    Default Rudee

    Rudee Lindsay 24/01/1994 – 19/10/2006

    We watched you playing with your brother, in Trim in ’94.
    You rubbed Claire’s leg with your wee head – you needed to do no more.
    Your little furry body fitted, completely in her hand –
    and a love was born that those without could never understand.

    We took you down to Sutton beach, most every chance we got;
    splashing in the summer pools for pinkeens never caught.
    Swimming bravely through the waves retrieving little sticks,
    which ended hidden in the rough up on the golfing links.

    The morning walks along the beach with Joan and other friends;
    with treats for all the local dogs – why did it have to end.
    Your constant vigil at the cooker, as dinner was prepared;
    your focused eyes, your pleading whine – “I’m starving, don’t you care?”

    The vets, the tabs, the aches and pains – the time and money spent;
    it kept you well for us to love and was worth the final cent.
    You gave us 12 fulfilling years and we have no regrets,
    broken-hearted missing you – we never will forget……

    Your tibute is wonderful and it brought tears to my eyes. I can't imagine the pain you are feeling right now, but sooner or later we will all feel it and it really helps to know that there are so many friends to provide support. This forum is a wonderful place and we are all behind you and giving you all our prayers and thoughts of happiness and support.

    You will feel better. I promise.

    Claire - that was beautiful and brought tears to my eyes as I read it. What a wonderful tribute. It's so great to read about a Cavalier who had 12 lovely years and was loved to complete fullness. In time your heart will heal but Rudee will always have her special place there.

    oh claire, love,

    what a beautiful poem. I had tears running down my eyes the whole way through. The love that you show for your little girl is just captivating to me. I really hope I can provide Kosmo with all of the love and care that you show rudee. You are such a wonderful person claire - I am so sorry. I have no words I can say to take your pain away, but please know that I think about you each and every day and I send warm and positive thoughts. If I were closer to you, God knows I would be banging on your door every chance I got to give you big hugs. Take some time for yourself - when you need a hand or a shoulder to cry on, you know where to find us all.

    Claire, that was a beautiful poem.

    One comforting thought in times like this is to know that you have a little doggie angel that will always watch over you and be on your side

    Take care
