Our Dear Freda

Our dear Freda, aka DeltaBunny, aka Fog Dog, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge today after a short illness. She passed peacefully.



She loved the tule fog. There was a heavy fog this morning, perhaps a harbinger.



A quiet hollowness pervades our home. This film was shot one week ago.

We thank all of Freda's pup, c-a-t, bird and hamster friends who filled her life and our lives with such great friendship and laughter.

Rest in Peace dear Freda. We miss you.

oh we are sooooooooooooo sorry and upset to read this news.

My Jeannie still keeps the lovely Holiday card Freda sent us last year, "Foggy Holidays" on her desk by the computer. It is here in front of her right now as her tears are falling.

Freda was one of our favourite pups, and always so kind to us.

We stopped blogging - but Freda was one of the jewels we missed so much.

Run free Sweet Freda, you will be sadly missed.

I am so sad to read this. Freda was one of my first blogging friends. My humans have become so busy with their work and rescue stuff that we didn't have as much time to read blogs, but we always thought of Freda. In fact, yesterday we saw a Shepherd mix that reminded us of her, with the same sweet face and floppy ears.

We love you Freda.
