Tomorrow it is two weeks since I lost my darling boy. How can one little puppy make such an impact on your life???
I didn't know it would be this hard. I have loved reading all your comments and it is very comforting to know so
many others feel as I do.

Bob Pavlock!

So nice to hear from you about my Barcley.

He helped usher me through a whole new phase of life.
Yes, our puppies are playing together at the Rainbow Bridge!

This is Bob Pavlock...yes...still in the saddle and practicing law in Howell Mi.

I’ve been a Labrador owner since dinosaurs walked the earth, and the pain of parting never gets easier.

I pray all is well with you, and was proud to see your accomplishments recognized in 2020 with that Women’s Business award. Looks like ISCG is rolling along quite beautifully.

Current Stats: 12 grandkids/2 great grandkids/and one fantastic spouse(Linda) who made it all happen.

Love you, girl.

I’m sure Barcley and our old labs are living it up in that Great Kennel in the Sky.

Here it is June 28. 2021 and It's like yesterday that Barcley was at the back door waiting for me. He was/is the love of my life.

...and that will never change, Billie Jo. Bless you!

Hi Sandra!

I love reading all the stories of all the puppies and their loving mommies and daddies.

If I can figure how to send you picture of my cousin's new puppy, Minnie labradoodle...

Still so missing my Barcley! Still hard to come home to such quiet house and not have him at the door greeting me.

Thanks for listening...
Billie Jo

Barcley lives in your heart Billie Jo. Of course you miss him. He was your whole life. You wouldn't be human if you didn't miss your beloved little dog.

Time will heal, but it doesn't heal quickly, does it? Time passes quickly but love remains. So, even though time heals your pain, your memories of Barcley remain and your love for him lives on.

Bless you, Billie Jo

Barcley
by: Billie Jo

Sandra, thanks for all your supportive notes.

I don't know how you have been able to go through loosing one of your animals so many times.
People are always asking if I am getting another doggie, and all I can respond is "I just don't know."

I have been a single woman for 37 years so Barcley was my man. There are two things I have always said to friends all the time I have had him. "The only man in my bed is Barcley!" and "I just want to outlive my dog." He was the BEST part of my life!

Thanks for listening!

33 Days Without Barcley
by: Sandra

All too well, I know the sound of silence, Billie Jo.

Animals have a living presence and spirit that fills the house and the world. When it's gone, you have to close your eyes in the silence to feel the beloved's presence again. It's still there, you can feel it, hear it and even see it if you can relax into the silence.

When you're alone, sit quietly. Try to turn your mind and your sorrow off for a few minutes. Close your eyes and and see Barcley. He will come to you.

See him, feel him, smell him...use all your senses.

His love for you is always there. Your heart beats with his heart beat. Feel it.

There is much love for you here. XXX

33 days gone is my Barcley boy!
by: Billie Jo

I talk about my boy to everyone I'm with.
My friends have been so understanding and supportive.

Barcley knew everyone on South Lake and many on North Lake too.

I figured out I lived longer with Barcley then anyone else including my parents!


The sound of silence in the house is deafening.
Best pet ever!!!

Time passes, Billie Jo.

Hearts heal, but that doesn't mean that you will ever forget your darling Barcley. He will live in your heart forever. Sometimes you will feel the sadness of losing him and other times your heart will burst with love for him.

It is hard to lose a beloved pet. That term..." It's only a dog ", is so meaningless. The words are so empty. Anyone who's ever lost a treasured pet knows that the pet is worth everything, and everything is lost with the loss of the pet. The hurt and sadness is overwhelming in it's magnitude.

We carry on of course, and time heals as I say, and the love remains while the loss recedes slowly as time passes.

Two weeks have passed since Barcley left you. Where does the time go? All those precious years spent with Barcley sound like a long time, but seems like a short time now, doesn't it.

Bless you, Billie Jo.
