Alix and family... I'm so sorry for your loss. Our four-legged family members are just as important to us as any others.....

Hugs and prayers.

At the time, I figured they'd tell me she'd pulled something and we'd be on our way in no time. Then when we got there things went so fast I just can't believe it. They tell us it was likely an aneurism or a blood clot that went to her lung. Thanks for caring about us.

Here she is.

Awwwwwwww what a beautiful baby she was! I enlarged her photo so I could see into her eyes. So loving! A real-life teddy bear!

I'm so sorry, Alix!

Alix, it's so hard to lose a pet, they are our family. So very hard to do, but know you've done the right thing for your dear pet. My last dog was 12 when he had to leave us, a shepard/collie mix, and the best dog. I suppose you have wonderful photos of your family with your dog, great times together. Your picture of your dog is really nice, thanks for posting that.

Very sorry to hear your news, Alix. She was an absolutely gorgeous dog. Must have been a dreadful shock. Hope you and your family are doing OK.
