April 2013 to March 2019

That sad day came, and we had to let you go.

You were the dog of Colt’s heart, and I will always remember watching the two of you fall in love when you first saw each other.

You were so loved.  Our lives were better having you be part of our family.  You were the puppy that Snowflake got to keep.

We cry now because you left a giant hole in our hearts.  Someday we will be past the tears and will laugh and smile as we walk down a memory lane paved with Stormy Girl stories.

You were a special gift of puppy love in a giant package.  You left giant paw prints on our hearts forever.

We love you Stormy Girl.  We will see you again.  Wait for us, just as you waited that day.  We will come for you, because you will always be our Stormy Girl.


Colt, Mommy, and Snowflake

  2. It is so hard to lose a pet. They are a large part of your life. While it is hard to say goodbye, I wouldn’t give up any of the years spent with my pets. Walter and I are thinking of you and your husband.

  8. So very sorry for your heartbreaking loss. Its the deepest pain to let our precious furbabies go.
    May memories warm your heart and ease your grief

  9. My family and I were blessed with a Dalmatian named Chopper. My boys were little and had a fear of dogs so my husband brought him home in hopes that they would love him and get over their fear. For 14 years he blessed our life but passed away from cancer in 2008. There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t miss him and think of him. He brought such a joy to our lives. I will never own another dog because once you have the best why bother. My deepest sympathy for your loss.

  10. Since I only adopt senior kitties, I lose more fur babies than most. But it’s truly a wonderful thing to have these guys and gals in my life and to be able to give them a safe and secure retirement life. I truly get more than I give…or at least it feels that way. So very sorry for your family’s loss. So sad.

  11. Judy …so sorry to hear of Stormy’s passing away. Just think there will be extra paws romping in doggy heaven. Our pets do leave paw prints on our heart. Just think of all those wonderful memories you were able to make and hold close to you forever.
    Sounds like you need a beach day so that you can throw pebbles into crashing waves while you shed tears of joy that Stormy now has no pain and suffering.
    Warm hugs my friend…

  12. So sorry that you are again facing that time. The fill our hearts with love. I won’t say the other part; you know both well. Thank you for sharing your beloved

  13. It’s always so hard to say farewell to a part of the family (yes a true family member) that gave pure and unconditional love. My wish for you is to remember the fun times. It really does help. It doesn’t stop the tears though. I certainly know that.

    Big hugs.

  14. I am so sorry for your loss of Stormy. I know how you are feeling, we lost our Sammy four years ago and still miss him and talk about him almost every day. Remember all the good times and enjoy those memories.

  16. We had our Ashes for 23 years. She grew up with our daughters. Never easy to say goodbye. Love and comforting wishes for those she left behind.

  17. Dear Jeanne T and Colt,
    To paraphrase, “You are the persons Stormy thought you were.”
    All she asked was to be loved by you and you gave that to her–you were fortunate to have each other.
    Take care of yourselves.

  18. I’m so very sorry for the loss of your loss of your beloved Stormy. Our fur babies become a part of the family so I know how painful it is to lose one

    In my thoughts and prayers!

  20. I just finished reading Proof of Life and your love for your fur-baby shines through in the introduction of Rambo/Lucy. She’s a wonderful addition to the series and I look forward to meeting up again with all 3 characters in the next Beau/Mel/Lucy book
