Until last Sunday, Flyer was a happy, healthy, silly Flat-Coat. Then she had the first of a series of Grand Mal seizures. Her condition declined rapidly over the week. We were hoping an infection of some sort was the cause, but the lab results came back today. There was no infection to treat. We let her go to the Bridge this afternoon.

She was always willing to go anywhere and do anything. She enjoyed conformation, obedience, rally, and flyball. She enjoyed agility as well, but her human wasn't up to the challenge and she never showed. After my stroke, she happily ran flyball for other people until I was able to stand long enough to do it myself. She learned to accomodate my new weird manner of walking once I was able to attempt classes again and earned her RN last spring. She was almost ready to go into Rally Advanced. We will miss her more than words can express.

I'm so sorry to hear the sad news, Zubie. A pet for many (for me) is a member of the family and more in so many ways. It sounds like she had a wonderful time while she was with you, though, so there's some comfort in that. Take care.

I'm so heartbroken. I've been crying off and on since you called. She was the best dog in the land. She was always happy and loving and ready to go. She was a clown who loved to put on a show to make people laugh. She was so sweet to my two cranky dogs, too. I so wish you could have had her a lot longer. I'm heartened by the knowledge that she's free of pain and running like the wind with Zubie, Folly, Sunny, Missy and Karma. EVEREST must be in ECSTASY! The LOVE of his LIFE has arrived! :)

What a terrible shock - my condolences on your loss. Take comfort in the fact that a dog couldn't have been more loved, and you'll always have the memories of the joy you gave each other.

Oh Theresa, I'm just so very sorry! All I can say is that watching your journal before, during, and after your stroke, the steps Flyer made to help make your life a better place were always evident. She was a joy to those of us who never even met her. Few humans can say as much, proof positive that she was a very special soul.

*massive hugs*

I am so, so sorry.

It was clear from every post how wonderful Flyer was and how much you loved her.

We all feel like we've known her a very long time and we've learned to love her through you. We too will mourn her loss. I feel privileged to have known her and I thank you for that. You are not alone. We will all miss her with you too. *hugs*

Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry to hear that. I'm sure she and Jo are frolicking together and trading Stoopid Hooman stories.

I'm sure they are. Flyer often told me I was wrong and showed me how things SHOULD be done, sometimes when we were in the show ring or a class.
