I don't know how to say this. Audrey passed away yesterday because what we'd thought was some back trouble was really cancer on her spine and throughout her abdomen. When we went for the MRI it was clear that it was not what anyone had thought. Things got so bad so fast we are bewildered and heartbroken. We had to put her to sleep and were there with her when she left. I felt like it was all a dream, but today she is not here. I know that everyone loved Audrey and could see how special she was. I whispered the love from around the world to her. I know she felt it. I want to believe she is running on the beach like she was in this video from last summer. We will always love you, Audrey.


I've been reading for awhile and love your blog and especially stories about the adorable Audrey - I'm crying for you and your sweet friend right now - love from South Carolina.

Oh my God - I didn't even want to read it. I feel like someone just kicked me in the stomach. I know I don't really know you or anything - but with reading about you and Andy and Audrey and the kitties, I do feel like I sort of do know you. I am So unbelievably sorry to hear this. I don't know what else to say. I am so, so, deeply sorry. Hugs to all of you.

I am so sorry for your loss. Loving and comforting thoughts are being sent your way. Audrey will be remembered always.

I am so, so sorry Alicia. What a sweet soul she was. I love her pictures and stories of her. I am so sorry.

OH MY GOSH! you poor thing. My heart goes out to you. A Big hug to you and your hubby. Audrey was a lucky girl to have you as her owner.

I am so sorry for your loss, I know there are no words that can help.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Audrey was a beauty. I'll be remembering you and your family in the weeks to come. She loved you too!

I'm so sorry to hear this, Alicia. Dogs are just like family members, so it must be so heartbreaking to go through. I wish you lots of strength and love.

Alicia-I am so sorry about Audrey. She is so beautiful and sweet.

Oh, I'm so very, very sorry for your loss. Hugs to all of you, and a toast to the unforgettable Audrey, who will remain in the hearts of all of your readers forever.

I'm so sorry!! I have no words. I will always remember her as the cutest dog on earth.

Dearest Alicia and Andy,
I am heartbroken to hear of your terrible loss. May your wonderful memories of Audrey sustain you through your grief. She was a wonderful girl....

I'm so so sorry to hear this Alicia :(

Oh, Alicia. I am so sorry about Audrey. I know how hard it is to lose a pet. It's absolutely heartbreaking. Fraidy, my boyfriend's cat was put to sleep yesterday as well, and I'm heartbroken over it. I hope Audrey and Fraidy find each other up in pet heaven and take care of each other.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

I just watched the video of beautiful Audrey joyfully running on the beach and sat at my desk tears streaming down my face. Such a shock for you and such a sudden goodbye. I am so, so sorry for your loss. Dogs just don't live long enough lives. I am sure that she is now, zooming around that beautiful expanse of beach with her tennis ball.

I will give my dogs an extra kiss & hug today in Audrey's memory.

xo, Susan

I am so very sorry too. She was the cutest dog and I can only hope she is running on a beach somewhere free of pain and having a grand time as you said. I am so sorry and will miss Audrey stories and photos. Take care.
