Goose And Maverick - Together Again


Recommended Posts

I cannot believe that I am writing this. On March 26, 2016, Goose crossed due to a nerve sheath tumor that had been diagnosed 2 weeks earlier. Only 9. We finally got our new normal about a month later. Maverick celebrated his 10th birthday without his littermate and wingman Thursday. Everything looked good and he was a happy guy. Saturday morning, he was running in the yard with Fancy and his leg broke.


I am without words to do my boys justice. They were so bonded to each other and to us. Miss Fancypants and I have a whole lot of healing to do. She has never been an only before and it is not her.


Hug your hounds, please. I want my boys back, but I guess Goose needed Maverick more.

I'm so sorry. I can't even imagine what you are feeling. :(

Tears. We are so sorry for you and your family Cindy, but Goose needed his brother more as you said.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. It's so hard losing two so close together.

Oh Cindy...my heart is breaking for you, your kids and for Fancy.

Only we know what a small price we pay for the love we have received from our pets.

The sadness and loss, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given.

Remember all the good times...

{{Cindy}} In tears here. Littermates are so incredibly special. The only light is that your boys are together again. :inlove I am so sorry you are facing yet another new normal. Give yourself time. How blessed you all were to have shared your lives together. I am so very sorry :grouphug

So sorry. Both Miriam and I know how you feel. Roy works about 2 1/2 hours away and is only home on weekends. The quiet is deafening around here. Miriam does not do well as an only child either. She hasn't shown interest in cookies since we put Pogo down last week and I finally got her to eat tonight (wouldn't touch food for the last 2 days), it took scrambled eggs and homemade doggy stew.


Sending hugs. :grouphug

Oh how crushing! I'm so deeply sorry about your sudden and terribly untimely loss of Maverick.


Eventually, may happier memories of your beloved boys help fill the huge void left in your heart.


Our supportive thoughts are with you and Miss Fancypants as you find new, special ways to deepen your relationship together.


Godspeed Maverick, now forever bonded with brother Goose... until you all meet again.

Cindy, I'm so sorry for your loss. I never expected to see Mav's name on here. I truly feel he needed his brother. They are now together forever.

May you & Fancy find a new normal. Hugs to you both.


Fly fast & free, Maverick & Goose. We'll never forget you.
