Renovation project – Goodbye Rex

Renovation project – Goodbye RexWe have had such a hectic time trying to say all of our goodbyes, but there is one that has a special place. Before we moved to France we had a large old dog called Rex, he was supposed to retire to France with us, but unfortunately he didn’t make it, he was too old and life couldn’t keep up. It was only a short time before we left for France that he died,But it was too short an amount of time for me to be ready to say good bye in the UK and leave him in a strange place alone (yes I now he was a dog, but he had been my loyal companion for over 12 years) so we made the decision to take his ashes to France and bury him there, this never happened on our first time in France, certainly couldn’t leave him in Spain and our new French house has no garden, this is where my wonderful friend stepped in.We met when she was first moving to France, when I was an estate agent and became firm friends, well this person is a dog lover and has rescued many dogs since coming to France, many of whom were very old or inform and there is a small section of her garden, under the shade of a tree where her dogs ashes are sprinkled and she kindly offered to let Rex rest there.Although we will not be coming back to this bit of France anytime soon, it will always hold a piece of my heart, with so many happy memories and so many good friends and I know he will be kept company by the new dogs that arrive.We lay his ashes and sit in the garden enjoying our last glass of wine.Goodbye Rex, the first and hardest of our goodbyes and thank you Suzy
