My darling Molly, I can't believe you're no longer here in body with me, I miss you so very much.  I'll never forget the night I brought you home, you curled up on the seat like a seasoned traveller.  Molly we went through so very much together & you taught me so much.
Having been pancreatic for 4 years I always thought that would be what would take you.  Only 10 days before your first stroke you were enjoying a swim in the lake, water being you very favourite place.  It was discovered your heart wasn't doing so well but I held onto the hope that with the drugs & extra TLC you'd get better.  It was then such a shock when after yet another stroke your body gave up, it was tired, it had fought so hard but now you'd had enough.

13 years to the day I fetched you home, you left for the bridge.

Molly my darling, I really hope that you're now free of the pain & tiredness.  I hope your best friend Barney was waiting for you & that now you can both enjoy the lovely clear water lakes, chasing bunnies & looking for frogs.

Run free sweetheart, until we meet again .......

Tragically had to be given sleep to prevent any further suffering.
We're still in shock at the loss of Taz & will put an appropriate memoir on the site when we feel ready.

Our "Backchatting Barney", our main man!

You left us so suddenly, not much time to prepare, you were so very brave.

You brought us so much happiness & even more laughter with your hilarious antics, knowing just how to play the game to wind up the girls, running off with the ball, just because you could, not because you wanted it!!  The dancing with the hoover isn't the same without you here telling us off although we're sure we can sometimes hear you telling us!!

Barney, our main man, you have left such a huge hole in all of our hearts that you could never, ever, be forgotten.

We hope that the bridge is great fun & that you are enjoying your spirit life, playing ball & chasing the bunnies!

Sleep well Barney ~ until we meet again

 Little Belle, your life had hardly begun before it was time to say goodbye.

With us for such a short time but leaving a lifetimes impression.

Alway's loved & never forgotten.

Run free at the bridge my little sweetheart.


To our darling “Tinkerbelle”, you loved to give us hell!

You loved to bring us your slugs & bugs but would never give up your

games of tugs!

You loved your cuddles, but on your terms and played with anything that

might have germs!

You loved the car and travelled far, you’ll never get to Devon but now my darling Belle, you’re in heaven.

Despite only being with us for a few short weeks, you’ve taken a piece of our hearts with you to heaven, you will always be in our memories and never forgotten.

Belle, you were one of a kind!!

We all miss you desperately but we’re sure you’re now giving your new

mates’ hell!!

Until we meet again one day, remember you’ll always be in our thoughts.


All our love & cuddles to our Belle in heaven, sleep tight little Belle




Last Night


I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.

I could see that you were crying.  You found it hard to sleep.  I whined to you 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,

You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.

I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.

I want to re-assure you, that I am not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.

I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "it's me".

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.

I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

It's possible for me, to be so near you every day.

To say to you with certainty, "I never went away".

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew ......

in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over ...... I smile and watch you yawning and say,

"good night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning".

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,

I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.

Be patient, live your journey out ...... then come home to be with me.
