What a cracking looking boy - remember the lovely eyes and the wagging tail

It's an absolute gut wrencher when you lose your faithful pals

At times words are hardly enough but wanted you to know that we are thinking about you. What a beautiful beautiful dog and a very fortunate one to have been able to share a happy and kind life with people wholoved him. I heard someone say recently that a dog is the only animal who loves his owner(s) more than he loves himself. Struck a particular chord with me as we've always had collies, take care

Dogs' lives are much too short. We had westies and sadly both died within a few months of each other at about 12 years old. I told my wife  "that's it I don't want another dog to go through this again". Two days later we were in the dogs home and came back with a lovely collie /cross something as the house seemed empty without a dog to welcome you home. Very sorry for your loss but try to remember all the good times and the love you gave each other. You may think it too soon but there are a lot of dogs needing a good home. You never forget any of them . :hug:

Thank you so much for all your lovely words, I set myself off again last night, couldn't see by the time i'd finished, sorry to ramble on but I had to let it out, and reading your lovely replies has set me off again. Can't let him see me like this, he's struggled as well.
We have talked about going back for another but somehow this time I just can't, not yet, we have usually had 2 dogs at a time, most middle aged when we got them, so we've seen a few come an go, but none were as special as Jack, and it seems wrong to think we can just go and replace him.
I remember the picture in the hayfield so well, we'd had him about 12 months and he's settled down and looked so relaxed and happy.
I think Colliewoman? says somewhere there is a group who get the 'free to good home' dogs (collies?) off the adverts, maybe when we are ready I'll find out who they are.

So sorry to hear you sad story and what a stunning boy he was.  I know the group who save the 'free to good home' collies - just let me know when you are ready and I will put you in touch.

One day your next dog will be at one of those centres and will call you.  You will just know when it is time. :hug:
