She was fine today but this evening when my daughter went to bring her in from the balcony she found her lying in a heap, unable to lift her head. Her little body was shutting down.

We're just back from the emergency vet, who had to put her to sleep. She'll leave a big gap in our lives. She may have been a small dog but not in her mind!

So sorry for your loss

Sorry to hear you've lost Pippin. Sounds as though it was a relatively peaceful ending for her. You will miss her.
We met her at Malvern a couple of years ago. I love cairns, they're lovely wee feisty dogs, mines was called Dusty.
