Kaffir: Aug 1987 to Dec 5th 2006. Aged 19 yrs, 4 mths.
Kaffir was a Border Collie Staffordshire/Heeler Labrador cross, whom we got off a friend when his dog had her first litter. We picked her out at birth. Kaffir gave us so much joy, she saw my fiance and I get married, was with me throughout both my pregnancies and has been with our children while they grew. Kaffir lived in Sunbury Vic, and loved to chase ball even in 40 degree heat, loved her walks and rides in the car. She loved polishing off our dinner plates and a good snooze in front of the heater on a cold night. She never jumped on the furniture although in her senior years, she would sleep on the couch, I didn’t mind after all it is warmer on her bones and away from the chill in the floor. She just passed peacefully, I had the feeling that it was her time, and the kids said their goodbyes just before school. I got home from dropping the children at school. She was just taking her last few breaths, I called my husband in from the lounge and together we held her as she passed on. It has been the saddest day and weeks since then. I will miss you forever my beautiful black pup.
Liz, and family
