oh my goodness Cathy, I am so sorry :( I'm so glad Charlie got to come and stay with you for a few months ~ they surely were his best few of his entire life. You and Colin have been an inspiration to me with your kind and gracious hearts. Please know that you guys are in my thoughts and prayers at this terrible time *hugZ* from all of us! :flwr:
Run free at the bridge little sweetheart :lotsaluv: *ng*l*ng*l*ng*l :lotsaluv:
Oh, this is hard to read. Thank you for the courage to let Charlie be at peace. You are so wise and you both took such loving care of this little soul and gave him the best. His paw prints will always be on your hearts. :paw: God bless you.

From Friend to Friend
I found this and it reminded me of Cathy and Colins strength
"From Friend to Friend" by Karen Clouston
You're giving me a special gift, so sorrowfully endowed,
And through these last few cherished days, your courage makes me proud.
But really, love is knowing when your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts will only be in vain.
So looking deep into your eyes, beyond into your soul,
I see in you the magic that will once more make me whole.
The strength that you possess is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done, for it's the only way.
That strength is why I've followed you and chose you as my friend,
And why I've loved you all these years ... my partner till the end.
Please understand just what this gift you're giving means to me,
It gives me back the strength I've lost and all my dignity.
You take a stand on my behalf, for that is what friends do,
And know that what you do is right. For I believe it too.
So one last time I breathe your scent and through your hand I feel,
The courage that's within you to now grant me this appeal.
Cut the leash that holds me here, dear friend and let me run,
Once more a strong and steady pet, my pain and struggle done.
And don't despair my passing, for I won't be far away,
Forever here within your heart and memory I'll stay.
I'll be watching over you, your ever faithful friend,
And in your memories I'll run, a young pet once again.
Bless you Cathy and Colin for all the love you gave to Charlie! I am sorry things did not turn out differently.
I am very sorry for your loss.
I'm so sorry for your loss,it makes me so angry that people have bred these beautiful creatures without any regard for their health and well being ! He was lucky to have you at least :(
Cathy, what a wonderful person you are for taking on the emotional and financial burden to take such care of gentle little soul Charlie. He was so lucky to have you in his life before running free at the bridge. My heart breaks for you and your family at this difficult time.*ng*l Know that you did everything you could and be at peace. Hugs from us and Miss Bianca.:flwr:
