Karen has just taken Clover, the last of our four Border terriers to be put to sleep. We once had a pack of four.
Clover was born here and was thirteen years old. Over the last few months she's developed a neurological problem which has seen her become both deaf and almost blind. Then in the last week, she's become very doddery and lost the feeling in her back feet.
Its all very sad and very much the end of an era.

I know it's like losing a member of the family, I've been there and got the T shirt.
I really love my pets, but unfortunately they have a limited time with us humans.
13 years is a long time in terrier terms and I'm sure that every minute was enjoyed by her and you.
My commiserations and RIP Clover.
Martyn

Clover must have loved being part of that pack of people and dogs
Looks like a good life, a busy life, a well loved life.
It always hurts when they go after what seems too short a time to us.

Real sympathy Bodger and Kaz, and yes, I'm glad there are good memories to hang onto.

It's so painful when they go, and for small creatures they leave a huge hole in your life.

Looks like she had a great life with you though.

Tilly our lurcher isn't a happy bunny, she's obviously missing her long time companion too.
