Goodbye Jessie Dog

Yesterday we had to make a very tough decision to say goodbye to one of our beloved dogs. She was very sick and there wasn't much that could be done to help her. Jess I rescued from the pound when we were working in the mines in WA a few years ago now (that time before marriage and babies). She was a Red Cloud Kelpie X, a absolutely beautiful girl and she will be very sadly missed by us and her best mate Millie.

With her best mate Millie on one of or many trips back and forwards across the Nullabour in the ute camped at a random spot when we had, had enough driving for the day
All four of us in the swag in the back of the ute at the Corrigin (WA) Dog in a Ute Muster - it was a very cold night!

Goodbye Jessie girl x


  1. awww that is so sad, horrible to say goodbye to loved pets who are as much a part of the family as the kids! big hugs to you xo

  2. Anna, I am feeling for you. It is such a hard decision to make - I have had to do it more than once and it never gets easier. Big hugs to you and your family.

  3. so sorry to hear , hope your puppy is up in heaven chasing butterflies and whatever else dogs like to do. We crossed the nullabor with our staffy he is 9 still alive and kicking but many memories of life with him and hubby before kids came along. take it easy xx

  4. I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
    You gave Jessie a great life by rescuing her.
    Thinking of you all, give Millie a huge hug for me. xxx

  5. Oh Anna I am so sorry. We lost our cat of 13+ years in March - a pet does leave a big hole when they are gone.
    Hope all the photos of good times make you feel a bit better.
