Polly came into our lives as a companion for Ben. She was lively and they had great fun together.
After Ben died tragically early she was very lonely so of course we got a companion for her, Harry.
She became very much the lady boss and developed a strong individual personality - which at times conflicted with our ideas of what she should be doing! We loved her.
She got older and older, as we all do, and began to suffer from a variety of infirmities. When she was obviously in pain and had no real quality of life we took her to the vets and she was quietly put to sleep with dignity. We all cried a lot.
