Thread: Gus. Breezes dad.

    Gus. Breezes dad.

    I am in bits, Gus my 13 year old GSP has finally given up. His age has caught up with him and he is failing fast. He's not eaten for 2 days and his back end has about gone. I have dug his hole in the garden so he can rest with his grand mother, mother and auntie and sister he has even got a son there he has outlived. This is one of the hardest things I have had to decide on. He has touched everyone who has shot game or beat/picked up in my company and there can be few people who have attended the shoots I have not had him pick a bird for them. He will be missed by us all. he even worked last season at 13 years old.

    I know how hard it is mate, i lost my two wirehairs within 6 months of one another about two years ago and its difficult to understand how it effects you.
    I have yet another one who is doing a good job and as usual being a gwp is a pain in the arse sometime but great fun and a true companion. Remember the good times with your old mate.
    Best Regards
