I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to share that a few weeks ago, I had to put Charlie to sleep.
He had a long list of medical problems, but had been doing really well up until the end when he became in pain. He died peacefully in my arms, and I miss him so much.
To focus on something positive, I did an online fundraiser in memory of him and in support of the Cocker And English Springer Spaniel Rescue. I raised US $1,218 (about £863), and I know you'll be able to put this to good use.
I will be looking to adopt again, but need some time to properly grieve Charlie and also recover from a recent operation. I hope to start looking again for a cocker spaniel near the end of November, beginning of December.
I've attached my favourite photo of Charlie and me.
