    You came to us by coincidence, i.e. you found me and your new, safe family as a stray in 2002.

    We were fortunate enough that you made that decision to be there 'at the right time, and place'.

    I thank you for having been a wonderful member of our family and I am too tired to say more at the moment, except that you were deeply loved and that no vet here or in the your old haunts in the U.S. could have fixed the the issues at hand.

    RIP, my sweet girl.

    Thank you for reading about her and for your kind words.

    Espe was immensely loved and is immensely missed. There is an odd, haunting silence in the house - her gentle, steadfast and kind spirit is gone. OK, so is her 'goofiness', which brought chuckles and adds to the many memories we have.

    It is very strange for us to now be a 'one dog' only family. We used to have a canine trio, then two, now Trusty is the lone survivor.

    He has always been a relatively calm dog, but he seems even quieter now ... but perhaps I am projecting my grief on him.

    And here is one of my favorite pics of her, taken in 2006 in Carmel, CA:

    I am so sorry Madeleinemom, I remember Espe well from old days on PBF. She was a lovely dog and I am sorry you lost her. They take a piece of your heart with them when they go, I lost my old girl in January. You can't ask for a better friend and companion. I remember she was a skinny little thing when you got her, and she blossomed into such a beautiful girl.

    RIP Espe, you were a good girl and will be missed. Hugs to you and to Trusty, I hope you are doing ok…

    It has been a year today. The sorrow now blends more with fond and amusing memories.

    A few days ago, her beloved wicker dog basket finally found a new home, so another rescue dog who might just be a bit too big for it (like she was) will crunch herself into it and snooze peacefully in it.

    Miss you, Espe - hope you are zooming around at the Bridge with Madeleine and all your PBC canine friends, who have passed. Don't kick up too much dust :D it gets everywhere ...

    Funny how that works isn't it. I didn't comment on too many of these before, so I apologize for not offering my sympathy at the time. I do offer it now Madeleinemom with all my heart. I do love how the memories become funny and sweet as the grief lessens. But each and every one we lose leaves a scar on our hearts, one we tolerate in exchange for the love and happiness they gave us.
