Bye Bye Emma…

Our darling old bearded collie Emma had to be put to sleep today just short of her 17th birthday. We made the heartbreaking decision yesterday after a week of sad diagnosis and quickly failing health. She really was a wonderful companion, so happy and affectionate and we’ll miss her dearly.

The photo above shows Emma in a local pet store almost exactly a year ago, when her first diagnosis was made. She spent a happy hour in store watching the rabbits, guinea pigs and mice. We bought lots of treats and a fabulous furry, non-slip mat to sleep on and give her a helping hand on our slippy, stone floors
