Sad Tidings

 Rock HQ received some sad news the other day, Lucy, the Dolyhir Clan Great Great Grandma has had to be put to sleep just days short of her 11th birthday. Lucy was the first Berner I ever met, a lovely girl who gave us Rocky, who met Reba and so the Dolyhir Clan was born. She was fit and healthy almost to the end, she went a bit off her food and after a few days the vet found liver and pancreas problems and the sad decision was mad to put her to sleep.
Many of you will have met Lucy at the first ever Annual Dolyhir Bernese Mountain Dog Treasure Hunt 2012 along with her owner Amanda and Rocky's brother Chester. Here's a nice pic of the clan gathering, three generations as Buddy is her grandson from Rocky and Molly.
Its always sad when a Berner crosses the rainbow bridge but Lucy had a full and happy life, a long one too, and she will be with Montana again.


  1. hugs to all, and bravo to lucy's grand life. i am sure. jesse was there as well to greet her. you will be missed sweet lady

  2. Oh sorry I missed this, just spotted it reading back. I never met Lucy but did manage to meet Dexter before he passed back in March (dad's dad).
    Hugs to the Dolyhir Clan
