Two Gone But Never Forgotten.....

As my own life begins to get back to normality I just wanted to mention to wonderful SHAK dogs who will never be forgotten.....

During the process of moving and having no internet reception I was given the very sad news that Sonny our original three legged dog had passed away. When he arrived with us Sonny was depressed. He need an operation called an entropian on his eyes, and look quite simply down in the dumps. On top of all this he had a front leg missing.....
After a few false dawns he found true love with a family that adored him, and with Graham a Dad who simply adored him. I think the picture below sums him up, especially after such a difficult start in life:

Then the 13th September marked the 4th anniversary of the death of a really BIG character at SHAK. Mama Bear was an amazing dog who touched all of our lives.....Here is what I wrote on her first remembrance:

It's a year today since we lost the biggest (in every sense of the word) dog SHAK has ever had. Mama Bear passed away in her kennel 5 hours before she was due to go into a foster home, and two days before she was due for surgery to remove mammary tumours.

Having arrived from the Midlands where she'd been a stray, she quickly won over the hearts of everyone, we were all desperate to see her through to better times, but it just wasn't to be.

The photo's above weren't staged, she literally decided she wanted to sit on my knee. At over 60kg she took some getting off. Still what a hug.

Nobody that was lucky enough to meet you Bear will ever forget you. I just wish we'd got you sooner. I'll see you at Rainbow Bridge for another hug one day.
