I'm so sorry for your loss - Twinks looks like a fabulous little chap. Dogs give us nothing but love and it's heartbreaking when we have to say goodbye.

Mary Ann

So sorry to hear of your loss.
I know how hard it is to say good-bye to our beloved pups. Hope your sadness soon turns to warm memories of little Twink.
Hugs, Mary Ann in Denmark


Losing a dog is so difficult, I'm so sorry for your loss. Don't worry about getting your creativity back, it will come.

I love your work!

While I was very happy to see that you had posted, I was really sad to read that your beloved Twinks had passed. Please accept my cyber-hug and know that I'm truly sorry to hear of your loss.


Rest in peace, dear little Twinks.


I'm so sorry about Twinks. *hug*


I'm so sorry about your poor doggy. He was beautiful!


I'm so sorry to read about your dog, it's a big loss! At the same time I'm glad to see you're back on your blog! :)


loosing a dog is the sadest thing. The only cure I know of is a knew little 4 legged friend. You will never forget your old friend, but the new bundel of love will help ease the pain. You have all my sympathie in this sadest of all sad times. Please take care of you.


Thoughts and prayers are with you! It's hard to lose such a great pet - but I know he'd want you to be happy. You'll get there - hang in there!!

I finally found your website again after all our moves just to read this sad post. I am so sorry and saddened to hear about twinks! I know you gave him the best life a god could enjoy! You always talked with much emotions about him.


I am so sorry to hear about Twinks. Losing a pet is so hard. But you made the best choice you could for him. *hugs*

What a cutie, I'm so sorry. May your memories grow sweeter as time softens the loss.


That is so so sad. I hope you are feeling better soon and that your creativity returns. Seeing a new post from you made my morning, so I really hope you'll be writing more again soon.


Oh, how happy I was to see you pop up in my reader: "Brie is blogging!"

But then, how sad to hear the news of your loss. Your dear little Twinks; though I knew him not I considered him to be one of my "internet pets" and always enjoyed seeing pics of him. His tawny coat! His bright button eyes! So full of life and personality. That ice-cream pic is definitely my favorite.

Grief is a terrible thing; I hope you'll be spirited enough to blog soon, though. Even if not, check out my blog if you'd like a diversion: I've been doing a good bit of cross stitch lately and even blogging!



Hugs to you!


You sound like you've had a heartbreaking few months, no wonder you've needed to take some time out. I'm so sorry to hear that you've lost your lovely dog - Twinks was such a gorgous fluffy guy who always made me smile when I saw him in your blog posts. Thanks for sharing him with us all - it was great to know him through you and hopefully all your happy memories of him will help you through this time.


Oh no, I am so sorry! I feel absolutely heartbroken for you. *hug*


My dogs are my babies...and so I understand your pain. Hugs from Down Under



Brie, so sorry for your loss of Twinkle, a.k.a. the Intrepid Twinks. He who warned you of a gas leak and barked away home intruders also carried a trait of other Northern breed dogs: paper shredder! Who knew? I lost my Samoyed grrrl this year & she too once loved to tear and *eat* paper. It is like losing a child; even mum says so. Give yourself room to breathe, with no deadline for "better," as better only happens in its own good time. Adieu, notre ami renardien. Rest in peace.


So glad to have still seen him in October!


It is so sad when a beloved pet dies as they are so part of the family. I am sure you gave him a lovely life and remember the good times.


please take care and hope you find another tink...

I am so terribly sorry to hear of your loss. :'o( Twinks was a fantastic wee person. I'm sure you must miss him so much. I still miss my pom (Heather) who is gone for 13 or 14 years now. They are such bright spirits! You have left lasting memories in your amazing pomeranian pattern and many folks will have tiny remembrances of lovely Twinks. Sending you many healing thoughts.
