|Oh Ginny, I am so sorry! He was such a beautiful boy and I am so glad you had so many years of joy together. I always loved seeing pictures of him with Ty. My heart goes out to you.|
|OH I am soooo sorry. hugs to you.|
|Aweeeeeeeeeee... I'm so sorry I definitely felt like he was part of my own family since we got to know him for so many years.|
|I am so so sorry for your loss. I am glad he was able to live a long and happy life with you.|
|You know how sorry we are. I'm going to miss the old man, too.|
|I really feel like I knew Tasker too... I've been thinking about him (and you) a lot since I found out...|
|Ginny, my sincere condolences to you and Doug. You can take pride that Tasker had a good life with a good family. I hope your heart stops hurting soon.|
|Oh, I'm so sorry. How I loved when you shared him with us......he was indeed a special dog and no doubt has left a giant hole in your heart. Good bye Tasker........|
and special to you, Ginny.
|Oh Ginny, I am so sorry. Like everyone else, I feel like I knew him. When I first joined the forum, I was so drawn to your posts--- and I always loved his name. Tasker. Big hugs to you and Doug.|
|So very sorry for your loss.|
|Ginny, I am so very sorry about Tasker.|
As many have already stated it was such a pleasure to hear of his adventures with Ty. I missed hearing of him the last couple of years.
|Oh Ginny I'm so sad to hear this. Tasker was extra special, and I know he will be deeply missed.|
|I'm going to miss the stories on Tasker, hugs ginny at this sad time, gone but never forgotton a special man who shared so much with you over such a long time, I know you will miss him terribly but he has left you with the most wonderfull memories that will flow on forever.|
Farewell dear tasker, another guardian angel has entered heaven.
I'm so sorry.
|Oh Ginny, I'm so sorry about Tasker, my heart is broken over his passing. I too felt like I knew him all these years. I remember his 11th birthday or perhaps it was his 12th where you spoke of:while happy he had an anniversary it also made him another year older. I never forgot your words as it hit home for me that all our guys age and yet we wish we had them forever. We do in some ways...in our memories and our hearts.|
I know you and your family are grieving over the loss of this super extra special one ...You and I smiled as I often referred to him as the Gary Grant of the forum. His charisma and gentleness came through so much on your post and his photos. He will be dearly missed by many.
Hugs to you
|I'm so sorry to hear that. I always loved looking at his picture in your avatar.|
|Ughhhh.. I'm so, so deeply sorry. We are thinking of you and sending healing vibes your way|
You know how sorry we are. I'm going to miss the old man, too.
I second what Jill said, RIP Tasker, you were one well loved boy and will be missed greatly.
|I'm very sorry to hear this.|
|Ginny...I am so sorry!!|
|So very sorry for your loss.|
|Tasker was indeed a very special boy. You and I shared our concerns about both him and Drezzie because of their hips. Just the fact that Tasker made it to over 14 yrs is a testament to how much he loved his family, and how he knew how much he was loved in return. Now he and Drez (and all the other angels at the Rainbow Bridge) can run and play, pain-free.|
|So sorry that you have to endure this separation. Tasker touched so many lives with his wit and wisdom. The forum will not be the same without him.|
Goodbye for now sweet boy!
|So sorry to hear about Tasker. He was a beautiful fun guy. Hugs to you|
|so very sorry to hear about your loss of your best buddy ..|
|Oh, Ginny, we are so sorry to hear about Tasker. He was a wonderful dog, and will be sorely missed.|
Laurie and Oscar
|I've been thinking about you and Tasker all weekend, I hope today is a little better for you. Tasker was a lucky boy who was loved every day of his life and he will always be a part of you|
|Ginny I am so sorry about the passing of Tasker...he was a sheepie who really touched my heart through the years. I'm going to really miss hearing the stories about him. RIP sweet gentle sheepie man.|
|I am saddened by and I'm very sorry for your loss of Tasker. He was an excellent firedog.|
I am so sorry to hear of Tasker passing..
What a wonderful boy he was.
|Ginny: So sorry to hear of your loss. Sometimes there just are no words that are right for the time. Think of all the happy times.|
|I am so sorry. I too feel like I knew Tasker from your stories.|
He will be missed by all of us.
|Oh, Ginny. I'm so very sad to hear of your loss of Tasker. He was such a wonderful boy. We always know the end will arrive but we never want to believe it will really happen. |
All our love to you!
|Tasker was always one of my favorite forum dogs, couldn't ask for a sweeter Sheepie. So sorry for your loss, he will be very missed.|
|I am so very sorry for your loss. He sounds like a wonderful sheepie. Hugs to you and all your family be kind to yourself and remember the happy times xx|
I too felt as if I knew tasker You had such great stories. I am so sorry you lost your beloved boy. I know there is a hugh hole in your heart. Time will help ease the pain but not the memories.
I am so sorry to hear about Tasker. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
|So sorry to hear of Tasker's passing May all your memories of him help you through this difficult time.|
|me heart goes out to you.|
|So sorry to hear about Tasker Ginny. It was wonderful he had such a long life, but I know it is never long enough.|
|I'm so very sorry, Ginny. |
Wishing you peace.
|Thank you for all your very kind words. I just don't seem to be able to wrap my head around the fact that he is gone. Every morning when I put my feet on the ground I expect him to be there, at night when my pager goes off I still crawl out the end of the bed so as not to disturb him. We brought his ashes home this week. It was very sad.|
|So sorry to hear this news. I still have Daisy's ashes on the bedside table beside my bed - well that's where she used to sleep (not on the table obviously!) so I think that's where she's happiest. Time doesn't exactly heal but it does make it easier to bear and the happy memories start to take over the feeling of loss eventually. Thinking of you|

