Jonnie

(Hundon)

Dear Jonnie was killed on Monday 28.11.11. He was a Border Terrier and he was just 7 years old. A house guest let him out and didn't think to get him back inside. He went to the top of the drive and a speeding car hit him - in a 20 mph limit area.

Jonnie was so giving and affectionate. Most people play and stroke their pets, but Jonnie gave as much as he got - climbing into your lap and rolling over, paws in the air with a big smile on his face as you tickled his little tummy, making uh-uh-uh noises. Just brimful of love and joy. He was a merry little soul.

I remember when we introduced a kitten into the household. We were a little worried as Jonnie seemed to have mistaken it for a rat (he was a great ratter). He licked his lips and definitely wanted to engage with it.

But later we found them both curled up together in Jonnie's bed with him tenderly licking the little kitten and making her feel at home on her first night.

It's a few days later at 4 am and I just can't believe he's gone. How a creature so full of life can be snuffed out in an instant... it's very hard.

I must pay tribute to this wonderful dog. Small in stature but huge in both his own and our minds. He always thought he was a big dog and he was right.
