    RIP Esme 09/07/2011

    At noon today we sent Esme along the next path, at home with her peeps around her. A Buddhist nun friend of ours helped with the transition.

    I'm really sorry to read the news, Spike. I fully understand how important our best friends are to all of us, and I send you and Esme's family my condolences.
    That's a fantastic picture of a striking dog! I'm sure it was the right decision, and now she can run with all the pups again!

    It is sad that a dogs life is so short. Even so they add so much. To bad they can't live as long as parrots.

    I am truly sorry for your loss. I know she will be sorely missed.

    Seems like she had a pretty good run, Spike. The curse of being a dog lover is knowing that these days will come... but knowing doesn't make it any easier to hang up that collar.

    My condolences for your loss.

    I feel for your loss as I have been down that road several times now.

    My current best friend is a black lab who is turning 9 years old this month and is an avid duck and dummy retriever and it hurts when I think his time is passing too quickly.

    I must admit a tear comes to my eye, as I share your grief.

    So sorry to hear that Spike, I know that particular pain well.

    Hang in there.
