Sweet Baby Thorn



Sweet Baby Thorn
2004 ~ 2012

It is with deep sadness and sorrow
that I must post the loss of my wonderful, sweet boy, Thorn...
from complications of Degenerative Myelopathy.

The house is so empty and quiet without him.
Brier and I feel so lonely. Our hearts are forever broken.

We love you Thorny. We miss you so much.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my sweet Gabby last summer. Her friendship and companionship was so closely and intimately woven throughout my days, when she died, it was keenly felt. My heart goes out to you. Take care.

It is with great sadness I read your post. Thorn's antics, trials and tribulations touched the hearts of so very, very many. I hope you can take some comfort in knowing we share your loss.

Jackie, I am so sorry to learn of Thorn's passing. I heard about your loss at a show yesterday. I know how very hard this is for you. You are a wonderful doggy Mom and I know you did your best for Baby Thorn. I watched the video of him with his cart and was thrilled to see how he got along. Hold on to those wonderful memories of your beautiful boy! Hugs to you.
