Just wanted to let you all know that tragically we had to let our beloved Ruairi go yesterday. He slipped away at home with us cuddling and talking to him through our tears. The vet was wonderful as ever.

Miss him and am watching Dillon and loving him more than ever as he must be grieving for his soulmate as much as we are in his way.

Poor Ruairi, only 6 years old and all that sparkle and life gone. Am totally bereft. thank you for all your kind comments and sympathy.

Too young Ruairi to leave your family. Rest sweetly beautiful boy. Hugs to those left behind.

Jane, as I was reading your post, wee Dougal dashed in and immediately stole the dishtowel off the oven door, AGAIN, and raced down the hall! With tears in my eyes and smiling through a lump in my throat, I thought "here's to you, sweet Ruairi, here's to you!" My thoughts and prayers are with you during this heart wrenching time. xx

Sorry for your terrible loss

So very very sorry to see you have lost dear Ruairi. It is heartbreaking to lose a member of the family at any age but losing one young is the worst thing that can happen. I am sure he had a wonderful life with you and you were able to relieve him of fear and pain in the end. My thoughts are with you.
