Yesterday, after 13 years of unconditional love,
Charlie allowed death to overtake him
He’d been slowing down anyway:
The old ticker on the blink,
Arthritis in his legs and more.
The old trooper staggered on.
Out with me on his final night,
We plod through the wet grass:
Making our time last.

RIP Charlie, a lovely tribute. He looked like a wonderful dog. Brought back memories of losing our Black Lab, Poppy, such a difficult time but so many wonderful memories, take care.

May he rest in the peace, John. Pets bring us so much joy and it is always heartbreaking when they go.

Thank you dear Keith and Pete. My Charlie allowed me to be his friend for the whole of his too short life. He was very kind indeed to me. I miss him greatly, everyday.

You know they have to go, and it always breaks your heart into a million pieces
