Unfortunately I am writting about some very sad news. Our lovely black labrador Rocky lost his fight against canine leishmaniosis. This is an awful cruel disease which I hope they find a cure for very soon.
Although I had only been in Rockys life for 3 years he knew me as his mum, we had a good bond, many happy walks and lots of silly giddy times. We are missing him lots and the other dogs are very quiet, I guess they miss their friend too.
I had nursed Rocky from near deaths door over a year ago, I had to inject him with medication into a muscle in his back leg everyother day for 6 days, give him 2 tablets a day, when he was soooo ill I cooked him chicken and sat in the kennel with him to hand feed him. We were lucky and got him back but this time no matter what nursing or medication we were not getting him back, but at least he is in peace and out of pain now.
He has a lovely resting spot under an olive tree on our land where he can keep an eye on what we are up to.
Richard has done a tribute to Rocky on his blog.
