 Darby came into rescue in September of 2008-- Amee offered to foster her.    Darby stole her heart right away.
 We would laugh and compare Darby to Starlight-- both "baby cujos."    
They both loved their people, but strangers-- not so much.    
 Darby loved "her" baby (who is almost 4 now).    And he loved her.    It was a special bond.
 Darby would romp in the snow with her two doggy sisters.    
 And snuggle for a nap with her buddy Sakks.  
 The three sisters would dress up for Halloween.
Her mom isn't sure what happened to Darby-- but it seems to have been a stroke.   They took her to the vet and she was given fluids and meds.    The next day, she was very agitated, so Amee picked her up and held her close-- and Darby died in her arms.  Darby was so special to her and she went everywhere with Amee.  Amee said, " My life was forever blessed when she came to me for fostering – everyone said that I saved her – well that may be the case but she truly saved me – she was the best.  I don’t know what I will ever do without her."    Our hearts go out to Amee-- we are so very sorry.   Rest in peace, sweet Darby.

I am soo sorry for your loss. We never know how long we have with our pups or anyone for that matter. What is important is how we spend the time we do have with each other and it sounds like Darby had a blast with you! My heart goes out to you for such an unexpected loss! Darby you knew a great love and you will be back with your Mom at the bridge before you know it!

Very sorry for the loss of your precious Darby. Extremely difficult to go through. The most loving relationships are also the hardest to lose. We share your pain. Kim and the pekes - Nicky, Wyatt and GeeGee (rescues)
