This is the saddest picture I have ever posted. On Saturday we went for our annual holiday to Scotland. On the way up we stop at Loch Lomond. This is the last picture I took of my best friend. The following day everything seemed fine, but in the evening, Ruby started to have problems, so we took her to the vets in Oban. On arrival she collapsed and the vet thought she had died. But she recovered, he gave her some injections and told us to bring her back on Monday morning. On the way home she was lay on my knee, she got up and turned to Jacqueline my wife, who stroked her. She then turned to me and laid on my arm and died.
Ruby was at Maltese Terrier. She was only 9 years old, and she had been with me 24/7 in all that time. She always slept on my bed at night.
The version 1 is in Weston Super Mare 6 weeks ago. Version 2 is Scotland in 2020. Happier times

Iím so sorry for your loss, my condolences
So very sad, having her pass away in your arms is far far better than taking back to the vets with all the guilt that that can entail. She was a beautiful looking little Westie and had a wonderful loving life with you.

So sorry for your loss Gerry. The comfort you have is that you were with your lovely Ruby when she needed you most. Our animal family are so much more than pets.

Love to you and your wife.

Our thoughts are with you both, Gerry, bad enough when age catches up with our beloved pets,
but no words can express our sorrow at the loss of Ruby . Always enjoyed your pics of your adventures together.
