Hi- Please accept my sincere condolences at the end of your beloved Rosie's life. It is very hard, but a loving euthenasia is sometimes the greatest gift we can give them. I'm so sorry for your loss.


Oh, Christie, I'm so sorry.


I'm so sorry about Rosie. I know the pain - our 15 year old Vizsla mix is getting frailer by the day, and I suspect she doesn't have more than a few weeks left (if that). And I have an 11 year old Flatcoat who's showing signs of age.

They give you so much love and joy in their all-too-short lives that it's devastating to lose them.


I am so sorry about Rosie. Be glad you had 13 years with her. I lost my Cheeko one month prior to his 6th birthday.

But you are right, they never stay with us as long as we want them to.


I'm so very sorry, Christie,

Rosie has been with you through a lot and it's just heartwrenching, numbing, to lose her, especially now with so many other changes in your life.

Blessings to both of you, hon.


Christie, about 10 minutes ago I wrote the following to a friend who's got an old dog:

"Having taken care of an old dog, I know there's a bond that develops, stronger than the bond we have when they're sleek and fast and crafty. Nurturing a dog, or any animal we love, brings out the best in us."

Yes, dogs die too soon. Always. You're a better person for having shared their short lives.

My best to you and Rosie.

Christie, my thoughts are with you. All the people I've known who have Deerhounds seem to have an almost magical bond with them. Not to say that others don't have bonds as strong...but Deerhounds must be great souls.


Christie, I wish I had the words to comfort you. I'm sure you are a wonderful dog mom to Rosie and I'm sure she's quite aware of that. Euthanasia is necessary, in a lot of cases, but that doesn't make the decision any easier. I'm so sorry. Hugs.


Thinking of you and Rosie. And hoping Rebel's surgery went smoothly.

Sorry about Rosie! I know losing a pet is losing part of your family.

We have two borzoi - your Kyrie is beautiful!



You're both in my thoughts and prayers. Having been honored to meet her, I know firsthand that she was indeed a special puppy.
