In memory of Ruby Fenris Brandy Snap 15.07.1997 - 21.07.2008

Dear Ruby,

I am writing you this letter today, because I am thinking of you and the good times we had. I can't believe its five years since you died.

You we're my heart's delight: you with your big smile and wagging tail (wagging body!). You were always happy to see me whether it was a good or a bad day.........and then you would talk to me like only a setter can! You were always there; next to the bed, next to the table, in front of the tv or going for a ride in Philadelphia (the old white sporty Honda). We went from there to here to everywhere in that old car......

You would cuddle up next to me and say: "Phil, I really love you so much".

My dear Ruby, I know that you are the happiest dog in doggy-heaven. Enjoy all the fields of flowers and butterflies and a painfree-heavenly-angelic-doggylife.


This ode is to you my Rubyblue.

I miss you so much.

With all my love


(Ps. Don't worry about me, your brothers, Ari and Rhet are keeping an eye over me!)

A little thought for your Ruby !

It seems that all setters have the same character ! The best friends of the world !

Beautiful tribute to your beautiful Ruby.....had my eyes tearing up here.  I do believe we carry each of our beloved Irish in our hearts so they are never far from us......they even influence how we react, train and love our other Irish !

We can all relate to this, Phil. Lovely words and thoughts - Oh! How we miss them.

Beautifull words from the heart, setters do make us like this. The words come from the heart but Ruby will never leave your heart I am sure, and your memorys last forever.

Heartfelt words, echoed by us all to our dear Reds, now departed from this earth but in our hearts always...
