Saying goodbye to a friend

My mum has always had corgi dogs. She had one when I was born and I grew up with him. He died when I was 9 and I still remember how upsetting it was.

After him, we had 2 more corgis who lived long lives and died when I was in my 20s.

My mum had a few years then with no dogs, but around 10 years ago she brought home 2 new corgis.

My boys spend a lot of time at my mum's house and the dogs have been like their own. They play with them every time we are there and love spending time in the yard with them.

One of the dogs, Lace, has been getting sicker over the last few months. She had cancer. The vet did an operation on Lace a couple of weeks ago, but she became very sick over the last few days. She could no longer walk, go to the toilet, swallow and blink her eyelids.

The decision was made to put her down :( hard one to make, but best for her.

I explained to my boys about Lace. They knew she was sick and knew she was going to die. I took them over to say goodbye last night. Jack was really upset but Luke didn't really understand.

both boys with Lace. She loved their cuddles :)

Jack was at my mum's this afternoon and was looking for Lace :( he was upset that she was gone.

RIP Lace. You will be missed, sweet girl xx
