Jasper 16/03/1991 - 05/06/2008

Our beloved dog and companion for 17 years passed away while we were away. My mum was "dog sitting" him , we knew the day was coming too quickly and he wasnt well. Mum had given him a dinner of sausages and vegetables ( turned his nose up at tin food ! ) then she thought he would like a small bit of ice-cream - he loved it.

Later that night he curled up on mums knee and passed peacefully. It was so sad and the children are handling it well. we think it was better we were away as they didnt have to see him go .... both are still teary.

We got home at 2.30am this morning and they wanted to go outside and see his grave - a bit dark so we suggested in the morning when they wake up.

Mum had brought a small flowering plant for him and also put a cup where we can place flowers and a jar with a beautiful poem in it . The children thought that was wonderful.

Sleep peacefully Per, we love you xxxxxxxx

I'm so sorry for the loss of Jasper. But it seems like he had a long and happy life. And he'll be waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for you.
