RIP Timmy

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 24 October 2013 | 9 Comments


I adopted a beautiful black & white kelpie x Timmy 3 yrs ago when he was about 18 months old.


He fit into my family so well, & quickly learnt the words coffee (snack time) & dinner. He became a regular at the dog beach, even refusing to leave a few times & leaving me to carry him all the way across the sand to the car (with a lot of odd looks from others).

He was loved by all he came into contact with & thought every minute was playtime/rub his belly time. We did everything we could together & he had his sad puppy face ready whenever I had to leave the house without him. The greetings he gave me when I got home always where the highlights of my day.

Unfortunately he passed away suddenly last night from an unknown trauma that collapsed his lungs. He will be missed so very much.


Thankyou for looking after him & allowing me to adopt him. I had the best 3 yrs with him.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss Caitlin, but please take comfort in the fact that you gave him an amazing three years. He experienced more love and fun in his short time than some dogs do in a lifetime. Thank you for adopting him.
