Absent Friends

Henry Keating - 1997- March 2023


For those of you who didn’t meet Henry, he was the Rose Cottage practice parrot for many years before he went to live with one of our Nurses, Emma. He was an expert in mimicking the door chime at night, the phone alerts and a drip alarm, and could diffuse any tense situation in the back room with his cheeky little cackle! His passing very much signifies the end of an era here at the practice. Jen the Vet even remembers him dive bombing her head when she was a Vet student which should give you some idea of how old he was! He’s had a fabulous home with Emma, and was certainly the best cared for, happiest parrot we've ever met. His passing will certainly have left Henry shaped holes in lots of hearts and he will be missed dearly.

Angel Schofield 2010 - 5/3/2023


Angel came to us from the RSPCA, sadly mistreated she had a back leg missing. With lots of TLC she became an extremely loving dog, loyal and playful, always up for a ball game. Not letting her disability hold her back too much she lived an active life and proved herself to be one tough cookie! Thanks to all the staff at Rose Cottage, especially Joe who helped enormously to keep her having a great quality of life, and Lucy who gave her such a peaceful end once that quality of life had gone. There's a big Angel shaped hole in our lives and she's greatly missed but we are fortunate to have been able to love her and be loved in return.

When tomorrow starts without me, don't think we are far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.
Love Irene and Ian Boothman and family xxxx

Charly Fraser

Charly crossed the rainbow 🌈 bridge while I was at her side, joining Katie, Sam, Tim and Sheba before her. The last chapter of her life was full of love, joy, and affection, despite her struggles with paralysis. I miss her dearly, I will never forget her and how much she meant to me, how she made me feel she changed my life forever.
Charly was so beautiful and smart, a dear, sweet, loving family member and though I knew the time would come to say goodnight, she will never be forgotten, her beauty remains forever.
May the angels wrap their beautiful wings around you, providing comfort, peace and love, you are free to run and play Charly with your brothers and sisters in heaven.
Thank you little one until we meet again, to see and hold each other once again.
Many thanks to all of you at Rose Cottage for all the love and support you gave Charly and me and to Bel a very dear friend.
Charly Fraser 2007 to 12/10/21

Tiger Wilson

Tiger was a big part of our life since she was 8 weeks old. She has always been a kind and loving soul, with a gentle nature. She has a left a huge paw print in our lives that will never be replaced.
Thank you to Ken and all the staff for their hard work and dedication while tiger was there.

Lots of love Charlotte, Matty, Toby, Jake, Florence and Marcus xxxx

Bella Marks

Isabella Biscuit Marks. Bella - Boo, Bella, little Bells; our precious little girl and mummys baby.

Who would have known that something so small would leave such a huge hole in our lives, in our paw printed hearts as Bella did? Her ears were always wet, her tail non stopped wagging, she woofed a lot, gave the best kisses and would happily sneeze in your face to bid a good morning, to let you know she was awake and could you please let her out for a wee. She dawdled along on our adventures, she rolled in absolutely everything and anything and wow was she proud of herself, the smellier the better! Bella gave the best cuddles, she snuggled her fluffy brother Enzo completely when she felt like it and loved to drive in the front of the car with me, her mummy. So, in between our hello and goodbye there was love, so much love and I wouldn’t change a thing, we wouldn’t change one thing.

Alice Ward

We adopted Alice in 2015 when she was retired from racing and she was just the gentlest, prettiest girl, so full of personality. She had a very happy and comfortable life with us, and we were lucky to have her in our lives for 6 years. We’re going to miss her so much.
Run free sweet Alice, all is well. We love you xx

Molly Roberts

Molly was a true friend and a loved member of our family, Molly came to us in her later life and the years we had with her brought much comfort and happiness to us all. Thank you Mum for the gift you brought us,
Molly you will always live in our hearts.

Poppy Lou

Good bye my beautiful Poppy. You was my best friend. You got me through the hardest time in my life and I don't feel right without you. I will always miss you 💖💖😭

Bruno Baker

Bruno was always more than just a dog to us and he will always be part of our family. He was incredibly loyal and protective.
He’s left a massive space in our hearts but we have beautiful memories that we will always cherish. We’ll never forget the time he ran off and rolled around in cow poo, when we were on our honeymoon! We had to sneak him back into the hotel and shower him off - this was not easy, as the owners of the hotel were outside!
We can’t thank Joe and all the team at Rose Cottage enough, they gave us an extra 2 and half years with Bruno and helped make his final moments peaceful.
Bruno is at peace now but he is greatly missed by his mummy, daddy and little sisters.

