In Loving Memory of this beautiful black Persian Boy

I cannot thank my friend Cheryle enough for giving Gun the most wonderful retirement at Pussin Boots Boarding Cattery. He was always the first in line to have a cuddle from her customers and if they didn’t take any notice of him he would tap them on the leg to tell them he was waiting!! He was king pin and loved the garden and being able to wonder around with the rest of the animals whether it was 2 or 4 legged he got on with them all.

Gun died at the ripe old age of 18yrs, many of his progeny still live on in the background of our pedigrees.

BT (as Peter called her) was Peters best friend, whenever he spoke about her you could see she was such a part of his life and he loved her to bits. I thank Peter and Lynda for giving BT the home she so thoroughly deserved and for showing her over the years to perfection and to the status of Gold Premier. BT is survived by her 2 daughters that have reached Gold Dbl Gd Championship like there much-loved mother.
