day after day sameness
So very sorry. Hope you can find memories of all the great times together and when she has comforted you.
I've done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day...
Sorry :-( I know how hard that can be. Dogs are such a gift.
Live the Adventure. Enjoy the Journey. Be Kind. Have Faith!
Oh roo roooo!
Ah, so sad....dogs are the best thing in the world, so sad when one of our friends leaves us. Wishing you a peaceful parting and many fond memories, altho none of that will take the place of your hound.

I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Oh! I'm so sorry.
OCD If you don't laugh...
Needs more cowbell!
I'm so sad. We just said goodbye to our eldest kitty >3 weeks ago. She lived a good, long life. Daisy's a lucky girl. She has had a great human family to love her. I'm sorry that you guys have to prepare to lose her. It's never ever easy.

I know how heartbreaking it is to lose a pet, so sorry to hear this Perfesser. Daisy is a beautiful animal.

I am so sorry. It is so hard to have to lose such a loyal and loving friend.

So sorry to see this, Russ. She looks like a true champion in that photo.
Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
How old is Daisy? I know that doesn't really set anything whatsoever right, but I do hope she had some great years in there.
About 10, she's a rescue so we don't really know. We had her 7 years and many hundreds of training miles, that's why she's an honorary Maniac.
Absolutely heartbreaking news about your cherished running partner and calendar girl
I also have been there...devastating loss. Give her a hug from me.
Use your momentum...keep going. You know you can make it.
