In Loving Memory of Reina

In Loving Memory of Reina

It’s been a bad week.

I purposefully like to keep the tone of Running in a Skirt positive and upbeat, but today I have something sad to tell you guys.

We lost Reina on Monday.  She got sick late Sunday with heart problems and she died early Monday afternoon.

It had nothing to do with her recent health issues with her leg, and completely took us by surprise.   She may have been ten, but we honestly thought we’d have a few more years with her.

The hubs and I are heartbroken.  Even Rhett seems upset.  I know she was just a dog, but since we don’t have kids right now, she was our family.

Many of you might not know that when I met the hubs almost exactly six years ago, he came with Reina.  I never had a “big” dog before and honestly thought I was a small dog person.  But Reina quickly won me over with her demanding and endearing personality.

She was so full of joy.

She may have been almost 50 pounds, but she was the best lap dog you could ever ask for.

She loved to put her forehead right on your forehead and force you to stop what you were doing to give all your attention to her.  She could never be close enough to you.

I loved her spark, and quickly “adopted” her as my own.

She was also a beautiful dog and she knew it.  People always fawned over her.  She loved to be told she was beautiful and made friends with everyone.

We will remember Reina most for her love of chasing squirrels (so glad she never caught one though!,) eating and rolling in grass

and “chewing” on smoke out of the fire pit or smoker.

I will never be able to look at a tennis ball in the same way because of her obsessive adoration of them.

But most of all we will remember a dog who loved her people more than anything.  At the end of the day, all she ever wanted in life was to be with us.

And you can’t ask for much more from a dog.

We will miss our Reina dearly.

    So sorry for your loss. Three years ago we too lost our Boxer from heart complications… Unfortunately this is common in them. Cherish what she brought to you, big dogs are really great.

    I’m so sorry, Julie 🙁 That’s strange that her passing wasn’t related to her leg issues. I’m glad that the decisions you made to treat her leg were not something that lead to her death though.

    I can’t imagine losing such a best friend. I’ve never lost a dog before, but I know it has to hurt. Praying for you, friend.

    God bless you and your husband. Fur babies are just that, babies with fur. My heart breaks for you both. I lost 3 dogs in the past year (all from old age) and I still tear up thinking of them. It does get better but it does take time. Now I can smile and/or laugh at a really good fur memory. You both have my deepest sympathies.

    I’m so so so so so sorry for your loss. A dog definitely isn’t just a dog – she was your family, your baby, your love. She brought so much joy to your life and I’m sure it feels like a huge part of you is missing now. I’m so happy she was able to enjoy 10 years in a loving home and turn you into a dog lover :). I hope she’s happily frolicking in doggy heave.

    I am so very sorry for your loss! They are more than just a dog, they are our babies. I know how you are hurting because I have been through it. I had to put my baby dog Cuddles down almost 17 years ago and because it hurt and still hurts so bad I still won’t get another one. It was just him and me for 13 years. I’m sure your other dog is depressed. Poor baby!

    Dear Julie,
    Oh, so very sorry. We, too, have been there for a situation in which a beloved furry family member has left us behind wondering how we will ever get over the loss. Only precious time can ease the horrendous ache and fill the void that this day holds. Yes, Rhett will miss her, too, and will grieve alongside you and Hubs.
    Bless you, my dear, as my tears for your aching loss fall I am sending you and Hubs hugs from the heart.
    Keep her photos out. Save a tennis ball for Rhett. Know that she loved you – the unconditional love that only our furry family can give. Life, as you know, is meant for today. We are not promised tomorrow. We live and grow with each experience and there is a reason that a DOG is our Best Friend — spelled backwards it is GOD. Just a bit of the unconditional love from Him into our daily lives.

    Oh Julie my heart is breaking for you guys this morning. There is nothing anybody can say or do to make it all better. Been there and done that with Boxers. Reina lived a wonderful life and even though she has crossed the Rainbow Bridge she continues to live and will be waiting on you one day so she can run and meet you again. I bet that today she is running through fields full of flowers and chasing butterflies. She will always be watching over you guys. My prayers and thoughts go out to yall today and for many more to come.
    When I lost my 4 year old Boxer to cancer I passed out at the vet and my mom had to come get me. I had to be put on medication and see a therapist. It was awful. I just wanted to die too. I slept in the floor for weeks cos I couldn’t stand to get back in the bed without her. Sooooo……I feel your heartache Julie. Many hugs sent your way also. GOD BLESS you BOXERS RULE.

    Our pets, like all companion animals are gifts from God. Furry creatures with big hearts and tons of love to brighten our worst days. They never let us down. They know us inside and out and they wrap themselves around our little fingers and become “our heart”. Once that happens its hard to tell who loves who more. We become one with them and they with us. There is a difference though. As we worship our most Heavenly Father as God, our pets worship us as God. We become their everything and we become their heros. We are faultless in their eyes. Nothing matters more to them than loving us with their whole heart, never holding back. At the end of their lives, they leave this Earth a better place because of it. What a lesson we could all learn from a good old dog!

    Your family are in my prayers Julie…

    I’m so sorry for your loss. It is like losing a family member. I lost my dog Happy a few years ago and I understand what you are going through.

    Oh Julie my heart breaks for you and your husband. Losing a pet is so devastating. Please know myself and my standard poodles are thinking of you. Sincerely,Kelly

    Oh, Julie, I am so sorry and understand how heartbroken you must be right now. Grief is the same, no matter for whom you’ve lost — a family member is a family member. My thoughts are with you.

    I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I understand completely. Just like you, our pets are our children. She was such a sweet dog. I have been following your blog since the beginning and feel I have gotten to know them also. Rhett will miss her also. They were such an unlikely pair but so cute together. Thank you for sharing so much of your life with us. I am sure it is difficult at times like this. Grace and Peace to you.

    I’m so sorry Julie. I know you try to keep your blog upbeat but I think this as a totally appropiate place for you to share and receive emotional support.I know we are not your family or close personal friends, but I certainly hope you feel support from us.
    Again, I’m sorry for your loss.
