Rest in peace, Mandy


This is the last picture taken of Mandy, yesterday evening. The highway she so frequently crossed got her today. I always knew it could happen, but she had a wonderfully happy life, short though it was. And she enriched my life in myriad ways.

Thank You God, for letting me know this dog for awhile.

MO.....So sorry to read about Mandy. She was a sweet dog. We had the privilege of meeting her in July, last summer. Always enjoyed reading about her and Buddy and their many adventures and 'hunts' around the farm. She will be missed. Yes,.....Rest In Peace, Sweet Mandy

Dear Mosie, I've tried repeated times to leave you a comment but AOL is acting up...hopefully this one will go through.
Please accept my condolences re your sweet Mandy, she now joins many of our beloved pets who have gone on ahead. She was loved & taken good care of, & in return she gave your family much love & many happy memories.
I left a little post in my furr babies journal about her!
Blessings to your family & may God Bless.

I am so sorry Mosie. Mandy had a wonderful life and no owner could have been better than you.  I know everyone and Buddy will miss her terribly :(  .

madcobug said...

OHHH! I hate that. She was such a sweet dog. She will be missed by all of us here in J-land as well as all of you including Buddy. I am thinking he will go around sad looking  for a long time. I know how much you loved her. I am so sorry.
Hugs, Helen

I am so crying right now.  At first when I saw this I thought maybe it was another dog you had previously.  I can not find the words right now.  I am so sad.  I know how much you loved her.  Just like my Tiny.  I just wish I could give you and Cliff a big hug right now...I am so upset. Barbara

I'm so very sorry to hear of your losing Mandy, I'm here via Sugars journal. Hope Buddy won't get too lonely. Jeannette.

longsumernite said...

I came from Sugars Furr babies journal, saw there what had happened on her site. Wanted to say I'm sorry. We are thinking of you in your time of loss.

ksquester said...

Donna, I am so very sorry. That word "sorry" just doesn't seem to convey the depth of my sympathy. She was a lucky dog to have you in her life and vise-versa.  I am just sick over this accident. I hope you are OK Donna.  I just can't believe we won't be seeing anymore Mandy pictures and hear the stories.  Anne

I came from Sugars journal...I am terribly sorry for the loss of your family member Mandy..I know the pain you must be going thru.I have lost 2 in the last few years.1 was hit and killed and 1 died of old age..Then my Ms Daisy I have now was hit and lucky she survived..But it was enormous nursing her back to health. And its a terrible thing that some people dont even try to keep from hitting them.You and Mandy are in my prayers.

God bless your Mandy.  I found you through Sugar of Fur Babies.  Having recently lost a dog of my own, I know how you feel.  I am attempting to write his story in his own words so to speak.  There is a link on my journal if you are interested.  My thoughts are with you.
