Farewell Beau

It is with great sadness that Chris & I have to announce that Beau, our lovely Labrador passed away peacefully on Tuesday 13th September. Beau, Kennel Club name Kenmilto Goshawk, was 14.
He worked at Bedford Prison as a drug dog until he retired at the age of 6. Chris & I were privileged to share his company and we hope that our customers enjoyed him too. He certainly became a relaxed pub dog – drug dog to pub dog!
Aug 2002 – Sept 2016.
