Maisie (aka The Fatdog) April 2003 – July 2012
We thought that her slowing up was down to age, mild arthritis and her annual summer protest at walks in the sun. Sadly that wasn’t the case; it proved to be non-regenerative anaemia. From mid June there was a steady decline in her energy levels and on the 17th July there was no alternative but to allow her to sleep for the final time.
Maisie’s great ability was to make people smile as she ambled up to them, tail gently wagging…even those not accustomed to dogs were pleased to see her. The world has lost one of its gentlest creatures and even the sky cried heavy rain for over 24 hours at her passing.
