There will be laughter and mischief in heaven tonight.

Digby lived by the adage " Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin ! ". He stood tall but this morning the grass grew taller . We will miss him.


  1. Run free, Digby, with a kiss upon your sweet shaggy head.

  2. Wilf and peoples,
    My friend Major just told me and my mom about Digby. We are so sorry for your loss. Puppy prayers and luv are heading your way.

    Woofs and Licks,
    Your new friend
    Maggie Mae

  3. I will miss him too. He was a character and a half. You and his brother got more time with him than you thought - it gives time to think and say goodbye and adjust....but I still chocked, just a tad.......

  4. Oh Angus! I am so sorry! My sincere condolences to you, the font and Wilf. Digby was a special little guy. My heart goes out to you!

  5. I am so sorry to hear about Digby. These are the cutest dogs ever.
    Cat Mandu

  6. One More Angel in heaven, one more star in the sky....
    We will miss woo, Digby!
    ~husky kisses~
    -Kira, Scampi and their Mom

  7. You gave Digby so much love that his life was filled with happiness. Although these past couple of weeks have been terribly hard, Digby had a life that many dogs dream of, surrounded by you, the Font, and Wilf.

    Run free and roll in the green grass of heaven, sweet Digby.

    I will be thinking of you and your family. Take care of each other as you grieve and find peace.

  8. Digby, Fawewell sweet Fwiend.
    You lived so well..I just wish it could have been longew, but just as we picked youw time and place..I'll nevew fowget you.
    Ouw love and condolences to youw Bwothew wilf , the Font and Angus

    I hope we get to meet in heaven some day
    love and smoochie kisses
    ASTA and mommi

  9. Run free sweet one.. Another angel in heaven gone far too early.. You are in our thoughts today.. Love Carol and GJ xx

  10. My heart is just broken for you this morning. It is always so difficult to say good-bye. But what a treasure you had in your lives. Thank you for giving Digby such a wonderful life and for giving him so much love and dignity at the end. My heart is with you all. Run free, sweet Digby.


  11. We hold you all and Digby close in our hearts. These words have helped us during some real hard times; perhaps you too.

    As long as you remember me,
    my love will fill your heart
    and help to ease the sorrow that you feel while we're apart.
    With thoughts of me,
    perhaps you'll see the wonder of each day,
    the joy of sunlit afternoons,
    and nature's grand display.

    As long as you remember me,
    I always will be near
    to lend you sweet tranquility
    as nighttime stars appear.
    The bond that we have shared will link from me to you
    to give you hope for brighter days and strength to see you through.

    With love, love and more love,
    Cheyanne and her family

  12. So sorry for your loss.

    Sam and Pippen and their mom.

  13. We are at a loss for words. A total loss. Our heart breaks for you ... and we wish we could wipe away some of the pain. What a sweet sweet dog we came to know, for too short a period of time. Once again we are reminded of the amazing love that one of God's furry creatures can bring to so many. We find solace only in knowing that today Digby romps with Jackson, greeting each other at the Bridge, running free with the wind, sending love on the breezes.

    Through tears and with love,
    Jake and Fergi, Sally and Nina

  14. What a fortunate little dog Digby was to have such caring and loving humans. All the best.

  15. Angus, I knew this day would come soon, but I was so dreading seeing it down in black and white. My heart aches for you, the Font, the boys and especially for Wilf.

    Digby was such a fortunate little guy to have such a loving family who loved him, cared for him and kept his dignity intact.

    Run free sweet Digby and if you see a goofy Chocolate Lab waiting for you at the bridge, give him a big old snoof from the Rocky Creek Gang.

    My love and prayers surround you,

  16. Run free, Digby. I didn't even know you, and I'm going to miss you too -- but not nearly as much as your family does.

    Dear Angus, Font, and family, sending hugs and prayers to you all from California. May you have some small amount of comfort from knowing that dog lovers all over the world are thinking of you today and wish they could ease your pain.

  17. For all, the struggle comes to an end sooner or later. Digby may be gone, but he will never be forgotten, not even by those of us who only knew him via your wonderfully vivid blog. He blessed your lives and you gave much in return. Extra cuddles to Wilf - I hope he is not too lonely.
    Lots of love,
    Gail and Bertie.

