I have lost two precious Wagtails to MVD. Louie was my first ever Cav - a B/T who lived to be 10 and then died in the back of my car on the way to the vet, the day before my beloved god-daughter got married in London in June 2000

and Joss, my precious tri who only made it to 8 years old, and was the mother of my present tri Victoria

and then there was Peppa, who I was blessed to "rescue" when she was 4 years old, but only lived with me for 4 months before she ran away and was hit by an unknown vehicle on her first walk off the lead with me. I still go cold when I think about that fateful day - she was such a lovely little girl, but managed to run over 2 miles to reach an isolated lane just as that unknown driver reached it too.

Sweet dreams, sweet hearts