Ella Williams

Ella Williams you truly where one of a kind.
It’s been 8 weeks since your pretty little face left our home to be an angel in the sky.
We can’t describe the pain we’ve felt from your absence after loving you so hard for 10 years of your crazy little life.
You showed us loyalty and love like no other.
From being a show pup at 5 months old and owning the stage with the dog whisperer, Cesar Millan, to being the biggest diva we all knew. We couldn’t have picked a better little lady.
Ken lovingly brought you into this world on the 19th of October 2009 and was right by your side on the 13th of June when the angels needed you more.
We can’t thank him enough for everything he did for you even if you were the biggest drama queen and diva when taking a trip to the vets!
Life is never going to be the same without you our girl and we miss you more and more each day.
Sleep tight cotton head.
Lots of love and cuddles from your Mummy, Daddy and big sisters Lauren and Lois xxxxx

Harvey Mounfield

A little bit of a story for Harvey Mounfield.
13/04/2003- 24/06/2020

Harvey came in to my life in July 2003. He came to work most days from the age of 6 months up until 2015, greeting customers.

Unfortunately I got divorced in 2011 and Harvey soon become man's best friend to me.

I moved to a Welsh village, not knowing anyone. Within 1 week, Harvey broke the ice with everyone, we were both made very welcome in to the local pubs in the village and both made friends with locals in no time.

We left wales in 2015 returned back to Runcorn, and again Harvey made many friends again,

I could only class Harvey as a gentle loving dog.

He was always trying to keep going even on his final few hours but unfortunately old age get the better of him on Wednesday 24/06/2020 RIP.

Toby Yates


Today on the 4th February 2020 the angels came and took you my beautiful beloved Toby. I had you since you were 9 weeks old and you passed away at 16.5 years old. Words can’t express how much I miss you, you were loved so much. We wish we could have been there to say goodbye and cuddle you one more time. We hope you can find your way back to us here in Australia and understand why we had to leave you behind. Thank you mum & dad for looking after him towards the end when we knew we had to leave to come back to Australia. It was one of the hardest things we have ever had to do. We are happy though that you are no longer in any pain and I hope you can now be back with us in Australia in spirit. You had a great life and travelled the world. Miss you, my bestest friend ever! I will never forget you my sweetheart, you brought so much joy and happiness to all of us. I hope you are with Brandy now, hopefully I will see you again one day 😥.

Mackeson (Mac) Worrall

Mac and Guinness (his dad) were our family dogs. We sadly said goodbye to Guinness in 2011, but were blessed to still have Mac. My husband and I often took Mac on camping holidays and had lots of adventures. In early 2018, due to my dad's illness, we were priviledged to bring Mac to live with us full time. At almost 17, he was an old man himself, but loved going out and about until his last couple of days, so we still had plenty of adventures. I thought of him as my furry little brother rather than a pet, and was devastated to have to say goodbye to him on 16/11/18. I miss him every day, but I'm grateful for all of the happy memories.

Mitzi Roberts

Mitzi was a loving pet, grumpy at times but that's what we loved about her, pure catitude.

In loving memory of Mitzi.

Luna Callow

On 16th October 2018, we said goodbye to our lovely Luna. She was still only a baby at 3 years, but made those 3 years so special for us as a family. Helping our oldest daughter overcome her fear of dogs and welcoming our youngest daughter to the world, (Luna probably being the first one to know she was on the way and being protective of me throughout the pregnancy). She showed anyone she met love and affection and excelled in giving massive hugs.

Luna was a massive part of our family and will be sorely missed. We are absolutely heartbroken and we will never forget her xxxx

Love and hugs forever both of you.

Dill Caton

My darling Dill sadly passed away on 25 September, peacefully at home, lying on my chest where she had been all morning. I was always afraid she would fight right to the end as she was such a feisty madam who never lay still in my arms for more than a few minutes, but for once she lay so peacefully for hours. She was never the same after losing her litter mate Louie seven months ago. She was suddenly so ready to go.

My heartfelt thanks to all the staff at Rose Cottage who have been amazing over the years to both myself, Louie and Dill. I really can’t thank you enough.

Special thanks to Ken who has cared for us so well over the years, and to Sean who we had only seen a couple of times but who was truly compassionate and considerate when it came to Dill’s departure.

