We said goodbye to Charlie with great sadness as everyone had grown so fond of him. Charlie was a real fighter and despite being 40 years old and almost blind, with liver and kidney failure he still had a strong personality and knew how to tell us he was not happy. Charlie more recently refused to leave the stable yard and so lived there happily for the last few months, where he received lots of attention daily and attracted lots of new friends. Charlie especially liked being scratched and groomed, being fed biscuits and dozing in the sunshine.
Sadly Charlie’s condition began to deteriorate and he was unaware of his surroundings, to the stage where he became frightened of many normal activities around him, and he was very distressed when he was stabled at night. For this reason we felt that it was unfair to ask Charlie to carry on.
Charlie was surrounded by people who loved him in his final hours and we hope he will now rest in peace.
