Today was the day that our Irish Boy told us it was time. Last year we lost our beloved Lucky on the third weekend of the month of July as well. Shane., Lucky is waiting for you at the bridge. Run to him and meet him, as you both run free together on this day.


An Irish Funeral Prayer


Death is nothing at all.

It does not count.

I have only slipped away into the next room.

Everything remains as it was.

The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.

Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

Call me by the old familiar name.

Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.

Put no sorrow in your tone.

Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.

Let it be spoken without effort

Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.

There is unbroken continuity.

Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?

I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.

All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.

One brief moment and all will be as it was before.

How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again.

Dear Paul and Anthony,

We are so happy that Shane (*Sheanor) had you for family after he left us at the farm. He was a lucky dog.. and you both were lucky to have had his spirit dwelling in your lives.

He will be forever remembered by all who knew him...here

And thank you for that lovely Irish prayer.. it's most fitting for such a regal dog.

Run Free Sheanor.. enjoy the friends and family... keep your spirit close by. sheanor2.jpg[/img]


Maxine and all the farm folks

What a beautiful tribute to such a very special boy. You gave Shane the joy of retirement and the hardest gift we can ever give our hounds, the gift of letting go with dignity, grace and most importantly love.


It will be hard walking into yur home without Shane pushing through your pack with his pet me pet me first way.


I am here for you my friend ~


Run with the angels Sweet Shane, you are with the very very best ~

Dear Paul and Anthony, I am so very sorry for your loss. Though you knew it was coming it does not make it any easier. I am very greytful that you gave him the best home he could have. He could not have found better. You spoiled him and gave him the best of everything.


My heart hurts for the pain the two of you are feeling right now.


My deepest sympathy and condolences.
