It is a year already since i had to let Ellie go, not a single day go'es by with out her in my thought's, was told it get's easier with time, but have really struggled with this little lady, i have lived the last 3 days walking her last 3 days, her last little walk and when she looked at me with those sad eyes,i knew, and her last brush in the garden on a lovely sunny day, she just lay there, wagging her tail, she was content.
I swam her for 3 years because she could'nt walk, my life was Ellies life, and Max being the gentleman he is, learnt to walk at her pace, she was my life.

Oh Christine - so many of us have been where you are now - but cherish the wonderful memories she left behind. Please give Max and Rollo a big hug from me and I am sending a cyber hug to you too.

Sweet dreams little lady - safe in your mum's heart forever

Ellie was a beautiful girl and I'm sure you must miss her terribly. The memories you have of your time together are so precious and she'll remain in you heart forever.

Thinking of you today, Christine.

You will never stop missing your beautiful girl - it is nearly four years since I lost my Murdoch, and I still reach down to stroke his head, and then remember he is no longer there.

You have to hold on to the fact that you gave her a wonderful life, and you let her go when you had to. But she will always be with you - snuggled safe in your heart forever.

Hugs to you.

Thinking of you today Christine, know how you're feeling. It will be three years tomorrow we lost our beautiful boy Murphy but the wonderful memories are still there. Your lovely girl will always be in your heart.

I know how you must be feeling Christine, my darling Dougal went to sleep in my arms way back in 1995, and I can still see the look of relief in his eyes. He was ready at the age of 16. I still mis him. Your girl will always be there in your heart.xx

Just catching up...Christine I remember Ellie passing and I remember how desolate you felt...anniversaries are always awful and the first ones are the worst. I never met your beautiful girl but shed tears when you spoke so movingly about her , we have all loved and lost and wished them well at the bridge .

I hope you take comfort in knowing we all care and send you cyber hugs, you are one of the ones who sends comfort to others so you know how much we all are thinking of you.

Seems to me that you were lucky to have Ellie, but she was just as lucky to have you as her Mum x
