Goodbye Auntie Penny

Auntie Penny has goned. I does not know where she goned but she not at Grandpawents any more and she casnot be on a walk because it has beed 3 days now and that one really long walk! Auntie Penny old and does not like walking that far either.

Everyone tell me that she not coming back and Grandpawents and Mum be sad. It pretty quiet and boring at Grandpawents now. I has no one to go crazy with. Auntie Penny always goes nuts when we go round there and I bite her face and ears and bounce around and whenever Auntie Penny wants to go outside for a wee I bark at her like mad and run to the front door so I get to go out too. But I guess there no point doing that either. And when Auntie Penny wants to get food I bark with her too. Yup. It definitely quieter round Grandpawents now, even if it just me making lots less noise.

Mum says I has to say good bye to Auntie Penny now.

Good bye Auntie Penny, thanks for putting up with me.

~Lickies, Ludo


Note from Mum:
I know there can be some confusion over dog speak in blog land, so yes, for those not on Facebook, Penny passed away on Sunday 4th November, at about 2.30pm. She was 15 years old, and she had a stroke. She has left a big void in our lives. I got her as my ‘Christmas present’ just short of my 13th birthday. She was the best first dog a girl could have hoped for, and she truly was the epitome of the family dog, very loved, very happy with life, and very flawed. She lived her life in a perpetual state of excitement and we are so happy that she kept that spirit up until her last couple of days. She deserves a proper memorial, with pictures and nice words, but I can’t do it right now without blubbing. Instead, a message from my 14 year old neice. “It’s sad to hear about Penny, we will all miss her when we come to see you because she was always very excited to see us and very friendly […]  R.I.P. Penny xxx”

  1. It is hard to lose your best friend and buddy Ludo – but where Penny has gone – she can run crazy all the time and eat what ever she wants and best of all – one day WAY WAY off in the future she will be waiting in the special place for you too and you can go crazy and have the biggest game of bitey face ever! Aunt Penny had the bestest and longest life and that is something to celebrate and not just miss but it okay to miss too – it is all part of the grieving process. Ear snuffles and lickies – from all of us.

When you are ready I would do that memorial to her, it helped me get through both Ceilidh and Tucker's loss.
