Marian Scott emailed;
"We had to say goodbye to Trouper who became ill on Sunday and was diagnosed with a
tumour on his heart on Monday. It never gets any easier no matter how many Bernese we
have and he will be missed tremendously. He was a very special boy and was the first of
our boys since 1997 to get over the age of 7 and every day was a blessing.
"Run free my big man with your brothers Brennan and Baillie over the rainbow bridge
"Love and miss you Marian, Margaret & Shelagh"
