In April 2015, a beautiful young yellow labrador arrived here, she was to become a very firm favourite with Mino, he adored her. We called her Lilly, had her spayed and she settled in like she had lived here all her life. She became best friends with Skinny. As most of them do 🙂
I was taken into hospital in April 2016, it was a dreadful day, one I will remember for the rest of my life. When Mino came to visit me that evening, he had some awful news, Skinny had eaten a slug pellet and had almost died. Mino rushed him to the vets, he was having convulsions. The vet kept him in, and when Mino got back from the vet, he found Lilly dead in the garden. What I think happened, is that she also ate a slug pellet and was not so lucky as Skinny. I must add the slug pellets said on the packet they were animal friendly!!!
Mino was devastated, it took him a long time to get over that. Skinny eventually made a full recovery, and I am pleased to say is back to his mischievous self. We only had Lily a year, she was far too young to die. Sleep peacefully little girl 💔🐾
