My old Ellie is gone

Recommended Posts

She was just in too much pain. She made it to 14.

 

She had been doing sort of OK but the last few days she seemed to really go downhill.

 

It is so hard to lose a beloved dog. But I was so blessed to have her all the time I did.

 

Maybe more later. Too raw right now.

I can't imagine in 14 years how many times one Border Collie could brighten your day. What a blessing!! I hope in the days to come more and more of those times are brought to mind.

Mary, you gave her a warm loving home when her owners dumped her, you gave her your heart and hearth when she had none, She gave you her love and her heart, now the time has come for her to rest forever without pain. You have your memories and you gave her a wonderful life.

I'm sorry Mary. I hope you can find peace knowing that Ellie is pain free now and, later, in your memories of the wonderful bond you shared. Godspeed Ellie.

Mary,

 

I'm so sorry to read this. Others have said it more eloquently, but the sentiment is the same. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May you find peace in knowing that Ellie is now at peace.

We are so sorry to hear of this....they are special and make the dull world a whole lot brighter and we let them have had a piece of our hearts. But they send it back with another dog but in the meantime, you have to grieve, remember the memories and when you dream at night, she will return in your dreams. She still is there in spirit and you will feel her wet nose on your knee for that brief instance........sending hugs and prayers.....

My regrets re: Ellie. All I can say is those who have the experience and privilege of owning a BC know just how special they are. No other breed compares. Your loss is one that all BC owners share.

Thank you so much for your thoughts. They really help.

 

Ellie was crippled all of her life. I really hope that she can finally run across pastures and round up sheep and really get to just act like a dog.

 

Maybe she can be a faithful companion to the good shepherd. She would be a great heavenly sheepdog. She is faithful and huge hearted. And she had good balance and good instinct. She always tried to do things right. Well, except for the fights to the death with Molly (who is also departed). Ellie loved a good fight - just jumped right in. But none of us is perfect.

 

She could fly across the clouds. Free. That would be so wonderful for her.

 

I miss her. I honest to God think she was still in the house yesterday. I could feel her and I kept turning around to talk to her - but she wasn't there.

 

Mary
