My biological family

My mum was cruising the internet, as she does, and happened upon some photos of me that we had never seen before.  Needless to say she was beside herself with joy and I thought it was worth breaking into my busy schedule at the bridge to share them with you.

Here I am at 3 weeks old with my brothers and sisters….

It also has links to when I was 4 and 5 weeks old but only problem is……..  even I’m not sure which one is me :).

There are also photos of my biological mum and dad.

My stepdad never knew me until I was a fully grown adult and he was in awe of these photos of me and my siblings so wrote this very touching letter to friends along with the photos (I knew I left mum in good hands with this man).

“Dogs are like some rock n’ rollers. They manage to squeeze much into a brief life span.

 They remind us of the qualities we often forget. Loyalty, eternal curiosity, child like awe of our surroundings, a love of life and the ability to take a day at a time (and make the most of it.) Most importantly they teach us that life should be fun and that we shouldn’t stand on ceremony. 

Dogs depart oh so soon leaving us with great memories and such sadness. The pictures show a bunch of lovable rascals about to unleash joy and mischief on the world. Alas, the family is likely to be no more.

Magnum was the most cunning of the group. Knowing that she couldn’t compete with her siblings she feigned sleep and pounced on desired objects when no one was interested. She did the same when planning to purloin my socks….”

Hugs and kisses, love

About princess

Almost 10 year old loyal and courageous rottie! 30 May 2002 to 5 May 2012 Lost her leg to osteosarcoma on 1st Sep 2011 and did 6 rounds of chemo with carboplatin. 3 lung mets found in Mar 2012 and 1 month of Palladia done before it was stopped due to GI issues. But it was metastasis to the back right hip that finally took our little girl on 5th May 2012. She was happy, contented, relaxed and very loved when she peacefully slipped away in her mum's loving arms.

    Wow, that must have really been a surprise to you. What an elegant name, is that how you came to call her Princess?

    Hi Kathy, yes, it was a huge surprise. I felt liked I’d won the lottery! The breeders pet name for her was Princess. I’m not sure why they called her that but it certainly matched her official name.

  3. How great to find those pics. She was adorable!

    Great letter! It says it all.

    Awwww, that is one pretty puppy! Wow. What a neat thing to find, it must have made your Mum’s heart stop.

    Magnum, you have always been such a beautiful pup, and you always will be. May your memory live on forever on the interwebs and in our hearts.

    I love the letter too. Beautiful!
