Pets it turns out, also have last wishes before they die, but only known by veterinarians who put old and sick animals to sleep. The fact is that 90 % of owners don't want to be in a room with a dying animal. People leave so they don't see their pet leave. But they don't realize that it's in these last moments of life that their pet really needs them.

It's inevitable that they die before you. Don't forget that you were the centre of their life. Maybe they were just a part of you. But they are also your family. No matter how hard it is, don't leave them. Don't let them die in a room with a stranger in a place they dont like. Vets find it very painful to watch how pets cannot find their owner in the last minutes of their life. They dont understand why they left them. Veterinarians do everything possible to ensure that animals are not so scared. But they are complete strangers to them. Don't be a coward who thinks it's too painful for you. Think about the pet. Endure this pain for the sake of your pets. Be with them until the end.

Run free lovely girl.

Far away on the other side”

Gone way before her time. DM is the most awful disease, it stole her body, but her spirit never left. She lived each day to the full taking everything in her stride.
Tei went to sleep for the last time giving me kisses, and I won't ever forget the moment her heart stopped while mine kept beating and broke in two.
Sleep tight Princess, It has been a pleasure, you were the sweetest little soul ever, and I would do it all again just have you in my life.

Will love and always miss you sweetheart, our memories will last forever

I cry not for myself but for the life that you still had to live . My darling Samantha you were such a beautiful girl and with such a loving temperament. You would have sat by me all day long if you could have . Then DM hit you and us with a storm, it brought you down with avengeance. We’ve never known this disease before but boy don’t we know it now and we are doing all we can to never breed a dog with this hellish disease again . You would have been 9 in April and had so much more life to live and be loved. We miss you so very much sweetest girl . You will always be in our hearts May you Rest in Peace darling Sam

 “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are.”

Samhaven What Time Is It. (Jack)3/2/2006 - 12/5/2018


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'm 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 everyday. 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.

My little Puppy.
You came here as a puppy, only a few weeks old,
A lanky gangly ball of fluff, but you were oh so bold.
We set off on a journey as new forever friends
And I promised I would love you, until your journeys end.
In those very early days I taught you right from wrong,
We only went for short walks as your wee bones grew strong.
No matter where I had to go, you always tagged along.
In spring we ran through meadows, or wandered by the stream,
You splashed in puddles, rolled in mud, you were living the dream,
Of being loved and cared for, happy to share my life,
Unlike humans in my life you never bought me strife,
In Summer we met so many friends, going off for a walk,
You ran with all your furry friends, if only you could talk.
And then at night we snuggled up, together, tired & warm,
I watched you twitching as you slept, content and safe from harm.
I took you to the seaside, how you loved the sea,
A lifetime of adventures lay in wait for you & me.
When Autumn came you had such fun, chasing falling leaves,
You had to leave your calling card on every single tree!
When Winter came you loved the snow & loved to be outside,
I could not get you back indoors, no matter how I tried,
I told you all my secrets, my worries & my fears, 
You very gently kissed my face to wipe away the tears.
I’m certain that you understand exactly how I feel,
And every time that I was sad, you helped my heart to heal. 
We went on mad adventures, in wind & rain & snow,
You never seem to leave my side no matter where I go.
But time just seemed to fly past, you started to slow down,
Your bones are getting weaker, your smile is now a frown.
Your eyes have lost their sparkle although you try to smile,
You haven’t been for a nice long walk, not for quite a while.
Each time you try to follow me, your legs give way & cave,
You know I would give anything, your precious life to save.
There’s only one thing I can do, to free you from the pain.
And as you slowly slip away, I know we’ll meet again.
So go have fun at Rainbow Bridge, but save a place for me,
The most difficult thing we have to do, is set our loved ones free.
You will not be forgotten, not in a million years,
The last image that I have of you is blurred by all my tears.

Pauline Bradbury Sept 2017.
RIP Toffee. 20/9/17.

Owned, loved and adored by Jackie and Keith Medler and leaves a huge pawprint in so many people's hearts.......

Picking up the pieces of our broken hearts, the task is rather daunting, we don't know where to start
We hold onto the memories and handle them with care, the emptiness and anguish is just too much to bare
There is nothing left inside of us except the tears we cry. 'They' say it will get 'easier' as time passes by
The time we spent together, we will always hold so dear.
You were taken from us far too soon,  we had still so much left to do
Each day is full of sadness, bitterness and grief,  we are trying hard to 'let you go' but still in disbelief 
Someday we'll be together to see that setting sun.....  Until then, dear Costa, run free, you are forever in our hearts

Our beautiful girl taken away from us after a short illness. Such a live wire even when, unbeknown to us, she was so very poorly. She always lived life to the full and there was never a dull moment with Tara in the house.

'Its so quiet without you my precious, there is no one to dance around the kitchen and tell me to hurry up at mealtimes, no one barks when I sneeze and no one has yet taken your place between us on the bed at night. Although you have passed on quite a few of your naughty tricks to Teisha, your little playmate, thankfully that doesnt include eating our duvet, but the pigeons will never be safe in our garden.

Run free Tara, we will never forget you.

Love you forever, you leave a huge pawprint on our hearts. Runited with Topper.
