Joan and I are very sad,in fact,devastated.Our young cat ,Sam ,got hit by a car and killed yesterday morning.Luckily it was my son who found him.He was just a year old and saved my sanity after my sister's death a year ago.Joan and I suspected he was leaving our garden(over the back wall and gardens ) but a cat is a cat.He had a lovely life with us and our life won't be the same without him.

Sadly we lost Ellie this morning.
She hasn't been well for some time but nothing specific, apart from her horrible cysts.
Last night she became really ill and the vet tried to save her .This morning it was clear there was no hope.
A dearly beloved dog that we miss so much.…Continue

welcome to the site. I think it is a lovely one, all like minded people. I am hoping to get a puppy next year, I have a setter already called Mia. Can't wait. x
What a gorgeous little man arthur is, you have taken some lovely photos of him. He sounds as if he is settling in lovely.
Thank you for you kind thoughts on my Jasmine, and I am so pleased to hear about your friends wee dog, I see you too have a Jingles baby, I have one here, he is a lovely dog but his mother is a bit of a live wire, and so is he, good luck with yours, I am sure that with a Thendara mother yours will be calmer...will you be showing Arthur???
Thanks again for your comment and for your thoughts, Dee and the gang
These Jingle babies are definitely head strong, I think that mine is part Kangaroo he spends more time on his hind legs than all four, do try and get some shows, if you go to a ringcraft class then you may well meet someone that you could travel to shows with, up here we tend to double up, but we don't handle each others dogs, just in case we have to judge...
And as far as Fred is concerned, he just had Irish way of looking at the world, (I am part Irish, so can say this) he just loves life and that is all that counts.
Thanks for the thoughts on Jas, she seems to be doing well at the moment, so fingers crossed.

ps start practising with Arthur
I've just read about Ellie and can understand how worried you are. I hope it is not as bad as feared and that the vet will find a way to help her.
Wishing you all the best
