In Memory of Wally Dog - 3/3/2010

This has been one of my hardest posts to write.  I actually have been working on it for over a week, just trying to get it perfect for the most perfect fur-kid. 

March 3, 2010

My BFF (Amy) called me last night (3/4) to let me know that her Wally was set free of pain and discomfort yesterday afternoon (3/3). She had to help her Wally Dog cross to the Rainbow Bridge.

Amy found Wally has a stray and took him in made him part of her family 13 years ago.  She loved him with all her heart.  When Wally was 11 he was diagnosed with a bad case of hip dysplasia, but Amy was determined Wally could overcome it. She enrolled him in some Eastern style treatments and was doing amazing that he could get up on his own walk around the yard and even enjoy some swimming.   She truly gave Wally a new lease on life and was able to enjoy him for another 2 years.  Amy was so dedicated to making sure Wally had the best care anyone could wish for. He was such a trooper and loved his Mommy with all his heart.

It was such an honor to have the privilege to meet Wally 4 years ago after finding my BFF, through lots of dog stories and drama. Wally leaves a huge empty space not only in Amy’s heart, but her husbands, Minnie (her fur-sister) and especially mine.  I am sure Amy’s house is a little more quite since she has experienced two losses in less than a year.  Wally's heart was so big and he never met a stranger he didn't like.  When I would go to Amy's house Minnie would be running circles around you, jumping like a wild child.  But then you would look out of the corner of your eye and there is Wally just standing their so patient with his toy in his mouth.

Here are some pictures of Wally Dog and as you can see he could melt anyone's heart.  If you are wondering what Wally always seemed to be so focused on in every picture.  It is Mommy, Wally never ever lost sight of his Mommy at anytime.
Amy I am so sorry for your loss and my heart has been heavy for you.  You know I am here for you and always remember.  We must let our fur-babies go at some point but, we must also let them go with dignity and I believe you allowed Wally that today.  I am sure Wally is running with Reba, Little White Dog, Precious and Elliott.  Also swimming life vest free and jumping off the docks.  The night sky will be a little brighter now with a shining star like, Wally.

  1. Thanks to you Sherri, I have even more memories of my beautiful boy. I appreciate that you realized how special he was. He will be missed by many. Thank you for taking the time to memorialize my boy in such a special way. He is now with all his special friends (running, swimming and jumping!) and they ARE waiting for the day that they will be reunited with us!

    Your BFF
