Perhaps we could have loved you better, Haggis, but we could not have loved you more.

You were small.

You were handsome and charming.

You were serious.

You aged gracefully.

You were loved.

Your crate is not nearly as empty as our hearts.

We still relive our last day together with you, old friend. Holding you by turns in our arms, drinking in the fresh, earthy dirt smell of your harsh coat, slightly damp from quiet tears. Our noses buried in your coat, inhaling warmth and memories, exhaling dread, loss and ache. Feeling and savoring the soft weight of your trust, cradled in our arms, our hearts, our lives.

Brad, I don't know what to say--your grief must be raw as hell right now. God bless, I am so sorry you lost this beautiful old guy. I will keep you and your family in as much white light as I can manage.

Oh no Brad. Steve and I are so sorry to hear that Haggis has passed away today. It was a pleasure to have met him in Bend just a few weeks ago. RIP Haggis

Brad,

We have them for such a short amount of time. Especially when compared to the huge amount of love they give us. I am very sorry to hear of your loss. Haggis was a wonderful dog. My heart is heavy.

As you have held us in your ciber arms...so do WE at this time in your life. Such a wonderful. exciting life Haggis had. There are many, many memories to help you and your family through the days, and many pictures to relive the moments of laughter and joy!! His life was as full as your heart. (((hugs and prayers))) May you find as much comfort here as we do from your words of wisdom, heart felt thoughts, and stories from us (I found/find your stories and insight SO very helpful).

Just opened the forum on my computer, saw the heading "Haggis," and felt my heart sink to my shoes. So so sorry to hear about the loss of this perfect little dog. If we are really lucky, I think we get one or a few really special dogs during our lives, and I will bet you feel that way about Haggis. What a grand gent he was, Brad.

I'm shedding tears here, too. Here's to all the old dogs, and the really special dogs...and to Haggis, in particular.

Everytime I hear of a Cairn's passing it takes me back - - - a pain that may dull with time but never completely disappears - - we love them so. God bless!

What a beautiful cairn and what a wonderful life for Haggis and you and your family. My heart is breaking for your saddnes. Little paw prints on the heart never go away, but hope they are softer with wonderful memories for you soon.
