I’m so sorry. Keep in mind that you gave that dog a long happy life that it may not have otherwise had. I promise you he was grateful for every day.

I bet he went to dog heaven knowing he was wanted and loved Bill – our four legged faithful friends.

Oh nooo, so sorry Bill. You and your family will have given him the very best of lives, this is a certainty. Hope you are able to take comfort from that.

So very sorry for you all. You gave him a wonderful life and you were so lucky to have found each other. Hope you are ok. Sleep tight pal x.
