Losing Troy came out of the blue. He was playful, funny, and a total ham. He and I had an extraordinary relationship. But over a small space of time , I saw the light, and playfulness leave his eyes...replaced by fear, and uncertainty.
I do believe Troy gave us the gift, allowing us to let him go. As if he said to us, the show is over. Good night , Gracie! We all got it, and that's what has allowed us to heal.
I wanted to thank you again personally from our family ... and most especially Troy for providing a gentle transition to him on Sept 14th. He was a big dog with a big personality and his presence is missed in so many ways!! Yet we talk of his passing with gratitude, and how he recognized your arrival that day as his “exit”. It was a remarkable moment for us to witness his calm surrender. Thank you again for your calm and compassionate service at a difficult time.
Sincerely and gratefully,
