  1. Nancy, I'm so glad Nigel stayed with you! When a special dog who can do so much good and bring so much joy, finds the person who cares enough to share him unselfishly, it's a wonderful thing. Imagine how many people he made smile, how many people whose days were brightened. I know you'll miss him terribly, and so will his many friends. We're so sad that he's gone.
  2. Lucy, I'm late to this thread too, but I've been thinking about you and Spirit so much. I honestly don't have any advice, as I don't know for sure what I would do. But since you know your sweet boy so well, and his well being is uppermost in your mind all the time, you have to know that your decision will be what is best for Spirit.
  3. Jerilyn, what beautiful and perfect tribute. It must have been so hard to write, but I hope it brought you some comfort to celebrate your precious Lila, and to share her with us one last time. She was so very special, and I can't imagine how much you will miss her. You were meant to share each other's lives, and it could never have been long enough. The pictures made me smile---her beauty, her silliness, her elevation of being a pesto to an art form. And the alpacas.....oh, Lila, sweetheart, your friends and family will miss you too.
  4. Oh, Jerilyn, I am so very sorry you lost your precious Lila. She was beautiful inside and out.
  5. I know I'd said I would be back to post when I had some good news to share about our friend. But sadly, that isn't to be. I just wanted to say that our dear friend Robert passed away last night from Covid 19. He and Marilyn had been together for over 45 years. Thankfully, she is getting better health wise, but she is devastated. My heart is breaking for her and their children. But also for everyone whose lives he touched---and there were many. He was the most wonderful person, and incredibly talented. He was a musician, an artist, a photographer, and a generous volunteer. It's not fr

  13. I'm so sorry for your loss of Jack. It's really hard sometimes when we see dogs who remind us so much of the ones we've lost. Lots of us post pics on special remembrance days---birthdays, anniversaries of loss. And National Black Dog Day! It's a perfect time to remember our beautiful black dogs. So yes, if you have more pictures, it would be great to post them. My special black angel dog is Winnie, the tripod queen. That's her in my avatar. She's been gone for quite a while. And our Angie, who is another beautiful black dog, reminds us more and more of Winnie all the time, especial
  14. Hi, Dragongirl 25, I'm just seeing this post now---I'm usually just in the chat club---but I thought I'd reply if you would still like more info. I think it's great to talk to lots of people, because you can see the differences in experiences as well as the similarities. I've been obsessed with Galgos since about 2011, a year before my first trip to Spain to volunteer at Scooby, the largest animal shelter in Spain. I've gone back every year to volunteer there (except when I broke my wrist in 2015), and once at Benjamin Mehnert, in 2013. I was supposed to go back in May, and was broken hear
