It is with great sadness that our Springer Tammy had to be put-to-sleep yesterday.
She had been abandoned after a traffic accident with a shattered front leg. We picked her up from the vet who had pinned her leg back together again on the 10th December 2002. The intention was to foster her until she was fit enough to be rehomed. Within days, she had stolen the heart of our dog Jasper and our hearts followed – so we adopted her.
Once her leg had repaired, she loved running and chasing a ball. And she adored swimming. If there was water she had to be in it – even to the extent of breaking an ice covered lochan, which I had to go in to get her out.
Tammy loved her food she appeared to have an internal clock and always let us know if we were running late. Her favourite was Sunday breakfast when she joined the rest of the family with sausages!
She was such a happy and adorable little Springer who enriched our lives. Tammy had wonderful holidays in the Highlands of Scotland and Wales, long walks especially in the forests. We have wonderful memories to treasure of our Tammy who was dearly loved and gave us so much happiness.
