Sadly, today we have had to say our goodbyes' to our gentle giant Samson. Recently Samson had been battling liver problems and sadly his outlook on life had started to diminish. So in agreement with the vet today, the decision was made to say our farewells before all quality of life was gone for him. From day one of Samson's arrival at the centre, he has been a true asset; one who pleased people, one who took part, one who did anything he was asked to, and one who's kind and patient nature will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Samson XXX
