    When I heard this I was just taken to my knees with tears. I am so stunned. We know there are no words that can be said to help alleviate your devastating heartbreak.

    All we can do is be by your side and try and hold you up as you crumble. No one can understand the intensity of hope we all have going into this journey like we can. No one can understand the intensity of grief when our furbabies have to head ro the Bridge to be free of their unhealthy earthly bodies. And to have their transition to happen like Shammy’s did….just sad beyond words.

    This piece of crap disease makes up its own rules and brings about so many unexpected twists and turns that no one can do anything about.

    You tried, goodness knows you tried. What happened is so rare and so unpredictable. You HAD to try. Shammy wanted you to try. You jad every reason to believe you would get extended quality time. And in spite of all the hurdles, Shammy was showing you she would be able to get her spark back. She just too much stacked against her. Nothing could change that.

    All I can say for now, is PLEASE STAY CONNECTED! PLEASE! You have some really rough times ahead and you do not have to go through them alone. Your pain is so raw right now and there is no way through grief except to go through it. It hurts. It’s not pretty. It’s seemingly unbearable. You will get through it though, because Shammy needs to know you will be alright….because she is.

    That’s a BEAUTIFUL picture tribute you did of Shammy at the Bridge. The picture really resonates…it’s so true.

    I love the way Shammy has her head tilted. It’s like she’s saying, “Why are you crying Mom? I’m fine! I feel sooo good! My welcome home dinner was steak, macaroni and cheese and pizza! I’m doing fine Mom! And thanks for giving me more love and fun times than any dog could ever imagine! I had THE best time with you!”

    As hard as it is right now, try and remember that these past few days were just a blink of an eye compared to the thousands and thousands of deliciously happy days she had with you!

    The picture of you two shows soooo much happiness, sooo much love! This tells the whole story of your lives together. Look at you! You are both smiling!!

    Wrapping you up in the hugs of your entire Tripawd Family and surrounding you with Shammy’s eternal grace…

    So sorry to hear of Shammy’s passing I’ve told Angel Jackson who lost his battle a week ago today to look for him & take care of him for you. Hugs to you during this difficult time I know how sadness can fill our hearts where love lived before. Hang in there!

    I am so sorry to hear this. I was just thinking about you last night, and wondering how your first chemo went. You are in my thoughts!

    I am so unbelievably sorry for your loss! my heart is completely broken for you! I have been following your blog on Shammy as went through a similar situation with my 7 yr old newfoundland Miller. He too had some kind of reaction to either the chemo or NSAIDS he was on. We also had to sat goodbye to him way too soon! Miller only made it though one chemo treatment. If its not too much to ask I would love to speak with you to hear your story (when you are ready) in the hopes that your story can help bring closure to me? and or my story help bring closure to you? I still struggle everyday with what happened to our boy. We lost him over a year ago.
    My heart is with you during this time!
    RIP Shammy my sweet boy Miller will see you on the other side

    Bless you and your pack. My heart breaks for your loss.

    I’m so glad we got to talk yesterday, although I wish the circumstances were different. My heart aches for you, this is such a terrible shock. Please know you are not alone in this process OK? We are here for you always.

    Much love & condolences coming your way.

    Hi Rae, Thinking of you today and hope you got some rest last night and are taking a few days for yourself. Sending you hugs during this very difficult time. Summer and Patchy

    So sorry to hear Shammy lost the battle just as you were getting started. I can only imagine how devastating your experience has been.

    I lost my Rottweiler 3 months ago and can tell you that, in time, the raw pain you’re feeling right now will be partially replaced with all your good memories. But the early days are simply hard. Take care of yourself.

    She was such a beautiful Newfie! Thank you for sharing her with us.

    Oh I am so sorry. Shedding so many tears over this, I was following Shammy’s story, such a beautiful girl and clearly loved so very much. Praying your heart finds peace and comfort at this awful time. Thinking of you. Hannah & Beau
