We had to put our best friend, travel companion, protector and gentle soul, Heddy, down today. She was 14. Increasingly immobile, unable to do stairs and even to stand up on our slippery floors. At night, when her legs twitched involuntarily as she dreamed, we KNEW she was chasing her nemeses – mailmen and rabbits. Where she is now, they are less safe but she is happier.
No doubt, she is now spending her days barking at Liz’s father (and receiving cookies in return).
