Hi Gang
Don't have any pictures of Katie when she was a puppy, old computer crashed and we lost all of those pictures. We lost Katie about six weeks ago, now is the right time to look back on her life and the joy she always bought us. RIP Sweet Girl. Love you and miss you. I really miss that cold nose of yours poking me in the morning.

Love Dad

Hi C Mom yea we miss our girl but in the last week or two she still is making me smile and shake my head at her crazy self. Im not going to kid anybody I still get tears at times when I think if her, but the biggest thing is she is not in pain or suffering from that stupid cancer.

We lost our boy Taz in Feb., he was 15.5, had cancer too. He had bascially been in Hospice his last entire year, we opted not to put him through any type of treatment because of his age, we knew it would be too hard on him. He had a good long life with us, he'd been with us since he was 8 weeks old.

We still tear up thinking about him, looking at his pictures-I recently came across some pics I didn't know I had, they were taken before the days of Digital Cameras, needless to say, they are very precious to us.


ETA: This is one of my favorite passages:


It came to me that every time I lose a dog, they take a piece of my
heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with
a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my
heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they
are.”

Your above post is so true, I have had 4 Golden's in the last twenty years and each time I lost one it took a bit of my heart. But as your quote says every time I get a new Girl she gives me a piece of their heart. I think losing Katie just took a bigger chunk of my heart than I thought it would. Things are looking up though, very soon we will be getting either a puppy or a rescue and she can start to help heal my heart.

What sweet photos. I also have a soft spot for scrunched-up-on-pillow-sleeping faces. :smooch:

Sweet girl Katie. Some dogs just leave their paw prints in your heart, never to be erased.

Sorry for your loss of Katie. I hope you can get some comfort with a new pup or rescue very soon. Your pictures were precious. Looking forward to seeing your new pup.
