When we lived in the States, we adopted a Chow/Keeshond cross rescued by the American Humane Society from the 29th floor of a Miami condominium and where she had been caged for nearly a year. She was agoraphobic when she came to us.

She lived with us in South Florida and defended us from the hateful iguanas until we retired to the UK ten years ago. Naturally, our daughter came with us (her ticket cost a lot more than ours!) and enjoyed a more temperate climate until she developed dementia at the age of fourteen - not bad for a largish dog. We had her put down four years ago but there remains a huge hole in our lives and whilst the pain diminishes with time, the sorrow never passes.

I am crying as I write this so Colin, I really understand what you must be feeling. You have my sympathy.

Thank you Baggy

Yes he did make the age of sixteen. Which is very good for a border collie. 95 in human years and the good thing I can take away from this is that he died at home peacefully.
Thank you
Colin

Sorry to read about your loss, Colin. 16(95) is a bloody good age, a credit to your love and care. Allow time to heal the hurt. Maybe another companion one day?
