  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Jane, she was absolutely stunning and I'm so sorry you had to lose her so early. I hope you can find peace in happy memories of Sophie on this difficult anniversary. Be good to yourself today.
Regards from Deb, Allie (6/1/07), and Riley (2/20/09)

The ones who are with us so short a time are the ones who have the most to teach. I know that Sophie taught you to be more sensitive and compassionate about the care and wellbeing of dogs - all dogs everywhere. Blessings of peace on this day.

I'm sure she looks down on you everyday to check on her mommy. I will be sending prayers and thoughts your way today. I'm sure it's very difficult. She is probably running around with all the other dogs in doggy heaven. innocent.gif

Somehow I missed this also!
She was a beautiful girl!
I too am sure she 's still close to you Jane.

In June 2008 we had to have our 15 1/5 year old ESS Amber put to sleep.
I used to use a very distinctive smelling powder called Thornit to keep her ears healthy about once a month.
Since Christmas we have smelled this on the stairs & in our bedroom several times.
I don't use this for any of the other dogs or anything like it. So I think Amber is coming back to spend evenings with us sometimes.
