Regular readers will know that Liz over in Lexington, Kentucky had two dogs, Charlie and Dulcie, who have appeared here occasionally.
In her email to me last Friday Liz wrote…Sadly Charley is going downhill. I have been lucky to have him live another year after being being diagnosed with congestive heart failure in March 2017. So enjoying Charley while I have him is precious time.
He’s seen here back in January 2016 enjoying sofa flying.
Sadly Charley collapsed over last weekend and Liz took him to the emergency vet to be put to sleep.
Yesterday Liz wrote in her email…It’s empty without him. Poor Dulcie is bewildered. She wouldn’t walk round the park with me this morning and she’s been curled up in a chair most of the day. She can’t be an only dog, which Charley loved, for long.
Earlier today Liz’s email said…Poor Dulcie has been so out of sorts that I took her to the humane society this morning and put a hold on a ten month old black terrier-mix pup. Think we’ll call her Sophie. Here she is getting acquainted with Dulcie.
My mum always said that we should remember our pets with fondness and a smile, which I’m sure Liz will do with much loved and missed Charley.
