So sorry for your loss. May you be comforted by all the wonderful memories of times together at home and afield.

Craig, sorry for your loss. Saying goodby to a special dog that you have spent so many memorable moments with over the years is one of the hardest things a bird hunter has too so.
RIP Lucy

What a fine looking pup and built for sliding through thick cover and choppy water! I'll bet you have some great memories with her. Thoughts are with you and family.

It's a sad day when you have to make the decision but Lucy didn't suffer which she deserved. She was born and bred to be a bird dog and fulfilled that role with style and heart. Bird dogs have a special place in my heart and I will miss her very much , we had so many good times together. Thanks all for the kind words.

What a beautiful girl. I know the pain of loss too well, but I also know the beauty of wonderful memories. So very sorry for your loss.

I’m sorry for your loss . Every four legged person we’ve ever had was like a human member of the family be it Border Terrier , Boykin Spaniel or English Setter . When my pop passed he had asked to be cremated and have the three Border Terriers we’d had in the past be buried with him and I carried out his wishes . One of those dogs had been buried three times when she went in the ground with my father . My present Border Terrier is ten and not in the best of health one way or the other when I move to the South Pacific she’ll be with in live form or in ashes .
