I may have been pestering you with my memories of Soffi, which I've been posting now and then.
To be able to go to the next chapter, I finally found out that she should be put to rest, I've had her
ashes in a box for over 2.5 years.

She always loved to go with Emma and me into the forest, and we often went to Knut's Lake, I hope
some of you can remember my photo stories from those walks.
Today we decided to take Soffi for her final walk to Knut's Lake.

It's a nice walk, just an hour away. Now it's fall, the trees have changed to yellow leaves.

We went to a small bay where Soffi often drank water:

It looked like a perfect place.

Soffi's final resting place, may she rest in peace.

it took me a year to be able to look at pictures of Biscuit and now, i treasure every one of them.

i still haven't spread his ashes. when i do, it will be a huge milestone.

your posting about this isn't pestering --- for me, it reflects a process we all go through when we lose a beloved member of the family.

Thank you for sharing your last walk with us. I hadn't yet found this board during the years with Soffi but I have enjoyed reading about her when she's mentioned.

She was a lucky girl to have been so loved.

Steinar, Soffi was so lucky to be loved by such a loving man as you! Your post brings tears to my eyes. I've enjoyed seeing her beautiful face with all the photos you've posted of her. She certainly was a special girl to you. May Soffi rest in peace.

:( :( ....all the memories of the ones we have lost to a better place will always be in our hearts :)


The loss of a loved one never ends in my opinion, it just gets a little more bearable with time. Soffi was a beautiful girl and I hope that her spirit gives you peace knowing that she is at rest in one of her most treasured places. I was not a member before Soffi went to the bridge but I have enjoyed and wept with all of your touching tributes to her. Only you know when it is the right time to let her spirit go.


Peace be with you...

Thank you for sharing those photos. I know how much Soffi meant to you, and even though I've never met you or Soffi, I cry every time you bring up her name. My doggie soulmate died almost nine years ago, and I still carry her ashes around in my car. More than anything in the world she loved to ride in the back of my pickup truck, which I know isn't safe, but I couldn't deny her such joy. So now her ashes always ride in the back of whatever vehicle I have. I don't know if I'll ever be able to let go of her remains. Soffi was a very lucky dog to be loved so much.

Thanks for sharing that with us. She was a beauty and I know very special to you. There's some on here don't know her life story and perhaps when you feel like it, it would be lovely to hear about Soffi.
