Hey folks, Yesterday morning we said goodbye to Rey the dog. I’ve been keeping you updated from time to time, so most of you know she got diagnosed with cancer in April and spent most of the year getting treated for it. The good news is that for most of the year it worked and we got what I called “Bonus Rey” time. Time to play ball in the backyard. Time to go for walks and say hi to friends. And time to just hang out.
Yep, I have always thought that we get the better end of the deal with dogs. We give them a warm bed, good food, and belly rubs, and in return, they give us their entire heart and soul.
Thank you for sharing this moving celebration of Rey’s life. I’m so sorry for your loss.
So sorry for your loss
Heartbreaking, but such a wonderful story. She gave you her all, and so did you in return. Thanks for sharing and much love.
So sorry for your loss, I know too well that feeling of things just being "off" when they are no longer with us. They are so such a part of the daily.
I'm sure you gave her the best life!
I’m sorry for your loss Tom.
Tom, thank you so much for sharing Rey with all of us fans. I'm so sorry for your loss.
My condolences Tom. I too had to put my dog Noodles down last week. He would have been 8 on Christmas Eve. Blessings to you and your wife in the coming year.
Oh Tom. This is beautiful and heartbreaking. What a good girl. What a sad day. Holding you and Eileen and Sawyer in my heart and hugging my furry friend close. I’m so glad you found each other. ❤️
Thank you for sharing. I'm so sorry for your loss. We have two older dogs with health issues and I wake up everyday wondering if this will be the last for one of them and I go to bed feeling blessed when it isn't. You, Eileen and Sawyer are in my thoughts.
I haven't owned a pet in years so I live vicariously through the people I follow online and their pets. Hearing stories and seeing pics and videos. So I get to see all the happy times, but that means I see the loss as well. So, so sorry for your loss.
My heart goes out to you, Eileen and Sawyer, it’ll be a tough New Year’s for sure. What a beautiful obituary, Tom, thank you for sharing so many of these lovely moments. Rey’s force will be with us, always.
Thank you for sharing Rey's story with us. I realize that I actually didn't know what she looked like until now. Much love to you and the family.
My condolences, sometimes I felt she was part of the show as well, (in a good way).
Condolences on loss of your special doggy Merritt. RIP
Sorry for your loss Tom and Eileen. Best wishes to you both this New Year!
