Tania was my first CKCS. I had her when I was 12 years old. She was so very beautiful and got me through the terrible teens. When I met my wife at 21, I moved down from London to Swansea and lost touch of Tania....Then the phone call came..Tania's bladder was failing and she was getting bigger and bigger. My dad called and my wife and I drove up to the vets. My dad stayed in the van, but myself, Bev (wife) and lynda (mum) went into the vets. I will never forget the look on her face when the needle went in, and the blue stain on her fur of her paw. We left the vets without her and my dad cried. It was the first and last time I ever saw my dad cry. 18 years to the day today, and I am thinking of her.

Thank you Merello. You are so right. That's why when I write poetry about Cavs and their owners, I know something of the hurt and pain felt. I have a new Cav now in Tess, but I still miss Tania.

Robbie, I lost my little Cav Sonny last year to MVD and there's not a day goes by that I don't think of him and miss him so much. We got another little Cav from a rescue and Kaley is every bit as loving as Sonny was. I think in 20 years time I'll be similar to you and still be missing Sonny. There's just something about the loving and loyal nature of the breed that makes them so special:-)

Thinking of you today. These little guys truly are angels in doggie bodies. She is with you always.

My father passed away 3 weeks later. I am convinced he died of a broken heart.

With Jade's death still so recent, I know that we never quite get over the loss of these special dogs. Whether it's 6 weeks or 6 years, the gap in our lives will always be there. I'm thinking of you as you remember Tania. xxx

How very sad. It's so hard when you lose your dog but to lose your dad so soon after would be so hard for you. I'm sure my husband must think I've lost the plot as every time I'm on here I end up in tears.

Thank you. To my dad, Tania was everything..as she was to me...Tania was real live teddy who you could cuddle when life got tough, and my dad used her for the same purpose. I can hardly see what I am typing through the tears. 3 weeks from now, I will be the same again..in bits.

Tess was feeling down all day yesterday, but today she is fine..It's almost as if she knew I was sad and was mourning with me....but that's silly isn't it?

I'm so sorry for your loss of tania but also so grateful for the poem you wrote for ella. I can't tell you how much that meant to me and I will always treasure it. Your story is so sad/sweet/touching full of emotions. Thank you for sharing that with us. *tears*. Tania must have been one special girl. I know I will never forget ella and you for doing that for me. Now I'm crying but good cries. I really am sorry.

Ok, now I have a wet pillow. Not silly at all. I can imagine tess looking up at you and praying beside you as think of tania. I heard cavaliers or even dogs in general can sense emotions so I think you might be right.

I have a lot of empathy for you, I feel the same for my Ciara who died in 1998 and will like you miss and never forget her.
