He once brought a fully sized pigeon into the house! We had to take it over to the vet in a cornflake box to get it put to sleep!
Comments from the owner:
Kobe loved to sit in the window & look out, watching the world go by. He was a grumpy old man really. He knew he was handsome and he played on it! He refused to use the cat flap to go out, he'd cry by the door to go out and would only use it to come back in. He liked to spend time in our neighbours garden. It had lots of grass and he could find good hiding spots there.

Wanting to eat sheep poo!
Comments from the owner:
Ruby was the weakest of her litter & needed extra support to make it but her breeder did an amazing job & she was eventually gifted to us by our daughter...making her way from the South up to the North. Ruby melted everyone's hearts & she was the most gentle of souls who loved her pack of humans & her small circle of doggy friends. Typical TT she hated to be alone & she rarely was. She had a blanket that was as old as her that she sucked on to go to sleep and it got dragged everywhere. Ruby was prone to allergies but once off chicken the Apoquel was ditched and the itching went. Ruby loved a tummy tickle and being snuggled but hated having her teeth brushed. She loved car journeys and her pram as long walks became difficult. Ruby was a little girl with a huge personality- a comic, a princess, a snuggler, a healer but most of all our bestie. We miss her so much ❤️

Naughtiest trait:

Comments from the owner:
Zac was an absolute beast of a dog.. people would cross the street as we walked by. But he was the biggest Teddy bear that walked the planet. He was a stud dog for the first 4 years of his life. At age 2, his owner got COVID, lost a lung and had to re home Zac due to ill health. My son and I went to view him, and the rest is history. It took him a while to settle, but once he did, he became the biggest luv bug and adored the grandchildren and all the friends of my older sons. My autistic son grew confidence around him and they were often seen walking the fields of Wycoler and Noyna rocks in Foulridge Lancashire. He was an amazing energy.. calm, loving and full of fun. We will miss this big Floof for the rest of our days. May he go on to inspire people and help them learn about the love of life itself.

Naughtiest trait:
Stubbornness when he didn’t want to do something
Comments from the owner:
A quiet thoughtful loving personality loved by all he met. His ears were always a talking point. My special boy ‘ OLLIE POPS ‘ was an adopted dog from RSPSA aged 4 yrs. The day I met him he was a lost soul, very anxious and almost hairless due to matted fur with sores all over his body. He looked so sad and did not look at me. He stole my heart and I knew that we would both be okay . He did take almost a year to build a trust and the first time he looked me in the eyes we hugged and I promised I would look after him. The bonding could commence. He proved to be an intelligent, caring, sensitive dog who was a routine man who gave love on his terms. He loved a cosy comfortable bed and to have my presence near. Yes he was a bit needy but having had many health problems over the years he was quite independent and uncomplaining. He just enjoyed his life and all adventures to the full. He was a lovable character and liked by all he met both people and dogs. We were both very fortunate to have found each other on 25/07/2011 and lucky to have had 12 wonderful years together. Ollie was 16yrs old at the time of his death, he will always be in my heart with all the wonderful memories he left for me. I hope that the gift of Ollie will help you all to learn the skills required in your chosen career as vets who will care for future animals. I’m confident my Ollie would have approved. Take care of my Ollie.

He was loved by many - his mum, Maria and other mummy, Caroline, his granny, Mary and Dad, Ed and his special aunties - Erika, April, Linda and Mags. His love will live on in all of our hearts and we miss him truly.

Skye was such a cheeky character, she wasn't so much as naughty but definitely cheeky she laid in between my legs once having a cuddle on the couch with me (mummy) and because I wouldn't share my chocolates she decided to flip the whole box on the floor. I couldn't do anything but laugh. Everyone that met skye would fall in love with her, she truly was the best, she was here before I had both of my boys and never did she do anything wrong like being jealous or anything. She adapted and just had more love to share between us all. She loved the sun and loved to sunbathe. She was simply the best..

