Happy birthday Danny

Today would've been my little dog Danny's eleventh birthday. He died last September and although it pained me to see him getting old, I still miss him so much. He was such a special boy, so intelligent and sensitive and really was the best first dog I could've wished for. I have so many treasured memories of the things we did together: holidays, training, shows- even just the times spent lazing around the house or in the garden were special.

In August, a few weeks before the last time I saw Dan (he was put to sleep whilst I was on a language course in France), we went down on the train to Battersea Park in London to act as models in a photoshoot for Orange. Danny was impeccably behaved and even though he suffered a bit with the heat, he seemed to enjoy the day too, especially as one of his favourite things in the world used to be travelling on the Tube. I was so proud of my boy that day!

Here are a few photos from the day which my lovely friend Kaye sent me to cheer me up after Danny's passing:

Goodnight Danny, my little star in the sky. I hope you're having a nice birthday- wherever you are!

  2. Aw your sweet pup :(

    Sorry, but I have a small (I think it's small) favor to ask you. I have been having major trouble with my Google Friend Connect gadget on my blog so I removed it all together, yet I keep getting email notifications that awesome people like yourself have joined my blog. If you could just go to my blog (http://ifsandsandbutts.com) and let me know how the heck you signed it, that would be amazing because then I could maybe have a lead or at least a link because I've tried everything and got nothing. Sorry to leave this in the comments but I couldn't find a contact email. Mine is ifsandsandbutts@gmail.com.

    Thanks so much!

  3. This made me tear up a bit. Poor Dan the Man, he was too young to go. He'll always be a very special boy who won't ever be forgotten.
