours to hand feed her and give her water through an eye dropper. VOM treatments, lazer treatments a couple thousand dollars later we had to put her down she was in pain and suffering. That was the hardest thing I had to do and she just looked at me as I lied my head on the table next to her because she couldn't pick her head up she licked my face and begged me to let her go she cried we cried together. She only weighed 9 pounds.

Angel was a gift from my husband 4 years ago for my birthday and I had just lost my mom to lung cancer that's where she got the name Angel for my mom. My birthday was July 28th and my husband brought home our new puppy hoping it would help my pain and help me heal faster. She could never take Angels place she was on in a million. My daughter wanted to name her Bella and I started calling her Bella Boo then I had to register her and wanted Angel to be remembered so she got the name Bella Boo's Guardian Angel. Angel is now watching over Bella and Me :)

She is loved very much.Bella is NOT allowed to jump off furniture or anything we put her up and take her down I am paranoid she will get that intervertebral disk disease which is what took Angel from us.Please be carful with your dogs this disease is horrible and our babies suffer fro it.

So very sorry NEW

I am truly sorry for your loss of Angel. your situation is very like the one that I had with my little Pepe, in that it came on so suddenly and unexpectedly.

Your description of the events that you encountered were so familiar to me and I completely understand the pain you felt and how hard it was to part with your little Angel. My wife and I have been married for 40 years both agreed that it was the most difficult thing we've ever had to do together. Will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.Hopefully the new puppy will help you over time. The new pups not a replacement for Angel as all dogs have their own special characteristics that you will come to love and appreciate. Best wishes.

paralysis NEW
by: Lori

I just lost my 7 year old maltese this week- I had him and his 5 year old sister in their crate while I was out- I returned after dinner and he was unable to move his back legs. I rushed him to the emergency hospital 45 minutes away and they told me he was paralyzed in his hind legs and had no pain or feeling at all. The dr. said the chances of him even surviving surgery was very low and that she didn't even recommend an MRI- we put him to sleep- it was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I have no idea what happened to him. My surviving Maltese seems to be OK and I am so sad for her...

I am so very very sorry for your loss of your little Angel. I can't even imagine how I would deal with a loss like this, and SO young!!

My little ChaChi will be 5 in October and to live life without him is not something I can't even wrap my head around. He is my life!!

I can't say I know how you feel cos I really don't so I won't go there, but I do know how your heart must ache!! I only know how I would feel if I lost my baby ChaChi and I'm really not sure I could bear it.

Prayers and strength to you, and just cherish all those precious memories that she gave you...maybe that will help you get thro it a little better and bring you some comfort.

Blessings,
Anne

Sorry for your loss NEW
by: Gina

I am soo sorry for your loss. They are are four legged children. My heart broke when I read your story. I too have been there when I had my shit zu who died at a young age. It has been 3 years. I still cry for her. She was my first. I now adopted Bella, half maltese and shitzu. She brings so much joy to the house. I love her too. But there is still that empty feeling for my Gigi. It has gotton easier for me since Bella came. I will pray for you for strength. Again....I am so sorry that you especially lost her at a young age.

Monroe/Gucci NEW
by: Anonymous

I had a maltese named Monroe, Monroe passed away at 3 years old and I was heartbroken, and I mean heartbroken! (still am) and my grandmother kept telling me to go to the store where I bought Monroe, and tell cindy the owner, after about 6 months of her persistance I went. The very first crib I came across there was the cutest little maltese I have ever seen, i picked him up and he licked my nose, I was instantly in love I approached Cindy with tears streaming down my face and asked how much is this puppy? She asked me if I liked the lil guy I said ABSOLUTELY Im in LOVE with him, she said, hes yours! I was shocked. Apparently my grandmother purchased a maltese over the phone with Cindy (shes in NC) and needed me to go pick him out, I called my grandmother sobbing and she said let me name him is all i want, so she picked out Gucci....8 years later he is the love of my life. That lil guy saved my life on more than one occasion and I owe him everything. Hes sooooooooooooo spoiled! <3

Hope your new doggie brings you as much as Gucci has for me!

My heart is broken for you....

I lost my Maltese a year ago and I miss her so. These dogs are the most loving little little creatures.

I hope Bella Boo brings you as much love and joy as Angel.

Goodbye to Kodie

by Robin
(Youngsville, NC)

Kodie

Kodie

KODIE was my middle child, all of my dogs are my children since my daughter is grown and no longer at home. Kodie had never had any health issues and during his checkup last year the vet told us he had a slight heart murmur.

On March 7, 2014 he was being groomed like he always does every 5 weeks by groomer that comes to our home and when the groomer brought him in the house and sat him down as usual I noticed he was looking straight up in air and acting like it was hard to breathe.

I immediately to him to vet and the swooped him up put him on oxygen when the doctor met with me he said he was critical, congestive heart failure. I was devastated so after an hour doctor said I could take and leave him in pet hospital overnight or carry him home. I did not want him to be with strangers and if it was his time then I definitely wanted him with those that loved him.

So I left the vet at 5:00 pm drove almost 15 minutes home picked him, up carried him in the house he looked up at me and took his last breathe. Did I mention he was only 8 years old.

I held him in my arms and both my husband and I cried for what seemed like hours.

We buried him in the backyard under a flowering bush and my grandsons participated in making a memorial as well as planting flowers in his honor.

Nothing can prepare you for this I have another Maltese that will be 16 this year and it won't be easy when the time comes for him either.

Thank you for listening!

Robin

Robin,
What a cutie he was!! I am sure that you gave him a fabulous home and that he had a good life with you and your family. Think of all the joy he brought you and smile about it. If he's anything like my Maltese Teddy he would want you to be happy. Life, just a great big circle.........
Here's to time helping you get past this difficult period in your life. May his memories bring you happiness and some relief.

Sad Goodbye To Kodie
by: John/Sparky

I am so sorry to learn of your loss. I wish I could find words of comfort to share. I know nothing can take away the lonliness, sorrow and emptiness of loosing Kodie. Sparky has been gone for well over a month now, I have not healed or recovered in any way. Each day is a struggle to endure without him.
May God bless you.
J.