Climbing up high on everything, not coming in from the yard when it started raining, sleeping on mum’s research whilst she was trying to study for a PhD. Need I go on??
Comments from the owner:
Jackie Fang was like no other cat and I’ve had many over the years. He was adopted from cats protection in 2021 aged 9 after his elderly owner died and he changed my life in so many ways. He got me through the best and worst times of life & made me laugh every single day. From his obsession with lying upside down with his ‘rabbit paws’ sticking in the air, to racing down the stairs & greeting me from work every night, getting under the duvet with me at bedtime, knocking everything over that wasn’t fixed down and having the best cat fangs I’ve ever seen; he was more than one in a million. He was a true saviour & warrior. He fought the bravest battle against lymphangiosarcoma for 6 months but I do hope his death won’t be in vain and that he can help future vets to understand a little bit more about this rare cancer. Jackie, you’ll never be forgotten. All my love always my beautiful boy. Mummy xx

Comments from the owner:
Loki was the centre of our house - by far the most talkative of our cats and loved by us all. He was incredibly bonded with his human Dad after he rescued him from the canal as a tiny kitten. His best cat friend was Nari, another rescue who we named because it meant 'son of Loki' in Norse mythology. This couldn't have been more true of their relationship and Nari is now lost without him. He was the best boy who gave the best snuggles (on his terms) and we miss him enormously.

Comments from the owner:
Zola was such a special girl, she was so calm and sweet, she knew her limits with her heart/breathing issues and would play calmly, if she did get the zoomys she would come to me while she struggled to regulate her breathing and for some reassurance immediately afterwards! In her short 7 months she has had such a massive effect on us, we miss her everyday! I find some comfort that she can now in her death help cats in the future. She was so special she had anyone falling in love with her at first glimpse. For such a small girl she has made a huge impact.
Mollie the Springer x Collie%

Mollie the Springer x Collie

Comments from the owner:
Mollie was our best mate, which sounds strange to say about a pet, but since losing her I’ve learned it’s okay to say that because it was true. I remember the first day we met her as a puppy, immediately throwing herself upon me to say hello, waiting for belly rubs and love. She gave us more love than we could ever return; her excitement and energy was endless, right up until her final days. She was everyone’s best friend and she changed our lives – she was a comfort through days of stress, and a bundle of joy in the happy days. She sat beside Chris through two degrees, and beside Becca through two and a half, enjoying nothing more than plonking her nose on the corner of a warm laptop – usually just as you were about to type something important. We’ll miss her cheekiness, her happiness, and her warmth so much, but that we can gift her to you is another gift of her life. Take care of her for us.

Teddy the Crossbreed

Comments from the owner:
Teddy was 16yrs old, but I only had him for 3 years, and he was in kennels for 7yrs before I took him home. With Teddy I learned how to love a dog, and Teddy learned to trust and love a human mummy. His biggest passions in life were - walkies, squeaky toys, which had to be killed immediately, and, of course, food. Although he wasn't very people orientated, he did love running around with family children. Teddy has been such a good boy, so gentle and patient, quick to learn. Since he became ill, he just wanted to be near me, so it was very hard to part with him, but I am comforted by knowing that in his next journey he will be helping vets learn to help others like him.

Marley was a shy boy but on his own with me he would come out of his shell and give me special cuddles where he would sit on my lap and rest his head under my chin I hope you're flying high my beautiful boy we miss you more than words can explain.

Comments from the owner:
Tyler came to us from a rescue at the age of 16 months, it became apparent the minute he arrived that he was a big soft baby who just wanted to be loved. Tyler loved to go on caravan holidays and drag his dad to the beach so he could run at the waves and bite them. He loved all his human brothers - Joey, Thomas, and Lewis and when Tyler became a little slow we introduced Dexter the puppy who Tyler loved and played with. Tyler loved to play in the snow, not that we got much, and he loved to chase the rain falling from the sky. He will be forever remembered and loved always. The day we had to let you go broke all our hearts. We hope you're now pain free and able to run for miles like you used to as a puppy. All our love forever and a day from mum, dad, Joey, Thomas, Lewis and Dexter xxxx

Comments from the owner:
Carrie was bought for me by my parents when I moved out and it wasn't fair to take my dog from her friends. She was what we called a 'working pet', she wasn't as trained as a professional working dog, but loved going to local shoots working. She carried on until 11 years of age, when she would do the last drive and come in for a sleep. Her favourite thing was getting the dummy out for her to 'train' with the younger dogs. Her mobility in her elbow was quite poor, but she would pick up a 5 metre retrieve like you'd asked her to run 2 fields. She was and always will be incredibly loved by a family who is absolutely lost without her, but if she can help someone even after she's left us it will be one more wonderful thing she has done in her life.

