RIP Freddie

Our family pet Freddie the yellow labrador has left us for wherever dog heaven is. We were fortunate to enjoy his company and love for 5 years since the Labrador Rescue Trust brought him to us as a mere 10 year old.  A big dog, even after our regime of exercise and diet, he tended to alarm people by his size but always won them round with his good nature.

During the last couple of years he had gone deaf, lost a great deal of his sight, was diagnosed with a form of dementia and lost a lot of mobility through arthritis in his hips.

He never complained or showed any change in temperament. Even during our last visit to Cork before Easter he was game for a slow wander around the perimeter of the garden.

Cheerio Freddie & thanks for the memories.
