Sad news again I’m afraid. Yesterday, following a short but rather nasty illness, we had to let Alice go. After a period of increasing arthritis that spread to her lower spine which made it ever more difficult for her to stand up, let alone walk, her quality of life diminished rapidly. I like to think that following her hard early years on a ‘puppy farm’ she achieved some of the happiness she deserved in her later years in a loving home. Here are a few of my favourite images of her:

Sammy & Alice

Sammy & Alice

Alice and Sammy, (see more of Sammy here) her long time companion and partner in crime. And here are a few more of Alice at the beach shortly after Sammy left us, and finally a portrait taken in the garden for some long forgotten reason but a good image none the less :

YP - AliceIt is only to be hoped that she is now back with her Sammy, running through the long grass in the eternal hunt for celestial squirrels and rabbits!

She will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Goodnight Alice and God bless!

    What a beautiful girl, she reminds me of my Luca who died 2 years ago.

      Thank you for that. She will be sadly missed. Its the first time my house has been dog-less for 25 years. But the search for another deserving pooch will begin soon!
