Hi,

With great sadnesses our Holly was pts this morning. She was a big part of our family and will be dearly missed by us all especially Buddy.

Holly loved life and loved everyone she knew and met and she was always by my side where ever we went on our journeys together. I could not make this journey with you Holly but you will always be in my thoughts, heart and by my side. Love you xxx

Thank you all very much for your kind words and support.

Holly lost her strength in her back end due to arthritis which contributed to her losing control of her bladder, which she already suffered from. Her mobility and desire to exercise was deminshing all the time. She became very sad and depressed the very oppersite to what she was really like. She lost the sparkle in her eyes and I knew it was time to ease her pain and suffering.

The joy dogs like Holly bring into our lives is wonderful but the pain of losing them is to great.

Thank you xxx

Thank you all.

We were so lucky to have Holly in our lives although we wish it could have been for longer. She was so funny and friendly and everyone who I see on our walks has been so upset about Holly passing as they all said what a wonderful dog she was.

Having Buddy and Holly changed my life more than I could ever say. I have gone through some difficult times in the last few years with my mental health conditions. Both Buddy and Holly have been my unofficial therapy dogs during this time. They got me out the house, I joined this forum because of them and I have met many people and made many friends because of them. I have done things I would have never have done because of them.

Today I am better than I have been in years and I am really positive about the future.i am like my old self and Holly helped get me here. I am sure she knew it was ok to leave me now as I will be ok.

Thank you Holly xxx
