I've added more to the end-- dogs who have been loved and lost this year.   We were blessed to have had the chance to love each of them.  💕
I do this blog at the end of each year to honor those who have left us.  My heart goes out to each of you who has a special one here.   This year, I have four from our family included.  If you have a pet you want added to this, just put their picture is the comments, and I will add them.
These are not in order of when they left us, except for my Starlight-- she was our first loss this year and is so missed. ❤️⭐
 My beautiful Starlight-- left us in her sleep at 13 1/2.

 Our Pi, family dog, "Best Dog Ever"

And one more of my girl, Starlight
Sometimes, we have to let them go, sometimes, they leave us on their own, but they are missed deeply.
They will be loved forever. 
This was on an animal rescue site:

Our animals are our family, teachers, friends, sons, daughters and soul mates. They open our eyes to wonder and our hearts to unconditional love and eternal devotion. The amount of love they provide us, is rivaled only by the pain with their loss, but not for one moment would we trade in a second of that love. Their time on this earth is way too short and in the blink of an eye they go from younger than we are, to being older and wiser. Their journey ends sooner than ours, but it is only because they come to this earth already more enlightened and aware than we are. They are here to help us attain our destinies and to make this journey more fulfilling.
Letting go is the hardest and most excruciating thing to do but it is often the kindest thing and last gift we can give them.
They remain in every gust of wind, drop of rain, ray of sun and breath of air.
They whisper to us in the rustling of leaves, "we are still here and will never leave you".
We will see them again some day, until then they visit us in our hearts and dreams.
In the mean time, they run in the fields and chase the butterflies, free of the frailties and ailments of this earthbound existence. When we close our eyes, and call their names they will come running.
True love never dies.
Here are the ones I have added.  Thank you for sharing their beautiful faces with us.

Thank you Linda .... I know how sad this is for you to do and so sad for us to see and read but ... every dog was honoured for their love and devotion to us all.

I miss my Coco everyday and I know you all miss your fur kids too.

My family and I wish you all at Must Love Peke's the best for 2019 !

My hubby and I are staying home with Yum Yum ... doing a special dinner in this heat of ours and popping a Champagne cork when the New Year chimes in.

I look back at each of the loses of a beautiful and beloved Fur Baby with tears in my eyes as I page down through their names and images but knowing that they went across the loving Rainbow Bridge where there is no pain, hunger or danger.

Each may have come to us as a result of past dangers in every form but with us they learned about love, plenty of food, water and a safe place to lay their head when it comes time to rest.

We owe so very much to rescuers who have busy lives but makes room for just one more Fur Child who needs a loving hand stretched toward them. Love seeing so many who reach out and give a helping hand to rescuers in different ways.

These babies are the binding that keeps us going as human beings when there's so much we can't fix in this world.

Thank you Linda for this beautiful memory of those we lost this year.
