CLOUSEAU 27/12/2010, You enriched our lives with your presence and left us with wonderful memories of precious times we shall treasure for ever.

MOLLY passed 20/12/2010
Our dearly beloved Molly. We did not want you to go.
You were our rock when we were down.
Our blanket when we were cold,
You gave everything and expected nothing,
How are we going to cope without you.
You were 3 years old when you came to us and gave us 11 years
of Joy with the unconditional love you gave.
You have left a deep void in our hearts that can nor will ever be filled.
The hardest thing we have ever had to do was letting you go
But we will all be together again, That I believe.
So its Bye for now

KATIE 16/12/2010, Katie came to our home, with her sister Simone, eight years ago from Bothwell Animal Welfare Centre. Both girls enjoyed their new home, with one becoming an upstairs cat and the other a downstairs cat!
Katie enjoyed roaming the back garden and sitting under the bushes watching for mice and birds, only ever catching one bird to our knowledge! In December 2010 she became a sick wee girl very unexpectedly. Katie was an affectionate and loving little pussy cat right to the end.
We'll miss you terribly Katie, lots of love Alan & Gary

RILLA 09/12/2010, Love you always, Rilla-my-Rilla. Not for anything would I have missed our 13 years together. Run free, little sweetheart, until I come for you. Linda xx




JODIE 09/12/2010,
A small part of you came back today
It's only hours since you went away
We'd known you were leaving, known for some time
From the depths of ours hearts we'd prayed you'd be fine.

A small part of you came back today
Which is strange, as I see you in every doorway
You watched me today as I chopped up some cheese
You reminded me gently "I want some please"

A small part of you came back today
You were far past the age of wanting to play
You were happy to snooze, then have a short walk
Or a cuddle, a titbit or maybe just talk

A small part of you came back today
We simply can't bear that you've gone away
The pain of your leaving is too much to bear
It isn't enough - just a lock of your hair.

A small part of you is all that remains
In the end you left quickly, we ended your pain
We will love you for ever, our fabulous girl
Our beautiful Jodie, now gone from our world.

Ringo - 3rd December 2010

my beautiful black and white boy, who was everything to me. I will always love you. xxx

RALPH 22/11/2010, A much loved dog, sadly missed by the Winters family xx

NICO 21/11/2010, A much loved dog, sadly missed by the Farrell family xx






SALLY 20/11/10
A "Babe" who set the rules,
She brought us laughter & joy,
Happiest at the beach or park
or with her cuddly toys.

We always knew she was clever,
And never missed a beat,
Every night like clockwork,
She'd be looking for her treat.

Our Sally was a blessing, the
apple of our eye,
After thirteen loving happy years,
It's hard to say goodbye.

We remember with affection,
A loyal and special friend,
Who fought a long brave battle,
And was strong until the end.

Although it's hard to be apart,
you are with us always in our hearts.

Devoted, loving and true, no one could wish for anything
more than a faithful friend like you,
much loved and sadly missed Mum, Dad and all the Family xxxxxx

You were such a special little dog. Give Tarka a big kiss from me, I know he'll be waiting for you. Rest in peace Poppy-dog, you'll never be forgotten xxx

If I should go tomorrow
It would never be goodbye,
For I have left my heart with you,
So don't you ever cry.
The love that's deep within me,
Shall reach you from the stars,
You'll feel it from the heavens,
And it will heal the scars.

MELLOW 26/03/1997 - 05/06/2010, You were with me to the very end and even as my soul left my body, I looked down and saw you crying
I wanted so much to tell you that I understood, that you did this for me
I tried to tell you in my own way it was time for me to leave and I thank you for understanding
No Other will take my place
Think of me with happiness, of how I made you laugh at the funny and the smart things I did
When it comes time for my family to leave, I shall meet them at the gates of Valhalla,
and I shall acquaint them with this beautiful place and I shall take care of them for you
Thank you for loving me, caring for me and having the courage to let me go with dignity.

MYLO 30/05/2010, A much loved dog, sadly missed by the McMillan family xx

ROCCO 27/05/2010, Rocco, our big handsome boy who loved his bones and sunbathing. We will miss you lying in the garden, sitting staring through the fence in the hope of getting a bone and some attention from the neighbours.
We will always remember your happy face as you bounded towards us or chased rabbits and squirrels through the woods. Our home is a lot quieter without you. You may have left us while you were still young but you gave us so many happy memories and good times that we will always smile when we think about you. Love, Mum, Dad and Murphy.x

ZARA 12/12/1993 - 10/05/2010, Thank you old girl, you will be sorely missed.

Rhona, Cara and Zara (my girls)
Time goes by without them.
Days turn into years,
They hold a million memories,
and a million silent tears.

Best Friends Rainbow Bridge
There is a place of rainbow dreams, of
Plush green grass, and silver streams..
It brings me comfort to know you're there,
Peacefully romping without a care..
Always happy, the freedom to roam, peaceful,
joyful, in your new home..
You never criticize, you never judge, you were
always there for me to Love.
Though you live on in my heart, I know..
It's just so hard to let you go!
I know someday we'll meet again, you'll
run to greet me, my best friend.
Together forever we'll finally be, over
the rainbow, just you and me..

RAMAS 05/05/2010, The last 11 years have been the best. We got you as a stray when you were 2 years old. To say dogs are mans best friend is no understatement Where you were concerned, you were the best and so sadly missed not only by your immediate family but all family and friends. The long walks on Nairn beach are so missed. Through rain, sleet, snow and sunshine (sometimes!) we walked and talked. It was time for you to move on, go and run free Ram X

BILLY 03/05/2010, A much loved cat, sadly missed by the Barns family xx

NULA 31/03/2010, A much loved dog, sadly missed by Eddie & Rachel xx

KAI DOUGLAS SINCLAIR 16/03/2001 - 29/03/2010, When we told our families we were getting a Rottweiler, we were practically disowned. 'Why do you want to get a dog like that' was the common response.
That was until the day we brought Kai home and everyone fell hopelessly in love with the cutest little pup ever.
Funnily enough, now, when we hear in the media about 'devil dogs', the common response is, 'it's the owners fault, not the dogs'.

In the 9 years we had Kai, she had many illnesses and ailments and was constantly at the vet. We didn't ever contemplate life without her, and when we received the devastating news that she had a tumour and it was terminal, we were distraught.

No amount of thought or consideration can prepare you for the sadness, the guilt or the grief you feel when you need to make the decision to end their suffering.

Kai was the best thing to ever happen to us. She gave us all so much love and affection. She was a mummy's girl and everyone's best friend. The emptiness of our house is so apparent, it just won't be the same "home" without her.

Kai, we think about you constantly and we'll miss you every day. Our girl, we'll love you forever!!
Nite Nite puppy!
God bless.
Mummy, Daddy and all the family. xxx

CARA 14/06/1995 - 18/02/2010, The love I had for you in Life darling girl, death cannot take away xx

Also remembered RHONA 08/02/1994 - 06/06/2006, To know Rhona, was to love Rhona. My precious girl loved and remembered everyday xx

Cara and Rhona are together again.
Where did Rhona and Cara go,
The ones that could melt my heart,
I would have hidden you away,
If I'd know we'd have to part,
It's lonely here without you,
It's a shadow life i lead,
And tucked in every moment,
Is a sad and painful need.
Waiting for me at Rainbow Bridge.

Remembering also with love and pride, Sally 1969 - 1982 and Dirk 1982 - 1997.
