Zachary went peacefully at 5:15 tonight. We spend his final few hours lazing on the couch and I was able to hold him in my arms as he crossed the Bridge. He is resting in the garden beside Jazz and I know that there are many pups who welcomed him when he arrived. My heart is empty but I know it was the right thing to do...

Kris, I'm so sorry. Lots of hugs and tears shed on your behalf tonight. My heart aches, and I know how hard it must have been. You gave him much love in the decision to set him free. Safe journeys Zachary.

I wish I had the right words to thank you all. You are so compassionate and kind and even as I shed tears for my little boy, I find great comfort and solace here. So many of you have shared the same journey and know the depth of feelings with this loss. You are all true friends. Thank you.

Kris, my heart breaks for you. I am so very sorry.

Very sorry for your loss. He sounds like such a special little guy, I had a little ironwoman growing up and know how wonderful schnauzers can be. Hugs to you.

No matter how long they are with us, it is never long enough. My thoughts are with you.
