View Full Version : Wallis - 9/1994-2/2008

11th March 2008, 02:16 AM
I wanted to share with you that my wonderful Wallis is no longer with us. We decided just over a week ago (2/29) to set her spirit free from her painful body.

Those of you who remember Wallis may also remember that she had a grocery list of problems that included CHF, interstitial pulmonary problems, cancerous tumor. But what got her in the end was arthritis and joint problems. She reached the point where she could not get up without help. We had started her on Zubrin a few weeks ago, knowing that we were looking at quality of life and not quantity. It helped miraculously the first week or so but then it didn't seem to be doing anything.

I have a picture I wanted to post - but right now my brain is foggy and I can't get it to work.

Oh Donna, Sweetheart.. I am so sorry about Wallis. :( I know how much you loved her and how special she was to you. You are the perfect model of a doggy parent and I hope you know that.

I know you have a froggy brain sometimes, so I have taken the liberty to post Queen Wallis' picture for you :) I really love this picture of her, as I know you do too.


I found this beautiful poem I thought you might enjoy


I sit and try to write the words, I want your heart to hear.
Hoping to find some comfort, in the fact that your not here.
I look out into the open field, that you once occupied,
Knowing now that field is empty, because my love, you've died
I do believe with all my heart, that your soul has gone to be,
With all the other angel dogs, that you were meant to see.
We will have to stay behind, until God calls us too,
So do not be afraid, that he's only called for you.
The water is still, in the pond that you played,
And your bed is so empty, where your pretty head laid.
Our bed is to empty, where you once laid between,
the two people who LOVED you and now only dream,
That one day our eyes will shut one last time,
and you will come greet us, angel of mine.
Until then, I'll keep trying to see through my tears,
with memories you left us, to reflect through the years.
We'll never forget one minute we spent,
of loving and laughing, of places we went.
And I dread the day that your scent disappears,
for it's "proof" to me, Wallis, that you were just here!
But one day will come, when we'll start to see through,
the pain of the moment, and remember just "you".
Now you go and play, and look down when you can,
remembering we love you, and this isn't the end.

-Holly W. Gray, Shockie's mommy

***HUGZ*** to you Donna and I hope you're feeling a little better today as I know how hard this has been on you. Rest in Peace Dear Wallis *ng*l*ng*l:lotsaluv:

Sara...you have me in tears with that poem. It's beautiful. Donna, that is a wonderful picture of Wallis. You know how sorry I am. Wallis was one of a kind!

I'm so sorry for your loss of little Wallis. It's difficult to say goodbye to our beloved cavs, but you did the most loving thing by setting her free. :flwr:

12th March 2008, 03:10 AM
Sorry for your lost :hug: Wallis, run free, be happy, and remind those of your love for them.

Donna--I hope you're feeling a bit better as the days pass. I know you'll always miss sweet Wallis, but she'll always be with you and I truly believe you'll see her again one day--just like Sara's poem (which had me in tears) said...

Hugs to you and your family~:flwr:

14th March 2008, 11:26 PM
Oh, I missed this while I was away and am just seeing it now. :( I am so sorry -- she was certainly one of a kind and handled her problems with grace (as did you :flwr:). I know the world won't seem quite the same without her there but as time gradually eases the immediate pain, her lovely memory will always be a joy and comfort for you to cherish.

15th March 2008, 03:41 AM
I followed Wallis's story keenly. I am so sorry for your loss.

15th March 2008, 03:57 AM
Do you begin to realize how much your kind words mean? It's been two weeks today - seems like forever, yet I still look for her in the hallway at night so I don't step on her.

The people here introduced me to a world of others who love Cavaliers. We're special people who get to share our lives with them. And we share with each other the good times and the bad.

Thank you all very much.

I've only just seen this thread. I'm so sorry for your loss. She was one VERY well loved girl. :hug:

:hug:Donna, I haven't been on here much lately and I'm just so sad to learn of your precious girls passing :cry*ing:I loved Wallis and I was so happy for you when she reached her 13th Birthday. She was such a special little lady :lotsaluv:
This is my favourite pic of Wallis:

Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers Donna. I'm so sorry for your loss.

15th March 2008, 04:56 PM
Claire, that's one of my favorites too. And Roxie has really changed since Wallis has been gone. She's more in touch with her "puppy" side now. We knew she watched out for Wallis but didn't realize just how much. Thank you for posting that picture.

19th March 2008, 01:40 AM
oh donna i haven't been on in ages and i just saw your post. you were such an amazing and devoted mom to wallis and she was so lucky to have you. i'll be thinking of you and your family during this time-you've been through so much with wallis and it must be so hard not to have her there with you. the wonderful pictures show how many lives she touched.

run free and chase lizards around the bridge sweet girl

I'm so sorry to hear about sweet little Wallis. I know you both went through a lot together but she had a great life and brought joy to so many people.

Take care and remember all the good times :luv:
