Tributes to Paco and Amber-Mae

I am very sad to announce that two of my long time blogging friends have passed away recently.

My dearest amico, Paco.

May 24, 2006 - November 11, 2013

I met Paco on several occasions when I was living in Italy. We had such wonderful times together. Paco was a lovely boy who loved his mum, Simona, with all his heart. The Missus and Dad were also smitten by him. You can read more abut our adventures together here, here and here.

Sadly, he crossed the rainbow bridge on 11 November, 2013.


Booti-ful Amber-Mae

October 28, 2005 - November 23, 2013

Amber-Mae and her mum, Melissa, began blogging around about the same time as Yours Truly. We had been blog-pals ever since I was living in South Korea and have enjoyed ‘stalking’ each other’s blog for many years.

Amber-Mae was a very booti-ful, intelligent and gifted gal who won many prizes in Dog Shows. She also excelled in, amongst many other things, acting, performing tricks and doggy-dancing.

She passed away peacefully on 23 November, 2013.

I will miss both Paco and Amber-Mae dearly.

Run free and wild, my friends. I love you.

Dear Homer,
It is so unfair - they were both young Golden Retrievers.

I knew Amber Mae, and had read the news on her blog. My thoughts go to her family. I am also sad to hear about your friend Paco, although I never visited his blog I knew of him from your blog posts and can see that you shared many wonderful times together.

Howdy Homer, we didn't know your friends but send their families our sincere sympathy. Gentle hugs to you too mate. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

It's so very hard to lose our friends, isn't it. We read Amber-Mae's blog and Paco and Milo were among our first blog friends. We have been very sad.
