    Hey guys I just wanted to let you all know that I lost my sweet Pinky this morning. During the night Monday she woke me up crying out and whimpering. She had lost all control of her bowels and was barely able to walk. I called her vet at 3 am and ended up taking her into his office at 5 am after running several tests we knew right away that she had kidney and liver failure. My family and I spent most of the day yesterday with her praying and hoping for a miracle. But sadly Pinky's condition worsened and I had to make the decision to have her PTS. It was the hardest decision I have ever had to make. But I know in my heart that Pinky was happy and she knew how much she was loved. My last and final gesture to her was hand to cheek which means kiss. She kissed me and my husband good-bye and silently drifted away. For those of you who read this and didn't know of Pinky she was deaf but even with her disability she was still an amazing smart, sweet & loving dog. Pinky was a true ambassador of the breed. My heart is broken and I am finding Pinky's passing very hard to handle. I believe strongly in God and I know all things happen for a reason but how do you explain to three heart broken children how or why God took Pinky so soon after losing Izzy? I can't stop crying even my husband needed time alone today to cry and grieve for Pinky. Most of you all know how special Pinky was to me she was a very special dog. We buried Pinky in our yard this afternoon next to Izzy. Thankfully it was a bright sun shiny day. Pinkys bells which she wore around her neck when she was a baby (used to locate her if she were to wonder off) are now hanging on my office door as a constant reminder of the love and happiness she brought into my life. Every year my husband and I make a donation to the "Tree of Life Foundation" a charity which caters to underprivileged children in our area so this year we are making the donation in Pinky's name. Pinky was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.

    I am so sorry Gina, I just don't know what to say or do, this is such an incredibly difficult time for you, I know your dogs are all very important, but Pinky was the most special, she was such a beautiful and smart dog, not many dogs could brave all the thigs she has. Izyy was a wonderful dog too, It is just such a pity you had to lose both of them so close together. Maybe you can tell the kids that God wanted Pinky to be able to hear him or something? That is always difficult, I wish you the best of luck and hugs and kisses to you and your family!!

    I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am. Pinky was a very special little girl that I always brought up in conversation when talking about special pitties. She definitely left her little paw print on my heart.

    Goodbye Sweet Pinky.

    I am so so sorry Gina. I'm crying reading your post. Your love for Pinky is flowing through an inanimate machine, I can only imagine what Pinky felt coming from you in person. How lucky you both were to have that special love and bond. For whatever time God granted. And now she is a whole perfect girl again in heaven. Hearing all of her family cry out their love and grief for her. What a beautiful gift you and Pinky gave to one another. I envy how strongly you feel her loss, it shows how deeply you loved her.

    She was an amazing, special, bright, beautiful girl. Who was loved and blessed with a family who shared her own qualities and recognized them in her despite her disability.

    Bless you Gina and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all as well as Pinky. May God grant all of you the peace and contentment that he has gifted to Pinky.

    I am so sorry to hear this, Gina!! I had hoped you and Pinky would have more time together. At least she passed quickly and in the company of those who loved her. It will be a source of comfort to you knowing that much at least.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Gina, I am crying for your loss, she was such a special girl. Even though Izzy and Pinky were with you a short time they were deeply loved and taken care of by you and you family and in their own way showed you love and compassion in return.

    OH Gina. I'm sooo soooo soo sorry. To you and your family you have my deepest condolences.

    Pinky was great. I know she had her moments, but despite all her obsticles you helped her overcome, you never gave up. YOu loved her and every one of us knows that you along with her are very special.

    Don't grieve for her loss. Celebrate the life she lived, and the wonderful home you gave her. Had it been anyone else, I doubt they would have gone to the lenghts you did to help her.

    We all love you, and we're all here for you. Perhaps God has something up his sleeve for you? I have a gut feeling something great is coming your way.

    Let me know if you need anything.....

    Gina, maybe you could tell your kids that God wanted Pinky and Izzy to be together... maybe that will help?
    Just a thought.
    Goodluck with helping them to understand and trying to make it a bit easier.

    Gina, I am so very very sorry for you and your families loss!! I cried reading your post and thought of how I would feel if it was one of my furbabies!! Try to remember how wonderful Pinky was and that will help you through her passing. Take care, draw your family close, and love eachother an extra bunch!! Maybe it would help the kids (and you) to make a special Christmas ornament for the tree to remember Pinky and Izzy, that way you can take it out every year and remember again how special they both were.

    Gina, I am so sorry to hear this horrible news. I just read about Sarges' death and now to read this, I am in shambles in my office. You made the right decision and know she is with Izzy now and is safe. My thoughts are with you and your family in this trying time.
