Cher when she was younger. If a dog will not come to you after he has looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience.Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) 28th president of the U.S
Cher, died 15 December 2004 aged 17 years. Wait with the others CBB.
The dog has seldom been successful in pulling man up to its level of sagacity, but man has frequently dragged the dog down to his. - James Thurber (1894-1961) U.S. humorist, illustrator.Cara
Nora
Here is a photo of my beautiful girlie "Nora".
Sadly we only had the pleasure of her company for two years and losing her has made an immense void in my life. God Bless you darling until we meet again.
Cheer
Here is a picture of my other girl (Cheer).
We were lucky enough to share our lives with her for seven years. (Both pictures above posted by Maureen Ward).
To our Angel Cara (Coorie) above, who sadly passed away on the 14th of November 2004. We loved you more than anything in this world. I hoped there was a Rainbow Bridge (your Dad had never even heard of it), but we both now believe there is. As you lay there, lifeless in front of us, the air was fresh and the sky was sunny and the most beautifully coloured Rainbow arched itself over us. That was your message to us in those most painful moments, that was you saying that you were alright and happy. I imagine you up there, playing with all your Angel buddies, Lugsy, Jack, Carly and Ben and more than likely many many more. You were after all a very sociable girl! We miss you and will never forget you. Thank you for sharing with us your last precious years. Love you always, Mum, Dad, Rusty, Bracken and all your Ferret friends too. XXXX

If it is I grow frail and weak
And pain should wake me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done
For this last battle can't be won.

You will be sad, I understand,
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day, more than all the rest
Your love and friendship stand the test.

We've had so many happy years,
What is to come will hold no fears.
You'll not want me to suffer, so,
When the time comes please let me go.

I know in time you too will see
It is kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.

Do not grieve that it should be you
Who has to decide the thing to do.
We've been so close, us two these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
