Went to Rainbow Bridge 15 March 2011
A TRIBUTE FROM SANDIE
Today Rainbow Bridge received another angel - my beautiful Isabelle who came to me nine and half years ago from Ashton Pound after being picked up roaming the streets with her puppy. She enjoyed a wonderful life although never enjoyed the best of health, having had numerous operations. She was a gyneacological wreck, regularly taking up residence in the wardrobe where she'd nest. She'd collect all the remote controls and phones in the house and take them in there and god help me if I tried to retrieve them or if any of the other dogs tried to enter the room. She was such a character in every way, loved men, would abandon me as soon as a man walked into the house - Leroy was the love of her life. She ruled the dogs with an iron rod, especially the numerous foster dogs who have stayed here over the years. Now who is going to keep all those retrievers in check??
My lovely Isabelle was one of a kind, she brightened my life immensely and was a loyal and faithful friend and companion. She will be greatly missed, not only by me but by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her and succumbing to her many charms.
Fly with the angels sweet Isabelle.
ISABELLE - A POEM BY WENDY
Dumped in a pound, frightened and scared,
you took me in to your home and your love I shared.
I loved all the dogs and fosters too,
I had such an awful life until you found me,
I loved cuddling up with all the dogs and you,
I had phantom pregnancies when I came to you,
I had an operation on my eye too,
You have shown me so much love and kindness too,
Nothing was too much trouble and you always did your best,
I will always stay very close to you,
I will be just a whisper away,
I will walk in the footsteps of IRR dogs that have passed by,
The Angels came looking for me,
I will never forget all that you have done,
Lots of Love from ‘Little Isabelle’ xxxxxxxxxx
I lost a treasured friend today
Retrieve no more her favourite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called her to his golden throne.
Although my eyes are filled with tears
When it is time for me to go
