|Rest in peace dad from Boris|
Ken and his wife Lin had puppy walked Boris from 7 weeks of age until Ken recently became unwell with what was thought to be a gall bladder problem. Lin had also been waiting patiently for a back operation and so reluctantly they had to give up looking after their beloved Boris.
Sadly worse was to come as Ken was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer and within a matter of weeks he tragically died in hospital in the early hours of Wednesday 8th October.

The above shows Boris watching as his former master and dear friend Ken arrives before going into the chapel for what was to be a lovely service and tribute from his family and friends.
Ken and his wife Lin had only retired a year ago and because they had always enjoyed owning German Shepherds decided to try puppy walking for the Police. Up until Ken’s illness they had been enjoying raising Boris at their cottage near Newquay.
They did a tremendous job and loved attending the fortnightly training sessions with the other B litter puppy walkers and puppies.
We are all still in shock and I will miss our training sessions together. Lin is going to keep in contact with everyone from our group and the dog section and will be watching Boris’s progress with interest. I am sure Ken will be a very interested observer also.
I have included some pictures of our time together below.
Rest in peace my friend
