Razzle
3/7/2003 - 10/17/2020Today was a day I've dreaded for a very long time and to say I'm devastated is an understatement. Razzle came into our lives at 3 months old in June 2003 and left us today after 17.5 years. She is truly a miralce for making it as long as she did (by far the oldest dog I have ever known). Although she had some troubles in the more recent years, she was always resilient and never gave up on life because she knew her time wasn't up. Razzle was the glue of our family and had been the comfort through other losses we had encountered. I wish we had her here with us today, but that's the irony of it all. I had Razzle in my life for longer than I had a grandparent, relationships that seem secod nature for everyone, so her longevity in our lives really is a testament to how much she meant to my family. Razzle was always a patient, friendly, happy dog who put up with my taunting, teasing & dressing her up for photoshoots (see photos). The memories I have of her will last a lifetime and I know these pictures won't honor her enough for how much she meant to me and my family. Razzle was truly the #1 pet (as she wore as a tag on her collar) and I can't imagine life without her. Razzle, I you're in doggy heaven hopping fences and treating the whole outdoors like your backyard, as you did in our neighborhood. You will never be replaced and I can't thank you enough for the joy you brought us over the years. I'm thankful for all your love ,laughs and family bonding you brought us. Razzle you'll alwlays be a permanent member of our family, even from where you are now. Although I wish you could have lived forever, we are fortunate to give you a peaceful goodbye in your backyard. Love you forever.Jamie VailSterling, VirginiaOctober 24, 2020
