31st October 2017

It was a sad day for us all at the fishery on Tuesday, Amber our eldest Mastiff lost her fight against cancer.
Many of you guys who have visited us over the years would have met her she was a loving dog and a very big part of our family she even had a fish named after her.
She will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
R.I.P Baby girl Mummy and Daddy love you xxxxxx
