Goodbye Sweet Friend...

Hi my friends, this week I had to make the heartbreaking decision that every pet owner dreads and say goodbye to my Furry Hooligan. Over the last few months old age has been rapidly catching up with him and he was struggling at times with everyday life. But when a sore inflamed eye didn’t respond to treatment and large lumps appeared on his head and neck, I knew the time had come for me to let him go. I couldn’t put him through the trauma of surgery followed probably by a course of aggressive chemotherapy, which may have given him, at best, a few more months of life. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do but I know, in my heart, it was the right thing to do for my best friend and faithful cubbyhole companion. I will miss him more than words can ever say and the cubbyhole will never be the same without him. In his last few days, he seemed to lose his enthusiasm for life but not for food I hasten to add and after tucking into his breakfast, he did what he has done every day since he was a puppy, he clocked in at the cubbyhole, lay down on his favourite rug ready for a day of supervising, snoozing and snoring. He was a larger than life character, a chance his luck at every opportunity cheeky chappie and a very naughty hooligan on occasions but the gentlest sweetest soul at the same time and I will treasure forever all the precious memories of the happy times we spent together.

 Farewell Buddy
 my beautiful boy, you will live on in my heart always xxx