  18. We will miss him too. Just because we were prepared for the journey to end doesn't make it any easier.

    You may not have met one of our wirey pals, Jackson from the UK. Unlike Digby, he has been fighting serious ailments for the last few years. Well, he too decided it was time to go last night -- and we hope he and Digby share their laughter and mischief together as they become whole again over the Bridge.

    Angus, our hearts ache for and with you and the font and Wilf.

    xxxxx Joan, Jake, and Just Harry

  19. I am so very sorry, Angus.
    I have written something for Digby on my blog.
    I do so wish I could do more.
    Pamela, and Edward

  20. Such sad news to wake up to. Sending hugs your way. Goodbye sweet, Digby. Rest well. ♥♥♥

  21. His life was great, and so was his fight. We didn't get the pleasure of getting to meet you dear friend, but we know that there are angels celebrating in heaven for you are there to give them sweet kisses.

    Run free dear Digby. And when you see our beloved Tookie waiting at the Bridge, please give him a big smooch for all of us.

    Stella, Gunther and Betty

  22. Oh Angus. Tears this morning for the loss of your wee lad who's adventures and trials you kindly shared with us. We will never forget brave and sweet Digby. He will remain in all our hearts forever.

  23. Pamela and Edward sent me your way- Digby was a little prince, I send Wilf much sympathy, he will suffer perhaps more than all. I am glad you have Wilf to ease some of this loss. pgt

  24. As my tears fall all I can say is Rest In Peace, Digby.... Our thoughts and prayers are with the ones left behind. But know that Digby will be running and playing today, waiting for you at the Rainbow's Bridge.

  25. Digby, i cry as though you are one of "the farm".

    THANK YOU for letting me share your amazing life adventures all this time. It is heartbreaking to know you won't be out there causing trouble with your goofy brother.

    Angus, Font, you let him decide and to me that proves you two are wonderfully caring people.

    Wilf, this will be difficult for you buddy but your people will be there to hold you& give you tons of love. (When Monte lost his litter mate by tragedy years ago he was "lost" for a long time.... but he pulled through with our love and you will do the same.)

    HUGE hugs your way, hope you can feel them, head to the "dog farm" whenever you feel like it.

  26. I am so sorry for your loss.
    Love, Joni

  27. As much as we hoped this day wouldn't come, we see that sadly, it has. We know Digby is romping in Heaven, giving his shaggy head a quick shake, a little puzzled as to how young and healthy he feels...then accepting quickly he takes off for a run among the flowers...

    It is a beautiful day here in Pittsburgh. We intend to take a walk and reflect on the lives of Digby and Jackson, whom we also lost today.

    We lost, but Heaven gained both...

    Run free, dear Digby...we love you!

    Scruffy, Lacie, Stanny and Marilyn

  28. So sorry to hear of your loss. Now you have an angel on your side forever. Bless you and your family.


  29. I came here from House of Edward....My heart lurches with the pain you must be feeling today.....I am so sorry for your loss...It hurts me to know how you must be feeling...Blessings to you...and to Digby.

  30. Although we knew it was coming, it is still the shock when we sit it -

    He'll have some great company in the name of Jackson the WFT who also put up quite a fight before crossing in his sleep last night/this morning-

    We've also lost Lena Horne - another fighter in her own time -

    For some reason as I started this comment, I began to hear the voice of Frank Sinatra -

    And I believe I see Digby nodding in agreement that "I did it my way" -

    We'll be looking to the sky tonight to see two new stars - it is exceptionally clear here today so tonight's sky will be incredible -

    Khyra & Her Mom Phyll
    PeeEssWoo: An extra big hug to Wilf...

  31. Digby will always be with you, in your hearts and memories. You may think you see him, out of the corner of your eye, in his favorite spot, just going down the stair - he's now a part of you that will be there always.

  32. Digby put up the good fight. Now he can run free with no more battles to endure. Godspeed, sweet boy.

    Hugs and Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  33. So sorry for your loss!


  34. Oh I am so sorry that it had to come to this, I really am. My heart goes out to Wilf, the font and you, Angus. RIP Little Digby. Sue x

  35. oh Digby, we were one tough kiddo. you fought the good fight. now there is a bright star in the sky. we will think of you when we look towards heaven. rest easy, little friend.

    we're sorry for your loss, Wilf and Angus and the font. we're glad that Digby gave you enough time to say goodbye. we hope that you can find some comfort in the pages of this blog and all of you wonderful memories.

