Man’s Best Friend
My fellow Shire horse Fusilier has been my best friend for many years but I have often heard it said that a dog is man’s best friend. From what I have observed in my time at Pennywell, I think that might be true.
Farmer Samantha brings her Springer Spaniel, Tilly to work and Mollie the terrier comes along Farmer Ellie. They run around the farmyard together every morning and it looks like great fun.
Earlier this year, it was very sad for us when Billy the Boxer dog passed away. He was owned by Farmer Catherine and had been coming to Pennywell with her ever since he was a puppy. All the Pennywell team and animals were extremely fond of him.
Billy was a very gentle soul and was certainly Catherine’s best friend. He followed her everywhere and loved her very much. It is always sad when we lose friends that we love but after some time has passed, it’s great to look back and be able to smile about all the times you shared together. We certainly have plenty of happy memories of Billy.
