Rest In Peace Spirit - August 1998 to 22nd December 2013

It doesn't seem 2 minutes since I published my dedication to our other dog, Star, yet we've been fortunate to have Spirit with us an extra 5 and a half years.

Sadly the week leading up to this Christmas has been the toughest of the year. Spirit had always remained lively and active for her age, getting two decent walks a day, eating the best food we could provide for her. Old age has slowly been taking its toll on her though and last Sunday we had to say goodbye to her for the last time. She was cradled by my wife and I until the end and we know it was the right decision to make but it doesn't make our pain any easier.

She had the best life ever, went on some amazing walks and brilliant holidays. She gave us endless love and made us laugh so many times.

I hope she is running around with Star somewhere nice...

She will never be forgotten...

You have to have owned a dog to understand what you are both going through. Hope your heartache eases in time

A truer more faithful friend cannot be had other than your dog..... we know this as only dog owners can as we have had many over the years. Each one has provided us with that special friendship. May time heal your heartache.