  37. We are so sorry for your Loss...

    You are in our thoughts & prayers...What a brave fight Digby gave & you fought right along with him...

    Run Free, Sweet Digby...We will miss you...

    We Love You All,
    Abby & her Mom xxxxxxoooooo

  38. OH Digby. We are without words now that you have left. We kept putting off dropping by this morning. Now we know why. To you, the "font" and dear Wilf, we will keep you in our hearts as you grieve Digby's passing. When you give your heart to a dog to tear.....
    They leave holes in our hearts, but oh what they give while they are here. We hope that looking back on the last 9 years will bring you smiles and memories full of the joy he brought. This is an intensley personal journey you shared. Thank you. Run with the wind dear Digby. Perhaps you have already met Jackson WFT who was another valient fighter. We hope you meet our Shamus who is but a 9 month old puppy who will love to play ball with you. And countless other well loved dogs who have preceeded you to heaven.
    This poem is one I put up for Shamus, perhaps it applies to Digby too....
    I got to the gate of Heaven today
    after we said goodbye.
    I began to miss you terribly
    because I heard you cry.
    Suddenly ther was an Angel
    and she asked me to enter Heaven's gate.
    I asked her if I could stay outside
    for someone who would be late.
    "I wouldn't make much noise you see.
    I wouldn't bark or howl.
    I'd only sit here patiently and play with my tennis ball."
    The angel said I could stay right there
    And wait for you to come.
    Because Heaven wouldn't be Heaven,
    if I went in alone.
    You take your time, but keep me in your heart.
    Because Heaven won't be Heaven,
    without you to warm my heart.
    I know Digby will stay in your hearts. I am so very sorry. Dear Wilf, in time you too will heal and realize he is gone from here, but you need not search for him. Gone from your sight for now, just for now. As Kyhra said, Digby did it his way. Digby with the heart the size of Texas.
    Angus you and the "font" did such a wonderful job with such an awful journey. I wish I had words to make some of the hurt go away. Well done. Very well done.
    ((((((((Sad Hugs))))))))))

    Woofs, Purrs and Hugs,
    From everyone at The Poupounette

  42. We are soooo, soooo sorry! Digby put up a tremendous fight, as did our pal Jackson! We hope they arrived together at the Rainbow Bridge paw in paw and will play with all our buddies who arrived there before them. Run free, Digby!

    Penny & Patches

  43. We are so sorry to read this. You made his years on earth happy ones and he has left many happy memories for you. Purrs, tail wags and hugs.

  44. Angus, I know that no words can take away the sting of the loss of your precious Digby. Just know that I'm so very, very sorry!! I will light a candle for Digby to help him find his way to the place where he can stir up mischief and laughter and wait for you, the Font and Wilf to someday join him.

    ~~He was born a dog and left a gentleman~

  45. We are so sorry to read about the sad news. Reading through your previous posts showed that Digby did live a fun and loved life and this matters a lot. We are also grateful that because of him, we have found you and your friendship.

    We will constantly read about the memories he has left behind and we keep our paws crossed for you and your family.

    Run free at the Rainbow Bridge and watch over Wilf and your family from heaven.

    - Fudgie, Princess, Frappie, Mocha, Sugar, Wai-Pai, Wai-Max & the Piappies

  50. It is a sad day indeed. We share the weight of your loss, just as we do with all of our friends who leave for the Rainbow Bridge. Our thoughts are with you. When I lost my boy Devo to cancer at age 10, I struggled to understand how God could let this happen. This poem counter-balanced some of the questions in my mind.

    God saw you were getting tired
    and a cure was not to be.
    so he put his arms around you,
    and whispered "Come with Me"
    With tear filled eyes I watched
    you suffer and fade away.
    Although I loved you deeply
    I could not make you stay.
    A precious heart stopped beating,
    my beautiful boy put to rest.
    God broke my heart prove to me
    > He only takes the best <

  51. We are so sorry to hear that Digby has gone to the Bridge. We send comforting purrs to all of you who are missing him so very much...

