A few hours ago we lost Millie. Massive, drooling, bit smelly, not sweet and cuddly (you’d lose your arm) and clearly her own woman. She passed in Bob’s arms at the vet’s after a rapid deterioration. OK, we knew she was on her way but it still hurts so much. Tia would like to think of her sitting on the other side of her original owner Cameron, whose legacy allowed us to buy Millrace. Chester died a few weeks ago so it will be a relief for him finally to get off the bridge. Their ashes will be scattered together up in the orchard where they patrolled nightly long after the visitors had departed.
The sausage round tonight was quite frankly horrific as will tomorrow morning when Bob has his brew before the madding crowd arrives.
Just him and her and the early morning watch. Chewing over the day before the cars arrive.
Thanks for looking after us darling. Cam, I gave you my word on that day so long ago. I kept it and I thank you now for having faith in me.
It was 2013, when Cameron rang me out of the blue, with the news that he had terminal cancer. After growing up with him and knowing him all my life it was hard to understand. At our age? His main worry, his dogs. Not so much Chester, the big daft fawn puppy dog. Yes puppy… But Millie…The wrong side of middle age, the wrong side of cute. Not keen on other dogs either after being attacked. Cameron died peacefully in the knowledge that they would be taken care of. Chester and Millie now live at Tia and look after the place.