Favourite Treat:

Comments from the owner:
My girl Bella was adopted from a rescue centre 14 years ago when I sadly lost my own daughter at birth, Bella got me though my worst days and has been my absolute best friend ever since day one. Bella never once barked after she was unfortunately treated badly in her first year of life. About 9 years ago she saved my nephews life. My sister had come to visit with my twin nephews, and they were asleep upstairs while we watched x factor down stairs when suddenly Bella started running up and down stairs crying, so my sister went to check and my nephew wasn't breathing after vomiting and choking on it, his lips were blue but thanks to Bella, he was absolutely fine. I have countless memories of my girl and I know most people say pets are like family but to me Bella was my child - I loved her no different and as a family we are so completely lost and broken without her. As my girl fell asleep for the final time I sang our song, you've got a friend in me (toy story). I hope Bella can help your team and be remembered by others as well as family.

Comments from the owner:
Denver was so loved, he was my everything, not a day goes by that I don't miss him. Denver was a rescue dog, he was a very pleasant little fella, when my grandson came along they clicked, it was like Denver was my grandsons guardian angel. Denver came at the right time for me and my family, my 2 youngest girls were finding things really hard during lockdown as they'd lost both grandparents within 3 months of each other, one of my girls couldn't cope and tried to end her own life, then Denver came into our lives and our lives turned around. My girls both fell in love instantly and so did our boy Denver, they went out on walks everyday, they went on drives, to the beach and for ever sunbathing in the summer, they even arranged a birthday party for him which he loved because it was a barbecue. Denver was the life and soul of our home and a very special boy, he was our friend and our baby. We have pictures all over the house of him and my daughters both have his paw prints tattooed on them. Denver’s death is still heart breaking to us that's probably why it has taken so long to write this about him, he will always be in our hearts and always be our special boy, we miss him so much the love we have for him and all the love he gave us, I will always be forever grateful for every second we got to be with him. Until we meet again sleep tight little boy, my sweetheart♥️♥️♥️

Percy was the absolute light of my life. I rescued him at 12 weeks and he instantly became a huge part of my life. We spent a lot of time training him and he was so clever and loved to learn. He could play fetch and his favourite thing to play with was a ball of foil. Cats are meant to be scared of foil so I used it to cover my kitchen counters to deter him from jumping up. One day I came home to find the foil ripped to shreds all over the floor, he was having the time of his life playing with it. He was so loving and always would tell me when he wanted to cuddle. We would spend hours cuddling and playing, he was such a happy boy. Although he was only with me for a year, it was the best year and I am so glad I brought him into my life. I hope wherever he is now, he has plenty of foil to play with
Narla the Boxer%

Narla the Boxer

Comments from the owner:
Narla was a wonderful part of our family for eight years. She was the sweetest, most loving dog and gave the best cuddles and sloppy kisses, especially to all the children in our families. She loved her walks and would sulk until she was taken out. Narla would always chase those pesky cats and even saying 'cats' would wind her up. She was the best big sister to our four year old Charlie and little sister to our fourteen year old Aston, even if she did steal their food now and again. Her favourite thing to do was zoomies all around the house and garden, even at 1am in the morning when we were all asleep. Throwing her biscuits around was her favourite game to play. She took part in many charity runs with her Mummy and even climbed a mountain! She has definitely left her paw print on all of hearts and no one could ever replace her, our special Pupper Dawg ♥️

Comments from the owner:
Simba was a stray cat for at least 8 years in the area, after his original owner excluded him from the house. He had several neighbours look after him but when his fur got so matted, it was time to call the RSPCA. Not long after, we adopted him and he had the most amazing 6 years with us, being spoilt, cared for and loved. Simba never liked to be picked up or his belly being touched, meaning he got regular lion cuts. He would nip to tell you he didn't like it but never to cause pain, just to set boundaries. He was regularly referred to as feisty and spicy by the vets and nurses.

