In Loving Memory


1st September 2009 ~ 16th April 2019


Its with a sad heavy heart we have to say that our beautiful brave girl Spritz has crossed to rainbow bridge on 16th April 2019.

About 2 weeks ago we noticed that she had gone lame and didn’t want to walk far. We hoped this was down to her getting older and maybe overdoing things a bit recently. A trip to the vets and still no improvement so x-rays were required to find out what was going on. We collected her from the vets last Friday (12th) to get the devastating news that poor Spritz had bone cancer in her right hip.

We made her as comfortable as we could with painkillers but she went downhill over the weekend. The last kind act we could do for her was to help across rainbow bridge to run pain free with all her friends. Her ashes will be laid to rest at the memorial garden at Daybreaks kennels Solihull.

Dear Spritzy, when we adopted you we looked forward to giving you a happy loving home for years to come not just four months but we have lots of memories from that time. Thank you for all the fun times we had together and for being such a beautiful happy loving girl, we are all missing you so much. You have been so brave over the last week but this was one battle too many. Run now pain free with all those who have gone before, we just hope you get better luck at the bridge. Until we meet again sleep tight darling xx


Fings Are Lookin Up (by Paddy)

My new PA Spritz haz been wiv me a munth now alreddy and the changes in our house are remarkabul. Thiz iz not to say there woz anyfing wrong  but I haz noticed more effishunt runnin of me biznis affairz and fings.

Wivin a week of Spritz arrivin I didz note a more regimentel order so to speek. Me walks was on time, me dinner woz never late,before it could be 5 minutes past dinner time before me yummies appeered…scandlous! Treets iz on tap wiv minimul beggin required.

Even better I told Spritz to take over me orderin of supplies etc and wow what a supa job she didz do. In no time I noted a fully stocked treet cupboard, more treets in the kitchen draw in case we duz fancy a snack or three (which we duz). The uther day the door bell didz ring and it woz the nice man in the red coat wiv a parcil. Spritz didz wink to me and I duz be a bit confuzed at first. Then I didz notice the parcil woz a case of top quality Lily’s kitchen foodies and itz yummy.

After me dinner Spritz didz tell me she ordered it for us and didz also make sure regular items are noted on the shoppin list,fings like chicken and beef slices and me favorit bisgits. I duzn’t know how I haz managed without her all thiz time.

Well I iz delighted to sayz we duz hav Spritz stayin wiv us for a while. I didz fink it woz funny that 2 new bedz did appear all of a sudden and then we didz go to me aunti Ruth’s new house which duzn’t normally happen. Well I iz really happy to say I duz fink she iz luvly and we didz becum frends strate away. I wuld say for the record that my instant frendship wiv Spritz woz nuffing to do wiv the 2 large goody bagz she did bring wiv her for Christmas to share wiv me.

Today is Crissmass day and we didz get hup to lots of fings left by Santa Pawz. Itz grate coz there were 2 socks put up meanin 2 lotz of prezzies. Spritz is super coz we didz both share all the toyz and treets.

Well the luvly Christmas dinner we didz hav will help lotz and our mommy didz say we iz havin sossiges for our supper. Here’s what Spritz haz to say.

Hello all my friends from Daybreaks. I’m very happy to be here with Paddy and he has been a real gentleman to me looking after me while I get settled in. He’s explained the lifestyle here telling me when breakfast and dinner will arrive and showing me where everything is. I find the stairs no problem as we have beds on both floors and we can please ourselves where we go. I quickly found out that whenever mommy or daddy goes in the room called the kitchen food tends to available so I follow to see if I can get some. I’ve had no problem finding my way to the garden for wee wees again thanks to Paddy’s guidance. I hope everyone hound and person has a very Merry Christmas.

Love from Spritz xxx

I duz wish everyone a super Crissmass time
