Susi, we’re so sorry to hear about Lola’s passing. She was so lucky to be adopted by yourself. Losing a beloved pet is incredibly difficult, especially when they’ve been a cherished part of your life for so long. It’s clear that Lola was more than just a pet; she was your “soul dog,” and the bond you shared was undoubtedly deep and special.

Though Lola is no longer with you physically, she’ll forever remain in your heart and memories. She left a paw print on your soul, and her spirit will always be a part of you. We hope that time will ease the pain and that the beautiful memories you shared with Lola will bring comfort and warmth. 🐾❀️

Now, let us introduce you to this fabulous duoβ€”Millie and her Mum are the dynamic team behind the “Jane the Dog Groomer” parlour in the Broads. With such a cute and fluffy assistant, who wouldn’t want to get their pup pampered there? πŸ›πŸ©

But here’s the twist in Millie’s tale: She was rescued at three years old, and she’s got a quirky personality quirk. Millie is an absolute CAT lover, and when it comes to fellow doggies, well, let’s just say she’s a bit more “paws”itive about her feline friends! πŸ±πŸΆπŸ˜…

It just goes to show that dogs have their own unique personalities, quirks, and preferences. Millie, you keep doing you, and thanks for sharing your delightful photo with us! πŸ’•πŸ•
