Dear Bella,

I want to start by thanking you for being everything: a best friend, a dog and most of all, a teddy bear. Without you, I don’t believe I would be where I am today. You are the reason I smile and carry on when times are hard. Around you, I feel free, comfortable and am just able to be myself. You never judge or growl about my clumsiness. To you, I am not disabled but differently-abled. My wheelchair is just something else to investigate and chew or chase–not a barrier or something to avoid me for! You have grown from a cute, fluffy puppy into a beautiful dog I am proud to call my own. We have had many a funny hour, my friend, whether it be chasing a tennis ball or chewing up my remote control (fun for you, not for me). You certainly know how to keep yourself busy! One thing’s for sure: you’re an amazing little madam and I love you with all my heart, little lady. Here’s to many more happy years together as one!

Lots of love, bones and cuddles from your biggest fan, Mummy of course!

Dear Layla,


We have been through it all. You helped me grow up, you having babies (very unexpected but what a great surprise). I didn’t know you for that long when you had your babies but what an amazing experience to show the love you are capable of. The babies you brought into this world mean everything to me. I’m so happy to come cuddle and kiss you & Pepper when I get home, and love taking pictures of your beautiful face. You became mine because we were meant for each other. Forever. I love you and couldn’t imagine life without you.

Dear Scrappy Doo,

Scrappy Doo

To my best friend, Scrappy Doo. I miss you every day Mr. Woo, gone from sight but not from my mind. For 16 years you were my companion, my best friend, and you knew ALL my secrets. There were sad days, where your wagging tail cheered me up, and happy days where we would walk together for hours, you would growl & I would talk! You always knew if something was up. Some days, I cant breathe without you, and my heart hurts every day knowing that I’ll never snuggle up with you at night, stroke your fur, or smell those ‘cheesy’ paws. It’s funny how a dog can change your life, and how when they are gone, you feel like something is missing. I hope you are pain free at the bridge, running free–and that you will be there waiting for me when I finally meet my maker. Scrappy Doo, you are one in a million and I will never forget you. I miss you every day xx
