News Shopper:

“Casey lived in Evenden Road, Meopham, and was often in the front garden watching everyone pass by, something of a well-known local celebrity in our street.

“Owned by us from a newborn up to 6.5 years old when she was put to sleep due to losing her long-fought battle with cancer on July 9, after already beating cancer once in 2011.

“Always trustworthy with every animal and person in any given situation, Casey never failed to smother us with love even during her last moments comforting us! We will miss her human ways every day even through our darkest hours, forever we were truly blessed to have shared our lives with her.

“What a champion, thank you Casey from the bottom of our hearts. Love for ever and always mumma and pupa - as she knew us.”
