I'm glad to hear Alki is doing so well. Give her a scratch for me.

Sad news today. Alki's cancer finally caught up with her, and this afternoon she made her last trip to the vet. It was very hard because she was bright eyed right to the end. In fact yesterday I posted to my blog that she seemed to still have a bit of spunk, and even came outside and enjoyed the great weather. But this morning she woke up with one leg swollen, and the vet said it was a sign the cancer had finally blocked something. We were able to let her go with her resting peacefully on my lap.

She was almost 15, and made it almost three years since her cancer diagnosis. She was a great dog and we loved her very much. It's going to be very odd without her sitting between us at the dinner table, or coming to me in the morning for a hug.

I am so sorry for your loss. Alki was a very special friend and thanks to you she had 3 additional years to share her love with you.

Rest in peace Alki.

We've all been pulling for Alki since she was first diagnosed...hoping for the best.

You have done a wonderful job taking care of her and giving her a loving, happy home. We are so sorry to hear she finally lost the good fight. RIP, little friend. We're thinking of you, Stephanie...

So very sorry about this Stef.

Two short years ago our corgi insisted on my presence after I escorted her into her rug at the vet, after I parked the truck. Only to have me carry her onto the exam table...

Best dog ever. Tears still rim my eyes.

Peace dear Alki...

Hey Steph,

Sorry to hear about Alki's passing. Pets bring much pleasure and losing one can really hurt.

I am so very sorry for your loss of a dear dear friend. They are with us such a short time, but give us such pleasure. Got some very elderly wee beasties here that I know will leave us too soon. I cry for you and Alki. I cry for what will surely come for us also. Better to have loved these creatures and lost them, than to not have ever known the unending love they gave back to us.

Steph, I'm so sorry about Alki. You and Dave gave her such amazing care for her whole life. I know you received back even more love and happiness than you gave her. Rest in peace sweet Alki.

I am so sorry to hear of Alki's passing. Our pets are such an important part of our lives that they are not pets, but rather family members. Take comfort in knowing that you gave Alki a wonderful life full of love and happiness.

Stef, so sorry to hear. 15 years is a great run with a dog, but as we all know it's too short for us dog owners. They all carry special places in our hearts.

My heart breaks for you today. As I have mentioned before I also have an American Eskimo who was born in Dec 1995. I know the huge spot she keeps in my home and my heart so I can imagine the loss you feel.

We missed meeting you at Ft Stevens recently. Look forward to meeting you someday soon. I feel your pain with the loss of your beloved pet. Lost my little one close to two years now. Still find myself expecting to see her around the house. Time does ease the pain, but the loss really never goes away. Know that there are many
thinking of you and what you are going though. Susan
