    Shane our darling boy you loved everyone and greeted anyone you saw with a wagging tail . You had the gentlest soul I have ever known in a dog. As hard as it was I was honored to be with you when you left this world. I held you in my arms as you died and though it was the most heartbreaking thing to do, I am so glad you gave me the courage to do it.

    R.I.P darling x

    So sorry. You're description of Shane sounds just like my boy Dennis who left for Rainbow Bridge last year. The day after he died I came across this poem, I hope it helps you as it did me:-

    I NEVER WENT AWAY

    I stood by you're bed last night
    I came to have a peep
    I could see that you were crying
    You found it hard to sleep.

    I whined to you softly
    As you brushed away a tear
    It's "me" I haven't left you
    I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here.

    I was with you at the shops today
    Your arms were getting sore
    I longed to take your parcels
    I wish I could do more.

    I was with you at my grave today
    You tend it with such care
    I want to reassure you
    That I am not lying there.

    I walked with you towards the house
    As you fumbled for the key
    I gently put my paw on you
    I smiled and said "it's me".

    You looked so very tired
    As you sank into a chair
    I tried so hard to let you know
    That I was standing there.

    Its possible for me
    To be so near everyday
    To say to you with certainty
    "I never went away".

    You sat there very quietly
    Then smiled like you knew
    In the stillness of the evening
    I was very close to you.

    The day is over
    I smile at you yawning
    And say good night, god bless
    I'll see you in the morning.

    And when the time is right for you
    To cross the brief divide
    I'll rush across to meet you
    And we'll stand side by side.

    I have so many things to show you
    There is so much for you to see
    Be patient, live your journey out
    Then come home to live with me.

    So sorry for your loss, he looked and sounded like a lovely lad, I wish I could say something to make you feel better, I lost my lovely boy Chance last year and although it won't feel like it now it does get better with time.

    It breaks your heart when you lose your beloved pet.
    When I lost my Bruno I was inconsolable.
    I feel for you all.

    This is a poem I wrote in tribute to Bruno.

    There's an empty place beside me where my best friend used to lie.
    But now he's running freely above the bright blue sky.
    His legs no longer bother him arthritis pain is gone.
    He can run just like a puppy,
    but I feel so alone.

    I miss you Bruno my best mate, I miss your funny ways.
    The way you peeped under the gate,
    long walks on sunny days.

    I miss your lovely staffie smile, your toys around the floor.
    I miss your little waggy tail when I come through the door.
    But I know that you're at peace now no more pain to bother you.
    and I've lots of happy memories that I know will see me through.

    I lost Bruno 2 1/2 yrs ago and I still miss him.

    RIP Bruno.

    And all the other pets at rainbow bridge.
