  • StellaGirl,

    I am so sorry for your the loss of your father, you will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    I'm sure that your B is mourning also and I hope someone has some good words to give you to help her also.

  • Thanks. It has been a bad year for me. I just found my father 2 years ago ., so i feel like i had no time w/ him.

  • StellaGirl,

    So sorry to hear about your dad… hugs......

  • My deepest sympathies, StellaGirl. How sad, but great you had these last 2 years with each other.

  • I am so sorry.

  • That's so sad, I am sorry.:(

  • StellaGirl…I'm very sorry for your loss. It is a hard time of year to lose someone (my mother died at Christmas time a few years ago)...my heart goes out to you. Kim

  • I am so sorry for your loss.

    Animals mourn and just like people it is a little different for each animal. Give her opportunities to do the things she enjoys, try to keep her schedule as normal as possible, and keep an eye on her. Especially watch that she does eat something, you may have to use some extra special food. My mom lost her 15 year old lab this year and both her basenji boys stopped eating, she said that there was about 2 weeks where she was pretty much hand feeding them so they would eat. Then they started to bounce back.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. Your dog may not only notice that your father is missing but may also sense your sadness. Dogs are so perceptive. I am so glad you found your father before he was lost for good. Sending you a hug…


  • Sorry to hear about your Dad Stellagirl - at least you had some time with him. I'm sure your little beastie is mourning also - maybe leave an old shirt of your Dad's in the dog's bed. My prayers and love to you.

  • ((big hugs)) for you and your B….. Sorry for your loss.

  • What a sad day for you, and especially over the Christmas holidays. I pray that you and your babies will hold onto your memories no matter how short of time you had together. Better late than never, I always try to remember. Lots of hugs and prayers are going your way! Sahara send her hugs to you as well.

  • My sincerest sympathies for the loss of your Dad. ((Hugs)) to you.

  • ((HUGS)) to you StellaGirl. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Please know that our thoughts & prayers are with you & your loved one & your little B of course.

  • I'm so sorry for you loss.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. As for your basenji…they are really sensitive creatures, and I have seen them be very "moved" at the death of another basenji in our home, so being there with your Dad when he died may have really affected her emotions. Give her time, TLC, and other wise act as normal as you can.
