it's been two weeks since our beautiful girl wrigley has gone off to a new adventure. But she would have appreciated all the love and good wishes from strangers. on many levels that is so appropriate. Wrigs had a way to make even non dog lovers love her. And its only appropriate that strangers send her much love. While it isn't hard, and those who have lost their buddy for sure know how hard it is, we are so grateful to everyone's well wishes. this experience has been tough, profound and an epiphany for me personally. While i've never been one to delve too much in emotion, I think wrigley's purpose here was to unlock that in me. I think her time, albeit short, had a purpose . . . to unlock many personal issues i've neglected for many years. I thank wrigs for that and while I miss her everyday, i have her memory of being such a sweet buddy and will see her when my time comes.

I haven't been on Dogster in months and months and today when I got back on I clicked on Wrigley's profile because she was a friend of Menemsha. I couldn't believe I read the words "In loving memory" because I do remember reading about Wrigley and thinking how much she was like my yellow lab. I can totally relate to how you felt about Wrigley as I feel so strong for my Menemsha. I am so sorry for your loss. She left this earth much too early. My Menemsha is 5.5 years old and it is strange to see that she isn't as energetic as she was and her elbows are losing their hair and she even has a fatty deposit (cyst) that I am told not to worry about. I am thankful to have her in my life as you were Wrigley. Your story made me cry. I think that the bond between a dog and human is undescribable unless you are that dog and human. They give so much and don't expect anything in return. I cried when I read the part about Wrigley wagging her tail and wiggling her butt because that is what I love most about my lab. I could be haivng the worst day and when I come home to that wiggle nothing else matters. She makes me so happy and brings something to my life that I NEVER had. Enough about me. I just wanted to say that I understand everything you said about your lab. They are truly the most amazing breed and the most adaptable to the human household. I can say that I can only imagine what you had to go through when she was sick and I have no idea how I will get through that when the time comes. So sorry for you and your wifes loss and I hope your hearts heal a bit. I know you will never forget Wrigley. Rest in peace Wrigley.
I'm so sorry that you lost your friend. She looks like our pup...Milli. How does a dog get cancer at the age of 6...Yikes. That's too soon to lose your best friend.

Thanks for your note. They do look alike! I know, we were crushed and baffled how a dog could get cancer so early in life. It's way too soon for us to have lost our Wrigley. It's actually a year ago when we had to let her go. It gets easier -- goes from real sadness to fond memories on what a great doggie she was!
