Farewell, Old Chance

It is with regret that we pass on the sad news of the passing away of the Silverwoods' old old dog, Chance at the ripe old age of about 18. He was a young dog when we first knew him, when Mr and Mrs S were first getting together back in the UK and became a great friend of Megan and Haggis. His name 'Chance' comes from the fact that they rescued him from a dustbin in a sorry state and gave him a new break. That's why no-one knows his actual age.

Lately, though, he'd been showing his age and was increasingly infirm, so the Silverwoods were actually getting to the point where they'd have needed to take that hard decision, so it's a mercy that he's picked his own moment, though sad for them that it happened while they were not around, being on the narrow boat with us.

Fare well then, old friend. Rest in Peace. We'll miss you.
