I'm so sorry for your loss - today I took my 11 yr old corgi to the vet, and although he is still with us.....his days are numbered. Isn't it sad that the animals that give us such joy have such short lives?

So sorry for your loss. Connor was such a special dog...and this post is a beautiful tribute.

Somewhere, I hope there's a soccer ball for Connor tonight!

Warmest regards,
Sue

Susan, So very sorry for your loss. Our pets become such a part of the family and leave such a void when they leave us. My thoughts are with you and Bruce this evening.

Oh Susan, I am so sorry for your loss. What a beautiful dog he was! I too have recently lost pets, including a cat who'd been in the family for 16.5 years. They bring so much joy into our households. I hope his memory always puts a smile on your face and brings you comfort.

Hi Bruce and Susan,
How sad to hear about Connor. He was mentioned in many of Bruce's blogs and the love for this little dog came shining through. Enjoy your memories of this wonderful pet and and know we are feeling your sadness at this very hard time. Connor lived a wonderful and happy life with two fantastic and loving owners. Both of us are thinking of you with love. Linda and Tom

I am so sorry for your loosing Connor - He looks like he was such a jolly little fellow. And as cute as he was as a puppy, he was a handsome guy as a dog.

Hi Susan - I know this is a belated post but I just wanted to add my condolences to the many lovely messages posted here.
Your tribute to Connor is wonderful and I love the pictures of him, what a wee character he was and such a loyal member of a lovely family. What a lucky fellow he was !

Connor was a beautiful boy. I lost my beautiful boy, Fergus, a Westie, on Sept 24, 2008. I'm so glad you have Calli to fill your hearts. We have Stuart, who is almost 5, and Aberdeen, 2, who fill our days with joy - and bark at the loom and chase stray balls of yarn!
