Today is the first anniversary of Sonny getting his wings. In some ways it feels like an eternity since I last cuddled him but the pain feels as bad as the day he lost his battle with MVD.
He came to us when he was about 2 after not a very good start in life and he was just the best little companion you could ever imagine - a real mummy's boy.
The eight years he shared with us were wonderful and he has left us so many memories. Paul posted a tribute at The Dog pages forum just after he was PTS which kind of says it all.
It's been a teary weekend, one look at his photos and I'm off again but we'll remember him today as we do every day with all our love and be grateful for the love, companionship and loyalty he shared with us.
Sonny, my little man, you were simply the best.
