If love alone could keep them here , none of these dogs would be at the Rainbow Bridge. They are part of the Success Stories of the Rescue, for they all found a forever home - where they were
respected, protected and LOVED!
In Memory Of Harry
Harry here fast asleep.
It was heart breaking to everyone who knew him, as he passed away peacefully.
Harry lived with Ruth for 14 1/2yrs.
I bred him and named him after my Dad to whom I had just lost.
Harry was a typical Handsome Fox Terrier, everything needed to go his way and his new owner Ruth paid for it if it didn`t.
My advice about Foxys were taken in vain by Ruth at first but she begun to learn fast from me,
and in the end Harry became a fantastic companion(most of the time)to her.
He always hated cats and would love a punch up with certain dogs but like most fox terriers mellowed with age.
Because he would always come and stay when Ruth was away,in a way was still my pup and I shall miss him
so very much,even though my cat is much relieved.
Rest in peace Harry, We will always miss you ,you little tyrant .
Lee x And his mum Ruth xx
We rehomed Fionn over 7 years ago, he was known as Charlie then. We went to visit Lee one Saturday afternoon in March
2009 and came back to Lincolnshire with Fionn ( aka Charlie).
Sadly Fionn passed away on Monday of this week. He had recently been diagnosed with cancer, had coped with his first session
of chemo very well and was due his second treatment later this week. How ever he had lost mobility in his back legs and the cancer had returned.
He was a fabulous dog and will be missed by Paul and myself and our Patterdale / Jack Russell cross Brady. Fionn always lived life
in the chilled out zone, enjoyed his food , his special chair and his holidays in France. He was great with other dogs and people. We love the breed and were always glad we went to visit Lee.
Fionn filled a great void in our lives, when our first Wired Haired Fox terrier Cal passed on.
Maddy who was rehomed by Joy at 2 years of age and passed way 3 weeks ago at the age of 15 and a half.
A character through and through, feared by the vicar and the postman. Lover of squirrels and a footwarmer!
"We miss the dog hairs and her knack of knowing when the fridge opened even though she was deaf and the growl if she knew she had to go out and didn't want to.
The house is dead without her." Sept 2016
"He will always have a very special place in our hearts" Simon.
Lulu who left Hazel on the 4th March 2016 is missed very much and will never be forgotten.
Archie came to us one week after Molly in June 2002 when he was two and a half. He had behavioural issues but, with a firm, loving and consistent approach, he turned into the most lovely dog imaginable. The key to Archie was that he was a very frightened little dog and, as soon as he knew that we were in charge, he was able to relax and be himself.
Archie loved people, other dogs, and was very demonstrative in his affections – you wouldn’t get a bite from Archie but you would get a lovely kiss.
The only word to describe Archie was ‘dogged’ to the end; he never gave up and he has left a huge Archie-shaped void in our lives. Our other fox terrier, Alice, came to live with us when Molly died and she treated Archie like her puppy and, most of the time, he let her do it. She is very quiet without him.
For the last few months of his life, he used to go out for his ‘walks’ in his dog buggy because he had lost the use of his back legs, with Alice walking by his side (though when it was very cold, Alice used to get in with him),
We are all bereft as are the many visitors to our home who came to know and love Archie, this warm, eccentric little boy. Rest In Peace, Archie, we will never forget you.
Lavender came to live with me on the Isle of Wight in August 2010, having spent 4 months with Lee in Norfolk. She was eight and a half at the time. She soon settled in to her new home. As I live on my own she was a great companion to me, but she also loved the company of all who visited my home. Anybody visiting the house (including complete strangers) would be enthusiastically greeted by Lavender who would then rush off to find them a soft toy to play with!
Lavender was gentle natured and was great fun with children. She also had many amusing (and slightly daft!) characteristics, which endeared her to everyone.
The sudden loss of Lavender on 18 May of a heart related condition has left me and my family feeling very sad and empty. She will be greatly missed by visitors to the house and by many people in the neighbourhood who got to know her well. I only had her for just under three years, but it feels much longer as she made such an impression.
Our dear gentle Poppy came to us in 2009 after a stay at Battersea and Lee's home in Norfolk, we loved her from the very start of our time together.
She gradually gained confidence and developed the terrier stubborn streak. Sadly Poppy had severe heart problems and became ill suddenly in the night of May 24th 2013. We rushed her to the emergency vets but she was too weak and we had to let her go. We are devastated at the loss of our darling girl. She has been buried to rest in the garden where she loved to play. We miss her so much and will never forget her.
