Somehow I already knew.
I'm so sorry.
*long warm hugs*

As I have an elderly Corgi and a cerebellar defective duckling both on borrowed time, I know that my personal sorrow will be here soon as well. Thinking of you Christie in your hurt.


Christie, I'm so very sorry for your loss. Hugs to you and Rawley during this difficult time.


Oh, no. Oh no. I am SO sorry.


I'm so very sorry, Christie. There's never enough time with them. Sleep gently, Kyrie.

Chris Lewis

This is sad to read but there is othing else you could have done. We learned so much through her struggles with MRSI. Godspeed.

Christie, I am so very sorry. What an amazing dog she was, and how blessed you were to have each other. I too am living with a beloved dog on, as Gina put it, the riverbank. You know that many of us empathize deeply.


Oh, Christie, I am so sorry. She was such a beautiful dog. Warm thoughts to you and Rawley. Lindsey is "on the riverbank" too and it's very hard.


I am so sorry to hear about Kyrie. She was a gorgeous girl. They are never with us long enough. (((hugs)))


There just aren't words that seem adequate in times like this. I've been there, of course, and will probably be kissing my arthritic Marley that final kiss, soon, so my heart certainly knows that pain. 12 years for a giant breed is a testament to how much you loved and cared for her. Thinking of you & your boy. Big hug.


So sorry! She had a good life filled with love because of you and now she is free from the pain.


I'm so sorry.

I, the materialist, who never believed
in any promised heaven in the sky
for any human being,
I believe in a heaven I'll never enter.
Yes, I believe in a heaven for all dogdom ....

So very sorry to hear this, Christie. She was a lucky dog to have you in her life.

Julie Hill

*big crushing hug*
Oh Christie, I am so so sorry. She was beautiful and your were so beautiful together. My heart is breaking for you and Rawley.

Jan McCartney

So sorry to read this, Christie. You talked about her so much I felt like I knew her.


I'm sorry.

Laura B

hugs winging their way over to you Christie. So sorry.

Lis Carey

Christie, I'm so sorry.


oooohhhh. So sorry to hear this. Candles are lit to celebrate her life and light the way to the bridge.


Oh I'm so sorry. Hugs to you. She was such a lovely girl.


I'm so sorry for your loss, but glad you had each other.


Be seeing you, Kyrie.


{{{Christie and Kyrie}}}}}

I wish I had seen this earlier.

Love you.



I'm so sorry, Christie. No dog could have had a more dedicated or loving owner.

Susan Blatz

So sorry for your loss. You were both lucky to have each other.

mary francis

So sorry to read this - all dogs should have such love as your beloved fairy girl.

Pamela Picard

I'm very sorry for your loss Christie.

So sorry, Christie. The older borzoi are, well, something to hug often and give extra treats. My 10 year old Zara likes this. While I know she won't be here forever, hard to imagine her not sleeping by my bed and greeting me at the door. Puppy, now 1 year old Sully has brightened our lives, but it's the end of an era when a special one leaves. I'll light a candle for her, and you.


Christie... I'm so sorry for your loss. Our dogs are definitely SPECIAL family members and even tho we know when we get them that their lives are short, it is so painful to lose such a dear friend. <>


Christie, I'm so very sorry.
See you at the Bridge, Kyrie.

I am so very sorry, Christie. I lost a 12-year-old myself, earlier this year. I'm still learning to cope.

Lisa in Cape May County, NJ


Peace and comfort to you at this most difficult time. We never have them long enough.


So sorry for your loss of such a dear friend. Breathe in the crisp fall air and remember all the beauty that she was. I lost a dear girl in August and it still is rough. Talking with people in person and on the web has helped.
