Hi

So sorry to her off his pacing away, hopefully to a better place, I do hope you will be able to celebrate his life soon, and remember all the good times.

Best Regards

my mate Max had cancer for sometime, never had the courage to take him to the Vet, simply made excuses about his wagging tail, in the end we were away for a couple of days and he just collapsed on the way to the fields, which was his favourite place to go. End result of my selfishness was he died alone in a strange vets office. We had 6 months of being poochless then Clair, ( my Boss ) decided we couldn't be without a dog, so we got 2.
I still miss my boy though.
Point is, you cared enough to do the right thing, unlike me. You had the courage to do what was best for your friend, unlike me. I will never make that mistake again. Good fortune to you, and have joy in your memories

Thank you all for your good wishes....still bloody crying!! Have told our youngest daughter ....boy that was hard. We chose to have Jeeves cremated on his own so that we can bury his ashes in the garden (would have needed a jcb to dig a hole he was such a big lad!!) so am just searching for an apt rose to plant in his favourite spot in my rose bed....where he was always getting told off for sitting....bet my neighbours will miss me shouting "Jeeves...come off there" which he would generally ignore!!
Thank you all once again
Annie

Will try and post a picture when I can fathom out how to do it!!

So sorry to hear of your loss Annie. You have done your best for Jeeves and he passed away peacefully with both of you with him. Cry away, before too long you will be able to remember all the good times.

Four-Feet

I have done mostly what most men do,
And pushed it out of my mind;
But I can't forget, if I wanted to,
Four-Feet trotting behind.

Day after day, the whole day through --
Wherever my road inclined --
Four-feet said, "I am coming with you!"
And trotted along behind.

Now I must go by some other round, --
Which I shall never find --
Somewhere that does not carry the sound
Of Four-Feet trotting behind.

Rudyard Kipling

Annie I lost my "old buddy" eight years ago and yes it's a tough call. The few words posted above says it all I think.
If crying helps you........cry.

Kind regards

Len

>>Here<< Annie.

It was the day after last August bank holiday for us. Worst day of my life I think - it was the act of taking Lucy that was so hard.

We were not going to have another dog for quite a while, but the new one is on my lap as I type, biting my fingers like hell because she is teething.

She will never replace the old girl, but for us it was the right decision.

Condolences

Thank you again all. You really are a great bunch.
Len...that poem is lovely....just wish I could stop snivveling!!
Zeb...Thanks for the info will have a try later when I can actually see what I am doing!!
Think a glass of wine is in order now...feels like the longest day ever.

By the way...ordered some rose bushes,,,Remember Me and Golden Smiles....both seemed fitting for our lad.

Kind Regards To You All
Annie
