    Default very sad day today!

    just wanted to let everyone know that Charlie was very sadly put to sleep this morning, he went into heart failure over the weekend! due to his age and his MVD there was nothing more we could do for him so sadly he was put to rest this morning!

    we had him for just over 3 years and he reached a grand old age of 15 1/2 years!

    we will post a memorial up later with some of his pictures!

    I'm so sorry but I'm so happy you had three wonderful years together. They get so precious as they get older. Rest in peace Charlie, you had a great long life full of love at the end.

    So sorry to read about Charlie's passing. I can remember when you got him, he looked a lovely old lad. I bet these last three years with you have been wonderful and he knew he was loved and warm and had a full tummy.
    It is, sadly, the price we pay for rescuing the oldies, they may not be with us for long but at least they have love and comfort in their last years.
    Run free Charlie.

    So sorry to hear about Charlie I know he was very special to you. I remember when you took him into your home and what a wonderful home it was for him to see out his days. He always looked younger than his years and brought you many happy times. What an amazing age he reached.

    Thankyou all so much for your kind words and thoughts, it really means so much to us all,

    We really have been blessed to have had Charlie in our lives, a wonderful dog, with the best of natures, always that goofy doggy grin, and waggy tail to greet anyone, he leaves behind a huge hole in our family x

    Dear Ryan, Lisa and Kieran, I'm so very sad to read this news. I was really pleased when Charlie went to live with you, it was meant to be after the first family didn't even bother to show up.

    You have had 3 wonderful years together, shared so much love and companionship, and will have many happy memories. It has always been a pleasure reading your updates and seeing your photos - and it was such a thrill to see Charlie in the Dogs Today Oldies section recently.

    He will indeed leave a gaping hole in your lives, he obviously had such a special character and was a happy boy despite his problems. He was amazing to go on for three years, but I think that is also a reflection of your devoted, loving care.

    Thinking of you all at this very sad time.
