I can't believe that a year has passed since I last held my Rudepoohs little head in my hand as she gently and peacefully went to sleep. I have been taken back in time this week to those last few days when I tried so hard to make her well yet again so that we could have some more time with her but it was not to be. I had to let her go with the diginity and grace that she deserved. I miss her every day but I am so very grateful for all the years that she graced our home - she was my soulmate and best babykins. She had a special relationship with every member of our family and we often reminice about the times that she pulled the wool over our eyes and came out the winner. She was a very special girl and she will always be remembered with love and affection.

Your video is a lovely tribute to Rudee. I saw that you had just posted it recently. Did you just make it? If so it must have given you a great deal of bittersweet happiness to see Rudee at all the stages of life on this anniversary of her leaving.

Thank you for posting this.

I am sitting here crying. What a lovely tribute to a lovely dog. They leave us much too soon and take a part of us with them when they go.

What a beautiful tribute to Rudee! I smiled through the whole thing....and then came the tears. Rudee was so lucky to have been so loved...and you were so lucky to have shared her life with her. I know she's smiling on you with fondness as she watches your with Cara Mia and Minnie Moo! She's thinking....so glad my mommy is happy again!!!

Thinking of you today Claire - Rudee was very special and I think we all grew to love her from your stories and photos.

Claire, that slide show is wonderful. I especially love that picture of Rudee carrying the stick out of the water - she looks like she was a true spaniel and of course a wonderful friend to you.

What a wonderful tribute to Rudee - its brought tears to my eyes - she was a beautiful girl, also brought back memories of my first baby " Lady" who has been waiting at the bridge for the last 6 years.

I agree it is a beautiful fitting tribute and it brought tears to my eyes. I don't have the strength to face this in the future.

Claire: You used to have a Little Dog's Prayer below your signature when Rudee was still with you. I remember I really liked it but I cannot remember exactly how it goes. Would you share it with us? Thanks.

I remember that too Phyllis, it was lovely

I did find a website with lots of doggie poems, but haven't found that particular one yet...

Lovely, sweet tribute to Rudee, and it brought tears to my eyes. I didn't realize she liked carrying sticks and playing in the water when she was younger! :)

A Little Dogs Prayer

A master who is firm and kind,
and understands a doggie mind;
A Walkie and a meal each day;
that's all I ask for
when I pray.

Arugh you made me cry! That was beautiful tribute to a special girl. I know they say time heals the heart but I know my heart still aches for Jake as I know yours aches for Rudee, but I think that just goes to show how incredible she was... its a tribute to her character.

Rudee i'm sure your in heaven with Jakey having a ball, i'm sure those two would have got along like a house on fire :)
Claire your a champion, you helped me so much with my grief mainly because I could relate to yours. Your a true doggie angel and I know Rudee would be so proud of you for saving Minnie and Cara.

Take care,
lots of Love Lara and Marley

Thanks, Claire! I have a file folder where I save poems and sayings I like about dogs and I am copying this one and adding it to the file. I will always think of you and Rudee, and of Minnie and Cara for whom Rudee paved the way, when I read it.

Just sitting here crying again..... Claire what a special dog Rudee was, owned by very special people - may I hope your heart remembers the happy times and that you know she is watching over you and your family.
