Thank you for sharing Derby's story.


She was so lucky to share her final years in such a loving home.


God Speed, Derby. :f_white:brokenheart

I am very sorry for your loss of Derby. She was a truly lovely lady. It's hard to say goodbye to a beloved friend. May your memories bring peace to your aching heart.


Run free, sweet Derby.

I knew this sweet tribute was coming, and I knew that I would cry through it all. Even knowing that you had had to part with her, the reality of seeing the tribute hurts so much. Your girl was so special, and we got a little taste of how special she was because you shared her with us. Thank God she found you in her life and that she felt truly loved. I am truly sorry for your tremendous loss. There's no way to replace the magic that a pet brings to our lives. We can only move on and honor them as we do so. God bless you and your Derby.

I am so sorry for your loss. Derby is truly an angel now.


Make yourself familiar with the angels, and behold them frequently in spirit; for without being seen, they are present with you.

This is such a moving tribute to your Derby - I know she was a special hound, but now I truly know why. What an amazing life she led, and how fitting that you were her last forever home. I know you hurt and I know she leaves a huge empty place in your home and in your heart, but she will always be with you in memory and in spirit. :grouphug:grouphug:grouphug

I'm so sorry..... :f_pink


God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.

So he put his arms around you and whispered "Come with me"

With tearful eyes I watched you, and saw you fade away,

Although I loved yo dearly, I could not make you stay.

A million times I've need you, a million times I've cried,

If my love could have kept you here, you never would have died.

If teardrops were a stairway, and memories were a lane,

I'd walk all the way to Heaven, and bring you home again

Derby would surely have loved that tribute, if she is as much like Bluebird as I suspect. Perhaps she is not so much dead as free to be the angel she always was?
