    My condolences, Derek. You two were lucky to have each other. What a beautiful lady she is.

    I was always told that we will know when it's time. I never understood that until it was time.

    Beautiful dog. Cherish the memories you made with her. Been in your shoes before and not looking forward to the day my ol girl passes. If you haven,t already get started with another dog. Theres one out there just waiting for a master to train and love them.

    Sorry for your loss.I have had 3 and my last one was also in purchased as apup 04 and passed in 2016 a few years after we my wife and I were married and we had no children.When she passed so suddenly we were devastated and I cried on and off for months.my wife wanted another one soon after but I was not ready until now.Looking back it may have been better to get one sooner and now we are on a list for new pup.Your grief will pass but I know it is not easy.Terry

    Aye Derek,
    My heart goes out to ye and ye family on ye loss o' Sunny. Take comfort in the joy she brought to ye lives and in knowing ye gave her an awesome life as a hunting retriever that was clearly loved. A grand tribute and as always I really enjoy ye photographs even though these brought tears to me eyes. As a photographic artist, know that your work evokes emotion in the viewer and that no better compliment on ye work can be had.

    Godspeed Sunny and endless birds to ye on the other side.

    Peace to ye and ye family Derek.

    Sincere Regrets,
    Mike
