For Ebe…long gone but not forgotten.

In memory of my one and only dog – a bigger than average Scottish Terrier called, Ebenezer – a real character who died 21 years ago today on the 30th. September 1994. He was an excellent walking companion – and over his lifetime we walked miles and miles and miles together…  

He loved to visit Dartmoor too – and being very hairy – he enjoyed nothing better than cooling-off in the clear Dartmoor streams and rivers. (Having dug out this olde photograph – I notice I still wear my hair the same – only now I’m greyer – much greyer!)  

Happy days.

On top of the world - on Dartmoor

Together on top of the world.   Dartmoor 1989.

Into my heart an air that kills
From yon far country blows:
What are those blue remembered hills,
What spires, what farms are those?

That is the land of lost content,
I see it shining plain,
The happy highways where I went
And cannot come again.

A. E. Houseman

  1. Oh I am so sorry to read this, what can we do when we loose our lovely pets, its a loss of a family member, a space that just cannot be filled, I am so sorry.

    • Thank you Lynn –

      Ebe was my first ‘baby’ – and when I had my second – of the cute, peachy-pink variety in 1993 – Ebe gave up the ghost and faded away over the course of a year. I feel I broke his faithful old heart – he’d always been a one person sort of dog.
