Smudge is gone...

I haven't posted in a very long time.

That last time I posted was a year ago. At that time, Smudge was beginning to lose weight and was slowing down. It was not surprising given his age and his CRF.


His family is heartbroken to say that we set him free today at 2:22pm.

I wish this was a bad April Fool's Joke.

It isn't.


He is with his brother, Magoo and sister, Alyssa at the Rainbow Bridge.

I love you, buddy.

  29. We so miss your postings and the Stories that Dolce told. Now we are going to miss Smudge. I am so very sorry for your loss. There are no words of comfort that can ease an sad and aching heart. The emptiness will sit with you awhile until the slow ebbing of time helps to chisel away the sharpness of the ache making it duller. The memories will help soften the pain and they will sustain you throughout. What a long wonderful life Smudge led with you as his loving hooman. We celebrate the wonders and the beauty of that special bond. You may not know that I lost my Abby 233 days ago and it still sits very very heavy on my heart. She lead me to Annabelle who is a ruckus teenager, and then just this past Feb I lost Gracie too. Both suddenly and both very unexpectedly. I am grateful their decline was swift and over quickly for them, as for me, I am still grieving their loss. But time has helped ease the raw pain. I will keep you in my prayers.

  34. I'm so very sorry to hear about this but I'm also sure that Magoo and Alyssa were waitin' to re-unite with their dear and wonderful Smudge. One day, in the distant future, we will all be able to re-unite with our loved ones. Until then, they remain in our hearts, forever.

  36. We are so very sorry to hear that Smudge has crossed over. CRF isn't fun in the end. We have had a few with CRF, and they did fine for years with medications, and then fluids. But 16 is a good long life for a loved poodin. Many hugs and purrs and purrayers to you during this very difficult time.

  43. Smudge fought for a whole year. No one, cat or human, wins his last battle; at such a time, it really is not whether one wins or loses, it's how one plays the game. Smudge loved and was loved. That's an excellent way to play. Godspeed, Smudge.
