Howdy from Stella

Howdy Mates.  We are overwhelmed and want to thank each and every one of our furriends who left messages of sympathy and support for our family.  It has been a horrible week.  Our home seems so empty without our Rory.  He used to follow mum around everywhere and she was always having to squeeze past him or tell him to back up (which he could do, but in a very very slow way).  

Mum and the family have cried many tears and sometimes it helps a little but sometimes it doesn't.  It just sucks.  

I have been fine.  Mum was worried about me but I was worried about her so I have been really good and giving her lots of cuddles and love.  Dad moved Rory's bed out of the lounge room for two days, then we moved it back.  That big space was just too sad to look at.  As you can see, I have taken over Rory's bed.  I think he would be ok with that.  Mum bought me a new cover for it so it would be clean but she misses the smell of Rory.  

Me and Penny have been hanging out together.  We even played chasey yesterday and Dad thought we had both gone nuts.  We probably have.  

So mates, we are hanging in there.  Thanks again for supporting us.  Blogville is the most caring place in the world.

No worries, and love, Stella xxxx

Rory has gone to the Rainbow Bridge

Dear Friends

It is with a deep deep sadness I have to tell you that we helped Rory to the Rainbow Bridge on Monday 10 October 2016.  Our great big, sweet darling boy has gone.  We are utterly heartbroken.  

He had been unwell for a short time and last Wednesday we took him to the Vet.  He had a temperature, high heart rate and seemed very unwell.  After checking him out our Vet diagnosed what she thought was a chest infection.  He was given antibiotics and we brought him home.

He did seem to rally, but by Saturday was really bad and stopped eating.  We once again had to help him to walk with a sling as he had no strength in his back legs.  We kept up his fluids and antibiotics and he again rallied Sunday, but Monday morning was again very flat and we took him back to the Vets thinking he would go on a drip and perk up till he started eating.  Upon further examination, our dear Vet, whom we love dearly, found a large painful mass near his stomach.  He had shown no signs of pain before this.  Another of our Vets also checked Rory and after discussing all options, we decided our big darling boy could not suffer anymore.  For the last six months his legs have been getting considerably worse.  It broke my heart to see him trying to walk.

He left us surrounded by his loving family.  I told him I loved him and kissed his dear sweet face.  

It is so bloody unfair.  Rory, my big goofy boy, you never complained.  You had your stupid embolism and got over that, you chewed your feet, you had gastro and now the shitty cancer has taken you.  I want you back.  I miss you so much.  My heart has broken.  Run fast run free Rory.  You deserved so much more.  Five years and three months is not long enough.  Never long enough.  We will love you forever big fella.  Always will.  You gave us your sweet pure love and asked for nothing in return.  Oh Rory, I miss you and our home is so empty without you.  Stella is on your big bed.  We don't know how she will be without you to boss around.

Howdy from us.

Howdy Mates.  We've been busy here at home.  We are happy to announce our hu-brother and his wife had a gorgeous little girl called Susanna Jade, born at the end of July.  

We now have two little girls to love and enjoy.  Here is our other little cutie pie, Evie.  She has grown in leaps and bounds since her brace came off.  Mum calls her our little butter ball.

Evie has learnt to give kisses.

And here are our faces too.  Rory is worried about getting grey but mum says, no worries, she has plenty of hair colour if he needs some, bwahahahaha.

We have been inside a lot as this last winter has been the coldest, wettest and most windy since, well, forever.  We had some storms that were horrible and are so glad Spring is nearly here.  Rory has been naughty and chewed his nail again, sigh.  He has been good for ages and mum had been leaving his boot off his good foot and he was only wearing one on his bad paralysed foot.   No worries though mates.  It's healing nicely.  (He always seems to do this in winter and we don't know why). 

Well mates, that's it for now.  Love ya all heaps, even when we're busy, you are in our hearts

No worries, and LOVE, Stella and Rory
