  1. Bless you hightail xxxx I have 2 others one of which is looking a bit lost as he has been with him since we had him xxx
  2. Thanks Hightail - i do feel really guilty because he was such a sociable dog who even at the end was fussing the vet and nurses as they prepped him - I have had dogs for years which were great but he truly was one of a kind - cant stop crying xxx
  3. Thanks CitizenB - in my heart i know it was the right thing for him but I still feel guilty x
  4. Hi All, Sadly my poor boy was PTS yesterday morning. His tumour had just got too big and we took the decision to let him go now before his condition deteriorated further. He was so brave and loving - I went in with him to reassure him and it was one of the hardest things I've done. Right up to the last minute I was still thinking 'is this right'! I feel so guilty but at the same time I know in my heart it was kinder for him - we had to think of him and not ourselves.
  5. what earth prompted the OP to ask such an odd question in the first place - what is wrong with you??
  6. What a joke that statement is from her! Ethical standards and treating customers fairly.......really........
  7. Thank you Hightail and CitizenB - he is an absolutely brilliant dog and I adore him - all my dogs I have had and do have now are great but his character is one of a kind. The specialist vet has prescribed pain killers for the next six weeks which I am surprised at giving the rate his tumour is growing - fingers crossed bless him xx
  8. Hi, Just thought i'd post an update.. After being referred to a specialist he had a CT Scan which revealed the extent of his cancer: He has an adenocarcinoma on his left abdomen along with a mass on his bladder wall and an enlarged lymph node in his abdomen. He also has a large prostatic cyst. Taking all this info into consideration and also where the actual main mass is located we will not be putting him through an operation and chemo will not help according to the oncologist so we are monitoring him and spoiling him until the time comes when he lets me know he's had
  9. Has he approached the mortgage company to explain his situation and ask what his options are? Also he could go and see a solicitor - the first half hour should be free?
  10. jackieandwayne, Thank you so much for sharing your story of your beloved boy - 17 and a half is a fantastic age especially with what he went through. I do agree that dogs are a lot more resilient and tend to get over things a lot quicker than humans - mine has had three bladder surgeries - the last one quite a 'make or breaker' but he came through as we looked after him really well at home and he seemed to want to 'get on with it'. I am going to have a chat with the specialist hospital who looked after him during those times as they specialise in cancer treatment as well to see
  11. Thank you Sandy I do like bigger dogs as well - especially Pointers - so loyal and loving and can be very good guard dogs - loud barks but only when someone knocks the door - not constantly barking which is good - brilliant dogs! Funnily enough we've always had gun dogs although never worked them. Best wishes to you.
  12. Oh bless snowdragon - very similar breeds! I have 3 German Pointers all rescued, the latest ate a sock about a month back and had to have surgery to remove it from his intestine! Now I have a strict sock policy in our house - do not leave them lying around at all! The one who is poorly at the moment can be very stubborn and headstrong when he's outside - in the house he is the best behaved.
  13. Thank you all so much for your comments and I am sorry that some of you have experienced illnesses with your pets also. The vet said he could last for a few more months without surgery but he cannot say for sure - as with all things there is no definitive answer unfortunately. He is a German Wire-Haired Pointer so quite a large dog - he is quite bright at the moment - follows me around the house like he has always done. It is the potential suffering that he may go through which is concerning me as he has been (and still is) a wonderful dog with a brilliant character -
  14. Thank you for your kind and wise words, much appreciated. At this point I do not want him to endure surgery as he has had a couple of big procedures over the years due to an unrelated bladder problem. I think we are inclined to go down the palliative care route however we are not totally sure...
  15. Hi All, Just today it has been confirmed to me that my beloved male dog has a large cancer within the muscle wall near his hind left leg. We found the lump last week and immediately took him to be checked - the lump is huge and very hard. Prior to this he had been his normal bright self, not off his food, not losing weight so nothing to suggest he was poorly. We have been told he can have surgery to remove it however they would have to also take a substantial amount away from around the tumour and then it would be major reconstructive surgery to close the wound. There is about
  16. igroup is still listed as a trading name of GE Money - their details are on the FCA register - all relevant contact details are on the register for public use as well - register.fca.org.uk - their ref number is 304175. Also there is a statement on the GE Money website under the heading 'PPI Insurance Important Notice' for info... GE Money cannot wriggle out of this and you need to keep at them.
  17. I've had correspondence regarding this and again I'm not totally sure what it is in relation to as I do not remember taking any cover out so it would be difficult to say i should be compensated as the product was mis-sold, however they must have some record i guess as they wouldn't have written to me - (sorry for waffling)....

  19. 'It was solicitor that Kensington used that gave me the information from their ledger of date, amount and who the cheque was made payable to.' Just a thought as well re this statement you made earlier - would there have been a reference number on their ledger as this may relate to a policy number as well?
  20. Morning, If it was A2B Loans and it was 2005 then the Insurer would still have been Amtrust. I would go to their website: amtrustinternational.com and look for the 'contact us' section. Use whichever method you wish to make contact with them, explain your predicament and see if they can help. They may still have archive copies of the underwriting bordereaux which would have been provided to them with details of all live issued policies on. You will have to give them as much personal info as you can from that time, ie full address, name(s) if joint cover, dates of births, total
  21. May I ask how you know that a2b are in default as I believe they are still trading? Their fca number is 300107 and their contact details can be found on the fca register under that reference - they are a2b mortgage company and I remember them...... To be fair as well if it is a policy from 2005 then the insurer would have been Am Trust International - their current fca number is 203014 - it may be worth a phone call to explain your dilemma and ask if they can trace a policy for you? Amtrust international.com Or was it a2b homeloans?
  22. Fair point Andy - sorry - just thought I may be able to help with ultimate Insurer contact details.
