Friday evening. So sad

With heavy heart I finally felt the only solution to Nutty's situation was to have him put to sleep.

Fran agreed. We sought advice and it was helpful and kind and this also supported our decision.

Nutty was a star in the family, he really was in charge. If someone ate an apple in the same room, he would hear the crunch and pop out from his bed to squeak a demand to be given some apple (I smile involuntarily but cheerfully as I type that).

I won't talk of the problems at the end and the layered reasons we knew this was the only way left, but the consolation, and it is significant although right now not enough to quench the pain, is that we now find ourselves recalling Nutty in all his days, not just the last few weeks. Nutty the carrot fiend, Nutty the apple-hearer, Nutty the bouncing pig with a spring on each foot (surely? – how else did he do that?), Nutty the loveable, beautiful little character who was loved by us and who was a part of us.

We will never forget him. I love you Nutty.
