Farewell sweet Jess 2002 - 16th February 2012 by 

Jess has been a friend of Indy and I ever since she was a pup. Unfortunately Jess passed away suddenly due to an infection in her pancreas on Thursday evening the 16th of February. I adored her. I was lucky enough to have Jess as my house guest on a couple of occasions last year when her owners Dave and Beryl went on holiday. I loved having her and she got on well with Indy even though she bossed him [and me] terribly. She would literally thump me if she wanted my attention and when I called her a pretty girl her tail would start wagging furiously. I’m going to miss her terribly but Indy has another friend to play with at Rainbow Bridge along with Scamp, Rob, Ellie, Dan, Holly, Megan and too many others, She was part of a golden generation of dogs in Llanfairfechan who all grew up together and are now sadly leaving us. Dave and Beryl are terribly sad and shocked as are all who loved her

    I know the awful pain of losing a pet – in fact, of losing a Border Collie. My thoughts are with you. <3 LILY

    How hard it is to lose two beloved animal friends so close together. I’ve been thru this as well and it just hurts way down deep and this kind of hurt goes so deep that it is seemingly bottomless. I can only hope for the day when we all will be re-united together never to part again. The more “goodbyes” I say down here, the more “hellos” I’ll get up there!!! Wag on!

    They add so much love to our lives but their shorter life span is hard to deal with when
    the time comes. Sorry you are having so many so close together. Hope you are
    starting to think of a new pup, maybe for Spring…

    I lost my Border Collie on February 17th,2010. She was 13 and we had her from the day she was born. I still miss her very much. I’m so sorry to hear of your loss of Jess.
    Marvellous capture of her.

  • Jess was my friends dog but a special pal, I lost my Collie Indy just before Christmas and it’s hard.
