I'm sorry that she has passed on but grateful that you had each other for a good long time.

So sorry she is gone, but she had a very full life with you. I am sure she was very happy with all her 'work'.

I'm so sorry, Liz.  It's never easy . . .


IIRC, you'd just gotten puppy Freya when we were both doing agility with Terry Brown when you were an undergrad.  That was a few years ago.  2001, 2002?

You have a good memory Roxanne.  Yes, Freya was in Terry's puppy agility class in 2001.  Duncan (RIP) and Flyboy (RIP) were in the more advanced classes.  I remember you had that cute little female, Wren in one of them. 


That next summer I went to a sheep dog clinic with Freya.  She did fantastic, I fell in love and next thing I new we were competing in sheep dog trials.  She really did change my life forever.

Ah, shoot.  Dogs just don't live long enough.  And losing them is so hard.  She was just a beautiful, beautiful dog.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss.  She was one of the first dogs I noticed when I first began to read the boards.  Such a beauty!

Dear beautiful girl. I know she will be so very missed. I'm sorry for you. Peace.
