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.

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.
