Over eight years ago we adopted Candy who became ‘Red Alert’ or just ‘red’ from you. She was a very nervous little dog who took her courage from our 6 year old Cocker, Harvey.
In November we had to say goodbye to Harvey at the grand age of 15. It was sad, but expected. We were all a little lost. Red had adjusted well with lots of fuss and walks to encourage her to make new doggy friends so we were considering a companion for her, but she was diagnosed with Chronic Hepatitus. This was a sudden shock, and after much discussion in the family, we decided that we would not let the end of her life be filled with stressful medications and treatments as she was nearly 11. We did what we thought, and John the vet agreed, was the kindest thing.
