  • Thanks Palindrome.

    Maybe someone will recognize her as their dog that strayed or had to leave them years ago. They can rest assured she was taken care of and loved.

  • She looks just like my Bronte, who I lost 8 years ago. She was such a good girl. I'm sorry for your loss and can completely understand how hard it is.

  • Deb just looked up the records and Sandy was with us for 6 years. At that time the vet guessed her age at 6-8 years old so I guess she had a reasonable life-span.

  • Thanks for everyone's thoughts. I am sure that you know the bond between humans and their pets.

    Another dog has entered our family but this time to our daughter. From pictures she seems to resemble Sandy, but in person she is smaller.

    Equally well behaved, house trained beyond normal and very lovable. She wandered up to our daughter's door very dirty, extra long toenails that were trimmed that night, but not starved.

    She was wearing dog tags from 2011 so she is trying to find the owner, but she has apparently been living on the streets for a few years.

    Temporarily named "little dog", she is obviously resourceful but adapted to living inside again without a hitch. No doggy accidents, walks on a leash comfortably and waits to be invited to jump on your lap, bed or even to eat. I know some people that are not that good!

  • Oh my!....to lose a furry friend is tough! So sorry!

  • Yes, it is tough, but the love they share is unmeasurable. I know most of you know what I mean.

    Most of them get to live a nice long life but occasionally something goes wrong and those are often tougher than when you know they lived well.
