UPDATE ON GILLY
Just a short note to let you know Gilly is fit and well and fitting in wonderfully well. She is full of fun and has really settled in now. She is still a frantic eater so we have to spread her food on a baking tray and watch her chase it round. She loves her tennis ball and even ignores treats just to chase it, she enjoys all her walks and knows how to nag when its time to go.
We are thrillled to bits with her and love her very much love Nige and Belin.
At the 2007
They went home with an armful of prizes which included one for being the "Happiest Worker" in the IRR First Timers Obedience class as well as being placed in the class. Her beautiful bright eyes and glossy black coat got her well placed in both the Shiniest Coat and Best Condition classes and she was an absolute credit to Nigel and Belinda in every way.
THE SADDEST OF NEWS
We knew that Gilly was poorly but were still all absolutely devastated to receive this message from Nigel:-
"We are so sorry to have to say that poor Gilly lost her battle with cancer yesterday (7.4.2010). She fought as long as she could and lived as happily as she could until we couldn't see her struggling to cope any longer.
She was a huge part of our family and we are finding it really difficult trying to cope without her. She gave us so much pleasure and enjoyed a great life until near the end. Gilly loved her food, her ball and her walks and, most of all, she loved us all.
We will spill tears for her for ever and a day. Thankyou for finding her for us and looking after her for us to love. We will remember her forever and will cherish her memory. There could never be another like Gilly (Gill Gill)."
Our hearts go out to Nigel, Belinda, Molly, Cleo and all the family. Rainbow Bridge will be a fun place now Gilly has arrived.
