Still too sad to say much but have really found comfort in putting this video together and hope you enjoy it too.

Warning - it is as epic as he was. Sound on to get its full epic-ness smile

Oh my what a great dog. I am so sorry you are feeling so understandably sad. Dogs do not live long enough sad although Berkeley did not seem to waste a minute of his life.

What amazing memories you will have of Berkeley a truly epic dog

I am going to be more Berkeley

Oh my word what a lovely tribute to an obviously outstanding boy, made me want to laugh, smile and cry at the same time. Thank you for sharing your tribute to your beloved Berkeley🐾🐾

Oh I'm so sorry flowers. Lovely lovely video. I've gone all emotional.

Goodness that had me in tears . What an awesome dog he was - so sorry he is no longer with you.

What a fabulous little dog! Such an amazing tribute to him smile

Thank you all soooo very much.

Wow-what a fantastic little dog! Thinking of you at this sad time, the video is a fantastic tribute to your wonderful friend Berkeley and the joy he bought to your lovely family for giving him a 5* home.

He was adorable. What a lovely life he had with you.

Thank you. I am so warmed by the thought of all the people watching his video... seeing a little snapshot of his life and his happy little soul.

I'm missing him so very much sad

He's so lovely and so full of enthusiasm for EVERYTHING. Your video is fab. Hope you can remember the good times with him.
Loving the Bedlington in the video too - we have one of them - she's... spirited.

LimeJellyHead Fri 22-Jan-16 20:53:29

He was, thank you. A super enthusiastic boy. We used to laugh that he never walked anywhere... everything was full speed.

lol re the Beddie. That was Boycie. He passed nearly 7 years ago. He was incredibly sweet and kind hearted but totally stoopid. The heart of a lion though, exactly what they say about Beddies. Gawd love them.

GiddyGiddyGoat Fri 22-Jan-16 21:14:22

Our Bedlington is affectionately known as 'Devil Dog'...

LimeJellyHead Sat 23-Jan-16 09:34:41

Ours was known was "Rocks for Brains" and should have been called Trigger, not Boycie, lol.

GiddyGiddyGoat Sat 23-Jan-16 12:10:11

Are you quite sure he was stupid? Not just very very cunning and pretending to be stupid?! Ours is far from thick, but stubborner than a stubborn thing from Stubborntown... She will do what you want her to ONLY if it happens to coincide with what she wants to do anyway. She is clever enough to have trained us up to understand her every whim and make us do as she pleases. So she's not stupid, just bloody difficult. (But we love her very much).

LimeJellyHead Sat 23-Jan-16 13:49:35

lol, a bit of both. You just reminded me... we did one of those intelligence tests on them years ago and laughed so much. One thing was a treat under a tea towel and you had to time how long it took them to get the treat out from under it. Berkeley removed the tea towel, ate the treat.... job done in 20 secs. Boycie stood and nibbled a perfect hole in the tea towel, took over 30 mins. Epic fail, lol.

LimeJellyHead Sat 23-Jan-16 13:50:58

Berkeley was soooo clever, it was like having a 4 year old child in the house. You could see him thinking all the time.

LimeJellyHead Wed 27-Jan-16 14:23:24

Berkeley's grave marker finally arrived today. The perfect tribute to the happiest, funniest dog ever. Always in my heart.

flowers What a fabulous dog, OP, I am so sorry

insan1tyscartching Wed 27-Jan-16 14:48:06

Oh you made me smile and cry, what a lovely dog who had a beautiful life, I am so sorry for your loss flowers

LimeJellyHead Wed 27-Jan-16 15:52:23

Thank you so much. I am still crying buckets every day but trying hard to remember and smile. He was so amazing and my bestest little friend. We were never apart.
