Guinness here. We lost our dear friend Tavish. She was Gramps and Grams faithful companion. She was very old. Everyone who met her fell in love with her.

She was soft and gentle. You can just tell that in her sweet face. She had the best life that any dog could ever want.

So we must be sad a little, but mostly happy for the goodness she brought to our lives. There is a new little human pup on the way any day now--over in Newfoundland. And so Gram and Gramps will be real grandparents now...and a new chapter in our lives will begin...

One life moves on, and another one steps in. It is funny how that is. But Tavish hasn't really left. Our memories of her and the joy she brought stay with us, and we carry that love in our hearts. She is part of us forever and so she lives on within us.
i am sure one night i will find the place
of your kind, brown eyes and your gentle face,
Where the wild wind is born and there you will be,
and nothing has changed as you run to me.
...and i shall forget how long was the way
and we'll both be young, as we were one day...


  1. We will light a candle for Tavish and wish her a safe journey to the Rainbow Bridge.

  2. We know you'll miss Tavish, but you'll have so many memories..she will be there with you.

  3. We can't help but want dogs in our lives even though they are with us for such a short time.

  4. The memories of Doggie times, are the best!! Without a dog, I am nothing!

  5. She was such a wonderful dog, a perfect match for Gramps and Gram and vice versa. I'll miss her rolling over for a tummy rub next time I'm home.
