Very sad news last night. Mum rang to say was Belle was very ill and they were taking her to the vets. She couldn’t move and might have to be put to sleep – which she was. I’m so glad Mum & Dad were able to be with her at the end. She was nearly 14 and we’ve known for a while she wouldn’t last much longer. Sounds like she may have broken or damaged her spine so much she couldn’t get up. Poor girl. She was a great friend. At least now we don’t have to worry if she’s in pain and suffering. It’s a bit strange being home and seeing her bed all empty – she spent most of the day lying on it in the scrapbook room. It will be worse when I go to do some scrapbooking.
