Sad news – Goodbye Salty…💔

I’m so sorry to be sharing a sad blog post with you all but today we had to say goodbye to our sweet little Salty…💔

She has not been well for some weeks and a scan earlier this week revealed an aggressive cancer. For those of you who have followed me at ‘Coastal Crochet’ you’ll know what a big part of my crochet journey Salty has been and therefore why it’s important I share this extremely sad news with you all.

And oh how sad we feel at loosing such a sweet, lovely, gorgeous little dog.

Often seen by my side and featured alongside many of my crochet creations as well as being the basis for some of my crochet designs, Salty has been with me at Coastal Crochet from the very start.

Bringing her into our family nearly 12 years ago was one of the best things we ever did. She has been perfect for us in every way.

I know that so many of you have enjoyed seeing her here with me over the years and will share my heartbreak. 🙁

Thank you dear Salty for everything … it was a complete and utter pleasure to have you in our lives and we will miss you more than words can ever say…💔😢🌈

I’ll simply leave you with a selection of some of my favourite Salty ‘Coastal Crochet’ photos from over the years…❤️

As a puppy…❤️
And with my Daddy… ❤️
