Simply - My best boy,
Very sadly, Indy was PTS at the age of 11 years and 9 mths.
He was my darling boy and I miss him so much.

'You'll always be a part of me,
And in my heart you'll always be
Fly, fly away, my sweet Butterfly'

***********************************

Indy totally enjoys life! Spoiled me completely, as he is so eager to please that he gives everything 100%. He makes the others I show seem like hard work!
