Brownie, 1994-2009, R.I.P. This is my first post. It’s dedicated to Brownie Dagmar, our family dog for 15 years. We had to put her down Aug. 29 of last year to stop her suffering from cancer. She grew up with our four kids, who were then aged 5, 7, 9, and 11. For 15 years, Brownie gave us unconditional love, fierce protection of the family and the property, and unlimited kisses. She would smile at us when we got home! There is nothing in the world like a good dog. We were blessed. Yes, it still hurts. We now have Bonnie, who will be 7 months old Thursday, and she has won our hearts. She is canned energy, and very happy and affectionate. Three out of four of my kids went with us to pick out the puppy. We almost recreated the 1994 scenario. Thanks for a very nice message board! Vic

Hi, Vic, and welcome to the boards, although I'm sorry we are "meeting" on a sad topic. Brownie was a beautiful girl, and it sounds like she had a full and happy life with your family. You were all lucky to have fifteen years together, but I know it's never enough time. I am glad you have added Bonnie to your family and that she is being such a charmer.

Brownie was beautiful! And it sounds like she was a perfect fit in your family. Like Angie said, no matter how long we have them, it is never enough. We will always wish we had just one more day with them. But the memories you have of your special girl are priceless. Thanks for sharing such a nice tribute. I am very sorry for your loss.
