Sad news for those of you who knew her. My beloved little white Jack Russell terrier Nettle died very suddenly last weekend, aged only nine years. The vets think she may have had a tumour, but it was all extremely unexpected. This is the last photo I took of her a couple of weeks ago in the snow. Below is a video of her on the same day, bounding around happily and apparently healthily. She struck fear into the hearts of the local rat and rabbit populace, but adored children and was much loved by everyone who came to stay here. She will be sorely missed.
