    Oh man, sorry Lonnie. These threads always get me. I hope you take time to remember all the fun you two had, and I hope it eases the loss.

    Sorry about your loss of Briddie. Dogs are such "buddies" who give unconditioal to owners. It is heartbreaking to lose them as they are like family members.
    Briddie looks like she could have been a border collie. We have a male of that breed and he is so smart and loyal.

    14 year old border collie. Her poor old body just finally gave out. She was watching our horses right up to the end...it was her job.

    Bitterroot,

    There are no words that can ease your suffering right now. However, I would like to think that your friend is still watching over you and your horses, and waiting for you. I strongly believe that.

    I am sincerely saddened at your loss of a member of your family...a companion pure of heart. Good dogs are all alike, yet each one entirely different. You gave her a great life, and she left you so many warm memories.

    Lonnie,

    Sorry for your loss. It's difficult to lose a good friend and companion. I've been through it twice now, and I'm not afraid to say it brought me to tears both times. She will be awaiting your reunion.

    I am so sorry, Lonnie. I am sure Briddie could not have asked for a better family and a better life. Please pass my condolences along to the rest of Briddie's loving family.

    Sorry Lonnie. Rough cruel world we live in :(

    Amazing how the memories of companionship are never forgotten and will continue to bring a smile to your face many many years down the road.
