Oh I’m so sorry. This isn’t is so hard. <3

John Bellen

This is very hard for you, I know, but it seems that, in a way, Tiny was old before his time. Because of the congenital defects little dogs have, he was at the natural end of his life. It shouldn’t have been that way, but with him his allotted span was short. Everything was speeded up for Tiny, everything was accelerated. It’s why he had such a short time with you, but it’s why he loved so completely and swiftly.

Everything that you described told of a full and complete life, a life lived in a compressed amount of time. He made friends immediately, he learned the routines in his new home quickly, and he loved right away. Few of us humans, and not all animals, feel the concentrated joy of a complete life as fully as Tiny seemed to have. He didn’t have long; he may have felt time passing more rapidly for him than it does for others, and he knew he had to enjoy his days and nights as much as he could. Thanks to you and your family, he did just that.

Tiny’s was a short life, but a full life, a life without regrets except that it was over too soon. What a glorious life he had. Godspeed, Tiny.

Ginny& the Fur Family

I agree with every word John wrote. I know how the heart hurts. You and your family gave Tiny love-the best gift of all in this world. Fare well sweet tiny - We wish you to cross the Rainbow bridge -go to a better place -but turn back and remember those who loved you so dearly. Gone but never Forgotten -Love never dies.

We are so sorry to hear this sad sad news. When a fur moves into your heart saying goodbye, in such a difficult way no less, is so hard. We send you purrs and prayers

I am so sorry, Chrystal. Each loss is hard but some do truly break your heart. Some animals just have a way of taking part of your soul with them.

Who knows what it was that killed him. Maybe he had been on the brink for a long, long time. Just remember this; he died as happy as any dog could be, so deeply loved and cared for. You gave him that extraordinary gift at the cost of breaking your own heart.

Oh my goodness, I could never have said it as well as John did! What beautiful words and sentiments. The only thing I can add, Chrystal, and I've said this to you hundreds of times, it feels like....what a lucky dog Tiny was to have lived, even if just a short time, in the Parker household. How fortunate any animal would be to live, and end his life, in your loving arms. You will see Tiny at the Rainbow Bridge, and he will be healthy and healed; that is my firm belief. Lots of hugs and love to you and your family.

That is so sad. I am sorry. XO

Mary McNeil

I know these are cliches but "If love could have saved you, you never would have died." And no matter how long you have them with you, it is never long enough. Fly free sweet Tiny

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties

Oh Chrystal. I cannot tell you how sorry I am. You did not need this tragedy. Tiny looks like he was a wonderful heart puppy and I'm heartbroken for you at his loss. Sending prayers and hugs
