Goodbye Spruce   13 comments

Yesterday our dear little Sprucie, a 9-year-old German Shepherd and retired guide dog who was with us only 15 months, passed away rather suddenly. I will miss her tail thumping against furniture to express her happiness, the sound of her trotting to the door to see who’s there, the long walks we took together along the beach, and her dopey smile. Here are the last pictures of her. I love you, Spruce!

  1. So sorry for your loss…xx

  2. Awwwwe. 😦

  3. So sorry that you lost your buddy. Our furry friends never live long enough and leave such a hole when they go. 😦

  4. Ah…hugs and loves for Sprucie and you

  5. I’m so sorry for your loss.

  6. Oh, Lutz … I’m so sorry to read your sad news. I do hope your happy memories of Spruce will bring some comfort, along with the knowledge that Sprucie felt loved every single day she spent with you.

  7. Never easy to say goodbye regardless of how long they have been your companion…

  8. What a characterful face – she was so luck to have spent her last year or so with you guys. You truly are amazing the way you take on the retirement phase of these dogs lives. I hope someone looks after me that well when I retire!!!
    Mourn and move on. So hard but it’s the only way to go. I cannot imagine losing Ryder.
