A few words from our friends

“To John and all the nurses at Oakfield,

We wanted to say a HUGE thank you for all the care and advice you have shown and given to Kyte and us.

We had just under three years of amazing (and many challenging!) times with Kyte. Without your experience and dedicated care, this would not have been possible. You have made it possible for Kyte to live as long and fully as he possibly could and that is something that we will live with for the rest of our lives. He was such an amazing dog.

We will be pointing dog owners in your direction as our neighbours did for us when Kyte was a puppy.

All the best for the future.”
