R.I.P. My Sweet Bumble


To say that I am upset would be understating my emotion.  I have been around animals for years
and know all about loss.  However something this sudden is new to me and so difficult.
I know that all who read my blog realize how much I loved this dog.
She was a big sweet bright light to my day.
Her death was accidental and a complete shock.
I will miss her more than any words can state.


I know that many of you will want to know what happened....
She was accidentally run over in our yard by someone visiting our farm.

  20. Oh, I am so sorry, Jill. I know that this will make you cry (it does me each time I pass it on to someone), but it's true: "Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and speak of me often as if I were beside you...I loved you so...twas Heaven here with you."...:)JP

  29. Jill, I can so relate to your loss. I would very much like to shoulder some of the pain for you, but know in my heart that it can't be done.
    We lost our Maggie on September 27th of last year in the very same way. If or when you are feeling like talking about it I can only offer my understanding of your shock and sorrow and and my deepest sympathy for such a huge loss.
    I will miss your Bumble very much too. Take care.

  31. From one animal (dog) love to another. Although it does sound as if Bumble was more of a human part of your family. I know mine are.

    I am so sorry for your loss. May your memories of such a sweet creature ease some of the pain and sorrow.

    Luv u!!

  40. Got connected here through Coffee with a Canine and am so saddened by your loss of Bumble. It's always hard but such a sudden loss makes it even more difficult, I think. Try to hold on to the joy you shared with her--mourn the loss, cherish the life. Melinda and Jeeves

  41. Jill, I am just catching up with blog reading from some of my own losses. I am terribly saddened by the loss of Bumble. My heart aches for you. She was the most wonderful girl and brightened my day, too, each time I came to your blog. I'm glad her spirit is documented here and that I got to know her through your eyes. I know that she loved you and Zippy greatly and that nothing can take away love, it's always there, forever.
