In loving memory of my darling Fergus, who died one year ago today. It's hard to believe that a whole year has gone since he left me so suddenly, it only seems like it happened yesterday. He truly was the wind beneath my wings. I miss him so much. Sleep well little man, you are forever in my thoughts.

Anne, I'm so sorry to hear Kate's story. I agree with you, I'm sure that they are saying goodbye in their own way. When I brought Fergus home for the last time, he just wanted to lick the end of my nose and nibble my shoulder..this was him being extrememly affectioante and he reserved it for those he loved best. He couldn't get close enough tp me, stayed as close as he could and I'm sure he was saying his goodbyes as it was only hours later that he died.

My first setter, Oliver, had been very ill and was at the vets, but came home and seemed to be much better, greeting everyone and making sure that he checked out every inch of the garden. We said at the time he looked as if he wanted to make sure he remembered everything. He died later that night, so I am sure he was also saying goodbye.

When I lost Flynn in 2006, he turned to look at me and then collapsed and died at my feet. Again, I felt that he was saying goodbye. I'm sure that they have a sixth sense about these things, far more than we do.

Dear Michelle,

what a lovely photo of Fergus. I know how you must feel today. Losing a dog is very sad. My dear Tosca passed away 7 years ago. She has never been out of my heart.
