Took poor old Lucy on her final journey to the vet yesterday. She was diagnosed with cancer about six weeks ago and has been on a course of steroids since. Her breathing, though, has grown more and more difficult and by yesterday she could barely stand. Many, many thanks to Juliet, Jim and everyone at the Bixter surgery for being so kind and caring. Her sister Lulu is in a state of high agitation. We're all very sad.
