|The dog has seldom been successful in pulling man up to its level of sagacity, but man has frequently dragged the dog down to his.
- James Thurber (1894-1961) U.S. humorist, illustrator.
|My secret favorite, Robbie the brindle. We only had you for eight weeks and you were taken from us by a heart attack. It shouldn't happen to such a lovely gentle dog, only four years old. We gave you our best and you responded with love.|
We will always miss you as will Vicky, your soulmate.
|A man may smile and bid you hail|
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail,
You know he's on the level.
Will Rogers. 1879 - 1935.

|In memory of my beautiful greyhound Jet who sadly passed away in the
early hours today. You were the apple of my eye, always happy, wagging
your tail and loved your snuggles on the bed. You brought me 9 years of
happiness and joy. I will never forget you my numpty. Sleeping with the
angels now and forever in my heart. Love you baby boy.|
|Big Bear came into our lives in November 2009. The most gentle of gentlemen, a complete charmer who brought us so much joy and so many giggles. We went on to adopt Layla (Lyrea Lassie) and they would have their daily race round the garden, curl up together on their beds and swap dinners. Our loss is immense because your gentleness filled us all with love. Run free gentle Bear xxx|

|This is our Baz who we believe to be a rampur greyhound who died last Sunday 15th Feb 2015 after becoming ill in January. He was a complete superstar, very loving and loyal and we are totally devastated by his loss. We know he is running around somewhere with Missy our border terrier cross who died 4th Jan 2014. See you later kids. Love you always.---Mum and Dad.|
I haven't gone and left you,
I'm here, but you can't see
How close I am beside you,
Yes Mum, it's really me.
Thank you for your kindness,
You've freed me from all pain,
I know you're sad, but don't be,
Soon we'll meet again.
Death is really not the end,
It's just a passing on
Into a world of brightness,
Where fear and pain is gone.
I'm free to run around and play
Just like I used to do.
Until we meet again Mum,
I'll wait here just for you.
