Dory Furrever Smiling in Our Hearts



















Dear Dory,
Thank you for teaching us what it is like to have a "heart dog." Our special girl who knew what we needed, or wanted, without asking. You were our muse, and the memory of your smile will always melt our hearts.  The way you grew from a puppy who loved to chase squirrels in your backyard into a beautiful super model(who may or may not have demanded too many treats) amazed us.  Thank you for keeping the boyz in line (when possible) and giving  Daddy "sneaky kisses" on the cheek when he came home from a long day at work.  


All of this is just basically saying.....Thank you for being you. 
We will always love you so very much.
Mama and Daddy


Dory lost her short fight with heart disease this morning and has joined so many of her furiends at the Rainbow Bridge.
We'll be taking a few days off from blogging to remember all the smiles we shared with our sweet girl.

Tribute To A Best Friend

Sunlight streams through window pane
unto a spot on the floor....
then I remember,
it's where you used to lie,
but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet,
and muted echoes sound....
then I remember,
It's where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road,
and up beyond the hill,
then I remember it can't be yours....
your golden voice is still.
But I'll take that vacant spot of floor
and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice
and unused dish along the wall.
I'll wrap these treasured memorials
in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend
until we meet above.

----
sending our thoughts and prayers for your family.
The Johnson's and Abby Lab

Team Beaglebratz with Lady Shasta said...

Beth, Ed and the Boyz - Mom Kim here. I just couldn't believe what I was reading when I first saw the post from Madi and mom over at the POTP blog this morning, it just made me so sad. I am so very sorry you had to make that horrible decision and let your sweet little Dory journey to the Rainbow Bridge. Angel's Shiloh and Oreo always loved to meet new furrends and I bet they were there to welcome Angel Dory.

Dear Angel Dory - I know you miss your family on earth but I know that you are happy now that you are pain-free and like the puppy you use to be. I hope you run free and happy at the Rainbow Bridge where the treats are always available.
Prayers and hugs to your family.
Mom Kim and Lady Shasta

Caren Gittleman said...

We are so deeply, deeply saddened by this news. Our hearts are just breaking for you. I KNOW how hard it is, I lost my soul kitty when he was 18 to heart disease. Like Dory, I knew it was "time" when my normally food-obsessed boy was no longer interested in eating. Sending you gentle (((hugs))) and prayers for strength during this most difficult time. I haven't known you nearly as long as the others have, but Dory has brightened my life in the (sadly) short time I have been following. xoxoxo I am so deeply, deeply sorry xoxo DakotasDen

The backyard will never be the same without Dory to keep the dreaded squirrels in line and tend the flowers. Our hearts reach out to you and we too are remembering all the a-dory-ble moments shared on her bloggy. . The expression on her face when she wore the squirrel costume for the first time. Her travels across the country. Keeping the boyos in line. Being the supreme princess rocking her fashionista style. Such a sweet girl and loved by many around the world.
All our love and sweet woofy kisses.

Dear Dory,
I write to you one last time. My tears flow and my heart aches for your family left here on earth. You taught them many things, including what it means to be a heart dog, which you certainly were to them. If you see my Lexi, please let her know I miss her every day. Maybe she will let you ride her unicorn, or better yet, you will get one of your own. Run free, beautiful girl, until we are all together again.
Love from your friend you never knew.
Amy
