Lots of tears were shed this morning when alas we had to say goodbye to Hector. I think I was close to being inconsolable. Myself and Hector got up real early and had our last walk on the sea front at 7am. Then it was home for breakfast, a play in the garden and a nice groom. Before we knew it the phone was ringing just after 9am to say that Stephen was on his way to collect Hector. We packed up his freshly washed favourite blanket and some of his favourite toys to have in the van on the journey to Cork. The task of putting Hector in the van was made easier because Nikita, his good friend was already in the van and they were going to travel to Cork together.
I still can't believe he is gone. Every time I came back into the house today I was expecting to be met with his wonderful and enthusiastic greeting that he always gave. The guys in Cork now have the privilege of having his most exuberant and joyous welcomes. That is something we will all miss dearly.
I am sure the Guide Dogs will keep us posted on Hector's progress. Heres wishing Hector the best of luck from us and to say we love him and we will miss him lots and lots.
Hugs and kisses from Aidan, Michele, Alice and Sarah.
