Zoe, My Heart Dog.

Zoe, a 17-year-old Cockapoo, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this past week. She was the Perfect Pup, never wanting for anything. Her goal in life, every day, was to just be by my side.

Thank you to DocB and her tech, Wren, both with Helping Hands Pet Hospice for your assistance and reassurance. Thank you to Joyce with Natures Pet Loss, who kindly took Zoe’s body for aquamation. Also, thank you to the staff at Medicine River Animal Hospital who always took such good care of Zoe as a senior dog. And, a special thanks to Jennifer at Pet Styles By Jennifer in Dunedin for your kind words.

Zoe was my shadow, and there is an emptiness, for sure. But, she was the happiest dog I’d ever had the pleasure of loving, so it will be easy to remember what a joy she was.

  1. I am so very sorry Anna. I know you are the best dog parent ever. It is so hard to lose them but what a wonderful life Zoe had with you.

  2. Anna, Paul and I are so sorry about Zoe. I know what you mean about a “heart” dog. I also have one. I can only imagine how much you miss her. Our precious pets don’t live long enough but leave such an empty place when they are gone. Our hearts break for you and we understand your pain. Take care and know we are thinking about you. Paul, Candace, Crystal, Lacey, Bear, Tucker and Ella.

  3. Oh , I’m so sorry to hear this. It almost seems unbearable when we lose a furbaby. Live will go on but never be the same. Hugs from Molly & Joey ! Date: Sat, 28 Nov 2015 14:32:56 +0000 To: carolsjeep@hotmail.com
