    We lost our JR Chippie in 1978 and I still have her collar, lead and name tag, I out them in a draw when we got home from her last visit to the vets and they have been with me ever since.

    You'll never forget her, Colliebarmy. That's what real love means.

    I have to admit that I think more about the dog than my mum who passed away 3 years ago

    I have locks of hair, tags and collars for most of my dearly departeds.
    Seems natural to me to keep them.

    Id have probably taken a clip of fur but you dont always think straight, she died having a seizure in my arms at 3am, in the kids bedroom, the wife took the kids downstairs and shut the door to spare them, when the dog had passed i was on the stairs and the wife called me "come in here, dont be alone", i said i wasnt alone, i had the dog on my lap, then the vat came and took her away, which ive regretted since as we hadnt thought about what to do with her.

    That's too sad.

    don't think too much on the after, she passed with you holding her- all that matters
