this is a sad post for me to have to write and i have been putting it off for quite a while. before christmas joker's health got to the point where it was time for him to make the final trip to the vet and for us to say goodbye to him. he was cheery and kind right up to the end but it was the right time for him to go.
dave was sad to start with but has coped well and is back to his usual self. us peeps were very sad but also grateful that we were able to do this last thing for joker and didn't have to let him suffer.
so there won't be any more posts on joker's blog, although i'll leave it up on the net. thank you to all our friends all over the world from me and from joker, whose spirit lives on in so many ways.
