A Very Sad Day On The Farm


We don't know what happened, but we are very sad. Dixie, our pup, was out playing this evening with the other dogs. She was having fun and running and jumping. Michael saw her laying in the driveway. She made a pathetic whine and then quit breathing. Our little Dixie Darlin' is dead. We know you are not supposed to get attached too much to animals, but we love our dogs and they are like part of our family. She had the cutest personality. She was not even 1 year old yet.

Oh Marci! I am so sorry. I know how dogs can become a big part of your life. I actually lost my dog when I was in high school too(he appeared to be perfectly fine as well.) ((((HUGS))))

You and your family must be overwhelmed with grief right now. This is such a shock. I am so sorry for your loss. I've enjoyed so much your posts about Dixie ever since you got her as a puppy. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. God bless you and comfort you in your sorrow.

I feel so badly for you. We've lost our share of animals, but if we ever lose our German Shepherd, it will really be tough. Love, Lynn

I can't even express just how sorry I am about Dixie. I know you loved her so very much and you were a good "mama" to her.
Hugs,

Marci, I am truly so very sorry. I know how hard it is. When we lost our beloved Zeke two years ago our hearts were broken and he was an old dog. I cannot imagine the shock of losing a puppy.
Prayers for comfort will be said for you and your family.

Marci, I have been reading your blogs for several months now, and I enjoy them very much! Thank You! I'm sorry for your loss...My first thought was your post (a couple of posts back) about Star acting strange, and being very clingy...and I can't help but wonder if she knew something was going on with Star, and she couldn't quite get her point across. Just a thought, you would be surprised at the things dogs can sense.

I'm so sad for you! You have my sympathies. Dogs have a way of wiggling into our hearts.
