I found out from my brother-in-law that their dog, Aslan, had become unwell and he took him to the vet on Tuesday. They diagnosed him with cancer and he had to be put down yesterday. When I rang, he’d just buried him. My sister and their children are all in Wellington and so my brother-in-law had to deal with this all by himself and continue to do so for another two days until they return.
He loved that dog and sounded very far away yesterday.
And the aftershocks continue.
