Gone but never forgotten...

Our hearts are sore and the tears keep flowing as we said goodbye to our little Bracken last week ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’” She had grown increasingly frail and had started to go off her food last week. I am so pleased that she got to see her beloved Nanna one last time as my Mum came down last weekend. It was a heartbreaking decision to make but as a very wise person once said to me 'better a day too early than a minute too late' Our Facebook post...

Mountland Made in Heaven - Bracken
24/3/2005 - 19/3/2020 ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก
We knew it had been coming for a while but this week it became obvious that the time was here for us to say our last goodbye to our beautiful Bracken. Words cannot do her justice or what she has given us, but we owe her so much. She introduced us to so many people, to agility and gave absolutely everything 100%. She may have been tiny but she will leave an enormous hole in our lives. She had so many health challenges but she always kept fighting. We would like to say a huge heartfelt thank you to Sally for all your help with Bracken and giving us those extra few years together after being diagnosed with kidney failure three years ago.
We have experienced every emotion possible from the obvious sadness and grief but we have an overwhelming level of pride in the life we had together, what she gave us, we gave to her and the memories we made together. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก

Our little Diddle would have been 15 today, it would have been lovely to have celebrated it with her but that would have been for selfish reasons. The most important thing is that we were both there at the end and the vets were brilliant and very compassionate. I haven't updated my blog for a long time as this winter has been depressing and work has been patchy at best so to be honest I haven't been in the right frame of mind to write anything. Spark was out of action after two operations, Brodie retired from agility competitions, Bru and Brooke hardly got any training and it rained for what seemed like months. BUT...we have a lot to be thankful for and this is me giving myself a kick up the butt to blog again. I'm so grateful for my amazing Matthew, family and friends and of course the doglets! x
