Today our hearts were broken when we lost our beloved Libby
( Otago Kenzo Kashaya ).

She was ill for just a couple of days and because the vet failed to diagnose her problem and treat her accordingly she was taken from us suddenly.

Libby was the most amazing character, a truly loving girl and a perfect mother to her babies. She lives on in her sons and daughters and her grandchildren. Run free my beautiful Libby.

Gone to join her brother Dutch, mother Molly and her father Andor.

We miss you so very much.
