Tasha He cannot be a gentleman which loveth not a dog.

- John Nothbrooke.

Tasha came to usa from the dog pound in Yorkshire. Her owner was arrested three times in one week for drink driving!!!!! She ended up on death row at the pound. She hadn't eaten in over two weeks. Now she was very ill and too emaciated to carry on. She was an 11 years old Ridgeback. We had her for only a day. She lay in the sunshine yesterday for hours and was loved, now she has gone to a better place, where she won't be let down by people. Goodnight, Tasha, I'm sorry we couldn't help you. Pat and Charles.
A dog naps so much because it loves so hard.

Tommy
This is Tommy 3 legs, he came from the dog pound at Barnsley, he was on death row. No one wanted a 12 year old dog with three legs. We brought him home and he had 6 years with us before passing on. Now he will have four legs and can run around on Rainbow Bridge with his friend Sandy, who died a few weeks after him. I would like to think they are together again. Loved and missed every day. Pat and Charles.xxxx
Sandy Spikey
Sandy passed away early in March 2008 just a few weeks after his best mate Tommy 3 legs. We adopted him when he was 10 years old. He had a good life with us for 5 years. He was so quiet and loving and we miss him so much. God Bless, you go and run with Tommy until we are all together again. Love Pat and Charles.xxxx Adopted from the society for abandoned animals two years ago, Spikey had a lot of medical problems but such a lovely old man. Restored to health on 'Rainbow Bridge' to play like a puppy again. Goodnight God Bless, until we all meet again. Pat and Charles.xxxx

You know you love him
Deep in your heart,
Though he's torn it and ripped it apart.

You know you miss her
'cos she's far away,
She only had a short time to stay.

Look up in the velvet sky,
Though it was time for them to die
They look down on you, two stars,
They glimmer and glisten brighter than Mars,
They are your two bright stars.

By Sophie, age 12.
