The Lost Ones

My tribute to little dogs we've known and lost........



I've lost a friend I didn't know

The message came today

Propelled through wires at speed of light

From near or far away.


He left behind a family

And friends to mourn his death

She left behind a wall of tears

As she breathed her last breath.


Computer networks span the globe

And contact now is found

With folks that we may never see

But feel with touch profound.


The dots of light on screen of glass

Shape words of joy or pain

We teach and learn and share our lives

And blessing deep we gain.


So now I sit with sniffling nose

And tears flow down my face

I share a loss and try to find

Pure words of peace and grace.


A dog has died, but more than that

A precious life has passed

We take them in, they bless our lives

Then leave us much too fast.


Please grant us peace and memories long

Our shortlived friends to keep

In stories, images and thoughts

To calm us as we weep.


Now, lightning's brother, speed my words

Through fibres, disks and such

May cold computer magically turn

To caring human touch.


Bob Stewart-24/2/98/



Sweet little Angel came into rescue and Kim tried to save her but had to let her go. She was already blind and had been badly mistreated.....such a sad little life. She wasn't even afforded the courtesy of being named do we named her at the Terrier Club and will never forget her.

Our dearest friend, Tasha the Seawesty July 7th, 2002. She had been very ill, and her parents had done everything possible for her. She died peacefully in her mum's arms, and no doubt raced off to meet Misty, her sister, who went ahead last year.

Dear Ms.Taffy lost her valiant fight yesterday....she had been very ill and her mum Carolyn had done everything she possibly could for her. She'll be sadly missed.

Noodles-October 1992-October 2003

Dear little Patti, Carrie's wee Westie angel, died this morning. She was a beautiful little girl and had real Westie spirit....

Sir Cedric left his brother Casey and mum Theo and bravely went ahead.....he'd been such a trooper through his hospital visits and testings-he amazed us all.

Dear Maxie was only in a super home for less than 2 years which is tragic, as he deserved to be loved all his days. Marie packed plenty into the short time they had together, though. He's sadly missed by her and Regie and Enya, Kellie and Mishy, his sisters, too...

Lady-Aged 18

Dear Lady made it to the ripe age of 18-what a girl !! Carolyn and her family will sorely miss their dear old girl...


Dear little Scruffy went peacefully at home surrounded by love aged 15. He'd had a long illness and had borne it well like the sweet little trouper he was. Very sadly missed and now reunited with his friend Fergie.

Booker 28/5/92-5/3/08

Dear Booker has gone after a short illness....he leaves behind his special friend Hobie the cat and of course his heartbroken mum Sue.

Dear little Enya died today......what a well-loved little soul she was. Her grand age speaks for itself. Each time this wee girl was unwell she fooled us all and rallied once more. Her mum Marie will sorely miss her eldest little doggie but as usual she did right by her and let her go free.....

Towser-June 19th 2008

Dear little Towser was saved by Janie and TW only 8 short months ago. He needed them so much and helped their hearts heal after Mulligan's loss. Such a lovely little foxy-faced boy he was and only needed lots of love. They took him in and took super care of him and sadly lost him when he was found to have cancer of the liver.

Dear Jesse has gone....he had an inoperable tumour which affected him quickly.....such a darling little fella' and Sarah and Matt will miss their little bandit so much as will all his friends and sister Isabella.....

Piper was Ruby Tuesday's and Jack The Lad's Westie cousin and lived in Canada. We got to share many delightful holidays with them all together. He had been ill for some time but you'd never have known ! A wee spirited Westie sadly missed by Pat and Bernie. 

McTavish McCall-16/2/94-6/10/08

Never was a little Westie more loved and now more missed than little Moo. He was a real little fighter and managed to survive chemotherapy and recover only for the dreaded sickness to return. We'd all hoped he'd live a lot longer and enjoy a healthy retirement. He's left behind a broken hearted Peggy and Darrell and his Westie siblings Haggis and Sugar.

Eddie-25/4/02 to 13/7/09

Dear little Eddie "The Chow" just passed after an unknown illness. Tracey's done so much to try and save him and learn what ailed him but nobody could find out in time what it was which is just tragic-he was far too young.

Elliot-22/11/01 to 13/7/09

Dear "Captain" Elliot has gone.......another little Westie face that was taken far too young. This photo illustrates just what a happy and joyful little dog he was..

MacDougal 4/9/93-28/8/09

Sweet MacDougal sadly suffered a massive stroke and has gone just before his 16th birthday. He was obviously well loved and well looked after and will be much missed by Rebecca and Larry

Dear Smookie..MostlyWesties' International Rescue boy sadly passed away last night....Robyn "found" him and Linda took him in and loved him as he'd always deserved to be loved and took the best care of him and all his issues. He was our special poster boy and will always be missed and remembered with a lot of love.


Dear Gracie was a true Golden Girl....adored by her wee Westie sisters Belle, Olivia and Treasure and mum Debbie. She'd been unwell for some time but showed us all what a true fighter she was and how much she wanted to stay. She'll be much missed but now reunited with her little sister Sophie.

Angel 27/3/00-27/1/10

Dear Angel "McGee" was almost 10 but she had a nasty bladder tumour which in turn meant her kidneys failed and sadly she passed in her sleep. She leaves behind her siblings Rolls, Lenny and Charlie who will be lost without their girl and of course her mum Char...
