Her old body finally just wore out, and I did her the big favor this morning.

As you can see, she loved being in the trailer, and loved camping walkies and sniffs, and lying in the sun in the far too early morning.

It won't be the same without her. I miss her already. Bay and all.

Gina, I am so very sorry. Dogs are such special friends and it's so hard saying goodbye, but I've always found that the joy and love we've had with them is worth the hurt we go through at the end. Treasure the memories of your years together. She was a lucky girl to have such a great "mom"!

I couldn't help but notice, Gina, that your sweet little Beagle stayed just long enough to get you launched as a full-timer. What a good girl! My beagle girl's next sunrise AROO at our campsite will be in memory.

When my parent's first full-timing dog died I was consoling my mom, reminding her of his humble roots as a stray and his high-living years in their Airstream, and she nodded, and sniffled, and said "Freddy did 40,000 miles." I thought it was so sweet that she knew his mileage.

Our condolences.

Three days ago, Misty left me. She was called "misty" because i took her off campus on a rainy day... while she cowered frightened under a car in the parking lot. People dump cats on campuses sure that people like me will care for them. I do not fail them ever. When she crossed over Friday after almost twenty years (estimated) as my loving friend I uttered the following verbatim from a plaque I hold on the wall:

Hear our humble prayer,
O God,
for our friends, the animals,
especially for those who are suffering;
for any that are lost or deserted
or frightened or hungry.

We entreat for them all
Thy mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them,
we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.

Make us, ourselves,
to be true friends to animals
and so to share
the blessings
of the merciful.

Albert Schweitzer

If ever there was a real "I feel your pain" it would be now and I do.

I am so sorry for your loss. I'm sure your many years with Kitty were joyful for the two of you. It took great courage and love to "do the big favor" for your dear friend and companion. May your sorrow fade quickly and soon be replaced with all the fond memories of your time together.
