It is with great sadness that we must inform our friends and fans that we lost another member of our community last night. Bocce, the petite red piebald, was humanely euthanized last night to end her suffering from canine Lymphangiectasia. I first met Bocce at the dog beach, and that’s where we saw her most often over the years. She truly seemed happy at the beach with her ball. Bocce was relatively young and taken too soon. The only comfort is her pain has come to an end. She leaves behind a pack mate, Bella, and her humans. Our hearts aches for them all today.
If any fan, friend or fellow-doxie human wants to make a tax-deductible donation in Bocce’s name a personalize condolence postagram will be mailed to her family.
We continue to offer this service because of the overwhelmingly positive feedback we have received. It has been very touching to the grieving families to know they’re not alone. I have also heard that many families are moved by the show of support from strangers across the country. To which I remind them, when you love a dachshund we’re not strangers to one another but simply friends yet to meet. Other dachshund humans truly understand the loss of a loyal protector and short-legged constant companion. I think we know the hurt better than most because our dachshunds are not just dogs or pets, but family.
These postagrams are great keepsake and better than flowers or a casserole (I assert). When our doxies pass, all we have are our memories and pictures. With your help Bocce’s family can have a few more pictures of Bocce playing on the beach during happier times. My only request, in order to make it cost efficient for the charity, please ensure your donation is $10 or more. Thank you. May Bocce rest in peace. Also peace be with Bocce’s humans and Bella.
