Went to Doggy heaven this evening.
He has been my shadow since he arrived in our house as a puppy 14 months ago. We did everything together and he came everywhere with me.
He was like a 4th child.
We are all devastated.
The only consellation I can give the kids at this difficult time is that he had such a happy 14 months with us.
We have started a memory box for him. I am going to out to see my fabulous vet tomorrow and will see about having him cremated. We have already decided where we will scatter his ashes - down the end of our garden where he ran first every time he was out to see if there were birds in the big tree so he could bark at them.
Kids also want to plant a tree.
I gave up work 10 months ago and Brady and I have had so much fun and I don't know what I am going to do without him. He was my minder and was the best guard dog. He was my buddy and so many laughs together.
He had his annual check up last week and he was in perfect health. Vet commented on his health, diet, athleticism (he wasn't a docile Cav - he was like a terrier trapped in a Cav's body - but he was genuine Cav).
He died as a result of an accident.
He should be here sitting behind me with his head on my shoulder or my head but he is gone.
He really was so, so beautiful and fabulous markings. Will post a pic.
Keep us in your thoughts.
