RUDY 16/11/2008
Rainbow Bridge -
Just this side of heaven is a place called rainbow bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to rainbow bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are resored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent; her eager body quivers. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again carress that beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart, Then you cross rainbow bridge together.....
RUDY - Born a dog......Died a princess, Miss U so much baby lassie, Dad xxxxx

My gorgeous baby Rudy,
I miss you so much,
You were my little princess, who I loved with all my heart.
You were six weeks old when you came into our lives and changed it forever, all our happy memories of all the things you got up to, eating and chewing every remote control for the television, and chewing every heel on every shoe i had, but we could never be cross with those beautiful eyes and innocent little face of yours, you were a little angel and everyone who met you loved you.
You suffered from serious illnesses in the last two years of your short life but you were a little star and you still tried your best to play even though you were tired, and were always happy when we asked you for kisses.
I used to call you Mrs Ruds and I called your best pal Ronnie, Mr Ron cause thats what you both were like, a wee lady and a wee man.
Ronnie is missing you lots and looks for you all day everyday, but dont worry princess, we will all be together again; You wait for us at Rainbow Bridge my baby bumps
Miss You and Love You Always, Mum xxx

From the day you came into our lives,
Until the day you left,
You were loved by everyone who met you,
You are irreplacable,
Everyone misses you loads and cant wait till the day we meet again
Love You Loads Baby Lassie, Love Daniel x

Love you lots fatty, Our time together was cut short, but theres no more pain, run free with your wee pup and tara, We'll meet again.
Always In Our Thoughts, Love Your Big Brother Nicky xx

PEBBLES SPEAK!
Little rebel! Lady muck! Princess! Hairy little rebel!
Sleep well my baby.
XXXXX

Pebbles was a dog with a human mind. One of the sweetest pets I have ever known and one of the most beautiful too. Carol cared for her like she was a daughter and Pebbles could not of had a better life with anyone with the one she had with her. All our lives will be a little emptier now that she has left us. I will miss you Pebbles. Love Sofia Scott xx

Our deepest sympathy. You are missed, but the memory of you running around the farm and enjoying everything life had to offer, will always be with us. We were please to hear you were peaceful. all our love Myles, Claudia, Dominic, Mike and Jake.

When we first met Pebbles she was just a puppy, and a gorgeous one at that. She filled all our hearts with laughter and joy and now she has left us the world seems a little smaller. To think that she is gone brings sorrow to our hearts but we know that carol treasured her and looked after her as though she herself was a human . Reflecting on the life Pebbles had with Carol, which was full of excitement and joy always brings a smile to our faces. We wish Carol all the best and can't think of a better owner Pebbles could of had. Love the Hoods









Pebbles, I only knew you for a short time, but in that time I fell in love with you. You were a very special dog, loving and friendly with both humans and dogs. All your doggy pals miss you. I miss you. No dog could wish for more caring and loving owners and my thoughts are with Carol and Tolga at this heartbreaking time. You were a fighter and fought to the end. Now the fight is over little one. Sleep peacefully Princess Pebbles. Aileen xx

Pebbles was a amazing dog. i loved watching her running with the ball to catch it. i am sorry for carol and tolga. it's very sad for them. i hope she having a happy time in doggy heaven. it was really nice to see her when she was beter coming from edinbrugh to newcastle and playing on the town moor. carol and tolga did every thing they could done but she was to bad. no bodey could look after her better than carol and tolga. she is propley geting the same loveness in doggy hevean. but it just seems difrent now shes gone. i think all her doggy friends are missing her. it really sad for her but she was just to ill to stay. she was a lovley doggy i really miss her coming to get me to play with her. i could never think of a more nicer dog then her. she allways said please and thank you when she was getting a treat when she was on well behaved on the train. it's so sad to lose her. she had all the treatment she could of had but she hat to go. carol has paid a lot of monney to try to keep her alive but she was just to bad.so i hope she's having a lovly time up there and all ways wachers down on us to see how we are. love Myles

Pebbles, our beloved princess! All that love and all that caring couldn't stop your going away. We will always miss you and remember you. The joy you have given to your mummy, daddy and all of us is worth everything. We promise you that we will only smile thinking of the short but precious time we shared with you. Don't worry Pebbles nobody will bother you there by taking your picture anymore, but we bet you are now taking our pictures everyday from the best place in heaven, eh princess? Fairwell Pebbles! Sleep tight! Arzu and Arda

If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
and pain should keep me from my sleep,
then you must do what must be done,
for this last battle can't be won.
You will be sad, I understand,
don't let your grief then stay your hand,
for this day, more than all the rest,
your love and friendship stands the test.
We've had so many happy years,
what is to come can hold no fears.
Would you want me to suffer? no,
so when the time comes, please let me go.
take me where my needs they'll tend,
only stay with me to the end,
and hold me firm and talk to me,
until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time that you will see
it is a kindness that you do to me,
although my tail it's last has waved,
from pain and suffering I have been saved.
do not grieve it should be you
who must decide this thing to do-
don't let your heart hold any tears.
we've been so close, we two these years,
with all my love, Pebbles xx
