Our dog Chilli
My wife of 44 years died of lung cancer on 6 August 2014. In the end it was much quicker than the doctors anticipated. But she couldn't breathe and was struggling to stay alive. In that sense I'm pleased she is now free. I missed her death by 10 minutes as I had to leave the hospital to hand our dog over to a friend but my daughter was with her all along. I'm sorry about that but I was with her for 7 hours just before the end. It's hard now I'm alone but our dog is a comfort and she has had more walks in the past couple of weeks than in months. As I write this she is asleep besides the bed something that wasn't allowed when my wife was alive.
