SADLY MISSED

TYROL INDIAN RULER

"INDY"

22/04/97 - 19/10/10 

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, 

so he put his arms around you and whispered "come with me,"
With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.  

A TRUE GOLDEN HEART stopped beating WHEN you were laid to rest 

& God...He broke our hearts to prove to us...He only takes the BEST.

INDY OUR EASY GOING, GENTLE BOY PASSED AWAY ON OCTOBER 19TH 2010 AT THE AGE OF 13 1/2 YEARS.  WE ARE THANKFUL THAT LIKE HIS BROTHER ROCKY, INDY HAD ONLY A SHORT ILLNESS AND DIED A NATURAL DEATH AT HOME WHERE HE ALWAYS LOVED TO BE.  INDY DIED AS HE LIVED - GENTLY & WITHOUT FUSS & WITH THE CUDDLES & SOOTHING WORDS THAT HE SO LOVED.

INDY NEVER REALLY TOOK TO THE SHOW RING BUT IN THE SHORT TIME HE WAS SHOWN DID QUITE WELL.  BUT - IT WAS NOT FOR ANY SHOW RING SUCCESS THAT WE LOVED INDY - WE LOVED HIM SIMPLY FOR BEING INDY.  ALTHOUGH INDY DID NOT HAVE ANY OFFSPRING HE WAS A KINDLY UNCLE TO EVERY PUPPY HE MET, HE ALLOWED THEM TO CLIMB ALL OVER HIM, PULL HIS TAIL & WHEN THEY FINALLY TIRED SNUGGLE UP BESIDE HIM!  ANYBODY WHO MET INDY INSTANTLY FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM - HE HAD A TRULY GOLDEN HEART & WILL ALWAYS HAVE A PLACE IN OUR HEARTS.

It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
A part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
Your face is not forgotten, we see it every day.
Itís the heartache of not having you, that never goes away.

SWEET DREAMS, REST WELL GENTLE INDY UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN.
