By the edge of a wood at the foot of the hill, Is a lush green meadow where time stands still, Where friends of a man and woman do run, when their time on earth is over and done, For here between this world and the next , Is a place where each beloved creature find's rest ! On this golden land they wait and play till Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day. No more do they suffer in pain or sadness for here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness!!!! Their limbs are restored their health renewed their bodies have healed strength imbuled !!!! They run through the grass without even a care, untill one day they Stop and sniff the air !!! All ears pricked forward, eyes dart side to side, Then all of a sudden one breaks from the pack ! For just that instant their eyes have met Together again person and pet, So they run to each other these friends from long past, The time of their parting is over at last !! The sadness they felt whilie they were apart has turned into Joy once more in each heart, They embrace with a love that will last forever and side by side they cross over together !! Run wild and free ROCKY with the warmth of the sun on your back forever x x So young safe and sound forever !Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hi darling, i just wanted to put a message on here to say again how sorry we are, we both wish it could have been a happier ending for you all. I know your hurting so much right now, but please remember the good times, the cheeky times and the naughty times, all boxers have them!! Like we said yesterday if you ever need to talk or anything at all please dont hesitate to call us or contact us. We are here for you. Im sorry we are so far away and couldnt have helped you more. Man's Best Friend You took him in when he was small. Gave him a home, your love, your all. A happy life with you he shared. We all could see how much you cared. You gave to him your very best. Now he has gone to well-earned rest. In spirit he will stay with you. Your little dog forever true. Lots of love Rachel & Neil xxxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I am so sorry to read that Rocky was not reunited in happier circumstances. You must be devasted but please take some comfort from knowing where he is & that he was on a special day. Sometimes the same as when we lose a person we love we ask 'why' we never find the answers but find comfort in knowing we gave them as much happiness as we could. You will in time be able to smile again.xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

So, so sorry to hear about Rocky, the news we all dread to hear. I know it's the hardest time for you but as time passes it does get a little easier day by day and I know it's seems to be the impossible at the moment but there will come a time when you are able to look back with a smile rather than tears. Whilever we remember they are never far away. Thinking of you. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

So very sorry to hear your sad news. Run free dear Rocky over the bridge. At least you know what happened to him and so have closure which must help just a little. God bless. 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, and 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.-Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Today we received the news that we'd all been dreading. Rocky was found washed up onto Pembrey Beach. The whole family are absolutely devastated. Rocky meant the world to us all and we'd like to thank everyone for the kindness they've shown over the last few days, particularly on this site and also the people who we've met and who were so willing to help us. Theres no words todescribe how we feel right now and the memories we have with rocky will live in our hearts forever. Thanks again to you all.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hi I had a boxer stolen 2 years ago from Pembrey. I found her in kennels in Pembroke dock. I had placed an ad in the free ads and someone phoned me on the off chance. I also went around all the post offices and sorting offices with posters. Postmen get everywhere and know were all the dogs are! Good luck.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Owner, sorry to hear that Rocky is missing. There is a big race meeting this weekend at Pembury Race Circuit. Might be a good idea to hand out small flyers. You must keep ringing all shelters etc every day. Make sure that you poster all over Burry Port and surrounding areas. Am in Llandeilo area so will keep a look out for your boy.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
You could try giving posters to the local postmen, dustbin men and taxi companiesLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Still no news or sightings of Rocky. We have posters all around the local area. We've called all the dog wardens / council departments in wales & All the dog pounds they use We've called all vets in Carmarthenshire, Swansea, Pembrokeshire We have adverts in Evening Post, Llanelli Star & Western Mail We've had it advertised on radio stations in the area. Does any one have any more suggestions which we could try? Thanks AgainLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Have sent poster and link to Pembrey Country Park and the Dog Wardens - I hope that you have some good news and that Rocky will be home with you very soonLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Hope rocky is home safe very soon,will cross post on boxer forums come home safe rockyxxxmy thoughts are with his ownersLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Sorry to hear about Rocky. I live in Pembrey not far from the Country Park. I will certainly keep a look out and tell everyone I know to do the same. I am sure you will find him soon.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Poster has been updated.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
owner, good to have you on board, you can use the forum, as you already have done, to share information and to keep us updated on what you have done. postering is good,. i am assuming you have checked with the dog warden as it was out of office hours over the weekend and there is a chance he could have been in kennels all weekend? Poster power and also consider contacting the local newspaper and ask them to run an appeal. if you need a hand, please contact me on 07843 681980. Regards, sianxLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
We'd like to add more details to this add, any idea how - is it only by ringing the number we can do this? Rocky Dissappeared while I was walking on Pembrey beach (Burry Port end, approximately entrance H) on Friday evening at 7pm. We have been out all weekend looking for him in the area and the area is covered with posters. There is a ?500 reward for Rocky's safe return as he means everything to all of our family. Rocky is a very people-orientated dog and would have approached anyone after he realised he could not see us. The most worrying thing is that we have asked so many people and it seems that no one has seen any sign of him. He has recently ben castrated and still has stitches in which were due to be removed on Saturday which is another worry. Any advice would be very much appreciated. ThanksLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
Poster has been e mailed out to local helpers. owner your account is now active-please up date us.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I've just spoken to the owner, they've been on pembrey all weekend and put posters everywhere but it doesn't have a picture of him. He's coming on line to send a pic. One thing he did tell me was one thing that might set him apart he has a LONG TAIL NOT DOCKED. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
I'm possibily off to pembrey beach next week with the dogs so will look out for him, could take some posters if pic is available, if owner has a problem providing I have a scanner and she is the same area code as me so can't be far from me, let me know>?? Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Local sanctuaries Lizzie's Barn and Trallwm Farm have been informed. Text sent to Lizzie's, haven't hear back yet. Trallwm will help to put word around horse people as there are sponsored rides and similar activities there. I just spoke to Haverfordwest area pound in case someone hands him in there on Monday. People come from quite a distance to enjoy a day out at Pembrey, so anyone who picked Rocky up could have come from Pembs, Swansea etc. It could have been too late to find a pound or warden to deal with him before the weekend, and if he is handed in tomorrow it may well be to a pound other than the local one nr Ammanford.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
