Bertie the Diplomatic Dog
A few weeks ago Wendy contacted me and asked me to share Bertie. Isn't he stunning?
Bertie had just crossed the Rainbow Bridge, and Wendy wanted to share all his wonderful attributes.
She and her family adopted this Jack Russell mix from an RSPCA in the United Kingdom, and all of Bertie's pictures featured here were taken in Scotland.
Bertie had quite the life! He loved playing on the beach, even though he was afraid of the ocean.
He loved adventures and went with Wendy and her family on long mountain hikes and trails.
He even enjoyed the snow, and it's a good thing he did because look at all this snow!
Bertie was both "mischievous" and "very affectionate," to quote Wendy. What a wonderful combination in a pet.
Wendy chronicled some of Bertie's life in a blog called Diplomatic Dog. You definitely need to check it out. Her photography is phenomenal and her subject is a doggie supermodel if ever there was one. All of the pictures above link back to her blog; all you have to do is click on any image.
Bertie enjoyed life to the fullest, and he passed away quietly and without pain when his heart just stopped beating. Wendy's heart is too big to ignore other dogs in need of homes, and so although she knows there is no replacement for Bertie, she has found another dog in need. You can read about it on her blog.
Wendy thank you so much for sharing your story with us and for sharing Bertie with the world. We hope you will keep us up to date as your household grows via another furbaby, and our thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn Bertie's loss. Still, just look at the beautiful life you gave him!
