THIS PAGE IS A MEMORIAL TO ALL GOOD PYRIE'S WHO HAVE PASSED OVER TO RAINBOW BRIDGE!
MY FOREVER PET
There's something missing in my home,
I feel it day and night,
I know it will take time and strength
before things feel quite right.
But just for now, I need to mourn,
My heart -- it needs to mend.
Though some may say, "It's just a pet,"
I know I've lost a friend.
You've brought such laughter to my home,
and richness to my days.
A constant friend through joy or loss
with gentle, loving ways.
Companion, friend, and confidante, Tribute To A Best Friend Sunlight streams through window pane
A friend I won't forget.
You'll live forever in my heart,
My sweet, forever pet.
unto a spot on the floor....
then I remember,
it's where you used to lie,
but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet,
and muted echoes sound....
then I remember,
It's where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road,
and up beyond the hill,
then I remember it can't be yours....
your golden voice is still.
But I'll take that vacant spot of floor
and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice
and unused dish along the wall.
I'll wrap these treasured memorials
in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend
until we meet above.

SCOTTISH PYRENEAN RESCUE'S MASCOT
It is with a very heavy heart that I must let the Pyrie World know that Scottish Pyrenean Rescue's Mascot Charlie passed away on Friday 15th of November 2013 at 12 noon, he was doing fantastic, then that morning he lost the use of his last back leg, I gave him some metcam, thinking it was a muscle pain, but after 2 hours he still couldn't bear any weight on his back leg, there was a clicking sound coming from it, we knew that it was serious. We took him to Jeff at the Rescue Vets, he was the guy who did Charlie Amputation, he checked Charlie over and he said it was his cruiciate that had snapped, there was nothing he could do, as Charlie's quality of life would never be the same, we were gutted, he was in immense pain but never showed it, we both held him and reassured he was loved and safe when he went to Rainbow Bridge, his Legacy will live on with Scottish Pyrenean Rescue, he will always be our mascot, he inspired all at SPR and everyone who ever met him. It is a massive void in our life now, part of our heart went when he did, his Brother Barney & Sister Coco are so sad without him.
My best friend closed her eyes last night
As her head was in my hand But an angel just appeared to me R.I.P ALYS
the vets said she was in pain
and it was hard for her to stand
The thoughts that scurried through my head
As i cradled her in my arms
were of her younger puppy years
and oh so many charms
Today there was no gentle nudge
With an intense "i love you gaze"
Only... a heart thats filled with tears
remembering our joy filled days
and said "you should cry no more"
God also loves our canine friends
He s installed a "doggy door"
But an angel just appeared to me
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN!