Michele posted our condolences a few days ago but I could not help but add a minor thought at this point. While it certainly was no joyous occassion, bringing Martin Zephram's ashes home last year actually gave me the first degree of comfort I had in that terrible week. While the crematorium did a professional and courteous job I was relieved that I was finally able to bring him home with at least a degree of the respect and honour he so deserved and I was significantly calmed that his body would now be able to rest undisturbed and unviolated in the comfort of his own home with those who love him nearby. I made sure he had a nice urn - I couldn't have him placed in the standard silk bag - and Michele found a lovely trophy display case for it. Our first son now occupies a prominant and respected place in our living room where I can talk to him and often feel his spirit near me.
It still hurts and it always will, but at least he is properly cared for. I pray that you and your family will receive the same comfort and company from Tasker's body being home as I have. Know also that you and he will be re-united both in spirit and eventually body.
Take care and may the happy memories of his life, so well loved and fully lived, quickly replace your current feelings of loss and loneliness.
|Thank you Carl, you are so right. Tasker was returned to me in a lovely wooden box with a carved lid. I was a little panicked when I went to get him over exactly what I was picking up (a bag full of ashes would have been more than I could bear). But the box is lovely and made me change my original plan to bury him. |
There was some comfort that first night in having him there in the living room with us, knowing he was home where he belonged. I had spent days with my brain full of horrible images of where he was and what they were doing with him. So I do think I will create a Tasker shelf with his bowl and collar and ashes and a picture where I can talk to him. Hew was for many years my best confidant and I hope some how he is still listening.
|I think a Tasker shelf is a wonderful idea and I know he is still, and always will be, listening to yoy|
|Another Angel in Heaven. So Sorry.|

That's what I did for my Oliver when he passed over 3 years ago. His ashes sit next to a window box frame of photos in his favorite spots and with family. The photos surround a beautiful copy of the rainbow bridge that reminded me that he was OK. I still talk to him after all this time.
|I am so sorry........my heart bleeds for you|
|I'm so sorry!|
|I don't know how I missed this- I am so sorry|
|Thank you. It's been over a month and the pain is still as raw and horrible as it was that first day.|

Well, it will be for a long time. But eventually the good times & the funny things that happened over the lifetime of your dog will take over. That's what your dog would want. They hope we remember them for all the good & happy things that happened while they were here with us. If it didn't hurt so much now, it would mean they hadn't made much of an impression on your life. Obviously your dog did what he was put on earth to do.....he made you love not only him but the breed itself.
|So sorry for your heart break...you will always miss him and some of the "sharpness" will dull with time but you will always feel the loss...know you are being thought of as you go manage through your pain...|
|I lost Zak in December and I have both Stella and Atlas now, but I think of him everyday and still the sadness is sometimes overwhelming.|
His ashes is on my dresser- 2 feet from where he slept and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Thinking of you.
|We are so sorry for your loss.|
|Hugs to you at this sad sad time:(|
|I am sorry for your loss|
