I have had to say goodbye to Tystie this morning. She was not herself
yesterday and had been sick, drinking a lot of water. The vet said that
word beginning with "p" which means a hysterectomy and I signed
the consent form. He said he would do the blood tests and ring me later
to confirm that he would do the surgery. Unfortunately, when he rang,
it was to say that not only did she need the surgery but that her kidneys
were failing and really the best thing was to say goodbye. My manager
drove me to Sleaford so that I could be with her.
Her show record was impressive and Tystie leaves a legacy thought her two litters - first she was mated to Ch Shielhill Bran to Kilbourne and produced Ghiltan Larch the 2nd litter Ghiltan Midsummer was kept but unfortunately she had an accident which meant she could not be bred from - Larch went on to produce Hero and Honesty Hobby and Tiercel. Ghiltan Hobby is the foundation bitch of the Edward's (Brackenland) and we now have Brackenland Tan who is Hobbys daughter. So Tystie you are with us still
