Rest in peace, Reggin. I truly wish we could have saved you.
Some passings are bittersweet, but I can't find anything but sadness to fill the hole that Reggin left in the world and our hearts. The earth grew a bit darker when you left, sweet boy. RIP and keep watching over your girl.
Goodbye Reggin. I wish you could have been saved.
RIP, Reg. SFD put it better than I ever could have.
RIP Reg. You lived and loved well.
I have been thinking of this nonstop, and I know some people are ready to move on but I needed to have some sort of closure for this. It's a strange feeling, to mourn the loss of a dog you've never known in person. I needed to do something, so I made a memorial video from photos that have been posted of Reggin over the years here. I hope no one minds this, I'm truly not trying to do anything but offer a tribute to a dog we all grew to love and care for.
If anyone wants to see it, it's here: YouTube - In Memory Of Reggin
If you feel this is in poor taste, I apologize. I just wasn't sure what else to do.
R.I.P Reggin. Run free and tell Mikado I miss him everday and can't wait untill the day comes that we will be together again.
SFD-That video was a tear jerker
Very nicely put. I was always very fond of him. Seeing pictures of him and Madison or even the with him and the new pup always brought a smile to my face. Losing him was a tragedy.
Rest in Peace
Thank you so much, Keri. We needed that.
And our boy Reggin deserves it.
You know I haven't posted on any of this since it's inception and never really wanted to at all. I've lurked the story and it's sad...really sad. All of it--the drama, the reality, the efforts of so many people who cared. What a waste.
It hurts to know he was scared. This is what bothers me most. Why? Why did this happen?
He's gone. He was a good boy.
Beautiful, Keri, thanks for the video.
Reggie, you did not get what you deserved. For that I am eternally sorry. May we all do better by all the other animals in our lives.
Beautiful video. I made sure not to watch it until my husband left because I knew I'd cry. Sure enough I was bawling by the end of it. I've never missed a dog so much that wasn't my own.
I'm not the sentimental type, I guess how I grew up has a lot to do with that. Most of the time I'm one to say "that's a shame" and that's all the depth of emotion that I get. I've learned to become callous to the realities of life and death, as it surrounds me on a day to day basis (with this war, etc and knowing a lot of the people involved) and I've come to a realization today.
Reggie was a casualty of war. Not the war you see on television every day, and there are no IED's, but it's a war all the same. There's the distinct possibility that breed had nothing to do with the shelter's decision to euthanize poor Reggie, but there's also that same possibility that it had everything to do with it. So with that in mind, I feel this part of a "soldiers prayer" is befitting of Reggie.
