This page is a tribute to my beloved miniature poodle Shakti who was my dearest friend and my love for 11 1/2 years from March 1989 until 3rd September 2000.
Shakti was a wise soul who came to be with me during my times in the slough of dispair
She was by my side during my marriage breakup - during my times of being very ill and there was a time when Shakti and I had a little home of our own and it was one of the happiest times of my life.
Eventually she became so ill that for the love of her, I needed to have her put to sleep and break my heart in the process
Here are some photo's of her
A tiny baby - this is a very small shoe
This photo was taken when she was just a young person
Playing with me in the snow
Oh how I loved my little one
this one was taken a few days before she died a little old lady, almost completely blind and in terrible pain.
At this stage she was full of terrible drugs that enabled her to be able to sit up and to move but this could not continue.
I loved her so much that I had to make the terrible decision to put her out of her pain.
If we dare to love we risk the pain of loss and grief.
'Let not your heavy heart be troubled
In my fathers house there are many mansions
If it were not so I would have told you
I go to prepare a place for you And if I go now and prepare a place for you
I will come again and receive you unto myself
That where I am you may be also'.
