MILO





Milo. 9/23/2003---5/7/2019







Please, please watch this video.  I simply can't share my emotions right now but I think you, my friends, will know and understand if you listen and watch.

Love to all of you for your support and kind words over these last 18 months.

Taking a little break.

May you receive many comforting hugs in these intense grieving days. The cost of loving is high, though you’d never wish to give up the time you enjoyed Milo in your life. Sending love and understanding the need to step back. Take very good care of yourself.

Losing our pets is heartbreaking. Those of us with beloved pets know your sorrow.

Theresa said...

Sending you a big 'ole hug! I am so sorry that your sweet Milo isn't with you physically, but Milo will forever be in your heart and memories! Love you

Jeanie said...

What a beautiful piece of music. I'm so deeply sorry. Few things are harder than saying goodbye to such a long, loving companion. I know your heart is breaking and I understand. Be gentle with yourself during this hard time.

Unsteady is one of my favorite songs. I am so very sorry for your loss. Milo really and truly was a tough little guy and he loved you so much. Sending you lots of love and hugs of comfort.

Stacey said...

I'm so sorry, Jane!! Sending you love and hugs from Texas. I understand.

CJ said...

Jane, I am so very sorry. I know how much you loved dear little Milo, and I've told you before how lucky you both were to have each other. You looked after him so well, he couldn't have had a better life. I'm sending you a cyber hug from across the ocean. CJ xx

Heartbreaking . . . sad and so sorry . . .
I must say . . . you gave Milo a great life, plus an extra eighteen months . . .
Happy you had these extra months together.
Feel the joy . . . may it come back to you.
The love of our pets is like no other . . .
Caring about you Jane.

I am so sorry to hear about Milo's passing. What a great little dog and companion for you!
Our dog, Duke, was put down yesterday. He fought a brave battle against lymphoma. He was only 5 yrs. old. Our vet was so upset. He said that in his 30 yrs. of practice that virtually nothing has been done about treating cancer in dogs. He also said that he is seeing more of it and in younger dogs, too.
I am glad that you are taking a break. This is time needed for your healing.

Oh My..........I cannot watch the video yet for I lost my babygirl on May 8..one day after your sweet Milo. And I've had her since 2000. She was my best friend, my soul sistah. But why am I telling you this? You completely know. I have cried for the past two days and cannot walk thru a room without missing her. I, quite frankly, do not know how I'm going to get over this.
The strange thing is that your post was right beside mine on Preppy Empty Nester's blog roll. Your name is Jane. Mine is Janey. Maybe that tells me that little Milo and ms sophiejane are playing together now!!! I hope so.

Chris K in Wisconsin said...

Jane, I am so very sorry for your loss. We just lost one of our pups a week ago. The tears haven't stopped yet. Take care....

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

I'm so sorry, Jane, to hear about your beloved Milo. Anyone who has ever had a pet understands the depth of your grief. Sending you love and hugs.

Gypsy Heart said...

I am so very sorry. I lost my boy 2 years ago and I still miss him terribly. They are our precious family members and, IMHO, the most beautiful example of unconditional love that we will experience here on earth. It doesn't matter how long we've had them, it's never long enough. Take as much time as you need, everyone's path is different. May God hold you close and give you strength and peace.
Much love,
Pat

There’s nothing as joyful as the love of our pets. It’s one of life’s treasures. And there’s nothing like the pain of watching them falter, knowing our time together is short.

I hope you feel the support and love of your blog friends Jane. We’re all holding on to you. ❤️

Junkchiccottage said...

I am so sorry Jane. I have been where you are and it is heart wrenching. Please know I understand that pain and am keeping you in my prayers. So sorry.
Big Hug,
Kris

Oh honey!! I'm so sorry to hear this! These past couple of years have been so hard on Milo and all of you who loved him. I know you are more than "just a little unsteady"!! I can only say that I've lost an animal that we had when our kids were young, and be was like our third child, and the kid's sibling! He was so loving and so loved. I know youall did absolutely everything for Milo that could possibly be done, and loved him with everything you had. So, I'm praying that after awhile, the hurt will lessen, and you will be able to smile at all the memories!
The song is perfect -- I hadn't heard it. There's a song called "Supermarket Flowers", by Ed Sheeren that reminds me of the early morning that my Mama died, and so much of it reminds me of her and there's a line,.."Hallelujah, you were an angel in the shape of my mum." I know there's an angel in your heart perfectly in the shape of Milo that will always be there! Sending love to you, Jane!! Bless you!!

