Lost my sweet angel yesterday morning

Hey forum, it's been a long time since I've been back here, life has been pretty busy the past number of years. I wanted to give you guys a heads up that I lost my angel at almost 14 years yesterday morning in her sleep beside me. She has been on a major roller coaster since January with battling cancer. She passed away snuggled up beside me while sleeping, which is exactly where she's been every night but 4 nights for the last 10 years since this forum helped bring the light of my life to me after loosing my first doberman.

I'm not exactly sure how to get by my day to day without her, a huge piece of me died with her, and yesterday morning was the first morning I came home and she wasn't laying on the bed waiting for me. It was crushing. I know if there's one thing I can country on is you guys to help me through this dark time in my life and help me hopefully bring another angel to rescue, like I did Athena. Actually, we rescued each other. She got me through some really dark times in my life, and I ALWAYS gave her the best of everything to thank her for it.

I made a tribute video to her I want to share of us over the years. I cry my eyes out every time I watch it. I thought the song was very fitting to how I feel.....one more day with her is all I want.

Thank you guys for you've done for me over the years, we really have the best community.

I'm very sorry for your loss.



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader. She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

I am so sorry for your loss. You video captured beautifully how we feel about these wonderful dogs. Yes, it set my morning off in tears, too. You two seemed perfect for each other. How luck she was you found her and how lucky for you to know her love. Thank you for sharing. My thoughts and sympathy are with you today.

Such an unconditional bond of True Love !!

Athena was gifted a remarkable rescued Life & she took this comforting gift, with her to Heaven.

Your Angel knew she was treated very special, and still wants to easy her Daddy's pain.

I am so very sorry.
