They all said this was one of those times we could have thrown all the money in the world at it and not fixed it. We are remembering the good times. Now we mourn and look forward to the next bundle of joy that Mary Howley will bring into our lives. Just to pass this on, Mary is taking care of us no questions asked. That doesn't make it easier but worrying about how to pay for another pup is something we don't have to deal with. Thank you Mary for that.
    Classy. Some things you just do because you know its the right thing....... hope you get your new bundle soon-they do wonders to help us heal the heart...

    At that age they are all legs and unsure how to use them. They are happy and full of joie de vivre. Life is good. So sad that you didn't get to see if there was any promise of things to come, but I'm guessing she left knowing she was loved and appreciated. It must be very sad in your home tonight, but know she wouldn't want that.

    Best,

    I'm at a loss for words; looking at my "youngsters" and what the mean to my husband and I, my heart aches for you and all who were touched by her.

    Godspeed Boo.

    So saddened to hear this. My condolences. Prayers sent for all concerned.

    All my sympathy on the loss of your pup. Life isn't always fair or right, but you gave her all the kindness and love you had to give.

    Bob- I am so sorry to hear this. I lost my first lab at 17 months old. I have some idea what you are going through. It ripped my heart out. Not only do you loose the puppy you love, you loose the hope for the future and the spark they being into your life. Miss Boo must have been a perfect puppy for God to want her back so soon. My sincere condolences.

    Sorry for your loss. It is tough to lose one at such a young age. I have been there myself. Your family has had a rough time lately. Hope the future is brighter.
