Miss Nellie


Recommended Posts

It is with our very sad, hurting hearts that Brian and I have to tell you that we helped Miss Nellie to the bridge this morning :( This was the most difficult thing that we have ever had to do, but is was best for her. I can't stop crying. Her little body was tired and hurting, she could not walk, could not stand up on her own...she was no longer living her life the way she wanted to and she was very depressed. She went peacefully, wrapped in her Circle of Grey healing blanket.


Bless you sweet Miss Nellie...you are now running pain free with 4 legs! You will be missed and loved forever and ever! You have touched so many lives in your short time here on earth and I know you will continue to! Now you can play and run and climb stairs again!


Thank you, everyone, from the bottom of our hearts for all of your prayers, support and most of all, caring...you have been there with us thru this difficult time and I don't know how we could ever give back what you have given to us.


We will keep fighting for you, Miss Nellie...someday, there will be a cure for Osteosarcoma and no one will ever have to go thru what we have had to and no hound will ever have to suffer again.



It's so hard saying goodbye and it hurts so bad...but I know we will see you again...we love you, Miss Nellie :beatheart

:weep I am so very sorry. What a special girl. She touched all of our lives and we all feel the pain right now.


Run free sweet girl, until we meet again. The night sky is certainly brighter with your star shining down on us. May God help your aching heart.

:cry1 We all thought if anyone could beat this nasty disease, it would be the amazing Miss Nellie. I'm sitting here in tears, as I'm sure will everyone who sees her name in the Remembrance forum. I'm just so very sorry for the loss of your very special girl. :grouphug :grouphug

Godspeed sweet Nellie.

Suzie and Brian I am so sorry. Miss Nellie, you are loved by so many.

Even knowing this was coming, you just can't prepare yourself enough.


I will keep fighting this ugly disease in Nellie's honour for all our babies.

Oh, god, I'm so, so sorry... Miss Nellie has had such a huge impact on me, I can't even tell you in words. I've never cried over a rememberance post, but I am right now, and I've never even met her. I can't even imagine how hard it must be for you. :cry1

I know there are no words to make you feel better right now. Please know that we are all out here crying and grieving right along with you, admiring this last, loving gift of dignity you've given to your sweet girl.


Miss Nellie, your new life as a guardian angel begins today. Thank you for inspiring all of us. We'll work very hard to find a cure for the disease that took you too soon. Run free, brave girl, and watch over your family until they can see you again.

Suzie, Brian, Miss Katie and Mr. Alan, you have our deepest sympathy. :f_pink


You will never know the huge impact Miss Nellie has made on so many...thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing her with us, the good times and the bad. She will forever be missed and loved.


Even though Miss Nellie didn't beat this $%#@ cancer, she brought such a huge awareness to so many about this and Dr. C's research.


We are so sorry for your loss. :weep


God Bless Miss Nellie and your family, and all the others who are fighting this monster. May Miss Nellie have a wonderful time as she runs and plays and waits at the bridge until she meets you all again. :gh_run2

I'm so sorry - I know the pain. We picked up our Pup's ashes from the vet today. Osteo has taken too many of our beloved hounds lately. All the while we were fast losing Pup to Osteo, I was reading and following along with Miss Nellie & I kept hoping and praying that she would beat this terrible Cancer for atleast a little while longer.


I'm crying with you today f_yellow
