RIP Reginald

I received very sad news yesterday.  My foster dog Reginald has been living in Hobart with his wonderful new mum Sandra and was recently diagnosed with a collapsed trachea.  The damage was down low and had caused him a lot of distress in the past, but yesterday morning he got really bad and he had to be helped on his way.  I can't tell you how much I loved him and his big eyes.  He was a truly beautiful natured dog, and I'm trying really hard to be positive.

  10. It is always sad when we lose a loved one...my thoughts are with you. Our loved 14 year old cat has not got long I don't think, but we are holing onto hope that she is going to use yet another of her lives and survive this also.
