Pikkie Stander

Our sweet little Jack Russel girl that gave us so much pleasure during your short lifetime of 4 years. The naughty little puppy that irritated all the big dogs at puppy school.
Our own little TV star that was a finalist in the Kyknet Kwela Family funnies TV show - so so sad. You were so brave that we did not even know you so very sick. You were the best!!

15 February 1999 - 7 November 2015 Words cannot describe the pain of losing you my precious girl. We had almost 17 amazing years together and each day, minute and second spent with you was a time of pure joy and happiness that I will cherish forever. I miss seeing your happy face and wagging tail in the mornings, and the way you would sneeze to get my attention during the day, and it's so hard knowing I will never again be able to tuck you up in your bed at night with a goodnight kiss. Run free my sweetheart xxx

Dune van den Heuvel

Our hearts are breaking once again at the loss of another very, very special Empangeni Dog Club Member, Dune van den Heuvel. Dune has been a loyal and loving friend and companion to his loving family for 10 wonderful years and he has been an integral part of the Club since he was a tiny pup. Most pups come into the Club for the first time as quiet shy animals slowly gaining in confidence. This was not the case with Dune! He bounced into the Club full of confidence raring to go and get on with business. Over the years we have seen him grow from puppyhood through to his senior years, and during those years he has left his lasting paw prints on the hearts of every single person who had the privilege of getting to know him. Dune's 'canine curriculum vita' was impressive. He excelled at obedience, quickly moving through every obedience level on offer till he reached the highest levels of advanced obedience possible. He obtained his KUSA 'Canine Good Citizen' certificate at a very early age, much to the delight of his devoted and dedicated Mom and handler, Robyn. He tackled agility with enthusiasm spending many, many happy Saturday afternoons chilling with family and friends on the field. He was a protector of note during protection training classes, yet he remained a gentle giant cuddling up to the 'villain' at the end of every lesson. Dune was a major attraction at displays, enthralling spectators with his brilliance and versatility, and his sheer beauty, gentle nature and his amazing character and sense of humour endeared him to so many! He has taken part in scenting and tracking and has been an ambassador of the Club at so many events, from educational School visits to fund raising functions for the SPCA and his performance as a canine model at the SPCA calendar launch functions will be remembered by all who attended over the past 3 years. Dune, you were loved and adored by so many people, but none more so than your doting and loving family. Our sincere and deepest condolences to Lynne, Larry, Robyn and Lauren on the loss of your precious boy! We feel and share your pain as you grieve for your beloved Dune. RIP and run pain free Big Boy! From the Committee, Empangeni Dog Club

Dune of Kinneret

My precious boy, or should I say “my precious grand dog” as Robs was your Mom and I was your Gran. I hate the fact that you are now a memory, I panic that the way you feel and smell will fade from my memory so I have caressed you so much and breathed the fragrance of you in so deeply so that you, as Kash is, are forever etched in my memory.You were this amazing, gentle, giant with the ability to get the softest face ever imaginable, those dancing eyebrows, when you decided to carry your bowl through to have your meal wherever we were (your takeaways we called it), the way you met me in the garage and took the empty water bottles out of the car door and carried them down for me, you fetched the newspaper each morning and did an amazing “Paddy Paws” proud dance with it. The way that you loved to flop over for a cuddle. How you announced when Robs woke up by coming ahead to tell me. Your obsession with the pool net. Your feather duster games with Lolly. You amused and entertained so many people with your counting and tricks and wonderful obedience. At 52 kgs, you just walked off the back of the bakkie into my arms, always trusting that I would always be there for you as you have always been been there for us. You had to endure so many operations and procedures in your lifetime but were always the calmest most trusting of patients. Whatever we asked of you, you gave with enthusiastic abundance and gentleness. To watch you lose the use of those hind legs has broken our hearts as we knew this day would come. You came to us as a young puppy and leave us as an old man, yet still it seems too soon. Forever would be too soon. How very lucky and privileged we have been to share your lifetime with you. My handsome gentle giant, I hope you are running now, and jumping, my boy, pain free, agile, happy and at peace. You have left an enormous hole in our hearts and our home that will never be filled. My beautiful nDuna, I know you know how much you were loved (I told you often enough)….there are no words to describe the pain of your loss.
