New Year....Goodbye my beloved Sandy

Sandy Neill : 23rd April 1996 - 20th November 2012

Well, it's been a long time since I have felt able to write my blog with a new name....

This isn't due to lupus, or time is due to the very sad loss of my beloved Sandy on 20th November. Sadly, at 16 years and 7 months of age my beautiful Sandy lost her fight with diabetes and renal failure and suffered a cardiac arrest at the vets. It was the saddest day of my life so far and seeing as she has been such a huge part of my life for so long it has taken a lot of coming to terms with. She's been my best friend since childhood and for the first time as an adult I am facing life without her. I am going to keep this post brief as I still find it so hard to talk about her.....but I will say :

 Goodbye my beautiful Sandy, my best friend and I will miss you so much. Thank you for all the happy times and rest in peace you beautiful, adored animal xxx


  1. Oh Anna, I am so sorry at your loss! I'm in tears reading your post as it was so obvious how much Sandy meant to you.

    The loss of any family member is so difficult & I am sending you all my love & prayers that this becomes easier & you are able to remember all the amazing times with warmth over sadness.

    I feel comfort knowing that Sandy had a fantastic life and was very much loved and well looked after. I still miss her but I am starting to feel better. Xxxx
