How I miss this
dog . . .
My favourite pup in
the litter and when he was returned to us after 9 days in a new home
we just couldn't disagree with cosmic intervention and acknowledged
that he needed to be with us. He went on to become our first homebred
Elmo passed away on
11 August 2014, when the lump he was supposed to have removed turned
out to be cancerous which had already spread through his entire body.
He was only 8 and
such a youngster at heart still, his loss hit me and my other dogs
hard and I still miss him so much.
He will always hold
a special place in my heart and will never be forgotten.
This is what I
wrote the day we lost him:
Elmo - Ch. Braemoor's
9 May 2006 - 11 August 2014
We have had to say goodbye to our special boy Elmo today. I can't
believe he is gone. He was such a kind and gentle soul, my big baby.
I will miss everything about him, his growly talk, we could have
lengthy conversations and he'd always have the last word. The way
he'd stretch his his neck after he'd had a nap so I could stroke his
chin, making him stretch even further. The way he'd cock his head to
one side followed by a happy twist
and growly talk after I'd only said the first word of the sentence
asking him whether he wanted to go out. I even miss his smelly beard
and muddy feet and the piles of sand he'd inevitably leave in my
bed. But most of all I will miss his head in my lap, dark eyes
gazing up at me always making me say 'me loves you Melmo' I said it
to him again and again today as he closed his eyes for the last
time. I miss you my handsome man and me loves you - always
