Hi Lorraine and Bradley my son whose idea this was have had dogs all our lives and recently suffered the trauma of losing our best friend ever. Lenny was an English Bull Terrier and I believe came to us at eight weeks old for a reason. At a routine check up at a year he was found to have a heart murmur. Our lives then consisted of cardiology appointments and medication. We was told he wouldn't see the year out as heart failure had started. Three years later he was still going strong. Suddenly he had a collapse and We thought We'd lost him. Tests showed the heart failure had flared up rapidly and all meds were increased. The next day our boy was flying round again. Happiness was short lived as eight weeks later the same happened but this time fluid was building up at a rate faster than it could be drained. Meds were increased to maximum level but failed to work. We knew it was time. Lenny was four years and two months when we said goodbye.
We are part of various dog rescues and fostered more bull breeds than I can remember
Hope this way we can experience the joy of a dog and help out someone. I walk daily at Westleigh Heights, Watt Tyler Park, Stanford Sea Wall and sometimes further afield. Available for day sitting, hourly walks or overnight stays
