View Full Version : R.I.P Lego
It is with a very heavy heart that I convey the news of the passing of our dog Lego.
48 hours ago we were playing frisbee on the rapidly melting snow. Complete liver failure in the past couple days and now she's gone. It's hard to imagine this is a world without Lego.
She freaking loved skiing with you guys. Whenever we stopped to transition or rest - Lego would be whining to keep going.
I wish I could love anything for a second the way that dog loved me her whole life.

Dude...I am soooo sorry for your loss. I had hoped to ride with that pooch one day. Lego was one cool ass dog

Very, very sorry to hear that M@. My condolences to you and your family. RIP.

M@ I'm truly sorry for your loss

I'm so sorry to hear that. I've had a similar thing happen in the past, and I know how unbelievably much it hurts. Lego really was the coolest dog.

M@ I am so sorry! :( I've lost a dear pet and was stunned at how much it hurt--and she was a kitty. Dogs give so much more in such a tangible way.
Condolences to you and your family. The only blessing is that is was relatively quick. Animals can suffer, and we don't know it.
M@: Sorry to hear about Lego. Hopefully she is having fun in doggie heaven!
dude.... so sorry... so very sorry... that was a good dog there...
Affix and I were talking about Lego last weekend.

Wow.... so sudden! Lego will be missed but never forgotten. My condolences to you and your family M@. May Lego be playing in the frisbee fields of heaven!
Very sad news. Leggo was a real treasure.
My condolences to you and yours.

Awww, Mat I am so sorry to hear that. She looks adorable. How old was she?
03-26-2009, 01:25 PM
Sounds a lot like my old dog Blackie gone 8- years now
There's nothing in the world like the love of a good dog ....RIP

never met lego, but as an owner of 2 labs I hear ya.
they are 10 and 9 and i am not looking forward to those days...

Sad to hear about that M@. She was def. a good ski dog.
03-26-2009, 03:25 PM
So sorry to here M@. I am sure you have lots of memories to remember the great times you and your family have had with Lego.

Sincere condolences to you and yours. Never had the joy of meeting Lego, but saw many pics of her having great times with you and other lucky people who got to spend time with her. The loss of a dog is very difficult for their humans. The only consolation is what Seeker mentioned - at least she didn't suffer for long. RIP Lego

sorry for your loss -

sorry m@ ...it's never easy so lose a friend like that
03-26-2009, 11:38 PM
I'm not a dog-person, but a Lego was the kind of pooch that would make a guy reconsider. M@ I'm so sorry you lost her.

Hey M@~ As a dog lover who has been there more times than I care to remember, I understand your grief. You have lost a family member and yet you will have the fond memories forever. Take your time and then go find a fine pup and start building another friendship and more memories. Lego will look down & whine from dog heaven for you to keep going!
The Power Of The Dog
by Rudyard Kipling
There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.
Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie--
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart for a dog to tear.
When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find--it's your own affair--
But...you've given your heart for a dog to tear.
When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!);
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone--wherever it goes--for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart for the dog to tear.
We've sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we've kept 'em, the more do we grieve:
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-time loan is as bad as a long--
So why in Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?
Sorry to hear about your Lego, M@.
I'm coming up to Tuckerman's tomorrow w/ my 9-year-old daughter and our dog, who's going to have his first ski experience. His name's Kipling; after we read this poem we couldn't name him anything else.
Hope to see you up there.

Sorry Bro! Make sure you get out there....Lego wouldn't want it any other way!!! Once again, I'm so sorry :(

Im very sorry to hear that M@. :(
Lego was an amazing dog! Ill always remember the Hunter patch and lego laying in every puddle.
Again, very sorry. My condolences.

My condolences to you and your family. I am privileged to have skied with Leggo (as you may recall Windy also whines on the uphill because I go too slowly) and I saw how much she loved you. Rest in Peace.
