So sad for your loss. She left a big pawprint in your life. ((hug))

Oh Sara. Iris was a funny dog, and I think this may be one of my favorite photos of all time. A dog and a lamb. Perfect. Rest in peace, sweet silly Iris.

Such a lucky dog to have spent her life with you. Sweet, happy dog.

Sara, once again, the mere words "I'm sorry" feel so inadequate but they are all I have.

Oh no. I'm so very sorry.

Good bye, sweet Iris.
God has you in His keeping.

Good-night, good dog. I am honored to have met you; my tears join the others.

I am so sorry, my heart is heavy for you, I know your loss is great. Hope I meet her at The Bridge someday, through your blog and your beautiful photos I love your animals too:(

amyfibre said...

As I always, when I read sad news from you, my heart breaks a little bit. You do such a lovely job of sharing your animals, and all their delightful, quirky personalities, with us, and so my heart breaks...even though I know this is the destiny of all animal lovers, to enjoy and then have to say goodbye. May the pain fade and leave you with only good memories. Yes, she was A Good Dog. Hugs!

Valerie said...

Oh! I'm so sorry! It is so hard to say goodbye to a beloved pup. Sending lots of hugs and comfort your way.

Tammy said...

I'm so sorry. It's so hard to see them go.

Take care,
Tammy

I'm so sorry. It's so sad and difficult to say goodbye.

Tombstone Livestock said...

Oh Sara, so sorry to hear it. Great picture to remember her by. Hope to see some Border Collie puppy pictures soon. I have had BC's since 1989 can't imagine life without one.

Gloria said...

Oh, Sara, I am so sorry. It is so hard to lose our critters. Thank you for sharing Iris and all of the others with us. They capture our hearts through your photos so we share a little in your loss.
She had a good life with you. My condolences to you and Tim.

Fiona said...

God Bless her...she will be in Border Collie Heaven...with obedient sheep and Adventure chickens who don't wander off.
My thought are with you. There is an Ian Tyson Song called "Casey's Gone" That I play just to remind me of all the wonderful things about farm dogs.

Be at peace my friend.

I'm sorry about Iris. Thank you so much for sharing her stories with us. Blessings on you, your family (furry and not), and Sweet Iris.

Lori Skoog said...

You didn't tell me! Of course Miss Tilly needs to come to the farm.

Shirley said...

Awwww so sorry! Dogs are with us for so short a time, but they loom large in our hearts. My Reba is the same age and now has tumours, so I am treasuring every day I have with her.

majorasue said...

So very sorry. I hope that you can run things without her supervision.

Deb W said...

My heart is broken. I just loved Iris. How much bigger the hole must be in your hearts. I'm so sorry. She will be dearly missed.

CathyD. said...

Sweet Iris, everyone will miss her terribly. No dog ever found a better home and family and she loved her home and family with all her heart. You could see it in her eyes. Big hugs to all, especially Miss Tilly.

Emily Zimmatore said...

I am so sorry for your loss. A dear member of your family has passed, and left a painful space no mere words could comfort or fill. Virtual hug.

linnea said...

Animals who become part of our family are wonderful gifts we are lucky to enjoy and share our lives with and it is true for them as well. I am sure Iris is at peace and spending eternity smiling thinking of how much she was loved.

xoxo, Linnea & Peter
