another loss

Carol  ·  Aug. 29, 2013

apparently if you leave a bedroom window open a few inches, lance can smell freedom. a curtain and pillowcase did not fare too well the scent of possibility. weird that he killed the pillow case but left the pillow intact tho.
it is a bit nerve wracking but I gave him his second free run out in the fields. I just have to be really careful not to trick him back on a leash the same way twice cuz he quickly catches on to tricky me.

dawn lost ex-saint Trudy yesterday. Trudy has spent the better part of the last week in and out of the vets on and off IV's. dawn has taken in a lot of the saints dogs over the years but for some reason, Trudy got herself even more wrapped up in dawns heart strings than usual. I think this was a pretty tough loss for her.
I am so sorry for the loss of Trudy dawn and again I thank you for opening up your heart and your home to another without a home. Trudy ended her life truly well loved, she was a very lucky girl.
rest in peace trudy

Sad sorry Dawn..whenever you talked about her..i could tell you loved her madly..she was a great dog and will be missed


Thank you everyone for your kind words, while they all take a part of my heart when they go she took a bigger slice than most. Carol said to me over a year ago when I took her "everyone needs to have a little dog in their life at least once" You are a wise woman....I never knew I could love a dog that much.

Trudy, I will miss hanging out in bed with you.You were very good dog and you will be forever missed. I am so sorry we couldn't do more for you, our time together was cut way to short.


so sorry dawn, you have had your share of heartaches but that has never stopped you from loving more saints animals and taking them home. trudy was very lucky to have had you rip sweet trudy hugs to you dawn, and hannah