I said a prayer . I asked God to bring comfort and peace to your heart

I know your heart is broken. So sorry to hear that Milo has passed. I lost a my dog that was a part of our family for 16 years. We were all devastated. You are in my prayers.

Kit said...

Hi Jane - It is such an awful feeling to say goodbye. The world just seems like one big sad place these days. I'm so glad that you are taking some time to catch your breath. Big hugs all around you. xx Nancy

Stan and Jody Gabara said...

Jane, we lost our lab, Maggie last year. It was a very hard time for us. We never thought we'd get another dog. Going to a lab rescue we found our new dog, Nori. She is our first adopted dog. She definitely makes us happy now. Thinking of you at this hard time. Love, Jody

Maggie said...

So, so sorry. I still miss the dog of my heart who passed 6.5 years ago. These fur family members ARE truly family.

Dearest Jane, I am so so sorry for your loss my friend. Milo had a fantastic life and was so loved. You can't ask for more than that. Bless your heart, I am thinking of you.

Oh I'm so sorry sweet friend. I know it's a hard time for you right now. Sending you lots of hugs, Diane

Mary said...

So sorry to be late here with condolences Jane - just now catching up.
I know Milo was a good friend and will be greatly missed. Thankfully he had many years with his wonderful family. Hope you and A are
managing - life often throws us curves and all we can do is muddle along for a while - brighter days are ahead I'm certain.
Warm hugs - Mary & Bob xx

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

Oh my, Jane. sending you hugs + kisses from Oregon. Hope you can feel them ♥♥♥♥

Elizabeth@ Pine Cones and Acorns said...

Jane, I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet Milo. It is so hard to loose our pets because they are not just little fluffs of fur but sweet little souls that take over our hearts and lives.

Rita C at Panoply said...

Dear Jane,
I'm sad for you and your buddy Milo's passing. He was your friend, your companion, and you were his. He will be waiting for you at some point at that rainbow bridge, but until then, he will be frolicking among fields of flowers and endless balls being chased in a happy place. Maybe he'll meet my Coco.
Take as long as you need to. It takes time. I've been away for a long time with my downsizing, and am just now beginning to breathe and catch up.
XO,
Rita

I know first hand there are no words that will take this kind of pain away but please know you have a community of people surrounding you with prayers and thinking of you daily. Some days you'll feel like you can handle things like a boss while other days you'll feel like it's all you can do to crawl out of bed. The loss of a loved one is tough and it's heartbreaking to think of you going though this. Take as much time as you need, treat yourself with copious amounts of grace and know that you were a good mom. Milo was a treasure that can never be replaced and his love for you will always be boundless. You will get through this. Sending you big hugs, CoCo

We all knew it was coming but I know how hard it is loosing Milo, he was such a wonderful part of your life...a loyal friend and companion for so many years You are in my thoughts.

Dewena said...

Jane, I'm so very sorry to read this. I always had a special spot in my heart for him after losing our little Milo in 2017. Our little one and his twin Otis would both have been 15 on Monday and it was such a hard day for me. I miss them so much and I know you will your Milo for a long long time. Forever.

You tried so hard to give him the best days he could have to the very end.

Please take care and give yourself space to mourn, they so are worth it.

Sending a hug to you,
Dewena

Jane so sorry to read this. Our Beau is now 8 1/2 and our previous lab lived to be 14. Nothing harder than losing your best friend. We waited too long to get another dog. I would highly recommend it does help with the pain.

I am so sorry. It is devastating to lose a beloved pet. Milo was so very loved by you and your family and what a life he had! You will miss him until you meet again someday. Hugs to you.
