Comments / pictures

Sadly Balguda’s condition declined more rapidly in recent weeks resulting in him collapsing. Sadly by this stage there was nothing we could do and with his favourite keeper keeping a constant vigil by his side, letting him know he was loved and offering what comfort he could, Balguda finally passed away.
