Sad news

After a very short illness Baruch left this life on the 18th March aged 4 5 years leaving us devastated.

The following poem is for him. It was written by Stuart Rose


(Our blue Great Dane aka PUPPY)

He gave us four years of joy and delight
Seventy six kilos of muscle and might
With Bellamy his dad true partners for life
But his early years suffered trouble and strife

He gave so much joy to thousand out there
They wanted a photo a memory to share
Or give him a fuss or hold him on lead
Their attention he loved to honour his breed

He gave us a new life and was much in demand
To pose for a photo with minimum command
Whether TV commercial or magazine to write
Whatever he did – a magnificent sight 

He gave for charities collecting thousands of pounds
To help others with their ups and their downs
Baruch with his dad a sight to be seen
Tempted most to donate made eager and keen

He gave pints of his blood, the donor supreme
To help other dogs in crisis, his vet would deem
With never a fuss the precious blood given
Saving many a life to duty was striven

He gave his body for research for others
For a better future for canine fathers or mothers
Even after death the giving never ceased
The legacy for Baruch- a magnificent beast


He gave us his love, unconditional and free
And made us feel good which all will agree
Goodbye Baruch we miss you so much
No more hugs and kisses or even a touch

He gave us much joy mere words can’t convey
Our hearts are truly broken but memories will stay
Run free and play oh gentle friend
May you be given deserved joy without end

  1. That is so sad. Pets are greatly missed when they leave this earth, no matter how big or small. We saw you around in Grovelands and Trent. My daughter was always keeping a lookout as she loves great danes and still wants to get one. Unfortunately due to lack of space for a pet of that size it might never happen. I hope the sadness eases and only the fond memories remain.
