Just No Escape

Webster here......

well she was looking for volunteers today for the "dreaded table" and I decided I was quite happy to paw forward.

The others looked on in amasement.

Thing is ..... what they didn't recogise is I got to spend a few hours relaxing and being pampered with lots of TLC. Also there were some very, very nice treats in the cupboard where I was!

I laid on my left, I laid on my right and I slept whilst she pulled out my old long coat. Which as you can see by the colour difference was quite long.

It appears I slept so well she left me on the table whilst she went to eat lunch!
I'm not finished yet but tomorrow (and I suspect for the next few days), pampering and treats are looking good.

How to say Thankyou

Where and how do we begin to say thank you to everyone for your lovely messages and kind words of support on the loss of our precious girl Dorcus. So simply from the bottom of our hearts ..thank you.

There is no way we can express the pain we are feeling right now. We miss her so dreadfully and the question we keep asking is " why, why, why"? Dorcus was too young, it should not have been her time to leave us. We loved her more than we can say.

We wanted to share some of our favourite precious Dorcus moments
Her first bath in the kitchen sink aged 12 weeks
Her first snow 29.12.06
Her first walk with Ellie in the snow Dec 2006

Growing up. Aged 10 months

Think we'll have to leave it here for now...........

Thank you so much everyone for caring and being there for us.

Our hearts are broken as we write. .. Dorcus was very, very sick and we had to let her go.
X-rays revealed she had a tumour in her stomach which had ruptured, tumours had spread to her lungs. There was nothing that could be done other than to help our beautiful girl to be pain free. We held her paws as she peacefully slipped away.

We brought her home and she will be with Ellie.
Dorcus, thank you for 5 wonderful years. We loved you to bits beautiful girl and we are so proud and privileged to have shared our life with you. But we feel so cheated, 5 years was not long enough.

Run free with the wind in your face. We will always love you Dorcus.

Dorcus 21.6.05 - 10.12.10

Thank you everyone for your lovely messages
