Charlie Hollingsworth


Passed away on September 12, 2021

Charlie came to are living with us by way of a rescue group. He was all-around 18 months previous. There were distinctive stories about his existence in advance of we adopted him, but he was most probably neglected and maybe abused. Charlie was not an easy pet to stay with – he pulled on his leash, barked at anyone who frequented or walked previous the home, and continuously demanded attention from us and the cats.

He almost died two times following his adoption due to an infection from neutering, and experienced numerous medical issues around the 10 many years we owned him, but he evidently liked us unconditionally and was really protecting of the full loved ones.

I hardly ever recognized how substantially Charlie grew to become so substantially a section of our day-to-day lives until eventually he was long gone.

Every little thing from walks in the park, rides in the car or truck, trips to Starbucks, or even just family members dinners at residence or sitting down on the deck experienced an vacant experience those people 1st several weeks.

My partner and I are more mature now and the youngsters are grown and have moved away, so we knew Charlie would be our very last pet dog. I still come to feel guilty at the periods when I turned impatient with Charlie, but he taught me that I am only human and that I necessary to study to be patient with myself far too!

I really feel his existence from time to time when I wander by his favourite parts of the park, and I’d like to consider that when I cross my individual rainbow bridge he will be waiting around for me.
