In the early hours of Wednesday 13th May my partner and I sadly had to kiss goodnight and say our final & devastating farewells to our adorable happy and friendly English Bull Terrier of 10 years ‘Bertie’. Bertie had reached the grand old age of 16 but his advancing old age and all its associated problems were becoming too much for him to cope with, and we had reached a stage where it just did not feel fair to let him carry on. We feel so lucky and blessed to have known him and have him be such a big part of our life and that he was able to stay with us for so long, even though we are now devastated that he is no longer with us and we miss him terribly.
We would both like to thank Mark in particular but all at Cherry Tree for making Bertie’s final journey bearable for us and for treating him with the dignity and respect that we so wanted for him. We are also very grateful for the respect and sensitivity shown towards us during what was a very sad and upsetting event.
