Spriet 10/14/2002 - 11/27/2015


Recommended Posts

I made this video of Spriet over 7 years ago.

Unfortunately Spriet has had many health issues over the past years. The last couple of months her behaviour started changing.

We made a list of all the issues she had, we talked to our vet and we decided to let Spriet go today.

Oh Anne :grouphug It is so hard to do the right thing when it hurts so much, yet, it is the greatest gift we can give our friends when their time comes. Thank you for sharing the most perfect video ever of a dog loving her life - Spriet surely thought that every day with you that This Is The Life :heart My heart goes out to you and your family, and a big hug for Sasha who will be missing her friend. I am so very sorry. :grouphug

Godspeed beautiful Spriet. At the Bridge there is an endless supply of rivers to play in and sticks to retrieve. :f_pink

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 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. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Thank you for sharing your lovely Spriet with us over the years. She was a very special girl, and I know she brought much love & joy to your hearts.

She may be gone from this earth, but she will never, ever, be forgotten. Doing what you know is right, even though it breaks your heart in two, is

the greatest gift of love. Happy Trails to you, Spriet.....and hugs to those who are missing your beautiful face.

Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an old dog.

Oh no! I am so incredibly sorry. Spriet has always been one of my most favourite GT hounds: her gorgeous face, wonderful ears, expressive eyes, zest for life, and adoration of you have always shone through in your amazing photos and videos. I will miss her.


Godspeed Spriet.

My sincere condolences, I'm so sad for you and your family. She's one of the first dogs I got to "know" when I first came here. She's a beautiful girl and will be very missed.

She had such a wonderful life with you and I know will be sorely missed. :grouphug
