On the 5th. of April this year our beautiful companion, Red, was put to sleep, following an untreatable collapse. This is our tribute to our beloved boy.
In 2004 Jennifer said she would love to have an Irish Terrier. Research led us to Judy Avery, who bred them. And we where welcome to come and see the puppy . So in the October off we went. He was only twelve weeks old, and of course it was love at first sight.
In 2010 we brought home a little ginger tabby whom we named Monty. Red was mesmerised with him, while Monty played fearlessly with Red. They became forever known as ‘the Gingers’. Paradoxically, Red always chased neighbouring cats ! Monty is still with us and, like all cats, has that uncanny sense of our grief. He never leaves our sides.
Last Christmas Red was honoured by being Mr. Christmas on Lucy’s wonderful Irish Terrier calendar. The perfect choice.
