Darling Nicky

Tomorrow is the first anniversary of the death of our darling Nicky.
She was our third setter and tragicallyonly lived for seven years, dying from a brain tumour.
It has taken us a full year to recover but we are now on the lookout for another adult bitch.
Best wishes to Tony and thank you for the wonderful years we spent with Nicky.

Miles (Vermilions Treasure Island) [06/04/2003 - 12/29/2015]

Time marches on and the cycle of life completes with another loved one.

Miles, you blessed my life in so many different ways. You were a fantastic companion.

You are greatly missed already. It won't be the same without you.

When you get to 'the bridge', find your cousin Cedric and have him introduce you to your extended brothers and sisters. Tell everyone I love them.

She had previous gastropexy x2 in the past so I of course was so worried that her stomach had…
