    Default Kayleigh

    Sadly Kayleigh took a turn for the worse this morning and we had to make the decision to let her go.

    She was diagnosed with severe symptoms from the Chiari malformation [no syrinxes] at Glasgow Vet School August 2011, and it's been a hard year trying to get her comfortable - she has been on a plethora of different medications thank you to advice and guidance from Glasgow Vet School, and help, advice and support from Clare Rusbridge.

    As you can imagine we are both heartbroken, it doesn't seem the same without our precious girl. I know it was the right decision but it just seems so unfair. We had a rainbow over the field next door as we drove home, so we know she is safe.

    We are just heartbroken - she was Trevor's velcro puppy


    Kayleigh joins at the bridge Rupert, Teddy, Cruz, Fillipa, Isabel, Peaches, Kyla and Great Granny [long term foster] Fufu - lost at varying ages between 3 and 12 1/2.


    We are going to miss her so much, she was such a strong personality [like her Great Granny who ruled the whole household for 2 years in her dotage] - we've both said today "no more Cavaliers" - we can't cope with the heartbreak anymore. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am Cavalier obsessed so this is a very hard decision.


    I brought this wee girl into the world - an A to A mating, statistics show that there will still be a percentage of affected dogs sadly but the odds are greatly reduced - and I was there for her at the end, the last loving thing we can do for our beloved companions.


    This was our precious girl as a puppy



    I will find some adult shots tomorrow

    Oh Nikki my heart is broken for you (and the whole family). The rainbow was a sign for sure she was telling you that.

    Sending love,
    Melissa

    Dear Nicki,

    I am so incredibly sorry to read this sad news. Kayleigh knew how much you loved her and how much you did to keep her comfortable and pain free. She is now happily running in heaven's beautiful gardens.

    Take care of yourself. RIP sweet Kayleigh.

    Love,
    Joyce

    Beyond The Rainbow

    As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
    I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
    I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
    Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

    I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
    Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
    And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
    Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
    My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
    And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

    I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
    That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
    'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
    And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.

    For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
    We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
    So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
    If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.
