So sorry, Doug. Dogs are our best friends, and although I never met him, Moondog was special.

Our Baxter, an adopted CockerPoo, is our seventh dog during our 52 years of marriage.

Our hearts hurt with yours.

Sorry to hear this Doug. Dogs become part of the family and give us all their love, trust and devotion. Moondog was lucky to have such a loving family.

Default Dogs

What an amazing gift dogs are for us humans. My family has always had dogs. Every 6-15 years you have to go through that horrible horrible time where you have to say good bye and its so hard. Sorry to hear, but sounds like you had an amazing bunch of years with an amazing buddy. All the best to you and your family.

Sorry for the loss of Moondog. I feel for all of you. Several years after loosing my first dog (it felt like I had lost a limb) I was finally emotionally able to adopt an Aussie puppy. Man's best friend.

Doug and Susie, We feel for you right now. We went through this when we had to say goodbye to our 16 year old Jack Russel a few years ago. She used fly with us a lot in the RV10. Mans best friend - full stop.

Default Your loss is too real to us....

We lost our Chica girl on Dec 2nd, 2020. I know because I wrote it in my Bible.
We got her at a flea market in Brownsville, TX. She was born in Chihuahua, MX. We enjoyed her for 14 years. We give them the best lives we can and look back on fond memories. Bye Moondog, Bye Chica.
