Luna Mangum Holt
April 2000 - April 11, 2013

She died in my arms yesterday afternoon at 5:30 pm.

She was the best friend I ever had.

I will miss her until the end of my days.


  1. Oh, my darling girl. There are just no words that can comfort you.
    There is a hole in your heart that can never be filled in the same way she did.
    I had the great honor of knowing her and for this I am grateful.

    I am so, so sorry.


  2. So sorry, Michele. She was a fine and noble friend. You will keep her in your heart, always. Lynell

  3. I'm so sorry. I'm glad you were there with her though at the last. She was a very polite and friendly dog when I met her.

  4. My sincere and heartfel sorrow for you and Jack, Finn, Cricket, Artemis and Gus.

  5. Ohhh I am so so sorry. I have tears in my eyes remembering losing my best friend. Always remember that you gave her the best life a dog could ever ask for and she knows how much you loved her. This is the hardest part of having pets, but all the best parts make up for it. You'll always hold her in your heart and have all those wonderful memories! Sending hugs through the internet waves...

  6. Oh. I am so sorry my friend. So sorry. She is beautiful and will always be.
    We are dealing with an old and sick dog, as you know. Our lab is off to the vet in a few hours, again, we can't pinpoint the exact issue but, at 12 years old, it is most certainly something and more tests are being done today.
    I had my boy before I even met my husband and he has seen me through the worst days I've had.
    It's so hard, isn't it? Why can't dogs live just a bit longer than 12 or 13 years.
    Blessings and love.

  7. Well Shit. This totally stinks. Wrapping my arms around you from the soggy northwest.

    I put my darling baby boy pug Gus to sleep after just 4 short years with me and I still miss him to this day (this was 2 years ago.) Sometimes, when I have this random thought about him or especially miss him extra hard (like tears pricking my eyes missing him) I like to think that it's him checking in with me.

    Luna girl - lived a pampered life and died peacefully surrounded by love. What a lucky dog.


  8. So sorry for your loss. That is a great picture of her.

  9. ((Michele)). It's hard. She was a beautiful dog, and you were her best friend. What more could she ask for? Laura

  10. How lucky you were to have each other. It's never long enough but I can think of nothing finer than what you shared. Big love to you all.

  11. Such heartbreaking news. So sorry.

  12. I'm so sorry. It's good to remember her always - that way she lives on....It is so sad that dogs don't have our longevity. Best to you...
