  13. dear sonia and family,

    i know how sad you must be right now. you'll miss flora very much for a while, and no doubt cry buckets. then one day, she'll become a happy and treasured memory and you'll be able to smile again thinking about the years you shared. we never forget our doggie friends. that's just the way it is.

    until then, much love and peace xox

  15. Dear Sonia. I am so sorry to hear of Flora's passing. She brought you so much joy and friendship, and by association she brought the same to me. I loved seeing photos of Flora at your home. She was a happy girl whose loss will be deeply felt. I will remember her, she passed on my birthday. God Bless, Ken

  16. Farewell Flora.
    Your Sonia and Carlos will miss you terribly.
    It's so sad our doggie friends can not live longer lives.
    But I'm sure she had a wonderfully happy life with you and we cannot ask for more for our dearest friends.

  17. Oh Sonia, oh Sonia.

    My one piece of good news is that now Flora will meet my dog Bru, and he'll show her where to find all the meadows and beaches and soft pillows in heaven.

  22. Dear Sonia,
    I'm so very sorry I did not hear of your sad loss sooner.

  24. Oh Sonia,
    I'm so sorry you've lost your beautiful Flora! She was lucky to have shared her life with you, and I know you must miss her very much. When they go, it is like some spirit of the house goes with them.

  25. I am so sorry that you lost your beautiful Flora. She was obviously well loved and cared for.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sonia, I know how terrible it is to lose a beloved pet, and I know how much Flora meant to you and your family. Rest easy, knowing that she lived a very good life with you and you served each other well.

  27. Ah Sonia nem acreditei quando li.
    A Flora tão presente já fazia parte ve-la por aqui
    Lembro-me que quando iniciava por esse universo de blogs e deparei com fotos suas ou de sua filha (nao lembro bem) o que mais me marcou foi o passeio pela estrada com a Flora por perto. Fiquei logo encantada por ela e pelas fotos.
    Mas todo ser vivente nasce e morre, é uma certeza que temos, portanto precisamos estar sempre preparados também pra perder nossos amigos animais - esse amor continuará .
    Imagino o quanto voce sentiu Sonia e deixo meu abraço de carinho.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh no! Oh dear, I am terribly sorry, Sonia. Oh my heart. Please take comfort in your memories. I know your arms must feel empty.

    xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ah Sonia, triste mesmo, pois me lembro de algumas fotos dela aqui no blog quando você saía para passear.

    Nós temos tanto carinho por um aminal e nos afeicoamos a ele por tudo que passamos junto com eles que a dor da partida é grande em nosso peito.

    Um grande abraco e a dor vai passar, mas a saudade e boa recordacoes vao ficar.

  30. Hello Sonia!

    I am with you for your sorry and understand it perfect. It took four years , when I was able to think a new dog after our 14 years old dog died. Now this "new2 dog is 10 years old and I don`t even want to think her dying. she has been very healthy and I hope she will be still many years.
    Our president`s cat died this week and it was a big new in newspapers :) It made me smile, it was somehow so touching in the middle of financial and political news.

    I wish you rewarding weekend anyway Sonia.

  31. Sonia querida, eu estou em férias e por isso talvez, não tenha visto...

    Que triste e sei bem o que estás sentindo...Eles nos dão tanta alegria, não cobram nada, só carinho...

    Pena, mas ele foi tri bem cuidadinha e teve todo amor!

    Fica bem, beijos,chica

  32. Oh Sonia, thank you for your kind words about me losing my dog. It's so sad and hard to lose them! I know you miss Flora so very much, but she had a wonderful life with you. I try to hold onto the joy that we had and the memories of our beloved pets.

    I'm so sorry for your loss!!

  33. Sonia, I hope you have a good weekend, in spite of the great sadness.
    All the best

  34. Lovely post about Flora. I think we do have "heart" dogs -- Wolfgang was mine -- we love each of our pets but one will simply reach out and latch onto our hearts in a way that no other does. Wolfie died three dogs ago, but I still miss him every hour of every day. I'm very sure that no living thing will ever love me the way that wolfie did and I was blessed to have in my life. I'm glad to have seen a picture of Flora

    ReplyDelete
  35. Stopping by to say "Hello" my dear......These are such sweet pictures of your sweet dear Flora....My heart goes out to you, dear Sonia---I think of you every day and send you healing prayers filled with understanding. I know your heart aches....

  39. I'm so sorry for your loss Sonia. It is the most difficult part of being an owner...having to deal with losing our precious friends.

    Rupert would have loved to romp with Flora. She looks like a happy and dear dog. I am certain she knew she was loved very much.

    Take good care, K

  56. Dearest Sonia,
    looking at your images again, they still bring tears to my eyes. Such a sweet friend you lost!
    Warm hugs and much love,
    Merisi

    (It seems like yesterday that I found your blog - I remember the moment to this day. How many years?)

  57. Dear Sonia, "sunflower" in Italian is "girasole" (similar to your language).
    Have a good weekend

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh, your Flora looks so sweet. The expression on her face does remind me of Katie. I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to lose our furry family members who have been a part of our lives - it always seems to me that they just don't live long enough! I lost my beloved Jessie at age 13 and 1 month, and even though she died in 2004, I still think of her often. Hugs to you, from someone who understands!

  59. Sonia, só hoje tomei coragem para ler seu post. Faz já 7 anos que Pepino, nosso honorável viralatas que nos acompanhou por 12 anos, também se foi. E até agora me engasgo quando revejo suas fotos e conversamos sobre suas peripécias , como adorar bombom, "falar" com a gente e tomar solzinho na janela do meu quarto. Então, não tenho o que falar sobre a ida de Flora para um lugar que almejo se reúnam todos os nossos afetos caninos e felinos e que um dia voltaremos a nos rever.
