|If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons.
- James Thurber (1894-1961) U.S. humorist, illustrator.
|Our beautiful girl lost her fight with epilepsy this morning. She had over 15 consecutive fits in less than an hour. She was given overnight to try to recover but sadly this time it beat her. Mark and I are absolutely broken hearted. Thanks to Longridge vet and thanks to Duncan and Joanne from the Merseyside Greyhound Trust who have always had a soft spot for our girl. Will miss you. Safe journey and run free now. XX|
|Dogs are not our whole life|
but they make our lives whole.
|Willow died on 17 October 2016 aged just 7 after a short illness, much missed by his loving family.|
|We sadly lost our beloved Frankie on 9th February 2017.|
|He was taken very suddenly at the age of 8 and although heartbroken at losing him, we are relieved he did not suffer. We will always be grateful to Graham and Joanne for bringing us our mischievous, comical, loving and kind boy. We had just under 7 wonderful years with Frankie and he enriched our lives immensely. Sleep tight our handsome boy, you knew how much you were loved. Roy and Pete and your brother Harvey xxx|
If it is I grow frail and weak
And pain should wake me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done
For this last battle can't be won.
You will be sad, I understand,
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day, more than all the rest
Your love and friendship stand the test.
We've had so many happy years,
What is to come will hold no fears.
You'll not want me to suffer, so,
When the time comes please let me go.
I know in time you too will see
It is kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.
Do not grieve that it should be you
Who has to decide the thing to do.
We've been so close, us two these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
