Farewell Alfie

Anuvver dear dear pal has gone OTRB. On 28th May my dearest pal Alfie da Scottie aka @sjchocaholic. He was 12 yrs old last Septemba.

His fambly were movin house so were stayin wiv grampies and a few weeks ago Alfie got out and ran into the path of an oncoming car and was knocked ova. Luckily he didn't haf any broken bones, but was badly bruised and had to stay in da vets for a few days. He was improving quite well and his mum took him home a couple of days before dey woz due to move into dere new house.

The day before the move Alfie took a turn for da worse and his mum had to take him back to da vet, who kept him in overnight. The following morning, day afta da move, she had a phone call from da vet to say Alfie's condition had deteriorated and he wsa in pain. She rushed straight to da vet, she had stayed at Grampies to be near to Alfie.

Sadly Alfie was in pain and was suffering, his liver condition and pancreatitis had flared up again, and so he went OTRB at 12.30 in his mummies arms. I hazardin a guess wen me sez da shock ov da accident had probbly contributed to all dis happenin.

Needless to say his fambly woz devastated. And wen his mum bravely posted on Twitter to tell his farsands ov followers dat he had passed away Twitter went into meltdown.

Messages woz flying backwards and forwards, passin on da terrible sad news and messages ov condolence sent to his fambly and gallons of tears woz shed by so many.

Alfie was my furst fwend wen me first joined Twitter back in 2013, and we had remained special fwends eva since. He always called me 'Hot Stuff' and I called him my 'Ansom Beest' or 'Sexy Beest'.

Wen me got me waterproof onesie, and told him how fab it woz his mum got one made for him too. We looked fab in our onesies and after we got used to dem wore dem in bad wevva. I loved to see da pics ov him out in his camo onesie. He woz so ansum *swoons*

In January dis year, Alfie was seriously ill, and almost died. He needed extra scans an treatment an his mum and dad were struggling afta payin a lot ov vets fees already and didn't have da funds to cover da extra scans. So I set up a donation page for people to donate to help fund extra treatment. 49 people donated £1,000 in 2 days! Yes 2 days!

This saved Alfie's life. His pawrents arranged for his scan and extra treatment and dear Alfie recovered. We woz all ova da moon. I not takin any credit for dis, I jus arranged da donation page for peepul an anipals to give. It was all down to his Twitter fwends dat love him so much dat dey give up all dere nom pocket money and get dere pawrents to send it to help Alfie. Yoo iz all stars! Alfie's fambly woz so grateful dat he cud haf da life savin scan an treatment.

His fambly were lookin forward to movin to da seaside permanently, which is ware dey live now, as dey all loved da beach, especially Alfie. He adored da beach and always tweeted up pics ov his adventures dere.

It must hurt his pawrents now to walk along dat beach wivout him. Dere hearts must break. But Alfie is walkin beside dem, dey juz not see him is all.

I loved Alfie vewy much. We had a special relationship, but I know so many ov yoo loved him just as much as me did. He was and is and always will be a Twitter legend and Twitter won't be da same wivout him.

His pawrents are attendin his funeral dis week coming, I dunt know date yet or time but will let yoo all know so you can bow yoor heads and fink ov him and send strength to his pawrents. His mummy saw how peaceful me looked wen my muvver came to my funeral and so she wants to do da same for Alfie and say her last farewell. We, me an Alfie, and da ovver angel pals will be lookin down and sending love and strength to her.

I haz cried and cried since Alfie passed. I am happy dat we iz togevva wiv all our OTRB pals, and dat me an Alfie can snuggle up togevva ov an evenin in our cloud and chat about our lives on earth and our precious famblies, and we can watch over dem from da Bridge, but my heart is breakin for Alfie's fambly. I wish me cud make da hurtin stop for dem.

I sends my muvver regular signs dat me is ok and me is happy, and if Muvver feelin a big down me leaves a little feather for her to find, and she has told Alfie's muvver to keep an eye open for da same signs from Alfie. Cos he will be wiv his fambly foreva and eva juz like me iz wiv Muvver. Until we iz all togevva agen.

*wipes eye wif paw* ahem.... sowwy got sumfin in me eye agen.

We will all miss da wondfurful photos dat his mum posted on Twitter for us to see, and we fank her from da bottom ov our hearts for sharing dear Alfie wiv us all. So many photo's I not sure which one is my favwite I love dem all, and I can hold my paw on my heart an say dat Twitter will NEVA EVA be da same now wivout our darlin Alfie da Alfienator.

Time will heal Alfie's pawrents hearts, and time will change da terrible hurt dey feel now to a milder easier to manage pain, and sweet memories of happier times wiv Alfie. It won't happen quickly, Muvver still sheds tears for me and misses me like I only left her yesterday, but time will heal as it goes on. And as time passes and as new furpals take our place wiv our fambiles, we are not forgotten, we still live on in dere hearts, and we still around dem in spirit, and one day, one glorious happy day, we will all run free togevva, hoomans and anipals, reunited and surrounded by the greatest love imaginable, binding us all togevva foreva til enternity and beyond.

Please show yoor love for each ovver every minute yoo can, cos yoo neva know wen dat last dandelion seed floats away into heaven and yoo lose da chance to say dem special wurds or give one more hug. Life is fragile my fwends.

So say farewell to our darling fwend Alfie, who has left dis earthly life behind, and is free from pain and suffering and watchin ova yoo all. Close yoor eyes, can yoo feel da love he is sendin yoo? We boff sendin so much love to heal yoo sad hurtin hearts. Love is all dere iz. Share it and give it freely. It is everlasting.

I love yoo my fwends
