2015 January Home Page
Welcome to another year - full of hope, challanges and dreams.
Well 2015 wasn't a kind start for us. On January 1st, Gypsy kept falling over and had been on and off her food for a bit.
After much discussion with Gai it was decided to see how she would be the next day, but the tough decision had to be made -
who were we keeping her alive for ?. We'd taken to carrying her out the door to the garden for toilet duties sometimes,
and really all she was doing was a bit of eating and a lot of sleeping. She'd gone from 3 tins of food a day down to 2
on good days and didn't appear to be drinking as much water either.
So on January 2nd, an appointment was made for 3.30pm with the vet. Now this was one of the toughest things we have
ever had to do. She was so good driving there and very good at the vets. They were very compassionate and caring and I
was allowed to spend as much time with her as required.
We now have her ashes at home with us, where she is still a part of our lives. We look around when we see a shadow, hear
a funny noise or at tea time, especially when the prawns and raw chicken come out. She could hear the sound of glad wrap
coming off a plate even when she was fast asleep. R.I.P. little girl and thank you for the wonderful 22 years you have
given us. Gai & I miss you daily.
