    Default Rupert

    This is the hardest post I've ever had to write -

    Our precious, gorgeous, wonderful Rupert was given his wings last night


    Everyone who met him fell in love with him - he could be so naughty sometimes but that was all part of his charm

    He has touched so many lives - it's all his fault that we fell in love with the breed . He was our first Cavalier, and the only one we have had live with us from a tiny puppy.



    His passing was very peaceful - he was ready to go - and although we would never have been ready to say goodbye, we know we did the right thing.


    After the others had had the chance to say goodbye, we put him up on the chair in the sitting room. We didn't want to leave him on his own - or to sleep in the bedroom without him, so we pulled the sofa bed out and slept in here with him too

    I just can't stop crying , it's not fair especially so soon after losing Kyla {the end of August} but I like to think that they are together again.

    Rupert was 12 1/2 on Thursday - we are so lucky to have shared that many happy years together.


    Please indulge me a few photos:

    from our wee precious naughty puppy






    He always had a sense of humour



    Loved the snow


    but wasn't impressed with the ice balls


    Hated bath time


    Could be well behaved on occasion


    With his Mum when we went to visit - he was about 2




    We made some Christmas cards this year featuring this photo of Rupert

    Ah Nicki, how sad I am to read of Ruperts passing. He was a bonnie lad and that Christmas card pic is just beautiful. It is never easy no matter how much time we have to prepare. I lost, as you , know my Kiki and Doogle within one day of each other and it broke my heart.

    Rupert had a wonderful life with wonderful people in a super home. My heart goes out to you pet.
    Take care and hugs for you all. Rupert sweetie... play happy at the Bridge with all our babes. Bless you.

    Rupert in his picture on the sand and the Christmas card appears to have that wonderful wisdom of the old but with a secret humor reserved for humans. The Card shows such an awesome Cavalier-so hard to part with his soul. He clearly imprinted your hearts and he has not left them. Would that words could ease your burden but know you gave him a beautiful life and a gentle passing.
