Sweet Polly Purebred

"Sweet Polly Purebred"

Our Polly crossed over
the Rainbow Bridge
She was 17.

A coydog, Polly came from 
the Southwestern U.S., &
she had a natural wildness. 
She embodied endless energy 
& genuine passion for life.

Polly loved everyone,
from babies to the elderly, 
people, cats & other dogs.
She was the quintessential
family dog.

She will be forever missed 
by  all who knew her,
especially her family.


  1. I had posted to this yesterday, but noticed today that it wasn't there. I am so, so sorry about your loss of sweet Polly. My heart breaks for you, honey. Wrapping my arms around you! xo

  2. I have had a dog for 43 years, and now have no dog. It's hard. My only comfort is that they are all together, having fun being dogs, happy & healthy.
    Thank you. You are special. I knew you would understand. ~HUGS~

  3. I'm so sorry for your loss. Polly was a beautiful dog.

    I know from experience that loosing a beloved pet is very difficult. You keep expecting them to come up to greet you when you come in but instead you are greeted with silence and a big hole in the heart.

    Hugs, JB

    1. You are so right. There is a Polly shaped hole in my heart. But I know she is happy again.

  4. Dear McGuffy Ann, . . . I am saddened by the death of Polly and by your loss of such a dear friend. All I can say to you is what Dulcy said to me two days after she died. "At the end, all that matters is love. My love for my human and hers for me. I have planted the memories of our life together in her heart. She will find them there when I am gone and they will comfort her."

    May your memories bring you comfort in these hours and days and weeks and months of grief.


    1. Thank you for your beautiful & wise words. Polly would have loved Dulcy & you.

  5. I am sorry for the loss of your beloved pet!

  6. I'm sorry for your loss. She was a very lucky dog to have a good home and people who loved her. It's all they ever want. Soon you'll find that every memory of Polly will bring a smile to your face. It's what heals us. Take care.

    1. Deb, thank you. It is hard to let go, even when it is right. But they do leave us with so much.

  7. Those are beautiful words and a lovely tribute. She must have been amazing.

  8. We're so sorry, even though she had a good, long life with you. It doesn't matter if it's a year or 10 or 17, it's gut-wrenching to have to let go. Please just remember that the holes in our hearts are to let the Light shine through.

    Sending you purrs and hugs.

    Kim and the boys

    1. Thank you. I like the way you worded that. She certainly brought light and lit up life. I appreciate your kindness.

  9. So sorry to hear this! And it is harder when there isn't another dog to comfort you. We lost our two girls exactly two years apart, and we've tried to foster/adopt dogs since then but they haven't worked out with our deaf cat. Give yourself some time to grieve and even if you're not in a place where you can have another dog yet, volunteering can help with that hole in your heart.

  10. My heart broke for you when I read of Polly's passing. Our beloved animals are treasured members of our families and their passing is mourned no less than for any member we hold dear. I know that you are missing her face at every corner and her presence close at hand. I also am quite certain you'll know her spirit stops by to visit now and then to comfort you and let you know she is in a wonderful place now where dogs and cat and all creatures dance with joy! HUGS to you Dear Friend, there are not enough tears to shed for a furry friend who knew for certain how very much she was loved!
