RIP Tink....

Hi everyone, we said goodbye to our precious Tink today. 
Her face was swollen yesterday so we took her to the vets. She had a bad mouth infection so was given antibiotic injection and they took some blood tests. 
Results came back to day and were not good so we made the awful decision we all dread.
I will miss her dreadfully as she was always by my side but I am so lucky to have had such a wonderful friend for 19 years.
RIP little one.
