Pets mean love
Our family has no doubt the best gift we have this year, is the gift of life.
Three weeks ago, we thought we'd lose we'd lose our dog, Max to cancer. He'd had an operation earlier in the year, and we thought he wouldn't be able to survive another one so soon.
Max's death would have completed the most horrid year for the family with losing both his sister, Jess, and their daughter, Bear within months of each other at the start of the year.
I am pleased to say, Max appears to be doing as well as can be expected. His breathing is laboured but it always will be now.
