Title: Rally 6/10/2002 - 2/20/2013
Post by: Phyllis Sanders on February 21, 2013, 06:31:05 AM
It's with a heavy heart that Rally lost his valiant fight with prostate adenocarcinoma last night.  He accomplished a lot in NADAC agility in spite of his senior handler.  He died in my arms as I carried him into the emergency vet.

Phyllis, my heart goes out to you. Rally was a special boy and he gave you many years of wonderful love and devotion. His love for agility was so apparent every time you stepped to line. He was amazing to watch and he was so happy to be your teammate! He will not be forgotten. Rest in Peace Rally boy.

What a wonderful, happy and exciting life you gave this little boy!  He was a lucky "kid" and so many in our agility world will always remember him.  Rest in peace, Rally.

We will all remember the joy from both you and Rally when you were together.  You were blessed to have him and he was blessed to have you.  What a great team and joyful memories both on and off the agility field.  It is so sad to lose those great dogs and the pain of living without them.

Good journey to you, Rally, we will all miss you.

Dear Phyllis,

We met you and Rally at the 2009 Champs in TN . . .

We wish we had some "good words" that would ease your pain and heal your heart; but . . . we haven't found them yet . . .

Rally was fighting a fight against a most vicious "enemy" . . . he gave his all, as you did you . . .

You both had a number of GREAT YEARS TOGETHER . . . never long enough; but both of you are so much richer for your time together . . .

We do the very best that we can for our kids . . . all too often, there comes a time when it's out of our hands . . . and the best that we can do is to honor the trust that our kids have placed in us to do right by them . . .

With sincere sympathies and understanding . . .

Hugs & wags,

Al & Barb Ceranko, Dred, Gael & Pellinore (OH) 

It's with a heavy heart that Rally lost his valiant fight with prostate adenocarcinoma last night.  He accomplished a lot in NADAC agility in spite of his senior handler.  He died in my arms as I carried him into the emergency vet.

So sorry, Phyllis.  It's obvious that you did everything for him, and he gave it back in spades.  Run in peace, little one.

Phyliss,  Audrey and I were saddened to hear of your loss of Rally.  It is sad that we don't see each other and our dogs as often as we once did, but at a time of loss one realizes how much we do miss old friends.
