My wee and feisty friend, Gonzo.
Little black and white Jack Russell cross with something.
You gave Cath a good long run. With her through thick and thin. You were her first child. And her most beloved.
And you were my first “dog sitting” attempt.
Luckily, you liked me, because I took you for 2 walks a day and paid as much attention to you as your mum did.
So you treated me well, and when Cath got some new family members, you put them in their place and taught them how to love me too.
I cannot even begin to explain how sad I am.
This is a deep, aching void that you create.
Not just in me, but most especially for Cath.
And it had to be her decision. Which could not have been easy.
RIP my charismatic little friend.
You will also be sorely missed.
