A word from Deb

Goodbye to my soulmate


I don’t know how to write these words but I’ve lost my soulmate. Billie was hit by a car last Friday.

She was my world, my everything, my joy, and she taught me about true unadulterated love, to a depth I never thought imaginable. I cannot begin to fathom the loss. 💔

Billie has been by my side for ten joyous years. We were a team, I took her everywhere, to work, film shoots, to Pilates, business appointments, lunches, dinners, weekends away, she was my shadow.

I feel her sole purpose in this world was to bring happiness and joy to people’s lives. Especially mine. Faces would light up with a smile as she’d walk past, dog lovers or not. She was a gift. Billie brought the best out in me and taught me to be a better person.

I got Billie after I lost my first brother Rod, as a way of somehow filling the hole. Not having had children, she was my child and I cherished every breathing moment of being with her. We shared an unbreakable bond through years of holding onto each other through life’s ups and downs.

With my saddest heart, I wanted you to know how lucky I was to have had the most beautiful, unconditional love from the purest of souls. #RIPBillie

    I am so sorry to hear you lost such a precious soul in your life . I have been through it and understand . We have lost dogs to old age and choices that had to be made but last year our wonderful Brittany was hit by a car . It was devastating . Grieve in the way you need to.
