Bessie's last walk
This the very last walk ever with Bessie - once we had made the arrangements for her to be put to sleep all the dogs went to the Beeches and walked up to the big tree. Chris and I kept looking at her and wondering whether it was the right decision - she doesn't like like a dying dog, no worse than many old girls? We were still not really sure - what if it was just a bad couple of days and she could pull through? What is there was something that could be done to help her? Were we being too hasty?
Back at home though once again it was plain to see she 'd had enough - a dog will make a huge effort for you/me/us all, and her instinct to be out and about must have been carrying her through pain etc.
It makes me happy to see her here:)
