Our beloved Spaniel Jack, aged fourteen years, became ill and died. He was much loved and so much part of our family. Our Granddaughter Phoebe (six) adored him. When our eldest daughter became ill (during her pregnancy) she had to have chemo and a stay in hospital. Phoebe asked her mum “Is Auntie Amy going to die?” She said it was a heart stopping moment. She didn’t die! And now has a beautiful baby girl.
