Excuse my absence but it has been a pretty tough few weeks. Just 2 weeks after Mr Kitty’s death we had to make the heartbreaking decision to say goodbye to our much-loved dog, Harvey. He had been a part of the family for almost 15 years.
We had known for a couple of years that the day would come when we would have to make a decision to alleviate his suffering. When we came back from our holiday about a month ago, it was obvious that it would be cruel to prolong his life for much longer. His crippling arthritis had reduced his mobility to almost zero as well as heart failure.
Our kind and compassionate vet came to our home and Harvey was surrounded by those of us who loved him as he gently went to sleep for the last time.
We have wonderful memories of our special boy. Here are a couple of the last photos I took of him on Thursday morning.
