I currently have an English Springer Spaniel called Lottie. We've had her since 2009, it is now 2015 so that's what- 6 years. She's always been a seriously energetic dog, always wanting attention. She wasn't allowed on the sofa so what she used to do was whenever one of us were sat there, she'd jump up on us and keep bugging us and barking until someone sat on the floor with her. She always got her way.
In the summer of 2014 she had an accident which resulted in her shattering her left elbow. She was rushed straight to the vets where she underwent surgery in an attempt to fix her leg. Unfortunately the operation went wrong and so two weeks later she was back under. Due to this she got an infection which she never recovered from.
She's still a great dog though would will always come and sit with me when I play acoustic guitar and then run off when I start singing. She still knows how to get under everyone's feet causing accident after accident. We always forgive her though, I mean, how can you not?
