Misty In Mourning!

Hi Poor Misty is so lonely we often find him cuddled up to Jasper's casket He licks it and cuddles up with him. He often just stands looking into space even when we go out for walks he will stand and just stare into the distance. Its heartbreaking I think he Misty%203rd%20Mar%202010%20(17)picks up on my sadness and emptiness too he is such a beautiful little boy and he is so sad to watch. Linda Dunn Edwards

Linda this is such a sad looking boy but it might help if you put the casket out of sight  take away their old toys and bedding,  buy new different toys and soft bedding for Misty.  Misty needs help to move on and be encouraged to enjoy life once again. Try new activities, how about taking him to agility classes, all dogs find this fun, or maybe throwing games with a new frisbee. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we see a photo of Misty as happy as he looked in the BTA 2010 calendar.

Ohhhh, poor boy (and mum...)
Would a new baby-sister or brother help you both??? Hint hint....

It always amazes mehow sensitive these little dogs are, you can see everything in their eyes. Mine are miserable if they dont see their mates in the morning. good luck.

That's one sad dog-I agree with Lesley-help him to move on by not giving him the casket and letting him keep smelling the old bedding etc-dogs can really pine for their mates and I don't think this is helping him at all.

I believe we have Mistey's brother 'Sidney Ruff Diamond' we can always pay a visit and see if Sidney can cheer him up.

Its not Sidneys brother, I have Mistys brother, 'T'.

Hi,

O Boy is it tough to loose one of these special people, when we lost Ruby it was terrible (She was the closest thing to a girl friend Ian has ever had) so I had to tread carefully because Jazz still a youngster was on his own for the first time, and as much as we love them we cannot take the place of the one they share a sniff with or relate to, when looking for a doggy companionship, so poor Jazz was looking for his aunty Ruby too. Then one day Ian made noises like perhaps Jazz would like a friend, the next day I phoned rescue "Sorry very rare we get young bitches into rescue" so we decided that perhaps a Beddly cross small lurcher would be good and again no success, then out of the blue Tony Waller called to say he had just had a call from a lady who had rescued a bitch off "death row" at her local pound The dog had just a couple of hours to go to destruction, this was a Monday, Tuesday she was here and the rest is History. Ian regrets not having a canine friend for Jazz sooner, because once Sapphire came it was so obvious just how lonely Jazz had been.
