Sadly have to report the death of our small friend Ivy at the age of 16 yrs. She was always pleased to greet visitors and be fussed over, unlike her sister Holly who is more inclined to say "bah! humbug!" and stalk off in a huff! Ivy had poor health for a long time but was very tough and was always willing to see off any itinerant cats who dared to set foot on her patch, we miss her small but determined personality.
Last month we also had to say goodbye to our very gentle collie Lady, who was probably about the same age as Ivy but had been with us for 13 years. She was not very keen to have her photo taken but here is one taken on a visit to Teifi Pools a few years ago.
