On Monday my DH and I had to say goodbye to our lovely old dog Bentley who was nearly 12 years old.
He had had a progressive paralysis of his back legs, which had been working its way up from his toes to his spine for the past couple of years, and he finally collapsed on Monday and couldn't be moved from our van.
The house is very quiet without him, he used to bark loudly at anything that moved at the end of the garden and frequently got a telling off for it, and now I would love to lean out of the window and tick him off.
He was a great friend, listening patiently to all my woes over the last 11 years. He never blamed me for bad moods, just waited till I felt better and was ready to pet him.
He was a big dog with an even bigger heart and we miss him hugely.
