Gone But Not Forgotten



We will always be grateful for being able to give Coco a loving home for the last two years of his life. He was 9 when we got him and would have been 11 on 13th February this year. Most people wouldn’t believe his age and said what a handsome dog he was. 

He had an amazing character and a truly loyal disposition.

He had a long term lung complaint and it was only in his last few days that he went dramatically downhill. In the end he died a peaceful death at home with us.

He will be greatly missed.





I wanted to let you all know that Alfie passed away yesterday.
He was surrounded by the whole family and couldn't have been more loved by us all. He'd been unwell since last Christmas and alongside this was completely deaf and had dementia. Despite all of this he was a real trooper and never gave up, still managing to enjoy his walks.

He will be really missed by all of us and the wider community.

Thank you for letting us share our family and life with Alfie.

Kind Regards

Karen and Wayne



It is with a sad heart we have had to say goodbye to our beloved Lucy this afternoon.
She has filled our lives with so much joy.
RIP Lucy run to the end of the rainbow and find Tilly, we will miss you.

Love Alan and Kayxxx




Really sad news- we lost Maisy tonight. She's been declining for a few weeks and the weeks between her trips to the vet were getting shorter. Needless to say, we are absolutely devastated - we knew the end was near, but kept hoping she would pull through. She will stay in our hearts forever. Thank you so much for allowing us to have this time with Maisy - she was the most perfect dog we could have wished for. We've asked for her to be cremated and we'll be picking up her ashes so we can keep them with us.



Hi John

Unfortunately Oscar passed away at the weekend, very unexpected as no sign of illness whatsoever. Had his usual walk on Cannock Chase with both of us on Friday afternoon but within half an hour he was very uncomfortable and in some distress. Took him to vets at penkridge and after bloods and a scan thought he had acute pancreatitis left him there overnight but took a turn for the worse on Saturday evening and he had a further scan on Sunday morning . He had a growth against his pancreas so nothing could really be done a very hard decision was then made with a very heavy heart to let him go quietly and without any suffering. After over nine years of having him must say gave such pleasure to both of us and everyone how came into contact with him such a star. So really need to put the beating heart back into the house I realise that we can never find another Oscar but would like to give another rescue a forever home. However Anne says must be golden and of course a Cocker. 

Best regards
