Jan, I am very sorry. That is a wonderful tribute to a special girl. She found her sweetness with you and the gang. Thank you for giving her a loving home that she so deserved.


Run free Sweet, run free sweetie...:gh_run

You know how sorry I am that Sweet had to leave. She knew love and caring during her time with you and the campers. And she returned that - why she stopped feeling the need to yell.


Run with the angels, Momma Sweet. Find Seamie and enjoy the feast.

What a beautiful tribute, Jan. I had to close my office door because it made me all weepy. I'm so, so, so happy that, after such a rough life, she was able to spend her last months with wonderful friends, including a super wonderful human to love her, accept her, and understand her. It took her a long time to find her home, but she sure found the right one in the end. :heart:beatheart:brokenheart


Big hugs to you, Jan. :grouphug

Jan, I am so sorry for your loss of Sweet. Your tribute was absolutely beautiful and filled with so much love, I could feel in my heart how much she was loved. Luckily dogs live in the moment, so I'm sure all she remembered was the love, joy and your bony knees. I'm shedding tears because I will miss her and I know you have another big hole in your big generous heart. :grouphug

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

Oh Jan, I'm so incredibly sorry that she had to go. She wasn't nearly old enough and she didn't get to stay with you nearly long enough. But at least she got to know about the joys of a perfect retirement home for the last year+ of her life. Bringing her home to be with Seamus was a wonderful gift for both of them.


Your tribute to her is perfect. I hadn't realized how much she was like Cal--from the delayed retirement after broodmom duties to the long/narrow/short structure to the wonky gait to the medical problems to the quirks...She was like Cal in a stripey coat. I wish she'd had as much time to enjoy her retirement as did Cal.


Godspeed Sweet.

I love the video - Sweet was so happy and living large! Her time with you was so good for her. And what is Sweeter than that pic with Seamie, as she tucks her head under his?? I'm so sorry she's gone Jan, but so happy she had you and the other campers.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Sweet knew she was loved for the brief time she lived with you and she got the chance to run and play and do whatever she wanted.

RIP Sweet girl. :f_pink
