From Sarah McKerrigan...

My blog entry is short this month. I've lost my furry best friend.

Worf sat beside me while I wrote, soothing me with his slow snores, giving my fingers something to scratch between typing, guarding me from the mailman. He was my first and only dog. We adopted him from a pug rescue when he was four. I never knew how much a part of our family he would become, nor how much his loss would sadden me.

I hope everyone reading this will give their pets a nice scratch for Worf today.

Thank you.

Oh Sarah.. How sad to have lost your best friend.

Hugs to you. I'll be giving my dogs an extra scratch for Worf. It's very hard losing a pet. I remember the dogs I've lost with love and fondness too.

Maybe a Worf will pop up in one of your books one day?

I am so, so sorry.

Dogs become another family member and it is so very hard to lose them.

I'm so sorry about your loss. I know how deeply it hurts. I love my dogs with all my heart. In this sad time though, remember that you gave him a wonderful life, and he gave you unconditional love in return. You were both blessed.

Sarah, I'm so sorry. Such sweet souls do have a way of weaving their way into your heart to stay. What a blessing to have had him in your life. And how blessed for him to have you. God bless.

I received this from a friend when I lost my beloved Husky Rusty.


There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the bridge, there is a land full of
meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again.Those who were maimed are made whole again. They play all day with each other.

There is only one thing missing. They are not with their special person who loves them on this earth. So each day they run and play, until one day comes when one suddenly looks up. The nose twitches, the ears are up, the eyes are staring and this one suddenly runs from the group.

You have been seen. And when you and your special one meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again and again. And you look once again into the loving eyes of your pet.

Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be parted.

Oh, what a cutie! And the dog, too.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost a cat this summer (literally, lost him) and I still think of him every day. These sweet, irreplaceable beasts have a way of staying with us, even when they're gone.

Take care of yourself--it's a hard ordeal.

I am so sorry for your loss. I cried for months when we lost our puppy and thought I'd never get over him and then came Sam. He is my 'baby', confidant and friend.

Sorry for your loss, Sarah. Losing a beloved pet is tough to get through. (((((hugs))))

No words can soothe the pain, but I'm truly sorry for your loss. Unless you've lost a beloved pet, you have no idea the void it leaves in your life. It's been nearly two years since we lost our 14 year old "labsky" (half lab/half husky). He was a beautiful eighty pound, blue-eyed guy. He was a Humane Society foundling.

I only lasted about a week before I was back at the Humane Society looking for a dog who needed love as much as I needed a dog. There is no replacing Worf, but there may be a new friend out there who'll bring you love in it's own special way.

I am very sorry...My wrott Georgette died some time ago but I had her forever. But she lived a good 15 or so years. I send you my love.
