Comments on: Remembering Frugal Hound http://www.frugalwoods.com/2018/01/22/remembering-frugal-hound/ Financial independence and simple living Wed, 21 Feb 2018 09:01:41 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.5 By: Kristi http://www.frugalwoods.com/2018/01/22/remembering-frugal-hound/#comment-92186 Tue, 20 Feb 2018 17:16:56 +0000 http://www.frugalwoods.com/?p=16502#comment-92186 Though I only knew FH through your blog posts, I immediately connected with you & with FH as my husband and I do a lot of work with dog rescue. We have experienced the loss of a few pups we loved very dearly, an experience that cannot be put into words – and those were not even our “family dog” that we raised and shared years of memories with (Lord knows I dread the day when it is our beloved Sadie). Each time my heart has been so broken; but, somehow, another dog comes into the rescue and fills the cracks and pieces of my heart to make it whole again.

I am so saddened by your loss, I shed a few tears in Gracie’s memory as I read this. I am sorry that Gracie’s transition to what’s next was so tragic, but I can appreciate your thoughts on how that is comforting in some ways. Thank you for sharing Gracie with your readers, may fond memories bring you warmth and comfort during this difficult time.

I was just looking at your expense report for Nov – will you be returning your stock pile of dog food to Costco? they usually take returns on almost anything.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Pets are so precious. My husband and I lost our rescue dog Champ 1.5 years ago and it still hurts. Champ, like Gracie simply isn’t replaceable. I hope we will come around I adopting or fostering but until then we have found peace in donating his items to our local shelter to folks who really appreciated the items , volunteering to walk shelter dogs, organizing a neighborhood donation drive or towels/blankets and sponsoring a senior dog who was just as hopeless as our Champy when I found him at the high-kill shelter. RIP Gracie <3

Thank you for sharing your grief. (I really should have known better than to read this post at the office…I’m holding back tears at my desk…) When I had to put my very beloved cat down over a year ago I remember the vet telling me that she hears regret from so many owners who put off making the ultimate decision. Those owners who wanted just a little more time, or to try one more treatment and how much they very much regretted putting their cat or dog through the pain just for a few more days of companionship. In the end it is so hard, but it is a loving and generous decision. Sending you and your family lots of healing love.

That’s what pets are, after all, not just animals, but family. All the best to you and your lovely family in this difficult time.

Thank you for sharing your emotion in a calm and measured manner. It seems likely that another rescue hound will need you as much as you need him or her. I appreciate your honesty with Babywoods and look forward to hearing about the pending arrival of your next child.

I have loved sharing in your pictues and stories of FH; her contentment seemed to radiate outwards from the page. You gave her a fab life and she most definately knew it!
