I'm just so, so sorry for your loss. I hope your heart heals soon. Sounds like he was an amazing creature and you two were both lucky to share such a special relationship with each other.

We would love to see more photos if you're up to sharing more of him with us. I also have a large, giant, royal, whatever you want to call it them, standard who resembles your boy so it would be great to see more of your big guy!

Default And another...

He was the best at posing when bribed either with treats or extra love. He was always good at anything with extra love. Treats he could always find a way of stealing himself. To keep him thin because of the Hip Dysplasia, I had to be a treat and food Nazi. But I like to think that kept his quality of life high for almost 13 years.

This made me cry. I am so sorry. I would look for that Blue Pup. Another dog to love will help you heal better than anything else. So sorry for your loss.

You filled him with love, there's no sweeter food or treat than that. He had the most endearing expression. I hope you carry that in your mind's eye. You really did a masterful job of managing his HD and giving him a wonderfully full life. I wish it could have been longer, but that is always the wish for our dear poodles, isn't it? You're amazing for finding the energy and strength to share Charley's memory and photos with us now. That reassures me in time you will be fine, and someday again "with poodle."

Thank you for sharing the picture of Charley. He was a very handsome boy. There is not a greater tribute to our fur babies than to be loved like he was. When we lost our toy, I truely thought my heart would break. I know many of us have been there at some point. We got a spoo puppy that could not have been more different. We went from a six pound, black and tan toy to a 45 pound white spoo. I would hold her as a baby and cry because I missed Patches so much I thought I would never get over it and then feel guilty because I wanted to love Lexi for being Lexi. One day very soon after we got her I realized that this little white ball of fluff had truely healed my heart. I pray that you find another to share your life and to help heal your heart.

Thank you Chagall's Mom....had to take some xanax yesterday and one pill today but it only keeps me from crawling out of my skin....my eyes are swollen and thank goodness I'm on a big village lot or someone would have called the police by now from all my wailing. Posting on here is the only respite I have had in 26 hours.

I had a poodle by proxy when I was just arrived from Rome, Italy. She was a beautiful big standard silver color named Olivia. She was the poodle of my mother's ex-husband girlfriend (All were artists and very good friends). Olivia I swore as a 5 yr old was my step sister. She understood commands like "olivia, get my handbag" "Olivia, get your leash" or even "Olivia go get Lo and bring her here" No one could convince me that she was a dog and not just a strange mute human of some kind. I have never forgotten her. She died when our friend moved to Taos and Olivia was killed by a hit and run driver when she was crossing at the crosswalk. Yes, she was able to do that. She knew where to cross the street. Taos was a very small community in the early 60's.
Anyway, the point of this was that I knew that this was a really special breed and I just waited, and waited until I felt the moment was right to find my heart treasure. And I did. Charley was perhaps not a wonder dog like Olivia, but he had the biggest heart, soul and intelligence I have ever experienced anywhere. Olivia would have loved him.
Thank you my new friends for listening to this rather crazed with sadness person. Writing today here has helped me a bit and given my eyes a rest from crying. I just do not know how I will cope without him.
