"Millie - previously known as Daisy came into our home from Rescue in April 2010 at 3 as a nervous and anxious girl who was unsure of everyone and everything, this was not helped by a serious heart murmur. However, in time with a lot of hard work from herself, ourselves and others helping her she learnt how to manage her everyday stresses and relax in her country home.

With patience and understanding she blossomed into a beautiful, loyal and faithful friend who showered unconditional affection to her family who equally adored her.

We were Initially a bit anxious how she would manage with her heart but that soon gave way to her pleading to be treated as any other normal dog regardless and so went on camping adventures, beach walks, mountain trails and many more activities that she loved to be a part off.

The quirkiest dog ever known but that was why she was so much loved by everyone who knew her, unique in many, many special ways.

We always knew one day would come when her heart would begin to fail and sadly that day came too soon, 5 years later as her photo shows her sitting proudly in her favourite place in the garden overlooking her home in April it was the beginning of the tell tale signs that not all was so good as she began to struggle in simplest of tasks.

All too soon it became harder for her and there was nothing our amazing vets could do. The heartache of watching her become weaker became too much and all too soon with heavy hearts we knew it was time for her to cross Rainbow Bridge and be free again to play with new friends and chase the bunnies.

An empty and quiet home now remains and will never be the same without our Millie who shared in our lives and is missed every day. The many happy memories will always remain very precious and cherished in our hearts. Thank you Millie for being a part of our family.. xx

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
