    DefaultFarewell our chocolate boy.

    Eleven years ago next month we prepared for yor arrival, you were to be daddy's first dog and he was so excited to be getting you.

    We made the trip up to collect you and you sat on daddy's lap whilst i drove the car.

    Part way home you were so wriggly and trying to reach up and lick daddy's face that i had to pull over so that we could swap seats and i held you for the rest of the journey.

    You matured into a well behaved young dog and in your first year you and I proudly took the title of best dog and handler at our obedience school. The things you learnt that year never left you and you continued to be a very well behaved and clever boy right to your final day.

    You were a role model to your 2 brothers in your lifetime, your beloved Jasper who you have grown up with and been so close and happy with over all these years, and more recently little Jed who like you is a calm, intelligent and well behaved boy.

    It has been a horrible 12 months for you Jonah, first of all you were diagnosed with diabetes which zapped your energy and left you an old man, you found it hard to enjoy your walks and your swims and had to endure your twice daily injections, yet through all that you never ever moaned and continued to smile your smile and wag your chocolate tail.

    In more recent months you lost your sight and your once sparkling hazel eyes turned a bluish opaque and caused you to stumble and bump into things, your back legs began to slip and yet you still smiled that smile and wagged that big ole chocolate tail.

    You were a canine gentleman, gentle, kind, loyal and loving. I wanted you to keep your dignity and not suffer any longer.

    This week i had to do the hardest thing I have ever done, i had to be your voice and make a decision on your behalf, I hope and pray that i did what you wanted me to do boy, as i am having real trouble in accepting the decision i made.

    In my mind you are no longer the frail and stumbling old man who cannot see, but your younger former self, shiny, sparkling hazel eyes and bounding over fields and swimming through pools.

    I hope you can forgive me for the decision i made Jonah, i did it for you, because you didn't deserve to suffer any longer.

    Jonah, our little chunk of chocolate in a kitchen full of blacks.(labs)

    Rest in Peace angel, you were loved more than you will ever know.

    Mommy, Daddy, Jonathan, Jasper and little Jed.

    Lest we forget. Run free Jonah.


    an epigram (circa 300 B.C.) translated by J. W. Mackail, as LIV in his collection Select Epigrams from the Greek Anthology (1890):


    Thou who passest on this path,
    If haply thou dost mark this monument,
    Laugh not, I pray thee, though it is a dog's grave.
    Tears fell for me, and the dust was heaped above me
    By a master's hand.