  52. I've been hoping your brave boy would pull free Digby...xx

  53. Oh Angus!
    I am so, so sad for you and your family! I know your heart is breaking. You were wonderful to dear dog could ask for more!
    I am sending you all lots of love and warmth.
    "There's one more angel in heaven,
    There's one more star in the sky,
    Digby we'll never forget you,
    It's tough but we gonna get by!"
    Our sincerest condolences!
    With love

  54. We didn't really know you Digby, but we bet you are having fun over the bridge. Gentle headbutts and purrs for you family.

  55. So, so sorry about your loss.

  56. Wilf, Agnus, Font, The boys
    There will be a bright star in the sky tonight for a little white polish, Scottish, Italian, French dog. Digby captured many hearts and will be remembered fondly.
    Run free Digby you will be missed by many.

  57. How lucky you were to have him in your lives, to be able to bring him home and to let him feel the sunshine in his last days. Digby was also a pretty lucky dog to have you guys. We are all thinking of you.

  58. Oh how sorry we are - we only knew Digby for a short time, but in that time, found that he had such a huge heart. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family and Wilf. Rest in Peace, Digby.
    Hugs xo
    Sammie and family

  71. Run free at the Bridge, sweet Digby .... Gentle purrs to your family.

  72. We are so sorry, and will really miss Digby too.

    Love from Riley and Riley's mum

  73. Digby will always have a special place in your heart. He will be there forever.

  74. We are so incredibly sorry for your loss, but love how you have shared the spirit of Digby with all of us. We have crossed our paws and asked members of The Herd at the Bridge to welcome Digby.

  75. Shedding tears for you all from way down here in New Zealand... Digby is loved all over the world. Just shattered to hear he has gone, the ticks won, and, as a vet, totally frustrated that it had to be this way.
    This must be so hard for you. You must be so drained.
    May you savour the memories of Digby and hug Wilf closer.

  76. Dear Angus, the Font, and wilf,
    As the day has gone on, many have posted on the loss of Digby and Jackson as well. Not only myself but others. Like ripples in a pond as the news of dear Digby's & Jackson's passing spread more and more posts were dedicated.
    If you read only one, Petey's is my very favorite. Petey put into words what I was seeing in my head. So much so that I added a link on my post. I hope if you decide to read some of them, they bring you some smiles.
    We remain grateful to your courage in sharing this journey with us. Please take care of yourselves as the mental and physical fatigue has reached epic proportions I am sure. It is sometimes a huge shock to the system when the fight ends and one is left feeling without a purpose, as that purpose has been the fight for so many days, weeks. This I know from my own experience as well as observing it in families. Rest, knowing y'all did the very best job that could possibly be done.
    Hugs to all of you, a big hug to Wilf. We hope it is ok if we still stop by your gate to visit. We have grown to love not just Digby, but all of you.
    Here is the link for Petey's blog.
    God Bless & Well done

  77. My sisters and I are so very sorry to hear about sweet Digby. Because you shared Digby with all of us well will remember that sweet soul forever.

  78. My heart was touched by the beautiful Digby. My angel brother Braise will surely take him under his wing.
    We are so sad for you, but we are happy Digby has moved on to his new life without the pain.
    Huge hugs,
    Lots of love.

  79. "Il ne faut pas pleurer parc que cela n'est plus, il faut se réjouir parce que cela a été"
    Cry not that it is no more but rejoice that it once was.

    I am so sorry.

    Hugs to you all. Angus ,thank-you for sharing your lives.Wilf we look forward to continuing to share yours as you heal from this loss.
    The following was posted on the Col.Potter blog, written by an unknown author. Would like to share it. Fay & family

    Dedicated to all who have loved and lost a companion animal


    To have loved and then said farewell is better than to have never
    loved at all.

    For all of the times that you stooped and touched my head, fed me my
    favorite treat and returned the love that I so unconditionally gave
    to you. For the care that you gave to me so unselfishly. For all of
    these things I am grateful and thankful. I ask that you grieve not
    for the loss but rejoice in the fact that we lived, loved and touched
    each others lives.

