Aunty Ingrid @NoCrybabyDoGs


After a long struggle with her health, Aunty Ingrid passed away earlier today. She and her doggy Daffy had always been kind to us, especially when Keely went to the Bridge, so we couldn’t let this sad occasion go by without saying something about our dear friend.

One thing that really struck a cord with us was that Aunty had a wonderful gift – she had a way with words. She touched many with her words and brought comfort to those who grieved. She is silenced now but the poems she wrote will forever speak to us.

And so it is with a mixture of sadness, pleasure and gratitude that we reproduce a couple of our favourite poems here. Efurrytime we read them, we will remember Ingrid. Rest in Peace, Aunty *soft paw* and sleep sweet in Rainbow’s light.


When Pepi @PepiSmartDog died, Aunty Ingrid adapted a religious poem for the Bridge and sent to it Michelle, Pepi’s mum. This is the poem:


For those who are wondering, Daffy will be welcomed into the home of the pawsome Aunty Dana @danapixie, where we know she will be loved and treasured for the rest of her days.

    I was so very moved by this it started me crying again & I realized how much Ingrid had insight to when writing that poem.
    Her loss was deep so many around her had passed but I hoped she realized all the love everyone had for her & she was never alone

    Thank you for this beautiful tribute to a wonderful furiend. I will miss Ingrid’s wit – she did have a way with words, and boy was she quick! She didn’t miss a thing on twitter-could jump into a convo & make efurryone laugh. Or she’d comfort a friend who was sick or sad, somehow I just thought she’d always be there…. Our hearts are broken because Ingrid has left us for now, but oh the joy that lives in our hearts because she called us her fureinds! God Speed Ingrid – I will always love and miss you!

    Aunty Ingrid and Daffy were lovely pals on Twitter, always so witty and funny. I loved Daffys Toy box and the funny conversations with @PinBallBob. Will miss them so much xxxx
