We are heartbroken in the Caley house. We’ve had to say goodbye to our little old lady this weekend.

My son is going to be so devastated not to have his best friend and four-legged partner in crime by his side. 💔

Millie – Collection

Dear Millie,

17 and a half years old, I’m sure you are ready for a decent rest.

Thanks for looking after us all this time, we’ll miss you.

I’m sure Laddie will guide you over the Rainbow Bridge. ❤🐕

Love always, the Caley Family. xx

They Will Not Go Quietly

They will not go quietly,
the pets who’ve shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits still can make us think
we hear them at the door
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
And, sometimes, coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them…
and always will.

    1. Thank you, that’s very kind. She certainly did. She was a rescue and we always wondered how someone could have given away such a loving little soul. KL ❤

  1. I’m so sorry to hear that Millie has gone. She was a good age, but that only makes her absence larger. Biggles went last Monday… he was a good age for a guinea pig, but his heart wasn’t well enough to carry on.

    1. Thank you, Jemima, that’s very kind. We do take comfort in her age but we’re still missing her like mad. Sorry to hear you had your own loss too. KL ❤

    1. Thank you, that’s such a beautiful sentiment, Myrna. I certainly think they deserve the highest place, they give so much love. KL ❤

    1. Thank you, Geoff. Totally shocked us, we were sure we’d be in the Guinness world records for Britain’s oldest dog. Sadly not to be but she is at peace now and the vets were amazing. I know you have a vet in your family and can say how difficult a job that must be but equally, it is a kindness they perform (when they have to). KL ❤
