Lofty a 9 1/2 year old Gentleman who was re-homed this summer.  His previous life was good but he lived with a bossy Great Dane bitch, and latterly, having moved from an Island existence where he had freedom to stroll, found life restricted to lead walks when possible.  Within a couple of weeks of being in our care, two lovely people took Lofty into their home where at last he had enjoyable walks, good food, comfortable beds and most important, he didn't have to wait in line for a cuddle, now he had his own family who showed him great love. 

Sadly, shortly before Christmas, Lofty started to suffer from Epileptic Fits and the Vet advised that Lofty should be released out of his suffering. The following poem is in his memory.

"Our gentle boy, with us no more
Life with him was never a bore
Although dreamland was his thing
A lot of waking hours did bring
Our coffee time with his Bonios,
How we miss him nobody knows.

In the kitchen we would meet
For a sneaky tasty treat
To turn the clock back would be great
But a sacrifice we had to make
So, our gentle giant, wherever you are
You will be remembered near and far. "
