We are absolutely devastated to have lost Sophie, our beautiful little whippet/collie girl, very suddenly at only 12 years old. She had two massive seizures out of the blue last week, then at the weekend wasn't 'right', she seemed to be in pain and wasn't walking properly. Our vet acted very quickly and got her booked in for an MRI on Monday, but sadly it was the worst possible news, she had an aggressive tumour deep in her brain. We made the decision to ask the vet not to bring her round from the anaesthetic, which was kindest for her, but it has absolutely devastated me to think her last morning was spent frightened at the vets and among strangers Sophie was with us just under five years after living the first 7 years of her life in horrible conditions. She was always going to be a timid, nervous girl after her early experiences, but was so sweet and loving with the people she trusted, she had a very special place in my heart. Sleep tight, precious girl.
