What can i say, this Boy , this bundle of mischief came into my life
12 years ago and i never knew then the impact he would have on my
From the beginning at 5 weeks old i knew he was special, he loved the life he had been given and that part of his character remained throughout the whole of his lifetime.
He was my protector and he stepped up to that mark as though it was his duty to do so and that his life depended on it.
He was my soulmate when i felt down and needed to have a cuddle my Boy was there by my side looking and understanding with those beautiful chocolate button eyes.
He was a carer and when we had 3 puppies to look after , he done just that, always sniffing and licking them making sure they were ok.One of those puppies he bonded with and that was Jack.
He took on the role of being "Dad" to Jack , playing rough and tumble,with him, washing his face and ears everyday whether Jack wanted it or not, growing and bonding as the months and years passed, they were inseparable.
Last summer dealt a bitter blow and my world with my Boy would never be the same.
He fought as he did throughout his life to remain as he always had, that scatterbrain who would run a mile without stopping , just because he could. The boundless ball of energy who never knew how to just walk, everything was done at a speed of 100 miles an hour, a headless chicken came to mind many times. But cancer is cruel and sadly the time came when my Boy simply got tired, the fate that was inevitable had now come , so many times in my mind i had gone over this scenario knowing it was me and only me that would have to play God.
Sadly My Boy, my protector, my carer , my Soulmate, my Darling Charlie Brown passed over the Rainbow bridge on Thursday and my life will never be the same again...
If Charlie Brown could tell me i know these are the words he would say...
When i am gone release me, let me go,
I have so many things to see and do.
You musn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you love and you can only guess
How much you gave me of happiness
I thank you for the love you have shown,
But now it's time i travelled on alone.
So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
It's only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on,
Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near,
And if you listen with your heart you'll hear,
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then when you must come this way alone,
I'll be there to greet you with a smile and a
