Sad News

On Saturday morning Sybil started with sickness & diarrhoea so we took her to the local vet who advised antibiotics and rehydration.  Sybil was left at the vets and he treated her as best he could.  We rang at 7pm and she seemed to be responding to the treatment but sadly she deteriorated rapidly and didn’t make it through the night. Even though she was fully vaccinated, the vet thinks she had picked up Pavo virus but we have no idea how or where it was contracted.

She was loving her big adventure so much and will be sadly missed, we are both heart-broken.

Sybil – 26-3-2011 to 7-4-2013 – RIP.

    I am so sad for you both. She had a lovely life and was dearly loved but that won’t ease the sense of loss I know. Perhaps Time will do its healing though, and I hope you will soon think of her with only smiles and no tears. Much love to you both.xxxx

    Thank you for all your lovely, heart-warming comments. We’ve got hundreds of photos & gazillions of happy memories – we just wish we could have carried on much longer with our “little bear”. Missing her loads. J&J
