A Sad Farewell

It is with the heaviest of hearts that as this rotten year is drawing to a close we must tell you that Mickey (Fleetwood Royal) has sadly been put to sleep. Dear Mickey was just five years old and his family are heartbroken.Mickey became a bit lethargic a couple of weeks before Christmas but the Vets could find nothing wrong. However he became very ill on Christmas Eve and was referred to Dick White’s in Newmarket where he was admitted to the Intensive care unit for a few days with aspirational pneumonia. Despite the very best efforts of the Veterinary team Mickey was too poorly and sadly had to be put to sleep.His family say “We are very sad, he was a lovely dog who was part of our family and we will miss him a lot. Our two other dogs Lottie and Ralph are adjusting to a life without MickeyMickey is irreplaceable but we loved having a greyhound in our lives and would like to consider rehoming another greyhound” Our hearts go out to Mickey’s lovely family, we thank them for the happy and loving home they gave Mickey and when they feel the time is right we will look forward to welcoming them to kennels to choose another friend for Lottie and Ralph.Sleep well dear Mickey, you were truly a gentleman of a dog and you will be much missed on our walks.xxx
