    I feel as though i have to make this post even though some people won't know me or Fletcher. Fletcher has died in a terrible accident which was no ones fault. he died from running into a metal bench, which stunned him and left him paralysed. he was taken to the pdsa hospital where nothing could be done and he had to be put to sleep. this all took place while we were on holiday and my brother and sister in law were looking after him. Fletcher was only 7months old and we are completely devastated and heart broken as i'm sure u will all understand. coming home to no puppy is horrible and at times it all still feels like a bad dream, the worst possible dream. i have lost my baby and it hurts so much, especially as i wasnt there to be with him. i dont know why i'm making this post but i felt i had to.

    really sorry to hear about your poor pup. wish I had some helpful advice, but it is not even something I could begin to imagine, so instead I'll just send virtual hugs :)

    i cant help thinking why him? it seems so unfair for such a young dog to die. he was so full of energy which makes it harder to believe he's gone. i thought we would have him for life and watch him grow, i did everything i could to be the best owner possible but you just cant control their every move. i missed him so much while we were away and promised i wouldnt let him out my sight once we got back. i loved all the walks, even at 7 in the morning in the rain. and just enjoyed being in his company all the time, i thought he was beautiful and handsome, could watch him all day. thank you for all the kinds messages.
