Brodie dog at Lily Pond Sanctuary


Rainbow Bridge. Forever in our hearts.

Brodie arrived in September 2018 with his friends Jeb and Tig . A local family’s house had been struck by lightening and burned down. The family had to move out during the repair but couldn’t take the dogs, so we agreed to give them a home.  Brodie is a senior Springer Spaniel who used to be a hunting dog. Extremely shy but very sweet, he has an award-winning smile and loves a game of fetch.  

As the 2021 new year approached, he began to slow down.  Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his throat for which the prognosis was poor.  When he could no longer eat or drink, we saw that Brodie was ready to make his transition and called the vet.  We quietly and gently said goodbye to our beloved friend here at home where he was surrounded by the other dogs and those who loved him.
