It isn't supposed to happen this way….

  • Rest in peace my dear, little Luna. Quercus Select Incandescent 12/8/04 - 5/23/09. I came downstairs this morning to find my youngest girl dead in her crate. We think it was an allergic reaction to something, most likey a bug bite.

    Our house is in mourning…she was the sweetest, cutest basenji girl...I was so looking forward to her being an outstanding mother later on this year. It isn't supposed to happen this way....our dogs are supposed to grow old, enjoy their whole life...I can't stop crying....

    Everybody give an extra hug to your babies.....

  • I'm so very sorry; to lose a young one so suddenly like this is beyond devastating. Thinking of you and your family.

  • Oh Andrea…. I am so very sorry... hugs to you and the family...

  • OMG - I'm so sorry Andrea. How devastating! My heart goes out to you and your family for your loss of sweet Luna. It's so sad. I hope you find comfort in the ones surrounding your heart today and in the weeks ahead.

  • I'm so sorry, that is just awful. Hugs to you and your family.

  • Oh I'm so sad to read this….. RIP little Luna...

  • 😞 That is so sad - I'm sorry this has happened to you & your baby.

  • Oh my.. I'm so so sorry.. The worst nightmare.. hugs to you and your family..

  • Oh no! It is so hard to lose one but when it is sudden and completely unexpected it is devastating. I am so sorry for your loss.


  • How awful, such sad news. My heart goes out to you.


  • I am so sorry to hear about Luna. I can't begin to imagine what you must be feeling.

  • Thank you so much for your kind words, everybody. The vet seems to think it was just a freak incident..probably a pulmonary embolism. She thinks we would have seen more distress, and symptoms if it had been an allergic reaction. We are struggling through our day 😞

    One of the most tragic/ironic things about this is that I had been waiting to breed this little my first real breeding (my plans, my choice of stud, etc); when she came back as a clear of Fanconi, I was beyond thrilled. I think, maybe the universe is telling me now is not the time for me to be a breeder 😞

  • Andrea, this is sad and tragic beyond words. Losing one at 13 or 15 is hard enough, but to lose such a young one is just unimaginable to me. My most sincere sympathy to you and your family. (((((HUGS)))))

  • I'm sorry. Hugs to you all

  • I'm very sorry for your loss. Hugs to all.

  • Andrea - what a sad sad thing to have happen to a lovely girl in her prime! My heart weeps for you all.

  • I'm so sorry. I know what it's like to loose a prime-of-life dog. I remember the anger from the unfairness of it all. I wish I could offer some sort of wise words, but I just don't have any.

  • Oh, Andrea, I am so sorry to hear about Luna.:( My heart goes out to you and your family… this is so sad and she was too young... I gave Bella extra hugs and it was like she understood I am sad for you, because she put her head on my shoulder and stayed extra still for me.

  • Andrea, I am so sorry for your loss. It is just heartbreaking to lose them and so much harder when they are so young.

  • Andrea I am so very very sorry about your loss my heart go's out to you and your family. As long as Luna is in your heart she will always and forever be with you. May God Bless all of you and Luna.
