Dear Bertie the Spaniel
Wednesday, 20 June 2012 00:00
Sadly dear Bertie the Spaniel left us yesterday. A very old boy, whom we rescued a while back and who delighted us with his energy and enthusiasm for life. I took him out the night before for his last favourite pork scratchings in the pub, but it was a struggle for him. I held him yesterday as he crossed over to the Elysian Fields, and noble beast that he was, he passed without a murmer. No doubt he is now skipping across the fields like a puppy again, all the pain just a distant memory. It is not beyond my range of belief that one day we will be reunited.
