I've been putting off making this post, because I am heartbroken, and because sharing the news will make it seem very, very real. But it is real. We have lost our dearest friend and beloved girl, Virginia.



It was such a privilege to have her bright spirit in our lives for almost fourteen years.Collapse )

Oh, Amy. I am so very, very sorry to hear this sad news. I know just how much she meant to you and L.

Virginia was such a huge part of your family and I always loved hearing about her and seeing pictures of her.

She was a blessed dog to have you to love her.

*Hugs*

Thank you so much, my friend. I know that you more than anyone understand what we've gone through. *massive hugs*

As the Vulcans say, "I grieve with thee" -- for both of our precious girls. We were most blessed, weren't we?

I am so very sorry to hear this. Over the years, it came to seem that I knew Virginia, personally. She was a furry, little sprite that ran through your posts, often in costume. I will miss her greatly. I know how terrible your grief must be right now. You, and she, will be in my thoughts.

Thank you so much, my friend. It means a lot. "Furry little sprite" is such an apt description! We were blessed to have her in our lives.

Oh, Virginia. She seemed like the most amazing dog, I've loved your pictures of her, especially her costumes. I'm so so sorry, hon, I know how hard it is to lose a beloved pet.

I can hardly bear to read this! I am positively devastated for you. *hugs you!* Virginia is an irreplaceable, unforgettable light, and I know she'll continue to be with you and bless your lives in memory and spirit. I'm so sorry, Amy!

Thank you, thank you. *hugs you tightly* You're right, she was both irreplaceable and unforgettable, and we're still taking things day to day, trying to come to terms with her absence. But you're also very wise in saying that her memory is and will remain a blessing. *more hugs*

I am so sorry. She was such an incredible dog with such an intelligent expression. It hurts so much when they leave us.

Thank you so much for understanding! Epic amounts of sobbing indeed. You're so right: she was the perfect best friend, and being one of her humans was one of the most profound and beautiful relationships I've ever had. *huge hugs back*

Oh, no. Oh, no, no, NO. :( I'm crying as I type this. She was a bright spot in my life, and I know she was the light of yours. :( At least she had a happy life, loved and nurtured with you. I'm so sorry. *hugs hugs sympathetic snugs*

Oh, Amy. I am so horribly sorry. There is no loss quite like the loss of a dog . . . but you gave her all the best, always.
