It’s a year ago today that we lost our lovely Lurcher, Willow. If you want to hear the full story, you can read about it here.
If you don’t have time, all you really need to know is it involved a fox, a van and specialist vet care that cost over £8K. After which she died anyhow.
We had some insurance, but not enough. At least we know we did everything we could for her.
A year on, I have dreaded the run up to this day but now it’s here, it’s not so bad. We’ve looked at photos and told stories about her and earlier this week I spent some time making a little Lurcher feltie that is supposed to look like her.
The dog-shaped hole she left has been filled by a rescue dog who has fitted in to our family well, but of course there is never any filling the Willow-shaped hole.
We still miss her pointy nose, hairy butt and mad zoomies last thing at night.
I just can’t believe a whole year has passed since we last saw her.
