Thank you. Your words do comfort me.
lisamarie, I didn't know I could be so attached to a pet, this was not allowed in my family when I was growing up. But yes, you are so right! He was a member of our family, and the kindest of us all.
BowNessMonster and Queen Gwen, thank you for the hugs. I feel a little stronger now, and my dp has also let himself grieve and deal with the emotions.
polka123, I hope this was an accident. Baloo, tended to sneak into their backyard to play with their dogs, and sometimes one of their puppies would sneak into ours. We all fixed the fence several times, but the have a couple of big dogs that would just break it again.
He says that he found Baloo in the alley, during his morning jog or something like that. He didn't know whose dog it was so he wrapped it in a bag. He thought he looked like he was mauled by another animal.
My dp gave Baloo his last bath before the gentlemen came to pick him up for cremation. He saw no punctures, there was no blood. So we have no answers, just loss.
Well, we can still hear him around the house, and fell his presence. We will always miss him.
He was a mutant (20 lbs) Pomeranian, with a penchant for kissing, and the best charachter.
Sorry, I just wanted to thank you.
