Sorry to hear that Simon. I rather fancy a Dachshund myself but my Jack Russell probably has another few yrs in her yet.

Scott, the complications were caused by a person we had working for us not giving her the right amount when we were away. Otherwise she’d probably still be here.

… but she ignored written instruction. A stupid person who was too stupid to do the right thing when she made a mistake.

many do that ..make a mistake and leave said mistake uncorrected thus making mistake huge ..classic non confrontationalism

Oh, man. I have to go take some photos of a friend’s dog tomorrow because she’s going to be ‘put to sleep’ due to bone cancer, and he’d like a nice big canvas of her. My own dog died just over a year ago. I still miss him terribly. I’m really sorry to hear your Chippy has gone. They’re family, the best friends you’ll ever have, and their death is always deeply upsetting. My condolences. 🙁

They certainly tug at your heart Simon if you are a solid dog person, it is a huge loss whether it’s sudden or expected as they are part of your family…..I’m sure the person who responsible will be devastated too….not good mate but must remain positive…..memories are sad & great.

How horrible for you, Simon. I’m still furious at our neighbour who didn’t look after our cat properly when we went away for the weekend, not sure how anyone handles something like this. So sorry for your loss, she looks like a lovely wee lady.

Also with you being a writer Simon it might help ease the grief if you took some time with your lovely lady to put pen to paper in regards to the time Chippy was with you…just a thought mate.

Named after the original Chippy, I presume? I remember your mother telling me that Chippy’s real name was Chipolata Woof Grigg.
