Met the gorgeous Jones yesterday in Maxi Zoo with Claire, wow he is a fine looking dog and really handsome, so much bigger and stronger looking than his photos would have you believe. What struck me in particular was how obedient he was, really well trained - well done Claire, you are doing an amazing job there! x

Well the fab Mr. Jones headed off to his new home this weekend :D He really is such a fantastic dog and his new family are over the moon! He has settled really well and has a new pal (Ruby) who is more than happy to share his bed with him! He will be very much missed by us all and the house is VERY quiet without him but its great to see him so happy and settled in his new home. He met nearly all of the DID gang at some stage during his time in fostercare and I know we will all be following his progress and I have been promised loads of updates! Be happy my little big man xxx

I might have to wait, I'll never give up . . . wherever you are, whenever it's right you'll come out of nowhere and into my life . . .And I promise you, kid, I give so much more than I get, I just haven't met you yet.

Was in NYC so hadn't been on in a while, delighted to see Mr Jones has found his forever family. I shed a little tear reading his update ;)

I just cannot commend Claire highly enough for the remarkable love and dedication and training and time that Claire gave to this fantastic dog, to make absolutely sure that he went to the right family. He is of course wonderful in himself but WELL DONE CLAIRE AND THANKS A MILLION on behalf of all of us :D

I finally got to meet this gorgeous young guy yesterday out walking with his new best friend Ruby. He had a great time running and fetching with my Bran (DID pup Comet). He really is a stunning dog, just one look from those big brown eyes had me signing up to the Jones fanclub. He looks wonderful, happy and healthy and such a pet :D . He has settled so well into his new home that Lisa says she feels he has been there for ever and not just a few weeks. All of his new family are absolutely in love with this guy and while it must have been so difficult for Claire to let him go I know he will get all the love and care he deserves in his new forever home.

(Lisa promises to update soon, she is having some 'technical' difficulties)

Delighted to read the great news about Jones on the new DID newsletter which I received today. Claire - you were such a dedicated and comitted fosterer to Jones. Your efforts and love for Jones paid-off the day he went to his new home, which sounds like it's working out brilliantly!

It is with a very heavy heart that I write this. It is not a post I imagined writing for many many years. Our special Mr. Jones developed a very sudden and aggressive cancer. His forever family got the shocking and sad news earlier in the week that this beautiful boy was very sick and sadly due to the aggressiveness of the cancer there was nothing that could be done.

His amazing family rallied around him and brought him home yesterday evening. During the night his breathing became very strained and they called the vet this morning who came out to the house at lunch time.

It is a sad sad day. It seems just so unfair that this beautiful boy has been taken so soon. Such a young boy he won the heart of everyone he ever met. He was in foster so long and I knew when I met Lisa and her family that he had simply been waiting for them to find him. They adored him from the moment they met him and although hard saying goodbye I was comforted knowing that this special boy had found his special happy ending. It is so unfair that his family had him such a short time.

They invited me down this morning to say goodbye which was amazing and just sums up the very special family that opened their home and hearts to Jones.

Heartbroken. This amazing boy who was so full of love and fun will never be forgotten and can never be replaced. A one off he was a special little angel who had a gift for making people smile. He was still wagging his tail despite the obvious struggle it was for him to catch his breath.

He was at home with his family and knew he was loved to his last breath.

Myself and Gar were talking about his time with us well into the night and he really summed it up with this saying "The flame that burns twice as bright burns half as long". Mr. Jones blazed his way into our lives and he will never be forgotten.

Sleep soundly little prince.
