Ruth, I am so very sorry about Pepys. He was certainly one of the most inquisitive handsome boys I've ever seen.
Let's hope he's once again with Uncle Oliver, digging for mouses :)
LITTLE DOG ANGEL
HIGH UP IN THE COURTS OF HEAVEN TODAY
A LITTLE DOG AWAITS
WITH THE OTHER ANGELS HE WILL NOT PLAY
BUT SHE SITS ALONE AT THE GATES
FOR I KNOW THAT MY MASTER WILL COME, SAYS HE
AND WHEN SHE COMES, SHE WILL CALL FOR ME
AND HIS MASTER FAR ON EARTH BELOW
AS SHE SITS IN HER EASY CHAIR
FORGETS SOMETIMES, AND SHE WHISTLES LOW
FOR THE DOG THAT IS NOT THERE
AND THE LITTLE DOG ANGEL COCKS HIS EARS
AND DREAMS HIS MASTERâ€™S CALL HE HEARS
AND I KNOW WHEN AT LENGTH HIS MASTER WAITS
OUTSIDE IN THE DARK AND COLD
FOR THE HAND OF DEATH TO OPEN THE GATES
THAT LEAD TO THOSE COURTS OF GOLD
THE LITTLE DOG ANGELâ€™S EAGER BARK
WILL COMFORT HER SOUL IN THE SHIVERING DARK.
Until the day you meet Pepys again at the Bridge XX
PS I am sat here with tears rolling down my face, I feel so sad for you :cry:
We are so sorry for your loss.....you have our hearts and our condolences.
My dear friend.
I know you loved and adored him, he felt the same about you... his Mum and Dad,
He had a wonderful life, a life that only some little dogs can dream about.
May he run over the bridge and feel the wind beneath his wings, may he be there in the crisp, fresh morning dew and then be the brightest twinkle in the winter snow and then also the gentle warmth in the summer evening sun as you bid farewell to another day, treasure the memories they are yours forever.
Love him always, he is never far away.
With all my love,
Thinking of you both,
My heartfelt sympathy for you on the loss of your beloved "mouser". His photo is one of my favorites. It appeared he was one in a million, a funny little clown. He most certainly was the keeper of your heart. Having just lost my girl, Beatrice, I know how very empty your arms feel. There is no better snuggler than a Cav. I hope you can find comfort in all the happy pictures you must have of him and all the sweet memories of his antics. He was a lucky boy to have such a loving mom. Again, I am so very sorry.
Oh Ruth, you are in my thoughts and so is Pepys. I am sorry to hear of his passing and it is clear he was special -- as they all are, but he especially so. His picture with his dirty face was one of my favourites too. Look after yourself and the other doglets; I think they all know when they lose a companion and must miss him too.
I can't begin to thank you all for your kind words after the devastating loss of Pepys.
My bunch are all pretty old, but I thought he had a good few years left. It has come so soon after losing old Oliver and even though we still have five dogs, the void they have left is enormous.
He was a very special little man and I have lots of video of him 'mousin' which was his favourite pastime. What he was really doing, I have no idea, he just loved to dig big muddy holes. I have decided to keep his Avatar, even now it makes me smile. A sweet natured, quiet little chap who just loved to be cuddled.
Many thanks once again,
So happy you will keep his avatar. That is such a priceless picture. It now brings tears to my eyes as I chuckle.
