RIP Amber

Today we took our beautiful bull mastiff to be put down. Heart-breaking, but necessary... she was over 10 years old and had been diagnosed with kidney failure. She was skipping meals and her weight had dropped to just 34 kilograms (from 51 kg a few years before).

She had a wonderful sniff around the vet's waiting room, and it was lovely to see some of her old joy and bounciness back. But it also brought back memories of her younger self. It made it all the sadder to say good-bye and stroke her head as she fell asleep for the last time...

RIP, Amber!
