    Well this is my last day with Amy and I am gutted.

    Not all of you know Irina and I have parted for good over my father sadly.

    Amy is young still and requires miles of attention, I cant walk her an Irina loves the dogs to bits (only thing she does love:cry::RollEyes:) Amy is such a loving dog and its braking my heart, but its for the best i feel.

    Bruno stays with me as it an old fellow now so need a lot less exercise and is calmer.

    Oh well that my heart poured out.

    No consolation "John",, but look to the future with your dad & Bruno,,

    And the summer that is just round the corner, and all the friends you have in this caring community, the funsters. :thumb:

    Hi John!

    Wont Irina give you any oportunity to take Amy now and then?
    You must be very sad anyway.... My dog is near 15y now and each morning i'm waiting for him to wake up and come around to have his morning cuddle and when he's late... i can't help thinking that he might be sleeping for ever...

    John

    Feel for you both, you and Bruno, you are really going to miss her, hope Irina lets you visit.
    As has been said, you've got loads of friends and only have to shout for support
    Try and keep smiling and believe it will get better (as someone once said when I was going through a bad patch - Life's a bitch and then it has puppies!!)

    amy goes to irana

    Hi John,

    Sorry to hear that you are losing amy, just hope that bruno will be ok on his own, but I am sure he will get lots of reassurance and hugs from you and your dad, and from all the other funsters when we see you all. We have 2 dogs and they cant bear to be parted even in the house, we have 2 dog beds but they both sleep on the same one. Keep your chin up luv and we will see you at Newark, cant do much else as we are too far away.
    Cheers,
    Mick & Sheila (runrig) :Nowink: :thumb:

    Hi John, you are not losing her she is just leaving home, time will make life easier.
    Best wishes. I do hope Bruno will be ok on his own, I know our two hate to be parted.

    Well it's just Bruno now.

    I know I have done the right thing but real hard to hand her over.

    You know she'll be really well cared for John, whatever your differences with Irina, and I'm sure you'll get to see her. Hope Bruno doesn't fret without his toy girl, but I'm sure it will be a lot easier for you. Hope to see you at meets sometime again with him...

    My dad woke in a dreadful state last night and was worried sick about Amy.

    He's always been a dog person but over the last 3 years and his alzheimer's progressing shown less interest in the dogs.

    Took me nearly an hour to console him and stop him weeping (not seen him do that since mum died) finally assuring him Amy would be looked after just fine.

    Just goes to show his brain is still working although very cruelly most of the time.

    Another reminder why i love my dad so much:Wink:

    Hi John, just read through your post, made me feel sad reading it. I hope Bruno is'nt pinning too much for Amy. It may be a blessing in disguise for you as all your time and energy is needed to look after Dad.Keep your chin up

    You're a great son to him John.:thumb:

    The only thing you can do is reassure him she'll be OK which I'm sure you have done.

    I'm sure you'll both miss Amy.I really hope you get chance to still see her.

    They become part of the family don't they?
