Good Night Mr Glenn...

It's a very sad day today in our house. Our Mr Glenn has gone to the stars... after 17 1/2 years he's going to leave a BIG gap in our lives... We all have very happy memories to remember him by... he guarded us... especially the children like we were 'his' flock... I cradled him in my arms as the vet put him to sleep today... it doesn't seem 2 minutes since I was holding him when he was a puppy!
He was officially my Mum's dog & we all loved him dearly. He could charm the birds out of the trees for a titbit of food! I pray my mum was waiting for him close by today....



...17 years ago.. we have shared so much of our lives with this special dog!
He would come & plonk himself down next to us & lean!!!!
...where did time go??



Glenn guarded all of us... he spent ages sniffing Rachel after her first day at school! hehe..

Happy memories...


I wanted to share this news on my blog as I might not be around for a while... Take care. I look forward catching up soon.xx


Thanks for calling by... x x

  3. I share your tears today as I know only too well how hard it is to say cherio to a best pal. I had a gorgeous border collie many years ago, he was called Glen. He went to a farm near Garstang and became the top cattle dog in the NW. Remember those wonderful times Gez and take warmth from them.

  5. Oh Gez so sorry to hear your sad news, dogs are part of the family and after 171/2 years you will miss Glen. My Vet said to me that it is the worse part of having a dog when it is time for them to go. I really feel for you.
    Big hugs to everyone Pat xxxxxx

  7. Thinking of you. Its such a hard decision to make for our lovely family members. It broke my heart when I had the same desision with my cat. Im sure your Mum was waiting to meet him on the other side.

  8. Oh Gez, I am so sorry - I know how heartbreaking it is to lose one's faithful companion. Took me four years to be able to talk about my little dog after he had gone without crying.
    Try to focus on the happy times, the wonderful memories (as you have done in today's blog)and maybe, make a scrapbook in honour of him.
    thinking of you all.

  10. I'm sure you have very mixed feelings today Gez. I know when we had to put down our collie and also our cats, we were sad but also knew that it was time for them to go. Ultimately it was a relief not to watch them get less and less able. Remember the good times XXX

  12. Gez....I just want to send you some caring thoughts right now. I lost my little girl in December and I had to take a break from my blog for several months. I was just too sad but I know that eventually I will remember her with more smiles and less tears. Best to you and your family. Nan

  22. So very sad, it is such a heartbreak after a lifetime of love and fun. Mr Glenn was an amazing age, he must have had a fantastic life. He will be walking with your mum now, his tail wagging wildly.

  26. Oh Gez my love I am feeling so so sorry for you all today and am joining you with the tears. It must have been a very difficult thing for you to have to do and I can only imagine how awful you must all be feeling.
    I truly believe that your Mum was there waiting for him and I bet they are walking together - neither of them feeling anymore pain xxx

  31. I'm so very sorry Mr Glenn sounds like he was the perfect little man and I understand just how awful it is to lose such a loved member of the family. I always like to think of my rainbow bridge babies having fun and restored to health at the bridge and waiting until we meet again.

    Lots of hugs to you all xxxxx

  32. Oh Gosh! I'm crying here - I totally and fully identify, being a dog lover. I lost my baby a good few years ago now but I still cry for him and just don't think I could ever replace him, even now. They leave a big chunk of themselves, don't they, our little friends? You have lots of lovely memories to celebrate and what a privilege to have known him so long and to have given him such a happy life! Cath x
