we lost a friend…

The house is very quiet today – the first time after more than 20 years with no dog. Belle had a short but very terminal illness – age only 6. We’re very sad…

    Bill,

    My deepest condolences. My heart goes out to you and Jane.

    Sincere condolances, Bill. Loss of a dog is the loss of a member of the family. Hang in there.

    Very sorry indeed to read this Bill. Recognise Belle I think as having starred in a number of your fine photos taken on various parts of the Cote. Guess you must have had some great times to remember.

    Can but echo Drew’s comments. We always had at least two dogs in the family years ago growing up with the parents & my 72 yr old mother still has two now. Have seen a few pass on – always v difficult times no matter what.

    Yours
    Mark (de Morey)

    Very sad to hear it, Bill. I consider myself lucky every day that my two pups haven’t had any major health problems. I’m not looking forward to the day like that you’ve just faced.

    Condolences and cheer,
    David
