So sorry for the loss of your beautiful, and precious girl. You have so many wonderful memories to hold onto in your heart, and your video memorial to her was so beautiful. Untill you meet your girl again, run free sweet Ianna, run free.

So sorry for your loss. She was absolutely gorgeous! No amount of years is enough when you have a dog that is that special. Even a lifetime wouldn't be enough.

RIP Ianna

Thanks's funny, I went to the internet to talk about this rather than to my family. My family doesn't really "get" the whole dog thing, but all my dog friends online understand completely! My husband and I feel like there is a huge hole in our lives, even tho we still have 2 big personality GSDs here.

I have so many messages on Facebook....started to pay attention, and was surprised to see just how many people had met Ianna during our travels. Yeah she did have a really good and FULL life.

The tribute you put together for Ianna was beautiful! So sorry for your loss!

ETA: I was misty eyed simply by the title of your thread. It really speaks to the special relationship you seem to have had with your beautiful girl!

What a wonderful video. I could just see her joy in the photos you chose. I am so sorry for your loss, but equally impressed by the life you lived with her.

What a beautiful and accomplished girl she was. So sorry, Regina.

We've had one live to 14-1/2, but it still wasn't long enough.

I can tell from the video you put together that you guys made the most of those 14 years together! You gave her an amazing life and it was evident how much she was loved and cared for. I'm not sure we ever get over the lost of our love ones, but I hope and pray that time will ease the pain you're going through.
