Goodbye Uschi

We are very sad to have to say that Uschi was put to sleep two days ago. Her back end went and she wasn’t able to stand up. It was very sudden and we are still coming to terms with losing her. It will take time to adjust but we are comforted by the many memories we have of her to look back on.

Goodbye our darling girl, we loved you so much.

Lovely Uschi

Beach time

Uschi loves the beach and so we make the most of the opportunity to take her to Crosby whenever we are visiting family in Merseyside. She loves to run but her back legs are arthritic now and so we have to cut her walks short, she doesn’t know when to stop!

New cats

We adopted two rescue cats recently, we named them Aggy and Orla. It took a few weeks for the cats and Uschi to settle with each other, but now they are getting along really well.  Sometimes touching noses, very sweet!

Here is Uschi and Aggy:

Paddling and ambling

We had a few days back in the Lake District again recently.  Uschi has arthritis in her back legs now and can’t go long walks but she does love paddling in shallow water.  Here is a shot of her really enjoying being at Ullswater:

We did do some walking and really enjoyed a sunny morning at River Rothay between Grasmere and Rydal Water while Stephen went wild swimming in Rydal! Here is Uschi asking me not to dawdle as we went on a short walk before sitting in the sunshine on the river bank.

We had a wonderful few days and are already looking forward to our next trip.

Uschi the model

We’ve decided to make some room in the pet cupboard and sell a dog coat that Uschi hasn’t used since we bought it.  I’ve listed the coat on eBay and Uschi helpfully modelled for the listing! She looks so pretty! We nearly decided not to sell it!




If you are interested in the coat it’s listed on eBay for auction close on Sunday 28 June or buy-it-now 🙂  SOLD already!
