Kevin went to the Bridge this morning, after a short illness. :(

Kevin was about 11 1/2 years old and we took him into our lives 2 years ago, when he was bereaved of his elderly owner. Before this, we understand he was a show dog, but never found out who his breeder was or what his pedigree name was.

Kevin did so much with me and followed me everywhere, always. I'll miss lots of special times with Kev - he used to love going to Scotland with us and I have fond memories of him staying in a hotel in the Cairngorms with OH and I a couple of times; of Kevin sitting quietly under the table in The Dog & Gun in Keswick; of Kevin coming to Newcastle Uni with me in the car each week to drop my typing work off; of him sleeping in my wardrobe for the last couple of months; of our special "sausage Fridays" that we shared, where he'd come to work with me and have a sausage sarnie or a sausage roll.

Run free, mummy's boy.

So soon after losing precious Cailean, it really does not seem fair Fran :(

Thinking of you at this horrid, sad time - take comfort that Kevin chose to spend his last years with you, and he was so happy and very much loved.

Think of him pulling that face and sulking with you after you "tidied" up his bed in the wardrobe :)

Sending our love and thinking of you xxx

Fran,I'm so sorry to read such sad news. I remember Kevin was originally with his brother but they didn't really get along. I fell in love with Kev when I saw his photo and enquired about adopting him. I was delighted when you announced that he was going to live with you.

It's so sad that he had such a short time with you.

Take care of yourself Fran and know that we are all thinking of you :hug:

Kevin's companion Randall (now Ben) is doing really well and is a cheeky little thing. Kevin and Ben did meet up for a couple of walkies and completely blanked each other :).

The family that adopted Ben also now own two companions of Cazy's. Cazy and her 2 friends came from a breeder when they 'retired'. Incidentally Cazy completely ignores her old kennel-mates when she meets them too!

Misty, I'm so terribly sorry about both your losses. I haven't been on much in the past while, and was shocked to see you've lost both Cailean and Kevin in the past few weeks. My thoughts are with you :flwr:

I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember Kevin's Gotcha Day; he was a lucky boy to be part of your family. :flwr: It seems so unfair that he followed Cailean so soon.
