I'm sure many of you noticed the post in the Photo Forum by my friend Yvonne (cyc1948) showing off her handsome boy, Georgie. Yvonne finally had time, after opening up her Antique shop, to start to catch up and post on IGW...showing off the love of her life, About Time's Georgia Blue Boy, AKA "Georgie".

After speaking with Yvonne tonight, and with her permission, I am here to say that the day after Yvonne posted Georgie's picture, he was tragically killed after breaking free of his lead and being hit by a car.

Yvonne, as I said to you on the phone, you will get through this...Georgie would want you to. He will always be your "heart dog" and be with you in spirit always. I'm here for you....anytime Attached File  flowers1.gif   1.43KB   2 downloads Attached File  igbridge.gif   2.78KB   8 downloads

All my sympathies to Yvonne. I hope the healing comes quickly and she is comforted in knowing the love she gave to Georgie still is with him.

:LMAO: How very sad. My thoughts are with Yvonne and the other admirers of Georgie. An absolutely beautiful boy.

Hugs, Kerrie, Dakota, Georgio and Charli.

Oh, that is terrible news. I would like to express my deepest sympathies to Yvonne. No one should have to experience the loss of a loved one so tragically. I can't imagine what Yvonne is going through, but I hope she knows we are all still here for her if she needs to talk. Georie will always be with you, Yvonne. Take care.

I am so sorry for your loss. While your heart will take time to heal from the pain, your memories of all the good times you shared will always be there for you. Eventually the good memories will make you smile without bringing tears to your eyes.


I know Georgie was such a part of your life and shared a very close bond with you. Remember, despite all you did, sometimes things happen. You are not to blame. Don't tarnish his memory beating yourself up over what could have been done differently ... instead, remember him for what he was and the great times you shared.
I know he will always carry a special place in your heart, though he was taken far too young. You gave that boy the best life any Iggy anywhere could have asked for Yvonne, and that is the most important thing to remember. For every second of his precious life, he was loved and spoiled and cherished and wanted for nothing. No dog could ask for more.

Please call me anytime again when you are feeling up to it, and let me know if there is anything I can do to help.



I used to have a life, but my dogs ate it!

I am so sorry to hear about this.

No matter how many times I read it, I still tear up over the loss of an IG. And Georgie was a cutie.

My condolences.
