"It is with a very sad and heavy heart that I write to tell you of our loss of Hudson. He was
given sleep last Thursday after bravely losing his fight with cancer.
"Hudson was my first Bernese and having him completely changed our lives! I went from a
convertible car to a small van then to a big van and from a tent to a caravan to then a
motorhome, all to make our hobbies more enjoyable.
"He was a joy to own even though he had his stubborn streak, He had the widest range of
expressions and was exceptionally intelligent, using both of these to his advantage.
"I cannot thank Bernice, John and Carole enough for giving us the pleasure of owning him.
"Anyone who knew Hudson will know he was always happiest in the shafts of his cart. He
loved carting displays and adored the Working Cart Course. He achieved the ultimate in
2012 by winning the gold medal as Top Working Cart Dog and then again in 2013. We
proudly have his gold medals and sashes framed and on display. His other love was attending
Di Atherton's Hydrotherapy Centre every week for his water treadmill session.
"Hudson also accompanied me to work every day and will be dearly missed by all my clients.
"We feel so privileged to of owned the most superb Bernese who was loved by so many people.
The void he has left in our lives is huge and he will be eternally missed by both me and Dave
and also Redford."
