Such a sad day for us.....

PIPPA.....


Our little Pippa was very to dear to us but sadly her time had come to leave us.....


Pippa went missing for 2 days which was so very hard to deal with....
She has never left home before, very unusual......
After leaving messages on many  Lost dog sites, letterbox drops and driving around the neighbourhood I received a phone call from the local Vet (they know her) to say a chap had found her and took her there....
I was so excited,  I couldn't get there quick enough but sadly she wasn't well and had experienced some sort of trauma and was very dehydrated....I was so happy to be with her but she needed to be on a drip overnight and then to see if she improved.....


Next morning the Vet rang to say her kidneys were failing and she wasn't doing very well at all.....
We agreed that it was time for us to say goodbye....a very hard decission to make but I didn't want her to suffer....
Just as they were bringing her to me she passed away quietly on her own....

Happy memories.....





My Mum would have been proud of me, she did love a tipple but I don't drink........
A good stiff whisky was needed at this time.....


Social media was wonderful and so many people sharing my post to help find our baby...
the response was amazing also the kind wishes were very comforting.....

Pippa....
