Celebrating Jasper

Every schnauzer is uniquely special, schnauzer folk know that. I'm so terribly sorry for the loss that many of you are also feeling. Jasper was my world. He sat by me and comforted me through life changes, career changes, my children growing up and leaving home, everything. He was even looking after me right until the last breath that he took in my arms at home in our favourite chair. Just the two of us, like any other day.

We lived, worked, played and loved together as a team. He was an outstanding communitarian and is loved and missed by many - he left us way too soon but left wonderful memories to nurture us. As Nanny said, it's the end of an era, we've lost a true legend. The following is taken from his memorial. I love you Jasper. Thank you for everything xxx

What a moving tribute to a well loved friend. Indeed, dogs stay for far too short a time. By the time we leave this world our hearts should be all dog, if we are lucky.

What a wonderful tribute to Jasper. I too have a schnauzer who is a therapy dog and agree with everything in Jasper's tribute. The loss is great but the memories continue for a lifetime.

What a beautiful tribute. I have lost many a beloved pet and it is like losing your best friend because they are with you through everything regardless of circumstances.
