Dale

I am so sorry to tell you that our beloved Dale passed away yesterday. He lived for about 14 years, which is a grand old age for a dog his size; we were fortunate to share 12+ of those years with him. Now we're left with a gaping Dale-sized hole in our hearts.

There's so much I want to say about Dale but I can't bring myself to type anything right now. But I do want to thank and hug each of you who sent Dale their love and best wishes through the years. This quirky and sweet dog brought laughter and joy to many people, some that he met and others that he never met and that's the best kind of legacy to leave behind.

Dale (1999-2013): You'll always live in our hearts

  38. What a loss. As always, a book or two come to mind. Consider either of these children’s books, which I’m sure you can find at your local library.
    “Dog Heaven” by Cynthia Rylant http://amzn.to/dOmUh
    “The Tenth Good Thing About Barney” by Judith Viorst http://amzn.to/ZsyJ6a
    Barney is a cat but it’s a wonderful story about helping a child or anyone deal with loss. It’s been a comfort to me on many occasions.

  64. This hurts .. Dale had been a part of me from the time I’ve been reading your blog more than 4 years now I think... He just meant so much to me, it was like having a virtual family member whom I always used to cuddle virtually whenever I read about him or saw his snaps ..

    It’s really difficult to type when tears roll down.
    I’m so sorry Nupur .. if this can mean so much to me I can’t imagine how much it means to you and V.
    Thanks to you for bringing him into my life ..hugs to all three of you, Will always miss you Dale, Love you !

  75. Hello Nupur

    While I'm sorry too that Dale won't be physically around for you to hug, but I believe that dog's never leave us completely, so there's no real 'dog heaven' concept for me. I think dogs stay around for our entire lives, so that we keep hearing their unsaid opinions about all we do - only we can't see their expression while they say them. They quit the mortal world only when we do and accompany us to heaven or hell (as the case may be). I feel that when dogs befriend us, their vow is "till even death does not do us apart".

    My dog died 30 years ago, but I still speak to him and of him every single day.

    Don't be sorry Nupur, or Dale will be sorry for you too. Think of him with a smile, in reverence for the many many smiles he brought to your face.

  79. I am an ardent dog lover and an equally ardent follower of your blog. I had a lump in my throat when I saw the Feed Blitz email that just said "Dale". So sorry to hear that Dale is not with you any more. We had a Dalmatian at home when I was young and my grandfather was so upset when Dolly passed that he refused to let any one bring a dog home after that. Dale seemed like such a "samanjas" dog from his pictures and from what you wrote about him. I hope you and your family feel a little better with time. Thank you for sharing with us on your wonderful blog. - Aparna

  112. dear nupur...i can understand your grief. my best friend Dorji too lived for 14 years and passed away 2 years ago...
    Those were the best 14 years of our lives...our vet would say dogs usually live 12 years and that dorji was enjoying bonus years.
    The vacuum will never be filled up and not a day goes by without thinking abt that lil one who filled our lives with so much love and happiness and was so selfless.

    May God bless Dales soul ...we'l miss him so much. i would look forward to dale tales more than anything on your blog...they were so interesting.

  121. My deepest sympathies Nupur. I have never commented on your blog before but I have enjoyed the food and non-food tales -- Dale played a starring role in the latter. Our first rescue cat died old, fat, temperamental and happy; I don't think I have ever cried more at someone's passing.

  138. Dear Nupur,

    I have been reading your blog for a few years now and always enjoy your posts, including your little updates on Dale. As someone who grew up with animals and clearly remembers the pain of each loss, I can understand what you and your husband are going through. All too often, the sense of bereavement associated with the passing of a beloved pet is dismissed, but it is, in fact, a real and painful emotion.
    You and your husband clearly gave Dale a wonderful, happy life and you have 12 years of special memories to live with.

  139. Nupur,

    I'm saddened by the death of your beloved Dale. Although I never met him in person, I feel as though I knew him though your blog posts about this wonerful dog! I understand how difficult it is to lose a friend and family member. My heart goes out to you.

  160. I am so very, very sorry. It's so hard to lose a beloved pet. My wonderful 17-1/2 year old cat died this year, and although he had a great and long life, I was heartbroken. It's just such a hard thing.

    Dale was really a special dog - I am so sorry.

  164. Hello Nupur,
    I too have dipped into your blog over the years without commenting. There is something very comforting about reading it and your posts about Dale were my favourite element. I am shedding a tear as I write this. He seemed to be the loveliest of companions and I also hope the very good hearted lad rests very peacefully.
