It’s with profound sadness that I inform you of the passing of Princess, who came to us through GRRSM through the efforts of Al Huey. Princess was one of the dogs rescued from Zuni, but she quickly mastered the task of moving from life in a squalid cage to a place where she had 400 acres to roam, groundhogs and rabbits to chase, cats who worshiped her, and a pair of humans who gave her their hearts. The farm is quiet tonight, dealing with the absence of the grace she gave to it and the joy of her dance when the words, “You want to go for a walk?” were spoken.

Thank you all for the gift of Princess and for the good work you do.

I’m so glad Princess’ last three years were spent with you. She was such a pretty girl.

I am so sorry for your loss there is nothing I can say to help with the pain you feeling. Just remember you gave her a wonderful life and that is what she knew when she passed.

I’m so sorry! I remember her well, we were there when the dogs first got to Maryland. A beautiful girl.

I am so glad she had a wonderful three years with your family. It is so hard to say goodbye. Thank you for adopting her and giving her such a wonderful life to remember. I met her at the dog park and remember how sweet she was.

Although Princess was the oldest of the Zuni rescue dogs she adjusted comparatively faster than the others. So much for the adage you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. I want to thank Mardi and John for giving her a wonderful new home.

She was so beautiful and we never want them to leave us.
I am so sorry for your loss.

I’m so sorry for the loss of your beautiful girl. I’m so glad Princess got to spend her last few years in such a happy place with so much adventure and love.
