Smokey 2000 - 24.9.18

Post by MrsP » Mon Sep 24, 2018 9:28 pm

We lost our special Smokey Bear today and are beyond bereft. Run free, my sweetest, most special, special boy. You brought us so much joy and enriched our lives beyond imagination. It was beyond a privilege to have you in our lives ... thank you for loving us, and we love you to the moon and back, forever. My special boy, always in my heart ... always xxxxx Nicky & David and Harry
Smokey's thread:
For those of you that don't know Smokey's story I'll tell you, he arrived at Guildford kennels almost completely hairless, covered in scabs, thoroughly neglected and had just given up on life. Nicky couldn't watch that poor old boy (much older than anyone realised to begin with) go into a cold winter kennel, so along with her hubby David and darling staffie boy Harry they took him in. He blossomed into an absolute legend and one of the best looking dogs in Surrey (he's the placeholder on the StaffieRescue tab on the RescueRemedies website). So it's true 18 is quite an age for a dog but it's never enough, especially when it's a dog like Smokey, my heart has broken for Nicky, D & Harry today but I'm so glad they found him, I'll let the pictures say the free Smokey you wonderous cuddle enforcer xxxx

So sad and so so sorry to hear this sad news about Smokey. As Laura said he was a RR legend and it was a privilege and real honour to meet him on a few social occasions. Really feel for you Nicky, David and of course Harry, you did a truly wonderful thing rescuing him and giving him a new life, he was a stunning amazing boy. Run free at the bridge now sweet boy. xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Oh I am so sad to read this, my heart goes out to you Nicky, along with David and Harry. What can we say to ease the pain, it's so hard, but you know we all know that feeling and are there with you. I did meet Smokey, he was such a lovely dog. Our dogs can't live forever, and it's so hard to watch them go, but boy, Smokey gave you his best. Love and hugs Nicky xxxx

Its so difficult to type through tears. Having met the more than special Smokey many many times he was the cuddliest most amazing staffie boy who oozed love. A legend indeed. You instantly fell in love with him. He was adored by all.. My heart is breaking for you Nicky David and dear loving Harry. Xxxxxxxxx [cry.gif]
