Just wanted to let you all know that sadly we had to let Nellie go over rainbow bridge last evening.
We adopted her from you in April 2012, picking her up from the vets just after being spayed. She came to live with 2 older brothers, Morgan and Freddie, and slotted in perfectly. She'd met all of the springers we've brought into our home over the years and remained in charge to the very end. Unfortunately she was stricken with both hip and elbow dysplasia together with osteoarthritis and though we considered hip replacements because her front legs were so compromised we decided to make her as comfortable as we could for as long as we could with pain relief supported by hydrotherapy. Over the last couple of weeks it became clear that her legs had all but given up on her but stoically she tried to carry on.
Nellie was one in a million and she's left a huge Nellie shaped hole in our hearts. Thank you for letting us give her her forever home.
