Sad news

We've had a very emotional day today. Wallace was worse again this morning and Hugh and I rushed him up to the vet. After checking him over and discussing his problems it was decided that the kindest thing for him was to stop his suffering and pain. We brought him home for the afternoon so that everyone could say their goodbyes and spend some time with him.
Jon, Emily and I took him back to the vets this evening where he was put to sleep. Although we are all so sad, we have some comfort knowing that he is no longer in pain or discomfort.
Thank you Wallace for being part of our lives for 9 1/2 years. We're really going to miss you as you were very much a part of our family.


  1. We'll miss you Wallace, especially Josh who used to enjoy your licks so much!!! from Michelle, Matthew and Josh xxx

  2. I'm so sorry to hear you have said goodbye to Wallace. It's so hard to say goodbye to a pet - they are definitely part of the family! I only have my phone today but will write later when I have my laptop back.

    Thinking of you all

  3. Hugs to you and your family on your sad news. :'(

  4. Wallace has been so much a part of this family's lives for all those years so he will be greatly missed. We are all so sorry but knowing that his pain is over is some consolation. Special love to Emily. xxx

  5. That's one hard decision to make. So sorry, but I know you made the right choice. I so remember the day we had to do the same thing. So hard.

  6. I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of Wallace. My pooch sends Cloud a comforting lick and snuffle.
