After the thoughtful and much appreciated comments in my "Some help for Rupert" thread, I thought I would introduce some of you to our special son. As I work on the net I needed something to help me cope in my own way with his loss, so I started to build a site in his memory. If the admins of this forum don't mind I would like to share that link so we can share our baby with you all.

Rupert was our child, he was the centre of our lives, and very much a boxer through and through. What every mischief he could get up to, he would. And with style! Beneath it all was an endless reserve of unconditional love, especially for his mom who he worshipped. It's very hard to write about my boy just now, and I know this is a poor description of such an amazing, if short, life. I hope we can share much more through his site over time.

Ruperts energy was matched only by his love of over-eating and sleeping. His drive to give love cannot be pointed out any clearer than, when waiting on the table to be put to sleep, his heart failing, and his lungs filling with fluid, that when he saw us next to him he pulled his head from the oxygen hood, wagged his stubby little tail at hyperspeed and tried to climb off the table as if to come home. The last thing he knew was his mom and dad kissing him and telling him how wonderful he is. And he loved it. He then went to sleep and our hearts broke.

We love you so much Rupert and this home is so empty without you.

Your tribute brought tears to my eyes.  We lost two of our babies within three months of each other so I know how hard it is to fill the void they leave.  What a wonderful boy your Rupert was.  He was a very handsome boy.

Poor Rupert and poor you.  Do you have a link to your site?   I see you've edited your post twice, so hopefully no-one made you remove the link, but if so, can you PM it to me?  I'd love to see more of Rupert.

I am sorry for your loss...I  give a lot of credit to those who have the compassion to put their beloved pet to sleep when it is what is best for them. I dread the day....i was extremely lucky with my last love in that she was in no pain while ill and we were told that we could just let her go when she wanted too...she died peacefully laying in the sunshine outside.  I wish this could be the case with all pets and I honor you for helping your boy through the process.
