The Dog Days of My Life: #2 - Sombre

Sombre was my sister's dog. She was a gorgeous Rough Collie and had a long and impressive kennel name to go with her equally long and impressive pedigree. I remember her principally because she ate a £5 note which was a very expensive snack at that time. My sister was married by the time she acquired Sombre and I saw little of either of them after they moved away.


  1. You refer to her in the past tense. Is she no more?

  2. Sombre certainly is no more. My sister died a few years ago after 25 years of various cancers. She was very stoical, never complained - an amazing person and much missed.
