We went a visiting my mum and dad this last week because it was half term.
This is something we often do, we visit my mum and dad and my two sisters Vicky & Polly and one of my sisters’ fella Chris and their little girl Gwen who just turned two.
We also always see my mum and dad’s dogs, Tilly and Barney.
Tilly was an amazing 16.5 which if you multiplied by 7 would make her a whopping (quickly gets calculator out) 115 years old in dog years, Barney is only 11.
Sadly on Thursday (our last day down there) when we woke up it was obvious that something wasn’t quite right with Tilly, she had been deaf for a good few years and she also had cataracts so could only see shapes in very good light, but having said that she still ran around and played in the mornings and ate like a trouper.
Thursday morning she mostly stayed in her box, she wasn’t interested in food and her breathing was obviously causing a lot of trouble. She couldn’t relax and she was more confused than normal, so sadly my mum phoned the VET’s to come for a home visit to check her out.
We left to drive home at this point and as we were just getting into the car, we saw the two lady VET’s arrive.
Mum told me that they had said, Tilly’s heart was failing and that she wouldn’t of lasted the night so the kindest thing to do was to put her to sleep, so that’s what happened.
My dad buried her in the garden wrapped up in her blanket under the apricot tree.
Barney apparently did give his little friend a sniff whilst they wrapped her up, so i guess he said goodbye.
bye bye Tilly,
hope you had a good one, it was nice knowing you.

At the last wedding I photographed (here), the lovely couple had selected an image from their engagement session and I asked a friend of mine Sam Hook (who happens to be a picture framer) to mount the image in a signing frame so that all the guests could write a message to them.
It looked lovely with all the messages written on it and i’m sure will bring them lots of enjoyment in years to come.
