Dogs and me
On July 19th, we had to have our English Setter Tara put to sleep. She had lymphoma and declined very quickly, but she had a good long life (14-1/2 years.) We miss her a lot. You can see pictures of her throughout my blog.
I have always loved dogs, and this is the first time I have been dogless since 1987, a state which I hope won't last too long.
Here is a photo of me at age 5 back in 1969, with our first English Setter, Gina. She was an absolutely lovely dog. I had just had my hair shorn off for a holiday in Barbados. I think my Mum was into Twiggy at the time or something!
