So sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved pet. We lost our Brittany Spaniel to a battle with cancer several years ago, and understand the depths of your grief.

She'll be waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge.


🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️

Steph, you and David have our sympathies for your loss of Alki. I'm sure you're grateful for the extra time y'all were given to be with her, even though it's never enough.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Alki was a very lucky dog to have such loving people. Her memory will live long, of that I am certain. My condolences to your family during this sad time.

Thanks for all the condolences, it does help to know others have been through the same thing. Dogs make such special friends, it's so hard to let them go. But I'm glad she had a good life, and we were able to give her the easy way out. I'll never forget her, that's for sure.

Steph, So sorry to hear about Alki. She was such a sweety to put up with our little yorkies at Area 33. Big hugs from Glenn & I to you and Dave.

Hi Steph,

"Our little Alki Dog" helped us get through some really hard times. We lost Chief two years ago and I would sign on and see her smiling face. She was a great dog and a huge support to us.

Many condolences on your loss.

So sad to hear this, but know you did everything you could and most importantly- you were there with Alki to the end! FFifteen is a terrific age for a healthy dog, and the fact she lived an extra three years with a diagnosis like that is amazing-- a testament to your care. I'm sure that sweet dog is still with you, just now in spirit rather than in full fuzz. Thank you for loving her so fully :-) As an animal rescuer, it is wonderful to see stories like this even when they're bittersweet endings..Rae

Stef, when I saw this thread on the portal my heart sank thinking of what it might say. Oh, I so hate to read about your loss. I pray the bright happy spot that she was will live on in your hearts and totally understand about never forgetting her. She was a sweetie.

We are really sorry to hear about Alki. Some times life is filled with wonder like when a little white puppy comes home with you and moves right in to your hearts. Then, we wonder why they have to go away again when they, and we, have so much love yet to share. You can bet she's waiting for you guys..........

Thank heavens you have some other fur kids around to help you ease through the sad times.
