Me and My Shadow


Presentiment is that long shadow on the lawn
Indicative that suns go down;
The notice to the startled grass
That darkness is about to pass.
-Emily Dickinson


After fourteen years and seven months
we said goodbye to our Lulu.
She will live in our hearts forever.

Oh, Holly...I am so sorry. I've been through this before, and the feeling is just hard to put into words. How wonderful to have have over 14 years with such a precious life. May you hold onto each and every special memory to get you through this time of loss. I'll be thinking of you!

Oh, poor Lulu! I had to put my yellow lab to sleep about 5 years ago and it was devastating, so sorry for your loss.

HOOOLS and BUZZ- OMG this pic looks so much like Bear, they are together again! I am so sorry- pets deaths are sometimes sadder than people because there are no mixed emotions, pets just love you and thats it!! I am so sorry.

Holly, I am so sorry aboutr your dog.
If it is any consolation she lived to an extaordinary age for a lab, you must have given her an amazingly good life.
I beleive that all life goes on, she must miss you too and will be waiting just beyond the veil.
There have been so many animal losses for me, to many to even count. I lost two of them today.
You obviously have much love to give, get another friend as soon as possible.
hugs to you,
maren

We will miss our sweet Lulu. She was such a love from the moment she came into our lives to the last visit. She was blessed to have a long dog-life, to live in such a beautiful place, and to be cared for by two of the kindest souls. You have created such lovely memories of her in all your wonderful photographs. We send you our hugs, always,

I am so sorry. Our lab is 12 and she is fading. So hard to see. We took a portrait of her at the park so we could give to our son for his 18th birthday. He loved it and she looked regal.
