Losses Happen

The Two of Us!

As you probably  heard, my old dog was put to sleep on Oct 11, 2016. I was concerned  for Raein at first, but I believe she knew he was sick and is taking  it quite well.

She has been my backbone  for this past week. I strongly recommend always to have two dogs. When one gets sick you have another one to cry on. Raein even might like  it better now that she is the only dog and can get all the attention for herself. Lol Raein and I have been back at running this past week also. We haven’t  been out due to a sick dog but things are looking better. Thank you for a dog that needs attention. Because she is soaking it all up right now. Lol

Dear Shelli

We have known each other for some time. I don’t remember exactly how many years ago you got Raein from us–some time ago, though. At the time, you needed a running partner. The two of you have run more than a few miles. I always worry about the Weimaraner holding up to the long distance running, but amazingly they seem to do it. They are prone to ACL tears and joint damage just like their human counterparts. I always recommend insurance to cover such an issue because the cost is in the thousands. We have heard of people putting down their running companions because they could not afford the surgery. Oh my gosh–so sad.

Anyhow–for now the two of you back to running. The memories of your departed family member are fresh on your mind. It seems running in honor of Riley is a good thing. We send our heartfelt condolences (and I believe we also posted on Facebook–but that is less personal). There simply are no adequate words to cover such a loss. Our hearts go out to you and Raein. You have each other during this time and it is a good thing.
