I had to make the hard decision to get my old boy Robbie put to sleep tonight. He's left a huge void after having had him for seventeen years. :(

Aww! Kelly, I'm so sorry to hear this. :( It is very sad when a loving pet passes away. It is like losing a member of the family. You will always have happy memories of Robbie. Thinking of you at this sad time.
Kind Regards
Freddy

I'm absolutely devastated. I feel like I'm in mourning for a close member of the family. He's been with me the best part of my adult life. :(

I've got my exam on Monday and I can't concentrate on anything at the minute. :sigh:

Deep breaths Kelly.... It is a tricky time for you, the loss of a pet is, as you say, like loosing a family member.... Top and bottom of it Robbie was family. Sending you tight comforting hugs x x
