I had Winnie put to sleep this morning. I got her from CDH in August 1998 when she was 8 months old, so she 18.
She was the sweetest, gamest little dog every day that she was alive, and even this morning she went out for a walk and then had ham and eggs for breakfast
I was planning to have her cremated but realized that ashes can never take the place of all my happy memories, so will make a donation to Friends of the Dogs in her name instead. Thanks to CDH for the greatest gift I've ever had.
Aw Winnie looks like a complete bundle of joy. How amazing 18 years old, that''s lots of years of happy memories. Is always a sad time when we lose one of our fur baby companions and my thoughts are with you. What a lovely and thoughtful donation. Sleep tight Winnie 💞💞
oh Winnie, darling little lady, I'm so sad to read this
I had the pleasure and privilege of meeting Winnie a number of times. She kind of reminded me of my Nanna, a tiny little old lady who lived to be 94, always proud, always dignified, and somehow you always knew you were in the presence someone very special. There was just something about her...
Rest easy Winnie, sleep peacefully, knowing how much joy you brought to your beloved mamma. Please tell our bridge babies we miss them all very much, and we will never forget them. They have all left a legacy, heartbreaking loss, but sweet sweet memories.... Inconsolable grief is the price we pay for the years of happiness that only a dog's love can bring.
Amazingly, Susie, Winnie was named after MY Nan, who lived to 101 In her last few years she reminded me so much of Nan - a bit blind and deaf, a bit confused and wobbly. But her face always lit up to see me. I was incredibly lucky to have them both for so long
