Brandy at 18 years old

Never in my wildest dreams when I walked into a pet store over 18 years ago and saw you, would I realize that you would be such an important part of my life. I felt so bad that you were the only little dog left and took you home.

That's when it started. You turned into a little monster! Chewing things up and biting. Your puppy years were difficult to say the least. You were my constant companion and I grew up with you. When the girls came into your life I was so worried, seeing that you had been my baby for 7 years already, but you surprised me and were such a great big sister to them. They miss you every day, as do I.

The hardest thing I ever had to do was watch you get old and come to the realization that it was your time. It has been just over two weeks since you passed away, and not a day goes by that I don't think of you. The house seems so empty without you.

The girls each have a picture of you on their nightstand and say a little prayer each night. I hope you are happy and safe. I also hope you have an endless supply of Kleenex and all the cookies you can get your paws on.

I love you with all of my heart, girl, and hope to see you again one day.

Thank you for your kind words. It was very hard not to have her here for Christmas. It does get a little easier each day, but I still miss her so deeply. :(

My dog named Brandy passed away this year too. So sorry for your loss, I know how special Brandys are.

So sorry
by: Karen

Oh . . . Brandy, Brandy, Brandy. I cried when I read your story. So sorry that you're going through all this sadness. I know how you feel as I lost my 9 year old Germand Shepherd last Sunday.

It's not easy losing a loving and loyal pet. It is so heart-breaking when they leave us. I hope you find deep comfort in knowing that the angels above are looking after Brandy.
