HEAD STUDY OF BILNETTS ACE OF DIAMONDS AGED 6 MONTHS

Bilnetts Ace of Diamonds

A TRIBUTE TO ACE SLIDESHOW

On 23rd March 2008 we found Ace paralysed, he was rushed to our vet, and then referred to a leading Orthopedic Vet. Ace was diagnosed with FCE. A condition we had never heard of, but we were told it was a Spinal Stroke, where a peice of cartlidge had lodged in the Spinal Cord, blocking all signals and nerves. Ace was kept at the Referral Clinic for 8 Days, in the hope he may recover. On 31st March we were told the devastating news that it was highly unlikely Ace would ever recover the use of his back legs, Also he would remain doubly incontinent.

We had to make the decision to give Ace Eternal rest.

Ace was only 13 months old.  

Prior to this Ace had a very promising show Career, winning his Show Certificate of Merit at 12 Months 10 Days old.

Bilnetts Ace of Diamonds

I will lend you for a while, a German Shepherd Pup, God said,
For you to love him while he lives and mourn for him when he's dead.

Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe one or three

But will you, 'til I call him back, take care of him for me.

He'll bring his charms to gladden you and (should his stay be brief)
you'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return

But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.

I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd's life's land I have chosen you.

Now will you give him all your love Nor think the labour vain,

Nor hate me when I come to take my GSD back again.

I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done,"
For all the joys this GSD will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.

We'll shelter him with tenderness we'll love him while we may

And for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay.

But should you call him back much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.

If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve

In memory of him we loved, to help us while we grieve,

When our faithful bundle departs this world of strife,

We'll have yet another GSD and love him all his life.

We will mourn the loss of Our Beautiful young boy all our days.

Ace will be remembered with unfailing love, he was a Joy in our lives, much too brief, but the memories will stay with us forever. Photo above shows Ace with his best friend Zapphire.

Goodbye Our Darling Boy, if love could have saved you, you would have never died.

As a tribute to our boy I will show the critiques he received. This was the hardest thing I have had to read, let alone type. But Thank you to all the judges who thought he was worthy of his awards.
