Unfortunately one of the members along with her husband had arranged to visit her elderly parents but were left with the unenviable task of burying a large husky dog.

Daughter and son in law were then faced with digging a large hole on a warmish day. The soil was clay. I’m sure you can picture the scene. Son in law thought he was going to have a heart attack trying to dig through the clay to the required depth. All sorted however.
