Said goodbye to Ziggy today

Post by oldslapper »

10.5 years ago she was found abandoned outside the prison I was working in, just at the time we were thinking about getting a pooch.
Her quiet, fun but reassuring presence will be missed, she was family.
Age related dementia along with hearing loss led to a confusing world for her. She had started to lose strength and mobility in her hind legs along with pain.
Sad, but vet was clear her quality of life would continue to deteriorate.
Bye Ziggy you’re already missed.

So sorry to hear this mate, so very sad. The best thing was done for her after ten and a half wonderful years for this very lovely and lucky girl. Sleep tight Ziggy x

Thanks.
I think we were the lucky ones too. She’s helped our son and daughter get through some difficult times just through being there.

It's a difficult time especially with faithful uncomplicated pets who devote themselves to you.

Sorry to hear that - it's hard, isn't it. Thoughts with you and your family.
It's a bugger getting inside the horn when you've got the array supports in place, isn't it!

Thanks for the kind words.
It was strange waking up this morning without her here. It’s very quiet and there’s a noticeable hole in the in the home. Even though she wasn’t a noisy girl, just a lovely calm & comforting presence.

Hi Ken
Thanks, daughter left for uni last week, so it’s a very strange home now.
