A great story, and a really beautiful dog...I can imagine how hard this loss is for you. I have a 13 year old Welsh Corgi with a medical condition called megaesophagus. I dread the day that I have to say goodbye.

Thank you for sharing your love and your grief.



Kathy, thank you for leaving a comment on my blog via Laurelines. I had to comment on this post as we just found out our beloved dog, Gigi, has a brain tumor this weekend.
I am so sorry for your loss and know how painful this must be. Our stories are very similar of how we came to be the lucky owners of such special beings.
I love your work and will be back.
Take good care.


Kathy, I hope you're doing better. We lost a kitty member of the family about the same time. (See my readers, page down a little to Sealy) Animals are priceless. I'm not writing to bring you down but to check on you and hope you're doing better.


This is a beautiful story. We lost our 8 year old golden retriever Mollie to cancer few years back, so I very much empathize with your sadness. I hope you are taking good care of yourselves right now.
Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. Your work is exquisite. I will come back again and again.


Oh what a wonderful story. So beautiful. I understand the unconditional love of our precious furry friends... as I am writing this, my 2 beagles... ages 14 and 11 have followed me and are now snoring blissfully. My heart is filled with the love I know you felt for your sweet Lady.

Man, that's tough. It really is. It's such a loss. Your love for her is very evident. Going forward may there be joy in the midst of clouds.

Wow Kathy, I am so very sorry about losing your Ladybug. I am sitting here in tears as I write this. Having lost one 14 year old dog to heart failure (a pound puppy when we got her) and now owning 2 dogs from the Humane Society (litter mates) I totally understand what you are going through. All too well.

That was very kind (and brave) of you to take in an older dog. I hesitate to do that because you know that your time together will be even shorter than if you get a puppy (well, usually anyways). Everyone goes for the puppies, but it takes a very special person to adopt an older dog. I am not surprised that you would be that special one!

Hi Kathy - I'm so sad for you all, but what a great life you gave her, and she you - lovely story, thank you.


Hey Sweets,
She was a lucky dog!
I count having a friend like you among my many blessings.

Much Love


Oh Kathy,
I'm so sorry, you've written a beautiful story and loving tribute...

I just found your blog and felt compelled to add my condolences. you are right, they do make us better humans. Dogs are the only beings I know of that love us day in and day out completely unconditionally. Caterina

Oh Girlfriend, I am so sorry you have lost your lovely Ladybug. That is so hard, even when we know they are old and going to go, it still feels too soon to lose them. She was lucky to have had such a good final home and lots of love at the end of her life. Sending you big hugs as you work through this hard time.
Big love too...


I'm so sorry to hear that you've lost your beloved fur friend. It's such a hard thing to go through. Thanks so much for the story :) It's a love story, that's for sure.

Oh, Kathy, I am so sorry to hear that Ladybug passed away. It is such a sad time. What a sweet dog she was. I loved her.

I'm so sorry about Ladybug. It's hard to lose a beloved pet....I know all about that.


My condolences to you and your family. What a wonderful story! And such a beauty!


My thoughts go out to you and your husband in losing Lady! But what a wonderful story and what a special addition to the family she had been!


I'm so very sorry, Kathy. Please know that I cry for Lady, too. My friend's losses are my losses. I know she'll always be in your heart.


What a wonderful story. I am so sad for you, I have felt the same pain of losing a dear pet. I am sending you healing thoughts. I'm glad you have memories to comfort you.
I'll be looking forward to the next chapter.

I'm very sorry to read about your loss Kathy. This is a great photo. Ladybug looks like a regal matriarch, and I'm glad John let her reign in your home.


Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about Lady :( I know from experience that it's very hard to lose a pet who has been a member of your family for a long time. Lots of love to you.

The story of how she became part of your family is lovely - I'll look forward to chapter two :)


so,so sorry to hear about your loss. thanks for telling your story. she will remain in your hearts.
