My beautiful devoted darling who loved her mum more than anyone else. We had to have her put to sleep on Tuesday, 20 years old with too much cancer pain. My heart was breaking. My 19 year old son sobbing.
A little Pom crossed with a Chihuahua. What a beautiful girl, gutsy, the boss of the house, who had battled cancer and a serious heart condition and kept going for years.
Our house seems so empty and my heart has a physical pain I miss her so much. No more little face at the front door glass when I come home, her little nose prints still there and I won't clean them off.
What will I do without you, mummy's lovey girl. So much love given, how lucky we were darling girl. I know that you will be there waiting when I come and in the meantime please help us old girl. We don't know what to do without you.
Mummy knows that you will send another furry love to us, who will need us when it's right, but I just want you. I can never thank you enough, my lovey, for all the love over all this time. I love you so much, my Little Tess.
All my love, Mum (Karen, Victoria, Australia)
