Farewell to Jess

It’s been a difficult week in our household , on Wednesday we had to have Jess put down , and it was so hard . 

Jess had been a much valued and loved family member for over the past 14 years , I think one reason we even bought our Manyana  house was so we could holiday with our then Golden Retriever ” Bossy” . Jess soon filled her place when Bossy died and many holidays were spent in Manyana ,swimming and walking the beach . 

I always called her our Douman , she was more than a dog and was always involved in every thing we did , she lived with us and slept in our room for all those years , she has bush walked , climbed peaks , camped by open fires , travelled the outback and barked at many cows ( always from the  back seat of the car ) , she loved! ,loved ! to swim and many hours were spent in the lake swimming back and forth just out of my range when it was time to go home . 

We are feeling a bit hollow at the moment , her health has been in decline over the past year and it has been hard to watch her suffer . I have posted a few pics of her in happier times and I can honestly say there will never be another dog like her .
