Red diesel at Ourfairview 15/13/08- 19/11/21
12 years 11 months 4 days young
4681 days I’ve had you with me , you came with a tin of pedigree kc paperwork , and diarrhoea and was the very best dog , I couldn’t believe my luck you weren’t sold when I saw your photo and knew you were the one We picked you up on a snowy day and missed collecting Harlie and cydnie , an hour late!
We helped you go this morning , took you to the crematorium and have you home already, you wasn’t spending a night away from your home not on my watch
4676 nights at Ourfairview ( we snuck him on holiday and one over night at the vets )
My first boy dog and what a boy what a gentleman
We went showing together, we went to hospitals , nursing homes , schools , parks , the beach days
You never missed a bbq or a birthday and made both mine and Chelsea’s baby shower
You snuck upstairs when I was really very poorly
You were with me for the birth of Frankie and Cesalie
I honestly have no real way to describe you that will even half show how much I loved you
The sun shone from you , and now it’s gone.
I can not imagine life without you there , birthday cake without your slice, bbqs without your steak , Christmas without your plate
I can’t imagine going to bed tonight without you in your bed and me telling you I love you
I will hold onto all the amazing memories, all the love you gave , and that I know you know we all loved you
I hold onto the rare time we had to put you on a lead ( mainly because you were deaf ) and you’d look at us as-if we had gone mad - the king does not wear a lead !
I recently choose a new little boy , I chose one who had the same markings as you , not to replace you but to honour you, if he is a tiny bit as good as you , that would be awesome . Hopefully the markings and bum spit are a good omen
The children measure dog friendly ness on a scale of dangerous to like diesel
If you could have an extra day for everyone who said they wanted you, or a puppy like you, you’d be here a much longer time . You were loved .
I’ll remember every time you sat with me in the toilet when I’m having a bad day.
You had cake as breakfast today , and after the littles went to school we had a 9am bbq . Your favourite
We sobbed , a lot . But we smiled too
Anyone who ever said “ it’s just a dog” never loved a dog because my heart is hurting so so much that I’m not sure if this is grief or I’m about to drop dead and I sure watched the children’s hearts break last night when I told them today was the day , aunt chels too , you were her first dog too
We will all miss you
Rest easy my sunshine
