Sweet Zoe....

Hello everyone - its Destiny's DogMa Cilly...

When I started this blog for Destiny, a lovely girl named Staci befriended me. She is the DogMa to an adorable border collie Addie, a baby puppy Lucie, and a sweet red-head - Zoe.

Zoe had heart and renal problems, but like Destiny - she was a little fighter. She loved her family, her doggie sibblings, and she loved life.

Zoe passed this morning in her Momma's arms. My heart is breaking because her story is much like Destiny - she got ill in April 2008, her Momma took wonderful care of her, and she romped and played with her puppy pals... she did the very best she could. She had a sister go before her - K-8, so she had a furry friend waiting for her on the other side.

Please give Staci some cyber hugs. DogMa's need lots of love and understanding. I wish more people understood that this is like losing a child, we need time to mourn, we need people to understand that these arent "just dogs" or "just pets"... they are our babies... their blessings are just compacted into much shorter years.

Rest sweetly little red-headed Zoe...
Cilly and Destiny

Thank you so much for your post.

I has been a sleepless tear-filled day.

I know she is having a blast telling K-8 all about Addie and Lucie. And that they are both laughing about Addie peeing on our bed.

Words can't express how much your kind words mean to me.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Destiny.

Lots of Love and Kisses
Staci, Addie, Lucie

We are so sorry to hear about Zoe. We did not know her but that doesn't matter. We are sad anyway.

We know how sad and painful it is to lose one of our furkids. They are truly a part of our family. The people on DWB's understand that.

Take care,
Casper, Buddy, Nikki and Momma (Gwyn)

I was at Addie's blog this morning and was shocked to read the news about Zoe... it's too unexpected.
Our mom totally agrees with your DogMa.. we are not just 'animals' or 'pets'... we are family.

We is sorry that yet another soul is leaving us for The Bridge. We will dedicate our howls at the sky tonight to Zoe and hope that she is frolicing with all our friends at The bridge.

So much the loss of a pet affects us. It's so sad and so hard. I have left my condolences for Zoe over at Raising Addie.
