Goodbye To The Wonderful Kayla.....

Saturday was another really sad day, as we had to say goodbye to another very special and wonderful girl.

Kayla was covered in huge lumps when she turned up at our door as a stray. She had a huge one around her back end and it was clear to see that she'd been dumped.....

But Kayla's luck had just changed for the better, and when Jenna, Sarah and Lewis offered her a home to recover in after her surgery, she never looked back. That temporary arrangement became permanent after Kayla had won a huge place in their hearts with her never say die attitude and spirit. She was already a great dog, but with a family of her own she blossomed and even adjusted to when Blade went to stay without much fuss.

I will never forget Kayla being the perfect ambassador for SHAK at a fundraiser at the Blue Bell, introducing herself to everybody at every table..... that had food!

Recently Kayla had slowed right down, and x rays last week confirmed our worst fears. A huge bone tumour had settled itself in her hip. It was so large there was nothing that could be done.

So after a week of dining out and take aways followed by ice cream, Kayla's family had to be brave themselves and let her go. I will always be grateful to them for giving her a chance when she needed it most. For giving her a life..... that was all Kayla needed.

She is missed, and loves. God bless her.
