My Faithful Friend


Zoe
Feb 1997 - June 24, 2010

The first time I laid eyes on you,
I knew right from the start,
that you were meant for me alone;
you put pawprints on my heart.

How have you been Martha, it's been a while and I'm looking forward to seeing you at Diane's this summer.

This photo of your sweet Zoe brought tears to my eyes. We had to put down our Max at the end of last Summer. He was 14 and looked very similar to Zoe. He was my best friend and I really miss having him around. My thoughts go out to you in dealing with your loss.

Take care,

Kathleen

I'm so feeling for you. That face. Pets just capture our hearts and it's so hard to lose them. I'm sure Zoe had a great life with you, just the best, and that's what I always have to tell myself when a pet moves on.

I just happened on your site and saw this beautiful old soul and want to tell you how sorry I am that you lost your friend. My little baby "Rocky" is 16 yrs. old and I know I will have to go through this too. God bless and hugs, Pearl

Martha, I'm so very sorry about the loss of your precious Zoe. What a beautiful girl she was. May God comfort you is my prayer.

My sweet Sissy (JRT) has been very sick and has been diagnosed with an enlarged heart.

Big TX Hugs,

Oh Martha...I am so sorry for your loss. Zoe was a true friend and family member. I understand your sorrow in losing her. Our Sara has been gone for 9 years now and I still miss her.

My heart is with you...
Hugs, Nancy

It is heartbreaking to lose somebody who has given you so much love during their life, I am so sorry. We lost our beautiful Bobbie and Harry a couple of years ago as well, and although we have the two bestest dogs in the world again ( how lucky are we ), I still think of those two every day. My two doggies are sending you big licks.

Oh Martha,

I'm so sorry to hear about Zoe. I know how much she meant to you. She was a real sweetie.

XO,

You know I loved Zoe and will miss our laughter when she shared her "special aromas" and generally getting underfoot in your workroom.

I'll miss her when I visit, barking at me through your front window and then her realizing "oh it's you, all is ok". She was a unique and sweet lady.

love to you,
Diane

So sorry to read this and know you have lost a special friend. It does break our heart to lose a pet. Take care.

So sorry about your sweet doggie . . . and what a touching poem.

Oh, I'm very sorry about Zoe. We have many wonderful pets, it is so sad that they live such a short while.

Denise said...

Martha, we were at your spring sale in your home and greeted by Zoe. I am so sorry for your loss. Our fur babies mean so much to us, don't they? Can't imagine the day without our Bella.
hugs to you.
