White Dog is still shocked over the news that her friends in Saskatchewan, had a horrible house fire that claimed the life of Jazzy, their beautiful, happy-spirited foster dog. Her heart overflows with grief over the pain and self-imposed guilt Gwyn must feel although we know she tried beyond heroic efforts to save the little girl that she had already saved once just by providing Jazzy with a loving, caring foster home. Casper, Nikki and Buddy are OK and for that White Dog is overjoyed. It is the "why" of horrible things happening to good people (two- and four-legged) that eludes not just White Dog but all of us.

We know that Jazzy is running free and unscathed and happy in her true forever home on the other side of the Bridge...and know she will greet her foster family with kisses of welcome when it is each of their turns to cross. White Dog hopes that Gwyn finds some small comfort in knowing that so many send caring sympathy. May all of them feel our arms and paws wrapped around them sharing healing love to ease the anguish of the horrible tragedy.

White Dog believes it is time for the tides to turn. Our community has been plagued with so much sadness these past months. Please join her in a moment's prayer that Spring's Hopefulness showers our blog family with better fortune.

P.S. Anyone interested in leaving a memorial donation, Jazzy was from the New Hope Rescue http://www.newhoperescue.org/2010/02/18/in-memory-of-jazzy There is a donation button on the left side.

hey Siku Marie,

I have been thinking about you all day. I am sorry your Heart is still hurting so terribly over your friends' horrific incident. And I am sorry I did not really answer your question last night as to the "why." I just could not think of any comforting thing to say at the time.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your friends. And we hope Gwen can release her guilt, for she has no need for guilt. She did all she could, and that should comfort her. She gave it her all to save Jazzy, but Jazzy was needed in Heaven more, probably for some important mission. Gwen is a heroine for her efforts.

I will check on you later.

Although we never personally met Jazzy, our hearts break too. Our parents snuggled us up extra close last night and after we wiped the tears away, we told each other how much we love one another.

Beautiful tribute for a terribly sad story.

Such sad news. We'll be praying that they find peace despite the tragic event.

The construction is only half-way done. When my mom said major renovation, I didn't anticipate it was the MAJOR!

hey Siku Marie,

Just wanted to wish you a good night and hope that your Heart is feeling a little better. I know the grief of your loss will be felt for a while, but please know that much love and prayers and healing thoughts are being sent toward your friends and their surviving pups.

What a wonderful happy tribute to Jazzy on the New Hope site. She sounds like she was one amazing pup and I am sorry I did not know her. I wish everyone could have her cheer and positive outlook on life. She left a great legacy.
