    Forgive me for a little self indulgence this evening, am not the best company ATM having lost my best mate. Booey had been with me since 1999 this week and today I lost him. In my mind he will remain, I have fantastic memories of him and many photos but for my own sake I'm post this one..

    Barnee 'Boo' Golden Ausbuhen....

    Oh Kev... I'm so very sorry. Been there, done that, cried buckets and still have nearly 40 pets. You had Booey a long time, you can be grateful for that much (((Kev)))

    Thanks Lesley is nice to have friends around who understand, Booey was a big part of my life, went through so much together, he never questioned and always listened even if he didn't really know WTF i was on about..:D

    I remember taking this, Booey hated having his photog taken he was very compliant but really wasn't happy acting model for the day,he suffered me greatly, he was very self assured, very confident and totally aware, hopefully this catches that...

    Thanks Pete, I had decided to go ground tonight but am glad that I stayed top side, been a crap day/week but sometimes it's best to just keep trying to go on, unless one has had a friend so loyal for so long one really can't get a grip of the pain one feels when one loses such a loyal friend............:(

    One of the main reasons I do not have pets any more. My lifestyle, with all the travel, would not be fair. But mainly because I was so devastated at the loss of my last one that I decided no more. But who knows what the future brings...

  20. How very sad. Words at these times can't make a real difference.
    The portrait you posted suggested confidence and totally alert
    awareness. But, what I see in the eyes, is a truly devoted and
    loving soul, I am very sorry you can be together but the memories
    help later.... much later.
