On Thursday Morning at 1.30 am, we had to say Good Bye to our lovely Troy Boy.

He was 15 Years and 3 Month old.
Right until his last hours Troy enjoyed his twilight Years, going for slow walks and tucking into his dinner with gusto.
In the end it is likely that a brain Tumor has claimed his life. He went dramatically down hill on Wednesday Evening and at Midnight we made the decision to take him to the Vets. I will be forever grateful to the on call Vet for her empathy and kindness. She gave us all the time we needed to say our goodbyes and Troy peacefully slipped away in our Arms.
We are having him cremated and when his Ashes come back we will take him for his final trip to Beardie Bay.

Troy has had a long and happy Life, I am sure he would like you to smile when you remember him.

So very sorry to hear about Troy but it sounds as though he had a very happy (and long) life with you. Run free at the bridge with all your past beardie friends Troy.

Dear Gabi and Ian

Both Mark and I send our love and hugs to you both. Troy Boy was such a lovely character and we will certainly remember him with a big smile. I can hear his woof now just thinking about him. You will have so many good and happy memories to keep you going through this emotional time both now and into the future. I bet Izzy is getting extra cuddles to help you through, she is bound to be a bit confused without him.

Now dear Troy is up there at the bridge with all our beloved and missed friends - they will welcome and look after him and together they will all be looking down on us.


Love to you Gabi, Ian and Izzy xxx
Gilly and Mark

Gabi & Ian,
Am a Beardie newbie to the site but just wanted to say how sorry I am about Troy. He sounded lovely and you were blessed that he had a long and happy life with you. My heart goes out to you. Hope my Scooby is now playing with a Troy at RB.

Dear Gabi & Ian
My thought's are with you on the sad news that Troy Boy has had to leave you. His life was filled with love and many adventures and for those that were fortunate to have met him were very lucky people, he was a very Handsome boy and now he will be forever young again and running through the fields that are Arced with the beautiful rainbow.

Run free sweet boy xxx

Hi Guys word are never quite enough - he was a lovely boy and we enjoyed his company in Cornwall and other times. You and Ian have given his a loving home loads of adventures and the best care ever. He will leave a big hole but I know you have done a fantastic job giving him all he needed to the very end. Love Barbara & Steve and the girls.

Oh Gabi and Ian, I am so terribly sad to read about Troy. He was a fabulous boy (well you know why I loved him so much, don't you) and I feel like anything I write is just jibber, because I don't really know what to say, but I really know how you are feeling - don't most of us on here Sad

We often talk about Troy and Izzy, and hope that Izzy is coping ok without him, she must wonder where her mate has gone.

Troy had a wonderful life with you, what a lucky lad. Run free special boy xxx

Sending our love to you xxxx

Gabi and Ian - I was so very saddened to hear of the loss of your lovely boy. Your post brought tears to me as he was a Beardie we actually knew personally. He had a wonderful long life filled with love and fun.

Enjoy your memories of your special boy.

Xxx

A very sad day for you Gabi and Ian, but, as you say, he had the best life, and especially with you two.

We shall miss him but it will be good to remember him as I do, plodding along contentedly, wherever he felt like going, at his own speed and coming back to join us when he felt like it. It always raises a smile.That's how to be a beardie Wink

Sleep well my boy.
xxxxxxxxxx

So sorry to read this very sad news. Thinking of you both. (As I did last weekend on a trip with the girls to Lepe). Run free Troy.
We had to make that sad decision too last week with Smudge our old Springer boy. Maybe they are romping at the Bridge.
