Trouble has Crossed the Bridge

Postby hugapitbull » March 16th, 2011, 8:30 pm

I will post a proper memorial to our angel later, but it would be unkind to not inform the folks who have stuck beside us through the journey that started November 26, 2008.

The evaluation was that we had done all we could do for her. We let her go at 5:45. She left us cancer free and tail wagging, 10 days shy of her 28th amputation anniversary. I cannot imagine life without her.

Thank you all for your kind words and good wishes.

I can't imagine the loss you are feeling. Our thoughts are with you.

I saw the title and didn't want to open the thread.

Bob and Shanna, I am so sorry. Trouble was an amazing dog and I will always hold her close in my heart. Your pain is our pain.

Good bye sweetheart....

I'm so happy that you guys had Trouble and that she had you guys. *hugs* You guys will be in our thoughts.

I don't even have words.

I am so so sorry to hear this. Trouble was so lucky to have had such an amazing family.

Rest peacefully, pretty girl.

Trouble was a fighter, as you know. 28th months post amputation is almost unheard of. Trouble's story is one that I will continue to share with everyone I know when it comes to cancer. I think that Trouble's story is the reason that Skyye's owners chose to do chemo. I'm bummed that they never tried to contact you but Skyye is doing very well and I thank you so much for sharing Trouble's story so that I could instill some hope in other people going through this.

Losing a friend is never easy, I wish I had something amazing to say that could take the pain away. Give Duke lots of squishes for me, as I think I recall he was Trouble's protector. I'm sure as you grieve he will too.

Trouble was definitely a source of inspiration for many and her story is an amazing one. I'm glad you kicked cancer in the butt and graced us with your presence for so long. You will be missed.
