Today we are Remembering with LOVE IN OUR HEARTS the fabulously adventurous boy SPIKE!
SPIKE’S story is a wonderfully happy life story! Although a shorter life than hoped for, the amount SPIKE packed into each day would have filled any long life!
We spoke with Angela about her lovely boy!
Angela told us that SPIKE was in fact her son’s doggy! As her son’s college became more complex and demanding she decided to take SPIKE on as her own doggy! Indeed the best idea in our eyes, Nanny loved him loads anyway!
Full of energy and being such an intelligent dog, SPIKE needed lots of exercise and stimulation! – He got this everyday from Angela and lived each and every day with vigour, zest and love!
We love Angela’s description of SPIKE! The perfect characteristics in a dog we would say! ‘Smart, Passive sweet loving, protective, always hungry, lol and a bit neurotic cuz of our other dogs!
SPIKE was a doggy who just loved everything, children, adults, other doggy’s – his acceptance of life and other’s in it is a wonderful teaching to us humans! You certainly were the master of this teaching SPIKE!
SPIKE was a Mummy’s boy. Everywhere she went, SPIKE would love to go too! This could be anywhere from chilling on the sofa right to the other end of life’s wonderful activities, swimming, hiking and travelling! SPIKE’S other passions were watching movies with his Mum and sort of helping her with the household chores! We love the thought of this!
Angela says the only place he couldn’t follow her was to work! Of course, if he could have followed her there, he would have been there in a flash! Angela thought his name really should have been SHADOW!
Loving all water, SPIKE loved to swim and hike best of all! It would only take a mention of one of these words and he would not be able to contain his utter excitement! SPIKE your zest for life was an inspiration!
Now, could SPIKE get any cuter? Well yes he could! If he didn’t understand something he would look at you with a weird, wonderful and goofy smile with one tooth on display! Seriously how cute can you get!
Angela told us a little more ….. ‘He was a big bear. Loved snuggling and kisses. He was always looking out for us if we’d go swimming or hiking he’d get way ahead but would always double back to check on us and if we’d slow down he’d get in back a made sure we made the hike or swim. He was protective he’d bark at any stranger. Once he saw we would be friendly with them he’d switch from protector to lover. Lol. If you were sad he’d lay his head on your lap or shoulder and kisses or hand shakes were given. He played well with other dogs!’
SPIKE EARNED HIS ANGEL WINGS AT THE AGE OF EIGHT! HE IS ENJOYING HIS ADVENTURES OVER THE RAINBOW BRIDGE WITH THE SAME WONDERFUL ATTITUDE!
FLY HIGH BABY BOY, THE OTHER DOGGY’S IN DOGGY HEAVEN ARE A BETTER TEAM WITH YOUR AROUND SWEETIE!
