SUZIE 19/11/2009, A much loved dog, sadly missed by the Blackmore family xx

SAL 14/11/2009, One ear up, one ear down - your signature pose was one we came to cherish. When you first walked into our lives you were bigger than we bargained for. Seven years later it is the size of the hole that you have left behind that is hard to get used to.

Too many memories to list, your joy at the first walk of the day was only matched by your reluctance to go out last thing at night. You always loved running along the beaches on holidays but building the confidence to go wading in the sea took a bit longer. Your initial reluctance to go into the garden was replaced with a favourite spot under the tree that you shared with the local foxes.

We have loved seeing you grow, and have hopefully grown with you.

We'll take you to the beach girl and the wind will let you run in your favourite place once last time. David & Elsbeth Campbell xx

TINA 02/11/2009, A much loved dog, sadly missed xx











HUGO BEAR 14/09/2002 - 01/11/2009, A big guy with an even bigger heart. You touched everyone who met you, with your gentle manners and kind face full of expression and curiosity. I cannot imagine a kinder, more dedicated companion and you will be missed and remembered every single day. I am sure that you are now with your big brother Jake and that Sarah is keeping an eye on you both for me! Don't worry, I will look after your girls Bella and Zara and give them cuddles every day. Always my handsome man - big kisses, mum x x x x x x x

MAX 29/10/2009, Our fun loving boy we will love and miss you forever. Oh how you loved to play ball and greet us with your many cuddly toys, especially 'monkey'. The house is so empty without you. We keep waiting for you to wander in and plonk yourself on the settee. We will miss your different barks for when you wanted a biscuit or to be petted or just to be noticed. Our comfort is knowing that Sophie was waiting for you over Rainbow Bridge and you are together again. Nite Nite big man. Love you always. Mum and Dad. xxx



CHEEKO 28/10/2009, Too dearly loved to ever be forgotten, we had you in our hearts and in our home for 16 happy years.

You were more than just a dog to us you were part of the family and you are sorely missed by all of us. Rest in peace now sweetheart and one day we will be together again, all our love, always, you were very special to us all, Jean, Ian, John, Laura, Andrew, Eleanor & Hugh. You were a true and faithful friend and closed your eyes for the last time in my arms. xxx

IVO 08/10/2009, Thank you Ivo for 16+ brilliant years. I could not have wished for a cleverer, friendlier or more faithful friend. The void you have left behind in our lives is massive. All your friends, 2 and 4 legged, are missing you. I'll still go " Doon the burn", but it'll never seem quite the same, without you trotting along by my side. Have a rest now. You are in our thoughts every day. Brian and your Uncle T. xx

POPPY 08/2009, "Above all do not lose your desire to walk; every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it. By sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one comes to feeling ill. If one just keeps on walking, everything will be alright."

ROBBIE 25/08/2009, In memory of Robbie on the 1st anniversary of his death. "I don't think life will ever be quite the same. It's really all about learning to live with the constant ache inside. I miss him so desperately every day." Never forgotten by his adoring family xx

RANA 29/07/2009, 'I'm watching you from heaven just beyond the morning sky. I've seen you almost fall apart, when you could barely stand. I asked the lord to comfort you and watched him take your hand.'

Thank you my beautiful baby for 18 wonderful years. I didn't want you to go but I know Tyson and Kia wanted you so. So until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge I will miss you for the rest of my life. Night night baby. Love you. From Dad, mum, Ann-Marie, Debbie, Ian, Aiden, Spike & Viv xxxxxxxxxxx

FLYNN 18/07/2009, Flynn sadly missed by Karen, James, Bailey and Buddie, friend of Zak (5/06/08)
You were a proper wee character, loved life and lived it to the full. How many times when going for a nice leisurely walk did you take off after a cat and leave us standing there looking like complete dafties trying to call you back as you disappeared into the distance. Somehow during these escapades your hearing wasn't what it should have been.
I loved the times taking you out in the snow. You had a great time catching snowballs and rolling around in the snow making dog snow-angels. By the time you were finished you had balls of ice stuck to your fur and your eyes would be glazed with pure excitement.
We didn't have a duvet set without holes in it somewhere - your game was to pull the stuffing out of the quilt through the duvet cover. It must have been great fun for you even extending this game to family member's houses when you went to visit. They had to fix locks to their bedroom doors to prevent you from getting in, as barricades didn't work!!!
Or what about the times when visitors were leaving you would be trying to go with them. Holding you back was a waste of time, you would just wriggle free or slip your collar and jump into the back of their car - mission accomplished!! - off you would go and stay overnight with them and either your Dad or myself would have to go and pick you up the next day. You knew exactly what you wanted and how to go about getting it. We could write a book about the things you got up to, but we wouldn't change you for the world!! There was never a dull moment when Flynnbo was around. You were an absolute legend Wee Man. We love and miss you very much.
Rest in Peace - We hope you are with Zak now. Love Mum, Dad, Bailey and Buddie xxxx


JADE 15/07/2009, A much loved dog, sadly missed by the Thomson family xx

SAM 10/07/2009, Night night our 'wee old man' we loved you with all of our hearts. Hope you are happy and your legs are strong again. Love your Mummy, Daddy and the girls xox

TOBY 10/07/2009, 16yrs, Our loving, loyal and faithful family friend, Toby, our wee boy, my wee soul mate. You will always be in our hearts and remain forever in our lives. Until we meet again, goodnight wee pal and god bless. With all our love, Mum and Dad Taylor XX, Gran and Grandad Biggar XX

TINEEL 08/07/2009, Wee Tineel, our wee 'cheeky', Captains companion, Forever missed by Dawn & Dave xx








MAYA 06/07/2009, Beautiful Maya, you were more than my 'dog', YOU made it very clear that it was your choice to belong to everyone, funny you decided who needed you most! I can't believe 13 years have passed and you were the main consistent through all of them. You were very special to so many people; young and old. The children who had been wronged by the adults in their life you would lie down beside gentle; you done more work than us 'professionals' ever could for them and the day you became a Pet Therapy dog, well, how proud we were! (Basically that was a 'job' eating biscuits let's keep that our secret!). You became the next step in someones 'Recovery' hopping into bed with them, waiting paitiently for them to 'get well' (personally I think you wanted MORE walks but we will make you look saintly!) You stared a new breed called the 'Maya It's-All-In-The-Eyes Type Dog' and were the instagator for so many people getting their own companion! You will be sadly missed sweetheart (not just by me) but by everyone and lovingly remembered. You DID change so many peoples lifes for the better (we all know it). In lots of love and light. xxx
