lost another beloved friend today
my beautiful Brutus
been looking after him since he was a pup

my cousin sent me a message saying he is going to heaven today

his seizures were still happening (although they never happened with me – glad i never had to see that) and he was losing control of his legs.

she said they made the decision to let him go now, instead of waiting until he was a drooling idiot.
he was far too noble for that.
too regal
too loved


My wee and feisty friend, Gonzo.

Little black and white Jack Russell cross with something.

You gave Cath a good long run. With her through thick and thin. You were her first child. And her most beloved.

And you were my first “dog sitting” attempt.

Luckily, you liked me, because I took you for 2 walks a day and paid as much attention to you as your mum did.

So you treated me well, and when Cath got some new family members, you put them in their place and taught them how to love me too.

I cannot even begin to explain how sad I am.

This is a deep, aching void that you create.

Not just in me, but most especially for Cath.

And it had to be her decision. Which could not have been easy.

RIP my charismatic little friend.

You will also be sorely missed.

Gonzo Deare – Saturday 11th September 2010.

Gonzo the Magnificent.

Goodbye my darling Molly.
My strange and beautiful dog.
8 January 2010.
Probably 16 years old.
And we still don't know all the breeds you had in you.
My wiry, happy, loyal, intelligent, crazy dog. Your "mad dogging" and "crazy legs" will always make me laugh.

And goodbye to my sleek, sweet, talkative Kayla.
My loud and opinionated, neurotic and suave, Siamese cross.
My little grey girl.
Softest fur in the world.
Big green eyes.
Nearly 15, so you had a good long run, my darling. But we wanted more time.
1 February 2010


I miss you both, so much.
I still cry.
I still see you out the corner of my eye.
Keep expecting to hear you howl with happy, when I come home, my Molly girl.
And Kayla – your spot outside in the sunshine, on the stair, is very bare without you.
