Favourite Things

he would play for hours and hours with a tennis ball, and he loved his soft toy, which we named his "Baby"

Best Qualities

he was my best friend and was most loyal and loving dog ever

It is 6.00 a.m. on Wednesday 11/4/2012 this time yesterday my beautiful boy Tyson was still alive, sleeping soundly in his bed in the lounge, oh how I wish it was yesterday morning, to have to hussle him out of bed to go out to toilet, but sadly I will never do that again.

As I left for work on Tuesday 10 April, 2012 I had no idea the sorrow the end of my day would bring, to arrive home with my 15 year old son, who went into our yard to find our most treasured boy had passed away, his collar had got caught on the fence, the immense pain that we are feeling cannot be described, and for my son to find our beautiful Tyson like that will be me in my heart forever.

Tyson's other name was houdini, he was the true escape artist, we have fences all around house over 6ft, but he has barrelled through and scaled all of them, he just couldnt face being home alone, if only I had taken the extra days off after Easter as I have done in years past, I would of been here and I wouldnt be feeling this absolute devastation, I only had him at my vet 10 days ago and he suggested that we medicate our boy as he had all the signs of seperation anxiety, I reluctantly started him on medication last week, he seemed much calmer, although the whole family was home with him being the easter break.

He truly loved his family and any sort of human, he was the kindest and most gentle dog, he would give me that big staffy smile when I would look at him.

Our lives our richer for having the pleasure of being "his humans" I will love him forever, and I miss him with all of my heart.

What we are going to do without him in our lives, I cannot imagine, our home is so empty, I am going to do his favourite walk this morning around the lake as he would love that, I can actually see him jumping around as I put my runners on, he was so clever he knew once I had the runners on, that was it,we were off.
