Dobby



this is Dobby - outside, in the wind, enjoying herself as usual. she was born in our porch and lived here for over 12 years, but we had to put her down on monday:( a week before she seemed to have suffered a stroke - or side effects of a tumor, we don't know for sure. the vet thought she might improve if it had been a stroke, but after a week of getting progressively worse we had no choice after all:( now there is a Dobby-sized hole in the house - we all still call her, look for her in her favourite spots and have to get used to a one-dog household again. and we're glad that Minnie and Mr Pringles have chosen us as new family - it would be even more empty without the two of them!
and of course I did collect a lot of Dobby's fluff - so there will always be a little bit of her left - apart from our memories!

I'm so sorry! Losing a 'family' member is never something you breeze through. Sending a compassionate hug........

He was a very handsome dog. May he be chasing squirrels happily on the other side of the bridge. Hugs going your way

I'm so sorry! It's so tough to say goodbye to a canine buddy and they add so much to our everyday lives.

thanks for your comments - we are going to keep a lookout for another dog, but we'll take our time to find the right one. and I hope Dobby will find squirrels on the other side - because she never met one on this one:)

May she Rest in Peace. Dear Dobby.

Ohhh, how sad! Mein Beileid. Ich bin immer völlig verzweifelt, wenn ein liebes Tier stirbt. Schade, dass die uns nie überleben.
Viele Grüße
Angela

wir mussten uns auch von einem tier verabschieden, unser findling-kater bekam mit weniger als vermutlich sechs jahren leukämie. und mein blog ist auch ein wenige-male-pro-jahr-blog geworden, dafür bin ich von instagram sehr begeistert, das geht einfach schneller. viele grüße aus dem südwesten! eliane
