It seems a very long time, but it’s a whole year since Dylan pined away for his brother, Dougall, and went over the bridge on February 26th.
Mummy missed him a huge amount to start with, and for a very long time after, although of course we cuddled her and helped her through it. She says she’s better now, although she still aches when she sees the videos she took of him.
I thought he was an interesting person. He seemed quite bossy, but he was very nice with it. Some pigs can be bossy and aggressive, but he just wanted everyone to do what he thought was best, and if you did that, all was fine. Mummy says he got a bit boisterous during his last birthday party, and she picked him up to keep him from spoiling things, and Kevin and Dougall and I ran around together just fine. He sat on her lap looking down on us, and he was quite calm. Maybe surveying us from a high point, watching over us, just suited him.
Kevin says life has been very quiet without him around. I can imagine that’s true. Never a dull moment with Dylan. What a character!
