A good friend of mine and her partner recently lost Alfie their 15 year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier. I have on occasions looked after Alfie for them and although he had a number of medical problems where he needed supervising and had to have various medication at various times. He was always a friendly dog and he and i hit it off almost immediately.
I miss him. Of course Paula and Steve it has hit much much harder than me and i do know what they went through and how much he is missed, because i have been through it myself many times in the Past.
Alfie was not just a dog, he was a member of the couples family and he will be missed and never forgotten. just as my dogs are missed and never forgotten.
He is now out of any pain.
Rest in Peace Alfie
