Barley its been a year now since your passing. Yes there is still sadness, But there is also gratitude that God lent you to me. And I'll always feel blessed that you were a big part of my life. Thank you God for this gift you have lent to me. Until we meet again my good friend I'll miss you.

Sorry to hear of your loss. Barley sure was beautiful.
I know exactly what you mean when you thank God for the gift He loaned you. It's how I feel - how we all feel about our Q. Here's his tribute page

Ten weeks exactly as I type... 10 weeks of pure hell.


You and I and a lot of people hope and pray we'll see our fur children someday. Going on without them is awful and difficult.


Take care and stay well.

Thank you. I guess you know Cockers are special.
I am sorry to hear of your loss. I know of the sadness. There are still times I feel that way But I remind myself he was only on loan. I know he wouldn't want me to be sad (he had a happy go lucky personality). And I know we will meet again.

The page jumped, sorry about that - I just wanted to drop in and remember you and beautiful Barley as I am remembering my beautiful Q...


On loan - an apt way of looking at our furry little ones. And how I am and my husband is looking forward to seeing our 'angel in a fur coat again' someday...


...but for now it's so difficult slogging through this world without our Q.


We all were blessed to be owned by such remarkable cockers, weren't we!!

Carol-Anne yes we were blessed. And for that I have been grateful. I made a post in the "pet loss support" forum titled "Eternal love" I know something like this would be to soon for you. While Barley was irreplaceable and will always have that special place in my heart. I have been blessed again by another special angel.

Well my friend it has been another year. I still go to your garden where you rest every morning to say a prayer of gratitude. You have been in my thoughts everyday.
Alot of things have been changing very rapidly. While I would like to get another "Dillon" to take care of, I cannot at this time. I will be moving soon and have to leave almost everything behind. The only regrets of have on this is I will have to leave your garden. I will leave it in God's hands so I know it will be fine. And I will always carry you in my heart.
I know you are in a better place now with Dillon and all the others that have left. And when It is my time to be called back we will be together once again.
Miss you my Friend....

Hi Ray - I think about you and your two beautiful Cockers - they really are magic!


When you move, and if you want to talk, use the e-mail address I provided or sent me a message on the Board.


I know it still hurts enormously to be without Barley and Dillon, I can sense it in your words, and I can understand it in your heart. My husband and I still feel this way about our beautiful Q...


We too look forward to a future when we'll all be together, and at that time you can introduce your beloved fur kids to me and my hubby, and we'll introduce our beloved Q and Cole... and we can meet up with our other fur kids we've had the pleasure of loving over the years, and finally the world will be at peace in a way that will restore our hearts and minds.


I hope that your move goes well, that you make good friends and that God blesses you with His finest blessings.


You come across as a warm person... and I wish you well.


In cyber-friendship,


Carol

Carol-Ann
thank you unfortuntly I no longer have your E-mail address. Due to change of plans I am staying where I am for now. As I took in Dillon because of what Barley has given me. I decided to take in another rescue. His name was Isaih He was so badly beaten by his previous owner he lost his eye. I decided to change his name to Jobe. And plan on giving him the same love that Barley and Dillon received. I am going to try to post a link to Jobe's pictures but I am not sure if it will work. Carol-Ann my E-mail address is rays89@aol.com

Barley my friend
It has been 3 years since you have been called home. You may be gone but you are still in my heart and always will be, Yes there is sadness but there is also gratitude that God has allowed me this gift on loan Barley you life has changed me. From being a selfish angry person. To someone who is more compasionate. This is because of the unconditional love you have given me. You are resposible for who I am today. The love you have given I have been giving back. First I adopted Dillon a rescue Who would have been euthenised due to his anger from prior abuse. But I showed him the same love you have given me and his anger left him. It was unfortunete I was only able to have him a short time.
So I adopted another "specail needs" Cocker I named Job. He was severely abused that he should have been scarred. But yet he bears none he even reminds me of you. A lady who also had lost a Cocker named Charlie (Charlie also touched her soul) is also resposible for me getting Job. I am grateful for that. Job is so special he made the cover of a calendar on rescue dogs! This is the link show my precious Job http://www.dogsdeservebetter.org/2009calendar.html
Lord I do want to express my gratitude for lending me Barley. Barley thank you for being a part of my life, and making me the person of whom I am. Today a candle is burning in your memory on where you were laid to rest. While you may be gone your spirit will live inside me through eternity.
Until we meet again my Friend
Ray
PS Job is not a special needs Cocker anymore but a special one indeed

Happy 17th Birthday my friend. The time goes fast. I still visit your resting place every morning and say a prayer of gratitude for the gift that God has lent me. There will be a time when we will cross paths again my good friend.

Rays, Thank you so much for your kind words. I keep tellimg myself that someone needed him in heaven. Its been a little over a week since he left and it has been tough. They love unconditionally and no matter how long we have them they touch our hearts in a special way. (I'm not sure if you got this reply I'm new to this)...You are truly a special person!

Barley
Its been 4 years since you have been called home. A candle burns brightly next to your resting place today, And thoughts of you shall be with me all day as it has been everyday. Not just thoughts of sadness but also of gratitude. That the Lord has let me such an Angel who was there during my darkest hours. You are still visited every morning. Some much has happened yet stayed the same since your passing. I am on my second rescue named Job. Because I have to give back the unconditional love you have given me. Barley I truly do miss you and promise you will never be forgotten. Until we meet again my friend you will always be in my heart.

Barley
You would have turned 18 years old today. I lit a candle at your resting place. While I do not spend as much time there as I want to. You are still in my thoughts every day. They are not thoughts of sadness but thoughts of gratitude that the lord lent me such a beautiful loving "angel" You brought me so much joy and comfort when you were in my care. And always be viewed as my best friend and more than just a dog. I loved you very much Barley. Yes you are missed but I know when its my time to be called home. We will be together again Smile
Miss ya Buddy
