What a beautiful and moving tribute and the pictures wow. In fact when I opened this thread my heart dropped in the first nanosecond because the first thing I seen was the picture of her beautiful self and I recognized her instantly. I knew her charm even though I had never met her. It was so obvious. My heart is breaking for you. I am sure she will be with you always. Love so strong as hers is eternal and there just can't be any other outcome.

So sorry for your loss. :( It is never easy to love a dog so deeply, knowing that one day too soon they will be gone.

Your tribute to her is beautiful.  As beautiful as River herself.


Rest well, incredible girl.

I was not prepared to see this at work this morning, and now my heart is beating fast and I'm holding back tears.  Seeing River again, oh she just takes my breath away.  I'm so very, very sad and sorry she had to leave.  Thank you for sharing her with us.  She's one in a billion, that little minky.  We'll all have wonderful reunions someday, I believe that with my heart and soul.  I hope your hearts are finding peace, you moved mountains to do everything right for your beloved little girl.

Tricia, I'm just seeing this and so, so sorry for your loss of sweet River.  Having suffered our own devastating loss around the same time, I can say that every loss is such a unique pain, creating cracks in our hearts.

I think River was one of the first lurchers I was aware of - naive me never even thought of the possibility, but River was so sweet and fit into your life with such ease.  She was so obviously meant to be yours for as long as she could stay.  Hugs to you and Burke....

Tricia and Burke,

I don’t come on here often after having lost Stewie and today I thought I would take a look and I see the passing of River. Words fail me as she was so special like so many of our pups, my heart breaks for you both. 

She was such a pretty girl.

I'm so very sorry that the splendid, loving, and well-loved River couldn't have spent more time with you, Tricia and Burke.  Fast or slow, the loss hurts deeply; but, yes, fast is such a gut punch. Sending love and hugs to you.
