Dear Eddie

Saying goodbye to our Schnauzers is the hardest part. Share your memories here as we bid farewell to our beloved friends. They've crossed the bridge and returned to the meadow in full health and free of injuries. Running free. We won't forget.

Graham what a lovely tribute to a special little dog. You brought tears to my eyes. We are so happy to have had the opportunity to have met him.

I didn't realise that was Eddie on the car window silly me should of realised.

Hope you are all well

What a beautiful letter, it had me welling up.

Keep running free Eddie.

Well I never met Eddie but I have still had a little blub. That was very emotive writing and it gave me a clear mental picture of him x

Thanks everyone. He was a very special boy and at five and a half we lost him far too young.

So sad, yet such a wonderful post. I didn't know him but I'm sure he is bounding around the Elysian Fields chasing little critters as he goes.

This made me well up, reading this. Eddie sounds like an incredibly special boy who will always be with you in spirit.
He will be skipping around over the rainbow bridge with all the other lovely schnauzers.

Oh Graham, big paw prints on your heart :(

As long as your forum name is Eddie we will remember the special little man. He was definitely taken far too soon and in an awful way :(

Big hugs to you and Jude, I hope you have raised a glass to your gorgeous boy :-*

Lovely, lovely post. I know exactly how you feel as I also lost my gorgeous Chloe in 2012. Let's hope there is a schnauzer heaven where all our darlings can run free together. Chloe was also salt and pepper like Eddie. I still miss her every day as well. They are never forgotten.

Thinking of you for yesterday :ymhug:

Reading your post gives great insight into your famous boy Eddie, he sounds like he was quite a character. You must miss him very much, but hold him close in your hearts everyday.

Rest in peace Eddie x
