BlackDog Passed Away (Personal)

BlackDog, aka Katie, passed away from a long illness this morning. She loved barking, peeing on things, the snow, chicken from the can, t-shirts for dogs, and drive-thru windows.

She hated hats, people with backpacks, hair bows, and anyone in cowboy boots.

She outlived both original owners.
Survived a hip replacement and lived two years longer than she should have with congestive heart failure.

She was a pill. Always did what she wanted when she wanted and ignored me totally.

She'll be missed.


  1. At this point I won't venture to go further than this...*hug*

  2. So sorry about your doggie. Very cute pic.

    Jeni ;)

  3. I'm really sorry to hear this. You've talked about her before. It makes me sad when animals die.


  4. What a cutie! Sorry for your loss, it sounds like she lived a full, happy, and well-loved life.


  5. Oh my God Bunny. I'm so sorry. I know you loved to hate her and I know you'll miss her. :-)

  6. I'm so sorry for your loss, and hope you take it easy and give yourself time to work through the grieving process. Pooches are family members, and I'll know she'll be missed.

  7. I'm sorry Tirzah. I just read something you wrote around Christmas time about Blackdog and the ongoing vet visits. I guess it was their time to go up to doggie heaven and play free and young again. xxx

  8. TirzahLaughs Hello, I am returning your visit to my blog, I'm glad you enjoyed it and I hope to visit more often, I was delighted with his blog and is an honor to follow him and do not bother to send in another language may be in English same ...

  9. What can I say? To say I'm sorry for your loss seems too lame but truly I am, my heart goes out to you.

  10. Wow. Katie can win a "I can't say no to you" award. She's entirely adorable and she sounds really comically sweet. I'm sorry she's passed.

    I remember when Babe passed and we would call her little Piggy and when we fed her pork, we would tell her to stop eating her own kind. Cannibal pup.

    It sounds like you've been through a lot with her and I hope you get through this. :)

  11. So sorry, Tirz. :( Wow .. sounds like a little spitfire. I'm sure you'll miss her peeing on people with backbacks. ~Cat~

  12. I'm so sorry, Tirz. Losing an animal makes me cry.
