Marley, 1992-2007

This was the photo on our Christmas card last year. The inside read, "Marley Christmas."At 1:30 a.m. today we woke up to Marley having a massave seizure/stroke. By 2:30 a.m. we were at the vet and he was put to rest.It's so hard to not have him here with us. Marley was a good and layoal dog. He was a best friend. He is already missed so much.We love you, Marley.

Oh my heart breaks for you - what a sweetheart in his big ole antlers. I understand this tough time, I have been there and it's okay to feel bad as long as you need to. I used to watch the Animal Channel and cry, and surf Petfinder.com - these guys are our first children. Take care.

Jill ~ My thoughts are with you. I know how hard it is to loose a family member like Marley. They are like our first child and can never be replaced. Reading this brought me to tears. I am an animal lover through and through. I do absolutely love him in his antler's. What a wonderful fella.. I am so sorry. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Jill, please accept my heartfelt sympathies. Many of us know how great a void is left when these gentle creatures leave us. I like to think Marley has joined my Annie, Miss Tuna, and all those loving companions who have gone before, in a place of utter well being and love.

Sending you a big, comforting, hug.

Jill,
I am so sorry for your loss. We just got our first dog, Bill and he is already a huge part of our life. I can only imagine the sadness of losing such a dear friend after sharing a life with him for so many years. I'll be thinking of you and your family.

I am so sorry. Marley looks like he was a wonderful dog, and judging from your tone, he was very blessed to have been loved so much. God rest his soul.

Oh Jill, I am so sorry:( I understand the loss of a pet and know how hard it is. They mean the world to us and are there for us even when others aren't.

It sounds like he didn't suffer for which we need to be thankful for.

I'm crying with you...

Oh Jill, how very sad for you to lose your buddy, Marley. I'm sorry to hear of your loss and totally know how it feels from past experiences we've had. It's totally ok to be sad and miss him for as long as you need to. I still miss our Kitty we lost 4 years ago. Marley looks adorable in the antlers. I wish I could have met him. Sally

I'm so, so sorry. Last Friday, Sheeba [my dog] was diagnose with bone tumours, so this post is very significant to me. I'm thinking of you and your sweet Marley. x
