Saying good-bye and thank you

A dog´s life is unfortunately quite short. If you take care of a pack of dogs you have to say good-bye many times. It is not getting easier but nevertheless, it is part of life. Life is not endless, neither human´s nor dog´s.

Every farewell is hard. Our dogs are part of our family. We spend time with each other every single day. We share adventures, emotions, coziness, and everything in between. We are grateful for every day, every minute.

And when the day comes, we need to say farewell. We accompany our dogs until the last breath. We take them home to our homestead and bury them. Every dog has their nameplate in the dog yard. After the dog has left our kennel, we take the nameplate and put it on our memory wall.

But not only the nameplate remains. All wonderful memories will stay with us in our hearts. Forever!

On this page, we want to say thank you for the lovely time we had together.

Gone but not forgotten.
