Posted on January 26th, 2016

photoOn the 13th January we had to make the hard and painful decision to help our beautiful boy Robbie over the bridge after a short illness.  Our hearts are truly broken.  Robbie was a stunning ambassador of the breed.  He represented everything that a dog should be.  He was admired by many and those who knew him were smitten with him.  He had a heart of gold and temperment second to none.  He loved everyone and everyone loved him.  As a show dog, although he gained several titles, he never truly got the recognition that he deserved.  Most importantly, as a companion and member of our furry family he is irreplaceable.  His final resting place is his favourite spot in the garden where he loved to soak up the sun on a warm day.  Rest in peace big man until we meet again XX

“As much as I loved the life and all the times we played,

I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.

I saw a wondrous image then of a place that’s trouble free

where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

I saw the most beautiful rainbow, and on the other side

were meadows rich and beautiful – lush and green and wide!

And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see

were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!

My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new

and I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I’m alright.

That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright glow pierced the night.

Twas the glow of many candles shining bright and strong and bold

and I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.

For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,

We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.

So whenever you need to find me, we’re never far apart,

if you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.”