He was so sociable to all other dogs and appalled if a dog snarled at him, he couldn't understand how another dog could be so rude. He shared everything, except stones, with his buddy, Beau. They slept together, ate together, played together. Poor Beau is now bereft, as are we. Dexter was so brave, he had both cruciate operated on 8 weeks apart but never limped at all. Stoic to the end. I hope someone learns something from him. Goodbye our Clown Prince.

Mabel the Ginger Moggy

Favourite place to snooze:
Mabel loved to lie in the Sunshine, she would sleep outside or on one of our beds upstairs. She loved to cuddle up with us on the bed and sleep, especially up against us.
Favourite Toy:
She did not really have a toy, but obviously liked toys with cat nip inside and when she was younger she did run after balls and ribbons. She did like to catch mice and bring them in and for some reason she had an obsession of bringing in leaves during the autumn and letting us know they were there during the night.
Favourite Treat:
Butter was her favourite treat.
Favourite Person:
She didn't really have a favourite member of the family.
Naughtiest trait:
Mabel was a real talker, she would love to chat with us. Due to her accident when she was just 6 months, she got run over and broke her hip with spinal shock, she would be incintienet of urine, especially when asleep which was a real nuisance as we did a lot of cleaning up after her.
Comments from the owner:
Mabel was a very affectionate cat, she used to sit on our laps and sleep, she would often chat away to us and we all loved her very much. She deteriorated very quickly and it was a shock to us all when we realised she was so poorly. We all miss her a lot but her brother, Billy, is still with us fitting fit.

Polly the Greyhound%

Polly the Greyhound

Comments from the owner:
A Priceless Gift has brought me much comfort. Thank you. The vet asked me to send a quick profile about my puppy so here goes: I was 12 years, 2 weeks and 6 days old when I went to sleep in a beautiful garden. Everyone I ever knew called me 'Smiler', I had 356 different smiles! Sometimes I fluttered my eye lashes at Denzil. I liked chasing helicopters. I hated the rain and sunk instead of swimming. I am not waterproof and need to be wrung out like a sponge if I get wet. I wasn't very good at coming back when I was told. I was a naughty thief and quite greedy! My favourite games (with Annabel) were 'Feet' (stuffing all my feet in my mouth at once, tail too while I wriggled on my back laughing) and 'Snappy Face'! (Which I also thought was hilarious). My favourite game (with Denz) was 'Tuggy' when I used to go crazy. I hated all cats (except a little black one called Giblem). I hope I can help other puppies. Thanks again.

Coco the Cat

Comments from the owner:
Coco arrived at our house with her brother, at the time she was a shy, reserved kitten. As she was many shades of chocolate, she was given a chocolate themed name. Once Coco came out of her shell, she was a true tortoise, she did not engage with me for about 6 months after our youngest was born and didn’t want anything to do with the youngest for about 6 years. You always knew when she had had enough petting, by a well placed nip Coco was definitely the boss of our multi-cat household and when our rescue dog (lab X) joined the family 5 years ago, Coco quickly showed her who the boss was. This was repeated on the arrival at of our second dog, a lab, and with all the dogs who came round for play dates or to stay over.

Cooper the Labrador%

Cooper the Labrador

Comments from the owner:
This is the gorgeous Cooper, affectionately known as Coopey-poop. After a bit of a shady unknown start in life he came to live with us and has enjoyed months of being a loved part of our family. Cooper enjoyed going to the beach, although he was terrified of the water! He loved playing with his enrichment toys and going for long walks with his football. Unfortunately Cooper’s behaviour issues became too much and he didn’t seem to know himself at times anymore. The decision was sadly made to put him to sleep but he will be greatly missed.
