My darling little golden haired angel. We met when you were 6 weeks old - you waved your paws at me and we fell in love. We have had the best time together - I could not have asked for a better friend to keep me company. Carly was my shadow - wherever I went, she went. Her favourite place in the world was over my left shoulder where I could cuddle her and tell her my secrets. I would often get a kiss on my cheek just to let me know she loved me. She loved getting her ears twirled and would remind me with a touch of her paw when she wanted a cuddle or when it was time to go to bed. I almost lost her at 6 years old when she went missing in a storm and was hit by a train - but we were destined to find each other again and we worked hard to get back to health after losing her left eye and having 2 broken legs. I think it was sheer determination and love that saw us through. She was amazing after the accident and behaved like nothing had happened to her - people were amazed at her recovery and determination to get well again and be with Mum. This year we hit another hurdle and liver cancer ended up beating us. Her little body was so tired - she would have kept going if she could. 

It is 1 week exactly since I lost my best friend and companion of 14 and 1/2 years. I am brokenhearted. 

Thank you little one for the laughs, the companionship and most of all, the love you gave me. You will always be in my heart. You are my once-in-a-lifetimer darling girl and I will never forget you.

All my love Little One.... Mum x


6/2/12 - My darling Little One,

It is 3 months today that we were parted. I have never felt so alone and lost as I have over the last 3 months without you. I hurt every day and I miss you so much. Xmas was hard Darling Girl - we were meant to have one more Xmas together, but it was not to be. I thought I was handling things Ok, but the last 2 weeks I have thought about you continuously. I keep looking for your face at the window when I come home from work or the little one eye through the crack in the gate as I drive up the driveway. I just want to hear your tippy tappy toes down the hallway. I talk about you alot, your pictures are everywhere around me. The little pink rose I planted over your resting place is blooming beautifully and I will continue to light candles for you every day. I have a little snippet of your fur around my neck every day in a locket so you are with me always darling girl. I hope you know that I will never forget you sweetie and you will always be in my heart. I will continue to honour your life by trying to be the good human you always thought I was.

All my love little one. Sending you your special kiss....  Your Mummy xxx
