Thank you everyone. We miss her so much, more than I could put into words. I think only other dog lovers can possibly relate. So many moments in every day, in so many different ways I think of her. My only comfort is that we gave her a wonderful long life and alot of love and that she went very peacefully and that we all had a chance to say goodbye. I just wish she could have had one more summer.... she loved summers, the warmth, the sunshine, keeping me company in the garden....

Barbara, I am so sorry to hear this news. My heart goes out to you and your family. Your beautiful Mandy will live in your heart forever. Cry and smile and count yourself as one of the lucky ones to know what it's like to share their life with animals. This is a beautiful and sweet portrait. Makes me smile just looking at it. Take care.
