Sally (6/6/09-14/9/22) and Honey

Resident furry client carers

For the past 11 years, beautiful “Sal” jumped into the back seat of my car, smile on her dial, and enthusiastically came to work, ready to greet you and let you know all is ok.

Gentle, loyal, intuitive – Sally knew your feelings, sensed your needs, always with a ready canine cuddle on hand! She made all of our days that little but lighter and brighter.

After a great innings, beautiful Sal passed age 13.5yrs on 14 Sept 2022 but not before she spent her senior years nurturing and teaching “Honey Bear” what it means to be a resident canine carer!

“Honey Bear” with her own unique character continues Sally’s legacy and spirit to brighten your day, lighten the load and remind us that all is and will be ok!

RIP SAL
