Sitting here in front of a blank screen for over 20 minutes, not sure what to say. My sweet old girl told us it was time Thursday Feb 21, 2019 at the wonderful age of 13 years, 1 month and 2 days. My heart is shattered. Thank you all for your love and friendship over the years. May God bless her and keep her, running on good legs, catching balls, chasing sheep, biting sleeves and using her nose for all the days to come.

I'm so sorry Jen... They are just never here long enough. I hope these words can give you some comfort...

“There is a cycle of love and death that shapes the lives of those who choose to travel in the company of animals. It is a cycle unlike any other. To those who have never lived through its turnings and walked its rocky path, our willingness to give our hearts with full knowledge that they will be broken seems incomprehensible. Only we know how small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given.” —Suzanne Clothier

Run free and healthy beautiful girl...

I'm really sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful, sweet Gracie, Jen. I always enjoyed reading stories about her and seeing pictures of her. She had a happy, wonderful life with you. Take care and know that many people here are with with you in spirit. Run free, Gracie, you will be reunited with your loved ones again someday.

Jen, I'm so sorry to know of the loss of Gracie. She was a wonderful friend who will be dearly missed. You and I shared the same pain lately as we watched our loved one decline. Find peace in knowing Gracie was so loved and she knew it. Love knows no limits.

My condolences on the loss of Gracie. She was so loved and had such a rich life, one that other pups would envy. While your heart has broken, I pray you find comfort knowing how magnificent you made her life.

I'm sorry. She was beautiful. Sometimes I gather pictures of their life and remember them at different stages, and the different things we did together. Sometimes it helps me. We all grieve differently. It is so difficult to lose them because having them was so very good. She was loved, and had a good life with you.
