At the end of the day what was wrong with River was everything: Fluid in the lungs, in the stomach, fluid in the heart, and very high kidney levels. I think she loved us so hard, with such ferocity, that she used up her heartbeats.
Thank you for your love and support.
We might take some time from social media. It is the first time in 26 years we haven't had a dog. We will find a new one, and be back.
Oh my goodness, we are so sorry to read this. Please accept our condolences for your loos of sweet River. Take good care of yourselves at this sad time.ReplyDelete

In yesterday's post you said "no matter what, her angels will be with her" ... sadly, it seems they wanted to keep her with them. Yet we know she is in a good place, though many hearts are hurting today knowing she has left us, yours most of all. Rest well, River Song, you'll enjoy being with those who went on before ... they missed you, now they will take care of you.ReplyDelete
We are so sorry to hear that River Song has crossed the Bridge. She will be missed here but certainly had a wonderful reception on the other side. Our paws are crossed for her pawrents that are left with an empty house.ReplyDelete
Oh I am so very sorry to your loss. Poor little girl just had no more strength. Please accept my sincere condolences. Your grief must be overwhelming. River Song was, and is, so sweet. The love continues on, as you have shown in all of your stories about those who have crossed. Taking a break is totally understandable, as this is extremely difficult to process. Sending lots of love your way during this very sad time. WendyReplyDelete

Please visit your humans in their sleep; they are very sad.
I am so very sorry that River has gone to the Bridge. I know how terribly you miss her, and the loss that you feel. It is one of the hardest things we must bear, when our fur family, who are family in every sense of the word, must leave us though they try so hard to stay and keep us happy and loved.ReplyDelete

I send hugs, love and many purrs to your family. Thank you for all the kindness to all our angels over the years. I am sure you were greeted by all of them OTRB
We are so sorry to hear the devastating news of River’s passing. In your heart even though it is breaking you know you did what was best for her. All of your dogs have been internet stars and I’m sure your new one will also light up the internet. God bless you and Ted and know that you are in my prayers.ReplyDelete
This news has left me in shock and heartbroken as I'm sure so many in Blogville are also feeling right now. This was so sudden and it's always harder to accept when there isn't some of of warning. River was very brave and didn't want her family to know she was so sick. Take comfort in knowing that she is at peace now and with her 2 sisters. Imagine the commotion at the Bridge once they all three get back together. I'm so sorry for this terrible loss your family has had to endure....ReplyDelete
Hugs and Love

I didn't know River Song, but she was clearly a loved and loving little creature. Ten years isn't long enough for a dog to stay, but long enough for her love to stay, forever. Godspeed, River Song.ReplyDelete
