  19. Shelley

    This is a hard post to read Frances and probably harder to write. BeAnne was one of my favorite Social Media dogs. I’ll miss her shaggy little face. Sending my deepest condolences.

  20. Louise Whyte

    Oh no, I am so so sorry, such a beautiful spirited girl.

    Can imagine how heartbroken you are but what a wonderful happy life she had. Not many dogs are so lucky to have all that outdoors to play in and be so loved.

  21. Christine

    Dear Frances – I am so sorry. Our dogs never live long enough and no matter how much we know that, it still is so very hard when their time is up . She was very much loved and had a beautiful life ruling her domain. That was your gift to her.

  31. Sherry Walter

    Like so many others I’ve been dreading this post, holding my breath every time I opened your blog. You may not know pure love if you haven’t loved a dog but by the same token you haven’t known pure sorrow if you haven’t lost one.

    Dear Frances, I am so very sad to read your headline today. We all knew this day was coming…but I was hoping it was still a long way off. You were such a good Mum for Her Majesty…..taking her on walking adventures ….letting her scout out the rabbits…always giving her what she needed to live for a few months more. I know very well how hard it is to say goodbye to a beloved pet. You gave her a good life and you can be assured of that. Your good, loving memories will last as long as you do. God Bless You and your family with peace.

  33. Susan O'Neill

    So sorry for your loss, she will be so missed but was lucky to have you all and a lifetime of love.

  34. Yvonne

    So very sorry Francis to hear Beanne has left you and your family…what a dear wee dog. She had my heart the first time I saw her sleeping/riding on the back of one of your horses. Peace to you and your family in these days of memories and sorrow…Yvonne

  35. Louise Stopford

    So so very sorry Frances to hear that you have lost your beloved BeAnne. My heart goes out to you and your family.

  36. Kate B

    Vale Her Maj, Princess BeAnne.

    My heart dropped when I read the title. Take care of yourself and her other loyal servants in these difficult times.

  37. Sam

    Even though I never met her, I felt I knew her. Deepest sympathies to you and the family.
    Going to hug Little Miss Maine Coon now….I am so sorry to hear this news.

  38. Amy

    Run free, BeAnne — forever in search of rabbitses.

    Heartfelt condolences, Frances. Wishing you and your family peace. May the good memories soon outweigh the sadness.

  39. May

    I’m so very sorry. I feel like I’ve come to know BeAnne a bit from your blog and grew to love her. I know you love her and gave her the very best of care; a very good and long life.

    I pray BeAnne’s in heaven digging up rabbit holes to her heart’s content.

  40. Kris

    An indomitable spirit, she will run forever in the fields of time and live forever in your memories.
    My heart aches for you.

  41. Linda

    My heart aches for you, Frances. I’ve been where you are, and the grief runs so deep. I hope you can find some solace knowing you gave her the best life you could, and from your many, many photos it’s so apparent she had a wonderful life.

  42. Terri

    My deepest condolences to you on BeAnne’s passing. What a blessing to have had her in your life, and you in hers! Although I never actually met BeAnne, I felt I knew her from your wonderful photos and stories–and I feel her loss all the way across the pond in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, where I live now. It’s one of the most dog-friendly towns anywhere. Our very old pup thinks she’s already in Heaven. BeAnne lived in Heaven with you too! xx
