Yesterday we lost our beloved Frankie. He was a month off his 15th birthday, and he sadly died on our daughter's 11th birthday. We are grateful that Frankie was in good spirits and health nearly until the end, and he did not have to suffer for long. Susanne, David, Johanna (13) and Eleanor (11)

I'm very sorry to hear of Frankie's passing. How awful for your daughter,I hope she can focus on the many happy years you all had with him and to appreciate what a blessing it was to have had such a long lived boy with an excellent quality of life until almost the end.

So very sorry to hear your news, that is so hard that he passed away on your daughter's birthday and just before Christmas too. I hope though that the many happy memories of all the years you have had together will be a comfort to you all.

It is a wonderful tribute to your love and care that Frankie lived to such a fantastic age.

Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow,
May looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.

Thank you for all your kind thoughts and replies. It is really helpful to read them. We are finding the house very quiet at the moment, and are still expecting to hear the padding of paws, to feel the nudging of Frankie's nose for a cuddle...yes, and even hear the slurping up of water and all the other habits of an old boy! You might be interested to hear that Frankie did not have a heart murmur, though he lost most of his hearing and his sight in the last year. He loved his food until the end! Our girls are very sad but coping really well. Thank you again, Susanne xx

Yes, it is such comfort to know that Frankie had a long, healthy and very happy life! We miss him so much! I think we will be rescuing an older cavalier again. We just can't bear to be without one... Susanne