My feisty Dill had such strength of character, and with her laid back protective brother they were perfect mates and companions who enhanced my life so much. We were a perfect happy pack.

Louie Caton

Sadly, on 12 February 2018 I had to say goodbye to my darling Louie. He was put to rest peacefully at home, snuggled close to my chest in the position he would always find comfort and security at night if he was restless.

I would like to thank all the staff for the constant dedication and care shown. As a practice I have always had nothing but praise. The 24-hour service makes such a difference with the knowledge that you will always speak to a practice vet. So comforting to know that help is always just a phone call away.

I would especially like to thank Ken for the respect always shown to me in decision making. Ken’s skills as a vet and the joint effort ensured another six good years for Louie that he would otherwise not have had. Thank you Ken for going above and beyond for Louie at the end and the compassion shown.

Louie absolutely loved life. It was a privilege to have him in mine. Every day made happier because he was with me. My privilege to share such a unique and special loving bond.

Heartfelt thanks

Charlie Haselden

Our beautiful brave boy. We loved you with all of our hearts, you were brave for such a long time. We miss your little ways like when you use to constantly scratch on the doors or bark at the smallest crumb of food. Your sister Skye had to leave before you, but you went and followed her to be together forever, We know why you both had to go but we would do anything to have you back. You have forever left your paw print on our hearts.
Thank you to all the staff at Rose Cottage especially Ken for all the support you have gave us for the loss of both of our dogs.

Skye Haselden

Our Skye had no choice but to leave us and we are all heartbroken. We would like to say thank you to Ken Robinson and all the staff for caring for her until the end.
Skye, you weren’t just a dog, you were part of our family. You were our little princess and our little ray of sunshine. You were Charlie’s cuddle buddy and even though you and Pixie fought, she misses you so much. You have left our lives but you will never leave our hearts. Good night, god bless.

1st September 2009 -21st November 2017

Loved by everyone who knew him. Gone far too soon. There were many battles along the way, but he took every chance Ken gave him. He used all of his nine lives and probably more. Many thanks to Ken and all the team at Rose Cottage.

Sebbie packed a lot of living into the time he had. Always fun to be with. He had a sense of humour and played with me as much as I did with him. He was a gentle peaceful cat, a creature of habit, and so easy to live with. He brought fun, laughter, happiness and joy into my life every day.

Thank you Sebbie for all those happy memories. You were the very best. xx

Always loving and loyal, Our best friend, never to be forgotten. Rest in peace.
Hogan was truly a family dog and a credit to the Staffordshire bull terrier breed.
Hogan died just a few days short of his 11th birthday. Hogan had been at the vets every month of his life for nearly eleven years yet it never got him down. At times it was really hard dealing with all of Hogan’s aliments. I couldn’t have done it without the help and advice from Jen Quayle. Jen gave Hogan a good quality of life and for that we are truly thankful. Hogan had his own way of doing things and it didn’t matter what you wanted him to do because it was always Hogan’s way which wasn’t a problem to us. One of the best memories I have of Hogan is that every morning he had to be fed at 6.30am every day of the week. One Sunday morning I over slept and woke up at 7am. Hogan followed me into the kitchen and sat there whilst I put his breakfast out for him. When I put his food down he looked at me as if to say what time do you call this. I eat at 6.30 not 7am. He then turned around and walked back to his bed and went back to sleep.
I know everyone’s pets are special to them but to me Hogan was my world and a dog in a million.
Hogan will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him but will never be forgotten.
RIP our best friend xxx.

Hogan 02/10/2004 – 09/09/2015

Seamus was gifted to us at six months of age, he'd been unwanted, a fluffy little chap full of mischief, a typical puppy who nipped at heels and chewed on anything he could get his little teeth into. He left us after 16 wonderful, loyal years. He was the happiest of dogs, full of character,
never grumbling whatever crisis he faced (and there were many). Ken Robinson's skill and loving care, together with the support of all the Rose Cottage staff, pulled him back from the brink on so many occasions. Everyone he met, including four legged ones, was greeted like a long lost friend with much tail wagging. We loved him so much and he is desperately missed, but he will never be forgotten because he left us with so many happy memories.

Henry Wallis (23/08/2003 - 03/08/2015)

Henry was more than a pet, he was our son, our brother and our friend. Everyone who knew him would agree, he was more human than canine. He was a unique character with antics that always brought a smile. He really was 'one in a million'. He will be greatly missed.
