Dear Carrie - I am so sorry for your loss. I only met Rosie once at one of your classes and she was the sweetest girl - she so enjoyed all the people there. Hugs to you.

Sinta Renee

NOoo! She will be missed by me too! She was the best dog ever... I am so very sorry Carrie! It's just not right.


Oh Carrie - I'm so sorry to hear about Rosie. I'm allergic to dogs, but I love them, so I always enjoy it when bloggers show photos about their furry friends and tell stories about them. Ms. Rosie was such a gentle, sweet girl. Sending you warm thoughts.

Oh. Carrie. I cannot express how deeply sorry I am about your loss. I wanted to tell you that I'm at work but holding on to tears because even though i never met her she was such a part of all of us. You shared her with all of us and I am grateful. Thank you. My heart and prayers will be with you during this truly sad time.


Wow--I'm just stunned at this news. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss -- well, in a tiny way, all of our loss as well -- as we all loved Rosie and loved hearing about her. But since she was your dear companion, I send my condolences and certainly lots of hugs for you. Take care--


Tears came to my eyes when I read about dear Rosie. My heart goes out to you. The time our pets are with us is pure joy.


Oh, I'm so sorry for you. I wish I could give you a hug.


So sorry to hear about Rosie, she looked like such a sweet, loving dog. She will be sorely missed, hugs from afar.


i'm heart broken for you. each dog i've ever owned became an important part of my life and my family. each one has a unique personality and lots of funny quirks. remember all the good parts. remember, you will love the next one just as much. love is what heals our broken hearts. :)

Carrie, I hoped this post would never come. My heart is also breaking for you. What a wonderful life you had with each other - I know those memories will sustain you - and Rosie as she keeps an eye on you from above. Many hugs.


So sorry (virtual hug)! Rosie sure was a great companion!

And those are the perfect memories! She was like no other! Howie and I send you hugs❤️


I am so so sorry for your loss...I've been there with a beloved dog, and I know how much it hurts. She gave you so many warm and happy memories and will live in your heart forever. *hugs*

Ugh! My heart is broken for you, but what an incredible blessing you both were to each other! I hope you'll find comfort, and soon, joy, in your memories. I know she was family and that you will forever treasure your time together. Thank you so much for sharing her with us.

I'm so sorry to read this post and I'm welling up at the thought that dear, sweet Rosie isn't sitting watching you eat and waiting for you to share your food/give her a treat. I can't really bear to think about how you must be feeling but I know you must be devastated. And lost. And wondering when/if you'll get used to the silence in the house. I'm thinking of you at this sad time and sending you hugs; you should be getting one round about.......now ((hug)). Take care, and be kind to yourself xx


I am so very sorry for your loss. I am a dog lover and lost one of mine a few months ago so feel your pain. Enjoy all the great memories as you can.


I am so heartbroken for you. Sending you my deepest sympathies for the loss of your dear sweet Rosie.


I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Rosie was a special girl.

Pam P

I'm so sorry. My heart hurts for you. I hope your happy memories will bring you comfort. She knew she was loved.

Laurie in Iowa

I'm so very sorry that you've lost your sweet Rosie. You'll always have your wonderful memories of a very special girl.

Stephanie Neumann

So sorry for your loss! I know pets are a very special part of our lives and I hope your sweet dog will love doggie heaven! God Bless!

Pam Larson

Oh Carrie, I'm so sorry for your loss. I read this with tears in my eyes. I wish I could give you a giant hug. Know that you are with me today and I that Rosie is in all our hearts.


Like others, I have dreaded this post. I am so very sorry for your loss. The past few months have not been kind to you. I hope that when you're ready, you will be able to find another faithful, loving companion. Hugs and prayers.


I'm so, so sorry Carrie. Words cannot express how sorry I am to hear about the loss of Rosie. Know that I'm sending some hugs and sympathy your way. Losing a pet is so difficult, especially a pet as wonderful as Rosie.


Rosie was loved by many and she didn't even know it. I'm so very sorry for your loss.


I am so sorry for your loss. I loved seeing pictures of Rosie with those expressive eyes. My heart goes out to you.


I'm so sorry. I loved seeing her pics on your blog and in your books. Pets are the best.


My condolences. What a sweet doggie.

Karen Seemuth

I'm so so sorry. There are no other words for a loss so great.


Sorry is an inadequate word for your loss but it is heartfelt. She will be missed by many.


No words...just virtual hugs.


Oh, no, Rosie will be so missed. So sorry for your loss.


The world isn't the same place without Rosie in it.

Clair M Becker

So sorry for your loss,I loved seeing her in your blog posts.


Carrie, my heart breaks for you in your loss of Rosie. She was such a special girl and I loved hearing about her antics through your blog. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

So very, very sad to learn of your loss. She was a beautiful, loving dog. Can't ask for more than that. She will be missed.


Carrie, I am so sorry for your loss. Our pets are the world to us & Rosie was such a wonderful girl! You're in my thoughts at this sad time. Take care of yourself & take time to heal.


i am ever so sad to read this.. big hugs my friend


She lived life to the fullest, or as full as you would let her! I'll sure miss that sweet face.


My heart cries for you. I've loved seeing Rosie through your eyes. She was a loving companion. She will be remembered by all of us whose lives she touched, even in the most distant manner. Remember her well....


I am so sorry for your loss. I am a dog person, as well. Dogs are the only creature I know of that love you more than themselves. I loved seeing pictures of your dear friend. I will pet mine a bit longer today. .... Here's hoping your heart heals quickly


So sorry to hear about Rosie. From your stories she sounds like THE BEST companion. Sending you hugs.


I'm so sad to hear about Rosie. I'm so glad you had so many good years with her and want to thank you for sharing her with all of us.

Cathy Burk

Carrie, I am so very sorry to read this. A few years ago we lost our Holly and it was just as devastating as what I imagine you are going through. Time will help and, someday, maybe a warm hug from a little puppy who will steal your heart all over again. I have absolutely no doubt that dogs go to heaven. Hugs, Cathy and Schnibbles

karen @ badlandsquilts

I am so sorry for your loss. Thank you for sharing your friend and companion with us, she was truly delightful to read about.


Oh, Carrie. I'm so sorry you've lost your Rosie girl. All of us who read your blog have fallen for her over the years and will miss photos of her sweet face. I like thinking she is keeping your mom company again! Sending you a hug . . .
