We had a tough day yesterday, as Moxie went downhill fast. Saying good-bye is a very hard thing to do, but it's also a gift we can give to our best friends. He was a funny, sweet, independent boy, with a lot of moxie and we will never forget him.
Good-bye sweet prince, Moxie.

Oh, Margene, I'm so sorry to read this. It's the most unfair part of loving animals that we outlive them by so much. Wishing you many lovely memories to get you through these sad days.

Hugs to you both. I know how hard this is.

Oh, Margene, I'm so sorry for your loss. I always looked forward to seeing Moxie's blog appearances and I know you both loved him dearly.

Yes, that's it, that look, full of Moxie! What a perfect name for such a great dog. I hope you can remember him without tears soon.

So sorry Margene. Hugs to you and Smith.

Margene, I am sorry about your loss of Moxie. It is very hard to lose a furry member of the family. My dog, Sacha, passed over number of years ago and I can sometimes still feel her energy with me. My daughter says the same thing. These first few days are very rough. Love to you and Smith.

Aw, Moxie was such a sweetheart. I loved his darling face. I am so sorry.
June 20, 2014 at 08:35 AM
He was one of the good ones. Rest well, good dog.
Knowing that it's a gift you are giving them doesn't make it any easier, does it? I am so very sorry for your loss.

Such a sweet dog! I loved his bounce and his sweet little face. Hugs to you, Margene.

He enriched your lives for many years, and in return, you gave him a wonderful family. He was greatly loved, and will be greatly missed.

So sorry for your loss. It is one of the hardest things to do for the little guys, but one of the most merciful.
