Sorry to hear about your loss sir. No doubt you saw to it that your pup experienced life to the fullest and having a good run of it during our time here is all any of us can ever really ask. God speed.

Sorry to hear that Jonesy. She was a cool dog. I still remember when I first met you and her.

Sorry to read this Craig, she seemed like a sweet girl when I met her.

I would've never guessed her age; she was spunky!

Jonesy... She sure looks like a sweetheart! I am so sorry about Sassy, for what it's worth, she greatly appreciates what you did for her. She knows she was loved and she's waiting for you at the Bridge.

Even when they don't feel good, it's funny how they just keep on doing what they love. Again I am sorry for your loss and can't help but feeling sad for you during this time. She will be watching over your family and you.

My deepest condolences

Loosing a dog is one of the very hardest things I've had to go through in my 62 years on this earth. I've had to go through it 5 times now and it never gets any easier. My condolences sir.

Sorry for your loss, Jonesy. Losing a pet is the hardest part of owning one. You gave her a great life while she was with us!
Retirement is great, I haven't missed a day yet!
