They will not go quietly,
the dogs who've shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Our habits still make us think
we hear a barking at the door.
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet will still go round the
the food dish used to be,
And, sometimes, coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them...
and always will.
94 –September 02 (MacDhu’s Lady Morag Rosslyn)
was our first Westie and left us far to early in life. She
was the sweetest girl one could want. She raised some beautiful
pups. We had hoped that Morag would be given time to enjoy
retirement sunning herself on our property and running “Lucky” our
neighbours dog off her property, but unfortunately that wasn’t
to be. Morag always thought she was the boss, but really
she was just the loudest. Morag had her last litter of 2
girls and 1 boy in December 2001.
November 2003 – April 2004 (Dr. Drummond of GlenRoslin)
was a gorgeous puppy destined to do big things in the show
ring, However that was not to be. Due to the inquisitiveness
of the Scottie puppy, Drummond had a tragic accident and
died at the tender age of 6 months. Drummond was owned by
John and Bev of Peterborough and will be remembered always.
2002 – July 2004 (GlenRoslin’s
was born February 5, 2002 to Ch. Beinnein’s Abbee O
GlenRoslin (Abbee) x Ch. GlenRoslin’s Gordon For Me
(Gordie). She was co-owned by GlenRoslin by GlenRoslin
and Arlene & Gary
from Holstein, ON.
Bonnie gave birth to 4 beautiful puppies (3 girls and
one boy) on July 13, 2004 and on July 19th, took extremely
sick and even with the excellent care of Dr.
Omar Khan at the Emergency Clinic, could not be saved and
passed away leaving behind 4 orphaned puppies. Unfortunately
a week later, the little boy also died leaving the 3 girls
who survived and went on to become beautiful healthy puppies.
One puppy Gracie, lives with her grandmother and uncle in
Holstein, ON; another puppy went all the way to North Carolina
to live and the 3rd lives in Toronto, ON.
Jenny, January 2001 - (Lady Jenny of GlenRoslin)
was one of four puppies from Morag’s 3rd litter. Jenny
lived in sunny California with her family. Jenny was loved
so very much but one day tragically found her way under the
fence to the family swimming pool. Another baby who left
us way to early.
, March 2003 – May 2006 ( GlenRoslin’s Erin Isle)
killed by a truck May 7, 2006 at the young age of 3 -
Erin was born with a heart murmur but it didn’t keep
her from doing anything, she was a typical happy Scottie. Erin ’s
Mum Linda knew she had the murmur before ever taking her
home and had the chance to take a different puppy but chose
to love Erin because of her little defect not in spite of
it and love Erin she did. Erin was the pride of Linda’s
hometown in Newfoundland and traveled there many times in
her short life. Erin will be missed and lovingly remembered
by many both in Ontario and Newfoundland but none more than
her Mum Linda. Rest In Peace little Erin .
King of Norway (HACO)
– Although Haco (pictured left) was not owned by GlenRoslin, he owned a
piece of our hearts.He was a beautiful boy and forms a very
large part of the GlenRoslin line. Haco was lovingly
owned and cared for by Sheila and Pat Keenan of Stockaree Westies
in Whitby, ON. Haco
left us far too young at the tender age of 6.This was a tragic loss for all who loved
Haco. Haco will be remembered forever and will carry
on for GlenRoslin through his offspring; Higgins and Iona, and through his GlenRoslin grandchildren, Rebus,
Poppy and their offspring .
