Darren, Emma, Kasey & Chloe’s tribute to their beloved Diesel:
2nd September is now called ‘Diesel Day’ for us. It was with great sadness that we had to put our beloved campaign to rest, however Alicia made what was always going to be a tough day a very peaceful and memorable moment for us all.
It was up north at Hervey Bay that your journey begun
Enjoying the good life in the sun you always had fun
You loved the boat and fishing out at sea
Always eating the bait as if it was your tea
Cruising in the front of the four wheel drive
Your new home in Victoria was where you arrived
Listening to country music & cruising in the ute was what you and Dad did best
Not to mention camping, swimming, 4wdriving and the rest
Your love for the water proved that swimming was what you always wanted to do
Whether it was the river or the beach you'd always be diving for a stick or two
You took on a new friend with Jet Boy showing him all the tricks of the trade
Taking it all in your stride a special friendship was made
You stole the hearts of Kasey and Chloe very quickly becoming their best friend
It is with great sadness that today this friendship has to come to an end
Your nature and loyalty to us all earnt your second name “woofy”
You really turned out the best friend to us all that could be
A hole in our hearts you will certainly leave behind
But we will always have our memories you gave us over our time
We couldn't of asked for a better a best mate
After all the good years, we will never forget this date
Rest in peace Woofy
Remembering Bear – A tribute to a cherished boy
The CP Team deals with pet loss often, and we feel the loss every single time. One of our very cherished patients recently lost his life after a short battle with cancer. His person, Penny, is one of our dedicated volunteers, who has prepared this tribute to share.
Penny’s tribute to Bear:
"On the 30th June I lost my beautiful boy Bear, my one and only pet - I adored him.
He has such a lovely nature and loved people and other dogs. Through him, I met so many lovely people and made quite a few lasting friendships. He lived and loved life to the full with so much energy right up until his last day. Chasing his ball and going to the beach were his favourite pastimes, besides food.
We had so much fun together and he made every day special. I have wonderful memories of the life he shared with me and the great times we had - just he and me.
Bear, you were my life, my love and my heart will always be with you. RIP my beautiful boy until we are together again". 💕
We were so terribly saddened by the passing of dear Bear, who will remain one of our favourites always. Our love and thoughts are with Penny through this difficult time.
