Sad time

This week has been a difficult one for us!
Our grumpy awkward old faithful dog passed away.
She was at home with us, out in the sunshine all day when she finally fell asleep for the last time.

The children are devastated, they were all here with her at the end... it was a shock for them but we had prepared them for the fact she was very old and not as happy with life as she had been!
Her little legs no longer wanted to work and the long walks she loved had become a distant memory.
Her quality of life had gone and she needed peace bless her.
We have had her since she was a tiny pup, she came to work with me when she was small and enjoyed pulling flower heads of the bouquets when my back was turned.

I shall and do miss her x
Sleep well Cassie x

I am so sorry for you, it is something I dread for my own three dogs and send you lots of love! May your wonderful memories sustain you and yours love Annie xx

Thank you all so much, she will be missed and our home seems quiet without a dog... even the cats seem to know something odd is going off apart from Parsley who just seems to miss the chance of a bit of dog food!!

All the cats loved Cassie especially in Winter when she would let them snuggle up on her blankets x

I'm so sorry for your loss and the sadness of your children. It's no use people saying it's just a dog - it's so much more than that. Big hugs to you all xxx
