Today it was time to say goodbye to Chilli who has been in our family for almost 13 years.
Typical chilli – whenever she had a bad turn it was rarely during business hours. Mum and I sat with her waiting until it was near 10 when the vet opened.
With so much trouble breathing, the kindest thing to do was to put her to sleep. She drifted away very peacefully.
We took her home and put her near the rose mum and dad just planted for their 40th wedding anniversary.
Chilli loved to have conversations with mum, dad and I. She was a great talker, good at rolling and having a little tummy rub and watching the world cautiously from a distance. She will be missed.
