So sorry for your loss. It's so hard to lose our best friends. She had a great life with you, and I had the privilege of watching her run.

I am so sorry, Donald, but very grateful to know that she had a very full and satisfying life with you. Let Luke know she'll be waiting for him where the good dogs go.

She went a lot of places and did a lot of things, but the kindergarden may have been the most important of all - letting children meet and interact with a good dog.

Dear Donald,

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your beloved June.

Kindest regards,

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

Saying "it looks like she had a good run" is clearly a huge understatement.
Sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry Donald. I know there's a huge, hard-to-fill hole at Yucatec right now. My condolences to you and Ann.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I had the privilege of watching what must have been one of her last runs. I'm sure she leaves a huge hole in your lives.
