Jess

This week was a very sad week for us as we had to say goodbye to our faithful old girl Jess. She was nearly 17 years old, and was the most perfect hound you could ever wish for.


She was a fabulous companion - never too far away from me, even when I was posing for my photo shoots:


She travelled over from the UK with us when we emigrated to Canada in 2004, and adapted really well to her new life, and to Rocky and Hobbes, the greyhounds that we adopted.


Yet, for a dog that never caused any trouble - she didn't bark, chew anything or do anything naughty - she has left a great void in our lives.  Towards the end she became quite poorly, and we miss her terribly.  I just hope that somewhere, she is happily chasing rabbits and squirrels xx
