Cozy Jackson

The worst part about loving something or someone is that every life ends.  I had to put Cozy Jackson to sleep while the twins were at school.  Sobbed the whole way to the vet because I sensed what was wrong wasn’t fixable.  Cried the whole time there.  Cried the whole ride home.

Oh, I’m sorry. It is so hard to lose a pet and harder still to explain it to young children (even those as advanced as yours).

Oh, lovey, I’m so sorry. Pets are definitely good people. Big hugs.

*I meant mature (not advanced). Sorry.

Oh no… I’m so sorry. 🙁 There’s nothing worse than having to make that choice. Please let us know how it goes with the kids… so heartbreaking.

Oh no! I am so sorry. I know much you loved Cozy Jackson by how you wrote about him. I am so sorry for your loss, and for the twins. How hard to lose their fish and now Cozy Jackson. Hugs. Cozy was a lucky dude to get to be loved by such an awesome family.

Oh dear. 🙁 So soon after the fish too. He was such a cute little guy. (((Hugs))) to you & the twins.

It shows how loved Cozy Jackson was that on the other side of the earth, sitting in a cafe by the Pacific having her morning coffee, a woman opened her feed, saw the post title, and thought “oh good, I love hearing about Cozy Jackson.”.

I’m so sorry for you and the twins. Losing a pet is part of life, but awfully sad.

14 Sharon { 04.03.13 at 6:13 pm }

Oh no. Sorry, Mel.

15 Justine { 04.03.13 at 6:22 pm }

Oh, Mel. Sending you and the kids a huge, huge hug, and holding you all in my heart tonight. Cozy was so loved, and I know that he will be so missed.

16 FrozenOJ { 04.03.13 at 6:38 pm }

Oh no I’m so sorry! Losing a pet is always hard, especially one as loved as Cozy Jackson and so soon after the fish. 🙁

17 Tiara { 04.03.13 at 6:51 pm }

I am so so sorry, Mel. Your poor kids have had to deal with a lot of pet deaths lately. I’m so very sory for that.

18 Stupid Stork { 04.03.13 at 7:31 pm }

So sorry to hear that. 🙁

19 Rebecca Hill { 04.03.13 at 9:11 pm }

I’m sorry to hear this. I know our dog’s days are coming to an end (he’s quite old and his health is quickly declining). I dread my boys experiencing that loss. Sending you good thoughts as you navigate this with your kiddos.

20 Katherine A { 04.03.13 at 10:11 pm }

So sorry to hear this. Losing pets is so hard. Thinking of you and the kids.

I am so sorry Mel. (((HUGS))) Sending lots of love, thoughts, prayers and comfort to you and your family.

25 marwil { 04.04.13 at 5:09 am }

Oh no, I remember how heartbroken I was when my first pet hamster died. So sorry you had to put him down.

26 Twangy { 04.04.13 at 8:48 am }

Also really sorry. Grief is the tough price of love, as you say, but we still must love. It’s really sad. xx

27 Amy Elaine { 04.04.13 at 3:46 pm }

Oh, no!!! I am so, so sorry. 🙁
