      She was 14 years old. She lived a long, happy life. We were blessed to share so many years with her.

    I’m so sorry Jill, to lose a pet is to lose a beloved part of the family. I’m sure Luna was adored and had a wonderful life. She has such a sweet face in your photo :)

      She was the sweetest girl ever. She didn’t have a mean bone in her body. Thanks, Caitie.

        I petted my dog until he got bored, got up, and walked away, in honor of your loss. . . it took awhile.

      Thank you, Suzanne. It happened so fast, there was only a few minutes for one more I love you and goodbye. We had just walked in the door. I’m grateful she wasn’t alone and that we were there with her to comfort and reassure her as she crossed over the rainbow bridge.

      I hate goodbyes. Those of us who love dogs know that every 10-12 years our hearts will be broken. But hellos to new puppies are so joyful. I know you’re already in love with your new puppy, Francesca.

    I am so sorry to hear about your losing sweet Luna. It’s been six months since I had to say good bye to little bear Andy. He was a 17 year old American Eskimo and I still miss him underfoot in the kitchen, seeing him asleep up on our bed and the long walks we us to take together. You miss them so much because they’re family.

      I agree, Kristin. Dogs are members of the family. I’m sorry for your recent loss, too. Seventeen years is a long life.
