Friday - a very sad day

 Tilly was not looking at all well this morning, although she did want to go out for a walkies, Jim could see she was really struggling so it was just a short one. Her poor old body had just had enough, so we all went to The Vets and said our goodbyes. So sad that she missed her 15th birthday by 3 days.
Tilly as a puppy in Leicestershire playing with Charlie Pointer and Big Dog, an old toy of Nicks that he gave to her. She actually moved to Cornwall at 14 weeks when her vaccinations were complete, but we had to go back and forth for another couple of months, until the house was sold. 
She had a wonderful life down here and made many friends, we'll miss her.

  1. So sorry to hear your sad news - Your Tilly had the very best life a dog could ever wish for - living so close to the coast and all the lovely walks she had with you both - she was a lucky girl and you were lucky to have had her for nearly 15 years - sending big hugs, so many of your readers will know and understand just how you're feeling right now xx

    1. Many thanks - we knew it had to happen soon, but right in the middle of the chaos of selling Oamaru and my knee problems it's just a horrible week. Sue

    1. Thanks Betty - she'd done so well, but it really was for the best in the end. Hopefully my knee might improve in the next couple of days as the swelling goes down, but I won't hold my breath. Sue

    1. Many thanks - she was a very sweet dog and made so many friends - especially in her little red jumper. Wooster seems to be coping OK so far, but he's never lived by himself. Sue

    1. Yes, it seems strange not to be almost falling over her as she had got very clingy and was always close by. But it was an exceptional age for a Pointer so her life in Cornwall had obviously suited her. Wooster seems OK so far. Sue
