Sadly today we had to say goodbye to Ollie. Although not yet 11 he was starting to show signs of ageing with arthritis and he was having kidney problems. There numerous trips to the vets and we tried to keep him as active as possible but you could see he was becoming weary and lost his appetite. I was lucky to make contact with the emergency vets today just before they closed. I did not want Ollie to suffer. He passed away peacefully with me stroking his head.A tremendous loss of a loving dog so full of character.
