A year ago today I lost my best friend, only now can I bare to post it publicly, although lots of people do know and I did put a tribute in the yearbook last year.

He was my precious Merlin (Moppetswood Touch of Magic) healthy and happy right to the end he collapsed and died in about an hour at 16 years, 7 months and 8 days.

"I held you in my hands as you came into the world
I held you in my arms as you left
and I will hold you in my heart forever"


You were truly magic.
Your legacy lives on in your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Thinking of you, today, Hazel - big hugs.

Merlin was indeed a fantastic boy, and a great ambassador for our beloved breed.

We are so grateful for Merlin who is Lexi's Dad. Because of Merlin, and of course Hazel, we have looked after and adored Lexi who is the loveliest and most mild mannered little girl we have ever had. Our daughter Suzanne just read that and sulked! We met Merlin when we took Lexi away and his beautiful temperament won us over. Always remembered with affection

Merlin was in your life for all his - but it's such a shame that we have to say goodbye to our pets far too soon in ours .

Cherish his memories and the time you had together - his legacy was all his children and grandchildren and grandchildren as you say and he lives on in them.

Take care Hazel - you have had an awful year without him and with your health and you have been so brave through it all.

Please remember your friends are only ever a mouse click away on here

luv n hugs

Hazel, I was looking through a couple of year books yesterday and actually stopped to re read your tribute to Merlin, what a co-incidence! Thinking of you, and I hope you can take some comfort in the legacy he has left. x

Can't believe a whole year has gone, it seems like only yesterday; but then it always will.

Sleep well Merlin. xxxx
