Gone But Not Forgotten




Hi Ian, I am writing with sadness to let you all know that Tilly Todd had to be put to sleep on Saturday. We’ve had the pleasure of having her as our pet and companion for just short of 4 years. Tilly had struggled more recently with a number of issues including deafness, dementia and latterly arthritis. Along with our local vets we did everything we could to maintain Tilly’s quality of life and at the end of last week we agreed that the time had come to let her go.

Tilly has been a constant companion to Mum and myself and her lovely nature shone through whenever we were out and about – she was clearly a favourite with everyone we met! We’ve enjoyed some lovely holidays in Devon and Cornwall and covered a lot of miles, investigating numerous dirty puddles, bushes and smells, not to mention the squirrel chasing over the last three and three quarter years.

We’d like to thank CAESSR for giving us the opportunity to enjoy such a special time with Tilly. She was very much loved and Mum and I are struggling very much with her loss.

I hope we will be in a position to adopt another CAESSR dog at some time in the future.

Best wishes.





We got D4 off you a number of years ago. Today we have had to make the heart wrenching decision to put him to sleep.

He developed senile dementia and has become incontinent he has been struggling especially at night. We have tried a number of medical solutions but unfortunately they have all stopped working. On the vets advice we have as a family come to the decision it’s kinder for him.

We have been so honoured to have had him as our family pet and he will leave a huge hole in our hearts and Mollys our other caessr rescue.

I just wanted to let you know as we got him from yourselves. He was called Bobby when we took him.



Dear Caessr trustees

It is with a heavy heart we are emailing to let you know we sadly had to make the heartbreaking decision to send Henry to doggie heaven in Oxtober 2019. We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to adopt Henry from April 2012. He had his challenges but we worked very hard to give him a loving, caring and happy home for 7 years. He brought us all lots of joy and was a beautiful boy. He just stopped eating and we had a week of vets and overnight stays but his Liver was effecting all his organs and the vets sadly with all their hard work couldn't save him.

He was our world and we miss him dreadfully. 

With kind regards and thanks

Helen, Chris and family



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
