View Full Version : Duke

16th September 2009, 06:32 PM
I can hardly believe that Im posting this, but one of my Mums mini daschunds, Duke, was given his wings today. He has been ill for the last 3 weeks with a spinal problem and unfortunately there was no more that the vets could do for him so we had to make the dreadful decision to say goodbye today.

Mum is heartbroken, but it was the kindest thing she could have done for the poor little guy. He will be sorely missed by us all, especially his best pal Ben.

Sleep sweetly little Duke xxxxx


This picture was taken only a day or two before he got sick, his last visit at our house. Duke is 4th on the right with Ben beside him.

So very sorry to hear about Duke - he was a gorgeous boy and obviously very much loved.

Please tell your Mother we are all thinking of her. In time she will be able to look back and remember the happy days.

Duke was a really special dog who had the kindest temperment with everyone he met (except cats who he just loved to hate and chase off the garden walls! :)) Its still so hard to believe that he's gone. We really will miss the little fella something terrible :(

Thanks everyone for your lovely messages, Mam is bringing Ben up to us later so that he can have some doggy company and we'll bring them all out for a stroll together. Ill pass all your kind messages on to her then and I know she'll be really greatful.
