RIP My Charlie’s Angel

Charlie RIP 5 Jan 2006- 17 June 2020 

For those of you who have lost a furry friend you will know the pain.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    I would like to share a few happy memories of my 14 1/2 years with my friend Charlie.

Charlie was getting old and really slow but she still had a happy spirit in her till the end. Only yesterday morning she happily greeted some visitors and enjoyed her pats. She even wanted to come on our walk in the afternoon. However dinner time came and she didn’t want to get off her bed. I put a blanket over her and gave her my usual kiss and cuddle before my bed and that is where I found Charlie this morning. She went very peacefully.  She is my first dog to have just not woken up and I feel very happy she didn’t suffer. Only a few days ago she snuck out under the gate and caught up with the gang for a walk the dear old girl. It was a slow trip home but she was so happy to be out.

Charlie always loved children from a small pup and would allow Maia and Cast to dress her up and play Drs and nurses and she was just amazingly patient.  Any children that came to see us she would follow around and make friends with. When Trinity came along she would hold Charlies tail. For years poor Charlie had very little hair on it!!

She was a great mum to five litters. But man did she put me through some stressful times when she’d go and hide in a burrow deep in a bank to have the babies. I had to pull her out from a tunnel as long as my body one time only half an hour before she had her babies..  I grabbed her front paws and Greg pulled my feet.. Adrenalin kick supreme!!

She loved her cuddles but she hated your face in hers although that never stopped me.

I have gone through some of my photos of our time together Id like to share.. I think they tell more of a story than my words can.  All day I have just expected her little head to pop up and say what are you doing mum? Trinity now takes place as our eldest here and its going to seem odd not to see both those old girls in their bed at the front door

Charlie ends an era here really as she was the last doggy connection to all my original border collies so I hope she catches up with all of them tonight in doggy heaven Sambo and Jessie, Tyler and Hoons, Maddie and Brucie. Charlie was always low in our pack pecking order but I know she had many fun times and I know  her old friends will look  forward and welcome her up in doggy heaven

Charlie you were my angel and I will miss that little face I fell in love with all those years ago. Rest in peace my friend. You will be very missed but never forgotten. xxx