    My life was fuller because you were there, not as owner, but as my
    friend. Today, I am as I was in my youth. The grass is always green,
    butterflies flit among the flowers and the sun shines gently down
    upon all of God's creatures. I can run, jump and play and do all of
    the things that I did in my youth. There is no sickness, no aching
    joints and no regrets and no aging. We await the arrival of our
    lifelong companions and know that togetherness is forever. You live
    in our hearts as we do in yours. Companions such as you are very rare
    and unique.

    For love never really dies, and you are loved and missed as surely as
    we are.

    They whom we love and lose are no longer where they were before.
    They are now wherever we are.

  83. tears are falling in california, so sorry
    Hugs to you all. Fay & family

  84. Sending soft woofies kisses to all of you there and especially to Wilf. I am glad to have known about Digby here on earth, thanks so much for sharing his life with us. He will live on in our hearts forever.

  95. Tonight when I look into the clear sky over Michigan I will look for a bright and new star - one with a little mischief in its eye - one that sails through the deep blue expanse with a little bounce now and then - crisp and shining and new.

    Digby, you lived with such happiness and you died with such grace. You will be dearly missed because you were so dearly loved.

  104. I'm so so sorry to hear this! I feel like I've lost one of my own. He put up such a valiant fight. You did all you could for him and loved him right to the end. Sending you all hugs! Pass on extra pats to Wilf.

    Hugs and wags!

    Mr. Nubbin' and family.

  105. We are so sorry for your loss!!! Digby was a special boy!! He will be dearly missed! Rest in peace Digby and Run Free!!

    Woofs, purrs and prayers,

  106. Fly free and fearless...just as you lived, dear Digby.

    And God asked the canine spirit
    Are you ready to come home?
    Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
    And, as a dog, you know I am most able
    To decide anything for myself.

    Are you coming then? asked God.
    Soon, replied the whiskered angel
    But I must come slowly
    For my human friends are troubled
    For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

    But don't they understand? asked God
    That you'll never leave them?
    That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
    That nothing is created or destroyed?
    It just is....forever and ever and ever.

    Eventually they will understand,
    Replied the glorious dog
    For I will whisper into their hearts
    That I am always with them
    I just am....forever and ever and ever.

  107. Our hearts are with you today.
    Bonnie and the support staff

  108. I've arrived here from The House of Edward blog to offer my deep and sincere sympathy for the loss of your precious Digby. John Lame Deer, Rosebud Lakota says: "Love is something that you can leave behind when you die--it's that powerful." But you already know this.

    Happy trails, Digby until you all meet again.

  109. I'm so sorry about your loss. We were rooting for Digby to fight through, and wow, did he fight. But it seemed heaven needed one more angel tonight. No doubt Angel Digby is watching over you from heaven. My Angel T-man should be there to meet him at the bridge. Big hugs for you, the font and Wilf.

    Teddy, CC-man, Angel T-man and their mom

  110. Run over the bridge to meet your pals:
    Java, snickers, Puffy, our Ryan and with all of them forever now...
    We are so very sorry Angus and Wilf..
    Love, Nancy & critters

  111. Angus: We were saddened to hear about Digby passing away. He seemed to be quite the character. And very independent from his adventure downstairs that one morning. From one independent soul to another I can understand his need to head downstairs. I know that you are all sad right now, but soon you will be able to think of Digby in only happiness.
    Love Marlene & Sable

  112. He was a wonderful dog and he had great parents who loved him and he enjoyed his life, that's about all anyone can ask.

  113. I know your hearts are broken, and I am so sad for you.

  114. I have read your blog for a while, and I want you
    to know that I am so sorry for your loss.
    Digby will be greatly missed.

  118. Hello Angus, Wilf & family ~ I have come over from Pamela Terry's blog to let you know that my heart is so saddened for your loss. What a marvelous woofer your Digby was!! And what a struggle you have all had in these last days - never, ever easy, this damn road of letting go...

    It is near midnight here in the Pacific Northwest of USA but tomorrow me & my dawg will run & bark, play some frisbee and then take a 'time out,' a quiet few moments to honor Digby...a fellow canine deeply loved by his humans...

    Warm regards from your friends,
    Christi & Isla(dawg)

    I'm so sorry we have lost a special soul on this earth. However, I know his spirit lives on, amongst all canines and hoomans he had touched. He will be talked about, celebrated, but never forgotten.
