Nobody could ever have loved you more than I did, I never intended to have another addition to my furry family, after my beloved DJ passed away. I was just going to have Daisy & Timmy. Though out of the blue, there you were, the most beautiful black & tan Cavalier I had ever seen – on a listing that I happened upon by pure accident & though I wasn’t intent on having another, I found myself travelling to meet you. Despite the warning growls at your old temporary home, I wondered what I was doing putting you in the back of my car!!
You never went out for walks before and you were just a puppy making machine. It’s no wonder that you were growling at me, wondering who I was and what I was doing. You never liked being brushed, or having your nails cut. Though it soon became clear that underneath your fear, you had a heart made of absolute pure gold.
Once you gained your trust in me, there was very little I couldn’t persuade you to do with a little courage and self belief in yourself, which over time you realised your potential as an individual, as a dog & a dog that could not have been loved more.
I loved the way you used to snuggle up on the sofa & how you would cuddle me after you’d eaten your meals. I adored watching you run around the park with absolute abandonment. There are so many things that I could sit & write about you, you were a kind, caring and 100% loyal dog. I could NOT have asked for anymore.
There is no amount of time that could ever have been long enough to have had you in my life, so I consider myself very fortunate to have had you for as long as I did, though you will remain in my heart forever, and I can’t wait to see you again.
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH my beautiful, beautiful Archie and I miss you with a great intensity, I can’t express just how much you mean to me. Thank you for being in my life, though it will never feel quite the same without you, but you left your beautiful paw prints on my heart. XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX For eternity.
