I got some very sad news from Haven yesterday, that Charles and Caroline’s beloved dog Brutus had, after a period of decline, finally crossed Rainbow Bridge.
Brutus is the dog who really converted me to dogs and made me think that one day, in the right place and at the right time, I would want such a personable and loyal companion. He was such a sweet soul and a grumpy old boy. I knew that when I cuddled him for the last time before leaving in April that it would be the last time. I’m glad that we got that final week together. It was so very special to get up in the morning and sit by the fire with him and Charles and have my coffee.
Here is Brutus in August 2014, when he was still in his prime.
Brutus, you were well loved and will be sorely missed. Thank you for making our lives a little brighter.
Charles and Caroline, I’m sending hugs across the vast distance that separates us. Far in body, close in spirit. Love you both.
