Poppy Doyle


Recommended Posts

Last May, Poppy was very poorly and we thought we were going to have to say goodbye to her. But she was just fooling us and she went on to enjoy her 13th birthday and then Christmas and then saw in 2010 and enjoyed the first few months of that too. But as 2010 has worn on, Poppy has got more and more tired. Well, her mind didn't get tired and her eating mechanism never wavered, but her back legs were very tired indeed.


She saw the vet the other day and we all concluded that she was well enough to potter on but today she was struggling and so we took her in this afternoon to be reunited with Tetley who left us yesterday.


We've been here before, with having to say farewell to two dogs within two days (actually this time, it's two dogs within one day) and it sort of makes it harder to do, because it's almost beyond comprehension. But when it's got to be done, it's got to be done, even if the timing is particularly horrendous.

Oh Bev, I'm so sorry to see this. It's hard to write how I feel. My DD is worried about her 15 yr old Chow/Grey and a few others right now. I went thru the multiple bridge crossings 2 years ago & they are terrible. Hope everyone else is ok. Hugs to all at the Doyle house.

I can only imagine the grief you are feeling to lose two of your babies in such a short time. I am so sorry for your losses.


I loved your tribute picture - together again - and that is how they always be now.


Run free together Tetley and Poppy.
