Readers of this blog might have noticed our loving dog Bramble featuring in many photo's on my posts. She was constantly by my side in the garden and poly-tunnel, she was so loyal, loving and good natured. Sadly she had not been her normal self this past few months, mainly because of her age. Up until then she was so active, running around like a young puppy. She started to lose weight, lost her appetite and kept falling over and also had a few infections. She was 13 and did also have a sight heart problem.
It was with very heavy hearts that we decided to have her put down yesterday, our vet felt that her quality of life was suffering and that she was probably in pain, as she didn't leave her bed that much and was not eating a lot. It was a very hard decision to make just before Christmas, but we all felt it was the best decision for Bramble's sake.
We both miss her so much, I keep walking around the garden expecting her to follow me, she was always by our sides, a better companion you could never ever find.
She has now been laid to rest in the corner by the strawberry plants, her favourite garden snack. This is the first post I have written with tears in my eyes, rest in peace Bramble, you were a very special dog and loving friend.
