Anna, I'm so sorry for your loss. Pets are such a part of the family and it's so hard to see them leave us. We are fighting the same thing with our 11 year old dalmatian. I hope we have your strength and know when it's time to say goodbye.


My deepest sympathies to you and yours. I know how difficult it is to say good-bye to a loyal friend and companion. She sure was a beautiful dog, and it sounds like you took very good care of her, and vise versa.

A fellow animal lover,

Dollie Mae will be forever in your heart. She looks like an absolute sweetheart. I wish I could have met her to snuggle her. My Tucker says he'll send some doggy love her way in heaven.

Take care.

Even though your pain is great now, it is a very loving thing you have done for your pet who lives forever in your heart and memory. A dog lover always...

I am so sorry. I know how really hard losing a loved one is. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Anna, my deepest sympathy on your loss. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Many, many hugs.

Oh Anna! I am so sorry to hear about Dottie Mae. Sending you hugs and hoping that you are doing okay.

What a beautiful girl. I am so sorry, Anna. :0)

Anna, I'm so sorry for your loss. Many blessings to you as you go thru this time.

So sorry for your loss. My heart is with you and your friend!

So sorry for your loss!!! ((((HUGS))).

(((HUGS))) Anna! So sorry to hear about your loss. Your last sentence had me in tears.

Anna, My heart goes out to you. It is so difficult to lose a pet. What a good long life Dollie Mae had though. You've probably seen this little poem on a stamp, but I include it here in the hope that it brings you comfort. Hugs to you...

"fluffy beds and endless treats, gates to guard and friends to meet, long slow walks and petting hands, safe with God in dog heaven"

I have been in this situation many times and always hold my babies to the end so the breath they take stays a part of me-to live on forever. I have my little garden for them too. As a fur parent, you made the right decision but it takes a heap of courage each time, doesn't it?

Beautiful Dollie-will you go running with Clancy, Fletch and the others for me and tell them I miss them? And can they send some common sense down for Jackson-thier nutso brother? He could use one of you as a guardian angel right about now. Be well in the clouds pretty girl.

Anna, you and Alan made a courageous and compassionate decision to let DollieMae go home. It is one of the most difficult decisions we have to make in our lifetime when our pets are so very important to us.

Oh, Anna - I am so sorry. She is such a beautiful girl...you will miss her - so much to hug!! We are so thankful for our dogs (we've had to have three put down in the 40 years we've been married) and I know the girls we have now won't last forever - in fact our beloved Springer, Stormie, had a huge tumor removed last year, and now she has gotten so fat and waddles. I know she doesn't have too many years left, and our older border Terrier, Angel, was 7 mos old when she had Parvo...so that was touch and go...she's 10 now - a miracle. They are so sweet. But we keep replacing them because we love dogs so much. Dogs rule! You will have wonderful memories of sweet DollieMae, and many, many beautiful photos, I know! God bless you and Alan...xoxo from (snowy again) Idaho - Jeanne

So sorry to hear about your loss. It is never easy and words sometimes aren't enough. She is gone, but I am sure she will not be forgotten.

Oh Anna. I know how you are feeling right now, unfortunately. That's an amazingly long life for a Great Pyrenees. She must have really loved her family and home (and work), because she stayed a very long time. Just as a point of trivia, my breed, the Briard, is the only other breed also known for the double dew claws on their hind legs. They're not listed as one of the relatives on your link, but I'm sure they are somewhere way back when. My deepest sympathies to you and Alan. Linda

We raise sheep and cattle and have had several Great Pyrennes as guard dogs. I love these gentle dogs. They have a quiet beauty about them..
Your's was a beauty... May she always guard your home...
Peace be with your family...

My heart goes out to you, Anna. I love my dog. I have lost pets before so I know how much you'll miss your sweet DollieMae. God Bless her.

{{{{Anna}}}} I'm so sorry. :(

Sorry to hear of your loss , but thank you for being a compassionate enough person to ease her pain . Fourteen years is a good long life for a big dog ...What a beautiful photo ! Blessings to you and Alan.

So very, very sad. I'm sure you are feeling that tonight. It's so hard to lose a beloved pet.



Oh gosh Anna,
So sorry to hear about your loss but you did the right thing not letting her suffer.

Sniff Sniff...I'm so sorry!!!

Anna losing a pet is such a difficult thing and my heart goes out to you. These Great Pyrenees are such great dogs, very loving and devoted. Blessings.

Anna, so sorry to hear about your loss. I've gone through this and know how hard it is. Hugs to you all.


Oh Anna, I'm so sorry that she had to be laid to rest...I feel for you and Alan. It's so hard to lose our furry friends. I'm glad Dollie Mae had a long, happy life...I'll be thinking about you all with much sympathy. Hugs to you...

How sad for you. We had a dog for 17 years, and it was hard to have to make that decision to let her go. Sounds like Dollie Mae had a really good life with your family and will be missed.
