spirit - downWith heavy hearts we had to bid a tearful farewell to our border collie, Spirit recently. She collapsed in our back garden and we rushed her to the emergency vets, knowing we would not be bringing her home. Thank you to our neighbour Andrea for helping to get her in and out of the car.
She apparently had a tumour on her spleen which had burst. There was no option but to put her painlessly to sleep.
I trained her 12 years ago to platinum standard in Good Citizens and John really bonded with her in later years.
She adored the cats, both our own and Rescue and she always kept the spaniels in check.
She was a firm favourite with our visitors and enjoyed getting a fuss from them all.
RIP our sweet girl. There will never be another quite like you.
