RIP Beret from Menindee, my Broken Hill connection

Around nine years ago, I was staying in Broken Hill on one of my many visits. I was staying with a friend who had a little Maltese Shih Tzu cross dog called Bear (sp?). I was so taken with Bear that I thought I'd find out where he came from.

Turns out he came from Menindee. A little town 110 km south east of Broken Hill. I decided I'd go home via Menindee and see if there were any more little relatives of Bear.

I came across one last little pup from a litter, and bought my first ever dog, who was a cousin of Bear.

I named her Beret (semi named after Bear).

Very sadly, about a month ago, I had to have Beret put down due to health reasons.

Luckily I still have another dog named 'Who' whom I bought on the way home from another trip to Broken Hill about six years ago. That's another story.

You were a funny little dog Beret, with quirky habits and a lot of energy. My brother always said it was like she had drunk too much coffee.

Who and I miss you Beret. But we won't forget you.

So it's simply ... RIP Beret.
