Joan Cox 17th.December 1920 to 14th March 2015
This lovely lady passed away after enjoying an active life for nearly all of her 95 years. Joan was never happier than when she was sharing her armchair with any of the three Dobies in the Hird household! She loved all animals and although her first love was Corgis, the Dobermann breed soon found a huge place in her heart after fostering Dobermann Tara for her daughter and son-in-law when work took them to live in Hong Kong.
Joan went to live with her daughter Sue over twenty five years ago and in this time welcomed and helped care for Sue’s five rescue Dobermanns. Joan took enormous joy in the company of the Dobies and loved them all dearly.
Our condolences and love go to the Hird family and a heartfelt thank you on behalf of the FOND Dobermanns for the collection of £240 so kindly raised at Joan’s funeral in her memory.
Little Shona took on the role of FOND’s ambassador and found herself the centre of attention when she was first reunited with her admirer Margaret Young and then proudly received a donation on behalf of FOND. Margaret kindly presented a cheque for five hundred pounds, a very generous sum raised by members of the Scottish Dobermann Club in January this year at their Challenge Night. Along with Margaret, Susan Verrall, Nigel Morgan and other Dobermann friends Shona and her pal Seiger found themselves the centre of attention sampling tasty pieces of sausage and haggis which were handed out liberally by their fans
Shona took the whole event in her stride as though it was an every day occurrence whilst Seiger looked about anxiously and was somewhat relieved when it was time to pop back on the van and go home he positively smiled and raised his tail high once he had arrived back at FOND! After a busy day both dogs are now curled up fast asleep in the kitchen.
The Club are holding an event for Burns Night at Bathgate The evening includes a match night for club members dogs and a Dinner and Disco. They are generously donating half the funds raised to FOND. If you would like to attend you can find out more HERE
