22-04-2015 we took you into our heart at Eindhoven airport, today 09-08-2017 you looked at us: 'owners, it it enough... let me go'. Letting you go, out of love... we would have loved to give you so much more years here with us, but it is over. The last 2.5 years you got to enjoy your senior years here with us. You got to feel how it is to be loved by a whole family! We will miss your cuddles.... bye sweet Bongo xxx
Today I had to let my little boy pass away. He was falling on his little head constantly and his hind legs were very weak. The vet thinks that he suffered from glandular cancer because he had difficulty swallowing and eating.
We had been very careful with the measuring and removal of the mammary gland tumors. It was a bitter disappointment when we were told, after the hospitalization, that the cancer had spread to her lungs. The prognosis was that my little girl had only 2 months to live. Because Pimpinella was such a sweet, cheerful dog full of vitality and resiliency, we have done everything, together with a holistic doctor, to keep Pimpinella happy and pain free for as long as possible! After her past in Spain, she deserved nothing less!
In the beginning of 2014 we had 2 dogs, Sugar and Ticky from Turkey, both were about the same age. In May, Ticky died about 15 years old. We decided to take a new dog, preferable another Cocker Spaniel. We had found the ACE/SHIN website.
Manou I will always remember with beautiful memories, the years you have given me, if only you could have stayed a few years longer. But unfortunately after the second cerebral hemorrhage there was no option left, you don’t want to live like a plant!
On July 28th, 2014, our little girl has died. Frannike had been sick for about 2 weeks and had fluids around her heart. During the 2 weeks, Franneke had visited the vet several times. She had been given medication to remove the fluids but they didn't works. We had decided to go to Diepenbeek for an echo graphy. After the examination and echo ( we were with her the whole time) the result was there. Frannike was suffering from cancer with metastasis. Her spleen was full of the cancer. The little girl had been so good and quiet during the whole examination. Unfortunately there was nothing that could be done. She quietly died in our arms.
With sadness I want to inform you about the sudden death of my girl Hope (named Kruimeltje at ACE). During the night she suffered from diarrhea, vomiting and then she slept till half past 10.
Unfortunately our sweet Magoo has died after 5,5 years. During those 5,5 years he has enjoyed Noordwijk with it’s beach, dunes and the sea. We have enjoyed each other very much and we will miss our little Spanish doggie terribly.
You came to live with us in 2009. At the ACE website your name was Fernandito but that name didn’t suit you and we named you Lowie. It took some time before you felt at home, you destroyed a few pieces of furniture but in the end everything was fine. You became our most faithful friend who protected his boss with his life and for our son Victor you were the audience for hours when he was playing.
Fabbeke, when you were 4 months old, you came into foster care with us. We gave you the name Fabbeke as a tribute to Fabienne. After 2 failed adoptions we decided that you would stay with us.
I tell you this besauce I know that I can´t talk about her without crying my eyes off. She was only one of my 4 boxers who was sleeping always on my side. Always next to me where ever I was...and now that place is empty....I love all my dogs but you know that every soul is different...and I miss my Nuca so deeply that it really hurts a lot.
We wish to inform you that, this night, Tina (before Martina) is gone from us. So suddenly we did not expected; we knew she was not going to overcome the winter, but now, so suddenly gone from us very early ...
Nona has been put asleep, my brave girl, came blind to me years ago in foster, with her strong character she gained her place among all large dogs. Everywhere she followed me without leash, two years ago she became deaf, it did not matter, every day she sauntered loose during her one hour walk in the forest, knew the way, she enjoyed it.
Luna, alias Setta with her little heart and so afraid of people, could go to a great home in the Netherlands, unfortunately she died suddenly, after her owners moved heaven and earth to save her. .. . MUCH TOO YOUNG SHE WENT FROM US ...
Luna was anxious and always on her guard. Every day she had to overcome her fear. But she grew, every day she managed to be surprised us with a positive change. Her world became increasingly familiar and she was my buddy and went out every night with me to work. The loss is enormous and the emptiness she leaves is painful.
Sending this mail completes the circle and I have to accept that she's gone.

No words we can find for the lost of a lovely sweet Mummy podenca who finally fined her new home, who finally discovered that we "HUMANS" can be so different from each other, years and years she was something who did not had any value but producing and hanging on a chain,..
