This is the last photo I took of Alice on Tuesday. She is rugged up in her favourite blanket.
Thank you for your thoughts and prayers, they have really helped us during this sad time. We are fine; we realise that death and sadness are a part of life and we just have to give it a bit of time. We're both grateful that we shared our lives with such devoted and dependable dogs, Alice and Rosie, and Murphy before them, another Airedale.
In the end, the vet came to our home to care for Alice. She is now buried in the backyard, under the Banksia rose, next to Rosie. RIP Alice.
