Remembering Spooky




This is the third time in the last 4 months that I've had to say good bye to a best friend and companion. It's been painful enough to have to euthenize Emma and Patches, but, tonight Spookys fight was lost. She's been having a rough time of late and she was in her 16th year. I couldn't let her go on like this. Spooky was a good dog, no, she was a GREAT dog! She minded well, she was quiet and she was a very affectionate, sweet dog. That's the best way to describe her...SWEET. She had the sweetest disposition of all the dogs I've known or owned. We will miss her very
much. As most of you know, the 3 girls (dogs) were mine in New York and when I moved to Nova Scotia with Scotty, the girls traveled cross country with me, to start our new adventure in life. I will miss them all dearly, they have a special place in my heart forever.

Abbi is having a hard time already. She keeps looking for Spooky, she doesn't understand and she's obviously very lonely. We will all miss you, dear sweet Spook, rest in peace, sweet dog.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs,

So sorry for your loss...and sending up a prayer on your behalf. Our beloved animals are such a precious part of our lives and always so dearly missed. What a wonderful gift of love, devotion and friendship you had for all those years!

Oh, Ret, dear one! I don't know how you are bearing up under so many losses so close together. My heart is just broken that you have had to say good bye to all your wonderful pets. I'm sure you will feel that gap for a long time to come. Abbi too! My Fritz is 10 now and a wonderful pet. So loving and obedient. He talks volumes with his body language and I love him dearly. I don't know what I will do when the time comes to say goodbye. All I know is that your dogs had the most wonderful loving home during their time here on earth. They were twice blessed.
I'll be praying for you...

I am so sorry about this. I can't imaagine what you have been going through. You must have gotten all of your dogs about the same time, or maybe they just missed each other. I am so so sory, friend.
