In Memory of Jess by lighteningfox In Memory of Jess by lighteningfox
My wonderful border collie Jess who gave me and those who knew her (postmen, binmen and milk men the exception) many happy years.
We got her as a 5 month pup from the Border Collie and Sheepdog Rescue, Richmond on February 14th 1997 and at first she was a trial having very strong instincts.
She chased cars, sheep, donkeys and runners but with time and perserverance she became the perfect dog hardly putting a paw wrong she used to greet us with a bark which sounded like she was saying hello and whenever she wanted out she could almost say a walk. She was such an intelligent dog and will always have a place in our hearts she was 15 when she fell asleep on Sunday morning we woke up and found her lying there on the kitchen floor. Tears were shed and then our friend came down and said we could bury her in her field, we selected a spot and started digging and then the sun shone down making us realise what a sunny spot she was laid to rest in.
We will miss her but we know she hasn't truly left us she will always be there in our memories.

:( I remember my border collie, Tessa, passed away in 2009. :( I knew her for a long time and cried a little. Hope this wonderful Border Collie rests in peace, also.

May she rest in peace,in our hearts,in our souls.She will never leave her bright spirit alone,but with us all.I remember my first cat,if you would like to hear a story,if not,just skip this part.

It all started when I was born.I had to stay in the hospital for a week,because I had swallowed water.I was close to death,but I survived,but developed asthma.My mother brought me home after that week,and that's when I saw him.He climbed in my crib and slept with me.I will never forget that time.3 years later,we had fully bonded.By the time I was 8-9 years old,he developed heart desease.We took him to the hospital,and he was put on medicine,and it killed him.It was too much for his heart,and they did it on purpose.He also had fluid in his lungs,and he was breathing heavily.We put him to sleep on that day.May he be in our hearts forever.

Wow.. That is so sad.. I had a dog.. Her name was Mocha my first dog.. I loved her.. But the animal control came because they were barking too much.. My mom said we are going to give 2 of our dogs away.. So mocha was one of them, I was depressed for days,, I wonder everyday is she in a good home? But ill never know.. Where she is ,she is in my heart...

She will always watch over you, and even in your sleep, i'm sure she will watch you and your familly till they go to see her.
Rip Jess

I had a hamster before, let me get started on my story...

I have always wanted a hamster, well one day i went to get one, and i saw this hamster, i didn't pick him but he picked me, i finally got the hamster i wanted, it was my first hamster, i said him for almost 3 years till he passed away peacefully in his sleep aswell, he was a proud father of 19 hamsters pups.

aw, similar story to Jess I always wanted a dog from when I was very young but we lived in a town and my mam and dad had full time jobs they said that when we moved to the country I could have one five months later a rescue border collie five months old came into our lives. I finally had my dog and she was so special I still miss the greeting that she would give us in the morning she could almost say hello and then when she wanted a walk she could almost say that too everyone knew what she wanted.
She didn't suffer which is the best thing as she was so intelligent she would know what the needle was for and us trying not to cry she would have picked up on that. So she just passed away night before went on two long walks ate her dinner and in the morning she was gone
