Peshwarli – “Peshi” was Ms Botsi’s full blood sister both born 30 June 1998.



Today we had to make a tough decision….to do the kindest thing for Peshi and end the potential suffering she would endure. So at 10.30 Sunday 15th November just a few weeks after losing Botsi, Peshi finally, after a battle with the Vet, lay down with me cradling her head &  talking softly into her ear,  closed those beautiful big green eyes and went to reunite with her sister.


Her final minutes were very traumatic, her heart was weak & so could not pump the “injection” around her system….but she was so brave, as animals so very often are. She accepted what was her fate and bore it with dignity.  It is a shame that we “superior” Homo sapiens can not learn something from the animal kingdom….they never complain, bare pain & discomfort with dignity & are loyal…always  :(



Peshi’s life was a real rollercoaster….she suffered from “nerves” and on a few occasions had been on steroids in order to calm her…..but she was always faithful to those close to her.  Headbutts being her speciality she could knock a drink out of your hand with just one headbutt!!!!



From a kitten she chose to sleep on my feet….each night she would bound up the stairs, wait until I got into bed, then circle up and down the bed until she flopped on my feet….and there she would stay. When I was in hospital having given birth to my first baby….the only thing I missed was the weight of Peshi on my feet!!


Peshi was a beautiful, soft, kind hearted, gentle soul to those who she worshipped…..people who she did not like or know, were given one of her best hisses….then she would run and hide.


I am sure she has found peace within her soul up at Rainbow Bridge, where she can trust everyone. I know she will forgive us for the decision we made….and that she passed on hearing my voice telling her to give that sister of hers a big kiss…..goodnight my brave Peshi…*X* 


May I Go



Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days and endless lonely nights?
I’ve lived my life and done my best, an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond, and set my spirit free?
I didn’t want to go at first, I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now to a warm and living light.
I want to go, I really do; it’s difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me and share your love and fears.
I know you’re sad and afraid, because I see your tears.
I’ll not be far, I promise that, and hope you’ll always know,
That my spirit will be close to you wherever you may go.
Thank you so for loving me. You know I love you too,
And that’s why it’s hard to say goodbye and end this life with you.
So hold me now just one more time and let me hear you say,
Because you care so much for me, you’ll let me go today

    Oh dear,

    I’m upset for you all as know pets are as children to us pet lovers. Very beautifully written.

    My own little doggy sounds of a similar temperament to Peshwarli we got her from the RSPCA brutally battered by her owner. She is loved and loves us but doesn’t trust many.

    Very Poignant

    Stephy told me She’s a grand one isn’t she..

    Her tweets with The Bruvs are very very funny
