I've mentioned before about Shep our family dog. Well a few weeks ago Shep had to be put down. You only met him a few times. But I'm glad you did. He was such a great dog, he was part of the family and will be greatly missed. He would always follow us around the house and be there for company too, he even had his own sofa! Your Nana rescued him back in 1998 from a farm where he was being abused. When she brought him home he was a delicate animal and needed nourishment. After a few months he began to look much healthier. He was only a puppy when we brought him home and we had many happy memories of him when your uncles and myself were younger, playing with him in the paddock, going for walks in the forest and on the beach. He was a Scottish border collie. Over the years he got older and so did his body. He was a strong dog and lived a happy 14 years which I believe is very good for a dog's life. He will be sadly missed.
When I was a child I was scared of dogs, If one was on the other side of the road of walking past us in the park I would always make a fuss and jump up on your Grandad. That's when your grandparents decided to get us a dog and I'm glad they did otherwise I may still have been scared of them now.
One day I would like us to get a dog, so you can experience the joy that Shep brought to our family and so you won't be scared of them like I was. Your grandparents in Angelsey have many dogs so I am sure you will have plenty of fun chasing their tails around the house when you are a little older.
