With a heavy heart we say goodbye to our little Paddy (Leon). Born with a cleft pallet. What a fighter what a trooper. First of the litter to open his eyes, first to walk, and first to be properly house trained. This world wasn’t for him. But he’s in doggy heaven with blondie & CC and the other beautiful pets that we have called family over the years. Thank you Anne for the way you took care of him and to @profnoelfitzpatrick and the team @fitzpatrick_referrals who have shown him love and care in our mutual fight to give him a long and good life. We may not have succeeded at making it a long one, but boy it was a good one - he was never short of affection and care. He was the most special animal we have ever known. God bless ya Pads. 😢. X
