Lorenza....

(Remembering you... happy and alert)


My dearest Lorenza:

I want to thank to you to come into my life to enrich it.  You taught me to be patient, tolerant, compassionate, friendly and open to strangers.

You taught me that the simplest things are the ones that make us happier.

You were always a happy girl and you showed it that every moment. Even when you were sick your wagging tail spoke for you.

How to forget the way you sat in front of me and with a glance you let me know what you wanted. “Walkie time”…. “Meal time”…. “Play time”…. “Go to sleep time”…. “Open the door to let me enjoy the fresh air in my balcony”…

I will remember absolutely everything about you and I will keep in my heart the memories of each day we spent together…. Even the times when you made me change places on the big bed… 3 or 4 times every night.  You trained me very well… and I always obeyed you!

You came to me being sick…. and so you left.  I promised you I would take care of you and I want to believe I did it… until yesterday, when your small body had no more space for your big heart and I could not stand to see you suffering.

I made a decision for you based on all the love I have for you and I hope you understood it.

Run free of pain my girl.

Your mom who loved you more than herself.

. . . . . . . . . . . . .

I want to thank everyone of you who came to visit Lorenza during all these years and specially today.  Thanks a lot for all your love for my girl.  It means a lot to me and I appreciate your friendship.

Our hearts are breaking for you.
Lorenza was very special to us, one of our first blogging friends and Toby's girlfriend. She will be missed and every time Mona wears the little dress Lorenza's grandmother made we will think of her.

It's been 2 days since we first heard the sad news and I'm still in shock and don't want to believe our sweet friend has started her journey to the Bridge. This was such a beautiful tribute to her and she will always be remembered by all her loved her. Again, my deepest sympathy to you and to your family.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

Lorenza was and is much loved. thanks so much for sharing her with us.

I hope the wonderful memories you made together will provide you with some solace and help to lessen your grief in the days ahead.

Jake of Florida said...

We loved her --- and you -- and always will. You wrote a lovely tribute to her and I can only imagine the tears that flowed as you wrote it because that's what happened as I read it.

Our dogs give us so much -- not the least of which is a whole world of new caring friends.

Blessings!

Dear One,
You and our BELOVED Lorenza are a big part of our lives. We would see a new post from you and just LIGHT UP because they were always so filled with LOVE and FUN.
We recall so many of the things that you did JUST FOR LORENZA's Comfort.. Like Cutting you lovely long locks of hair... because Lorenza was afraid of the Hair Dryer..
And the time her Cool Pool needed to be replaced... and you had to WALK a LONG way to a store for a replacement... in 100+ degree weather.. and Carry the BIG NEW POOL the whole way back... Just for Little Lorenza.
And how PROUD and PRETTY Lorenza was to go on her walkies.. in one of your mother's beautiful new DRESSES.
We know that Lorenza KNEW how ADORED she was. From the First moment until the last.
We mourn along with you.
RUN FREE and FAST Little Lorenza... until we meet again.

Although so many of us have been down this path as you have, it is never easy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We will think fondly of Lorenza and all of you during this very difficult time.

It is very hard to write here without getting the laptop all wet with our tears. Lorenza was everyone's friend, and especially ours. You did the only thing you could for Lorenza and you did it out of love. Hard, but so caring.

So sad, this news! She was such a lovely little girl. I still miss my sweet Emmy Lou, but I can think of her and smile today. I have a new little guy, he looks just like Lorenza and though he will never take the place of any of my pets in heaven, he does fill a big part of my heart. Sending you a big hug!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

When we shared the news with our FB group, YOU were included in our comments as I just knew you would be devastated -

Thanks for this very special tribute post -

AND EVEN MORE THANKS for giving your special girl that best gift we as humans can give them when the time comes -

It comes with the biggest price for US - the hole in our hearts - but letting them go with dignity and love is one way we can repay them for the love, companionship, and lessons they gave and taught us -

And yes, it's not forever - it's just - for now -

Hugz From PAWSylvania,

I'm so very sad to hear that Lorenza is no longer with you. She was a very special girl. "No longer by your side but always in your heart". You and Lorenza helped me through many sad times when my precious Reuben was paralyzed, more than you'll ever know. I enjoyed your blog and photos so much. I will always remember you both. My sympathy to you and your family at this very difficult time.

Hugs and kisses,

Bocci said...

We are so very sorry for your loss, Lorenza's Mom. What a beautiful, sweet girl, that Lorenza. We loved your blog and so very much appreciated your support of our blog. We still miss you and Lorenza.

Brindusa Faur said...

OMG, I haven't been here for too long because of my rescue activity and now, getting back I write about Lorenza's departure. I am very very sorry. I remember she was our first furry friend when we just begun our blog.I can't believe she's gone. Remember back in 2009 when my oldest Lucy wrote you a letter? It was here: http://dashalovinganimals.blogspot.ro/2009_09_01_archive.html. It seems so far away that time. Now Lucy is 15, old, deaf with lots of grey hair. Her son Freddy is also old, but with 2 years younger than his mom. Even if we have 6 dogs in our family now, Lucy and Freddy are the first favorites and we thanks God for every day we can have them with us. It is very hard to loose your baby, I lost many rescued animals in these years and my heart broke for each them. But when is about your first doggy, emotions, feelings are much powerful.
What exactly happened to Lorenza? I remember she wasn't that old, wasn't she?
I am very sorry for you lost and I hope you was able to move forward. I lost my mum in March and it was a very hard 2 last years because of the "C" disease that took her life. Now I am trying to move on, looking forward.
I wish you all the best and dear Lorenza, I hope you run free now and happy over the rainbow bridge <3

C said...

am I the last to find out about this? 10 mos late....
ignorance was bliss.... all those unworn dog dresses...
I hope you get a new dog, but there will never be another L. :(

Oh my goodness. We had not been by in forever to visit. We are so very sorry sweet Lorenza had to go, but we are certain she has been having fun at the bridge. ((HUGS))

NoisomeOne said...

As a person who read your blog many years ago, it helped me through some rough times I had in my life. I sometimes get reminded of Lorenza and the blog you two had together. I hadn't stopped by for about a year, and was heartbroken for you after I came back to revisit your account and learned about the news after the fact. I didn't leave a comment back then, but remembered you two just right now and decided that I had to leave a comment this time. I'm really sorry for your loss, and I hope you're doing ok. Please take care.

Shelle Pennington said...

I am still sending you lots of love and happy thoughts of Lorenza. We miss you both. I hope you know your friends still think of her with great love and memories.

Después de mucho tiempo de no visitar los blogs amigos, hoy me encuentro con la triste noticia de que Lorenza ya no está con nosotros. Me impactó mucho y se me encogió el corazón. No tengo palabras para consolar a su mamá que estoy segura todavía la extraña y le hace falta. Pero ya descansa y algún día se reunirán de nuevo en un lugar donde ambas serán muy felices.
