Lindy says goodbye


I don't know how many times I've posted photos of our beloved dog Lindy. Dozens, for sure, and many more.
I might post old photos of her again,
but there will be no new ones.

Lindy Davies-Schear left us last week
after a brief but incurable illness.
Her veterinarian came to the house
and told us what we already knew:
there was no hope of recovery from kidney failure.
We will be forever grateful
that we had the opportunity to adopt
our wonderful girl, because she has changed our lives forever.
She was sweet, pretty, fun, amusing...and kind:
Lindy didn't have a mean bone in her body.

I am sharing this post with Lady Fi's wonderful, dog-full meme

Our World Tuesday

It is sad to lose someone you love so much. The real shame is that their lives are so short in comparison to ours. For a few years, you've been loved unconditionally, a marvelous miracle.

Run free beautiful girl. You will be sadly missed. Hugs to you both .... So hard to let go of a dear friend.

Oh dear Kay . I am so very sorry. She is in a better place now, not suffering, but that does not make it easier for you. Not yet. I loved reading Lindy stories. She had such personality and the prettiest fur coat I've ever seen. One of our sons had a Golden and I loved him too, but Lindy really was prettier (don't tell my child I said so). Thank you for sharing all of her story. My thoughts are with you.

So sorry about the loss of your dog. We love our dogs and they just don't live long enough. They add so much to our lives.

I will miss your Lindy-girl, she was a sweetheart. She was a happy girl, life got it right when it brought you three together.

So sorry to hear this sad news. Lindy was such a beautiful dog and wonderful character. She is now at Rainbow Bridge and you will meet again xxxx

Sympathies in your loss. Goldens are such glorious companions. May Lindy rest in peace.

I'm still shedding tears for Lindy. What a lovely girl - and what a lovely life you gave her.

You have me bawling. I enjoyed her company when I DID visit....she will be sorely missed.

I send you virtual hugs across the miles. It's so difficult to be left behind.

Oh dear Kay and Richard. Still so heart-sore when I read again of Lindy's passing. Bless you for giving her the best life a doggie can have. Hugs Jo

Lovely Lindy loved by all, especially you two. I was so glad to meet her during your trip back to BC. Best personality ever … humans would do well to follow her canine sense of kindness. Her presence will live on in your hearts for years to come.

Hello, Kay! Sorry, I almost missed this post. I knew about Lindy from facebook. I know how you feel because I went through the same with the loss of my Goldie Girl. I hope you have many happy memories of Lindy. She was a pretty Golden, they are the best dogs. HUGS!

Ruth Rieckehoff said...

So sorry to hear about your lose. One of my dogs died of heart failure. She passed away in a matter of hours after the attach. Wish you the best. #OurWorldTuesday

Tutti noi ricorderemo per sempre questo splendido cane...
E' stato bello poter vedere le sue foto e vedere la sua vita al di là dell'oceano...
Ed è stato bello pensare che è stata una amica ddel mio Igor, anche se molti Km li separavano.
Un grande abbraccio.
