Wednesday’s Missing Post

There was no post yesterday and very few submitted comments approved for publication throughout the day.  My family and I were distracted dealing with the unexpected, but peaceful, death of a beloved family pet.  Ginger appeared in a previous “Feel Good Friday” video and was the kindest, gentlest, most empathetic, sweet-natured animal I have ever met.  My family has been exceedingly privileged to have been the caretakers of such a fine companion and we miss her very much.

To those few individuals who had the audacity to privately comment to me their presumptive suspicions of my engaging in nefarious reasons for not approving their comments in a timely fashion yesterday, I have relegated you to a fate worse than deletion of comment.   I have added you to the blog’s spam filter.  Deletion is for a moment but the spam filter is forever.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Our little furry ones have a way of becoming integral to our hearts and lives.

    While I’m certain Ginger will be missed, I’m also certain that you gave her enough happiness on Earth to make her miss Earth while she’s in doggy heaven.

    So sorry to hear about Ginger, it’s always tough to lose a member of the family. I remember her from the Snow Day video, she looked like she was having such a tremendous time out there.

    I’m so sorry for your loss, our furry friends are with us for far too brief a time, but the love we get from them lasts forever.

  • Tanya May 5, 2011, 8:55 pm

    I don’t comment often but I wanted to let you know how sorry I am for your loss. She is beautiful and always will be.

  • Talulah May 5, 2011, 8:59 pm

    I am so sorry for your loss. I hope over time memories of the good times your family shared with her will comfort you all.

    Im so sorry for your loss. Losing a pet is exactly like losing a family member because that’s what they become when they join your family. Lots of people dont understand that and that’s their loss. The loyal love of an animal is a beautiful thing to have.

    My comment for the royal wedding is still under moderation. I dont think it will be posted but I certainly dont think that’s a reason to to email and rant at admin.

    I hope your family makes it through this time of mourning in good health, mental and physical. The loss of those close to us takes an awful toll. Be well.

  • YWalkalone May 5, 2011, 11:09 pm

    I am not particularly sentimental, and even I can’t bear the thought of one of my two wonderful cats dying. I cannot imagine what you’re going through. Please accept my sincere condolences–I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Toni May 6, 2011, 12:00 am

    Wow–very sorry for your loss. Losing a furry friend can be unbelievably painful. Take care.

  • PrincessSimmi May 6, 2011, 12:24 am

    She’s beautiful. I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m sure all the other regulars will agree with me when I say if you need us, we’re here for you.

    May your beautiful puppy rest in peace.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. 🙁

    I know when my rabbit died after 5 years (the poor thing battled an autoimmune disease), I was absolutely devastated. I couldn’t take it in for ages – I was 14 and people said often, “It’s only a rabbit”, and, true, I’d only had her four years, which is nothing compared to the life span of, say, a dog or cat. But it was so deeply distressing to me at the time and to hear people so heartlessly cast her aside as “just a rabbit” hurt me to my core. 🙁

    Once again, Jeanne, I am so sorry for your loss and as for the idiots who judged you, there is an expression I love: Never assume. It makes an ass out of u and me.

    🙂 xxx

  • Vicky Lee May 6, 2011, 6:57 am

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I wish I had something more comforting to offer, but instead when I get home tonight, I will give my pet an extra scritch for Ginger. And maybe some treats.

  • majuba May 6, 2011, 7:32 am

    goodbye Ginger, I never knew you but its good to know that you had such a good life and were loved, and now missed, so well. You might not have featured in my life but you were special to someone. Hope your busy munching on the tastiest meaty bone ever, you deserve it!!

  • Insomniac May 6, 2011, 9:29 am

    So very, very sorry for your loss. They leave such a hole in your life when they go – and they have so little time on earth yet this does not hamper them in the least from the joy of living. They teach us so much, both while they are here, and after they are gone. I hope you and your family can find comfort in that.

  • Red Dog/Redlyn1 May 6, 2011, 9:52 am

    Please accept our condolences and tears.

    Forever in our hearts Ginger will be

    My deepest sympathies on the loss of your sweet little Ginger, Jeanne.

  • Julie Ann May 6, 2011, 11:21 am

    I am terribly sorry for your loss. Ginger sure seemed to be a true asset to your family. Our dog of 17 years passed last summer and I understand how you feel to an extent. Think of happy times with Ginger (memories during the holidays usually work best for me.) Take care and thank you for running such a lovely site.

  • Rosie May 6, 2011, 11:44 am

  • Allie May 6, 2011, 3:31 pm

    Awe, how adorable! What a face (and such a beautiful coat). Those eyes are the best proof I’ve seen that animals do have souls.

  • Wendy L May 6, 2011, 3:49 pm

    I’m so sorry. *hug* We lost our cat Sunday and have been taking it hard…you have my greatest sympathies.

  • Pam B May 6, 2011, 5:40 pm

    I really wish pets had a longer life-span….they are such special members of the family and do leave a hole when their gone. Their is a great Jimmy Stewart segment on a Johnny Carson Show where he reads a poem about his dog Beau. It’s on youtube if/when you feel up to watching – I cry good tears when I see it – Jimmy “got it” when it came to dogs!

  • NotCinderell May 6, 2011, 6:08 pm

    Sorry for the loss of your friend and oh my goodness at the responses to the not-approved blog comments. Do people really assume that you have nothing better to do?

  • Martha May 6, 2011, 6:24 pm

    What a beautiful dog, I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Kennedar May 6, 2011, 6:48 pm

  • Raines May 7, 2011, 12:00 am

    Sorry for your loss. I’ve been there before.
