    Sad, I know the feeling. Best addressed in a few months time after you have recovered by a replacement. :)

    Sad day Dave, he looks like he lived life though, reminds me of an old uncle of mine did everything to the limit :)

    My sympathies to you and Jake. Sad times. But the Ginger terrorist looks like he had a ball.

    A good stretch for a dog Dave, it is said the happier they are, the longer they live. Looks as though smoochee pooch was one happy pup.
    It's hard me ol' mate when you lose a pet you have loved, only consolation I can offer is, you've had 16 years of love, and loving memories too.
    Commiserations Dave and Dawn

    So sad to lose a good friend and one of the family. Our neighbour lost their border collie a couple of days ago and we will miss her too as we looked after her for two weeks a while back and met most days over the field on our walks.


    I stood there by your bed last night, I came to have a peep,
    I could see that you’d been crying, you found it hard to sleep.
    I whined to you so softly, as you brushed away a tear,
    It’s me, I haven’t left you, I’m well, I’m fine, I’m here.


    I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
    I was thinking of the many times, your hand reached down to me.
    I was with you at the shops today, whilst you walked along the aisle,
    I saw you pause at the pet food, and hesitate a while.



    I walked with you toward the car, as you fumbled for the key,
    I gently placed a paw on you, and said “It’s only me.
    I was with you out the back today, stood at the washing line,
    I watched you as you hung the clothes, to dry in warm sunshine.



    I loved our walks around the field, sometimes on our own,
    But on the days we met our friends, I always got a bone.
    I nearly always loved my food, until quite near the end,
    And even when I didn’t eat, you were still my dearest friend.



    You look so very sad sometimes, sat in that armchair,
    I try so hard to let you know, that I am standing there.
    The day is nearly over now, I smile and watch you yawn,
    I’ll say “goodnight, God Bless my friend, I’ll see you in the morn.”

    Thanks everyone for the thoughts. Much appreciated. (y)

    No doubt we will be acquiring another rescue dog soon as Mrs Deluxe does the rehoming for the local rescue centre. I keep hoping that a flat coated retriever comes in...... that would make even Jake look bright ;)
