^..^ Introducing our new Groenendael boy from the UK ^..^

Imported in partnership with our friend Kathryn Todd (Mirribandi), Dylan arrived in Australia in November and was released from quarantine a month later (20th December '07), just in time for the Christmas holidays. We decided on the name Dylan because of the Bob Dylan song ~ Forever Young.

We have lots of wonderful people to thank for enabling this gorgeous boy to come to Australia....

Firstly and most importantly we thank Sandra Smith of 'Lebeau Belgians' for sending us (and being able to part with) such a beautiful boy!
We would also like to thank Lesley and Rob Kane who visited Dylan for us during his stay in quarantine, taking in lots of treats and giving him lot's of cuddles, making his stay a little easier for him (and us).
Not forgetting Tina and Danielle, the two lovely carers at Eastern Creek Quarantine station, who looked after Dylan so well during his stay.
Lastly, our thanks to the shipper and animal transporter we used to help us get Dylan to his new home -
Ryslip Group Ltd (Livestock shipper in the U.K), who shipped Dylan from the United Kingdom to Australia, they were professional and helpful all the way (even with the short notice...lol)
Jetpets who transported Dylan for us within Australia.

Love you ALWAYS and FOREVER Dylan, my gentle big baby lap dog passed away while we were rushing him the vet from a suspected tiger snake bite.......

May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.....

I Stood By Your Bed Last Night

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.

I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,

"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."


I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,

You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.

I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.


I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.

I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.

I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said " it's me."


You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.

I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.

To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...

In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.


The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning

and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,

I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.


Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me....
