I am so sorry to hear this, and a bit in shock!  My thoughts are with you.

Otis - 106 pound lab/Dane mix, lost his right front leg to osteosarcoma on Febuary 9, 2016.  Four rounds of carboplatin completed in April, 2016.  Lung mets August 25, 2016.  Said goodbye too soon on September 4, 2016.   Lost his adopted sister, Tess, suddenly on October 9, 2016. likely due to hemangiosarcoma.  

Wherever they are, they are together.

Oh no! We are so sorry Clare, how devastating! I wish I had something wise to say right now but I just can’t find the right words to tell you how sorry we are. The heartache must be unreal. Thank you for coming here to tell us, I hope you can feel the love and hugs from everyone in the community. We are all thinking of you and Meg.

Holly you are sweet for your post and sharing the lovely video and photo, thanks.

Clare, I’m so sorry. No secret that Elsie is one of my favorites- she reminds me so much of Tani.

I’m running late right now so more later but I had to at least type something.  I’m thinking of you and Meg.

Holly- very nice, thank you.

Clare, my heart breaks for your loss! It’s never easy, and this has to be beyond shocking for you. Your video of her life is amazing, and a wonderful keepsake. She sure packed a lot of living in her 10 years on this earth, and now she’s moved on to start her new life at the Bridge. She’s sure to shake things up there, a bit, in a good way of course. Sending you much love as you process this, and wishing you peace in the coming days.

Oh Clare ……….

I just cannot believe this …

I am so, so, so sorry, so very, very sorry …

Elsie Pie was such a character, so sweet and so well spirited and such a gourmet girl 🌸 always ready for anything and everything yummy to be had.

She, Meg and you were (and still are) such a wonderful team I cannot even begin to imagine how you feel right now …

It is always worse when one is not prepared to take an instant decision but you truly had no choice, sweet Clare …

My heart goes out to you, I am right next to you right now, can you feel my hug ? …

Elsie is with Billy and your Dad and also with Miss Cow, they are having the biggest menu ever in the clouds, I’m sure Eurydice took extra care not to burn the steaks and sausages and she produced cakes stuffed with liver and bacon wrapped up with mortadella and so much more. 

Elsie is happy with her Angel friends and she is looking at her Mom and Meg from the sky, she will let you know she is ok, you can be certain of that. 

It may take a while but she will. 

I so wish I could ease your pain but sadly only time can help …

Please know you are in my thoughts and so is Elsie and Meg, my heart is with you sweet Clare now and always 💗🐮✨💫🌟🌹💗

Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

Clare and Meg … my heart broke when I saw your post this morning. I was, as others have written, completely and utterly shocked. I think I can recall when I first fell in love with Elsie… it was when Meg when “missing”. The interrogation video was by far the best thing I have ever seen. The sounds, the expressions … the essence of “Pie”. 

Know that your entire tripawds family stands with you in your time of need… know that we all hold you in our hearts and wish we could hold you in our arms. There are no words I have that can help ease this sudden pain but know I am thinking of you! 

Much much love!

Alison, Spirit Shelby and Little Jasper Lily too

And PS – thank you Holly!

Thank you, everyone, for your very kind words, and thank you, Holly, for telling everyone what happened – I found your post so touching and so loving, and I have read it through a thousand times trying to get my head round what happened myself. You are all so sweet to take the trouble to post and to express what the Pie meant to you. Else was a hugely determined character. She had survived against all the odds as a pup, but there is a time to fight and a time to let go and this was the time to let her go. I am grateful that things did not escalate into a full blown crisis, as I’m sure that was just around the corner. She died peacefully, calmly, her warm little body in my arms.

Over and over and over again, I’ve come here tonight to TRY and write something…anything.   We all feel like our world here has stopped for awhile.  Your whole family is sooooo heartbroken and riddled with grief.

I like what Alson said because it made me stop  crying for a second to focus on when, exactly, was the first time Elsie Pie jumped k to my heartheart Dozens of images…maybe more like hundreds of images…started flooding my memory.  Each one stayed with me a second and then another pushed forward.  E V E R Y. S I N G L E.  I M A G E. M A D E. M E  SMILE!   Because that’s what the Pie did so effortlessly and with such purpose…she ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS made us smile.   I actually started scribbling the memories down quicle because I want to come back and recount some of them with you.  Now isn’t the time.   Emotions are too raw.

Maybe that’s something each of us good do.  Piggyback on Allison’s comment recall a couple of special memories we each have of Pie.  Of course, a “couple” will never be enough. 

Clare, one of the greatest honors of being here on this site will FUREVER be the privilege of knowing and loving you, Elsie Pie and Megastar.  You and Pie, and Meg too, share  one light.  A light that  is so bright it can NEVER be dimmed.  We’ve all been touched by the “Light of Pie”, the “Grace of Pie”, the “Dry sense of humor of Pie”.  That will NEVER disappear.  We shall ALWAYS carry a piece of Elsie Pie in our hearts

For now though, all any of us want to do is try and hold you up until you can stand on your own.  And I don’t mind telling you, some of us are having a hard time standing on our own and have been leaning on each other so we can remain strong for you.

With every fiber of my veing, I’m just so sorry and I, like everyone here, would give anything to take your pain away.

Sally and My Chunky Spiritual Being Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie

PS. I will say this Clare.  I don’t know how or when Elsie Pie will connect with you, but I DO know it will be one of the most creative ways possible!!  Maybe even in a bit of an  annoying or obnoxious off-handed way. 

And Holly.  At first I didn’t want to look at the video.  I just knew it would be so sad to watch, even though I watched it with such a celebratory state when Clare first posted it.  .  And then I reminded myself that it is impossible to look at any picture or video of Pie and not smile!!  Yep, it was IMPOSSIBLE!!  I smiled many times over and I marveled at the happy love story she lived every moment of everyday.   And that’s how we must pay tribute to Elsie Pie…with a SMILE.

We all @ove you so dearly Clare.  I PROMISE PROMISE. PROMISE. PROMISE YOU, ELSIE PIE WILL LIVE ON THROUGH YOU…THROUH US…AND THROUGH MEG!!   Her legacy here is just beginning and shall be necer endingheart

YES!!!   THAT’S THE JOY OF. PIE!!!  Captured so brilliantly!! PURE PIE BLISS!!

And followed up by the interview of all interviews!  

Okay, I have one for you to search out when you’re up for it.    Either Elsie Pie was trying to push Meg off the little bridge they were walking on, or vice versa.  Does that ring a bell?

I’m not sure if that was in a video or this pic? She did try quite a few times, the sideways Pie barge was one of her favourite manoeuvres
