Never Forgotten (Page 2/3)
Pets are like family, and saying goodbye can be one of the hardest things we do. Our pets live on through our memories, and because of this, will never be forgotten.
MollyOwned by Rachel & Rob
We had to say goodbye to our beautiful Molly at the end of August. Molly was no ordinary dog, she was loved by all who met her. Gentle, kind, funny and unique. We so loved her and miss her terribly. We are very grateful that she lived 15 long and happy years with us and she made us smile each day of her life with us. Thanks Moll, for teaching us all so much about compassion and what really matters in life. We love and miss you always xxx
BayleyOwned by Fran Pearson
Bayley, my handsome little man. Passed away very suddenly in my arms on Thursday 19th July 2018 from a pulmonary embolism, aged 10 years 8 months. Thank-you for being you and for teaching me how to love unconditionally. For being my best friend and reminding me of the joy of simple walks and pleasures when times were tough...never forgotten...never replaced, love from mam. xxx
AlfieOwned by Bob and Diane Redhead
Alfie made our life complete and we are lost without him. He was full of collie character, fun and mischief. We had a 'talking' collie, a loyal friend and companion. He soon had us trained and would take us on long country walks filled with lots of fun, throwing sticks and laughter. What a character he was. He made lots of doggy friends and would often be admired by their owners. We loved him dearly and were repaid a hundred fold. If only we could have had him longer, that's the sadness that his life was cut short by illness. But we will be forever grateful that he came into our lives, turned them upside down with his cheeky ways. He can never be replaced and will be forever missed and loved, but we hope one day to have another doggy friend, not a replacement, but another little character who we can love and be loved by. So Alfie, many many thanks from the bottom of our hearts for all your love and loyalty and for teaching us so much about dogs that we didn't know before. You were truly one in a million and we will love and miss you forever.
OzOwned by Rachel & Andrew Griffiths
Cared for by Rachel and Andrew. We only shared your life for a brief moment, but what fun we all had. You were a true gentleman and an absolute delight to care for. A handsome boy with many friends at Oak Tree, you made everyone smile – thank you Oz, we all miss you. Andrew & Rachel & Rachel too xx
MerlinOwned by Dave Lewis
Merlin came to us in 2003 and left us January 2017 aged 14. He was a real character, loyal to a fault and loved by everyone he met. We spent hours on the fells around Keswick and when we left Cumbria for the Midlands his love of the hills and the outdoors never diminished. He went everywhere with us, returning to Keswick at least once a year he was back home. when my time comes we will return to the Lakes together. Sleep well my friend, always missed, always loved.
FreyaOwned by Jane Archbald
Had to say goodbye to our wonderful little girl on 12th November. We adopted her when she was 6 and had her in our lives for 6 wonderful years. She was a well travelled little lady, she spent several years of her life in France and liked nothing better than to jump into our campervan and go on another adventure with us. She made many journeys back to the UK from our then home in the Charente. We moved back to the UK 3 years ago and she settled down very well to our new home in Scotland. Two years past in October she was diagnosed with Lymphoma and given between 2 and 4 months to live. Amazingly she lived way longer than the time given. We feel so blessed to have had her with us for all that extra time, but are finding it hard to come to terms with the loss of our wonderful funny little lady, and my best friend
BellaOwned by Oak Tree
Looking after rescue animals can be very rewarding but there are also bittersweet times if one of them becomes seriously ill while in our care. We are heartbroken to have to announce that one of our much loved, longer term dogs, Bella, has recently succumbed to a very swift acting and aggressive form of cancer. We all dearly want a happy-ever-after ending for the dogs in our care and although it did not happen for Bella, we like to think that she was happy with us. Bella slipped away with dignity, surrounded by the people who loved and cared for her. Often referred to as ‘Princess’, Bella enjoyed being a diva. She spent much of her daytime in the office being pampered. She loved her walks but woe betide any cat that dared to pop up in front of her. She had a special harness made as she would wriggle out of conventional ones. Bella was our very own ‘Naughty But Nice’ and much loved dog.
Cloud Owned by Judith and Stuart Swinsco
Cloud was a 3 legged black Lurcher. We only had 2 1/2 years together before tetanus took him from us in November 2017.A gentle soul, he became a therapy dog and worked in various care homes and who gave companionship and comfort to all his elderly friends, a dog loved by both his family and everyone who came into contact with him. The loss of our companion and “pal” has left a hole in all our lives, a dog in a million, our pride and joy. Judith & Stuart (Mr & Mrs Cloud)
