Sooty (real name Venus) belonged to a dear friend for whom she was his best friend and confidante. Sadly Sooty passed from this world suddenly in the middle of last year leaving her owner understandably bereft.
It has taken Anthony quite a while to send through his favourite photo of Sooty so I can record an artistic image for him to enjoy and remember her by and because she isn’t with us anymore, the photo choices are whatever he had available on his phone.
This one showing Sooty on the front porch of her former home was not a very high res image and much of the detail of her coat is guess work. Nevertheless, it shows her as a characteristically gentle soul who loved her master and enjoyed bringing him toys for him to throw to her.
Teddy is obviously a favourite toy and hopefully Anthony still has it to prop up on the shelf over which her picture will hang.
Farewell Sooty – you touched many lives but we will see you again soon I know when we can continue to run free and play together.
