Grandy - Craigie Grandy September 1, 2004 - October 5, 2016


Recommended Posts

I am still struggling with the reality that she's gone.


Everyone tried so hard. Her sheer will, medical science and love just couldn't do it. Her DaddyMan and I shared our wonderful memories with the vet who had been caring for Grandy since she had been admitted to Alta Vista Animal Hospital's Critical Care Unit. We cried, we laughed, while Grandy and I stole as much time as we could. Then she bumped me with her nose and stared at me. I knew it was time.to say see you later.


You gave everyone who knew you so much. You brought together people I proudly call my family. You gave us two wonderful boy hounds who have much of your personality. You gave me grey hairs, soft licks, nose bumps and looks oh those looks. I can't fathom our lives without you.


Run :gh_run with our angels Grandy girl, snuggle your babies Tohr, Wellsie and Phury, race Peanut, hang out with Jake and reassure Jet, watch out for your boys Zee and Lightning.


Driving home from the vet, I looked up to the sky which was dark and cloudy. All of a sudden the clouds parted to show a beautiful crescent moon. I love you to the moon and back Grandy Girl. :heart




Falling in love with the red girl. Grandy and 4 month old Zee and Lightning Grandy loves her babies.




My heart :beatheart My birthday was 5 days after Grandy crossed the bridge, my almost 13 year old granddaughter Kalia gave me this drawing, my favorite gift.


Casual Bling & Hope for Hounds
Janet & the hounds Maggie and Allen Missing my baby girl Peanut, old soul Jake, quirky Jet, Mama Grandy and my old Diva Miz Foxy; my angel, my inspiration. You all brought so much into my light, and taught me so much about the power of love, you are with me always.
If you get the chance to sit it out or dance.......... I hope you dance! Missing our littlest girl.

I am so sorry that Mama Grandy had to leave. She charmed all of us when we watched her puppies arrive and followed her journey as well as theirs to their forever home.


Run free, sweet Grandy. :f_red

Janet, I am so sorry...what lovely memories, especially running with her pups after a difficult birth. My thoughts remain with you as you adjust to life without her, a very painful, sad process. :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 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

So very sorry for the loss of your beautiful Grandy.

I had the pleasure of meeting her in the fur at the picnic a few years ago.

You made some wonderful memories.....remember them and smile....

I'm so sorry Janet. I remember the night she welped and what a struggle it was, only to lose three of the pups and almost her too! She brought so many people together!


Run In Peace sweet girl. You are missed by so many....
